About Amy Padgett
We are a family of six from Milton, GA with three boys and a girl. We have another house for rent in Coosawattee, the Tricky Trout Lodge - VRBO #583476. We have just purchased two additional river houses that are side by side giving you your own private compound. When we are finished remodeling, we will introduce "The Twins"
Why Amy Padgett chose Ellijay
We love coming to Ellijay and the fact that it is so close to our house in Milton is a big bonus for us. Our kids love playing in the water, riding dirt bikes and fishing. It is so nice to be in the mountains and on the water in a place that feels so remote but you are less than 15 minutes from shops, restaurants, and grocery stores.
What makes this Cabin unique
The word “Ellijay” is an Anglicized form of a Cherokee word, perhaps meaning "place of green things" or "many waters." This would make a lot of sense considering this is the place where the Ellijay and Cartecay Rivers meet forming the Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee and Mountaintown come together and flow into Carter’s Lake: A gorgeous recreational lake developed by the Corps of Engineers. This region abounds with wildlife, including deer, wild turkeys, bears, eagles, and hawks. The Rivers are a favorite for trout fishermen or feel free to our stocked fishing pond within the resort.

Awesome location. Great place. Will be back for sure.
Loved it. We had 10 people there and it never once felt crowded. Absolutely amazing.
Thanks David! You and your friends are welcome back anytime.
Family weekend getaway
The cabin is beautiful, everything is so clean, and the scenery is breathtaking. We planned to go tubing but the weather did not permit. Because the Cabin is so specious we were able to accommodate comfortably , play games , grilled and enjoyed the hot tub to the fullest!! Our family had a blast we will definitely plan
another one of these soon!!!
Thank you for the 5 star review! I am glad you and your family enjoyed your trip. Glad you were able to enjoy the house amenities.
I cannot recommend the cabin enough! We had the most amazing vacation staying here. While we stayed on the go a lot, the time we spent at the cabin was incredible. We could not have asked for better accommodations. Amy is a joy to work with. Everything is very clean; the beds are so comfy, and the towels and extra linens were plenty for our group of nine. The kitchen was very well appointed. Parking was good, we were able to park 3 large vehicles with a little room to spare. The views from each floor are incredible. We felt so at home staying here. While here we visited the following: Amicalola Falls to hike halfway up the incredible waterfall and have a picnic lunch in the park, had an amazing lunch at Southern Charm in Blue Ridge and then horseback riding in Hell's Hollow (make an appointment), we drove up to Chattanooga to tour Ruby Falls and drive to the top of lookout mountain for a picnic. The last day of our stay we played in the river in front of the cabin. In April it is COLD, but once you get used to it it's fine. Can't wait to come back! Thanks so much Amy and Family!
Thanks for the great review Buddy! Sounds like you had an active trip! There are plenty of things to do in the area and plenty of space at the cabin if you just want to relax. Come back anytime!!
We had a great time on our vacation to Trout Trap! House is beautiful and was very clean. Location was great and the creek in front of the house was really beautiful! Soaking in the hot tub every morning was so nice and relaxing! Thanks for a great stay!
