CREEKFALLS LODGE: SLEEPING PORCH, HOT TUB, POOL TABLE, FIRE PIT, CREEK & LAKE

Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Just Listed!!!!

The owners have spared no expense preparing this mountain retreat for your enjoyment. With a perfect mixture of genuine antiques and modern amenities, CreekFalls Lodge welcomes you for what is certain to be a memorable relaxing escape. With something for everyone, this vacation home is the perfect destination for your family vacation or reunion with friends. It’s guaranteed you will have a hard time tearing yourself away when it's time to leave.

This custom built lodge features a well-equipped kitchen at the heart of the main floor, with both an island and a bar for cooking and gathering. The adjacent dining room opens up onto an expansive deck with a grill, rocking chairs and outdoor dining; convenient to both the kitchen and the beauty of nature overlooking the flowing creek. Also on the main floor is the great room with comfortable seating, a flat screen TV and a perfect view of the wood-burning fireplace which is surrounded from floor to vaulted ceiling with authentic river rock. A second screened in porch awaits on this same level with an outdoor fireplace and a six-person hot tub where you can soak away the stress of everyday life or any weary muscles you gain while on your mountain adventures.

CreekFalls Lodge has three bedrooms and three full spacious baths, with a king in the master, one queen on the main, and a custom built bunk bed in the basement with a queen on the bottom and an extra-long twin on top. There is a day bed in the loft with a twin trundle (two twins total) and a small loveseat in the great room that pulls out to another bed. In addition, there's a screened in sleeping porch with entrances from both the master and the loft. The sleeping porch has two queen size futons for tree house slumber while listening to the sounds of the rushing creek below. You and your guests will have no problem finding a place to rest after hiking, fishing and shopping through the North Georgia Mountains.

The basement of the lodge is comfortably outfitted for fun and entertaining. You will find a large entertainment center with flat screen television and surround sound, a billiards table, a massive wooden bar and a card table which easily converts to a bumper pool table. There are numerous board games, puzzles, card games and even a cornhole set you can play just outside the door. Oh, and let’s not forget… another deck. There are 3,000 square feet of decks overlooking the creek and the lower level is no exception. Chat with your friends and family in the comfortable seating area, relax on the porch swing, or enjoy a cold beverage at the rustic high-top table while the creek provides a soundtrack for your senses.

Though the surrounding area has miles of trails to hike, bike, kayak and explore; the lodge itself is set on 2.5 private acres of beautiful wilderness. There is plenty of flat land along our beautiful Anderson Creek to explore. Sit in the Adirondack chairs around the firepit and listen to the music of the creek, or take a dip to cool off, hike the trail downstream to find Garland Lake for private fishing or allow yourself to relax and be mesmerized by one of the many beautiful mini waterfalls along the creek. You'll discover quickly why the lodge is named 'CreekFalls.'

CreekFalls Lodge is conveniently located between downtown Ellijay and Blue Ridge’s Aska adventure area. Within an 8 mile radius are the famous Ellijay’s Apple Orchards, kayaking the Cartecay River, canoeing or rafting the Toccoa River, wine tasting at the Cartecay Vineyards, an easy hike to the Toccoa River swinging bridge on the Benton Mackay trail, a wonderful loop hike on the Appalachian/Benton McKay trails at Springer Mountain (one of the owners' favorites), fly-fishing, tubing, plus many more activities to choose. If you love shopping you won't want to miss the mixture of quaint, antique and modern shops and art galleries in Ellijay and Blue Ridge, or even the Outlet shopping in Dawsonville. Ellijay is the mountain bike capital of Georgia, and it would be a shame to leave your bike at home. For you roadies, you will enjoy the beautiful views, twists and turns along Big Creek, Doublehead Gap and Aska roads. You'll even find the beautiful Amicalola Falls State Park about 30 minutes away. The cabin is stocked with books and maps to help you find all of these areas very easily.

Other amenities: Wi-Fi, DirecTV, three flat screen televisions, DVD player, cellular signal, separate home phone w/ free long distance, laundry room, breakfast room / sun room

Enjoy your stay. You deserve the best!

About Jackie Vaughn & Ruth Meyer

We are like many of you, very busy professional 'worker bees' who need more time for a relaxing getaway than we allow ourselves. With a passion for the outdoors and adventuresome spirits, we just can't get enough of North Georgia. Things we do when visiting CreekFalls Lodge: Hiking the nearby Appalachian Trail, kayaking the Cartecay and Coosawattee Rivers, fishing in the Toccoa, shopping in Blue Ridge and Ellijay, hanging out at Jilly's Pub, discovering the many waterfalls in the area, wine tasting at Cartecay Vineyards, visiting R&A orchards and seeing what our favorite youngest owner is up to next (you will know when you see him), lying back on the driveway and viewing the brightest night sky we don't see anywhere else, relaxing in the hot tub next to the outdoor fireplace, enjoying the fire pit by the creek or simply reading a book on one of the beautiful decks.

Jackie Vaughn & Ruth Meyer purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Jackie Vaughn & Ruth Meyer chose Ellijay

We searched high and low for our perfect second home and your perfect vacation spot. CreekFalls Lodge has everything we wanted and a whole lot more. The first requirement was that when walking out the door of our lodge, we wanted to feel as if we had just stepped out of our tent to a beautiful creekside campsite. Privacy, natural beauty, and serenity were not compromises. We found all of this plus many luxury amenities within the lodge and the five decks. And all of this being only 20 minutes from Ellijay and 30 minutes from Blue Ridge. It really doesn't get any better than this.

What makes this cabin unique

STUNNING Property~Our New Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the description given on the rental page is severely misleading and we were actually shocked when we arrived…in the most positive way possible! There is no way that Jackie & Ruth could describe the actual beauty of this property and home. From the moment that we first arrived at Creekfalls Lodge, and every minute that we spent there, we felt sincere excitement at the opportunity to be able to “live” there for a week!

Our traveling party of five was able to spread out and truly feel at home. While the furnishings are custom and spectacular, we never felt like we couldn’t use anything. The kitchen is so extremely well-appointed that I was able to cook for my family without any hassles – unlike other rentals we’ve stayed in where nothing was provided. Every floor of the home had enough towels and linens for our family and then some. I did not find one single item that was left out or that I was in need of. And kudos to the housecleaning staff! This is the cleanest home I’ve ever stayed in. We did not find a single speck of dust in any part of the home.
I have tried to find something negative to add, but I have nothing. This was one of the greatest vacations my family has taken and we feel as if we’ve found our “home away from home”. We cannot wait to stay in this AMAZING piece of “Heaven of Earth” again.

Thank you, Jackie & Ruth, for the blessing of your home!

Memorable Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Outstanding communication and service by the Creek Falls Lodge owners made preparing for, beginning and enjoying our vacation easy. We were two families -- four adults, and four children between 2-8 years old -- getting together for our first collective trip to North Georgia. We could not have been more pleased, except if we had a few more days to spend. The house is beautiful, spacious and well appointed. The house, property, adjacent creek and trails make exploring with kids constant fun. Because of the numerous outdoor adventure options, we did not even get to enjoy every room and porch in the house. But the hot tub, three floors of space, creek and fire pit were particular favorites for the kids. And we adults simply appreciated having plenty of sitting areas to catch up at night. While we did not even turn on a television, we did take advantage of the wi-fi to send plenty of photos to grandparents at the end of each day.
The house was home base as we ventured out to not only the immediate area but also Amicalola State Park and the Toccoa River Swinging Bridge, each between 25-40 minutes of gorgeous country roads away (a vehicle with high clearance is helpful for visiting the Swinging Bridge). If we had more time, we likely would have ventured into more hiking. The kitchen and outdoor grill served us well as we enjoyed making and eating meals together. And roasting marshmallows over the fire for s'mores was a vacation necessity.
The weather was great and a welcome relief from the heat and humidity back home.
We can't wait to plan our next vacation to Creek Falls Lodge.

The cabin was amazing, better than pictured.

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is perfect for a weekend getaway. As soon as we stepped through the door, we were in awe of the balance between rustic furniture and modern appliances. The kitchen is fit for a Master Chef, the immense amount of patio space allows for total relaxation, the babbling creek was beautiful, and the bedrooms were luxurious. Most importantly, the cabin was incredibly clean, and it seems like the owners thought of EVERYTHING you might need during a stay. Ruth and Jackie were easy to work with, and the cabin was very easy to find. Due to the weather, we were not able to take advantage of the fire pit, but that is just another reason for us to return!

Paradise in the woods

  • 5 of 5
One of the most relaxing vacations my family and I had in a long time. Cabin is beautifully decorated and pictures simply do not do it justice. I can't think of anything the cabin did not have that we needed. Well stocked and clean! My kids especially enjoyed the creek on the property. The sounds from the creek were amazing and we simply hated to leave. Jackie was easy to work with and answered all my questions quickly. Would definitely visit again.

Heaven On Earth!

  • 5 of 5
CreekFalls Lodge was the perfect setting for a week of nestling into nature in luxurious surroundings! We felt so spoiled as we experienced each and every detail created to make our stay more comfortable--from the meticulously appointed kitchen, to the thoughtful bathroom amenities (even a hair dryer w/a diffuser), to the comfortable seating arrangements on each porch, to the carefully folded towels set out next to the hot tub, to the Adirondack chairs around the prepared fire pit... The list goes on and on... My favorite part of the house was the sleeping porch. Since it was on the top deck, you were literally 4 stories up in the tops of the trees as you nestled under comfy duvets and fell asleep to the sounds of the creek below. It felt like you were in a tree house, and you woke to the sounds of birdsong. Even though there were other homes nearby, we could not see them from the house because of how perfectly the lodge was positioned on the property. As my friends remarked, "The care and love that has been poured into this home are amazing!" We truly felt that we had been invited into a friend's special sanctuary for the week. Jackie was wonderful to work with--she offered detailed information and patiently answered every question. She even called to make sure we had safely arrived and found everything to our satisfaction. The location of the Lodge was perfect for all types of hiking, kayaking, tubing, etc in the Ellijay and Blue Ridge areas, or you can just walk out the front door of the cabin and enjoy a couple hour stroll through the woods and wildlife sanctuary. We are already planning our next visit to CreekFalls Lodge! Thanks, Jackie!

The PERFECT escape!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here over the winter holidays and had the most amazing time! The cabin is thoughtfully planned, making the time away from home truly relaxing. (So often it's not!) With four adults and two teenagers we really appreciated the layout of Creekfalls. We had plenty of space to separately interact or just get away. Though it was chilly outside, the fireplaces and ample supply of wood were a perfect backdrop to our retreat. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home - we can't wait to get back!

Owner's Response: We are looking forward to your next visit. Firewood for the creek-side fire pit is in ample supply right now, but we can't make any promises to supply firewood for the fireplaces within the cabin. Firewood is easily found by multiple roadside homeowners on the way to the cabin. We love the hospitality and trust in the community: "Take a stack and put the money in the box."
