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.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the cabin was nice and clean. We appreciated the space, large kitchen with seating for 14, abundance of pots and pans, and kitchen necessities (e.g. trash bags, paper towels, kitchen towels, plenty of cookware utensils, etc.). The cabin was filled to suit the needs of each person with games, ping pong table, pool table, hot tub, fire pit, numerous TVs, and a quick walk to the creek.

Definitely will consider booking another stay. However, there are a few things that would have been better. I remember reading someone’s review on the sofa beds and thought they were updated. From our experience, that was not the case. Unfortunately, the sofa bed mattresses were terribly uncomfortable, as was the futon. The bunk beds didn’t feel very secure, as they didn’t seem very sturdy. Also, the plastic mattress pads were awfully hot to sleep on.

Even with the few things we didn’t like, I would recommend this cabin to others, but would not recommend counting on the sofa beds or futon as options for people to sleep on.

As for customer service, Marla (the cabin owner) was very responsive, helpful, and great to work with. Great customer service!

Family Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Creek was perfect for our large family-kids and grandkids. The creek was great and the hot tub even better. Lots of games for children and adults. Good space with lots of bedrooms and baths. We wanted to use the fire pit, but it was rainy each night. S'mores would have been fun. Having a pack and play for the baby was a big help. I personally loved sitting out on the back deck to read while the children napped. It was very peaceful and serene. Adults all went tubing and had a blast. The Ark Rescue would have been great for the children, but it was closed while we were there. The house was very private and we had a wonderful time!
