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.

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.

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for our 7th wedding anniversary and we loved it. It was definitely off the beaten path but that's what made it private and the view was awesome! So thankful for our time there. Close enough to everything but far enough away for peace and quiet.

Clean, well-kept quiet property with lots of charm in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

I loved that Molly, the owner, created a binder filled with hikes and information on the area and neighborhood. It was like having a personal concierge. It was easy to find and Waze directed us perfectly. Thanks!

Perfect getaway!

  • 4 of 5

A lovely place, warmed by attention to detail. We spent our 12th anniversary, happily watching the sun, mist, and cloud-shadows dance across the mountain view. Cozy, home-like atmosphere, peace & quiet, and seclusion. Perfect.

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!
