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 oven 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. Custom made gift baskets available.

About Molly Ford

Having made Ellijay our home for over 28 years I cannot think of a better place to spend some time relaxing then at 'Rich Mountain Retreat'. I love to hike and explore the outdoors and this is the place to do it! Come see for yourself!

Our stay was wonderful! The cabin was nicely furnished and the view was amazing. The owner was wonderful and available if needed. We will certainly look to stay here again.

Highly recommend this secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

As soon I as I walked in I felt at home. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen. The cabin can seem to be a bit out of the way but everything is with an easy and beautiful drive. The owner as a notebook with suggestions of things to do in the area and directions on how to get there. We enjoyed touring and shopping in Elijah and Blue Ridge. There are, also, some great restaurants in area. A perfect escape from the busyness and stress.

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time staying at the Rich Mountain Retreat. We had escaped from Hurricane Hermine so this was the perfect getaway. The accommodations were super and we had a relaxing time. Thanks!

Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was a really lovely place for a relaxing time. Quiet, great view, great screened porch. The home was just the right size, very clean and beautifully appointed. The bed was comfortable and the master bath very nice. We enjoyed seeing the horses in the nearby pasture as well. The orchard nearby has the best fried pies! We hope to stay there again. Thanks Molly!

For my wife and I, we had a great time at the cabin, the " Rich Mountain Retreat."

  • 5 of 5

My overall review, the cabin was laid out well with the living, dining and kitchen with an open concept.

It was helpful for us to have two bathrooms and a laundry room. This helped us as my wife used the master bath

and closet for her space. I used the laundry room and the other full bath as my space. The screen in porch was

nice other than the light and the fan are on the same switch. We would have like to spend the evenings on the porch but did not because the light was on.

The only other problem for us normally sleeping in a king size bed was the queen bed. We thought we could adapt

to the queen for the three nights there but it was difficult. But on the whole, we had a great time.
