About the property

Creekside Cabin, 1 Master suite, Sleeps 2, Air-conditioning, Wood Stove

NOTE:If your dates are unavailable -check out my other cabin--

#3777553--same area-mountain views-on 6 private acres!

Wow! A very popular Honeymoon, Anniversary or couple retreat....You won't believe this fabulous, custom built, 'rustic elegance' Hot Tub, hiking cabin on a noisy creek! Privately nestled on its own 8 acres, minutes within National Forest and practically around the corner from the Appalachian Trailhead at Springer Mountain (exceptional hiking opportunities!). Three rivers close by for fishing/ tubing fun! Serenity on the Creek, has a luxurious Master Suite, 2.5 bath cabin with a stunning view of the creek (the property includes both sides of the creek!). The perfect romantic, honeymoon, anniversary get-a-way. A luxury-home-designer and a custom builder created this awesome place - you'll see their expertise reflected in every unique detail.

One of my guests describes my cabin better then I can: 'A unique architectural gem set in total privacy in a forest of rhododendrons and white pines overlooking a flowing creek is guaranteed to please your senses. The song of tumbling waters cascading down the creek is the background music while you enjoy the hot tub after hiking the private trails on 8 acres. The Master Suite is like a tree house with its own balcony, fireplace and bed alcove surrounded by windows to view the forest. The cabin is well stocked with everything you could need. Watch an old favorite movie, or read a good book and warm yourself by the wood burning stove. Or, sit by an outdoor fire pit next to the creek and share conversation and dreams with someone you love. Then grill your choice of steaks on the gas grill while you watch the wildlife in the forest across the creek. A short car ride can take you to several waterfall and hiking options in the nearby wilderness areas: or, to shopping and restaurants in Ellijay or Blue Ridge. And don't forget the numerous places to buy apples around Ellijay. The pictures of the cabin do not do full justice to how pretty and private it really is. The condition is like new and the owner is incredibly accommodating and considerate of your every need. I highly recommend 'Serenity on the Creek' to anyone looking for a special getaway in the Georgia mountains. '

Complete Privacy & Seclusion - no other cabins visible from property!

Upstairs Master has a Queen, en-suite Master Bath and private deck overlooking the stunning view to the creek and beyond.

Downstairs has a large TV den with mini-kitchen, stunning views, plus a Hot Tub.

About Molly Ford

Having made Ellijay our home for over 25 years I cannot think of a better place to spend some time relaxing at than 'Serenity on the Creek'. This beautiful cabin was designed by myself and built by my husband. Having been in the architectural design business for over 10 years it was time for us to create our own get-a-way even if it is located in the same town we live in! This cabin was lovingly built from the foundation up with many unique features besides having all the comforts of home.

Molly Ford purchased this cabin in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Molly,

Few times in life so plans work out as great as one thinks...but this long weekend happens to be one of those times! This is a rare find; we don't want to tell too many people about it because it's so like an uncovered treasure in the cozy nest of the mountains. Wow! And.....we even got to see some SNOW!

Fun can be had in many ways including antiquing, hiking, and lots of our favorite....eating & drinking! THe movies are a nice touch but "Deliverance" should be reserved for the last evening of your stay...scary.

We devoted ourselves to experience all of the musical library and simple pleasures that the cabin holds. I've never cooked this much on vacation, but being here is quite relaxing. We're not saying "good-bye".....We will definitely be back to Serenity!

EVERYTHING it said it was!

  • 5 of 5

As we descended the stairs to the front door and main floor porch, I had tears in my eyes! Wow! This really is exactly what they said it would be! A breathtaking home away in the mountains. My husband and I spent a week celebrating our 25th anniversary. We began our days, slow and relaxed, sipping coffee and listening to the creek whisper by below. We enjoyed exploring most of our days, whether around the 8 acres near the cabin, or the lovely Mountains of Ellijay, near by Blue Ridge and Morganton. We shopped in both Ellijay and Blue Ridge. We fished in the Toccoa River and caught half a dozen beautiful brown trout, Molly even gave us a few spots to try off the beaten path. I had an exciting horseback trailride, with gorgeous overlooks! There are plenty of choices for dining out, however, there are also several orchards near by and we would stop and pickup fresh apples and vegetables on our way home at the end of the day. We enjoyed preparing meals in the well equipped kitchen. We would kick back fireside by the creek, or relax in the hot tub, before crashing in our lovely master bedroom, only to get up and start all over! What a WONDERFUL WEEK! Renewed, rejuvenated and refreshed! Ahhh :)

Serenity on the Creek Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is soo beautiful inside and out! No doubt it was drawn and built by a female, that being Molly Ford. The furnishings are so well appointed and everything blends harmoniously. We would have loved to sit on the deck and listen to the rolling, splashing, white top creek! Crack the window in the bedroom and go to sleep listening to the waterfall! Sadly it rained the whole time we were there. We highly recommend Serenity on the Creek cabin!

Oct 27th - Nov 1st, 2017 - We had a great time. When it rained we stayed inside and played games. Walked around the property and found waterfalls. Spent a few days in the cabin and a few days exploring the surrounding area. It was a great stay complete with snow flurries which was exciting (we are from Florida). The cabin is everything that we hoped for and beautifully maintained. We hope we can come back one day!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This getaway was absolutely perfect for two. Secluded and quiet but close to town (everyone was so friendly!) and area attractions. Loved the big windows looking out into the forest and being close enough to hear the stream. The hot tub was ideal after a day of hiking or mountain biking (thanks to Cartecay Bike Shop for the rentals). The wood stove was cozy and the house had everything thing we needed. The driveway is scary at first, but totally driveable once you get used to it. Thanks to Molly for sharing this sweet little place with us. A great introduction to beautiful North Georgia.

We are ideally located in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, just south of the Tennessee border and only 15 miles off the highway! It's 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 special '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!
