About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) DISCOUNT FOR 2 GUESTS

Shady Creek Lodge is a beautiful cabin located in the mountains of Blairsville. It sits on nearly an acre of property with large shade trees and a babbling creek at the edge of the property. The covered lower deck or the main level deck with BBQ grill are great places to sit and enjoy the peacefulness of being in the mountains. You may even see the deer that frequently roam through the property along with the other abundant wildlife. Sorry, NO space for trailers at this property.

COMING SOON- Shady Acre Retreat, 1008 sf, 1.3 acres, 2 bdrm, 1.5 bath, fire pit, easy access, listing will be on vrbo after May 1st.

When darkness falls and you are finally forced to come inside, you have 2 stone fireplaces, Wi-Fi, a computer desk, 2 TVs, 2 DVD players, a stereo, VCR, playing cards and board games. There is plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy. Bedtime gives you a QUEEN temperpedic bed on the main level, large KING suite on lower level and antique FULL bed on lower level.

Every effort has been made to make guests feel at home. Shady Creek Lodge is decorated with treasures collected in the mountains over the years and a few animal 'friends' hanging on the walls. This is not your typical rental, it is a 'home away from home'. Quality bed linens and towels, no cheap rental hand me downs. Read our reviews, they say it all.

About Ty Cobb

After spending our summer vacations with our kids in the mountains for over 20 years, we finally realized our dream of having our own place. One of us likes to shop and the other loves the outdoors. Thankfully, both of those hobbies can be done in and around Blairsville. Ty and Angie Cobb, Port Orange, Florida

Ty Cobb purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Ty Cobb chose Blairsville

After 20-or so years of vacationing in different areas of the mountains, we fell in love with Blairsville after taking a fall trip to the area. There are so many places you can go in a short distance with so much to do without having the 'tacky tourist' feel to them. They are warm, cozy, friendly towns that have captured our hearts. The scenery is breathtaking!

Second property coming May 1st-ck back for Shady Acre Retreat listing

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet, peaceful morning coffee on the deck watching the animals. Strolling down to the creek with a good book. Hiking at Vogel State Park or the other nearby parks. Boating and fishing at any one of the numerous lakes in the area. Antique shopping and winery tours in Blairsville & nearby towns, or motorcycle rides on some of the best roads anywhere. Back to the deck in the evening for more 'critter' watching and dinner cooked on the BBQ grill. It doesn't get much better than this!

Very nice super clean cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Me and a couple friends stayed here for a disc golf tournament over the weekend. We were able to book this cabin 2 days before the tournament. The owner was very fast to respond and very helpful. Plenty of room for everyone. We brought food to grill and had everything there we needed which was great! I plan on staying here next year for the same tournament and would recommend it to anyone. The cabin is also only 3 miles from town which is a great bonus so you do not have to driver very far if you need anything.

Everything was as stated in the advertisement!

Everything was as stated in the advertisement! Many times, it is not and it is always refreshing when it is! Thanks!

Located in a nice area, with many options for things to do! The weather was a bit chilly while we were there, but this is not reflection on the owner! We still did plenty of hiking and sight seeing! Peaceful down by the creek bank!

Great Time in the Georgia mountains!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at his cabin and are so glad we picked this one. I enjoyed getting the fireplace going on the cool mornings, and the weather was perfect the whole time. All appliances worked fine during our Thanksgiving stay and the hot tub was a treat at night. If I would ever go back to the north Georgia mountains again, I would definitely consider renting this cabin.
