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.

We have stayed at creek cabin several times in the past and it doesn't disappoint. The setting is perfect for a family or romantic getaway. The beds are super comfy and the cabin is always clean and has everything you need. We will be back.

Really, just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property could not be more beautiful! If you want to 'get away from it all', this is the place!

It was wonderful to crack the window & listen to the creek each night. Although it is a bit of a drive, it was totally worth it. Great horseshoe & fire pits. My daughter & I made the drive into Ellijay for some antique shopping, browsing, & lunch @ the Back Porch Bistro. We traveled into Murphy, NC for the solar eclipse. Totally amazing! On the way home, we stopped in Amicalola State Park for hiking and viewing the incredible Falls, which is only about 45 minutes from the cabin. There was so much more we wanted to see and experience in the area. Great location for enjoying the great outdoors.

Great Cabin in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Lots to do in the area, with several great towns nearby. We looked forward to returning to this cabin each night. It's located in a beautiful rural setting that is very peaceful with all the amenities. Great communication and household information was provided by property owner. We wish we could have stayed longer and look forward to another visit.

One of my favorite places!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! The setting can't be beat! We stayed for 3 days without leaving the premises. I don't think the kids wore their shoes one time. They played in the creek while we swung in the swing. We grilled out almost every night! It was so relaxing! Definitely will be back!!

What we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were so excited to see the house and we ran around like kids. The home is beautiful! Clean and had everything we needed. The creek was one of the best features of the house. It was so serene sitting on the porch listening to the water. The land was spectacular, so much room for the kids to run around and play. Although the cell service was nil and texting was hit or miss, there was a house phone we could use if needed. Loved this home! We cant wait to come back again.
