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.

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience a small piece of Heaven then this is it. The cabin itself was neat, clean, well furnished and had a cabin feel with out feeling like everyone else log cabins decorated in a bear motif. It felt like a home away from home. The screened porch was delightful and the fire pit was perfect for the marshmallow evenings with the younger ones. We adventured over to Chattanooga which was an easy drive through beautiful scenery. We did Look out Mountain the swinging bridge and enjoyed the Urban Vibe of downtown. Antiquing in Ellijay proved to be a great relaxing experience. While the adults shopped the younger ones made pottery in the pottery shop. We made beautiful memories with our family and we are anxious to return again. We would not even consider staying any where else.

Lovely! Description is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with 4 women who needed some serious rest, relaxation, recharging and reconnecting with nature. Great getaway from all the must-dos at home. Such a quiet place (other than the creek, occasional screeching hawk, and possibly wild animal sounds the last night!) We liked the distance from EVERYTHING since we weren’t tempted to jump in the car & go due to the winding, steep road but that is why we were there. Access to Netflix was great & appreciated the campfire area. Good suggestion to bring what you need because you won’t want to be running to the store Looking forward to returning.
