Overview

Bent Tree House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 14)

Secluded Mountain home, three bedrooms, three bath (Jacuzzi tub in main bath) with two of the bedrooms Huge Master suites. Private 6 person hot-tub on deck. Totally secluded. Come give us a try! One of the best deals in North Georgia mountain vacation rentals.

Located about 2 miles off of Hwy 52 running between Amicalola Falls State Park and Ellijay. At the end of a private gravel road, surrounded by 60 acres of unspoiled hardwood forest loaded with wildlife and plant diversity. Fantastic views throughout the property. This is secluded mountain living at its best. Not another building in sight.

. Beautiful hardwood flooring everywhere, twenty foot ceiling in the prow front living room looking out onto a spacious deck. A 6 person spa/hot-tub is located on the deck next to the fire pit and the charcoal grill.

With three futons (two in the lofts and one more in the downstairs TV room) as well as three full sized couches this roomy home can easily accommodate up to 14 people if needed. Both master suites have queen beds and large private baths. The third bathroom has a large Jacuzzi tub as well. All bathrooms have slate or travertine flooring. Two large water heaters make sure that you'll never run out of hot water.

The first floor master suite includes a private, 14’ X 28’ screened porch with fans and a comfortable outdoor sitting room of wicker furniture and a game or snack table.

The living room has a gas log fireplace with stone hearth, a 20’ high ceiling with the large loft area looking on to it from either side of the stairway with each side comprising a cozy nook for reading, playing games or sleeping on either of the comfortable futons there. A HDTV 50’ plasma screen equipped with a home theater DVD/audio system is located in the living room as well with a library of DVD and VHS movies. Rustic, but comfortable furnishings abound. Original artwork hangs on the walls and numerous custom details like the back lit onyx bathroom counter and sink or the inlaid patterns in the hardwood flooring add the sense of decadent luxury without detracting from the natural beauty and seclusion of the home and location.

A full kitchen with all utensils, plates, coffeemaker, dishwasher and makes preparing meals and entertaining fun and easy. Both a breakfast counter and the large round 6 person dining table allow for relaxed serving and flow during meals.

The walkout basement area contains the washer/dryer and a large game room area including a ping-pong table, darts and a second HDTV flat screen with DVD and VHS connected. This downstairs HDTV also has input ports on the front panel for connecting to video games if the kids wish to do that. The whole house is wired for cable.

The well maintained, gravel driveway and large parking area can hold 5 cars.

A mowed grassy meadow adjacent to the house has it’s own wooden deck and 12 person picnic table with fire pit. This location is perfect for lawn games, cookouts, watching the sunset across the valley and stargazing in the clear, north Georgia nights.

The end-of–the-road seclusion and the 60 acres surrounding the home makes this location truly ‘dog-heaven’. When we come up to our smaller home on the property, our three dogs can all run free for the duration without fear of cars or leash laws. More than 10 miles of old logging roads crisscross the property, providing ready trails for hiking at either a low intensity level or as strenuous as you wish simply by scaling the considerable elevations on the property ( From the base of Fern Valley to the surrounding ridges it is roughly 800’ of elevation) Walking from one end of the property to the other takes about 1.5 hours and is a nice little bit of aerobic exercise

Loads of nearby activities from antiquing, mountain biking, Scenic railroad excursion, horseback riding, hiking, golfing, state parks, tubing, canoing and kayaking on the local rivers, boating on Lake Blue Ridge, or just cruising the back roads checking out the cows, apple and peach orchards. Many nice, local resturants in scenic settings. Convenient access to supermarkets, a drive-in movie theater in Blue Ridge(one of the last in Georgia), boutique shops, even a Wal-Mart. The annual apple festival in Ellijay is always a blast, complete with baby animal petting zoo, pig races, hayrides, clogging, country music and the local moonshine museum. Family fun for everyone.

While the location is remote, we do have consistent cell phone signal so you can still be in touch with the outside world if need be.

About Sally

My husband Jon and I looked all over the state of Georgia until we found the perfect location. Ellijay is only an hour and a half drive from our hometown Atlanta. We love being in the Valley with all the different springs, creeks, and ponds on the land. We love all the nature that is so nice through out the year. We have mountain laurels, wild dogwoods, hundreds of wild flowers, and so many different kinds of fern!! It is so fun discovering all the differnt kinds of plants.

Sally purchased this house in 2006

Why Sally chose Bent Tree

We love being at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains with so many wonderful things close by. We love hiking the Appalachian Trail, going to Amicalola Falls, and boating on Lake Blue Ridge. We mainly love just being in the isolation of the woods, hearing turkeys, seeing deer and bears!

What makes this house unique

The greatest thing about staying at our property is it is so quiet! One guest suggested it was like staying in a tree house.

Best Family Reunions Happen Here.

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed here twice in two years. We live nearby but found we needed the space this home provides. Our family really enjoyed the fire pit outside. My folks are in their 80's and had no difficulty managing the stairs. We brought along a corn hole game and everyone got some great exercise, although there are plenty of games at the home already. The nieces spent the weekend in the hot tub, considering it was March, they had a blast. There is no competition for the master bedroom since there is one upstairs and one one the main floor. Good Time, Just Went By Too Fast.

The place is paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was in the area for my sisters wedding and I tell you we simply had a wonderful time and enjoyed the well equipped home and grounds the entire week..For starters I got lost on the way in running late to boot and had to call Sally to direct me to her home late at night and she was so gracious and helpful guiding me along.She is super friendly and always made me feel she was happy I called.

I ended up throwing a little cookout for the wedding party and the picnic area was just the most peaceful spot and a big hit with all the guests.My teenage kids loved the house and we all loved the area and had a blast tubing and sightseeing and just taking in nature.Elijay and Blue Ridge are wonderful.I am looking forward to going back.

Great Secluded Mountain Retreat!

  • 4 of 5
Rented the cabin with a group of friends for New Years weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Three of us have dogs, and it was great to bring them with us. They really enjoyed running around outside the house. Cabin is very secluded. A couple of us are hikers and enjoyed going on quick hikes over the property. Since we were there in winter - there were no leaves on the trees - but I bet the property is gorgeous in the fall! We enjoyed the big deck and hot tub. The kitchen is a bit small, but it was well stocked with cooking utensils and pots and pans. The owner is super responsive with any questions we had - a great owner to rent from! I recommend this cabin to anyone looking to have a mountain getaway!

Wonderful Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This vacation property offered everything we wanted and MORE ! The main home was beautiful and everyone slept comfortably. We were celebrating a large family birthday with guests ranging in age from 10 to 85 and there was something for everyone. There was plenty of room for family meals and lots of running and hiking areas for the children AND the dogs. Instructions for use of the house were clear and easy to find and the second house was great for some extra space. Amicalola Falls was only a short drive away as was the Pumpkin Farm and we stopped at a local orchard on our way home. The location is off the beaten path, but not TOO FAR, which was nice with so many young people. Finding the house was probably the hardest part of the trip as it is necessary to use many unmarked roads. Also, I would suspect that when the weather is really rainy or frozen, the roads may even be inaccessible with regular cars. The owner was only a phone call away when we had any questions. The price was quite reasonable for all of the space and amenities. Our family looks forward to a return for the next reunion ~~

Great stay

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this house held up to our expectations. It was secluded and accomidating. We did not see anyone near the property our entire weekend staying there. The local eateries were also a plus; a bbq joint called the Eastside Grill was only a 5 or 10 minute drive from the closest major road.

Oveall, great time, would love to come back

Most secluded cabin I have been to!

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time. So beautiful! Had a visit from four little black bears. The only thing I would change is the small kitchen and the twin beds are very firm. Other than that this cabin is amazing!!!! Had my 40th party there and it was perfect!!!! Thank you so very much!!!

Notes:
A separate picnic area with deck, 12 person picnic table fire pit and a large mowed grassy meadow is on the grounds suitable for volley ball, croquet, football etc. Beautiful sunset views while dining on the deck. Perfect for large family reunions. In addition, on the 60 acres we have a small, spring fed swimming hole with dock that is shared with our other, smaller house on the property which the owners use when we come up. The woods have a host of lovely trails for hiking or mountain biking, even sledding in the winter when there is snow. Gorgeous mature hardwood forest laced with many old fire roads, incredible plant and animal life, blueberries, raspberries and ferns everywhere, some as big as 4 feet tall! Four different little creeks running through the property made this location a favorite for moonshine production up into the 50's. Lots of deer, bear, hawks, owls, etc.. The picnic meadow is also an excellent location for stargazing and setting up a telescope.
