Loved it! Very clean and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

I had to be in town for business and the cabin was everything that it was promised to be. Our first night there it stormed and we lost power but the owner checked on us and made sure everything was ok. The cabin was super clean and tidy. I would definitely rent it again.

Fabulous, isolated cabin

  • 5 of 5

Molly has a great cabin for getting away from it all. The view of the mountains is amazing. It is extremely comfortable and affordable. It's convenient to both Ellijay and Blue Ridge without being too close to either one. We went with her recommendations for Tocco Riverside for dinner and Canntaberry for lunch. Both places were wonderful. Saw plenty of deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, and rabbits. It is on a long gravel road, but we were prepared for that. Cute, horse decor. Nice wrap around deck. Would come back again!

Great stay at Rich Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Rich Mountain Retreat was great weekend out in the northern Georgia woods. The house is secluded yet close enough to town to go out for dinner or breakfast. The house location provides easy access to Amicalola Falls and Southern Terminus of Appalachian trail. Absolutely great view...especially when sitting in the screened in porch enjoying breakfast. We loved the house amenities especially the spacious shower a magnificent way to the end day after hiking.

Our stay at Rich Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I found the cabin just as the description said, it was clean and well maintained. It was just the right place for us to decompress from our job stress. It was very secluded with lovely laurel trees in bloom, it was a pleasure to just sit on the porch and listen to the birds and smell the clean country air.

I would recommend the property to anyone who just wants to get away from the stress of everyday work life.

Cozy, Secluded Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Rich Mountain Retreat. The cabin itself was secluded but close enough to Ellijay and the surrounding attractions to explore. We hiked up Springer Mountain Trail and to the top of Amicalola Falls before ending our Saturday at Cartecay Vineyards -- a very cute spot!

The house was well appointed and perfect for two. The kitchen had most everything we needed to cook; the new shower and renovated bathroom were wonderful, and we enjoyed great views from the porch.

Molly was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We hope to return soon for some R&R!

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!
