Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Large Unique Whitewater Riverfront Log Cabin W/ views

Pappy's southern comfort - a riverfront, large (3381 sf), secluded log cabin, with modern conveniences, terrific mountain valley and river views of the coosewattee white water cascading below, wifi, handicapped accessible with ramps, shower seats, wide doorways, and main floor bedroom, and 200 stairs walkway to a 10'x24' deck on the river with smores fire-pit. Dressed up like a circa 1885 appalachian hunting and fishing lodge complete with oak antique furniture, muskets shotguns, quilts, copper cookware, taxidermy and a working moonshine still. 5 large tvs (4 flat screens - 42' in great-room , 40' in king and the queen mstr bdrms and directv ) , man cave w wet bar and 55' samsung,, 3 marble bathes, hot tub (basement deck) and jetted tub (3rd fl bath), big log swing, and hickory built-in cabinetry and exposed cedar beams complete the look. Only one neighbor (across the street) which you will never hear or see means great privacy, peaceful solitude, lots of deer/turkeys 35 canadian geese to wake you each morning at 7:30. This cabin rented for $279 / a night and a $235 cleaning fee, plus $30 resort fee, plus 12% taxes when it was with the rental companies. That's right - $922 for the 2 night weekend. Pappy only asks $211 a night, and a $110 cleaning fee (all of which goes to Michchelle who cleans it and drains and disinfects the hot tub.) No taxes or resort extras so you save $179 for a LONG 3 night weekend. Go into Ellijay or Blue Ridge for dinner! (several times)

Suitability:
  • wheelchair accessible
  • children welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • non smoking only

About David Covell

Pappy is a retired us marine fighter pilot. He also sold a few IBM computer systems a long time ago. He is still married to his original wife of 47 years (it is still a trial room-mate type thing). Mrs pappy taught second grade before retiring several years ago. Pappy actually lives in this cabin, and only goes down to Atlanta to his other home when you are staying here. He'll be back after you leave so do not burn down or trash this cabin or pappy will become angry!

David Covell purchased this cabin in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time on our visit. Myself, my husband and 4 children were there. Plenty of space. Lots of stuff in Man Cave downstairs, so I kept the little one on the top two levels but other than that it was great. Lots of books, films, games, and stuff to do.

If you aren't used to winding mountain roads it can be a bit stressful. We were there with snow and ice, other than that you should be fine. Pappy met us there and showed us around, which was nice. Great antiques collection. To die for quilts.

If you are going to the river prepare for a climb. It doesn't look too hard. Pappy said it might require stopping on the way back up and it did. It is not for those of us who think we are still 19.

We will definitely be back for a visit in the future.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Pappy's Place and loved this large and cozy cabin. The owner personalized our stay and he was a joy to interact with from the very first time. We were traveling with 12 people and had plenty of room for all. The view was beautiful, the fishing was fun and the kids enjoyed playing in the river. We will definitely be returning.

Great cabin for making memories on Thanksgiving!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin for the Thanksgiving weekend and invited the kids & grandkids up. Pappy went out of his way to make the holiday special for us. We had plenty of room and made memories to last forever. The cabin has so many beautiful antiques I was terrified that the 3 year old would break something but she was told what not to touch and never had a problem at all. We fed the deer, fished in the river, made s'mores on the deck and just bonded and relaxed. Thank you Pappy and Vickie for a wonderful time in your paradise!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic family time over a long weekend. We had lots of room for the 7 of us. We enjoyed the scenery and weather. The cabin is first class and very well decorated. We enjoyed fishing in the river and taking some vigorous walks around the mountain.

Everything was great! Very peaceful and quiet!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was awesome! The kids really enjoyed the fishing, they said you need a zip line to get down there....a lot of steps, but well worth the view! We will be back real soon, without the kids. It was so peaceful and tranquil sitting on the porch drinking coffee and watching the wildlife. Definitely coming back! Thanks, for having us! I really needed this before I start my treatments! This is just what the Dr. Ordered! The Jones Family....
