Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Ellijay - Hemlock Creek Cabin

Awesome Log Cabin: 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath On 700 Feet Of Rushing Waters

Hemlock Creek Cabin

Get your sanity back! This is a spa for the soul. Always a vacation home, first time rented. Everything imaginable is here. A private valley among the majestic hemlocks set the mood of being nestled away. Nearly a quarter mile of cascading creek winds through these 5 acres. This is the place to escape the stresses of life. You’ll go home with a “new lease on life.” This log cabin sits just 20 feet from the water’s edge in the bend of Vandergriff Creek. Fell like a king in the massive log bed of the master suite with a private porch. Crack the door and be lulled to sleep by the babbling waters. By the time the sun peaks over the mountain, you’ve been walking path along the creek drawn by its soothing spell. Coffee in the swing will set your pace for a relaxing day. Lots of old-school fun: darts, horseshoes, bocci-ball and the swing.

Three bedrooms all on one floor make it easy. Lots of space in 2,200 sq. feet. Grill like a master chef on the big green egg. All you need is the steaks. Everything is here. The kitchen is equipped just like home. Connect to the outside world with Wifi, Facetime, Netflix, Direct TV with NFL package on 55” super-HD TV with Rockfish surround sound if you have to. Or escape completely relaxing under the hemlocks – probably why you came. Try a fire under the stars at our outdoor fire pit. The wood is all stacked. Lots to do nearby. World-class trout stream a few miles away with the Cohutta Fly Fishing School. Head out to Tube the Cartecay River in one direction or kayak the Toccoa in the other. The Appalachian and Benton-MacKaye trails are not far. And nobody should come to the mountains without seeing Amicalola Falls 25 minutes away. Adorable Ellijay has lots of good restaurants - also 25 minutes away.

Owner is a licensed Georgia realtor.

What makes this cabin unique

Tranquility. This is the place to come to escape the stresses of this world. The talking creek washes them away. Dozens of vantage points to let it immerse you. We looked for four years then knew instantly that this was where we wanted to spend our days. Never rented before, its always been a family retreat and feels like it. We hope you find what we experience each time we come.

We'll Be Back

  • 5 of 5

We used this as our 'Base Camp' during my daughter's wedding. What you see/read is what you get - and then some. The cabin is gorgeous, the scenery is beautiful, The ever-babbling creek is 8 feet from the patio door. It was the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big wedding. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We're already planning a return trip when we can spend more time 'at home'.

Pinch me- This is too good to be real!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving, we were blown away by the beauty of this cabin, inside and out! We were looking for a cabin with a creek, and this one winds around the property and passes right in front of the deck,. The solitude plus the gentle sound of the creek provides the perfect atmosphere for peace and tranquility. There is a stone fire ring with lots of cut firewood and kindling for those who like to spend their evenings fireside. The cabin is beautifully decorated and spacious with plenty of seating for relaxation and lots of windows to enjoy the incredible view. We didn't watch much TV, but the large 3D screen smart TV has surround sound and does all. We enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and my sister fell in love with the Green Egg. She made the most amazing baby back ribs! There is a front porch, back deck, and screened in porch for those who like to relax outside, along with a swing down by the creek.

We have stayed in many cabins in North Georgia. This one is our very favorite!

Great grounds to explore, excellent cabin and wonderful owners.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two children ages four and six stayed here for a nice relaxing weekend. The property is very well-kept with a nice Creek and plenty of places to explore. The cabin itself has three very comfortable bedrooms, a loft, and many nice amenities. It was clean, and it has been a pleasure coordinating with the owners. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation at your beautiful cabin with our children and grandchildren. The cabin was beautifully decorated, spacious, and we loved the split open floor plan We sipped our morning and evening coffee on the decks overlooking the soothing creek. After daily excursions, we enjoyed our evening meals in the screened dining area off of the deck. Evenings around the crackling fire making s'mores, roasting marshmallows, sharing stories, and special memories were enjoyed by all. All of our family agreed this was by far their favorite cabin and vacation of all times. I think we all even relaxed more being free of cell phone service. We were even able to see a bear and other wildlife. The owners have thought of every detail to make their guests' stay accommodating. Can't wait to come for our next vacation!

Most relaxing place ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent our 14th wedding anniversary at the cabin. It was amazing! When you drive up, you know it's going to be nice. But then you go out on the back porch, and it's breathtaking. We played games, grilled steaks on their Green Egg, slept in, took walks, sat by the creek, etc. It was so relaxing. We also enjoyed the downtown area a ton and explored a nearby waterfall. My only regret is the slight guilt I have not bringing our kids. They would have lost their minds in the creek!!!=) Maybe next time. Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home!!!
