Perfect Mountain Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful slice of nature to change up your routine and spend some time with friends and/or family, look NO further. From the oversized gameroom to the spacious (and numerous) decks, you'll have ALL the space you need to gather together or find a corner to retreat to. The rushing sounds of Mountaintown Creek were the perfect background to all our outdoor activities on the property...especially the nights by the bonfire on its banks. The wood burning and gas fireplaces inside were put to good use as well...if we were in the house, there was a fire going - and NO fears of running out of firewood inside or out.

We did a LOT of cooking and found the kitchen, gas grill and HUGE outdoor dining table more than exceeded our expectations - EVERYTHING we needed was there! We were able to purchase all of our groceries from the nearby Ingles, which was only a 25 minute drive. We visited all the antique malls in Ellijay, the olive oil store and purchased some tasty locally-made wine too! OH...and we can NOT forget the thoughtful stack of seat cushions!! They traveled with us all over the house and Big kudos to whoever had that idea!! For the location, price, and amenities, you will have a HARD time beating IttaBena Lodge! We'll be back.

WOW!! I spent the weekend at this cabin for a girls weekend, and it was absolutely amazing!! The cabin was so warm and cozy and was absolutely beautiful inside and out! The view outside on the many porches were so wonderful and peaceful. We enjoyed hanging out around the cabin and even a fire next to the river right outside. I cannot wait to go back with my friends or family!!! I see many trips in the future!

One word: outstanding! The cabin couldn't be nicer and has all the perks and then some. The kitchen/den, the porches and bedrooms, the gameroom, the large level lot in the back, and the creek - all A+. Great location with easy drives to Ellijay, Blue Ridge, and Ft. Mountain. (For the cyclists out there, the road cycling and mtn biking in the area are epic, and the cabin is conveniently located to lots of it.) We'll be back soon.

We spend one amazing week at the ittabeno lodge cabin, with our friends. Planty of room for 4 adults, 3 kids, 8y, 9y, 16y and 2 doogs. Our kids enjoyed running around, and played in the game room downstairs. We made so many memories there, we played cards on the porch every night, relaxed in the hot tub, fished, tube, and spend many nights by fire listing to the rushing water. There is so much to do around the cabin, we hiked, horseback riding, wine tasting, also zip line was fun too. Owners very very helpful, they recommended where to eat what to see. We are really happy with everything, looking forward another vacation at ittabeno lodge.

Amazing, Relaxing, BEAUTIFUL, LOVE

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful house we have ever stayed at. There are special touches in each room and is far from the average rental property. My family had a BLAST building a campfire, listening to the creek, and sitting on ALL the porches. It was just perfect in every way. Plenty of space, yet a cozy family feel.


Thank you!

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.
