Overview

North Georgia Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Relax in a luxury vacation home with professionally designed interiors.

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, 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 North Georgia Mountains

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our family came from Chicago with a 15, 13, and 8 year old. The size and layout of the house was perfect for teenagers. We were not on top of each other. I wanted to rent a home with a kitchen so we were not stuck with fast food and eating out. The kitchen was spacious with plenty counter space and tools. Every day we drove 25 minutes away to beautiful trails on the Appilation Mountains. Lots of rest fresh air and exercise. Also the cable and three TVs were enjoyable during downtime. The house was immaculate and charming. Thank you.

The cabin was very clean and well appointed. Everything was well thought out for the guest.

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with how well the cabin was maintained. Everything was spotless, in working order and beautifully decorated. You can tell that it is a beloved home. We really enjoyed the outside of the cabin as well. The firepit down by the babbling stream was fantastic. There firewood was well stocked. The porches were wonderful. The hot tub with the woodburning fireplace beside it and the twinkling lights above was incredibly relaxing after a long hiking day. We didn't get to use the sleeping porch because of the night time temperatures but my sons want to come back when its warmer and try it out. The master bedroom was beautiful and spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. There were five of us during the stay but the cabin could easily handle more guests, especially families with smaller children. I would highly recommend the cabin to anyone. We hope to come back soon!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

CreekFalls Lodge was the perfect getaway for our family! The property is immaculately clean, very well appointed and the scenery and sounds of the flowing creek behind the cabin are a little piece of heaven! It's the best of both worlds - feels utterly secluded yet conveniently located to all shopping, trout fishing and other top tourist spots in the area. The owners are a pleasure to work with as well; prompt and courteous in all interactions. We are already considering another trip to this lovely cabin.

Amazing Comfort & Attention to Detail!

  • 5 of 5

While the home looks great online, it's even better than imagined in person. The owners have taken great care to create an incredibly comfortable, clean and well-thought out cabin experience. There are four decks to enjoy, and the relaxing flow of the river below to listen to whenever you want. We also enjoyed fishing in the evenings (rainbow trout) from the creek below. We would absolutely stay there again. We loved our week as it was a mix of relaxation and fun! During our stay we went to downtown Ellijay, downtown Blue Ridge, ziplining, horseback riding, gold/gem-mining in Dahlonega and also visited the swinging bridge over the Tacooa river. If we had stayed another week, there would have more time to explore even more!

Peaceful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this lovely cabin. This place is awesome inside and out. So well maintained and has that comfy home feel. The kitchen is very well stocked and clean. Loved the sitting room off the kitchen for early morning coffee and quiet time. So much room upstairs and down for playing games or watching movies. Loved sitting by fire pit and listening to the creek..so peaceful. Can't wait till next year.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I had an amazing stay at the Creekfalls Lodge. We stayed only 3 nights but wish we could have stayed much longer. The owners really thought of everything in putting together this amazing cabin. We especially loved the setting with the view of the creek and the privacy and solitude that this place offered. The place was clean and it showed pride of ownership. We can't wait to come back. Next time we will stay much longer.

CreekFalls Lodge is located between the exciting Aska Adventure Area and the famous Ellijay Apple Orchards. We recommend checking out R&A Orchards at any time of the year, not only for their amazing varieties of apples, but for their delicious Apple Cider and Apple Bread. For those of you adventurous types, try tubing, kayaking or canoeing down the Cartecay and Toccoa Rivers, only minutes away.
