In early March John and I decided to get out of Orlando for a week and stay in a cabin somewhere in the woods to get some work done. We didn't want to drive too far out, so we settled on the idea of staying at a place in North Georgia. There are some great National Parks in the area, so we figured we would adventure out to go for a hike here and there. As it turns out, we really like exploring the quiet areas of the U.S. (see also our trip to Port Angeles, WA), and experiencing what the local's lives are like and what they do for fun. We ended up having a lot we wanted to do, but still managed to get some stuff done.
This Airbnb is incredibly fair-priced, and was just secluded enough out in the woods near the small historic town of Ellijay, GA. Like the place we stayed at in Mukilteo, WA, this unit is actually just a detached mother-in-law suite. However, this was perfect for us since we were staying in a relatively unfrequented area that we were pretty unfamiliar with. The place was small, but super cozy and exactly what we were looking for.
A goat and multiple chickens roam this property during the day. This Airbnb is actually still pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your pup(s), but she mentions that they just need to be leashed while the other animals are out and about.
