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!

Wonderful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I went for three days in early April, solo, to put the finishing touches on a book that I'm writing. It was an ideal spot to focus and find my own rhythm, near the end of a long mountain road with no disturbances at all -- not even an airplane flying overheard. As an added bonus, there's a gorgeous wilderness trail less than half a mile from the house that takes you on a moderate incline through the woods and up to some stunning views. I hiked the trail twice (about 4 miles to the top and back) and didn't run into another soul once. The cabin itself is very comfortable, with a spacious deck and screened porch (where I did much of my writing). It would be great for a couple as well. Molly keeps everything in good order, and since she lives nearby, she's readily available if anything goes wrong. Not that it did on my trip... I hope to come back soon, this time with my wife!

Everything we needed was there and the view was amazing!

Molly,

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cabin so much. Over the past few years we have rented 4 cabins apart from yours. NONE have had furniture as comfortable as this one. I know it seems a small thing but, we have avoided, until now, renting another cabin because of this reason. So props on that and the bathroom is beautiful! We look forward to a time when we can rent one of your other cabins.

Beautiful and relaxing stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I absolutely loved it up there! It is so peaceful and relaxing. There are many little hiking trails really close to the property which we walked every morning that we stayed. The cabin itself is beautiful and very welcoming. The covered patio was our favorite! The owner was very responsive to all of my question and provided a lot of helpful information at the cabin that we used for the rest of our stay. Make sure you prepare for a 15-20 minute or so drive up the mountain to get to the cabin on a gravel road but it is absolutely worth it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! To clarify for future guests--the gravel road is 1 and 3/4 miles long--how fast you drive is up to you, however it takes me 5-8 minutes!

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!
