Private 3/2 cabin nestled between a pond and surrounding mountains

Overview

About the property

Private large back deck overlooks gorgeous stream fed pond. Cabin property is adjacent 25 acres we own and the national forest is within walking distance. Close to apple orchards, the Cartecay River, vineyards, and downtown Ellijay and located just 1 hr and 45 min from Atlanta.

The main living area has a vaulted ceiling with gas logs in the fireplace. There is a small loft that overlooks this area for reading or relaxing. Each bedroom has a queen size bed. Two of the bedrooms have a nice view of the pond and surrounding mountains. The kitchen includes all the cooking essentials. There is a washer/dryer, wi-fi, a TV with access to Roku and Netflix, and 2 sit on top kayaks for the pond. No land line or cable/satellite. There is a large back deck with outdoor furniture, a gas grill, and on cold days a gas outdoor heater.

Well behaved pets are welcome! No smoking indoors please. Please no more than 2 cars on the property.

Don't forget to go outside on a clear night. In the winter, Orion is impossible to miss as is the smear of stars called the Milky Way. Winter is a great time for hiking because you can see for miles and get spectacular long range views from most every hike out the front door. Spring is filled with the sounds of wildlife with singing spring peepers, crickets , cicadas and the occasional owl and whip-poor-will. In late Spring, the silver bells, mountain laurel, dog woods, flaming azaleas and rhododendron start to bloom. All of these blooms can be found on the 25 acres. Summer nights are delightful and long. After a day at the pond, you will find yourself on the deck until the late hours as the warmth of the day lingers with a chorus of bull frogs. Fall needs no introduction and is amazing for colorful hikes throughout the hardwood forests in surrounding areas.

Why Maya Sternberg chose Ellijay

I love the mountains and letting my dogs run free. I originally bought 25 undeveloped acres as a big playground for the dogs to run and for us to hike. The property is close to the Rich Mountain Wilderness area which means more hiking and no cars. When this property went up for sale we purchased it in order to control the tranquility on the 25 acres and have a place for family and friends to visit.

What makes this house unique

The cul-de-sac and side yard are great for star gazing in every season. In the winter, Orion is impossible to miss as is the smear of stars called the Milky Way. This is a great time for hiking because you can see for miles and get spectacular long range views from most every hike out the front door. Spring is filled with the sounds of wildlife with singing spring peepers, crickets , cicadas and the occasional owl and whip-poor-will. In late Spring, the silver bells, mountain laurel, dog woods, flaming azaleas and rhododendron start to bloom. All of these blooms can be found on the 25 acres.

Summer nights are delightful and long. After a day at the pond, you will find yourself on the deck until the late hours as the warmth of the day lingers with a chorus of bull frogs.

Great little cabin for us and the dogs!

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend get away! Lots of hiking trails on the property or just a short drive away. No luck catching any fish in the pond. However the dogs had fun chasing the tadpoles.

Cabin has all the necessities and then some. Would definitely go back!

Very relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice and clean. We really liked staying here. Just a few disappointments:

The beds and pillows were very hard and uncomfortable.

Needs a few more options in the kitchen as far as pots and pans.

Would have loved a clearer view of the pond from the cabin, and a wider path with steps going down to the water.

Driveway needs to be improved, maybe paved so you can get down to the cabin.

Also would have loved to have had a fire pit up closer to the cabin.

Cabin snuggled in the mountains! Relaxing, woodsy, scenic, room to explore!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at the cabin and enjoyed all the amenities offered. The surrounding woods and abilility to walk out the door for short or longer hikes was a bonus. Nice proximity to Ellijay as well. Owners were very hospitable. Thx much! We will recommend your place to others!

Lovely cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a family getaway at Maya's cozy cabin in the woods. If you'd like to have peace, beautiful scenery and fresh air, this is for you too! It's tucked back off the main roads and you really feel like you are away from it all. Lovely back porch with beautiful views, 3 paths down to a secluded and pretty pond and a comfortable interior- all that you need! Maya also supplies some kitchen staples and toiletries in case you forgot anything. Also, dog beds, bowls and food are available too if you needed them!

There are tons of things to do outside the cabin's door or just a short drive away, so bring your appetite, sense of adventure and hiking shoes for some fun!

Thanks again Maya and we'd love to come back!

Perfect Peace

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was more than we could ask for. Nice, warm, welcoming! The little touches were impressive...seasonings, coffee, simple neccessities in frig, soap, shampoo, laundry soap, the list goes on. Things I have never had anywhere else I have stayed. Lots of room to explore, all the comforts of home! Stress free vacation! Can't wait to go again!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a great place for anyone. Its located right at the foot of the mountains and the recommended "hikes out the door" are perfect. You can make the hikes short and sweet or go for hours up into the mountains. The private pond is a lot of fun as well. My daughters and I fished the pond every day!

The cabin itself is spacious and very comfortable as well. We would go out every morning for hikes and look forward to coming back and relaxing at the cabin each night.

Highly recommended!!
