Overview

Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Master suite, Sleeps 2, 2 1/2 Baths, Air-conditioning

Wow! A very popular Honeymoon, Anniversary or couple retreat....You won't believe this fabulous, custom built, 'rustic elegance' Hot Tub, hiking cabin on a noisy creek! Privately nestled on its own 8 acres, minutes within National Forest and practically around the corner from the Appalachian Trailhead at Springer Mountain (exceptional hiking opportunities!). Three rivers close by for fishing/ tubing fun! Serenity on the Creek, has a luxurious Master Suite, 2.5 bath cabin with a stunning view of the creek (the property includes both sides of the creek!). The perfect romantic, honeymoon, anniversary get-a-way. A luxury-home-designer and a custom builder created this awesome place - you'll see their expertise reflected in every unique detail.

One of my guests describes my cabin better then I can: 'A unique architectural gem set in total privacy in a forest of rhododendrons and white pines overlooking a flowing creek is guaranteed to please your senses. The song of tumbling waters cascading down the creek is the background music while you enjoy the hot tub after hiking the private trails on 8 acres. The Master Suite is like a tree house with its own balcony, fireplace and bed alcove surrounded by windows to view the forest. The cabin is well stocked with everything you could need. Watch an old favorite movie, or read a good book and warm yourself by the wood burning stove. Or, sit by an outdoor fire pit next to the creek and share conversation and dreams with someone you love. Then grill your choice of steaks on the gas grill while you watch the wildlife in the forest across the creek. A short car ride can take you to several waterfall and hiking options in the nearby wilderness areas: or, to shopping and restaurants in Ellijay or Blue Ridge. And don't forget the numerous places to buy apples around Ellijay. The pictures of the cabin do not do full justice to how pretty and private it really is. The condition is like new and the owner is incredibly accommodating and considerate of your every need. I highly recommend 'Serenity on the Creek' to anyone looking for a special getaway in the Georgia mountains. '

Complete Privacy & Seclusion - no other cabins visible from property!

Upstairs Master has a Queen, en-suite Master Bath and private deck overlooking the stunning view to the creek and beyond.

Downstairs has a large TV den with mini-kitchen, stunning views, plus a Hot Tub.

About Molly Ford

Having made Ellijay our home for over 25 years I cannot think of a better place to spend some time relaxing at than 'Serenity on the Creek'. This beautiful cabin was designed by myself and built by my husband. Having been in the architectural design business for over 10 years it was time for us to create our own get-a-way even if it is located in the same town we live in! This cabin was lovingly built from the foundation up with many unique features besides having all the comforts of home.

Molly Ford purchased this cabin in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Molly,



Few times in life so plans work out as great as one thinks...but this long weekend happens to be one of those times! This is a rare find; we don't want to tell too many people about it because it's so like an uncovered treasure in the cozy nest of the mountains. Wow! And.....we even got to see some SNOW!

Fun can be had in many ways including antiquing, hiking, and lots of our favorite....eating & drinking! THe movies are a nice touch but "Deliverance" should be reserved for the last evening of your stay...scary.

We devoted ourselves to experience all of the musical library and simple pleasures that the cabin holds. I've never cooked this much on vacation, but being here is quite relaxing. We're not saying "good-bye".....We will definitely be back to Serenity!

EVERYTHING it said it was!

  • 5 of 5

As we descended the stairs to the front door and main floor porch, I had tears in my eyes! Wow! This really is exactly what they said it would be! A breathtaking home away in the mountains. My husband and I spent a week celebrating our 25th anniversary. We began our days, slow and relaxed, sipping coffee and listening to the creek whisper by below. We enjoyed exploring most of our days, whether around the 8 acres near the cabin, or the lovely Mountains of Ellijay, near by Blue Ridge and Morganton. We shopped in both Ellijay and Blue Ridge. We fished in the Toccoa River and caught half a dozen beautiful brown trout, Molly even gave us a few spots to try off the beaten path. I had an exciting horseback trailride, with gorgeous overlooks! There are plenty of choices for dining out, however, there are also several orchards near by and we would stop and pickup fresh apples and vegetables on our way home at the end of the day. We enjoyed preparing meals in the well equipped kitchen. We would kick back fireside by the creek, or relax in the hot tub, before crashing in our lovely master bedroom, only to get up and start all over! What a WONDERFUL WEEK! Renewed, rejuvenated and refreshed! Ahhh :)

Dreamy Mountain Bliss

  • 5 of 5

This cabin FAR exceeded my expectations, I felt like a fairy princess. My boyfriend took me here to celebrate my 30th birthday and it was the most amazing vacation lodgings I have ever experienced. We didn't have too much trouble locating the cabin, and when we pulled up, we ran strait for the creek that is rushing right outside the back yard. It was truly bliss. The creek sounds so beautiful, that we were able to sleep with the windows open to hear it's relaxing sound. The cabin has so many little unique details from a relaxing bell outside the front door, face carvings on random trees, to a custom built kitchen island that has a branch as a holder for pots and pans. The amenities are all there, all you have to do is bring your personal things and food and they have pretty much all you need to prepare any meal. The cabin itself is huge,clean, and has so many places to enjoy yourself and relax. We built a fire outside in the fire pit under the full moonlight, and enjoyed the hot tub. Molly was very accommodating and helpful. She has a binder with all the instructions you need and rules, etc.; and even though the driveway is steep, you CAN get in and out on a four cylinder hybrid civic with no problem(hahaha). We were pretty intimidated the first time we went to leave, but once we got the hang of it, it was no problem. We decided to check out Mountain Valley Farms which is about a half hour away. They raise free range and grass fed meat that you can buy direct from their farm store. We also went on a horseback riding trail at Adventure Trail Rides in Blue Ridge. This place is great for couples, I would have even been content just hibernating and walking around the surrounding mountain property. I so wish we could have stayed longer, but I love thinking that it's a little piece of heaven we can return to in the future.

Ellijay Ga Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What can you say, we had a wonderful stay and a wonderful host. Molly met us at the door and welcome us with a beautiful cabin, and everything we needed plus so much about the area that made it so easy to figure out what we could do each day. But the view and the sound of the river on the property was the thing we loved each night.

Cuter than a Cabin - Our Perfect Honeymoon Spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights here as part of our road-trip honeymoon, and it was amazing! Pictures don't do this house justice. It's more of a high-class cottage or cozily luxurious home than a cabin. There aren't any mountain views, but the seclusion and pleasant sound of the creek more than make up for that. Molly was extremely nice and easy to work with - she even gave us recommendations for good hiking and picnicking. If we have the opportunity we will definitely come here again!

A great escape

  • 5 of 5

The medley of woods inside the cabin does justice to the great location in the woods by the creek. We savored the time in the hot tub, protected from the drizzle just beyond the railing. We spent time on all three levels, though the spring chill kept us from eating breakfast on one of the decks.

Beautiful, Peaceful, Serene, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, our first impression was, "Wow, how beautiful!" Upon departure, our last thought was, "This was amazing and we will definitely be back."

After a great deal of research, my husband and I rented this cabin for our wedding anniversary. We have quite a bit of responsibility at home with aging parents, etc. and were looking for a getaway that would allow us a few days of a relaxation to celebrate in beautiful surroundings. We found it at Serenity on the Creek. The cabin was just as described in the listing and had all the amenities necessary. Molly was an absolute joy to deal with and was always prompt in responding to questions we had prior to arrival. She even called us while we were driving there to advise of an issue in Atlanta which had led to a major traffic diversion so that we would not get caught up in more traffic than necessary. That was indicative of her thoughtfulness, which was also evidenced in all the special touches within the cabin and her care/concern for her guests.

I would definitely recommend this property to others and have actually already done so. My neighbor has already requested information for he and his wife to vacation there.

We especially loved the beautiful streams and sounds of flowing water outside our cabin and the hot tub overlooking the trees and streams underneath the full moon and stars. Definitely a spiritual experience!

Canteberrys and the Martyn House were two of our favorite local eateries. Highly recommend both of these.
