About the property

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

We offer a fourth night free - (not offered during holidays) refunded with booking. We now have Internet as of 4/2016. 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!

A place that has everything

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with my family including our two dogs. The place was very clean had everything we needed to cook meals and even outside was clean and tidy. Near many hiking paths so our dogs got lots of walks and not far to go into Ellijay for an ice cream. Would definitely come here again and recommend to friends that are looking for a great place to enjoy that mountain air.

Peace in the East

My family and I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at the cabin in Elijay. The accommodations were excellent and the property was located close to Downtown Blue Ridge and other attractions. We would definitely recommend a stay here and we would come back again.

Secluded retreat close to Atlanta

  • 5 of 5

Recently had the pleasure of staying over the July 4 weekend at Kevin's cabin. This is in an absolutely beautiful area of Ellijay that most of us would never even know about. There is plenty of privacy and room for those with family who want to just get away and be with Mother Nature. I highly reccommend hiking the bear creek trail to experience the beauty and silence of the area. You can walk to the trail from the cabin which I did and would recommend You will run into the tallest tree in Ga there if you stay to the right, it is an awesome view up there and so much more trail that we did not get to on this visit. There are plenty of stores to get your groceries on the way up, Ingles is nearby and has everything. There are a number of winieries in the area which we got to one and was great. There is so much outdoor things to do you will not have time to do everything and will need to come back especially in the fall when I am sure it is stunning. Kevin has a pool table downstairs that was well used by my husband and myself. In the mornings when I let my little dog out there were deer everywhere, a real treat for me. If you want to get away from the city life and just chill out with nature, not drive too far and not break the budget, then give Kevin a call.He will take caren of you. Hope to be back soon when it cools down some and the fall returns!!

Sincerely, Debbie R from Dallas Ga
