About Laura Thompson

We are a family of four that loves the mountains & have always rented river cabins every year in Ellijay, GA. We love tubing, fishing, mountain biking, and just relaxing too. When we found this river cabin, we knew it was meant for us! 'River Music' cabin is now our favorite! We are very proud and excited to share it with you. Welcome to the river!

Laura Thompson purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Laura Thompson chose Ellijay

We knew this property was amazing the first time we stepped on the screened porch. Gorgeous views of the river and trees. No other cabins to look at. So private and peaceful. We fell in love immediately. We named the property River Music due to the amazing sounds of the Coosawattee River rushing below.

What makes this cabin unique

The property is so peaceful and relaxing. We back up to Corps of Engineer property so no cabins to look at, only river, rocks, wildlife and beauty! New paved driveway installed in 2012 as well and paved roads to the beginning of the driveway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have stayed at River Music about a half dozen times now - and each time if more fun and more relaxing than the last. Almost a second home to us, we really cherish our time there. Leaving is tough, and we miss being so close to the river!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I knew from the minute I stopped the car, opened the door and heard the melodic sound of the river, that I had made the perfect cabin choice for my weekend escape. The cabin is nestled in a private setting at the bottom of a concrete driveway overlooking a wide expanse of the Coosawatte River. The melodic sound of the river welcomed me and served as an ever-present background for a restful and relaxing visit. The cabin was everything as advertised and more. The cabin has all the comforts of home and everything one needs for a vacation. The quaint shops and restaurants of the nearby village of Ellijay provided a destination for easy afternoon excursions. Evenings found us relaxing on the screen porch, sitting around the adjacent fire pit and/or relaxing in the hot tub. Staying on a few days, we didn’t venture far from the cabin to explore the amenities of the resort, but there’s always next time. Enjoying the sunset with a great bottle of wine on the river banks ‘s seating area at the bottom of the steps down from the cabin was just the icing on the cake. From reservation to checkout, the owners did everything possible to ensure we had an enjoyable vacation. Thanks again Laura for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful cabin. I feel certain that the call of the river’s music will entice us to visit again in the very near future!

Wonderful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderfully relaxing time at this comfy and spacious cabin.The main floor has a small bedroom with a bunk bed, king bedroom with access to the screened in deck, bathroom with washer and dryer, and roomy kitchen and living room area also with access to the screened in deck. Upstairs is the master suite with access to an upper screened in deck and also the pool table in the loft. In the cool mornings, we all enjoyed sipping our hot drinks while sitting on the decks and listening to the river. We loved the music of the river!

The unfinished basement had a supply of river shoes, roasting sticks, and a few river tubes, but we brought our own just in case. The basement leads out to the relaxing hot tub, the fire pit, and the steps to the river. We enjoyed the fire pit - a great place to roast hotdogs and marshmallows!

Tubing the river was a blast! In our welcome packet, the owner gave directions for a tubing drop off place to be able to tube back to the cabin. We decided to all walk there so we could enjoy it together. It was almost a 3/4 mile walk, and it was an awesome ride back to the cabin - riding the mini "rapids" and lulls!

The adults enjoyed sitting in the chairs by the river, and the kids loved playing in the water. We seemed to have the river to ourselves, never seeing anyone but deer, ducks, geese, heron, and otters.

Beside the river, we also enjoyed the board games provided at the cabin, the pool table, and mini golf, ping pong and foosball at the resort clubhouse.

The owner did a great job of communication and was was very helpful answering questions and making us feel welcome. We definitely recommend this cabin and would love to go back sometime!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a few days. It was the perfect getaway. The pictures don't do justice for cabin and river. Breathtaking views all around. The cabin owners have thought everything through. We hope to return to this place one day.

Ahhh-mazing spring break at River Music Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I LOVED our stay at River Music Cabin!! There was me & my hubby, 3 teens, & our 10 yr old son and we all fell in love with River Music Cabin! It was very clean & well stocked- above & beyond what we expected! We roasted marshmallows & hot dogs over the firepit and although it was too cold to go swimming, we briefly 'dipped' in the river. The pool table was a hot item with my crew as we spent hours playing! We visited the rec center & took advantage of a good work out in the gym and also the indoor pool. We especially enjoyed the Hot Tub at the cabin! The weather was so perfect that we often left the the doors opened, with the peaceful sound of the river lulling us to sleep. It was just an AWESOME spring break experience for us all. Thanks Laura & Scott! We plan to visit again!!! :) ~ Missy Howell from Douglas, GA.
