"Perfect little cabin in the woods!" If you want peaceful and private surroundings but closeness to activities and festivities, Goldfinch Cottage is for you. About 20 minutes away from historic downtown Ellijay, getting here is easy. Your journey will be a slow winding ride with gradual elevation. (No nail-biting roads here!).
Goldfinch Cottage has the perfect rustic vibe with a tin roof, stacked stone wood-burning fireplace and modern amenity kitchen. GC offers an outdoor firepit, Jacuzzi hot-tub & BBQ grill, horseshoes & cornhole and a short 15 minute walking trail to finger of Carter's Lake!
Another amenity we have to boast is a close proximity to some of the best quality, award winning wineries in the eastern U.S. Even if you don't drink wine, they offer micro-brews, light fare, good entertainment and beautiful scenery. So pack a picnic basket, bring your dog (most are pet friendly) and support your local wineries!
Come for a week or come for a weekend, we invite you to relax in solitude while rocking on our front porch, listening to the leaves and watching the natural wildlife pass you by.

Wow, cant say enough amazing things about this spot. Incredible view, very private location, close to the beautiful Carters Lake. Host was super kind and generous, and the listing had more amenities than listed. We had fun playing corn hole, sitting by the fire pit, relaxing in the hot tub and boating on the lake. Would book again! - Goldfinch Cottage

This log cabin nestled in the Georgia mountains is a perfect place to get away with family and friends. The front porch is welcoming and adds an added gathering space. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are very comfortable. The property is clean and spacious and nicely decorated. We only stayed for two nights but wish it was a longer stay. Hopefully we will be able to return some day and use the fire pit and explore the surrounding woods. It was nice to have our pets with us on vacation. - Goldfinch Cottage

This is a perfect place to go for a relaxing time. Getting to the cabin is really easy, no scary winding dirt roads. The place was fully stocked with all the things we needed to make some good meals and enjoy them on the porches overlooking the woods in the back. The fire pit is well maintained and was very much appreciated each night. We're excited to come back in the future! - Goldfinch Cottage
