About Mountain Oasis Cabin Rentals

Eddie & I (Debbie) made Ellijay our home 17 years ago after spending most of our lives pursuing careers in Marietta, Georgia, right outside of Atlanta. Our love for the mountains, fresh air and outdoor activities brought us here and we've never looked back. We were blessed to be able to adopt 4 girls and raising them in this environment has been so rewarding! It was our desire to share this little piece of heaven with others and the Vacation Rental Industry which we have been in for 9 years now, has allowed us to do that. It is our sincere desire that your experience with us and this area is one that you will cherish and will bring you back time and time again. As owners of Mountain Oasis Cabin Rentals here in Ellijay, we invite you to visit our website where you can see other properties that you may be interested in!

Mountain Oasis Cabin Rentals purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Mountain Oasis Cabin Rentals chose Ellijay

We choose Ellijay because of the 'down home'

charm of this quaint town. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Ellijay provides beautiful forests, lakes, rivers and streams and some of the best fishing, hiking, biking and water activities around. Buddy's Creekside Bungalow is the perfect spot to enjoy many of these things and the cabin itself is beautiful & cozy and we wanted to share that with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Buddy's was affectionately named after a 600 lb. black bear after making many trips to the cabin to nap on the back deck. Occasionally he still makes an appearance along with some of his other black bear family. We feel so privileged to share this beautiful area with so many of God's creatures, big & small. From black bear, turkey, deer, and a huge variety of birds, it truly is a nature lovers paradise. Walk right behind the cabin for a leisurely walk with someone special or be adventurous and hike the well know Bear Creek Trail or the Pinhotti where folks from all over come to bike and hike. And of course one of the favorite things about Buddy's is the sweet lullaby of Barnes Creek, right outside your doorway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin was more beautiful in person than the pictures we saw online. We had every comfort possible. It felt like home here. We are already talking about our next visit!

Will be back as soon as possible! Location, location! Clean, plenty of room for furbabies to explore. Just the right size cabin. Minor complaint. Neighbor has dogs that barked for a few hours two nights which kept us up late. Didnt want to mention but perhaps owner can chat and make it better. Otherwise had a wonderful vacation!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay at Buddy's! We are thrilled you enjoyed yourself and will be coming back. I'm thinking the barking dog was probably from another vacation cabin guest since there are no full time owners in the area but we will definitely keep an ear open for that. Thanks again!

Very nice place , peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. Just two very small things. We had a small ant problem and the master bedroom bed was very very hard. Overall I would love to back.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the bungalow! It was so perfect for what we were looking for. It was a quiet, magical little place. We enjoyed having a getaway where we could sit by the creek, paint, read, and just enjoy the outdoors.

The cabin inside smelled like dogs and the upstairs bathroom had lots of mildew and mold in the shower . We went to the store and purchased candles and deoderizers to help with the smell . Also raised Windows to bring in fresh air.

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house with all the amenities, plus the perfect outdoor space! Hot tub, grill, fire pit ...everything you could wish for. And the babbling creek just makes it that much more relaxing. A couple of close neighbors but still felt quite private. Loved it!
