About Ellie McCall
I(Jerry) am a retired college professor from FSU but I have degrees from Georgia Tech and Georgia State and Ellie is my significant partner. We live in Tallahassee and try so spend as much time as we can in Sky Valley. Elie and I love to hike, play tennis and ride road bikes and in September of 2015 I am planning on walking the Camino de Santiago. We wanted to find a house that would produce calmness and fun for guests and visitors. We, also, wanted a place that when people left, they would leave in a calm and relaxed way. Overall, we just knew that if we made our place really special then guests would enjoy it as well
Ellie McCall purchased this House in 2015
Why Ellie McCall chose Sky Valley
Ellie introduced me to hiking. I found I really liked it. Sky Valley has hiking trails including the Appalachian Trail nearby, as well as water sports, zip lining, shopping. The summer time weather is delightful as the elevation is over 3200 feet high. Additionally, we have hiking poles and hiking books in our house. John Muir, a famous naturalist, said in 1901, "Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home."
What makes this House unique
Our house is very private and quiet. It is also easy to get to. You can sit on the deck and hear the rushing water of stream on the property which includes a waterfall. Late afternoon you can take a walk on the golf course and watch the sun set in the West. Having a meal on the covered deck so close to nature is a special treat that you can enjoy for each meal of every day. Even if it is raining you can enjoy the deck and wonderful views.

This home was beyond beautiful & spacious.
We traveled with 3 couples, 4 kids, & there was more than enough space for all of us. The WiFi is a bit tricky but nonetheless it works. The only issue we had was there was only one pot & the rest were pans. But everything else was beautiful & well put together. Our families loved it & we will definitely be visiting this property more in the future.
Everything was Perfect
The home is in a beautiful location, and it offers everything a guest could possibly need while on a getaway. We very much enjoyed the house, the views, and the whole community. Thank you all so much for allowing us the opportunity to stay!
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to our home. We hope you will come again. Ellie
Babbling Brook Cottage
The home was spacious and comfortable. We loved the deck and secluded back yard. We could not get internet service for phones and I suggest putting a set of instructions for operating tv.
We are so glad you enjoyed the house and deck. I don't understand why there was no internet for wifi and phones but will have it checked next week. DISH tv service can be a pain, so we will write detailed information for operating it. There is a landline phone which we encourage guests to use if needed, as cell service there is limited. We do hope you will come back for a longer visit soon. Ellie and Jerry
Coming from the "land of heat and knots", it was great... No air conditioning, no knots! Their home was lovely. A wonderful time was had by all!
Loved all the space! We were meeting my mom and niece with our two kids and had plenty of room to spread out. Very restful setting. Loved the two story decks. We genuinely had an amazing time!
We were delighted to host you at our house I'm so glad you had a great time and hope to see you again soon. It is a great house to host more than one family and the decks make it so enjoyable
We traveled to Sky Valley for a family wedding in Franklin, NC. Our stay here at Eleanor's house was absolutely amazing! The house is beautiful and quite secluded in its own corner of paradise. This house is PERFECT for multiple families, especially with children. The two decks make socializing outside a breeze, we enjoyed sitting on the deck swings drinking our coffee and listening to the waterfall (which is stunningly beautiful when you walk down to it). The house is stocked with everything you need in the kitchen, the beds are SUPER comfortable. I brought my own pillow just in case but the pillows are great! I highly recommend staying here if you have the chance!!!
Sky Valley is located in Northeast Georgia. The minimum altitude is 3200 feet so it cool in the summer with wonderful breezes and temperatures 12 to 15 degrees below Atlanta temperatures. There are so many mountains here which makes beautiful vistas no matter where you look. Golfing is the number one sport here as it short 5 minute walk to the course. However, there are both hard and soft tennis courts plus a pool and fitness facility which is provided with the rental(but not the green fees). As there are many state and national lands nearby, hiking is available with quality trails. The AT, also, passes nearby. There are zip-line courses, white water rafting, other water sports and so many neat near communities to explore like Highlands, NC.
