About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

We are proudly a true VRBO'er, the most important part being By Owner. We offer the attention to detail, cleanliness, and amenities that you would expect from owners who are intimately and directly involved with the care and management of their cabin. We are giving you our best, and we expect your best in return.

The most consistent reaction we have from guests, family and friends is that Wagon Wheel Ridge is far more beautiful than they expected. Pictures don’t do it justice. Beautiful, private setting. Beautifully landscaped and decorated. There is something for both him and her. She will appreciate the tasteful and well-appointed rooms. He will appreciate the hint of cowboy and farm (We “just said no” to the moose & bear motif.) Both will appreciate the private, cozy, quiet, natural setting. You will simply enjoy! WWR is fun, relaxing, beautiful, serene, exciting, peaceful, private. It is close to nature, quaint, cozy, comforting. There is a warmth that is hard to put into words, that you cant see in pictures.

We are true VRBO'ers, and provide the personal touches and attention to detail you would expect. You cannot say that for a lot of other cabin rentals. We hope you can tell the difference and treat us accordingly. We do not care to be treated like the Economy Inn, and we are not your best option for bargain hunters. We proudly provide one of the best values available for quality of your mountain vacation experience.

Wagon Wheel Ridge is a little bit country, a little bit western. Its got a touch of cowboy and a hint of the farm. It has the feel of an elegant ranch line cabin tucked away in the hills. If you are looking for an extraordinary, peaceful, private and relaxing getaway, We'd love to have ya' drop by!

On vacation in the mountains…Its All About The HOT TUB and The View…and we’ve got more than just a hot tub. We have a Hot Tub Pavilion with its own relaxing, laid-back seating area perfect for gathering under the ceiling fan and chatting with your friends in the tub. The tub itself is a 6 seat Gulf Coast Spa LX5000 with lights, waterfall, and aromatherapy. And...drum roll please...we positioned the hot tub and raised it off the ground so you can enjoy the mountain view from the can truly soak it all in.

Do you want a getaway that sticks with you for weeks. A vacation experience you cant help but tell your family and friends about? This is the place. Right here. Enjoy a week or a weekend - grillin', chillin', hiking, biking, kayaking. Or just snuggle in watching your favorites - sports, movies, classic TV - or maybe some quiet time, catching up on some reading.

Downstairs we have a comfy-cozy Living Room, Media Room, and Dining Room area defined by custom-made, absolutely one-of-a-kind door and window trim. Look closely at the pictures from those rooms! The warm ambiance it creates is almost indescribable. If you like beautiful handmade alone is worth coming to see. Also you will find hand-scraped solid oak floors throughout this area.

The Living Room has a large mountain-view picture window, wood-burning fireplace and loads of cowboy cool, which continues right on into the Media Room. There you can enjoy the game in sheer audio and visual pleasure on the Sony 40' HD LCD TV and 5.1 Sony Home Theatre System with Boston Acoustic speakers & subwoofer.

We provide Dish Network Satellite TV reception in the Media Room, both downstairs bedrooms and the Teen Loft. The Media Room and the Master Bedroom both have a HD TV, and all four TVs have recording capability to record your shows while you are out.

The kitchen has an enormous cast iron farm sink, beautiful custom made French country distressed finish cabinets with tear drop glass doors. Frigidaire electric range and ceramic stovetop, microwave, and dishwasher, a side-by-side Bosch refrigerator, and various small appliances for your convenience.

We have two beautifully decorated bedrooms and two cute-as-can-be bathrooms downstairs; then we have a darn nice teen loft with half-bath and one queen and one twin bed. Plus the loft has three built-in cushioned benches for lounging, though they are not setup for sleeping.

From the front porch you can see for miles. The view is sweetly framed by the split-rail cedar fence and the close-by trees, creating an effect that is hard to duplicate. Off one end of the front porch are stairs and a walkway that lead you to the Hot Tub Pavilion. At the other end of the front porch is the deck. The deck has a stainless steel propane gas grill for quick and easy grillin', plus a large square dining table (square makes it easy to talk & pass the groceries) and cushioned seating for eight. And that's not all ...another drum roll can soak up a little mountain sun, touch up your tan, and get your Vitamin D!!! We've got two fully cushioned chaise lounges that face in just the right direction.

Outside, we have beautiful natural landscaping and a paved basketball court for the kids and/or adventuresome adults. We also have an outdoor fire-pit. We supply the wood - you supply the common sense and don't set the woods on fire.

Details matter, and we have put extra attention in appointments and furnishings, from the linens to the wall decor. For all beds we use Jamison Resort Foam 5-Star Mattresses and high thread count sheets. In both downstairs bedrooms we use extra plush 80 ounce luxury carpet and heavy padding. We even use Italian decorative iron with an embossed vineyard grain for the porch & deck pickets.

Wagon Wheel Ridge is only about 12 miles from Ellijay in Gilmer County, Georgia, the Apple Capital of Georgia. Ellijay is home to the Apple Festival held two weekends in October. There are Apple Houses along the highways with fresh and canned produce, gifts, baked goods, and other treats. Ellijay has numerous antique shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Wagon Wheel ridge is also convenient to Amicalola Falls, Dawsonville, Dahlonega, and Blue Ridge, each with their own attractions. Go antiquing to your heart's content or ride the scenic railway in Blue Ridge. Visit the North Georgia Premium Outlet stores & the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame in Dawsonville. Pan for gold & shop antiques in Dahlonega. Yee Haw!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

This was even nicer than we expected and a perfect spot for a young family. It was immaculate, beautifully appointed, and comfortable inside and the views were breath-taking. Our kids enjoyed the teen loft and games upstairs, the basketball court, the large hot-tub with views of the mountain, and the fire pit outside. (They really loved the friendly neighborhood dogs that visited too!) The road up to the property is a bit rough, but worth the climb for the views. It was convenient to the Kanagaroo Conservation Center, Amicalola Falls and Springer Mountain, but we really felt like we were away from it all once we got back. The owner was very responsive and helpful. It was great visit and we highly recommend it!

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a weekend getaway. This place exceeded our expectations for the price! Great views, awesome hot tub (with a view of sunrise) and very clean and well maintained structure. They also have a gas grill, outdoor seating and rockers on the front porch which looks out over the mountains. Nice place for couples or families... they even have a teen loft that sleeps at least 6 teens/ kids. My 2WD Jeep Liberty made it up and down the gravel road to the cabin just fine fully loaded. We will definitely keep this place on our list and hope to return again soon!

Great mountain retreat. The owner has paid attention to every detail. The view, fireplace and hot tub were all terrific. Great furnishings, kitchen is nice, and everything is spotless. We had a great time and will be back in the future.

A peaceful, beautiful sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

It is always great to stay at a place that is tastefully decorated, fully loaded with everything you need for stress-free stay, and in a beautiful location. Wagon Wheel Ridge has all that and more. Beds are comfortable, floor plan is great and the view from the cabin is amazing. The communication process is top notch -- plenty of detailed instructions and directions. Hope to visit this fabulous place again.

My wife and I chose wagon wheel for our 1yr anniversary weekend getaway. Impeccable setting, beautiful views, immaculately clean home with charming attention to detail. Perfect jacuzzi tub which overlooked the mountainous views. Clear cut directions and indications of usage the home and its amenities. Fully stocked with all your needs. Will definetly be booking another stay in the future. Highly recommended.

Rates & Availability

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $95 + Tax
Refundable damage deposit $250
Tax Rate 12.0%

We are a TRUE Vacation Rental By Owner. We do this at our leisure and pleasure, we like making folks happy and we like to stay happy ourselves. We do not like to be treated like the Holiday Hotel. Dont let V.R.B.O's new online quoting and online booking give you the wrong impression.

We usually discount a bit from the online quote system here, based on length of stay. In a couple of situations, the online quote is too low.

Special rates/minimums apply for Holidays. Pet deposit - $100 per dog, 2 dogs maximum, no other pets allowed.

We love-love-love dogs, and many have stayed with us. But what is appropriate in a vacation rental is not the same as for your own home. You do get this, right?

Folks love our place because we keep it in like new condition. We welcome only house-broken, well behaved, recently groomed, clipped & flea-treated, non-aggressive dogs in good health with no chewing, scratching, odor, digging, or potty issues, etc. Puppies, and older or infirm dogs that cannot control their bodily functions are not welcome.

We do NOT allow pets on the beds or furniture. Cleaning dog hair, etc off our many cushions, throws, and comforters is a nightmare! Its best to bring their own bed, and its wonderful if they are crate-trained.

We do NOT believe the occasional potty "accident" is acceptable at all. Dogs should be perfectly house-broken, otherwise they are not welcome.

We have a very expensive wooden front door that absolutely helps "make" the place, and naturally we don't want it scratched - soooo (look at your own doors and) if your dog is a door scratcher...not a good idea to bring him/her.

We love dogs enough that we dont charge a pet fee, pet-cleaning fee...EXCEPT if necessary. Soooo...if we do have to make an extra effort you will be charged accordingly.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
