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.

You Are Going to Love This Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I must begin by saying that we have now rented 14 cabins from 14 different owners. We spend hours of time reviewing the many cabins available online. We have learned to carefully review the pictures and each and every review for all that is said or not said about the cabin by the owners and reviewers. We have learned that owners that are responsive and positive early in the process tend to be very good later in the process. Overall, the owners have been mostly very good to excellent and we have never had a poor rental experience.

I say all this to illustrate how pleased we were with Brian and his Hawk’s Nest cabin in the Coosawattee River Resort. He stands out as the best prepared and our favorite owner and we never even ever had a live phone conversation. Early in the process he answered promptly any questions that we had and payment and instructions were provided in a very orderly process. Unlike some other renters at the resort, we had no problems gaining access to the resort and he even had our friends who own a cabin in Ellijay added to the gate list so that they could visit us.

Upon arrival we found the cabin to be fully stocked and very clean with additional information provided to help orient us to the cabin. Everything is clearly marked in the home and he even provides ample map copies of the vast resort to help with navigation. On the wall is a large map of the resort to further aid navigation. The resort is huge with plenty of amenities, but the house and the resort is not for those seeking total isolation. On walks, neighbors we met were friendly and helpful. My wife liked the security and safety of the resort.

The cabin itself was exceedingly comfortable and clean, with the full view of the river and mountains likely being one of the best in the resort. All that you need is provided, with plenty of TVs available and plenty of room for someone to find a quiet place to relax and enjoy the great views. The resort offers plenty of amenities which we didn’t utilize, but I think a family with kids would love to have them. The river park is nice walk from the cabin and I did enjoy taking the dogs there. If you love deer, you will love seeing them nearly every day at the house. Probably every day if you take Brian’s advice and put some corn out.

Read the reviews, look at the pictures, and know that you are working with a great owner. The house is great and the views are incredible.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Joe. We do our best to make sure both our cabins are well equipped and welcoming to our guests. It is more than just a business for us it is a passion. We love our places and are glad to share them with our guests. Hopefully it shows according to the great review. Hope to see you back again soon. The Hancocks

Amazing View - Excellent Home Owners

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the Hancocks for a wonderful stay! Although the cabin is advertised to have spectacular views, the pictures cannot do it justice. The sunrise is off the back deck each morning, and you get a wonderfully different view daily. I would argue there couldn't be a more wonderful view in the 6500 acre complex!! We also had almost daily deer guests!! Very cool to watch. The cabin was well appointed & all instructions for arrival, departure & time there were excellent. We will certainly be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Dona. Glad the deer came to visit you. There is usually at least a couple that stay close by. Glad you enjoyed the sunrises and the views from the decks. We will see you again soon. Brian & Gina

AAhhhhhh!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at the Hawk's Nest Overlook, and it was just wonderful. The cabin is cozy, has every amenity we could've asked for, and a spectacular river view. We counted 10 hawks overhead! It rained for two days and we didn't care in the least. We had our two dogs with us, and the fenced yard was a definite plus. Gina and Brian are terrific owners--they respond promptly and personally to all emails. We will definitely go back.

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!

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!
