This cabin features a lovely screened-in covered porch, private master suite porch, and two additional porches for plenty of outdoor living space.

All this makes Buck Valley Lodge the perfect spot to relax and gaze out at the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains.

Cabin is located half way up Walnut Mountain with less than a dozen cabins on the mountain. We are located in Ellijay with easy access to Blue Ridge. At the end of our gravel road is the Coosawattee River. Great local restaurants and shopping are within a 15 minute drive.

This list will not do justice to all the activities and attractions in this area. The local chambers of commerce have a wealth of the same, as well as knowledgeable and friendly personnel who love to share information about their special corner of paradise. Of course, you can also research the towns and general area on the Internet.

Hiking galore, including the Appalachian and the Benton MacKaye

Fishing, boating, Jet Skiing, tubing, whitewater rafting--Lake Blue Ridge, Toccoa River, Ocoee River

Horseback riding, golf, mountain biking, gem and gold panning

Antiquing--Blue Ridge has been called the antique capital of GA, and Ellijay, with its charming roundabout (instead of the typical courthouse square), has its share, too

Swan Drive-In Theater, one of the few remaining today, operating since 1955

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, on which you can take a narrated ride from Blue Ridge to the twin cities of McKaysville GA and Copperhill TN and stand with one foot in GA and one in TN--marked with a big blue line painted through the IGA Grocery parking lot

Apple businesses where you can view the process from orchard to grocery bag, tour the facilities, shop for apple-themed goods and goodies, and try one of the area's delights: the fried pie! Ellijay is known as the apple capital of GA

Wonderful local restaurants--just a few: the Toccoa Riverside, where on weekend nights a duet of two elderly, overall-clad bluegrass pickers entertain; the Pink Pig in Cherry Log, President Jimmy Carter's favorite BBQ joint; Colonel Poole's BBQ in Ellijay, where the hillside is decorated with a giant outline of a pig compiled of hundreds of plywood pigs naming past patrons (some celebrities), and our favorite italian place, Charlies in Ellijay.

Festivals throughout the year: for example, Apple Festival, Sorghum Festival, Prater's Mill Festival, GA Mountain Fair (demonstrations of old-timey mountain practices), Rhododendron Festival, Bluegrass Festival, Dahlonega's Gold Rush Days

Numerous state parks, national parks, and national forests, each with its own amenities, activities, and gorgeous scenery

Marked scenic drives/highways, almost all with scenic pull-overs and overlooks, especially important during our gorgeous autumn "leaf-gawking" season

Countless waterfalls, one of which (Amicalola) is the tallest cascading falls east of the Mississippi; in the cabin are a pamphlets with descriptions and directions to 11 falls in the area--all of which we've hiked to--only a couple are strenous treks

Just a few miles from the cabin is the longest suspension bridge east of the Mississippi, a very short and easy hike brings you to where it crosses the Toccoa River

A little further away is Tallulah Falls and Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi(notice a pattern here?)--we've hiked to the bottom of it, and it is strenuous, but magnificent

Many other sights within a short drive, such as Brasstown Bald, the highest point in GA, Dahlonega's Gold Museum, the Alpine town of Helen

Also available in-cabin are such services as massage and gourmet chef

Buck Valley Lodge was one of the most peaceful experiences that I've had. The cabin offered all the amenities needed for staying in and enjoying time alone or going out to explore with family and/or friends. It was cleaned thoroughly and very spacious, The beautiful view of sunrise and sunset was breathtaking, as there are plenty windows and porches surrounding the cabin. Ron and Alley were very friendly and helpful with any information needed about the location. My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Cozy roomy cabin

Cozy roomy cabin

May 29, 2015

We arrived late at night and upon walking into the cabin that had a refreshing sent, it was only the beginning of a lovely spacious stay. The cabin was well stocked in the kitchen and each of the bedrooms were nicely furnished and comfortable. With two adult daughters and two teenage sons, we found the space to be perfect! Having the use of the pools, clubhouse, tennis courts and workout room made the stay that much more enjoyable. I can't forget the fire pit we used late at night to roast mash mellows and tell ghost stories. This is a wonderful well decorated, clean, spacious and cozy cabin. The owners where extremely responsive to any and all our needs. Looking forward to another stay here soon.

Owner's reply:

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Mary Z Said: My family and I had such a great time at Buck Valley Lodge. We have stayed at the owners other cabin in the past and loved it so we thought we'd give this one a try. It did not disappoint at all. There was so much room to spread out and all of the furniture and beds were extremely comfortable. I have to find out where they get the pillows from, they are incredible! The cabin was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We loved sitting out on the decks and sipping our morning coffee then taking a short walk down to the river. The kids loved going to the indoor pool and playing for hours as well as playing in the game room. We did a winery tour one day and hiked to the waterfall. We love this area and will be back soon to stay at Bearadise or Buck Valley!
