Creel Lodge



Welcome to Creel Lodge, a beautifully appointed luxury cabin on Mountaintown Creek in Ellijay. If you are looking for a “sure thing” catching rainbow and brook trout, solitude in the North Georgia mountains, or just a relaxing, fun weekend with family and friends… Creel Lodge is the place for you. 

Ninety minutes door-to-door from Atlanta, the final approach to the cabin takes you through quaint farmland and protected woods. Don’t plan on unpacking the car straight away because you’ll want to explore the huge game room and hot tub deck; and then race down to the river to check out the rushing water, huge boulders, and calm fishing pools. 

This authentic, Chinook log cabin is bright and spacious offering three levels for you to spread out and take advantage of the abundant amenities and charming décor. You’ll enjoy the large, screened porch surrounded by the sounds of nature – the river, the crickets, and the mountain breezes.

Whether you’re looking for a place known for incredible fly fishing or some down time to read a book and warm your feet by the fire, you’ll feel at home here at Creel Lodge. The private enclave encompasses nearly three acres of beautiful, pristine property with 660 feet on Mountaintown Creek (the largest parcel in the area). This is the ideal setting for a family gathering or corporate retreat. (We also have the adjoining property, Two Brook Lodge if you need more space.)

Kids of all ages can tube, canoe, or kayak downstream to an accessible, safe takeout just beyond the Red Apple Barn. For an even bigger adventure, the Cartecay and Ocoee rivers provide challenging whitewater for kayakers, and the Lower Toccoa River is ideal for a half-day float and picnic. Horseback riding in nearby Macaysville at the GA/TN line, hayride to the apple orchards at Mercier’s, plus casual shopping and great dining in downtown Blue Ridge. If you’re out past sundown, you might want to consider the Swan Drive-In Theatre – a quintessential blast from the past. 

Without a doubt, you’ll join the many repeat guests to Creel Lodge… we know you’ll love the luxurious simplicity, rustic charm, and unparalleled comfort.

Please note:  Fishing is highly regulated in our community. It is imperative that all guests respect the community guidelines. 1) All anglers must have a valid Georgia fishing license; and 2) Catch & release with fly rods only
We strive to maintain a healthy trout population. The property owners along this section of Mountaintown Creek are committed to preserving and protecting the trout contained in these waters which are stocked twice a year.

Therefore, fishing is limited to fly rods with trout flies having single, barb less hooks. Spinning rods  and lures with treble hooks are prohibited. Fishing with corn, worms, or other bait products, including artificial lures, is not allowed. These bait products and barbed hooks make it impossible to release the fish without harming them. Fish caught should be handled minimally, returning them to the water as quickly and gently as possible.
