RIVER REST: LUXURY CABIN WITH HOT TUB ON A TROPHY TROUT STREAM

Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-4)

River Rest is THE perfect place to stay for a quiet, luxury destination that is nestled beside a pristine, flowing trout stream.

We welcome families in all stages, and are ideal for 1-2 couples. We are not suitable for families with small children or those needing a rough-and-tumble facility. Families with children should inquire with owner about suitability.

We feature distinctive traditional and antique furnishings, a hot tub, on-site fishing in a trophy trout stream, situated on a quiet, secluded lane in Coosawattee River Resort. (2 night minimum)

Push aside the laptop (although we have WiFi if you can't), cell, fax machine, and pager. Spend time strolling up and down the lane by the house, fishing in the private waters of a trophy trout stream, unwinding in the hot tub, gazing at a star-studded clear night, and bathing in the noises that surround this this north Georgia retreat: tree frogs at night, the rush of the burbling creek 24/7 from the comfort of the screened porch. You deserve the rest-and-relaxation. We offer the ideal location that is secluded, yet not isolated from the amenities you need.

We are a 15 minute drive off Interstate 515 in North Georgia, a 30 minute drive from Amicalola Falls State park, a 25 minute drive from Blue Ridge, a 15-20 minute drive from several apple orchards, 10 minute drive from the fabulous Ellijay Apple Festival, and no distance at all from one of the most beautiful sections of Mountaintown Creek. It's a secluded cabin on a private drive in a REFRESHING environment that has something elegant and enjoyable for all styles and preferences: trout FISHING and TUBING in your FRONT YARD, a hot tub, a clean, mountain creek to spash in, gourmet kitchen, cozy den for the enjoyment of TV, a wood burning FIREPLACE, and a welcoming decor.

The cabin is also near other exciting, outdoor activity sites (golf course, horse back riding, hiking, mountain biking, white water rafting).

Our creek front cabin is spacious and will comfortably accommodate 2-4 adult friends, a family of 4, or 2 couples traveling together. It's of course, ideal for a romantic getaway for two.

River Rest is nestled in a secluded area on the Mountaintown Creek: only four other cabins nearby. One cabin is next door to River Rest, the others are not visible from our property. There are no properties within sight across the creek from us, just beautiful undeveloped wooded land. All paved roads, up until the last mile before the cabin. Then, the road turns to gravel, but it is accessible for all types of vehicles. The air seems to feel just a little bit lighter and cooler, and the sleep is always much deeper and peaceful here. It's a short 15-minute drive from the Ellijay square and local grocery, shopping, and dining options.

The creek by the cabin is a TROUT fisher's local pilgrimage site and flows like a gentle river: about 60 feet wide, 1 to 4 feet deep, and perfect for fly fishing, wading, and floating. Local ANGLERS call Mountain town Creek 'one the most picturesque and beautiful trout streams in North Georgia and is quietly becoming one of the best trophy trout streams in the state.'

Enjoy the beauty of a unique, Native American fishtrap in the Mountaintown creek on cabin property. In the morning, wake to a dip in the hot tub or creek, followed by a breakfast on the porch with brewed coffee, pancakes, syrup, and local apples. At night, wrap yourself in a cotton throw on the screened porch and listen to the burbling water. Tubes for floating are provided in season.

This beautiful creek front cabin features unique, traditional décor and amenities. The first floor has 1 bedroom with a queen-sized pencil post bed, 1 bathroom which was updated recently with shower and tub, den, kitchen, dining area with breakfast table, and screened porch and deck.

The second floor has 1 bedroom with 1 queen-sized, post bed, 1 bathroom which was updated recently with a shower, loft with sleeper sofa, and large walk-in closet. All one-of-a-kind furnishings are selected to make you feel at home.

The screened porch has charming, white wicker furniture including a dining table that seats 4, ceiling fans, and rocking chairs. You'll want to sit and stay as long as possible to play some checkers, read a book, or dine with friends and family. The deck has a picnic table for four, and is a great spot for morning coffee.

The HOT TUB is an easy few steps from the door. It is private, faces an undeveloped creekfront lot, seats 5 people, and is accessible from the deck with a great view of the creek.

Last, and our favorite, the cabin has a small and growing 'Lending LIBRARY.' Need a book to read while you are here? Can't finish it during your stay? Fine. Keep it and return it upon your next stay. Leave a book for our other guests if you bring one of your own.

Your friends and family will thank you for selecting a special place for building memories, having fun, and relaxing. River Rest offers a home away from home. You need the rest, and you're always at home at River Rest.

Our family lives a short distance from Ellijay. We take pride in offering River Rest to guests, and make use of the cabin for personal use when our schedules permit.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2005

My family purchased this property a few years ago, after falling in love with the beauty of Mountaintown creek that flows by us as well as the quiet, dead-end lane where the cabin is located. In addition, we like the Ellijay area, because it represents a sharp departure from the cookie-cutter, over crowded, mountain vacation destinations we have seen elsewhere. Ellijay and the surrounding area offers our family ample options with regard to outdoor activities as well as the chance to be together away from the hustle and bustle of life.

This cabin reflects the touch of an interior decorator, and our personal preferences with regard to furnishings. We think that the decor as well as the cabin location offer a unique destination for guests.

Absolutely Amazing! Perfect Choice!!!

Wow! When we arrived, we were so impressed with the overall beauty, location and setting of the cabin that we KNEW, we made the right choice! Sarah, the property owner was more than accommodating. We truly felt at home. There was everything needed inside and out of this cabin to guarantee a truly relaxing get away. During our stay, we enjoyed fishing in the river, putting on those rubber boots and wading around. Yes, there were even rubber boots to wear if you wanted! The sounds from the stream were beautiful. We grilled out on that amazing weber grill, every meal. Being a woman, I really enjoyed how clean everything was! From the dishes, to the refrigerator. Impressive! This made our trip so inviting! It honestly feels as though the owners of this property want to ensure you feel like you are at home by providing an immaculate environment. Though our trip was short, it was exactly what were hoping for. We absolutely plan to return. This is the perfect place for creating wonderful memories!
Owner's Response: We appreciate the wonderful and helpful feedback, and are always delighted to learn about the range of things we offer that that help guests feel at home and welcomed at River Rest, from the housekeeping excellence to the grilling experience to the joys of wading/fishing in the creek! Thank you so much for selecting our vacation property!

Wonderful, Romantic New Year's Eve Stay for 2

Wonderful, Romantic New Year's Eve Stay for 2

My boyfriend and I chose to stay at RiverRest for a quiet, romantic getaway over New Year's Eve. I was hoping for a nice and secluded getaway. It was exactly was we were hoping for and much more! We had never been to that area of Georgia before, so we didn't know what to expect. Sarah, the owner, could not have been more helpful. The cabin is in this resort area that is gated. I felt safe there, but the cabin itself it set far back enough to give the utmost privacy. On our way to the cabin that first night we actually saw several deer and some turkeys. The master bedroom upstairs was great. Very comfortable. I loved the open feel to the loft area. But there was a door that could be shut to have a little privacy. The bathrooms were very clean and spacious. The living room was a little on the small side, but since it was just the two of us it didn't matter. We went into the town of Blue Ridge (a quick 30-minute drive from the cabin) for dinner our first night and ate at this wonderful restaurant called The Black Sheep. We had scallops, halibut, and wonderful martinis with blue cheese-stuffed olives. I highly recommend it. It even snowed a little while we were at the restaurant. The second night we grilled salmon at the cabin. The kitchen had everything we needed in order to make a delicious meal for two. The rest of the evening was spent in front of the fire ringing in the New Year. It was exactly what we were hoping for. Enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Relaxing and Refreshing

We absolutely loved our weekend visit to this charming getaway. The cabin is full of gorgeous antique furnishings and was immaculately clean and well kept. The location could not be better, situated on a quiet, secluded mountain stream, yet close enough to town for convenient outings. During our weekend stay, we picked apples at Mercier Orchards, tasted wine at Cartecay Vineyards, grilled out on the deck, and enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub at night. This cabin is the perfect place to escape, relax, recharge, and simply enjoy the company of family and friends. We will certainly be returning to River Rest in the future.

We truly enjoyed our stay! The location is just perfect and the sound of the Trout Stream just lulls you to sleep on the screened in porch. We would definitely return! Sarah went above and beyond to assure we had everything we needed. If you are seeking a place of solace and rest..look no further!

Our 2 night stay in this beautiful cabin was just what we needed. The cabin is located in the perfect setting for relaxing. It was so enjoyable listening to the stream and nature's wildlife while relaxing in the hot tub and drinking coffee in the screened porch overlooking the water. The cabin provided all the amenities and is well maintained. Ellijay's quaint little town with all the antique shops was enjoyable. We can't wait to return.
