Overview

Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Creekside Cabin, 1 Master suite, Sleeps 2, Air-conditioning, Wood Stove

NOTE:If your dates are unavailable -check out my other cabin--

#3777553--same area-mountain views-on 6 private acres!

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 :)

Very nice property .... Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice long July 4th weekend at this cabin. The property is secluded, peaceful and quiet. It is off the beaten path, in the woods, comfortable, well kept and very clean. The stream on the property is beautiful.

As others have mentioned, the driveway is steep, but was not a problem for us. The cabin has steps down to the entrance and up stairs to the bedroom. This was not a concern, but may be a consideration for some.

There is a small grocery store ( Dollar General) available that is not too far from the cabin. There is a Wallmart and Ingles (nice grocery store) in Ellijay. Molly provided a book in the cabin with a lot of helpful information about the area and was great to work with for the reservation. We received emailed information - directions before we arrived and entry into the cabin was easy.

We went to Blue Ridge (approx. 15 miles from Ellijay) for dinner at Harvest on Main (need a reservation) several times because the food is good and the menu has good options.

Thanks Molly ! We hope to stay again in the future.

We pulled up to the cabin and were absolutely stunned with the beauty and serenity of the surroundings and the cabin. It was an absolutely incredible location to really reconnect with my wife and have a magical weekend together. We will definitely be back!
