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.

About The Owner

I am an fly fisherman and hiker and throw pottery which I sell at art festival in the area. Please feel free to ask me for some good fishing areas for your particular skill level when you reserve my cabin in the north Georgia mountains.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2005

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.

My wife, our dog, and I had an very relaxing vacation at this beautiful, and extremely well-appointed cabin. Sitting on the front porch rocking chairs, soaking in the hot tub, and taking a quick, cool, dip in the back creek was very enjoyable. All the owners said about this lodging was accurate, and more so. Attractions and eating places were nearby, the property was immaculate, and the owner checked in with us to make sure all was OK. I hope to return in the fall, and would, definitely, recommend this property.

A great secluded cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We came up here with our two dogs for a quick birthday getaway. We had such a great time! This cabin has a very homey feeling with almost everything you need right at your fingertips. We loved sitting on the back porch and playing cribbage and at night getting in the screened in hot tub (which meant no bugs!). The bed was super comfy and the kitchen is stocked with every tool you most likely will need cooking wise which is a pleasant surprise. And the stream! We had so much fun hanging out by it and our dogs played at least twice a day in the water. They had so much fun playing in the woods and water which was one of the main things we were hoping for. We never even saw another neighbor during our stay. This is such a relaxing retreat and we will be back. Also, the pottery is such a nice touch that gave the cabin that extra personality!

Step Away to a Peace Filled Mountain Retreat?

  • 4 of 5
We go to nature to relax, rejuvenate and refresh. This cabin was a step away and right on time at just 1.5 hours from our home. The pictures and description were accurate on the site. Very secluded, yet easy to get to. We were looking for a mid week stay for which Eric accommodated so nicely. He was also very helpful with providing upfront details and anticipating our needs. He even called to check on us to ensure everything was in order upon our arrival. The beautiful surrounding to include the woods, very musical rushing creek, Hot Tub, outside fire pit and indoor fireplace made for a very peaceful stay for which we never left the property. Lounging by the outside fire pit, napping and reading beside the creek which is about 150 steps away. The cabin was stocked with so many thoughtful basics including all types of spices and seasonings, you don't have to bring your own. Bring gallon bottles of water or plan to boil the water if you are not accustomed to well water. The master suite was perfect with a very comfortable bed. Breathing that mountain air; we slept until almost 11am the first night. This room was perfect for hearing lovely sounds of the creek with windows open. Perfect Yoga spot upstairs to hear and peek at the creek.
We had the pleasure of meeting Eric on our way out and it was our pleasure. Great place with lots of character, especially the hand made pottery, black/white nature photos and unique art pieces throughout the cabin.
Just take the next step and find a way to stay at this great cabin.

Owner's Response: There is plenty of hiking opportunity right from the cabin and the trails down to the creek are an adventure all their own. I am glad to be able to offer the cabin to folks who truly appreciate the natural and secluded setting the cabin is in.

January 2014 snow

  • 3 of 5
Had trouble getting to cabin due to the snow we recently had. I had no idea it was that far off the main roads. And the road to the cabin would be that hard to get to. Guess would be great in the summer but never again in the cold winter months. The cabin itself was ok. There was no cleaning fees. Which was nice. But there was some things that need to have some attn such as the downstairs shower needs a new shower curtain. It smelled really bad. Smelled as if people had been using the bathroom in the shower which was really nasty. We sprayed it several times with cleaning spray that had bleach in it which helped. And cleaned the shower. But it def needs to be replaced. Overall we enjoyed getting away. The cabin was very secluded. And the creek was nice. I would have liked for it to be closer so I could see it out the window. You could hear it if you went outside.

Owner's Response: The cabin is secluded, and seeing snow is what folks who come up in the winter are often looking for. However this area can be difficult to get to in bad weather, I try to warn people, but if you're not use to this type of driving it can be an adventure.
I have replaced the shower curtain and believe that the sulfur smell from the well water in the hot water tank can be corrected. Due to Snow-mageton here in Atlanta, last week, I was not able to get to the cabin before this guest's arrival to check on things as I would have liked too. Of course, I would all ways consider refunding rent if a guest could not get to the cabin due to weather or act of God.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this cabin this past weekend and loved it. It's beautiful, well kept and included everything we could have possibly needed (even games for all ages, crayons and coloring paper, which made our kids happy!). We were able to bring our dog, the owner was very nice and easy to work with and the location is beautiful. Amicalola Falls is just a few minutes away which was a perfect outing for the day, and we came home to relax in the hot tub and build a roaring fire. Perfect cabin for a perfect weekend!! Definitely recommend it. Only advice- just bring your own drinking water! :)
