Overview

About the property

Beautiful Log Cabin - Pet Friendly, too!

Just Breathe.... Our privately owned and managed smoke free pine planked log cabin, Listen to the Creek, is located in the Trout Capital of GA just 90 minutes north of Atlanta, 90 minutes southeast of Chattanooga, and 30 minutes from Murphy, NC. and 35 minutes from HARRAH's CASINO! Tucked in McCaysville, GA and nestled quietly in the woods on one acre surrounded by ferns and seasonal views of one of the best GA trout fishing streams (some say it is as big as a river), Fightingtown Creek. The creek is not directly on our property....Walk 350 feet down drive and private road to the 8 x 10 ft dock shaded by trees and where the huge trout wait for your hook! Start your morning with coffee and a cool mountain breeze in a rocking chair on the screened porch or wrap around porch. Sit at the table at lunch and watch deer wonder by the window. At dusk, watch the sun set over the tree tops from the swing and rocking chairs on the porch or count the stars while roasting s’mores around the fire pit.

Relax in the 6 person Hot Tub while listening to the creek!

True to its name “Listen to the Creek” is a great relaxing retreat in the mountains with all the comforts of home. Entering on the open main level, you find a cozy living room with a wood burning fireplace (great for a romantic evening), a dining area, and fully equipped kitchen with granite and with place settings for more than 8. Open floor plan makes viewing the 32' flatscreen TV equipped with Direct TV- enjoyable for everyone in the kitchen and family room. Cabin has 2 bedrooms and a loft closet area kids love to make forts in, plus two bathrooms with granite and beautiful flagstone floors. One bedroom with a queen is on the main level with 32" flat screen and stairs lead to the second floor room with a full bed, private screened porch with sunrise views and full bath. Fully equipped washer and dryer closet is also available for your convenience.

“Listen to the Creek” is close to historic downtown Blue Ridge, Lake Blue Ridge and the Toccoa/Ocoee Rivers - Only 11 miles from the Olympic Whitewater site! You can go kayaking, rafting, or canoeing on the river; ski and fish in the lake; ride the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad, go horseback riding, Zip-line at Zip Line Canopy Tours, visit Bert’s Pumpkin Farm, Merciers Apple Orchard, or the Swan Drive in Movie Theatre - plays first run movies and usually a double feature. There are also local golf courses in the area for your enjoyment

The cabin is well equipped not only for essential living but for fun too! Life jackets for the creek and river are also provided for use at your risk. No need to bring movies or a book. There is a small library of books, movies and games to enjoy too!

Whether you want a romantic weekend getaway, a family vacation, or a long weekend with friends, “Listen to the Creek” will provide memories of great secluded mountain getaway for years to come.

About Terri Teems

My husband and I bought this beautiful cabin in 2007. We absolutely love it but find we can't go up as often as we like. So after much nudging from our friends that vacation there regularly we were convinced to share our little piece of serenity with the world!

Terri Teems purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Terri Teems chose Northwest High Country

This log cabin is tucked in the woods. You'll feel like you are deep in the wilderness but yet you are only 3 miles from a cute mountain town with restaurants, shopping, and a grocery!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Terri,



I wanted to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the cabin! I met up with my cousin and a friend of ours for a much needed girls weekend. Exploring all the small towns, shopping and eating, and then coming back to relax at the cabin is just what we needed to recharge. It was so clean and had everything we could need and more. Thank you for providing such a wonderful spot to get away!

SWEET RUSTIC CABIN!!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was lovely! It had everything we needed and was such a peaceful setting. We tubed down the Tacoa River and walked around through the local shops. We hope to go back soon!

Beautiful cabin- Rough roads

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but nice things to say about our stay. Cabin was clean and just like the pictures. Kitchen was nicely equipped even with a Keurig! I walked around barefoot if that gives you an idea of how comfortable the cabin was. Plenty of board games and family bonding options. No Wifi but we didn't mind at all! Hot tub worked great and loved the fire pit. Charcoal grill was nice also. I have AT&T and didn't have any problem with cell phone service.

So the scary part- the drive to the cabin was difficult. We drove a Ford Explorer and had a very difficult time. We would spin out and start to slide back down the narrow gravel road. I highly recommend a vehicle with 4 wheel drive. Low sitting cars I wouldn't even attempt- I'm not sure if a normal car would even make it- plenty of ruts in the road from other vehicles also having a hard time getting up the hill, you might bottom out and hurt something in your undercarriage.

Highly recommend Rafting down the Ocoee if your adventurous. We use Carolina Rafting Company and they were also nice. The waterfall hike the owners suggested in the guest book was also great! Grocery store is small but has all your basics. Shops have weird hours but everyone was very pleasant and welcoming. Good Mexican food and a few bars with unique local beers.

Secluded Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and cozy. It was convenient for us while visiting family in Copperhill, TN. It is located in the mountains, so an SUV or higher sitting vehicle is easier to navigate the winding gravel roads to the property. We recently purchased a 4-Runner, so it was fun getting to use all the gears including the four wheel drive, but not necessarily required in good weather conditions. The driveway and walk to the dock is rather steep, but this was described adequately by other reviews, so it was not unexpected. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again!

Our cabin is located in the quaint town of McCaysville where the Blue Ridge train visits most days. Fish off the private dock on one of the best trout streams in GA, Fightingtown Creek, or simply launch a tube off of the dock for a 2 1/2 hour leisurely ride down the creek.

Relax on one of the 3 Decks or soak in the Hot Tub while listening to the creek and watching for wildlife in the woods.
