    This is our third visit to this beautiful cabin & we’ll be back again. Clean, well-stocked with many thoughtful extras, comfy beds, beautiful decor…. & a ringside seat to nature… what’s not to love 💕

  • Beautiful property


    Location is really nice, very quiet road. Nice running creek. There is a ton of parking, lots of firewood, and the house itself is very tastefully done. And expensively done... Everything is high quality. Some other VRBO's are cheaply made just to look nice in the picture but that is not the case here. All high quality and luxury materials. Very well appointed with appliances, towels, comfortable bedding, coffee, dog treats, and just about anything else you could think of or need, it's there for you. When I had questions about the fireplace the homeowner answered very quickly, and was patient and kind. I would definitely stay here again if visiting the area.

  • Pure Bliss


    Words cannot describe how much we enjoyed every aspect of our stay at this cottage. First, I was worried the road leading to the cottage would be scary and it wasn’t at all so no fear of you are a Florida flat land driver like me. Every detail was thought of in this cabin and made it feel like home as soon as you walked in. The peace and tranquility of having the creek right outside the window was therapeutic. We couldn’t get enough. It snowed our first morning and we saw deer in the creek at the same time. The place is kept meticulous and has everything you need if you wanted to cook meals each night. We loved the decor, inspirational messages throughout the cottage and fireplace. My dogs also enjoyed walks along the path to and from the cottage as well as the fenced in backyard. Do keep your dogs on a leash as instructed. The neighbors let their dogs off leash and seemed to know their limits but do come on and near the property. It’s only a 10 minute drive to downtown Ellijay. We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay and can’t wait to return.

  • Great creekside cabin in quiet neighborhood


    The cabin appears to have been renovated and an absolutely superb job was done. I'm jealous. Cabin was super clean and the hosts made sure to make visitors comfortable with quality furnishings and linen. Snacks on the kitchen island were a great touch as well. Though I didn't land any trout, the quality and location of the cabin make it worth a repeat visit.

    This place was amazing. We stayed for thanksgiving and it was as beautifully decorated. Everything was well thought out. We didn’t need to leave to go get anything. Absolutely perfect.
