About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to IttaBena Lodge, which means 'a cabin in the woods' where family and friends meet in Choctaw Indian Language. Situated right on the waters of Mountaintown Creek, one of North Georgia's premier trout streams, this cabin is full of rustic charm and character.

This authentic log home is located within a gated 45 acre retreat. It is one of only 7 cabins within the boundaries surrounded by nature. It is fully equipped with everything.

You'll find the environment quite enchanting and it is the perfect get-away for a fly-fishing vacation, romantic weekend, or a gathering place with family and friends. Enjoy a star filled night by the outdoor firepit directly by the river.

For family reunions or corporate retreats, other cabin rentals on the grounds can be arranged.

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.

Another Amazing visit to Ittabena!

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Ittabena...feels like coming to our home away from home. Thank you once again for wonderful memories. Whitewater rafting at Rolling Thunder yet again was awesome, picking apples at Merciers Orchard...a must!

Ittabena is so well stocked it makes traveling a piece of cake! Can't wait to visit again.

Until then...thanks!

Ittabena Lodge - Practically PERFECT in EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5

A group of lifelong girlfriends had the good fortune of spending a few days at Ittabena Lodge during the warm, late summer days of September. It was a beautiful setting for us to rest and catch up on each other's lives. It is a lovely cabin - very comfortable, spacious, clean, attractively decorated, and well-kept. The kitchen was fully equipped and we had everything we needed, the beds were very comfy and the bedrooms were nicely decorated and spacious, then climate control in the cabin worked well (: and we had the best time - everything was beyond our expectations. It was a privilege to stay in such a nice place and I am sure we will return! We had no trouble following the directions the owners provided, the surrounding area is beautiful - there are so many things to do - we didn't get to all of it but we did enjoy browsing around Ellijay (the people are very friendly), we spent our time fishing, floating in the river, hiking, and just hanging out on the porches and in the cabin!
