This upscale chink log cabin is nestled in the trees in a park-like setting along a natural spring brook with a small waterfall and pond. Meander along the hiking trail to a large pond. Cozy up next to the fireplace, roast some s’mores at the fire-pit or soak your worries away in the hot tub, and fall asleep to the sounds of the babbling brook. The cabin is equipped with everything you need to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city, but minutes away from Blue Ridge and Ellijay, GA.

Step into the upscale living area with vaulted ceilings and a beautiful rock fireplace equipped with a flat-screen TV, Cable Service, and WiFi. You can also access a large screened porch overlooking the back yard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances and unique red cabinets. The dining room seats 4 plus a bar that seats 2. A stackable washer and dryer are also available for guests.

The main floor master has a king bed, flat-screen TV, an en-suite with a shower tub combo, and a view to the beautiful grounds. The upper-level loft bedroom has a queen bed, flat-screen TV and an en-suite with a shower tub combo. The entire home is tastefully decorated with all things Plott Hound for a one of a kind experience.

The Plott Retreat was named such to pay homage to our most revered hound dog, Thomas. Despite his humble beginnings as a skittish and shy pound puppy, we knew from first sight that there was something special about Thomas. Once rescued, and on his way to good health, Thomas’s quirky personality blossomed. He became an avid hunter on the 125-acre farm (Mablewood) that he calls home, spending his days from dusk to dawn in the woods. When at home, he displayed such a sincere disposition and was fiercely loyal to his people. While we knew all the things that Thomas was; loving, loyal, intelligent, agile. One thing remained unknown, exactly what kind of dog Thomas was. After more than a year, the mystery finally unraveled, and we discovered that Thomas was a Plott Hound. A highly regarded hunting hound, so cunning it is the state dog of North Carolina. Perfectly described as a “mellow gentleman at home but fearless, implacable, and bold at work.” A hound dog royalty, if you will. A hound so special, he deserves nothing less than his own cabin in the Appalachian Mountains.

Located just minutes from the quaint mountain towns of Blue Ridge and Ellijay, GA, the unique twin cities of McCaysville, GA and Copperhill, TN, this is a GREAT location for those who want to experience everything in the mountains. The outdoor activities are endless where Hiking, Kayaking, Tubing, White Water Rafting, Paddle Boarding, Horseback Riding, and Zip-lining are all right at your fingertips. You can hike to several Waterfalls, hike to the Swinging Bridge, or take a more relaxed approach and enjoy a great meal at one of the many wonderful restaurants or breweries. Don’t forget to take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, be entertained at the Big Foot Museum or step back in time at the local Swan Drive-in Theater. There is something for everyone in the mountains!



This cabin is strategically perched between the two mountain towns of Blue Ridge, GA and Ellijay,  GA. You will be in the perfect location to enjoy both charming mountain towns. Although it is close to town, it is secluded for privacy. You couldn't ask for a better location.

Staff was super friendly and very helpful. Thank you.
The property was Absolutely beautiful!! The attention to detail was impressive. It was my family's first time staying at a cabin and it couldn't have been more perfect!! The cabin and grounds are well maintained. Reconnecting with nature was just what the doctor ordered. We can't wait to return in the near future!!

The couple times I interacted with them over the phone prior to our stay they were helpful. They answered all my questions.
Overall, the property was great. Only complaint is when we booked it had a picture of a trail leading to a pond. The property webpage was updated and the picture wasnt there, but still had a bullet point at the bottom stating Hiking Trail leading to a larger pond. Upon arrival, my kids went to look at the pond, so they could go fishing. There was a Private Property sign stating, No pond access. It appeared to be fairly new based off it didnt look aged. Having access to the pond was a major reason we chose this cabin. Might need to remove that from the property webpage. We assumed someone staying there prior to us probably caused that sign to be put up.
