Overview

About the property

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!

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!

Clean and comfortable, off the beaten path

  • 4 of 5

The property is a little less accessible than I would have preferred, but it is well kept, clean, and comfortable. It's a very steep property which was hard on my wife and child getting to/from the water, but not terribly so. I would stay there again.

Sweet cozy cabin with all the amenities needed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and beagle and I were able to stay at this lovely cabin for a few days. It rained most of the time we were there, but this is the perfect cabin to stay sequestered away in. We relaxed in the hot tub, made some great meals with their amazing kitchen, read some books and watched some movies on the comfy sofas in the living room. We appreciated the owners' flexibility for our schedule, as well as the chance to get away to a nice, clean space. It was an added bonus that they allowed our dog to come with us! We will definitely consider staying here again.

Wonderful & Woodsy, Nice for R&R!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin and it was perfect for our family. A little off the beaten path so perfect for relaxing by the fire or in the hot tub and grilling out. Once you turn off the main road, use the owners directions instead of GPS. Road names are clearly marked. Take your time on the gravel roads. Beautiful setting inside and out!

A Great Get-Away From it all Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I live in the everyday hustle and bustle of the suburbs of Atlanta. We wanted and needed to stay at a location that was not too far away but also off the beaten path. Listen to the Creek fits that description perfectly. We arrived Sunday afternoon to a delightful home away from home. The cabin has plenty of ceiling fans and rustic throws for the mountain air. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed to cook your meals. We left some K-Cups behind along with some charcoal for the Weber Grill. The beds are extremely comfortable with nice bamboo pillows. We walked down and fished off the dock a few times. We also witnessed some big trout that didn't take our bait. Using a lock box to get in and out of the cabin was great. No extra keys to keep up with during our stay. We didn't see any deer on the property but did see several on our treks in and out as we explored the area. We visited a hiking trail in Tennessee that Terri recommended in her notebook. It was a great hike with many beautiful waterfalls. We were a little disappointed in the fact that it wasn't marked at the beginning of the trailhead with a map, but the trees are marked on the paths. We also visited the Rum Lady cake and Cuban sandwich shop on Hwy 5 on the outskirts of McCaysville. GREAT sandwiches. We will try her Rum Cake on our next visit. I would definitely recommend this area to get away for a few days or even a week like we did. We really didn't want to leave.

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 looking into the woods.
