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.

Beautiful secluded cabin nestled in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing cabin! Very comfortable, peaceful and quiet. The furniture is super comfortable and it had everything we could need. The land is well kept and so is the house. The roads there are definitely winding and somewhat bumpy, but it is worth the drive.

What outstanding accommodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

What outstanding accommodations!! My husband is a Big Green Egg fan, and was quite impressed with the electric fire starter! My children loved walking through the stream. I was delighted with the cleanliness, decor and considerate preparations provided by the owner. My daughter found a puzzle that she enjoyed working on, and the Monopoly game was a big hit, too. We also have great pics of us roasting marshmallows for our s'mores!!!Thank you, Cathy, for helping to make our first trip to Ellijay absolutely memorable!!!

Wonderful stay in mountain cabin*****

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cabin was just what we expected and then some! It was very neat and clean. We grilled each night and then built a fire in the fire pit. We saw 4 black bears and an otter one afternoon. Visited several small towns around the area and enjoyed their Historic Districts. So much fun!!

Really, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property could not be more beautiful! If you want to 'get away from it all', this is the place!

It was wonderful to crack the window & listen to the creek each night. Although it is a bit of a drive, it was totally worth it. Great horseshoe & fire pits. My daughter & I made the drive into Ellijay for some antique shopping, browsing, & lunch @ the Back Porch Bistro. We traveled into Murphy, NC for the solar eclipse. Totally amazing! On the way home, we stopped in Amicalola State Park for hiking and viewing the incredible Falls, which is only about 45 minutes from the cabin. There was so much more we wanted to see and experience in the area. Great location for enjoying the great outdoors.

Great Cabin in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Lots to do in the area, with several great towns nearby. We looked forward to returning to this cabin each night. It's located in a beautiful rural setting that is very peaceful with all the amenities. Great communication and household information was provided by property owner. We wish we could have stayed longer and look forward to another visit.
