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 (quarter mile) 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!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd occasion we have stayed in this cabin and it is still lovely. It is perfectly situated close the the Pinhoti trail for mountain biking or walking and yet close to the pretty village of Ellijay for shopping and restaurants. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and nice and clean. There is plenty of crockery and silver ware. Another couple of medium sized saucepans would have been useful, but we managed to cook everything we needed to. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Amazingly Cozy! LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved how cozy this place was and how amazing the owner was at communication. It’s nestled in area that doesn’t have a whole lot going on so it’s very private and relaxing. Just the right size from 4-6 people. Having a WiFi, pool table and hot tub made the weekend super awesome! Highly recommend!!

This property is beautiful, cozy, and well maintained. Felt like a home and not a rental.

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends rented this cabin together to enjoy the lovely biking in the area. There was enough room for all 6 of us to cook, sleep and socialize. The hot water tank stayed hot for back to back showers too, which is pretty rare to find. The beds were very comfy and the kitchen was well stocked with kitchen supplies, spices, and even some extra food. The frozen beer glasses in the freezer were a wonderful bonus :) It truely felt like a cozy home instead of a bare bones rental. It’s obvious the owners have a lot of pride with this cabin and it’s not just a source of income. We will be staying there again soon.

Awesome area - great hiking and biking

  • 5 of 5

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
