On Architecture

“A connection to the land, a desire for simplified living and the whimsy afforded by a slower but more satisfying pace of life is shown on the porch…Wrap-around porches, stripped poplar columns out of trees off the property…Milk-washed tongue and groove clapboard is reversed and butt-jointed for an imperfect and totally charming look.”

“Styled on southern mountain cabins of the 1800’s,architect Bill Tucker of Fredericksburg, Virginia based William B. Tucker Architects, took painstaking efforts to recreate a simple design by incorporating the local materials and craftsmanship that homesteaders would have relied on nearly two centuries ago.”

“A diverse topography of creeks, mountains, and fields- mountain laurel, rhododendron, hardwoods, white pine, hemlock, and wildflowers—feed off the headwaters, streams, creeks, in a rich and unspoiled setting…”

Wooded Family Retreat a Perfect Fit

“We had the idea we wanted a mountain place and looked for about two years. One day I found a postcard from Anderson Creek Retreat in the mailbox. When I read the card, I felt I could have written it myself. It was that close to what we were looking for. I stopped in the driveway and called the number, introduced myself and was invited to lunch that weekend with the developer and his wife. Everything they said was truly right on the money. We knew this was the right place.”

“We really got into the Anderson Creek concept of preserving the land, having lots of green space hiking and walking trails and building homes that are thoughtfully placed so they fit into this wild area…Our daughter said it best-‘I think of it as family time’- and so it is. I believe you just get closer here. and you can’t have anything better than that.”

“There’s Amicalola Falls, the Cohutta Wilderness, Rich Mountain Wilderness…along with arts and crafts in Ellijay and Blue Ridge, vineyards and apple festivals and terrific trout fishing and hunting in the Forest Service land… it’s just a great launching pad for the outdoors.”

Nature Lover’s Paradise

“Four or five years ago we started thinking about having another place-away from Florida. We thought it would be nice to have a place where we could walk out of our house and have trails to run on and places to ride our bikes… when we turned the corner and saw the pasture and barn, I got goose bumps. It was prettier that the photos we had seen on the website. I literally got tears in my eyes. If someone asked me what kind of development I could have imagined for my family, I would create something like Anderson Creek. We wanted a piece of it. It’s the perfect community for us.”

Life at Your Speed

“We didn’t want to be part of a subdivision atmosphere…its unbelievable how much open property there is here! We can mountain bike for 3 days and not ride the same trails twice!”

“As long as we’ve been here, we’re still finding new trails. I’m not sure we’ve seen them all,” says Derek.

“There’s the Creek Camp, the trout stream, a lake you can fish or use canoes on, logging trails, and a wagon trail that runs through the property, deer trails.. some trails run along ridges where you can look out over the property and some run by the creek… they’re awesome. And if you get tired of riding here, you can continue on into the U.S Forest Service land next door and go all the way to Amicalola Falls. We never run out of things to do.”
