Overview

About the property

Awesome Log Cabin: 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath plus loft. On 700 Feet Of Rushing Waters

Hemlock Creek Cabin

Get your sanity back! This is a spa for the soul. Always a vacation home, first time rented. Everything imaginable is here. A private valley among the majestic hemlocks set the mood of being nestled away. Nearly a quarter mile of cascading creek winds through these 5 acres. This is the place to escape the stresses of life. You’ll go home with a “new lease on life.” This log cabin sits just 20 feet from the water’s edge in the bend of Vandergriff Creek. Fell like a king in the massive log bed of the master suite with a private porch. Crack the door and be lulled to sleep by the babbling waters. By the time the sun peaks over the mountain, you’ve been walking path along the creek drawn by its soothing spell. Coffee in the swing will set your pace for a relaxing day. Lots of old-school fun: darts, horseshoes, bocci-ball and the swing.

Three bedrooms all on one floor make it easy. Lots of space in 2,200 sq. feet. Grill like a master chef on the big green egg. All you need is the steaks. Everything is here. The kitchen is equipped just like home. Connect to the outside world with Wifi, Facetime, Netflix, Direct TV with NFL package on 55” super-HD TV with Rockfish surround sound if you have to. Or escape completely relaxing under the hemlocks – probably why you came. Try a fire under the stars at our outdoor fire pit. The wood is all stacked. Lots to do nearby. World-class trout stream a few miles away with the Cohutta Fly Fishing School. Head out to Tube the Cartecay River in one direction or kayak the Toccoa in the other. The Appalachian and Benton-MacKaye trails are not far. And nobody should come to the mountains without seeing Amicalola Falls 25 minutes away. Adorable Ellijay has lots of good restaurants - also 25 minutes away.

Owner is a licensed Georgia realtor.

What makes this cabin unique

Tranquility. This is the place to come to escape the stresses of this world. The talking creek washes them away. Dozens of vantage points to let it immerse you. We looked for four years then knew instantly that this was where we wanted to spend our days. Never rented before, its always been a family retreat and feels like it. We hope you find what we experience each time we come.

Beautiful secluded cabin nestled in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing cabin! Very comfortable, peaceful and quiet. The furniture is super comfortable and it had everything we could need. The land is well kept and so is the house. The roads there are definitely winding and somewhat bumpy, but it is worth the drive.

Even Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Rushing Creek Cabin. Everything was just as promised, or better. The creek is beautiful and oh so peaceful. We felt like we were away from every care in the world. We had everything we could possible need - a full kitchen, wifi, Direct TV, beautiful furnishings and all of the amenities of home. We can't wait to go back.

REMOTE PARADISE

  • 3 of 5

Better have a tankful of gas and a large supply of groceries as this property is remote. I mean REALLY remote! If you are looking for an escape from civilization, then this is the place for you.

Cabin and property is absolutely beautiful. The babbling brook behind the cabin is serene. Kitchen well stocked with cooking tools, utensils and an assortment of spices. If you are willing to make the drive along windy roads to Ellijay, Blue Ridge, and attractions, prepare yourself for a lengthy haul.

Owner's Response: Rarely would you find such paradise within the city limits. Cool mountain creeks beckon us away from the hustle of daily life. Paved mountain roads take us to secluded and peaceful acreage. Just what a heart needs! The Creek Cabin is located 17 miles from Ellijay - a 25 minute drive. Roll down the windows and enjoy!

Has It All!

  • 5 of 5

Love everything about this cabin, but probably would say having the creek just outside our door was fantastic. We all brought our rain boots and waded in creek, including my two year old great-grandson. Also grounds surrounding cabin are level which is rare in the mountains. Inside the cabin you have everything you need for a relaxing weekend. Prettiest setting I have seen in this area!!

Owner's Response: Wading in the creek is so much fun! Thanks for your review. It's hard to find a more tranquil sound than the babbling creek! Hope to have you back for your next get away! Cathy
