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.

Last Minute Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided the night before to head to the mountains for a weekend getaway. Gina and Brian were quick to respond despite our last minute decision. This home was a perfect getaway and was pretty secluded. The creek is great for sitting outside and enjoying the sounds of water and nature. All amenities were readily available and easily accessible. The house was exceptionally clean- this was really appreciated considering part of our crew has severe allergies. Having the city of Ellijay nearby, the indoor pool, swinging bridge, and access to hiking trails makes this place a must visit from our crew. Everyone that was in our party had a great time and only had good things to say about this property.

great house...the creek is amazing

  • 5 of 5

House was well kept and fit our family of myself, my husband, and our 5 boys well! Our stay was in late may/early June, so the creek was still pretty cold, but that didn't stop my boys from playing in it for hours. Loved the screened porch! Now I know most people don't drive a 12 passenger van like us, however, we almost couldn't get back up the driveway the first time we tried to leave...we ended up parking at the top of the driveway for the remainder of the trip and it was fine...I'm sure smaller cars would be fine=).

Hideaway in the foothills

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect! Everything we needed was there. The town of Ellijay has all the stores you’ll need for shopping, so no food was needed to bring in. The stream out back is FABULOUS! We came at the end of December into the New Year, so there was ice in the stream. Our Lab, still wanted to play in it! We will be back in warmer weather so our son and his dog can play in the water! A peaceful, beautiful, wonderful, place to stay with modern conveniences, you can’t go wrong by choosing this rental. ❤️

Phenomenal property and phenomenal owners! A definite would do again!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we put a deposit on the property, Brian and Gina were flexible, helpful and friendly. Then when we arrived, it was so peaceful and they had so many nice little amenities if needed- if you forgot something it was likely there. The cabin, screened porch and the fire pit were great. Would go again!

Thank you both for such a lovely stay!

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!
