Property description

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. Watch the deer graze and turkeys peck from the wrap-around porch. Relax by the campfire while your buddies catch a mess of 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 TV 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!

Long term rental available. Owner interested in potential sale.

Owner info

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Ellijay, GA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
