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, available only through the end of 2018. 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.

Check out SHADY ACRE RETREAT, our sister property #1304012, 1008 sf, 1.3 acres, 2 bdrm, 1.5 bath, fire pit, hot tub, easy paved access only 5 min from downtown. Same quality as Shady Creek Lodge.

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!

Perfect mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how nice this cabin is. It was the perfect blend of fancy and comfortable, form and function, elegant and homey. Check-in was simple. The cabin had everything we needed, and so many unexpected extras. If you are offended by stuffed animals mounted to the walls, this might not be the place for you. I obviously did not have a problem with them. We did not have any interaction with the host after arriving, but that is because everything was perfect. I would encourage future guests to take a few moments to survey all the kitchen cabinets and drawers upon arrival. You will probably discover that it has several things you either forgot to bring or didn't realize you would want or need. The motion-activated lights in the kitchen and on the stairs was a nice touch. And for those of us who can't afford to be totally detached from the rest of the world, the WiFi and cable TV was a blessing. Everything about this place was just so nice. The comfy chairs and rockers on the two back decks (upper and lower) were perfect for enjoying the scenic view. So peaceful. We hope to stay here again...soon!

Beautiful cabin with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Clean, well-maintained and homey

Lovely lodge in the woods. Close enough to town, yet secluded enough for a restful

respite. Neighbors are visible on both sides, but easy enough to ignore as there are trees that partially block them out. Very clean, well-apportioned home that provided everything we needed. Beautiful area of N Georgia. Close enough drives to whitewater rafting, hiking, tubing, and the local Walmart as well. Porches on the top and bottom floor look out on serene wooded area. Only one thing to note: this is a lodge decorated with a variety of animal heads and pelts. This took a bit of getting used to the first day. We would definitely come back to the Shady Creek lodge!

Spending time with grandson, daughter and her grandson.

  • 5 of 5

This mini vacation was a celebration for my grandsons 13th birthday. The cabin was really nice and very clean. It had everything we needed. I enjoyed having coffee on the back porch while I read my quiet and peaceful. The boys really liked the cabin and the creek. I liked the fact it was so close to everything we wanted to do...Blue Ridge train, hiking & waterfalls, Fields of Wood in Murphy, NC and tubing in Helen.
