Memorable Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying at the lodge. It was perfect and exactly what we needed. Spacious, clean, and well stocked. After spending a week there, we really didn't want to go home :-) lol.

Wonderful location and home for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for a relaxing getaway with a larger group. It was a well stocked home from paper products to kitchen needs (only thing it could use is a new large frying pan as the one there was peeling its teflon coating). Kirk was great to work with and this has been our second time here as its such a great place! We stocked up at the Walmart just 10-15min. away on the way in and loved not having to leave the property all weekend! Would stay again its such a great place.

Beautiful private cabin for large groups

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and clean. It has so many separate sleeping areas for several families or large groups. Kitchen is well stocked but not enough coffee mugs for large groups so bring your own. The outside covered porch is wonderful. Lots of seating by the outdoor fireplace. You can enjoy the views and fireplace even if the weather is bad. Kirk was so helpful and easy to work with. Our weekend was wonderful!

Fantastic Spot for Groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our musical theatre troupe has hosted our annual retreat at this cabin for several years now. It's just a fantastic space for groups, with lots of spaces that are separated for privacy. The outdoor area is lovely with rocking chairs on the front porch, multiple cozy spots on the rear porch, and a hot tub. The property is also spacious and allows the group to explore, the creek a particular favorite. The owner, Kirk, is very friendly and helpful as needed. We can't wait to return next year!

This lodge is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at this beautiful lodge with our four children (from four different states) and their families. There was room for all of us after adding a couple of air mattresses for children. The lodge is beautifully decorated and is in a lovely North Georgia setting. It was clean and well maintained. There is plenty of deck space to eat outside or to just sit and enjoy nature. It's approximately 8 miles from Amicalola Falls State Park, one of Georgia's prettiest. Ellijay isn't too far away if you need to make a trip to a grocery store or a restaurant. Kirk, the owner, was very helpful in answering questions and returned calls and emails in a timely manner. Thank you, Kirk. Our family had a wonderful stay at your lodge. We highly recommend this lodge. Jane and Dillard Wilbanks
