I have been traveling all my life, mostly renting cabins and condos in east coast states. This year a friend invited me to Ellijay, GA. I must say I was skeptical, never even having heard of this place. I can not describe the degree of beauty and the freshness of clean air only an hour and fourty minutes away from the buzy and crowded Atlanta. It's absolutely gorgeus, and perfect for both quiet, romantic getaways and family vacations with children to escape the summer heat.
