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

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!!)
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your time in Tranquility! We appreciate the feedback and are glad to hear you enjoyed our cabin in the woods. Springtime is a spectacular time with all the trees bright green and flowers in bloom and, of course, tubing is great fun in the summer! Thanks again, we look forward to working with you in the future. Ken & Sandy

We had a wonderful time at this magnificent cabin and it exceeded our expectations in all ways. The owners have thought of everything, are extremely organized, and you’ll notice extra touches from the moment you get there. The cabin itself is loaded with high-end amenities and the view from all three levels of decks is amazing because you’re elevated above the bend in the river and can literally look both upstream and downstream. We love to cook, and the kitchen satisfied all our cooking needs. And we loved shooting pool, playing games (we chose the Trivial Pursuit game), watching videos (they have an incredible selection of movies), and relaxing in the hot tub. We can’t wait to reserve it again!

Cabin amazed me how thoughtful the owners are in touches throughout. The view was amazing and I actually saw 5 deer down by the opposite side of the river. Peaceful is an understatement. Love the porch swing on the lower level. Hot tub was so relaxing and serene. I enjoyed watching the little birds at the feeders. I made a day trip to the Lily Pad in the blue ridge. I did a little gem mining which was fun. Very child friendly. Can't wait to return to this beautiful cabin.
Owner's Response: Thank you Cindy for taking time out to let us know about your stay. We're so glad you enjoyed your time in Tranquility and look forward to your next trip. Thanks again, Ken & Sandy

Thank you Ken & Sandy!!

We love, love, love and totally enjoyed Tranquility and we hope to be back soon! Though the Fall colors must have just peaked before we got there, we still saw many reds, oranges and salmon colors all around and we loved seeing them from so many different points of view from the cabin. We must say that you have a bunch of great outdoor living spaces!!

So many stunning views from your perch above the water and so much to do and so little time... two nights is not enough!! Hot tubbing outside both nights, indoor sauna in the "off times", the rec hall with the indoor pool and arcade games, all your current DVDs and the pool table plus puzzles and games galore! We also enjoyed sitting down by the river both in the firepit area and on the stone steps down to the landing. (I think that landing area was MY personal favorite.)

So you know -- the cabin was spotless. Kudos to whoever cleans it. We all had our own floors and decks which was great for privacy (couldn't figure out what the other people were talking about in an earlier review -- like you said "can't please everyone"). And, we liked your promptness in the booking process and answering all our questions. Plus, here it's only four days after our check out day and we already got our security deposit refund notice back.

All you've done to make your place so family friendly and comfortable were so appreciated by all of us. Thank you again for opening your place so others like us can enjoy such a wonderful and peaceful place! A great time was had by all.

"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 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...

Ski: Water skiing on pristine Carters Lake, only a few minutes from Tranquility at River's Bend... also, Lake Blue Ridge, a bit further.

Swim, kayak, canoe, tube & fish right off the property's 200' river frontage. Gorgeous, secluded location. Fantastic views of the rushing river from all 4 decks & most rooms!
