About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2), Discounts for stays of 5 days or more

If privacy, peace and quiet is what you want, try our like new 2004' cabin, situated on 4.7 acres of hardwood forest, in the NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAINS.

Go down a gentle path and relax next to the winding, spring fed creek or follow it into the adjoining 400 acres of rarely used US FOREST SERVICE land for more active exploring and hiking.

The thick carpet of ferns in this part of the forest during warmer months (it's never hot) adds to the already impressive natural beauty of the site. You see no other homes from the cabin.

Cricket Creek is ideal for couples. The main level master bedroom has a king size log bed under a vaulted ceiling and includes a DEEP two-person spa for unwinding.

There is a full bath with shower, and washer and dryer on the main level.

The great room's pine ceiling peaks 20 feet above a plush leather couch just perfect for watching a movie.

French doors take you from your recliner, in front of the gas log fireplace, to the large covered & screened rear porch (one of three) which offers a gas grill, breakfast table and of course, rockers. (Look for the tree 'elf' from here).

Our cabin is completely furnished with everything you need from modern appliances and kitchen needs to linens and towels. There's even high speed wireless internet and unlimited domestic long distance telephone.

You will be secluded enough for abundant wildlife but only a 15 minute drive from Blairsville's shops and stores. The cabin's location provides easy access to area activities and attractions such as Vogel State Park, the Appalachian Trail, Benton MacKay Trail (one-half mile), mountain biking, the Blueridge Railroad, antiquing and shopping in Blairsville, Blueridge and Helen.

About Tom Wammack

Tom & Marcie live in the Fla. Keys and have visited the North Georgia Mountains for 16 years. They have owned a vacation/rental cabin there since 2001, first in Helen and now Blairsville.

Tom Wammack purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Tom Wammack chose Blairsville

To build our new cabin, we were looking for several acres with both creek and USFS frontage that was easy to walk on (not an easy task). After two years of looking we finally found this property which checked all the boxes.

What makes this cabin unique

The best thing about Cricket Creek is the feeling of seclusion. Even though you are only 15 minutes from town you don't see any other developement from our property. It's very peacefull here.

Our 1/4 mile walking trail along the creek is the property feature most often mentioned by our guests as their favorite property feature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted you to know that your web site pictures do not do justice to your cabin. My wife and I enjoyed it tremendously. Very peaceful and tranquill. I am sure we will be visiting again in the future.

Serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time!!! We are ready to go again. The cabin was absolutely beautiful everything we hoped for...and more. The grounds were also beautiful and serene. My husband and I toured the area, visited Blairsville, the Swinging Bridge and hopped over to the quaint town of Helen.

The creek was beautiful and crickets at night lulled us to sleep at night. If you are looking for a relaxing soul searching and fun place, Cricket Creek is the place! Their home is beautiful and we called it our home for four days too!!! Thank you Tom and Marcie.

Peaceful and serene retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin from July 19-26, 2018....while most of the country was experiencing a heat wave, we were enjoying temps in the evening and the morning in the low 60's. The cabin is lovely with all the amenities you could ask for in a home away from home. The owners have charmingly decorated it and supplied it with plenty of kitchen equipment to make it easy to prepare meals, if you choose. In addition, there is a Jacuzzi tub, a fireplace and the most inviting back porch where you can rock and listen to the bubbling creek on the property! There are falls close by, hiking trails, and other activities for all ages. It is truly a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the North Georgia Mountains.

Perfect Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As someone who is extremely allergic to pet hair, I am always nervous about renting from others - but this place was immaculate! They left no detail to chance and I give my hats off to your house keeper. The whole place was ideal - from the porch to the tub and the fireplace! We literally could have stayed here for a week or more and never left, but we also had easy access to several towns nearby for activities in Dial, Blairsville, or Blue Ridge. The gravel road was well maintained and we had no trouble at all. I found the owners, Tom and Marcie to be extremely responsive and gave us plenty of insight into what to expect. This was exactly what we were looking for, and we hope we get to come back! The creek was running and full when we left. The backyard literally is the most calming experience. - almost like looking at a real life screen saver it is so picture-perfect.

Clean, very well appointed and super comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at Cricket Creek. The cabin is very nice and everything is labeled so that you know exactly where everything is located. The bed is very comfortable and the tub was my girlfriend's favorite part! The cabin is in a central location to many great spots in N GA to hike, tube or site see. The walking trail through the woods was nice & easy to follow. Communication with the owner was super and he was very informative about local dining and sights to explore. Overall, great stay! Will certainly be returning.
