Treehouse on 6 Ponds Farm, in Morgantown, GA, is a tip-top two-guest getaway (kids and pets are welcome) in north Georgia. This cabin rental sits two hours north of Atlanta right on Blue Ridge Lake, near the Chattahoochee National Forest and Morganton Point Recreation Area.
Your Treehouse experience includes 6 Ponds Farm’s expansive 30-acre northern Georgia property, from forest to pasture, animals, gardens, ponds and all the imagination and hands-on curiosity and learning you bring to them.
In the herb garden, enjoy the smells and tastes knowing that 6 Ponds Farm gardens are part of a commitment to sustainable local produce and high-quality food.
While you’re out there, try some standing paddle boarding, kayaking, biking, fishing, feeding the fish, and your choice of hiking or bird hiking. Curious about bird hiking? Ask your Steward all about the abundant bird life on the farm.
Meet, greet, pet or feed the farm’s animals including chickens, goats, rabbits and donkeys while you enjoy the views.
A day on the farm isn’t complete until you round it out — around the fire pit, of course. There you can swing, play horseshoes or roast marshmallows on the fire.
And if you want a “workout,” you can work on the homestead gathering eggs, tending the garden and more. As an Earth-friendly farm, 6 Ponds loves teaching visitors about sustainable homesteading practices. When you’re not otherwise occupied on the farm, your getaway in nature gives you an upper deck patio for dreamy views and a back porch complete with a fireplace and hot tub to fully immerse yourself in tranquility.
Once inside the mostly glass design of the Treehouse, you’ll have a 360-degree view of the forest and a feeling of being in a world of nature and comfort. The Treehouse’s handmade rustic furnishings will make this haven feel like home.
Wifi will bring you news of the wider world, if you want it. Same goes for Serenberry Vineyards, right down the road.
This eight-guest, four-bedroom escape to nature is about an hour from Atlanta yet a world away from any stress city-living might bring. And as part of Mountain Vista Rentals, which specializes in luxury homes within the gated Big Canoe Mountain Resort at the base of the Appalachians, the 2,400 square foot Sunrise Cabin enjoys access to bocce ball, seasonal canoeing, boating, fishing, lake swimming and indoor and outdoor pool swimming, paddle boating, sandy beach volleyball, golf, hiking, pickleball, racquetball, tennis, dog parks, a fitness center, grocery store, playgrounds and more. (Some staffed amenities have a minimal cost-per-day charge.)
Your Georgian mountain Sunrise Cabin experience also promises to be clean, comfortable and designed with relaxation in mind, with cable, satellite or Live Internet TV, wifi and Netflix. The only things you need to bring for a satisfying stay is your appetite for enjoyment along with any food and beverages you’ll want to have on-hand.
If you find yourself in need of leaving the community, Eagle’s Rest (nature park) and Amicalola Falls State Park are less than half an hour away.
Carter’s Hideaway in Ellijay, GA, is a 1973 A-framed mountain retreat less than 1.5 hours from Atlanta. The modern-rustic cabin welcomes five adult guests to a retreat situated on nearly three acres of forested north Georgia mountain land at the end of a private road. Crafted to be your own boutique hotel refuge in a private pocket in the mountains, Steward Roanna offers a space with unique style that brings together natural light, fresh air and plush comfort.
Just outside your door, the neighborhood is a wildlife refuge, so be ready to see animals in their natural state. Be respectful, use common sense and enjoy all that nature shows. While you’re out there, feel free to hike, fish, canoe, kayak, mountain bike... or pick up a new activity.
As you’d hope, the cabin features multiple outdoor spaces including a large screened-in porch with an outdoor wood-burning fireplace that will bring you the snap, crackle and heat while the creek below will babble and rush. Take advantage of the cabin’s main back deck gas grill and oversized rocking chairs. In the summer, you’ll feel like you’re living in a treehouse. In the cooler months, you’ll gain spectacular mountain views.
When the sun sets, your A-frame chalet rises to the occasion. It has two living areas, one on the main floor that backs a wall of windows and contains a wood-burning stove and an intimate dining area for five. Post-meal, fall into comfort in the lower-level lounge, where you’ll find a 55-inch-TV-watching hideaway complete with Netflix, Hulu and Chromecast; or go analog by putting on a record and grooving to the old-school vibes. When the mood suits you, find your way to the bonus dining table in the lounge area that’s perfect for games, puzzles or crafts.
Stock your hideaway with goodies or necessities from nearby grocery stores and pharmacies. Divine excellent restaurants and shops in Ellijay just 15 minutes away, and Blue Ridge just 25 minutes away. Head to Rich Mountain Wilderness for a peak at another piece of this wild life.
Find several wineries within a 30-minute drive.
As Carter’s Hideaway is located at the end of a steep gravel road, Steward Roanna recommends cars with higher ground clearance.
Less than two hours north of Atlanta, the family- and pet-friendly Laurel Creek Cabin in Helen, GA, welcomes six guests to cozy, modern comfort in a creekside setting.
With Laurel Creek and its private picnic table just outside your door, and a private hot tub and jetted tub, too, you may not find much reason to leave the secluded, wooded area — unless it’s to travel just a few miles to Unicoi State Park for fishing swimming and picnicking.
Inside this north Georgia mountainside cabin rental, you’ll find yourself drawn into the living room’s comfy seating, its seasonal gas fireplace a cozy topper to the night’s DVD feature. And if you need wifi, you got it.
The fully upgraded and totally equipped kitchen, complete with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, accessories and utensils, awaits your handiwork. And if you’re in no mood to cook, you’re still in luck. Excellent German food (and unique shopping) can be had just four miles away in the Bavarian-themed town of Helen. Make it a day trip and check out Helen Tubing and Waterpark, Unicoi State Park & Lodge or Smithgall Woods State Park.
Kid- and pet-friendly Star Vista is a stellar escape for six in the forest located just over an hour and a half from Atlanta in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.
This north Georgia rental home is secluded in the hills, with quick access to tubing on the Chattahoochee River at Helen Tubing and Waterpark, or kayaking, fly fishing and ziplining in nearby Unicoi State Park. Star Vista also is a quick drive to the scenic and hikable area of Long Creek Falls.
The mountains of north Georgia are a family’s (and dog’s) delight thanks to this winning log-cabin whose interior is filled with modern amenities, touches of luxury and charming surprises, like its deck swing.
If Star Vista’s multi-level deck with spectacular views in every season doesn’t win you completely over, we’re betting the private pool and hot tub, the game room with air hockey and foosball, and nearby access to hiking, hunting and fishing will.
Star Vista is built for relaxation. Within its air-conditioned living space, you can catch up with entertainment via wifi, cook your favorite meal (or invite your favorite chef in residence to do it) in the renovated kitchen, or kick back with a cool drink and a warm fire in the gas fireplace. Grab your bathing suit for a dip in the seasonal pool and hot tub. And before anyone can ask, When’s dinner?, toss a few of your favorite items on the grill for a real mountain barbecue.
Wind down with stories and laughs around the firepit or a DVD you’ve all been wanting to watch. Star Vista, after all, aims to bring balance to your life -- even your laundry. Hate having to do laundry after a relaxing trip? Take care of it before you leave Star Vista, where cleanup is a breeze with the onsite washer and dryer.
