Hawk's Nest 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.

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.

Spring Break with grandparents and teens!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this adorable cabin. We have never seen so many deer up close and got great pictures and film of them eating corn. The view is spectacular and would be unobstructed any time of year. The sound of the river is so soothing sitting out on the deck with coffee and a book. We did some great hiking and rode the blue ridge railroad. We will definitely be back. We would love to be therw to ride down the river on tubes and then to pick apples in the fall. This will be our home away in the mountains when we need a break from our beach life. Thanks so much Brian and Gina for sharing. And thanks for your outstanding communication throughout the whole process.

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to make great memories with your family. You definitely need to tube down the river in the summer. You can see the cabin high on the mountain as you pass by. Fall with the leaves, apple picking and all the festivals are a favorite for many. Looking forward to having you back soon. The Hancock's

Breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

The moment I stepped out onto the back deck of Hawk's Nest Overlook, I felt my stress dissolve and my cares drop away. It was just the start of a really lovely weekend, made all the better due to Brian and Gina's attention to detail and thoughtfulness. Everything that a guest may need to know is clearly spelled out, from the directions to the property to the "how to" signs posted around the home. This is a very well-appointed home with many little extras, such as the availability of firewood next to the fire pit (and marshmallow toasting forks, too!). A perfect getaway...I intend to go back as soon as possible!

Great place - great people!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful weekend at Hawks nest. Great view of mountains and river. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. With two families of four there was plenty of room for the adults up stairs and kids in the basement. Would absolutly recommend and look forward to our next stay. Owners really care and have a passion for the area and service.

Owner's Response: Russell and Christie, it was a pleasure having you stay with us. Hawk's Nest is great for families. The basement is great for a kids get-away or for a family to have their privacy. It has a TV and sleeping arrangements as well as the same view you get from the main floor deck. Looking forward to having you again soon.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our stay. The house had every imaginable amenity, with more than enough room for 6 adults. The views were nothing short of amazing. We saw deer at every turn and watching the sunrise from the deck with a cup of hot coffee was something to behold.

Owner's attention to detail stands out!

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!
