Ellijay is also the apple capital of the North Georgia Mountains and has an Apple Festival every fall. Conveniently close to prime mountain bike trails, hiking trails, whitewater rafting and canoeing on the Cartecay and Toccoa rivers, Amicalola Falls, and the Appalachian Trail.

A note from the owners:
We highly recommend you read the guestbook! (See link below with over 80 comments) Our former guests are truly the best form of advertising we have.
We designed and built this home as our "dream home" that we would spend the rest our lives in. Little did we realize how children can change your outlook on what is the "perfect" place to live. The home took us 3.5 years to construct & we did most of the work, camping on the property while we built. It is truly a unique property like no other in the North Georgia Mountains & we have been unable to capture more than one quarter of our view in one photo image. The view is literally as far as you can turn your head from one direction to the other, year round.
In October of 2003, we decided to make it available for vacation rental use for the first time. It is a very large home with all the upgrades and attention to detail that we could afford. Many of our guests have been overwhelmed with the value they received for their vacation dollar. While we have done our best to make sure everything is just right for our new guests, we will continue to make improvements as time goes on. We hope you come to love it as much as we do...
Don't let the full moon's go to waste! They are truly awesome in this house!
Best Wishes and hope you find your perfect place for your mountain getaway!
