About the Property

Beautiful 5+ Bedroom Home With Private Swimming Pool Adjacent To Family Orchard

We are excited to be able to share our beautiful home with our guest! The Orchard House sits adjacent to the family apple orchard (hence the name the orchard house) and right beside the rich mountain wilderness area. We would love to have you as our guest. My parents really enjoy doing the farm tours and meeting so many of our guests. It is amazing that almost every note left for us included that the farm tour was one of their highlights. So please let us know if you would like a private tour of the orchard and we will do our best to accommodate your time, however we can not guarantee a tour since my parents do travel a good bit now that they are semi-retired. The house is 5000+/- in square footage and sits on 12 private acres with owltown creek frontage. The swimming pool is wonderful in the spring, summer and fall and is an additional plus for families. We also have a Noah’s ark playground for smaller children and a basketball court for everyone. You can take a short hike down the hill to use owltown creek (the house sits at the top of the hill and creek is at the bottom). Sleeping arrangements for the house is comprised of 6 bedrooms in 3 separate suites for everyone to have privacy. On the main floor is a Queen master suite with beautiful mountain view and adjacent double twin bedroom. These rooms share a bathroom that features a jetted tub and tile shower. Upstairs on the south end of the house is a master bedroom with a king sleigh bed. The bathroom is marble and has separate his and her sink areas and toilets, a double steam shower and claw foot tub. Down the hall from the master is huge bunk room with a full bed, 2 sets of old hickory bunk beds, an extra mattress if needed and a large flat screen TV just for the kids. This is such a large room that all the kids will ended up camping out all together. There is an additional full bathroom with shower in the basement by the pool that we usually send the kids down to use, however they may also access the master bathroom by a hall door if you wish. Across a sky bridge balcony, looking into the family room, on the north end of the house is a 2 bedroom suite. The queen bedroom has a large window with a sofa. The other bedroom has a beautiful king bed. Each bedroom has a separate marble jack and jill vanity and toilet. Each bedroom is separate but shares the jetted tub and marble shower. The shower and tub are accessed through doors that can be locked for privacy. Also on the north end upstairs is the laundry room and a TV sitting room with a Bose sound system. On the main floor is a “summer kitchen” that will have guest pantry items for to use if you wish. The pool, porch and deck all may be accessed through this kitchen. The main kitchen is located on the south end of the main floor. It is a chefs dream kitchen with wolf range/double oven, subzero refrigerator, 2 dishwashers, ice maker, microwave and an island that seats 4. The breakfast table just beside kitchen is set up for 4 but the table will extend to seat 8. Outside the breakfast area is a deck with table looking over the basketball court, with a Big Green Egg for cooking outside. The main dining room has a table that extends to seat 12. The family room is gorgeous with a huge fireplace and flat screen TV. There is an additional sitting room off of the summer kitchen and library. We are a family of readers so hopefully your family will find plenty of books, games and puzzles. The house is very open yet has plenty of space for privacy. The swimming pool has its own small kitchen and bathroom as well as a covered porch area with hammock and extra seating. Some can enjoy the shade while others are enjoying the sun poolside. Just off the lawn in the rear of the house is a great fireplace with seating for night time s’mores or just relaxing by the fire.


Please let me know if you have any questions once you have read the description and viewed the pictures as the house really is hard to describe. We would love to have you enjoy our beautiful home. Just keep in mind when thinking about staying that we were so blessed to have the entire summer booked by mid-February and fall is booking quickly as apple season is very popular in Ellijay.

*** Please call me directly to ask about any discounted rates for dates or for corporate or church retreats, as we would love to help your group plan their stay*** Rhonda Chatham 706-889-0633
