Overview

About the property

The perfect cabin for adventure in the Bear Creek Rec Area or Pinhoti Trail

The Pinhoti Lodge is a custom built 3-bedroom 2-full bath mountain log home located just yards from the more than 40,000 acre pristine Cohutta Wilderness Area. Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia and Tennessee (where it is known as Big Frog Wilderness Area), the Cohuttas comprise the largest wilderness east of the Mississippi! With over a hundred miles of premier mountain biking and hiking trails as well as excellent trout fishing on Bear Creek within walking distance, come see why Pinhoti Lodge has everything you need for a tranquil mountain getaway experience.

In the morning you can awake to the mist slowly rising from the valley floor. If you're still, you might hear or catch a glimpse of a bear, deer or wild turkey. From the three decks you can hear the waters of Bear Creek while you enjoy breakfast or coffee and breathe in the stunning beauty of the wilderness panorama.

Take a soak in the spa under the stars while sheltered in the privacy and seclusion of the tall Hemlocks or roast s'mores in the fire-pit where an awesome bench has been constructed from a massive old cedar mantle. Later the two fireplaces and gorgeous white pine interior provide a warm and comfortable glow as you settle back into the comforts of the thick leather easy chair or sofa with a book or movie. Pinhoti Lodge's exquisite décor will make you feel relaxed, pampered and right at home, in your new mountain home that is!

Experience Pinhoti Lodge, you won't believe what you've been missing. Whether it's for an active fun filled mountain holiday with friends, family and all the kids or a rejuvenating romantic retreat, we'd love to have you come for a visit. Once the Pinhoti Lodge gets in your soul, you may never want to leave!

The cabin is about 15 minutes from downtown Ellijay in a gorgeous area (bear break rec area and the paved road going in on Gates Chapel Rd). The cabin is cozy and clean

Paradise in Georgia

  • 5 of 5

Who knew our evacuation from Hurricane Irma would be an amazing vacation!? This cabin is nestled in the mountains just outside of Ellijay - far enough away to be secluded but close enough to grab groceries. There are absolutely stunning trails to hike around this area, and the cabin has everything you could want to relax at the end of the day. Also, Kevin is a fantastic host!! He replies quickly and works very hard to help out in any way he can. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family along with our dog, enjoyed our stay at this peaceful cabin.

It is isolated retreat close to hiking and beautiful mountains. A short car ride took us to water falls, white water rafting, Carters Lake, small town visits, wineries, apple stores and more. Relaxing and enjoying family was the key to the stay. Enjoyed our week stay.
