This is a very private cabin on a beautiful large 3.5 acre lot. It is in a small community of larger plot mini farms along a secluded section of Stover Creek. This rustic and well maintained chink log cabin is in it's own valley and neighbors are out of view, even in winter months. The large screened porch, with a luxurious hot tub, faces the woods. The relaxing sounds of nature and rushing water will wash away the worries of city life.
Two full bedrooms, large loft and sofa beds provide sleeping for up to 6 adults comfortably. Two large bathrooms and a washer and dryer provide facilities for all guests’ cleaning needs. The kitchen is well appointed, including a large refrigerator, a dishwasher and a full size gas range and stove.
There is Direct TV, phone service and DSL WiFi, a sound system, and central heat and air. The atmosphere from a real wood burning stone fireplace, with a gas starter, makes it feel like camping without 'roughing it.' Firewood is provided.
This wonderful retreat is in the Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area of the Chattahoochee National Forest, but is still only an hour and a half drive from Atlanta.
There are lots fun things to do in this area. Hiking abounds: the Benton MacKaye and the Appalachian Trails heads are about 12 miles away on Springer Mountain, and there are numerous hiking trails close by that lead to several waterfalls, a swinging bridge, and spectacular mountain views. Fishing opportunities in the numerous trout streams and in area mountain lakes are plentiful and cater to all skill levels. The kayaking and tubing opportunities on the Cartecay and Toccoa rivers are very close by and the shuttle services are inexpensive and easy to navigate. More challenging guided white water rafting is a short drive away, as well. Mountain bike trails and horseback riding are also easy to locate and enjoy.
Beautiful downtown Ellijay is about 15 miles away. Ellijay has numerous antique shops and art galleries and small eateries. Ellijay is host to an apple festival in October, while the numerous orchards are open all year long and have tours, some offer hayrides and petting areas for the kids. The city of Blue Ridge is about 25 miles from this cabin. Blue Ridge offers old-fashioned train rides along the Toccoa River and plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to enjoy as well. The entire area is rich with history and southern culture and charm.
The mountains of northwest Georgia are not overly touristy or trashy. The locals have character are pleasant and eager to please visitors. Simply driving through this naturally beautiful area is a scenic adventure. Come see for yourself, and I’m sure you’ll have a difficult time keeping this place a secret!

I am an fly fisherman and hiker and throw pottery which I sell at art festival in the Atlanta area. Please feel free to ask me for some good fishing areas for your particular skill level or the location for some of my favorite hikes.
Eric L Shaw purchased this cabin in 2005
This is a very private and special place that relaxes me every time I make that turn off the main road on my way there.
I have the creek all to myself and don't have to share, the kitchen is easy to cook in, and the hot tub releases the aches and pains from a good days hiking or fishing in the many area streams filled with trout.
This is our 4th time at Eric's Just a Strp Away cabin. This year I invited my wifes brother and his family to join us for the Ellijay Apple festival. We had such a great time and the comfort of this cabin makes it so enjoyable to return to after a long day. The hot tub is amazing to relax in with a cold beer or wine while a great dinner is being prepared. The kitchen has any possible utensil you would need along with both gas and charcole grills. It is so secluded and comfortable you will not want to leave. We will return for our 5th time next year.
The cabin and property are very nice . We enjoyed the privacy and the creek out back. The hot tub was great! . The cabin has everything you will need ,plenty of towels,blankets and pillows. The creek is beautiful and perfect to take a dip or sit in a chair by the shore to relax. I would rate this 5 stars if the bed would have been comfortable, the mattress is old and broken down and does not contribute to a good nights sleep. If you are looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle of the world, this is it!
"Just a Step Away" cabin has it all! It is in a secluded, wooded spot where you can enjoy wildlife visits, a lovely creek with great water sound that fills the entire area with a feeling of relaxation, shady walking paths down to the creek, a fire pit, screened in back porch with a huge hot tub that is perfect after a day of hiking, and the cabin itself is just beautiful. The cabin was clean and stocked with everything you might need. The beds were cozy with plenty of pillows. The owner called during our stay to make sure everything was to our liking and was quick with a recommendation of some fun spots to hike and visit. This cabin was perfect to return to each evening after hiking rugged trails to soak our tired muscles in the hot tub, grill a nice big steak while sipping local strawberry wine in the evenings, and just listening to the musical sounds of the creek. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away from it all and wanting to enjoy the North Georgia mountains. We will be back again!
The cabin is absolutely beautiful! It is VERY secluded and peaceful. You could stay a week and never see anyone if you wanted to. There was plenty of room for my family of 5. I hope to go back when it's cooler so that I can enjoy the porches.
It was an awesome weekend...enjoyed the natural beauty of the mountain getaway. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed, very clean, and very comfortable..Eric was very helpful..thoroughly enjoyed..and hope to return next year!!!
The cabin has much to recommend it. 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms- it can handle a big family or extended family. Plus furry family members allowed. It is furnished with all you need. Linens, towels, and pretty much everything you need in the kitchen including big and small appliances. There are games for all ages. There is DirecTV and wifi internet but cell phone service was non-existent for T-Mobile . Cabin phone service was LOCAL calls only.
The only drawback for us was its isolated location, with a mile plus of single lane gravel road access.
Ellijay is host to an apple festival in October, but some of the numerous orchards are open all year long and have tours; some offer hayrides for the kids. Old-fashioned train rides along the river or a visit to an ancient American Indian site can make for a relaxing time in the mountains
