Reconnect as you enjoy a simpler pace of life at this secluded waterfront destination located within the Coosawattee River Resort!
Listen to the river's 'concert', gather around the cozy fireplace, sink into Adirondack chairs at the riverside fire ring, or relax in the hot tub. Experience nature's serenity while fly fishing, tubing, playing pool, or losing yourself in a book. This log cabin, with its charming mountain décor and comfortable furnishings, is the perfect escape from your daily routine. Feel worlds away from it all with Chattanooga and Atlanta only a short trip away. Yes, internet access is available for those who can't live without it.
Our family consists of two Atlanta area professionals with three children who keep us very, very busy. We understand the value of precious vacation time and how necessary it is to get away from the hectic day to day.
Jennifer Elwood purchased this cabin in 2007
We chose this cabin because we love to sit on the front porch or near the fire pit and listen to the river rapids. The North Georgia mountains offers our family an opportunity to escape the business of suburban living, but is close enough to take advantage of on a regular basis.
Just a short note to let you know we really enjoyed our vacation at the cabin. The Smores were a nice surprise especially since my granddaughter asked me on the way there if I remembered to bring marshmallows. The water was a very nice surprise. Your pictures do not show how beautiful it really is.

Thank you Jennifer and Lonnie for opening up your cabin for our fabulous family vacation!! This was such a relaxing time where we could all reconnect with each other. Our two sons, their wives and our three little grandchildren - Noah 5 1/2 years, Brannon almost 5 years and Natalie almost 3 years old really enjoyed the river. Tubing was such an adventure and wading/playing in the cool water was refreshing. We enjoyed walking and exploring and took tons of pictures. We loved the camp fire and making s'mores. One day was spent riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway but otherwise we did not feel the need to go anywhere else. There were plenty of games at the cabin but would recommend bringing additional paper supplies and your own body wash/soap. Stocking up before you settle in is best because you won't want to leave!
We rented this cabin for a class reunion with old friends we loved everything about it. The river right in front was so peaceful the house was breathtaking inside and out. The hot tub out back was so refreshing. There is so much more space than what pictures on here show. Everything was perfect up in till the very last hour of our stay. There is a hand written sign on the fridge that has a number to let know if we had decided to leave early(before 10am). In the renters information I received. It stated check in at 4pm check out at 11am. So 10am on check out day arrived and we were "greeted" (more like forced) to leave because on the handwritten piece of paper it said 10am checkout. Her words. There was two individuals who came the man was very kind the women was very rude unprofessional and the stain on what was a perfect trip. What it seem liked is that she just wanted to get her day out of the way as fast as possible regardless of how much time we had left on our rent which we paid for. This didn't happen till the very last hour of our stay. Besides the vile women banging on our door it was perfect. This cabin is paradise I just hope the help is changed for the future renters to enjoy and leave comfortable unlike we where not able to.
We really enjoyed ourselves. Being on the water is the way to go. We had no problems with the cabin. It was perfect for our two sons and husband and I. Having a 20 & 16 year old they each had their own space which worked out great.
The only issue we had was it took us about 20 minutes to get from the main gate to the cabin. The roads go from paved to gravel and were very winding roads. Get all you need before you head in because it takes a while to pop in at the store.
This trip gave us some great quality time with our sons. Weather was perfect along with the river. We stayed in the river for hours each day. Deers were every where and beautiful to see. Overall rating 9 out of a 10.
We had a family girls trip and we had a wonderful time. Plenty of room in the cabin for 8 people. We loved the fishing and rafting on the river. The hot tub was very nice and roomy! The cabin everything we needed to cook, games and lots of space on the front porch. We will definitely go back there again!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with our family! We really enjoyed the large screened in porch. We could open the door and let the little ones play outside without having to worry. The older kids especially enjoyed the tubes that were provided. The cabin couldn't be located in a better spot; right on the river on a private road. Traffic was not a concern while at the fire pit and river with the little ones. We did venture out a couple times to go horseback riding and gem mining. It was just the right balance of relaxation and activities. My kids are already planning next year's trip!!
The setup is just what a family or group would need. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and the river. We had a couple of minor issues with appliances but the owners were wonderful about it. Our stay was not not interrupted at all. The house is spacious and decorated like a river retreat should be. I would highly recommend staying here. I would mention the roads are pretty tight so it takes awhile to get around. My only minor issues, and I use that word loosely, is the house sleeps 9. It would have been nice to have a few more towels. Also they brought 6 brand new tubes to use on the river which was great, but we had 8 people so we had to end up renting to allow the whole group to go. We plan to revisit and hope to make it a family tradition!
Ellijay, Georgia is a quaint town with several antique shops and restaurants. Outdoor activities abound--including hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, taking a ride on the scenic railway, fishing and tubing. Carter's Lake is just a few miles away for water skiing, wake boarding, and fishing. With so many activities in Coosawattee River Resort, you probably will not want to leave!
