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!

Long term rental available. Owner interested in potential sale.

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 Ellijay

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!

Great secluded get away

  • 5 of 5

I think this was our 5th year staying here. We enjoy the fishing and hanging out on the porch in the mornings and evenings. The best part is the seclusion (and the A/C works good which is important in August). Close enough to go to Ellijay for dinner if you don’t want to cook, or has everything you need to never leave the property for entire stay.

Best vacation since Glacier National Park

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this wonderful cabin. Peaceful and secluded yet minutes from town. Great little town with lots of antique stores. And a few minutes more takes you to the convenience of Walmart. Cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Jane was great and responded quickly whenever we had a question. Which wasn't often as everything is explained and supplies are right where they should be. We enjoyed the wrap around porch and the view was great. It did rain a couple times but was followed by sunshine and rainbows! We even saw a double rainbow on one occasion. Beautiful!! We saw lots of wild life but no snakes, in case that is a concern for you. :) We paid the extra for the boat and thoroughly enjoyed it. So glad we did. We saw quite a few fish including some very large catfish. We did fish off and on but did not catch any. We did some hiking and really enjoyed being away from it all. Wifi worked perfectly but tried not to use it too much. It was all about the outdoors! We will definitely go back.

Third Stay was as good as the others.

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and peaceful place to stay. We caught and released over 30 bass and about 10 bream. The weather was great except for a couple of evening thunder storms. No problems with the bugs either. The cabin was clean an nice, the grounds were well kept. If you like to fish, we had our best luck close to the bushes, so you might want to rent the canoe to be able to fish that area. I caught several while bank fishing also. Great place to relax.

This property is heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here. We left twice to get firewood. Our dogs thought they were at Disney world. We’ve stayed on a lot of places around Blue Ridge and this is the best we have found.
