Cabin--1 Master Suite, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2- Super Clean!

Are you ready to relax? Enjoy some fresh air, see the stars, take in the mountain views? Then it's time to come for a stay at Rich Mountain Retreat. Sitting on six acres the house and surrounding land give you plenty of room to decompress. Enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch, while you listen to the sounds of the forest. Just a few steps away visit the horses or feed them carrots!

The interior of this home lends itself to a refreshing, crisp clean feel with elegant style. All on one level with an open floor plan, vaulted ceiling in living room, central heat and air. Easy access with minimal steps. This home has recently been remodeled top to bottom, new appliances added, and a new master suite bathroom. Located on a quiet country road it is convenient to both Ellijay and Blue Ridge.

Only fifteen minutes away from two of the main rivers; the Cartecay or Toccoa for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or relaxing. Hike right out your front door into Rich Mountain Wilderness or a short fifteen minute drive down the road takes you to Springer Mountain where the beginning of the famous Appalachian Trail starts or the Benton MacKaye Trail.

Whatever your needs or wishes, Molly, the owner, will be happy to assist you with any special requests or arrangements for that important occasion - anniversary, birthday, honeymoon or romantic getaway.

A lovely retreat! You are truly in the mountains and able to appreciate God's handiwork! Lovely views, gorgeous ambience and a wonderful getaway! The highlight each morning were the singing birds and the adorable steer! He has tremendous personality and loved sharing the mountain with him! Thank you Molly for a wonderful experience! I will be back!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a short-notice opportunity to visit the Ellijay area. So glad we found Molly's getaway house. The house was clean, beautifully decorated and very relaxing! The unobstructed view of Rich Mountain from the porch is awesome. We were so glad to meet Molly. Having such nice owners to work with is one reason we like to use vrbo.

Beautiful mountain view

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished and immaculately clean. It has lovely porches, landscaping and a beautiful view. It is private, peaceful and relaxing. We chose this cabin because we wanted a mountain view, and we were not disappointed. But be aware that in order to get a view like this cabin has, you have to venture up the mountain for a couple of miles on a gravel road. We drive a VW Jetta and had absolutely no trouble making the drive. We enjoyed the quiet and solitude of the mountain setting. The sunsets were beautiful and Molly's bull is a delightful creature!

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Our visit to Rich Mountain Retreat was WONDERFUL! The house was more than we expected. The pictures of the home on the HomeAway website were pretty but do not tell the whole story! The house is exceptionally clean! The owners take great pride in their home and it shows. It is beautifully decorated and is so comfortable, makes you feel at home. It is secluded and serene. If you rent this home, be sure to print Molly's directions and use them! It will take you right to the front door. There is so much to do in the surrounding area, something for everyone. We did not get to meet Molly this trip, hope to meet her in the future. She was very helpful and her attention to detail was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this home and HomeAway....the whole experience was great. You will not be disappointed!

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5
Everything about Rich Mountain Retreat was exactly as described. The directions provided by Molly were perfect. We never got lost once :) The house is well maintained and just as clean as my own home. Molly is a very personable and gracious hostess. Her knowledge and recommendations of places to check out was spot on. We enjoyed the Apple Festival, antiquing and a day trip to Blue Ridge. The Farmers Market there was super fun and everyone was so friendly. We would definitely recommend a visit to our friends. We relaxed on the screened porch and watched the beautiful sunset over the mountain and we took some incredible pictures. Hope to return again to check out the new color scheme. I think it will be amazing.

At only about 20 minutes to either historic downtown Blue Ridge or Ellijay, we have the most convenient & private location! About 90 miles north of Atlanta, and 90 minutes from Chattanooga. There is also a 'back way' drive through a beautiful national forest to take you from our cabin right to the Toccoa River Restaurant and Tubing/Fishing etc area!
