Jim built this cabin and another small cabin on our property in 1995. He did all the work himself. He is a carpenter.
We are a retired couple enjoying living on the 6 acres with the cabins. Our granddaughter , Shayla, lives with us. I am a retired school teacher and Jim owned a cabinet company and a glass company. Jim built all the cabins on the property and we keep them in good condition and very clean. Ellijay is surrounded by mountains and hiking and tubing and all the outdoor activities of a small mountain and river town.
Sally or Jim Smelcer purchased this cabin in 1995
We are Georgia natives who grew up in Smyrna and came with our families when we were children to Ellijay to get apples and view the leaves in the fall. As adults we continued to visit and in 1994 we decided to find our own get away in beautiful Ellijay. Then in 1995 Jim built this Pondside cabin for added income. It was so popular he built the Creekside cabin soon after. We are sure you will enjoy Gilmer county as much as we do. We live on the 6 acres so are available to answer any local questions you may have. We are here in case the gas for the grills give out or any other problem you may have.
We are only a 10 minute drive from Wal Mart and stores surrounding it but still have the seclusion of being on the 6 acres with no other cabins except ours in sight. About 15 miles away is the town of Blue Ridge which has an old locomotive train excursion to another nearby town and back. Ellijay and Blue Ridge are filled with quaint shops and restaurants. You may tube down our creek using our tubes any time. No cost. Be sure to visit Amacalola Falls only 20 minutes away.
We have totally enjoyed our stay with you in the lovely Pondside cabin. We liked it so much we booked it for Christmas!!! We loved the Apple Festival. It was very relaxing and peaceful, Just what we needed.
Thank you very much!
The description of the little house was exactly as described and our hosts were great. We had a wonderful weekend and would return in the future.
Bed needed better mattress then it would have been a five star!
Great little cabin! Had everything we were looking for. We enjoyed being able to relax and unwind and it was a plus that we could bring our pet along!
My boyfriend and I absolutely adored our stay here! The cabin is so charming and the perfect size for two people. Sally greeted us as we arrived and was so sweet and welcoming! It's a great place to get away to, but you're still so close to Blue Ridge and other activities. I highly recommend it!
Arrived on time to unclean room and messy. After contacting owner, she realized she had booked the wrong week. She was able to refer us to another property, not with HomeAway. After calling other properties, we finally found a cabin two hours later. Please refund all charges.
We arrived to a cozy, clean cabin nestled in the woods. The stay was amazing and so were the owners, Jim and Sally. We fell in love with the cabin and area by the end of our first day. We hope to be back very soon!!
We live on the property in case you have questions or problems. Our home is about 70 ft. from this cabin and there is a cane break between the cabins.
