Tranquility at River's Bend... Fish, tube, kayak, ride horses, hike or just take in views & sounds of the rushing river from our beautiful cabin nestled within woods & hills fronted by the Coosawattee River in the lush Coosawattee River Resort. A beautiful neighborhood spread over 8,500+ acres, it's not a typical resort. Guests have access to free or low cost amenities including 1 indoor and 2 outdoor pools, miniature golf, fish pond, trails, tubing (tubes/life vests in cabin), volleyball, basketball, weight room, +more. Tranquility sits on 200' of the river's bend with astonishing views. Rustic, yet upscale & comfortable interior includes high end linens, wood floors, tongue & groove walls, huge vaulted ceilings, incredible loft, game room & more amenities than home. Wood-burning fireplace, Sauna, 7-8 person Hot Tub, 8' pool table, board games, puzzles & TVs/DVDs/VCRs w/movie collection give you many things to do without ever leaving the cabin. Further Details & Link To See More Photos Below.

Relax, Relax, Relax!! : If it's relaxation you seek... Tranquility at River's Bend has everything you need to de-stress, get tranquil, & just unwind! Webster's definition of tranquil: free from agitation of mind or spirit... free from disturbance or turmoil. Come, experience the definition. Spend some time in the outdoor hot tub, watching the river & stars as pulsating jets massage away your cares. Feel tension-relieving warmth in your private sauna as it soothes & relaxes. Take time out to just gaze at thickly woven trees & the river's bend as you sit back in your deliciously comfy rocking chair. Kick back & feel life's stresses melt away as you relax in cozy, river-side Adirondack chairs while nearby river otters play. Bask in privacy with sounds of breezes in the trees & rushing water passing by. Let your eyes glaze over as you snuggle in a blanket by the fire pit's dancing flames, listening to nature's peace & tranquility. Treat yourself to a moonlight massage on your private deck. Ahhhhh... the life!

Get up and Go!! : If you prefer a little more activity... Kayak, Tube & Fish in the Coosawattee River (tubes, life jackets, fishing poles (not tackle) provided). Hike trails in the Coosawattee River Resort (CRR) or one of many other nearby trails, including the southern start of the Appalachian Trail (GA has nearly 80 miles of the AT running from Springer Mountain to Bly Gap, where the trail enters NC). Boat on several nearby lakes including Carters Lake, 10 mins. away, & Blue Ridge Lake, 20 mins. away. Sightsee practically everywhere (as one naturalist said of N. GA, 'Scenic touring is about any road you want to travel'), including Amicalola & Ruby Falls, Vogel State Park, Cloudland Canyon, mountain vistas (1k to 5k feet) & more. Venture around CRR & enjoy miniature golf, indoor exercise equipment, pond fishing, ball sports, indoor/outdoor pools, & more or just play in the cabin's game room. If visiting in the Fall, be sure to attend the Apple Festival (Ellijay is known as the Apple Capital of Georgia). Note that the river is accessible at two community river parks. River Park for 'Put-In', and Canoe Park for 'Take-Out'. You can also fish at these parks or at the community stocked fish pond, or at Carters Lake (Fishing License is required outside of community).

Shop till you drop (and maybe eat a little, too).: While experiencing Tranquility, visit the quaint downtown area of old Ellijay - along with a vintage 'round-about' town square & Town Hall, you'll find: wonderful restaurants / antique stores... a fantastic boutique/bakery/wine shop (Corks & Crumbs)... a magical place called Christmas House where you'll find treasures for the holidays & many other delightful items at great prices... plus many more unique shops where works of local artists are highlighted. Close by in East Ellijay, you'll find many more restaurants & stores, including: Italian, Oriental, Mexican restaurants; a steak house; several fast food chains; specialty shops, log furniture stores, & more. North of CRR's main entrance on 382 is the Corner Cafe where you'll find awesome home-cooked meals & great people. A hop, skip, & jump away are the towns of Blue Ridge (north) & Jasper (south) where you'll find many more shops & restaurants to enjoy. Be sure to see our Welcome & Guest Books in the cabin for much more info.

Why Ken & Sandy Edelson chose North Georgia Mountains

This place engulfed us in it's peace and tranquility from the moment we first stepped inside... The river view and sounds are just mesmerizing and spectacular. So many of our guests have reported back to us how they felt the peace so profoundly and how their cares just seemed to melt away. We still feel that ourselves every time we visit Tranquility.

What makes this cabin unique

Fantastic river frontage, with incredible views

Guestbook comments from the owner

"For the space to indulge in great girl talk, the serene setting to free our minds from the demands of the city and the exercise afforded from climbing the hill and decks :), we thank you. Tranquility at River's Bend was truly our home away from home for the weekend and we appreciate your kind consideration for sharing your cabin w/our group of friends. Thanks!!"

Totally Breathtaking...

  • 5 of 5

As parents of 6 children, this was our 1st vacation after 9 years. We so enjoyed every moment spent at Tranquility. From watching and feeding the deer that just walked up into the yard to all of the geese cascading down the river every day..we felt our money was well spent. Priceless adventures we now hold dear in our hearts. Thank you Mr. Ken and Mrs. Sandy for a much needed vacation. We do so hope to be back before 9 years!

Sincerely,

The Gunter Family

Great getaway for family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the area. The cabin is great - three levels all with balconies looking down to the river. The master bedroom balcony feels like you are in a tree house. Very well laid out home great for families! The location of the home is great if you like to watch the river go by see the geese float down along with the tubers. We truly enjoyed our time at Tranquility!

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home. Such a beautiful cabin with an amazing view. Lots of things to keep busy. Front row view of nature at its finest. The cabin itself is so cozy and homey. Relaxing is how i would describe our stay. Beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home and more. Make sure you relax in the hot tub both during the day and at night.

Map

Car: necessary

Tranquility at River's Bend... This wonderful retreat sits on a large expanse of the Coosawattee River front where the river bends to form what looks like two rivers heading to and away from the cabin. **Incredible, One-Of-A-Kind Views**! From the waterside fire pit, cabin decks and windows, you hear rushing water as it travels over rocks forming the whitewater effect. These navigable waters lead to nearby Carters Lake (the deepest lake in GA) in one direction & the meeting of the Ellijay & Cartecay Rivers in the other. Mountains, waterfalls, scenic highways, lakes, rivers all abound in the Ellijay area of the gorgeous north Georgia mountains. Great day trips... approx. 15 mi. to Blue Ridge, GA; 38 mi. to Blairsville, GA, Dahlonega, GA, and the Appalachian Trail head; 60 mi. to Murphy, NC & Chattanooga, TN; 65 mi. to Helen, GA; 75 mi. to Atlanta, GA. Take a drive and enjoy the lush greenery, mountainous terrain, winding rivers, and waterfalls of Ellijay and its surrounding areas!

Other Activities: Fishing & tubing (poles (ONLY) provided - no tackle -, tubes, & life vests are provided). Note that fishing is accessible at the community fish pond, or at one of two river parks, or at Carters Lake (Fishing License required outside of community). River is accessible from the community river parks, but not accessible directly from property. Kayaks are available to rent from local business, but are not provided.

Golf: If you can pull yourself away from Tranquility at River's Bend... challenge yourself to some north Georgia Mountain golf. Check out the public 4.5 star White Path Golf Course, with 18 holes over 6,139 yards and a par of 72, only minutes away...

Ski: Water skiing on pristine Carters Lake, only a few minutes from Tranquility at River's Bend... also, Lake Blue Ridge, a bit further.
