gorgeous, clean, and comfy

  • 5 of 5

2nd time staying in this cabin. It's spacious and well designed and so much fun to just stay in a cook and relax in the hot tub. Close to the town, but far enough away to feel secluded.

The cabin was clean, the veiw was wonderful, and the location was great!

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I had a ball! The cabin was very spacious with room to spare. The hot tub in the winter was a big hit and the ladies were pleasantly surprised! We would love to have this cabin again next year and make this an annual event. Dominic was great, will definitely try to get our booking in early for next year!

Beautiful, serene home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is quiet, comfortable and clean. We enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving with our family from FL and TN together in Ellijay, GA. There were festivities in Ellijay and Blueridge that we enjoyed and would recommend. We stopped by the close by Build an Ark animal rescue with the kids who enjoyed feeding the many animals. We went for long walks around the neighborhood and saw deer. The hot tub was relaxing and the view amazing from either of the two porches. We enjoyed watched football, movies, played pool, card games, backgammon and board games thanks to the owners. There was plenty towels and linen. All the modern appliances and cooking utensils were greatly appreciated too. There are several grocery stores and restaurants in town. We tried Mystic Pizza and the Dave’s House. We would recommend this great cabin and town to anyone wishing for a relaxing vacation away in the mountains.

Beautiful home and view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. There was plenty of room for the eleven of us and the home was very clean. The view off of the back deck is stunning and made us want to return when the leaves are changing color. We highly recommend this owner and property.
