Winter and Fall are beautiful times at Hawk's Nest Overlook. It has one of the best views in the resort. You have a view of both the Coosawattee River and long range views of the mountains from 2 decks that span the back of the house. It is located in Coosawattee River Resort, which is a 6500 acre gated resort in some of most beautiful mountains in North Georgia. Everybody says that the pictures don't do justice when it comes to showing the view.

Large windows allow natural light and scenic views from inside or outside. Out on the decks you can hear the Coosawattee River as it flows over the rapids and meanders through the valleys.

This is a great place for a couple to enjoy and relax with a jacuzzi tub in the spacious master bath, or for entertaining family or friends with sleeping for up to eight people. The back yard is fenced in for those who want to bring their pets and allow them to enjoy the outside.

Building a fire in the outside fire pit is great for relaxing and enjoying. You can make smores and grill hotdogs while making lasting memories.

The house is decorated with a lot of thought put into the mountain experience. Vaulted wood ceilings and a floor to ceiling rock fireplace make this an ideal getaway. The master bedroom on the upper floor has a queen bed and a large master bath with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is a loft with a queen bed. The main floor has a full bath and a bedroom with a twin and a fold out roll away bed. The basement has an area for entertaining a family or a kids getaway. It has a queen, and bunks with a full, a twin, and a half bath. The basement opens out to a full length deck that has as spectacular a view as the main deck.

To stay connected(or you don’t have to) there is WiFi and cable television. There is also a good selection of family friendly movies for small kids and adults.

Hawk's Nest is also easy to get to, with all paved roads.

The Coosawattee River flows through the resort for 11 miles before it forms the headwaters of Carters Lake. There are many amenities to take advantage of while vacationing in the resort. There is an indoor heated Olympic sized pool, a outdoor Olympic sized pool with a kiddie wading pool, and a smaller outdoor pool. There is a well-equipped gym, game room, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Several parks along the Coosawattee River have picnic tables and playgrounds.

In the summer you can take a tubing trip down the Coosawattee (and pass the house) with the resorts tubing company.

So you have confidence in who you are dealing with, please visit our other property and read our reviews (Eagle Creek Hideaway, VRBO 428220). Thanks for looking.

About Gina Hancock

We are Gina and Brian and our regular home(when we are not in Ellijay) is in Fayetteville, Ga. We have a daughter Amber (22) and a son Michael (20).

Why Gina Hancock chose Ellijay

We love the North Georgia area and particularly the Ellijay area due to the beauty and convenience. It is the closest to metro Atlanta as you can get and still be in the mountains, and in a different world.

What makes this chalet unique

We fell in love with this house when we first saw it. How could we pass up this beautiful property with it amazing views. We thought it would be a great property to share. It is near our other rental property and is in Coosawattee River resort with all the amenities you could ask for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. Being close to the deer and turkeys was such an awesome thing. We will definitely be back. Can't wait to tell our friends about it. Such a beautiful display of God's handwork. Thanks for a great place.

Our family of 5 stayed 4 nights in early October. We are familiar with the Ellijay and Blue Ridge area but had not visited in several years. The Cossawattee River Resort where the home is located is was new to us - nice little community. Having rented from VRBO all over the country over the years, this home stands out in terms of owner preparation and organization. Kitchen is well stocked, all you need to prepare meals (tea kettle was one thing we didn't find, not a deal breaker). Plenty of towels, linens, trash bags, and things like liquid soap, bath soap/shampoo, dish washing liquid, and skewers to roast hot dogs and marshmellows really stand out. Normally with rentals we end up having to buy something at the store that was not stocked in the house. Not the case here. There are labels on everything. Area map on clip board for you to take a copy with you. Plenty of material about the area if youd did not have time to make plans in advance. Just very very well prepared so guests don't have to worry about a thing.

Great views from the decks - one suggestion is to add a hammock to one of the decks in the future. Quiet, especially in morning and night. Watch the fog lift off the river as the sun rises in the morning. More than enough room for our 5, we could have had another family of 4. Kids loved the downstairs area. Well stocked board games that we used. WiFi worked well if you need that. Strong cell signals with Verizon.

If you are interested in the Ellijay area - keep this property high on your list! The owners clearly take pride in the home.

4 day weekend

Hawk's Nest is a dog friendly cabin. Our dog Sunny came with us. I think she loved the cabin as much as we did. The cabin was clean with plenty of towels, blankets and sheets. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal for a crowd. The view from the cabin overlooking the river was beautiful. The trees had just started to change colors. The fire place and outside fire pit were great. We roasted hotdogs and marshmallows. This is the third cabin we have rented in the resort. It was the best one by far. Being allowed to bring your dog makes this cabin even more special. Brian and Gina have another cabin in the resort that is just as nice. We are going to stay in that one next time we come to Ellijay. Brian showed us the second cabin when we were there. Brian is a super nice guy. When you at the resort there is an animal rescue right outside the gate called Build an Ark. It is a wonderful place to visit. They have all kinds of animals to pet/feed. Susan is the lady that runs it. She is an angel. Great for kids and kids at heart! We adopted Sunny from there. So if your looking for a cabin to rent you need not looking any further!! Great cabin an owners!

A LITTLE PIECE OF "PARADISE" !

A LITTLE PIECE OF "PARADISE" !
  • 5 of 5
Brian & Gina: Where do I start! From the first contact with you about renting your cabin to the day we left....was "top notch"! Your cabin along with its views is awesome. The location is perfect! It just had that cozy, warm feeling. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. My granddaughters called it their "penthouse". The views from the deck were outstanding. We loved seeing the deer every morning and in the evenings, not to mention each time we drove thru the resort either going into town or the pool. Even got to see a few "baby ones" The girls loved that :-) I would and will highly recommend your cabin to family and friends...and believe me, we will be back. I have not felt this relaxed after a vacation in a long time. THANK YOU again for sharing your beautiful home in the mountains. Take care.....

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family was looking for a peaceful place where we could chill out, rest, immerse ourselves in creation and more. Hawks Nest Overlook provided our family that opportunity. We were greatly satisfied with our stay. The owners thought of everything from flashlights in every room to trial size soaps in the bathrooms. We enjoyed hiking at the Amicolola Falls State Park and tubing down the Coosawattee River. Our kids greatly enjoyed the pools around the resort. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Girls and grandkids getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful home. Brain and Gina were very accommodating with our last minute rental. The boys loved the bunkbeds in the basement and had plenty of room to spread out and play. They also loved the park down the street, complete with a lovely stream to play in as well as river access. The adults found the cabin roomy and spacious with very comfortable beds. The view is to die for. We watched daily as the tubers went down the river. Our fur kids loved the dog park near one of the outdoor pools. You will find every comfort here and we certainly will return.

Ellijay is the historic county seat of Gilmer County, and the Apple Capital of Georgia. Mountain vistas, cold clear rivers, antique shops, and biking. It is the host of the Apple festival each October. Ellijay has the convenience of a super Walmart, Ingles, Food Lion, etc. Dining is also good with Longhorns, Ruby Tuesdays, Shanes Rib Shack, to name a few. There is also almost any fast food restaurant you could ask for such as McDonalds, Wendy's, Sonic, Subway, Hardees, Taco Bell, etc. There are also many local restaurants which are favorites to locals and visitors alike. Ellijay is a good central location for all the activities you look for in a mountain vacation. Carters Lakes is only 15-20 minutes down the road with recreation areas for fishing boating, picnicking, playgrounds and swimming. Blue Ridge, Dahlonega, and Amicalola Falls State park are a short distance away. Come and get lost in paradise!
