About the Property
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
A very pretty wet weather waterfall cascades off the mountain side. The creek is crystal clear and fresh out of the National Forest; you will enjoy fishing while the children splash and explore. The Pinhoti Trail passes property and leads all the way to the Appalachian Trail in Gilmer County, and from there to Maine!
The cabin is very family friendly - some antiques, some great art work, lots of books and magazines, a wonderful screened porch with a swing and comfortable chairs, and lots of places to relax!
It’s a wonderful place for a laid-back, relaxing break with (or maybe without) the kids!
Note: A second cabin available on the property for extra family, friends, etc. See photos.

About the owner: Rick and Angie dreamed of having a cabin at Dennis Mill ever since the original family cabin burned in the late '60's. Rick grew up spending the summers there and wanted his grand kids to have that experience. In 1999 their son, Ethan, took a month between college and work to help his dad start construction and get the new cabin in 'the dry'. It was completed over the next few years. They love hiking. Have hiked all the Appalachian Trail in Georgia. They have a goal to see all the waterfalls in GA and TN. (See Facebook) After building a home on a river and not staying at the cabin as much, they decided to share it with you as a week-end rental - - - Rick grew up in Chatsworth and is a graduate from GA Tech, Electrical engineer and textile engineer. Retired and has built several of their homes and cabins. Angie grew up in Gainesville, GA and is retired from Real Estate. An artist, wildflower entheusiest. loves hiking, biking, etc. -
Why the Owner Chose Chatsworth, GA, USA:
Dennis Mill Cabin is on property that has been in the Hix family since 1944. This was once a community with a post office, blacksmith shop (one there on old foundation with mill race behind it that used to have a wheel to turn blacksmith equipment). The old grist mill is still standing with a race from an old dam up the creek. Great hike for young and old. There was once a cabin on property, burned in early 60's. Always a dream to have a cabin for the grand kid's to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Number one, it is so pristine and unique. Hundreds of wildflowers not seen just anywhere. Hiking up to old home sites in the wilderness area on Still Hollow Branch (this branch comes into Rock Creek just across from the covered picnic tables). The creek is stocked by the Georgia Dept of Natural Resources with trout at the bridge, making good fishing. Perfect place to teach kids to swim with its big shallow areas and also small rapids with deep 'bath tub' areas just right for swimming. Winter is a favorite time for us because we love to build a fire in the wood stove, open the doors and watch the fire, drink hot tea and read a book, or gaze at the frozen waterfall, watch it snow. Build bonfires and roast marshmallows. Sitting on screened in porch watching kids play or listening to the sound of creek racing over the rocks, is our favorite thing in summer. Kingfisher flies by all day. Great Blue Heron's fish on the creek. Deer come by for a visit occasionally. Bears never show themselves but leave claw marks on trash cans occasionally. Large flock of turkey visit occasionally. Watching the sunset reflect in the creek is awesome. Early morning sun hitting the grist mill wheel is quiet a site. Cabin has so many little treasures that we made a list of things to spy - a fun game for children and adults. Always a flower of the week for you to look for.
