About Sally or Jim Smelcer

We are a retired couple enjoying living on the 6 acres with the cabins. Our granddaughter , Shayla, lives with us. I am a retired school teacher and Jim owned a cabinet company and a glass company. Jim built all the cabins on the property and we keep them in good condition and very clean. Ellijay is surrounded by mountains and hiking and tubing and all the outdoor activities of a small mountain and river town.

Sally or Jim Smelcer purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Sally or Jim Smelcer chose Ellijay

We are Georgia natives who grew up in Smyrna and came with our families when we were children to Ellijay to get apples and view the leaves in the fall. As adults we continued to visit and in 1994 we decided to find our own get away in beautiful Ellijay. Then in 1995 Jim built this Pondside cabin for added income. We are sure you will enjoy Gilmer county as much as we do. We live on the 6 acres so are available to answer any local questions you may have. We are here in case the gas for the grills give out or any other problem you may have.

What makes this cabin unique

We are only a 10 minute drive from Wal Mart and stores surrounding it but still have the seclusion of being on the 6 acres with no other cabins except ours in sight. About 15 miles away is the town of Blue Ridge which has an old locomotive train excursion to another nearby town and back. Ellijay and Blue Ridge are filled with quaint shops and restaurants. You may tube down our creek using our tubes any time. No cost. Be sure to visit Amacalola Falls only 20 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have totally enjoyed our stay with you in the lovely Pondside cabin. We liked it so much we booked it for Christmas!!! We loved the Apple Festival. It was very relaxing and peaceful, Just what we needed.

Thank you very much!

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is perfect for a couple who wants a quiet romantic, getaway. The owners allowed us to bring our dog for a very reasonable fee and they had everything ready for us when we arrived. The cabin is just as described, it is small and cozy with a great view. The internet only works when you're on the top floor, but that wasn't terribly inconvenient. The owners live there on site and are very friendly. You will not regret booking this cabin!

Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great time celebrating our 26th anniversary. The couple greeted us when we arrived and informed us of all the local eating places, shopping, and sites we may want to see. We were close enough to Blue Ridge to visit there easily. We loved the isolation of the cabins but at the same time being close enough to get to town in about 10 minutes. We loved the small cozy cabins, hot tub, internet access and the river that ran behind the cabins which we tubed down one day. It was great having a kitchen for snacks, cooking, or just reheating left overs. I would recommend this quiet hide away place to others who are looking for a diamond in the rough. We are already trying to see if we can work in a trip back in the Fall. Loved it much!!!!

not private

  • 2 of 5
what this description doesn't tell you is that this cabin is in a neighborhood. the pictures all show you no other cabins, which we liked, and since we came from the city all we wanted was privacy. but once we got there, we realized that the cabin is in a regular neighborhood, in a cul de sac w/ several other houses feet away. we were not able to let our dog run around b/c everywhere was private property. we also couldn't get the temperature right in the cabin. it became freezing at night, b/c there is no central heat, only fireplace and propane heat i think. we left early, definitely not what we thought...i should have asked about the privacy before hand, i always do this now.

Owner's Response: To our future guests,
The cul de sac she speaks of is the 10 ft wide gravel driveway leading to our home and the 2 cabins we offer for vacationing. You cannot see any other houses from any windows or decks so we fail to see how privacy is a problem. It is certainly not a neighborhood. There is a cane brake between the cabin and our house and at least 40 yards. We have not posted any limiting signs such as "private property" or "no tresspassing " on our 6 acres. The cabin has a window air conditioner about which no one has complained. It also has a wall unit gas heater, new last year and a ceiling fan for even heat .There is a box fan if needed. One has only to read all our other reviews to get a true idea of what this cabin is like. Also you are told on arrival if there is something you need you are to readily ask for it. We did not hear from this renter the 2 nights she was here. There is also a sign stating if there is anything you need to ask. The visit was March 18 and the weather did not even call for any air conditioning or heat. We apologize for any inaccuracies she may have perceived but everything is as represented on our site. Thank you for your time.

Surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Pondside. It is such a cozy cabin that has everything you could need. The fireplace is charming and the hot tub is relaxing, love the lofted bed too. I will definitely be back - it was an affordable, clean, and welcoming location in a beautiful setting. Thank you Jim and Sally!
