Are you ready to relax? Enjoy some fresh air, see the stars, take in the mountain views? Then it's time to come for a stay at Rich Mountain Retreat. Sitting on six acres the house and surrounding land give you plenty of room to decompress. Enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch, while you listen to the sounds of the forest. Just a few steps away visit the horses or feed them carrots!

The interior of this home lends itself to a refreshing, crisp clean feel with elegant style. All on one level with an open floor plan, vaulted ceiling in living room, central heat and air. Easy access with minimal steps. This home has recently been remodeled top to bottom, new oven added, and a new master suite bathroom. Located on a quiet country road it is convenient to both Ellijay and Blue Ridge.

Only fifteen minutes away from two of the main rivers; the Cartecay or Toccoa for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or relaxing. Hike right out your front door into Rich Mountain Wilderness or a short fifteen minute drive down the road takes you to Springer Mountain where the beginning of the famous Appalachian Trail starts or the Benton MacKaye Trail.

Whatever your needs or wishes, Molly, the owner, will be happy to assist you with any special requests or arrangements for that important occasion - anniversary, birthday, honeymoon or romantic getaway. Custom made gift baskets available.

Having made Ellijay our home for over 28 years I cannot think of a better place to spend some time relaxing then at 'Rich Mountain Retreat'. I love to hike and explore the outdoors and this is the place to do it! Come see for yourself!

Peaceful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week (11/19-11/26),and everyday was beautiful! The Fall Colors surrounded the cabin and You can look at them from every window of the cabin! The Mountain view was amazing! The cabin was perfect! Everything that you need you found it there! I love the big laundry room and the master bathroom with the fantastic shower! The bay window on the master bedroom make your view from the bed gorgeous! The kitchen have all the utensils and You can look at the mountain from the kitchen sink too! The living room very comfy and the lanai perfect for a glass of wine at sunset! Quiet and surrounded by nature! Very Peaceful Place! Super clean and organized! The owner very accessible and friendly! Thank You Molly for your hospitality! We are ready to comeback again!

If solitude and quiet is your thing this is your place

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cabin is located 2 miles up a gravel road in the beautiful Rich Mountain Wilderness area where you only hear the breeze in the leaves and birds in the trees. I have used VRBO for years and this is one of the cleanest, neatest, most charming cabins I have ever booked. The photographs in the listing are accurate but cannot convey the charm of the setting. Some advice - listen to Molly, get groceries before leaving Ellijay. It is actually not too far from town but the road can be a bit rough and a slow drive. (don't drive a low slung sports car) I highly recommend this listing for a couples getaway!

AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property - excellent owner - not just clean but SPOTLESS - well stocked in every manner - many items are new - beautiful view & extra quiet - the only thing you hear is the wind thru the trees - no neighbors - ate all our meals out on the screened-in porch - grilled every dinner out on the deck - did many miles of hiking which Molly has directions to get to - including the AT - had a fire in the evening to go along with our red wine - shopping in Ellijay & Blue Ridge - be sure to have one breakfast at the Riverwalk Grill (local) on Newport Rd beyond Aska Rd near the Toccoa River - this was our 4th cabin in 4 years (Ga-NC-Tn) as we like to hop around & it is the only one we'd come back to. Very nice.

Highly recommend this secluded cabin

  • 5 of 5

As soon I as I walked in I felt at home. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen. The cabin can seem to be a bit out of the way but everything is with an easy and beautiful drive. The owner as a notebook with suggestions of things to do in the area and directions on how to get there. We enjoyed touring and shopping in Elijah and Blue Ridge. There are, also, some great restaurants in area. A perfect escape from the busyness and stress.

Rich Mountain Wilderness over 13,000 acres to hike into directly from the cabin. A short 15 minute drive takes you to the beginning of the Appalachian Trail Head at Springer Mtn.

At 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 '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!
