Welcome to Big Buck Retreat!
Summer n The North Georgia Mountains is fun for everyone!
As owners of this peaceful getaway, we believe in making our home an affordable family getaway. Our rate of $120 a night (less if a week or more) plus a $85 cleaning fee makes our home a wise choice for families.
Escape to the gorgeous North Georgia Mountains to a relaxed, very private environment, situated 15-20 minutes from shopping and recreation in the quaint little town of Ellijay, Georgia. Just an hour and a half drive from metro Atlanta, Chattanooga and the Tennessee-North Carolina border is our elegant mountain top retreat, professionally decorated, furnished with top of the line furniture and linens and enhanced with all the amenities of home.
The 180 degree view from the back porch and patio is simply breathtaking. Overlooking the Chattahoochee National Forest and Carters Lake, this tranquil environment is the perfect spot to relax and recharge. Our 3 bedroom home (Master on Main, Queen and 2 Bunk Beds on lower level) is up on top of Big Buck mountain with lots of privacy and even a flat backyard for horse shoes and bocce, not to mention evenings spent around the stacked stone firepit. It is a home to relax, unplug and unwind. At the bottom of the mountain there is a stocked fishing pond too. It is a home to make some family memories. Check out our REVIEWS!!
There is so much fun to be had in Ellijay or "LJ" as we call it! We love apple picking (Red Apple Barn is our fav), going to the pumpkin farm and checking out all the Fall festivals. Carters Lake is nearby as are many areas for hiking, apple picking, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, gem mining, antiquing and more!
NOTE: The drive up the mountain is about 2 miles (7-8 minutes) with ups and downs on a gravel road. We are used to the drive and think nothing of it, but for first timers, it can be a bit daunting. FWD is recommended, however, my infiniti qx60 makes it up just fine. Please see the video section for a look at the road up the mountain.
