Ellijay cabin description

Forest Cabins of Ellijay is situated on 6 acres of pristine old growth forest of hardwoods and huge white pines. The acreage is bordered by about 900 feet of Clear Creek. Clear Creek is about 30 feet wide and in winter you have a lovely view of the rushing trout stream. Lie back in your hot tub and listen to the pileated woodpeckers, babbling stream, crickets, frogs and lake loons. Most visitors will spot deer taking advantage of the creek or a blue heron fishing for supper.

Smell the freshly set fire in your fireplace. Cuddle on the 500 count sheets. Gaze at the millions of sparkling stars. Forget your work-a-day world and relax in the comfort of your little piece of heaven nestled in the Appalachian Mountains.

Keywords: Hot tub cabin overlooking designated Ga. trout stream, Wildlife galore,float on our tubes to gentle shoals in refreshing cool river-size stream. 2 night minimum, 3 on holidays.

Both worth the ride! Atlanta is about and hour and a half from us and is a goldmine of culture with museums and statues and much history of our Martin Luther King.

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: We are only 3 miles from Cartecay Vineyards. They offer tables on a patio overlooking the vineyard. There you taste the wines and view the mountains and valley you are nestled within. Nearby you will find the town of Jasper which has the Sharp Mountain Winery with tours and tastings. Blue Ridge is only 20 minutes away with quaint shops and eatteries. There is an antique steam engine train that you can ride to a nearby town and back to Blue Ridge. Carter's Lake and Lake Blue Ridge are nearby and offer boat rentals and jet skis as well as hiking trails. Amacalola Falls State Park is 20 minutes away with the highest falls east of the Mississippi River. You will enjoy hiking its steps you may climb to the top and back down. They have many trails from easy to expert!

              Why the Owner Chose Ellijay:
              We bought and modified an old barnboard cabin here on Clear Creek. We have always enjoyed the mountains and finally moved here from Cartersville only an hour away. We enjoy the colder weather in winter and the cooler summers. We love the anticipation of snow and the views and woods that this area provides. Jim then built the 2 cabins we have here at Forest Cabins all by himself. Come and enjoy the nature, swings, hiking and the babbling streams.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              You are in the woods on a pond and stream but only 10 minutes from Wal Mart. You have 2 wonderful state parks nearby, Amicalola Falls and Fort Mountain. 3 miles away Cartecay Vineyards offers wine tasting and music on a patio built against an old chimney over-looking their vineyards and surrounded by mountains. We are the mountain biking capital of Georgia. Our Apple Festival the last 2 weekends of October draws people from all around. The arts and crafts are always unique and entertaining. You won't walk away empty-handed. Down town Ellijay offers nice antique shops and restaurants in which you may choose to sit outside and view the surrounding town, weather permitting. About 15 miles away is the town of Blue Ridge which has a steam engine train ride that takes you on a ride to Copper Hill TN. You will pass along the river in outdoor traincars or may choose to sit inside. Blue Ridge also has many shops and restaurants for tourists. Nearby Jasper has Sharp Mountain Winery which has wine tastings.
