Ellijay house description

Welcome to Big Buck Retreat!

Summer in The North Georgia Mountains is fun for everyone!

As owners of this peaceful getaway, we believe in making our home an affordable family getaway. Our rate of $120 a night (less if a week or more) plus a $75 makes our home a wise choice for families. NO tax and No booking fee!

We love apple picking (red barn is our fav), going to the pumpkin farm and checking out all the Fall festivals.

Carters Lake is nearby as are many areas for hiking, apple picking, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, gem mining, antiquing and more!

Escape to the gorgeous North Georgia Mountains to a relaxed, very private environment, situated 15-20 minutes from shopping and recreation in the quaint little town of Ellijay, Georgia. Just an hour and a half drive from metro Atlanta, Chattanooga and the Tennessee-North Carolina border is our elegant mountain top retreat, professionally decorated, furnished with top of the line furniture and linens and enhanced with all the amenities of home.

The 180 degree view from the back porch and patio is simply breathtaking. Overlooking the Chattahoochee National Forest and Carters Lake, this tranquil environment is the perfect spot to relax and recharge. Our 3 bedroom home (Master on Main, Queen, 2 Bunk Beds) is up on top of Big Buck mountain with lots of privacy and even a flat backyard for horse shoes and bocce, not to mention evenings spent around the stacked stone firepit. It is a home to relax, unplug and unwind. At the bottom of the mountain there is a stocked fishing pond too. It is a home to make some family memories. Check out our REVIEWS!!

Also, have a condo or house at the beach?? We love to Barter!!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: We are pleased to be able to rent our family getaway to you. My husband and I and our two little girls love this home and we are told you can feel that when you walk in the door. It is a well appointed, stocked and decorated home that we have tried our best to make it a nice place for other families to relax. Lots of games, art supplies and kids videos are also available for your use.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ellijay:
                  'so hows it going?...the answer 9 out of 10 times when someone asks you this question is 'busy'. Yes, life is busy and moves at an ever increasing frenetic pace. Except for life on Big Buck. Turn your inbox off and recharge for a stay at our retreat. The only 'beeps' you will here is the sound of your coffee machine alerting you to grab a cup of coffee and sit on the deck for awhile. We chose this home as it offered us a sense of peacefulness and relaxation that cant be beat. We arrive at the house on top of Big Buck, take a breath in and let the craziness and pace of the world take a back seat for a bit. The views are 180 degrees and endless. The amenities and decor of the home are top notch and we have tried to think of everything that would make your stay a special one.
