About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom log cabin on the Benton MacKaye Trail.

Located in a cabin-only development with beautiful mountain views, this cabin is within walking distance of stocked fishing ponds and the Benton MacKaye Trail. You will find this 2 bedroom/1 bath real log cabin is the perfect escape from the big city.

Conveniently located between Ellijay and Blue Ridge, you are only minutes away from fine dining, shopping, and outdoor activities including tubing, white water rafting, hiking, and riding the famous Blue Ridge Railroad. You can also try your luck at the new Harrah's Casino in Murphy, North Carolina a short drive away.

Although located in the mountains, this cabin has all the amenities and comforts of home: flat screen satellite TV, wireless internet, a fully equipped kitchen, and a wood burning fireplace (firewood included during the winter months). The master bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom has two twin beds. A full size washer and dryer is also included for your convenience. A large deck includes a picnic table, gas grill, hammock and a swing, perfect for reading, relaxing, or contemplating nature. And new for 2016 there is an outdoor fire pit, perfect for evening smores! Everything you need for your vacation is provided, including a selection of paperbacks for your reading pleasure and board games for the kids; just bring your own clothes and food.

Only 90 minutes from Atlanta, your cabin is easily accessible on a two lane highway.

This cabin is also pet friendly, so bring your furry friends.

About Matthew Gross

We have traveled all over the world since we met online and married in 2007.

Our blended family consists of five children, ages 20 to 29, one son-in-law, and a beautiful baby grand-daughter! We love this area so much we purchased our full time home just down the street from this one.

Matthew Gross purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Matthew Gross chose Blue Ridge

In our travels, we often looked for possible retirement destinations but we always came back convinced that the North Georgia Mountains was the ideal location for us. Nothing beats this area when it comes to mild weather, outdoor activities, fine dining and shopping, and the relative proximity to the big city and our children. In particular we love Cherry Log Mountain because it is a cabin-only development crisscrossed by one of the South's most famous hiking trails, the Benton MacKaye Trail.

Come and experience the area for yourself and we are sure you will agree there is no place like Blue Ridge and Cherry Log Mountain!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. Took the kids on the train out of Blue Ridge. Great day, saw some deer this morning and met some nice neighbors!

So Cozy!

The cabin was spotless! We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace one night. Spent a lot of time on the porch enjoying the view and the sounds. Would definitely go back to this cabin!

This is what we needed. We will be back . It will live in our minds and hearts forever. This is where I ask my best friend to marry me. And she said "YES"

We will be back and many more trips here . Thank you so much for the most amazing cabin. Words can not explain the warmth, cozy feeling when we walked in . It's just like we have lived here all of our lives.

Lovely Little Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a great weekend getaway at the cabin just before the holidays. It was the perfect place to relax before Christmas. The cabin was very clean and had many options for entertainment; puzzles, poker, or just sitting by the fire. We also cooked all our meals there and the kitchen had everything we needed.
