Why The Rusty Goat is the perfect for vacation getaway

The Rusty Goat is a labor of love for us. We built this beautiful 2 bedroom/1 bath cabin in our favorite community, Hidden Lake. After more than a year, it was finally completed in the spring of 2020. Hidden Lake, located in Cherry Log, is where we bought our very first cabin for our family in 2016 and fell in love with the wonderful people and beautiful setting. We had planned to build our permanent home on this lot but ended up 20 minutes down the road in Ellijay instead.

You can see the gorgeous view of Rich Mountain from the front porch of the Rusty Goat and enjoy the sunrise in the morning. The master bedroom has a comfy king-sized bed while the second bedroom has a daybed with a trundle underneath—perfect for children and teens. The living room has a gas fireplace and comfy leather furniture. The kitchen as everything you need to make a great meal and includes an assortment of pots and pans, utensils, plates, glasses, coffee maker, blender, and slow-cooker. It even has a dishwasher. There is also a washer/dryer combo as well.

Sorry, this is NOT a pet-friendly cabin. We do allow pre-approved dogs at our other cabins.

The cabin is best to accommodate couples or those with children or teens. The second bedroom has a daybed with a pull-out trundle that takes up most of the flood space. While it is perfect for kids, not so much for adults. The closet in that room is also inaccessible due to storage of housekeeping supplies. 

The town of Blue Ridge is less than a 10-minute drive north where you will find great restaurants, shopping, and the famous Swann Drive-In Theater.  Ellijay is about 15 minutes south and it too has a great downtown square with lots of great shops and restaurants as well. There are at least a dozen wonderful wineries in and around these two towns that we highly recommend. Don’t miss a minute of the fun and relaxation you’ve been craving. Book your getaway with us today!

We fell in love with this part of North Georgia mountains after vacationing here numerous times over our 20+ years of marriage. We bought our first small cabin for a weekend getaway for ourselves in the summer of 2016 and have since moved to Ellijay full-time. We wanted to share our love of the area by buying and renting cabins that we know our guests will enjoy as much as we did during our many vacations here.
