Restful Solitude

My adult son, Maggie our Brittany, and myself spent a relaxing 4 nights at the cabin. I'm an avid trout angler and managed to get a trophy trout in with only a 4 lb tackle. Anyone who fishes can appreciate the success. I reached to pick the beautiful 7 or 8 lb brown trout and the line broke when I touched it. I will be back to get this fish, it has my name on it. My Brittany loved to wade down the stream with me as I fished. Back to nature, no sounds but beautiful birds and serenity. Plenty of room for my Brittany to run and hunt. My son relaxed and had an awesome time also, he was able to get the Braves on t.v. I needed this time, loved it, and will be back. I won't tell anyone where I landed the trophy trout unless they want to rent the cabin. We will be back, soon I hope.

Perfect Getaway

This is the prefect getaway spot. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. Sitting on the porch listening to the water rush down and a picture perfect view. The cabin was clean, quiet and very comfortable and easy to get to. We did not want to leave. Our four legged babies had plenty of room to explore. Communication from the owner was better than I could have expected. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing and much needed vacation!

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Susan for the great review. I work hard at making all our renters feel like home.

Travel agent visiting Ellijay

Being in the travel business for 18 years this is definitely a property I would recommend to my clients. My husband and I went there for a weekend stay and it's so peaceful. When you sit on the back deck and look over your looking at the creek and the sound of the water is so peaceful. The cabin is clean and nicely decorated as a cabin should be!! The owners are great and very courteous. It's a great location for zip lining, tubing, riding the blue rail train or my favorite white water rafting. We will be returning for another stay!!

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks Tammy for the kind words. We are loving the coffee mugs you bought us. Hope y'all can visit again soon.

Much needed Relaxation

From the moment we arrived, all the day to day stress was washed away be the sounds of rushing water literally right outside the front door. It is truly an awesome place just to relax and let the sounds of nature wash all your worries away. The accommodations far exceeded our expectations, the cabin is very well kept, with every thing you need for a quite and relaxing break from the day to day. We've already planned our next trip and are looking forward to more fishing, hiking, and just enjoying the spacious wrap around deck that overlooks the creek. Simply put Tinkers Cabin provides all the creature comforts of home in a setting that was hard to leave. Oh, by the way, the fishing is AWESOME!

Such an awesome Blessing! Peaceful and quite. Cabin was clean and nicely furnished to feel like being at home. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, all you need to cook a nice meal if you wanted to. The sound of the running water was so very relaxing. Carmen was so helpful and nice, we loved dealing with her. We recommend this cabin to anyone to wanting a peaceful getaway. We were trying to plan our next visit when we hadn't even left!

The peaceful sounds.

When we arrived on Friday and opened our car door, the sounds of the water rushing by was just heavenly. I am so glad I found this cabin to rent. Such a quiet and peaceful place for relaxing. Carmen & Rick, again thanks so much for allowing us to stay at your cabin. It was awesome.

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much!! Glad you had a great stay.

Really nice area!

We stayed 2 nights in this cabin. It is very clean and well maintained. Everything we needed was there. It is a beautiful spot with fishing right outside the door. We discovered there is also a set of stairs downstream that you can walk down to the water and fish. Upstream is a waterfall. You can't walk all the way up to it but you can walk part of the way and view it-loved it! Just an overall neat experience. There is wifi available and a house phone. There is also some cool stuff nearby: Cartecay Vineyards, Mack's Orchards, a convenience/food store, and another orchard all at the end of Rackley Road. It is maybe a 15 minute (beautiful!) drive and all of those are within a mile of each other. We used google to navigate our way around the mountain. It's only about 10 miles or so to Ellijay so you aren't really that far out. We also managed to see some wild chickens! lol They were running around on the mountain but they were pretty neat. The owners are very responsive and were available for any questions we had. Was a easy process. Thanks for everything.

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks Ember!! Hope you can return again soon.

beautiful setting......the creek right off the porch was relaxing and mesmerizing.......the cabin was beautiful and the décor exceptional. good fishing, too, especially "the hole" that Rick told us about! it was enjoyable!

Jo McGuire


peaceful comfort

Super nice owners who showed great hospitality! Our family was very comfortable in this private oasis. We watched some Aggie football, waded in the creek, and spent a lot of time swinging on the large deck overlooking the water. This is the kind of place you rent when you truly want to get away and relax. We hope to do it again as soon as possible! Thanks Rick and Carmen for sharing God's blessings with us!

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much!! Hope you can come back soon.



More than I hoped for

I rented this cabin because it met my criteria. It was close by, reasonably priced, and on the water. My friends and I were pleasantly surprised at the comfortable well taken care of inside of the cabin, the large covered back deck right on the water, and the fire pit that got plenty of use. We're already planning a trip back soon

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much!! Hope to hear from you soon.

A little piece of heaven

Words cannot really describe what a wonderful place y'all have! We really have enjoyed our stay there despite of the rain! It is so peaceful and tranquil. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch just listening to the stream and the birds chirping. Your cabin's decor is exceptional, it is very clean and homey and everything was stocked up with the basic needs that we did not have to make a trip to the store. Thank you so much for sharing your treasure with us! Y'all have been so accomodating, friendly and have replied to our questions immediately. This has been a truly an amazing experience for us. We got our much needed rest and relaxation! This will definitely be not our last visit or stay here because we are already planning our next trip there!

What a wonderful treasure that you have. It was like a Thomas Kincade painting. From the mist rising off the water early in the morning to the sound of the relaxing water, what more could anyone want. We were very impresed that your place had everything that you could want. Well stocked supplies and comfortable beds. Oh so quiet and peaceful...and the view from the Again everything that you said plus more!!! The trout fishing was excellent...the smallest trout 18 inches. Can't wait to catch the big one that got away... We liked your palce so much that we have already reserved it for next year and will be visiting again this year. Again thanks for sharing your treasure with us. We will be telling all our friends about your place.

God's Country!

Wanted to relax with the family and this cabin exceeded expectations.Super clean and completely stocked. No unscheduled shopping runs as everything was already provided for us. Family of four, two boys, 12 and 16 and we all stayed entertained. Loads of seating on the porch overlooking a clear trout stream (literally within feet), banked by a beautiful pasture. Caught quite a few monster trout (rainbow & black) which was fun for all and quite tasty. Woke up Easter morning in time to watch the sun come up over the mountain backdrop. Seemed to fit the spirit of the day as there was no doubt that we were in God's Country!

Tinker Cabin Get-A-Way

We had a great week at the Tinker Cabin in Ellijay Georgia. We look forward to going back in the near future. We fell in love with the place, nice decor, very clean, the cabin is right beside the rushing waters. I must say, we had the most relaxing vacation ever. I highly recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a nice get-a-way. I rate this cabin the highest possible. The price is very reasonable.

Thanks so much Trixie!!

Great place to stay!

Carmen was very helpful with clear directions to the cabin. It was just what we were looking for with the beautiful creek just off a large porch. The cabin was clean and the kitchen very well stocked with more than we had in other places and very cozy but enough room. The peace and quiet was priceless. Also pet friendly, which meant a lot to us. Ed loved trout fishing in your creek.

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks Geri!! Hope y'all can come back and visit soon.

A little peace of Heaven

What an incredible place!!! My fiancee' and I had a wonderful, relaxing time at this cabin. We were lucky enough to get 4 inches of snow while we were there.....the place looked like a postcard! The incredibly comfortable cabin has everything you need to enjoy your stay and we're already planning a return visit in the spring. You can't help but relax and unwind up there....Carmen and Ricky have a wonderful place and from the moment we walked in we felt comfortable and right at home. Can't wait to get back up there for some more R&R!!

Peaceful and relaxing

I went to Elijay for a week of training and opted for a cabin vs. hotel. Loved every minute of the trip. This made it possible for my mother and son to come along and enjoy the week. They loved the fishing and it was great my son actually caught a fish. Carmen has the place decorated very nicely. Very roomy cabin for a family to enjoy. the evenings listening to the stream while playing cards on the deck was a highlight to our trip. Plenty of patio furniture to enjoy the stream. Fully furnished kitchen and linens. Even with the training I had to attend I still thoroughly enjoyed the scenery. only a 16 minute ride into downtown elijay, very secluded cabin.but roads to the cabin were great. Very Very relaxing Place to stay. Hopefully we will get to visit again. can't wait.

Carmen Tinker

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Ginger I hope y'all can come back and visit.

What can I say? I absolutely love your "little piece of Heaven"! I love the trout stream off the front porch. The sound of the flow is is so relaxing. The cabin is decorated so beautifully. I love where it sits and the sceneray. We also enjoyed riding 4 wheelers thru the mountains. The fire pit is perfect for nightfall to sit around with your family and friends. If it were my cabin, I would not hesitate to live there! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us. I cant wait til we can visit again!


Tifton, Ga.


We spent the weekend, me and my wife and our three children, and had a great time. We really enjoyed the fishing and the privacy. Sitting on the porch and listening to the stream will make you want to stay a week or two. Take groceries with you when you go so you can cook there and spend more time in this peaceful setting. Owners were very helpful and willing to offer what we needed. Cabin was very clean which was very important to us. Again, very enjoyable stay. My two boys are already planning another trip there to do more fishing. They want to catch more big trout,
