Eagle Creek Hideaway is situated in a private valley and sits right on Flat Creek. You can sit on the screened-in porch and listen to the fast flowing creek, or it is an easy walk down to the water where a fire next to the creek can be enjoyed. There are several benches and a swing along the creek where you can just listen and view nature at its best.

Our cabin is a great place to just get away and relax in seclusion. The cabin is decorated with a lot of thought put into the mountain experience. There are hardwood floors throughout. Vaulted wood ceilings with exposed beams and skylights that let in natural light. The master bedroom opens onto the screened in porch, so on cool nights you can open the door and let the sounds of the creek soothe you to sleep. You can kick back with a book, with the only noise you hear is the fast flowing creek and an occasional hawk. Hawks like to catch the updraft from the wind blowing through the valley and over the ridge tops. To stay connected the cabin has complimentary WiFi and Dish network. Of course, staying connected to the outside world is always optional.

Eagle Creek Hideaway is located in Coosawattee River Resort (CRR) in North Georgia near Ellijay. CRR is a gated 6500 acre resort that the Coosawattee River flows through. There are many amenities to be enjoyed in CRR while renting our cabin including 3 swimming pools, (2 outdoor and 1 indoor heated pool), game room, large well equipped gym, 18 hole putt putt, tennis courts, basketball courts, stocked fishing pond(no license req). There are several parks along the Coosawattee River with play grounds and picnic tables. Tubing down the Coosawattee River is available daily during the summer.

Eagle Creek Hideaway is also a great central location if you want adventure, with easy access to the main road (less than 1 mile from gated entrance) where all the mountain adventures await. Our driveway is paved from the road down to the level parking area for easy access. We strive to make our cabin the most enjoyable experience possible. Please take time to read our reviews. Thanks for looking.

About Gina Hancock

We are Gina and Brian and our regular home(when we are not at home at the cabin) is in Fayetteville, Ga. We have a daughter and son in their early 20's.

Gina Hancock purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Gina Hancock chose Ellijay

We bought this cabin in October of 2011. We love the North Georgia area and particularly the Ellijay area due to the beauty and convenience. It is the closest to metro Atlanta as you can get and still be in the mountains, and in a different world.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with our cabin when we first saw it. It is in a private valley with a fast flowing creek directly behind the house. It is in Coosawattee River resort with all the amenities you could ask for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time! This is a very beautiful place. We hope to make a return trip soon.

Quiet and Relaxing!

It was just what we needed after a daughter's wedding. We just hung out and spent time together.

Our stay at Eagle Creek Hideaway was absolutely the best ever!

  • 5 of 5

We slept in with daily late breakfasts. The cabin was exceptional! Outdoors was even more, if possible. Loved the creek behind the cabin and the fire pit down by the creek was relaxing (hard to leave on the last day). Could not ask for more and already booked for 2018. Also, had snow flurries on Sunday, October 29th which was the icing on the cake!!! Thank you!

Perfect cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect family spot. We brought our two boys up from Atlanta for the weekend. The cabin was very clean and had everything you would need. The fire pit area and creek behind the house were major highlights. It was a quick drive to orchards and beautiful hikes. Overall, a perfect spot!

Always a winner!!

  • 5 of 5

Eagle Creek Hideaway has become a special place for our family where we gather to enjoy some time together since we all live so far apart. Gina and Brian are amazing hosts...always having the house fully stocked and prepared with any items you may need when staying.

We love R & A Orchards for apple picking, as well as our yearly visit to Colonel Poole's BBQ and the Jolly Roger for seafood. The downtown square has so many fun antique shops to browse and we love hitting some of the local flea markets in hopes to find that special "treasure."

The creek at the house provides so much entertainment for our dogs as they splash around and the seating area near the creek is perfect for fires, camp stories and s'more making.

Thanks so much Hancocks for always being so attentive to our needs. This is truly a little paradise for us, and we will certainly be back again next year!!

Nice, private, clean

  • 5 of 5

We never saw another person once we drove down the last stretch of road to the driveway; very private, great place! Our daughter loved tubing down the creek 'rapids' behind the house. The water level was too low for adults to tube down, but we could float in the calmer section just next to the fire pit area. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix food--we had almost all our meals there (we were unimpressed with the local restaurants we tried--but that could have been our fault for not getting much info on them). The beds were comfortable, all was clean and tidy. There were plenty of towels to restock after a few days. The washer and dryer are in good shape and worked to get the campfire smell off our clothes toward the end of the week. As we had to check in for work, we can report the internet was fast enough, but not as fast as we are used to at home. Not a problem for us, we weren't there to use the internet. All in all, a great place that we recommend. We would stay there again if we go back to the area.

Ellijay is the historic county seat of Gilmer County, and the Apple Capital of Georgia. Mountain vistas, cold clear rivers, antique shops, and biking. It is the host of the Apple festival each October. Ellijay has the convenience of a super Walmart, Ingles, Food Lion, etc. Dining is also good with Longhorns, Ruby Tuesdays, Shanes Rib Shack, to name a few. There is also almost any fast food restaurant you could ask for such as McDonalds, Wendy's, Sonic, Subway, Hardees, Taco Bell, etc. There are also many local restaurants which are favorites to locals and visitors alike. Ellijay is a good central location for all the activities you look for in a mountain vacation. Carters Lakes is only a few miles down the road with recreation areas for fishing boating, picnicking, playgrounds and swimming. Blue Ridge, Dahlonega, and Amicalola Falls State park are a short distance away. Come and get lost in paradise!
