Ellijay, Georgia, located in beautiful Gilmer County, derives its natural beauty from the Appalachian Mountains. Located about 80 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia and 75 miles southeast of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Ellijay is known as the apple capital of the peach state. This gorgeous rural area is home of the famous Georgia Apple Festival, held annually during the second and third weekends in October.
With its majestic mountain views, tranquil apple orchards, traditional farmsteads, bubbling springs, and whitewater creeks and rivers, in addition to its 62 miles of all natural shoreline at Carter’s Lake, Ellijay is 16,266 acres of mountain paradise. Real estate is available for vacationers and second homes, as well as those looking to live there full time!

Another great website the Ellijay real estate website offers is its list of resources for those who have only recently come to the Ellijay area. Many people visit from cities and suburbs for years without learning some basic local information. People visiting as mountain bikers, kayakers, and motorcyclists often realize that it’s the place they want to make their home. Although it’s grown over the years, Ellijay remains a charming small town. Even if you just plan on continuing to visit for weekend events like the Apple Festival, it’s still good to have a list of resources you can refer to.
