Overview

About the property

Quiet, comfortable country cabin waits for you to get away from it all!

Get away from what ails you in our Secluded Lakeside Pine Cabin with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms on 12 acres on gated private road near the Cohutta Wilderness. Set a line in our private fishing pond or muddy your fat tires, hikin’ boots or huntin’ coveralls on some of Georgia’s most beautiful mountain land, nearly at our doorstep.

Cabin is situated on big, grassy yard beside stocked pond 10 miles from charming downtown Ellijay. Rent our rustic jon boat for a paddle cruise or fishing tour around the pond. Wind up your pitching arm for a game of corn hole...corn bags and boards provided. Watch the deer graze and turkeys peck from the wrap-around porch. Relax by the campfire while your buddies catch a few fish; clean ‘em on our outdoor table, eat ‘em in our spacious country kitchen. Bring your football, soccer ball or croquet set (?) for a game on the grass; come on back in the house to recover in comfort. Listen to the bullfrogs croon on the pond in the evening.

Home has all wood floors, master and full bathroom on main, two bedrooms and bath upstairs in the loft. Rock fireplace with gas logs in living room invites warm conversation or quality TV time. Yes, we have Satellite TVs in living room and upstairs parlor with lots of channels. And, although we’re in the backwoods, we have wireless Internet, too!

All linens provided. Full size washer & dryer. Sleeps 6.

Area amenities: Numerous hiking trails in the Cohutta Mountains and wilderness area lead you to the Conasauga River and Lake Conasauga, waterfalls, and massive “Big Poplar,” the second largest tree in North Georgia. Mountain bike on Forest Service roads or contact a nearby outfitter about gearing you up and getting you out. Take a short drive up to Fort Mountain State Park for gorgeous views of the Georgia mountains from the car or trail and marvel at mysterious rock ruins from another age. Drive into Ellijay to get a pizza or dine at one of the unique local restaurants. Discover history, get nostalgic at local antique shops. Plan your fall visit around the apple harvest and the Georgia Apple Festival, 2nd and 3rd weekends in October. Hunt for deer, turkey, bear, feral hogs in the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area or three other WMAs within close range. Go 4-wheeling on trails in the Conasauga section of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Saddle up your horses for rides in the National Forest or at Fort Mountain State Park.

Come on up to the Country. Stay a while in our Secluded Lakeside Pine Cabin!

About Jane Harrison

We're an outdoor family whose idea of a fun vacation usually involves activities in or around water, woods, and trails. This place gets us where we can have all that, plus the amenities of a charming small town and the solace of the mountains.

Why Jane Harrison chose Northwest High Country

There's no better place to enjoy the Georgia Mountains than in our country log cabin where you're away from it all, but close to what matters.

What makes this cabin unique

When we're relaxing at the cabin, we like to pick up a summer novel to read on the front porch swing or warm up in winter by the fireplace gas logs. We like to feed the fish, too, and thrill at the huge lunkers who come up with mouths wide open. In the evenings, we relax on the porch rockers while the bulldogs croon on the pond. We enjoy watching wild turkeys peck and deer graze the grassy yard. The field awaits our soccer ball or your football or dinner on the ground! Sometimes we get competitive with a game of corn hole...but try to keep it fun and relaxing!

Most relaxing vacation I've had in many years!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location, convenient to town if you would like to leave the property, but I preferred to stay at the cabin! I did go in for a few supplies for a couple of hours, then back to he peace and quiet. Enjoyed fishing in the pond, seeing the deer, turkeys, squirrels, rabbits, and many songbirds. It rained some each day and was very relaxing on the porch watching the rain and storms roll thru. The only down side of my stay was the steep narrow stairs and I had difficulty getting comfortable in the beds upstairs. Those were a bit rough for senior citizens but the beauty of the place overcomes those things. I would have loved to have seen some information on the cabin history. Overall beautiful and relaxing! Thanks for the wonderful week Jane.

Quiet, Peacful place to relax and enjoy the wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this secluded cabin. It was fully equipped with everything the two of us needed for the week-long stay.

We could sit outside for hours and hear only the sounds of the breeze rustling the leaves and birds singing. We had rabbits, squirrels and birds constantly feeding in the yard and both deer and turkeys would appear occasionally. We could also see fish in the pond and we caught a few small ones, even though the rain had the pond water a little muddy..

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our second anniversary and it was the perfect getaway! We are both used to vacationing at the beach and wanted to try somewhere different - we couldn't have asked for a better trip. He enjoyed fishing while I enjoyed reading in the rocking chairs or swing on the porch. Lots of bream and bass to catch - just have to get them to bite! The cornhole boards and horseshoes were nice to play in the evenings too. We also enjoyed dinner at River Street Tavern and walking around to the several antique shops.

Jane was great and very fast at emailing back before and during our stay. Thank you, Jane!

We have already recommended this cabin to family and friends, and hope to return again ourselves!

Postcard scenery

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. It is as advertised and it does the heart and mind good to get to place where there is no cell service. You are at peace and can get close to God and realize that life is good at a slow pace. We saw deer, turkeys, rabbits......and beavers. Without so much technology you can sit in the rockers and enjoy the animals; try to identify the trees and flowers and talk to each other. A definite destination.

All weathers there is something to do. You can sit around watching all the animals pass, we saw deer, beaver, turkey with her chicks it was amazing. We caught some fish also and watched the storms at night while sitting on the veranda.

Second Stay, Twice As Sweet

  • 5 of 5

This place was so great that we had to return, and it was even better. We enjoyed seeing the turkeys make their rounds, a beaver came to hang out, and the frogs have the best lullaby.
