Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
A very private cabin on a beautiful three and four-tenths acre piece of property along Stover Creek and a large branch is available for weekend getaways or perhaps longer. The secluded screened porch with a luxury hot tub alcove facing the woods has the sounds of rushing water and wildlife singing to you every night.
Two full bedrooms, large loft and sofa beds provide total possible sleeping for up to 6 people. Two large bathrooms and a washer and dryer provide all the comforts of home. The kitchen is well stocked and appointed including a dishwasher and gas range and stove.
Of course there is satellite TV, stereo, and central heat and air. But the atmosphere from a real wood burning stone fireplace makes it feel like camping without 'roughing it.' Incidentally, there is plenty of firewood.
This wonderful retreat is in the Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area of the Chattahoochee National Forest, but is still only an hour and a half drive from Atlanta.
There is no end of fun things to do in this area. Hiking abounds: the Benton MacKaye and the Appalachian Trails heads are less than 15 minutes away on Springer Mountain, and there are numerous other trails all close by that lead to waterfalls and spectacular mountain views. Fishing opportunities in trout streams and in area mountain lakes are also plentiful and cater to all skill levels. Enjoy the canoeing and tubing on the Cartecay and Toccoa rivers, and challenging white water rafting is a short drive away. Mountain bike trails and horseback riding are also easy to find and just minutes away.
If you're not quite so energetic, you'll find the beautiful downtown area of Ellijay less than 15 minutes away. Ellijay has numerous antique shops and art galleries and small eateries. Ellijay is host to an apple festival in October, but the numerous orchards are open all year long and have tours, some offer hayrides for the kids. Old-fashioned train rides along the Toccoa River or a visit to an ancient American Indian site can make for a relaxing time in the mountains. The area is rich with history, and a short drive to Dahlonega will offer an adventure into the past where the first gold rush in the United States occurred.
The mountains of north Georgia are not touristy or trashy. The people are pleasant with character and culture. You’ll become a part of this place, if you want to, and then you’ll want to return to your second 'home' again and again.

Why The Owner chose Ellijay
This is a very private and special place that lowers my heart rate every time I make that turn off the main road on my way there.
What makes this cabin unique
I have the creek all to myself and don't have to share, the kitchen is easy to cook in, and the hot tub releases the aches and pains from a good days hiking or fishing in the many area streams filled with trout.
