"I am a young entrepreneur and I needed some time away. Chattanooga is my favorite city so this seemed like a great option. My mom, boyfriend, myself, and three dogs stayed here and LOVED it! There's hang gliding if you need adventure, hiking for sightseeing, shopping in Chattanooga, and much more. The owner is so nice and accommodating. The house has everything you will need and it is so cozy! I was unsure about the hanging bed but it is SO COMFORTABLE! I'll be returning for my birthday next year! If you stay here, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!"

"We decided to take a last minute weekend getaway with our 2 young girls and booked this home. So glad we did!! First off, Ron was amazing to work with!! He was more than accommodating and his response time was extremely quick...he even called us while he was on vacation to answer a question! The home is wonderful and is very roomy. We enjoyed eating out on the deck in the trees. The location is great as well...very close to the amenities, etc. Our girls loved the house and the decor as well...they actually asked if we could move in! Our only complaint is that it was too short!! We will definitely come back here for a longer stay next time! Thanks Ron!!"

Perfect "home" for a perfectly beautiful "backyard wedding".
"My daughter's vision came true when she chose Laughing Bear for her wedding. Because it was a relatively small guest list, we were able to sleep family from out of town, the bridal party, and a few of the guests. Although a large house, the owners have gone out of their way to ensure that the lodge is a cozy and comfortable home-away-from-home. They have paid attention to every detail.
For the wedding, we set up an arbor/altar at the edge of the creek and witnessed the marriage of two wonderful young people. We enjoyed dinner on the grounds followed by dancing under the stars (and fireflies - stunning)! I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Laughing Bear Lodge. Fond memories were made for a lifetime!"

"My family just got back from a weekend at the Ittabena Lodge, and we are already planning our next trip. We have stayed in a lot of cabins in the Ellijay area, but this one stands out. This cabin is well maintained, clean, and has all the amenities to make it a luxury cabin. The difference is the location. The cabin feels really remote, but it is still only 10 minutes from town. It is situated on a beautiful mountain creek and the views are tremendous. The owners were very easy to deal with, and made our experience exceptional. We can't wait to get back."
