Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the cabin was perfect. The dishwasher was out on us, but hopefully no one else has that problem! The garage isn't available for parking, though. The drive up wouldn't be ideal for any lowered vehicle. I drive a 2010 Honda Civic and it handled great. The drive into town is a little far, so take the advice of stopping before checking in! We visited Amicola Falls and it was worth the drive! Will definitely stay again soon!

Beautiful cabin and surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, very clean, and nicely furnished. It had everything we needed and the owners were great to work with. We did have a problem with the water, but they responded quickly and handled it. The nearby town of Ellijay had plenty of restaurants and antique stores to keep me busy. We would definitely return.

HAD A GREAT MID-WEEK VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We came up for a late Winter vacation that was my wife's birthday present. The cabin was cozy, well built and very clean. It was perfect for two people. Molly met us and gave us great tips on where to go and what to do during the Winter off time up here in the N GA mountains. Molly designed the cabin, which her husband built. It is solid, and well insulated. With the leaves down, we had great views of the mountains from the cabin. And with the late Winter timing, restaurants weren't crowded, and neither were the roads. We spent a day at the Gibbs garden, which is just an hour away, and well worth the trip. Our favorite little town was Blue Ridge, just over the mountain. It was nice to visit when it wasn't swarmed with tourists.

All in all, had a great time here. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Charming, comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is lovely inside -- nicely appointed and more spacious than the pictures show. There is a vault in the living room that really gives it an open feel, yet it's still nice and cozy. The bed was very comfortable and the master shower is beautifully tiled. Molly was great to work with -- quick to respond and clear with her communications. All in all, very professional. I enjoyed my stay very much!

Rich Mountain Wilderness over 13,000 acres to hike into directly from the cabin. A short 15 minute drive takes you to the beginning of the Appalachian Trail Head at Springer Mtn.

At only about 20 minutes to either historic downtown Blue Ridge or Ellijay, we have the most convenient & private location! About 90 miles north of Atlanta, and 90 minutes from Chattanooga. There is also a 'back way' drive through a beautiful national forest to take you from our cabin right to the Toccoa River Restaurant and Tubing/Fishing etc area!
