by Holly Riddle  |  Published November 2, 2019

Situated in the North Georgia mountains, Ellijay is an adorably charming, hospitable destination known for its natural wonders. The remote area features many hiking trails and boating opportunities. Foodies will love visiting local farms and orchards to pick apples in what’s known as the Apple Capital of Georgia. In fact, many visitors to Ellijay come in the fall months, when apple picking is at its peak. Wineries, golf courses and tours also keep visiting travelers busy.

As Ellijay, Georgia, is such a beautiful destination thanks to its natural attractions, cabin rentals are a popular accommodations option. Available cabins range from cozy little one-bedroom outfits to totally unique and posh glamping sites. Whether you dream of staying in a geodesic dome, a luxury cabin or an Airstream, Ellijay, Georgia, has the perfect setting for your stay, right in the heart of nature. All you have to do is find it, but these Ellijay rental providers make it more than easy.

HomeAway offers more than 300 cabins for rent in the Ellijay area, making the website a great resource for booking your Ellijay cabin getaway. Most of the cabins available are actually outside the technical city of Ellijay, and are more around the riverfront and in the more remote, secluded areas of the region. For a peak seasonal stay in the fall, on a weekend, you can expect cabin prices to range from $75 to $300 per night. As you might assume, the pricier cabins come with more amenities, more space, better locations and other perks that those more affordable cabins might not offer. Popular amenities across the cabins include hot tubs, pools, decks, game rooms and fireplaces. Pet-friendly cabins are not uncommon.

Only a small fraction of the cabins available offer the Instant Confirmation feature, which can be a downside to some travelers, as that means you might be unable to instantly book your stay at your preferred Ellijay cabin.
