Owl Town Retreat Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Loft + Den, Sleeps Up to 12

Welcome to Our Ellijay Cabin, nestled high in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Georgia. A short drive from downtown Atlanta, miles away from civilization.

The perfect getaway for couples, families and friends. Our Ellijay Cabin easily sleeps ten or more guests and is just minutes from hiking and biking trails, multiple rivers and streams and terrific golf courses. For those who prefer indoor recreation, the cabin includes a pool table, foosball, board games and toys, and a 42' LCD flat screen with high-definition DirecTV and DVR.

During your stay, a short drive takes you to downtown Ellijay where you'll find wonderful antique shops, boutiques, wine tasting, and great restaurants. Speaking of food, you will also enjoy cooking a homemade meal in the cabin's gourmet kitchen or on the outdoor grill.

After an evening soak in the eight-person hot tub, sleep late in one of the comfortable king or queen beds, or wake up a little earlier to catch the breathtaking sunrise from the 360-degree wraparound covered deck.

About Rachel and Wes

My wife and I live in Atlanta. We love spending time in the North Georgia mountains, and we love our cabin and can't wait to share it with others.

Rachel and Wes purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Rachel and Wes chose Ellijay

We wanted a property close to Atlanta, with a great view, and preferably new construction - this property provided all three, plus it sits on 1.5 acres in a secluded gated community.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin combines a secluded setting with close proximity to shopping, restaurants and other conveniences. Featuring an 8-foot pool table, foosball, hot tub, DirecTV, wifi, and lots of books and board games, the cabin provides something for everyone.

Wonderful Weekend Away with Friends

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely amazing for a relaxing weekend with friends. The open floor plan in the main room was great for having everyone together as some people cooked or others relaxed by the fire. I would highly recommend this house for either families OR young couples. We had a blast and cannot wait to return!

Beautiful, homey cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful family weekend here to surprise my mother-in-law for her 60th birthday. There was adequate space for the 8 of us and we really enjoyed gathering in the living room and on the huge back porch. The views are great, and it's nice that there's plenty of space between the other houses in the community. The kitchen had almost everything we needed and it was nice that the grocery store was close. We enjoyed playing pool in the basement.

The only issues we encountered were:

There isn't a house number at the end of the driveway so it can be a little tricky finding the house.

The upstairs beds are a little saggy and not as comfortable as the other 2 beds in the house.

The upstairs and main level showers get backed up and the tub starts to fill with water.

These minor issues did not impede on our fun weekend though! We would gladly stay here again in the future.

Great home for our large family

  • 5 of 5

Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all the home had to offer. We had a party of 10 and found this rental spacious with plenty to entertain the kids. Their favorite part of the house was the basement with the pool table and foosball table. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We hope to return soon.

This is a lovely cabin. It is very well equipped. Our stay was most enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience at this vacation spot was outstanding. This is a lovely cabin. It is well equipped. It is beautifully furnished, and it is very clean. I would suggest to any of my friends, who are coming to Ellijay, to stay at this cabin.

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin, perfect for family get togethers in the woods and the mountains. It had everything we needed to entertain everybody in the family with 13, 30s, 40s, 60s year olds and a lovely dog! My in-laws quoted "we love this place because it has the warmth, it feels like a home and not a hotel unlike some of the "fancy" cabins we have rented in the past". It has a wonderful deck and the house has a very open feel to it. The hot tub was great and seated 6 of us comfortably. The basement recreation room is amazing with pool table and comfy seating. Everything was clean and very well maintained. One of the best part was that kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed especially the huge collection of spices and basic things like oil etc..(we packed a lot of food but forgot to bring oil ;)) They have good collection of board games and we did eventually solve the puzzle (with sea animals and fishes etc..) Trust me its a hard one so definitely try that!!

Sorry we forgot to leave a not in the guestbook, we were in kinda of a rush while leaving, but we will certainly come back again.

Few attractions in the area include: Amicalola falls (great hiking area), tubing/kayaking on the river, White water rafting on the Ocoee river.

Couple of suggestions:

- The basement and the main floor are awesome, the bedrooms upstairs could use a bit of TLC.

- The house is a bit hard to find because the driveway is bit steep and is on a sharp turn. May be a plank on the entrance would be helpful.

- When you are leaving the driveway and turning left onto the one way, that left turn could be hard to make as its hard to gauge the radius of turn so perhaps if you marked the driveway better with stones or lights that would be helpful especially for seniors..

Great, quaint place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very large cozy cabin with all of the required amenities. My only complaint is that the upstairs A/C isn't great and that some beetles were showing up in the top rooms. No idea where they came from but overall an excellent place to stay.
