Loaded with bonus spaces and plenty of outdoor areas to enjoy the fresh mountain air, Bucks Bear Lodge is a great Blue Ridge Mountain retreat for up to 8 guests in North Georgia. Spot deer from the balcony off the main king suite, sip coffee in the rockers, or curl up next to the fireplace in the outdoor lounge at this 3-bedroom log cabin in Ellijay, GA — the Apple Capital and home to the Georgia Apple Festival!

For more outdoor fun, read a book on the porch swing, fire up the grill for a mountain cookout, or roast marshmallows at the firepit after dining at the picnic table. Inside this beautiful North Georgia mountain lodge, find a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, a breakfast bar, and a dining table for mealtimes together. Between bites, unwind in the welcoming living room that showcases the peaceful wooded views and features a gas fireplace and TV for entertaining.

After a full day of fun shopping in downtown Ellijay, exploring the Chattahoochee National Forest, or swimming at Coosawattee River Resort pools, kick back in a mix of 2 king beds and 2 twin beds. For added convenience, there are 3 full bathrooms, free internet access, a washer and dryer, paved parking, and keyless entry at this 2,600-square-foot mountain home. You’ll also have a media room, desk space, and a loft with a sprawling sectional and TV!

Living Room
Reaching ceilings, a beautiful chandelier, and bright picture windows framing the trees welcome you into the living room at your cozy cabin in Ellijay. An oversized armchair beckons great novels and wine sips. A TV offers entertainment from the sofa and loveseat. And the crackling gas fireplace is the perfect addition to your fall or winter mountain retreat. It’s a lovely space to gather your group to chat, plan, and hang out morning, noon, or night.

Open to the living room and dining area is the full kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and all the tools needed to prepare and serve meals at your North Georgia vacation home. Plus, you’ll have added space at the island, and there are a few stools here for taste testers and friends. 

Start days brewing favorite blends with the coffeemaker and whipping up an energetic dish on the electric range. Fresh ingredients for lunch can be kept in the double-door fridge with a freezer drawer. You can reheat restaurant leftovers for dinner in the microwave. And there’s a handy dishwasher to help clean up!

Dining Area
When you’re not dining at one of the best restaurants in Ellijay, you’ll appreciate a dining area to enjoy homecooked meals or takeout at your mountain cabin in North Georgia. The table rests beneath a chandelier and beside large windows, so there’s always plenty of light to enjoy mealtimes together. This space is also ideal for board games, arts and crafts, or puzzles.

Media Room + Loft
For more entertainment on your mountain getaway, retreat to the media room that has a big screen TV for the big game, favorite shows, or movies. There’s a desk area on your way to this space that’s great for setting out a laptop for school or work. And the loft upstairs has another TV with a large sectional. With several TV setups at your Ellijay cabin, your group can peel off to watch what they want when they want!

Drift to dreamland — reminiscing about your time at the nearby Blue Ridge Adventure Park, picking peaches at a local orchard, or shopping for antiques — at your 3-bedroom cabin rental in Ellijay. Bedding includes 2 king-size beds, 2 twin-size beds, and 1 sleeper sofa for up to 8 guests total. The primary bedroom even has direct access to the second-floor deck! 

As an added convenience for your group, there are 3 full bathrooms to get ready for the day or for bed with ease. Enjoy a soothing shower or a bubble bath and curl up for sweet dreams in the Blue Ridge Mountains at your North Georgia cabin rental.

Outdoor Spaces
Spot North Georgia wildlife from the wraparound deck while gazing at the wooded scenery from the rocking chairs, the porch swing, or the outdoor lounge with a crackling gas fireplace. Top-notch views can be seen from the second-floor deck as well! You’ll also have a gas grill plus an outdoor dining table and picnic table for mountain cookouts. And the blazing firepit welcomes story swaps and s’mores any day of the week!

For travel notes, you’ll turn onto a short strip of gravel before hitting the paved driveway of your Ellijay cabin rental.
