  • Perfect Mountain Escape


    We had such a great stay while here. The house is amazing: from the views, to the amenities, to the wildlife, to the many adventures that await in the surrounding areas. Christa was an excellent host, letting us know everything that was going on in the “resort.” I use the word resort lightly (in a great way). I was worried that it was going to be too commercial-like, trying to get you to spend money everywhere you went. Not the case. It gives you great options to hang close to the house on a rainy day, or if you don’t feel like driving off the property to explore. Only $10 a day for 4 people to use the pools, arcade, tennis courts, basketball courts, mini golf, etc. can’t beat that. It is a resort in the fact that you can stay in the large community the whole time and still enjoy the mountains, the river and animal watching. We try not to stay at the same place twice for vacation, but I am pretty sure we are going to have to make an exception here. So much more to explore in the area! Oh, I almost forgot to mention the beautiful view of the sunrise in the morning was amazing!

  • Clean. Quiet. Spacious.


    I really can't say enough positive things about Big Sky Cabin! You would never know that dogs are allowed here, as there is no pet odor whatsoever, and the entire place was super clean. It was great being able to bring my little terrier, for a very reasonable fee; she loved the place, too! The rental sets on a large lot, which backs up to an extensive wooded area; we saw lots of deer, rabbits, and even a box turtle:) out on the lawn. The location is very quiet, and feels very private, despite the neighbors just across the street; beautiful mountain views out the front door. I appreciated that despite the feeling of being secluded, the place is just 15-20 minutes from any store you would need (Super Walmart, Ingle's grocery, Abby's Ice Cream, Dollar General, multiple restaurants, pharmacy, etc.) I loved that there was plenty of space for our group of 5, to spread out, inside and outside. There is a large front porch with seating, and a giant back deck, with lots of seating, and a hot tub. Just down the stairs, is a small Weber grill, in perfect working order and clean. It was easy to take the trash out, as the covered trash bins, were also just down the stairs, as well. Although we didn't have time to use the outdoor fire pit, it looked cozy, with seating and firewood provided! How convenient! Inside, I loved that the kitchen was well-furnished and large, since we ate all of our evening meals in. the beds were nicely firm and comfortable, and my four teens thought the living room couches were very comfy; the leather swivel recliner was also comfortable enough to sleep in:). The bonus of having a washer & dryer to use, (including the detergent,) was wonderful; made for much less work, when we returned to Indiana. The owners were extremely responsive by phone and text; had a chance to meet Mr. Callen when we left, and he was cordial and kind. Would recommend going river tubing, Bigun's BBQ, visiting Amicalola Falls State Park, and the train ride & shopping in Blue many fun things to do!! Would love to return in the fall, which I'm sure is lovely here, visiting the apple orchards, vineyards, etc..

  • Great Location, Very Clean, Attentive Owners!


    We were very happy with our stay in the resort in Ellijay. In my opinion, this is one of the best locations in the resort on a beautiful property. You are a short walk to the community center and indoor pool, and you have beautiful views on a large lot with plenty of flat area for kids or pets to play or run. The home is very well kept, clean, and has everything you need for your stay. The owners are very accommodating and helpful with questions and information about the area. The porches are so nice to relax on, and there is a nice fire pit and hot tub. There are even two kayaks to use if that is something you enjoy. Also, plenty of board games, lawn games, and Netflix available. The community has lots of amenities, and there is a Walmart, shopping, nice restaurants/wineries, and a cinema close by! We are glad we chose this property as many are on the side of a cliff, and here you are right on top of the mountain!

  • Peaceful getaway


    The property was next to the Rec center. We enjoyed the pool there. The cabin's deck was large and we watched deer walk through grazing. The hot tub was perfect. We roasted marshmallows and reconnected with our teenagers! Close enough to town to be convenient. The host was amazing. Perfect family spring break.❤️
