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 Northwest High Country

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!

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!

Great place to wind down!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, well equipped cabin.Easy check in by just entering combination to lockbox. We were able to drive directly to the cabin without going to a central check on location. And the directions to the property were great! We didn't miss a turn--though you might feel you are lost due to the isolation of the location, which is exactly what we were looking for. Best directions to the idiosyncrasies that one always finds in a home they are not familiar with. i.e. How to operate the coffee maker, hot tub, appliances, etc.. No steps anywhere on first floor. As someone with back problems, I'm an expert on comfortable mattresses and seating--best I've ever experienced outside my own home.

My only heaitation in recommending this property is the fear that it will stay booked up!

Thanks to the owners for a great getaway!

Perfect Memorial Day Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely perfect! The cabin is very clean and the king bed and pillows were so comfortable, I didn't even use my own pillow that I brought. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook out own meals. The grill was a bit slow and took a really long time to cook hot dogs, but we weren't in a hurry, so we didn't mind. The next night, we just planned ahead for the kabobs to take longer. No big deal! Our dog loved the cold creek right behind the house and my husband and I loved listening to the storms on the porch at night. There are neighbors close by, but everyone was nice and kept to their respected spaces. It would also be a fun weekend to rent 2 of the houses out there for a large group of friends and/or family. We rode our mountain bikes around the area by the house and quickly realized how out of shape we are and decided to hike a trail, rather than bike it. Ha! Bear Creek Trail is super close to the cabin and definitely worth the trip to see the giant Gennett Poplar tree! An easy hike, well mapped trail, and a few streams to cross. It was only 1 mile in to see the tree, and you can go further if you want. Also made a trip into downtown Ellijay one day. There are tons of cute shops and restaurants, so worth the 10+ minute drive back into town to check it out. Overall, this was probably one of the best weekend trips my husband and I have taken and will definitely be back. I might even pick this place over the beach!!

Loved our peaceful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many VRBO properties over the years and we especially liked this one! My boys spent many hours wading around and playing with rocks in the creek, finding a salamander, and spotting little fish. The pictures really don't do it justice-we thought the outside was a really special feature of the property -the moss grows like a soft carpet all along the creek and it looks like a little Irish fairy land! We also found it to be very well managed - everything seemed to be thought of, from instructions, to ideas for activities in the area (though we didn't do too much), to our needs at the cabin being met as far as bedding, cleanliness, kitchen supplies. Yes, there are a couple other cabins within vicinity of this one, but they appeared to be vacant while we were there, and we encountered no one. The only suggestion we could even think of was to maybe consolidate the kitchen cabinets a bit so there would be one empty for guest food items (the cabinets were pretty well full). If we come back to the area, we would most definitely come back and highly recommend Buddy's Bungalow to others!

Buddys cabin

  • 4 of 5

Only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was due to the proximity of the neighboring cabins. A little too close for me. I would have liked a little more property without neighbors. The cabin itself and the amenities was great! No problems at all with the jacuzzi or anything else. the place was clean and comfortable. Nice place. The grounds are very nice.
