Relax, Relax, Relax!! : If it's relaxation you seek... Tranquility at River's Bend has everything you need to de-stress, get tranquil, & just unwind! Webster's definition of tranquil: free from agitation of mind or spirit... free from disturbance or turmoil. Come, experience the definition. Spend some time in the outdoor hot tub, watching the river & stars as pulsating jets massage away your cares. Feel tension-relieving warmth in your private sauna as it soothes & relaxes. Take time out to just gaze at thickly woven trees & the river's bend as you sit back in your deliciously comfy rocking chair. Kick back & feel life's stresses melt away as you relax in cozy, river-side Adirondack chairs while nearby river otters play. Bask in privacy with sounds of breezes in the trees & rushing water passing by. Let your eyes glaze over as you snuggle in a blanket by the fire pit's dancing flames, listening to nature's peace & tranquility. Treat yourself to a moonlight massage on your private deck. Ahhhhh... the life!
Get up and Go!! : If you prefer a little more activity... Kayak, Tube & Fish in the river at the property's edge (tubes, life jackets, fishing poles provided). Hike trails in the Coosawattee River Resort (CRR) or one of many other nearby trails, including the southern start of the Appalachian Trail (GA has nearly 80 miles of the AT running from Springer Mountain to Bly Gap, where the trail enters NC). Boat on several nearby lakes including Carters Lake, 10 mins. away, & Blue Ridge Lake, 20 mins. away. Sightsee practically everywhere (as one naturalist said of N. GA, 'Scenic touring is about any road you want to travel'), including Amicalola & Ruby Falls, Vogel State Park, Cloudland Canyon, mountain vistas (1k to 5k feet) & more. Venture around CRR & enjoy miniature golf, indoor exercise equipment, pond fishing, ball sports, indoor/outdoor pools, & more or just play in the cabin's game room. If visiting in the Fall, be sure to attend the Apple Festival (Ellijay is known as the Apple Capital of Georgia).
Shop till you drop (and maybe eat a little, too).: While experiencing Tranquility, visit the quaint downtown area of old Ellijay - along with a vintage 'round-about' town square & Town Hall, you'll find: wonderful restaurants / antique stores... a fantastic boutique/bakery/wine shop (Corks & Crumbs)... a magical place called Christmas House where you'll find treasures for the holidays & many other delightful items at great prices... plus many more unique shops where works of local artists are highlighted. Close by in East Ellijay, you'll find many more restaurants & stores, including: Italian, Oriental, Mexican restaurants; a steak house; several fast food chains; specialty shops, log furniture stores, & more. North of CRR's main entrance on 382 is the Corner Cafe where you'll find awesome home-cooked meals & great people. A hop, skip, & jump away are the towns of Blue Ridge (north) & Jasper (south) where you'll find many more shops & restaurants to enjoy. Be sure to see our Welcome & Guest Books in the cabin for much more info.
This place engulfed us in it's peace and tranquility from the moment we first stepped inside... The river view and sounds are just mesmerizing and spectacular. So many of our guests have reported back to us how they felt the peace so profoundly and how their cares just seemed to melt away. We still feel that ourselves every time we visit Tranquility.
Fantastic river frontage, with access and incredible views
"For the space to indulge in great girl talk, the serene setting to free our minds from the demands of the city and the exercise afforded from climbing the hill and decks :), we thank you. Tranquility at River's Bend was truly our home away from home for the weekend and we appreciate your kind consideration for sharing your cabin w/our group of friends. Thanks!!"
Tranquility is the perfect name for this place!! Arrived late at night and thought the place was gorgeous and comfortably furnished (loved the soft, soft sheets!!), but it was nothing compared to seeing it in the daylight. The cabin sits high up on a hill with wonderful views of the beautiful river and countryside... which is what I saw when I awoke with such a sweet, sweet feeling of peace and "tranquility". I actually didn't leave the place though I planned to visit the shops in "Old Elljay", the nearby maze, apple orchards and some of the other things in and around the Coosawatee River Resort on the owner's "Things to Do" list (thanks for the list, will have to go out next time). Instead, I basically hung out in the hot tub, the decks and enjoyed nature at its finest. You never know when you rent something site unseen what you might end up with, so it's always with some hesitation that I make a reservation, but this time I was unequivocably and delightfully surprised! Everything I read about it and what the owners said was spot on. They were fun to work with and the days of simple relaxation, sitting on the different decks, sipping my coffee, were some of the best I've had in a very long time. What a beautiful piece of country that I'm so glad I was able to experience. I plan to return to at least see the spring flowers and for sure - to go tubing on the river. Thank you Ken & Sandy for sharing your piece of paradise!! (By the way, totally enjoyed your sense of humor!!)
This cabin is beautiful! It is the perfect place to reconnect with family. We picked up our older son from college and enjoyed getting to visit with him. It was fun having both of our sons together again. We played a ton of board games and cards. Most evenings we all enjoyed the hot tub. The swing was a big hit, as well as the unique tree stump chair! The owner shared that he was sad the tree died, but that he thought he'd leave a memorial to it. We all thought it was awesome! The master bedroom was fabulous! I have never slept on a better mattress. The views from every level are breath-taking. I enjoyed reading out on one of the decks. It was so peaceful. The owners provided bird feeders as well as bird food. I loved watching a variety of birds up close. We also enjoyed grilling out and eating on the picnic table on one of the decks. We all had a wonderful time, and would love to come back in the summer so we could go tubing.
I was a bit nervous trying to find the perfect home to spend our first family vacation in 4 years due to a back injury
The place had to be perfect, with plenty of room for the 5 of us. We seemed to be so lucky in finding this cabin in GA. Ken was so easy to work with. The cabin was beautiful. I can't say anything bad about the home. We had more then enough room. The views were spectacular. The beds were so comfy. The kitchen was had everything we needed down to Brita water in the Refridgerator. We toured GA and got to see all the beauty the area had to offer. Then the last day we stayed home and used the hot tub and sauna. We cooked dinner and had plenty of room to sit as a family at the dining table. Then in front of the warm fire, we watched a movie. Unfortunately, the day we were supposed to leave, our flight was canceled due to bad weather. I wanted to book the house for the extra night but didn't want to drive an hour to the airport for the 6am flight home so we stayed in Atlanta instead. If anyone ever travels to GA I would highly reccomend this house as it is really the perfect home. Thank you Ken and Sandy for making this the most perfect vacation. Monica Moceikis and family.
This place was wonderful, most relaxing vacation I've been on in along time, will definitely go again when weather is warmer to enjoy some of the fun summer activities there are to offer. Would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!!
The view of the river's bend is wonderful while sitting on either three decks. Relaxing in the Hot tub while enjoying the view of the river and the sounds of the Coosawattee river water flowing was best. Tubing on the river was a blast and exciting, visiting the Gym and indoor pool was fun and relaxing. Watching scary movies on freight night while eating popcorn was great family fun! The cabin was just GREAT!! The cabin had Everything we needed for cooking and entertainment; darts,board games,pool table,cards puzzles and fishing. Visited the camp grounds for a day and enjoyed the outdoors along side Coosawattee River, the river was wonderful and relaxing.The cabin Decor is lovely. Lots of space for just lounging around inside the cabin and out. Cooking steaks,crab legs was just out of this world while enjoying the outdoors. Eating breakfast on the deck while enjoying the view and sounds of nature priceless. Relaxing in the indoor sauna just took relaxing in the Cabin to another level. Thanks from me and the family for a WONDERFUL stay at Tranquility At River's Bend :)
This was the perfect setting for our girl's getaway. Everything we needed was provided.The home was extremely clean and has a beautiful view. Ken and Sandy are very accommodating, they were wonderful to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. We loved sitting on the swing on the porch in the morning and playing pool in the evenings. The town of Ellijay was 15 minutes away, which is a great bonus. Would recommend this place to anyone!
Tranquility at River's Bend... This wonderful retreat sits on a large expanse of the Coosawattee River front where the river bends to form what looks like two rivers heading to and away from the cabin. **Incredible, One-Of-A-Kind Views**! From the waterside fire pit, cabin decks and windows, you hear rushing water as it travels over rocks forming the whitewater effect. These navigable waters lead to nearby Carters Lake (the deepest lake in GA) in one direction & the meeting of the Ellijay & Cartecay Rivers in the other. Mountains, waterfalls, scenic highways, lakes, rivers all abound in the Ellijay area of the gorgeous north Georgia mountains. Great day trips... approx. 15 mi. to Blue Ridge, GA; 38 mi. to Blairsville, GA, Dahlonega, GA, and the Appalachian Trail head; 60 mi. to Murphy, NC & Chattanooga, TN; 65 mi. to Helen, GA; 75 mi. to Atlanta, GA. Take a drive and enjoy the lush greenery, mountainous terrain, winding rivers, and waterfalls of Ellijay and its surrounding areas!
Other Activities: Fishing & tubing right at the property's edge (poles, tubes, & life vests included).
Golf: If you can pull yourself away from Tranquility at River's Bend... challenge yourself to some north Georgia Mountain golf. Check out the public 4.5 star White Path Golf Course, with 18 holes over 6,139 yards and a par of 72, only minutes away...
