Nice, cozy cabin. Super clean, private and pretty area with nice view.

  • 5 of 5

As a fellow VRBO owner, it's always fun and interesting to visit other properties. We loved our visit to Molly's cabin. It was well appointed, super clean and quite comfortable. We had a fire each evening and enjoyed relaxing and watching a movie in one evening. We had not been in this area before and the cabin was a perfect place to explore Blue Ridge, Ellijay, Dahlonega, Amicalola falls and all the beautiful scenery in the area. So peaceful and quiet we felt relaxed from the moment we arrived until we had to leave. I would recommend this property to others.

Cozy Cabin for two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the weekend at Molly's cabin. It was just what we needed for a relaxing weekend. Molly's directions to the cabin were extremely easy to follow. She has lots of information about things to do in the area and provides excellent maps for a few hikes in the area. Bring some firewood and your groceries with you and you'll be ready to be settled in for a very peaceful stay. The cabin is tastefully decorated and is very comfortable for two. We would love to visit Molly's cabin again and hope to be able to do so in the future.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing! It was definitely a comfy stay and there were more than enough hiking spots to go through. It was just far away from the city where you get the peacefulness without it being too distant from anything vital. The horses were so cute!

Very nice, clean & well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Great location, we like the Rich Mountain side of Hwy 76/515, easy drive to both Ellijay and Blue Ridge. Older home but nicely updated and everything worked great, especially the wood burning fireplace - bring your own wood or an axe! Kitchen was well stocked however if you plan on preparing an elaborate meal you may want to bring what you need, i.e. spices, aluminum foil, particular pot/pan... or survey then go to Ingles! Molly is great, very helpful and nearby, I'm sure she would bring anything you might need we just didn't want to bother her. WiFi worked well - didn't do any gaming but it worked for map checking, email, etc., TV was iffy but you don't go to watch TV! I read somewhere T-Mobile didn't work but we had no issues, especially when you connect to the WiFi. All the other reviews are true, the setting is great but do note typical steep gravel road access. Would (and hope to) stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. For future guests please note that you do NOT need 4WD to reach the cabin--there is a gravel road and you do go up a hill--steep is relative term--guess it depends on where you are from--around here it's just a hill that any car can make it up! TV--is a flat screen, with Dish service --works fine, no issues. See you at the cabin!

Seclusion

  • 4 of 5

Rich mountain is the perfect place for a quiet relaxing getaway, once there you are the only person in the world, just you and the silence, no city noise no street lights at night, total darkness. (so many stars)

Molly is a great host and lives just up the road, and is available to help with any problems. The horses are a neat touch, and we enjoyed rubbing their noses.

The drive up to the cabin is really pretty if you take your time, and we saw dear cross the road twice.

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!
