In the loft you can gather at the freestanding bar, play poker or games/puzzles on the game table, watch a 36” LCD or lounge on the sofa while surfing the wireless internet.

In the game room you can enjoy a game of pool on a 9 ft slate table with leather pockets, entertain at the freestanding bar or relax in front of the 60” wide screen. The game room is also a GREAT place for the kids to hook up their game consoles and get their game on!

In the family room you can enjoy a wood burning fire and catch Direct TV on the 42” LCD. The family room is located just off of the dining area/kitchen and includes one of the sleeper sofas for extra guests. Watch the big game with some co-workers or watch old family videos at your next family reunion on the DVD player!

Throughout you will find wood floors, granite countertops, tongue and groove pine ceilings and walls complete with a full kitchen. Modern kitchen features stainless steel appliances, fully stocked cookware, plenty of cabinet space, small appliances, and beautiful dining table with seating between 10-12. PLUS a Washer/Dryer!

The outdoor area is breathtaking with scenic viewing deck, 6 person spa, slate and pebble covered patio with an outdoor 4 ft fire pit for smores and more! Take a walk down to the creek and spend some time with Mother Nature. Creek is shallow enough to safely allow kids to roam and wade while the adults enjoy each others company on the balcony!

Cabin amenities include an endless supply of firewood along with stocked bathrooms and kitchen to get you started with necessities at the beginning of your stay.

So don't delay and book your reservation today. The calendar is up to date but feel free to call with any additional questions. Also, major holiday bookings are most sucessful at least 6 months out. Hope to see you soon!

About Marla Adams

We purchased this property in 2009 to have a 'family' place for many years to come to celebrate together, relax and make wonderful memories. We bought 2 lots together to ensure privacy and embrace as much of mother nature in our own backyard. The creek along the whole back of the property was what sealed the deal! It is our hope that other people also get to enjoy the cabin and treat it like their own home while they make wonderful memories of their own!

Why Marla Adams chose Ellijay

We are a family of 5 with 2 dogs! When we come to the cabin the dogs are in heaven trapsing through the woods and the kids can be found down by the creek most of the day. Of course they ALL come back wet and muddy! The cabin is 3 floors so not matter whether you are here a few days or a few weeks there is enough 'space' to have your own 'space'. Also, you are so close to what all Ellijay, Blue Ridge, Atlanta and TN have to offer that you can plan something each day or just relax at the cabin.

The house was a perfect fit for our mixed group of 18. Plenty of space to sleep.

  • 5 of 5

The huge common area in living room/kitchen made it easy for a large group to spend time together. The house is about 50 yards from a creek. It made it easy to go exploring. The owner is very responsive and is there to help whenever you have any questions. Definitely recommend to other large groups.

Beautiful cabin, great for entertaining, nice views and well equipped kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

We took a group of 17 ladies from the church for the weekend. We had a lovely time relaxing by the fire and soaking in the hot tub. The view from the back deck was beautiful and listening to the creek was very peaceful. The kitchen was very well equipped for a large group. The room arrangements were nice. However, the quality of mattresses in the bunk room, living room queen sleeper and the loft futon was less than comfortable. They may have been fine for small children but I wouldn't recommend them for adults. The owner was very pleasant and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that came up. I definitely will consider booking again with my family or a slight smaller group.

Wonderful Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful fall weekend. The layout for our group was great. Very well equipped. It was great that the firewood was provided for the fire pit . Beds were comfortable. Loved the separate living areas to enable small ones a place to play and watch TV. Well located. Enjoyed walks in neighborhood and surrounding woods. I would recommend this cabin to anyone and is on my list if we ever stay in this area again with a group. The owner was very nice in our correspondence.

My weekend with my family was absolutely amazing!!! I celebrated my 50th birthday & couldn't have found a better cabin to celebrate but this Turtle Creek Cabin. It was everything I imagined it would be. Absolutely superb!!! Very spacious size for my large gathering of 16, extremely clean inside , great amenities, beautiful warm Jacuzzi that was already prepared for guest, huge kitchen space, washer & dryer connection, plenty of linen, awesome pool table area in lower part of cabin. Board games to play. I am also happy it was very secluded in the woods (we were pretty loud) & the creek was indeed a plus. My family & I took lots of pics at the creek & also on the long stairwell inside the cabin. It was beautiful!!!!! EVERYTHING that this cabin describes in its description is indeed true. Now for the owner, Marla Adams, she was a JEWEL!!! I was not familiar with how to access the gate & exactly where I could find the key to enter the cabin, although she had sent me all information needed before arrival. (my apologies) I must have called her at least 4x's , however, she was very patient, friendly & was willing to help assist me & my family in any way she could to access the gate & enter the cabin. My family & I are still talking about it. Definitely an EPIC weekend to remember!!!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!!!! ------------ K. Sims
