Anderson Creek Retreat

A Blue Ridge Mountain Community in a Private Park

Anderson Creek Retreat is a 1,200 acre mountain community next to the Chattahoochee National Forest near the historic mountain towns of Blue Ridge, Ellijay and Dahlonega. We are only an hour north of Atlanta but you’ll feel a world away.

Homesites of three acres or more offer backdoor access to miles of trails through diverse natural settings, creekside and mountaintop hideaways, a first class trout stream, spring creeks, a lake, and nineteenth century homestead ruins. Conservation easements with the Georgia Land Trust protect more than 130 acres as community greenspace.

Sensible architectural guidelines encourage smart architecture and regional styles. Sound covenants protect long-term values.

Whatever draws you to the mountains- the crisp mountain air, the big woods, inspiring views, clear spring-fed creeks or the Appalachian culture of music and crafts- you’ll find it at Anderson Creek Retreat, a rare find for those who enjoy gardening, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing or simply a quiet conversation in a peaceful setting.

Our Location

Our location next to the Chattahoochee National Forest is in the heart of Appalachian outdoor recreation country one hour north of Atlanta near the historic mountain towns of Ellijay, Blue Ridge and Dahlonega.

We join the Chattahoochee National Forest just over the ridge from the Appalachian Trail and overlook the expansive Cartecay River valley and the 4,000 foot ridges of the Rich Mountain Wilderness. Amicalola Falls, the highest waterfall in the southeast, white water rivers and trout streams like the Cartecay, Toccoa, Noontootla, Jacks River, the Conasauga and Coopers Creek are nearby. The Aska Adventure Area, the Benton Mackaye Trail and Lake Blue Ridge are just over Doublehead Gap. The 40,000 acre Cohutta Wilderness, the largest mountain wilderness east of the Mississippi is a few miles west. Georgia’s most productive apple orchards and apple houses are down the road in Apple Alley.

Creating Cottage Style, New Old House

“We used to camp up here all the time”… Ten years later they stumbled upon a newspaper ad about the preservation of the historic Anderson Creek watershed. “The idea was to disrupt the area as little as possible and highlight the natural beauty of the land through conservation.” They knew they wanted the style of their home near the watershed to harken back to traditional architecture and engage in a close relationship with the land. Inspired by old Southern structures known as dogtrots, they designed the cottage “as straightforward as you can get…” We drew from simple, vernacular forms… we wanted to feel like we were outside when we were inside.” “Everything we need is here. We don’t really want to leave.”
Markham Smith, Architect, and Ellen Hauck
