Overview

About the property

Awesome Log Cabin: 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath plus loft. 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.

The Perfect Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what we were looking for..Actually...beyond expectations. Privacy, a deck and screened porch overlooking a flowing mountain stream that was music to our ears. Very functional home with split bedroom plan and spacious living areas. Nicely appointed throughout from furnishings to forks and everything in between. So much room to enjoy inside and out with horseshoes, fire pit, dart board, etc.

The owner was very service oriented and responded quickly.

A Dollar General and Gas Station close by. But once you get there you won't want to leave...

The property is up the mountain and worth the scenic drive to achieve the privacy!

Beautiful and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin! It is tucked away perfectly from the road and sits on a great rushing stream!

Kitchen has about everything you could need. Loved having a Green Egg to cook with as well! My 7 year old loved the trails around the property and hunted for "gold" in the creek! We were able to sit back and relax the entire time we were there and never had any issues.

From playing horse shoes, throwing darts or sitting around a campfire, there was plenty to do while here. Definitely plan on coming back for another visit!

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience a small piece of Heaven then this is it. The cabin itself was neat, clean, well furnished and had a cabin feel with out feeling like everyone else log cabins decorated in a bear motif. It felt like a home away from home. The screened porch was delightful and the fire pit was perfect for the marshmallow evenings with the younger ones. We adventured over to Chattanooga which was an easy drive through beautiful scenery. We did Look out Mountain the swinging bridge and enjoyed the Urban Vibe of downtown. Antiquing in Ellijay proved to be a great relaxing experience. While the adults shopped the younger ones made pottery in the pottery shop. We made beautiful memories with our family and we are anxious to return again. We would not even consider staying any where else.
