About Sarah Hamilton and Ian Hamilton

Hi, my name is Sarah Hamilton. Our family recently purchased a cabin in Ellijay, Georgia, a beautiful town located in the North Georgia mountains. We as a family have been upgrading and cleaning the cabin to make it the best cabin around. Living only an hour and a half from the cabin really comes in handy for quick trips up both for work and pleasure.

Sarah Hamilton and Ian Hamilton purchased this lodge in 2010

Why Sarah Hamilton and Ian Hamilton chose North Georgia Mountains

Our cabin is located in the gated community of Coosawatte River Resort, this allows for a safe and enjoyable environment. Within the community are a vast array of amenities from pools to gyms to put-put, the resort really offers every amenity one could ever need. The cabin itself is located on a wide river with many beautiful rapids, which allows for fun kayaking, canoe and tube trips. Along with a beautiful river view, there are amazing mountain views!

What makes this lodge unique

This cabin has a multitude of unique benefits offered. They include: canoes and tubes, a basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard and horse shoe court, a seven person hot tub, three spacious bedrooms each with a full bath, two living rooms, a game room with Foosball, ping pong and pool, and high definition flat screen televisions.

We also supply Tubes, Kayaks and Canoes and life jackets for your use for your stay with us so you can enjoy the most out of our river! Many renter go and get put in up the river at one of the parks and float back down to our back yard! Or you can just hang and play right in the back yard!

On top of that, we have another "sister cabin" owned and operated by the same people. If you are looking to have a larger gathering , book both of our properties easily.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our 4 grandsons down for a mini vacation. It was absolutely amazing. The kids had such an amazing time. So much to do at the cabin and surrounding areas (hiking, gold pan mining and more). Our grandsons were worn out every night. Accommodations were amazing. We will definitely be staying here again.

Our stay at Riverstone Lodge was more than ideal. We enjoyed the beautiful view overlooking the river and couldn't help but bask at the picturesque scenery. We had a blast with all the amenities. There was enough fun and space for everyone! We will definitely be coming back and look forward to our next visit!

Great Cabin Find!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at cabins yearly for last 21 years.... and this is really a top notch cabin. The Kitchen - Dinning - Living room area was as appealing as we have ever stayed in. We need to go back during summer months.

Something for everyone in the family

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin! Thankful each and every family member enjoyed their stay. From just sitting and taking in the beauty of nature, indoor or outdoor gaming, tv watching, there was something for everyone.

Appreciate the full kitchen, all the supplies for the outdoor activities, and the easy & quick response from Ian and Sarah whenever we had questions regarding our cabin stay.

We look forward to coming back to experience summer at the cabin:)

This place has it all!

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited to come to this place for the weekend and we weren't disappointed. It was great, so much to do, everything is there so we didn't need to go anywhere else. We wen't on the kayaks, canoe, kids played basketball, volleyball, badminton. We sat on the swinging bed. It was the best and can't wait to plan our next trip!

Just what our family needed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cozy cabin the first week of August! From start to finish the process was a breeze! Ian texted and talked with me anytime I had any questions. We decided to come a day earlier and Ian had it all ready for us since it was available, BIG thanks for that!!! We had two families with not a single concern the whole trip! The cabin is very spacious, clean, beautiful, and really everything we wanted in a mountain cabin vacation! The river was refreshing, we tubed down it, kayaked around in it, sat in it, sat around it, loved listening to it, and even played with the neighbor's dog in it, Lucy! She LOVES fetching sticks! My daughter is still missing Lucy, sobs when talking about her and the cabin, and plans to write Lucy a letter! We loved the hills, deer and beautiful homes in this gated community (that does not feel like a gated community at all). DEER EVERYWHERE! We saw 33 just in one trip to the store! Let me say that was a HUGE score with my little girl! You do not have to leave the cabin as all our kids were completely entertained but we did venture off a few times. We visited a local farm that had the best ice cream, cheese, crackers, and such sweet beautiful animals. They really made us feel so welcome there and we were treated with such kindness. Mountain Valley Farm! You could walk around and enjoy the animals and this wasn't something they charged for....say what??? We weren't use to that! haha! Oh and now that we have a love for deer we visited Build and Ark Animal Rescue and played with the baby's!!! We took a little trip to Dahlonega, GA (adorable little town) and had a GREAT experience at the Consolidated Gold Mine (took the tour, panned for gold & gems). On the way home we visited Amicalola Falls in Dawsonville, GA, wow beautiful!!! We also had lunch on top of the world at Amicalola Falls Lodge, WHAT......A....VIEW! Coming home to our beautiful cabin never got old! We definitely recommend Riverstone Lodge no doubt about it. We!!!

Owner's Response: Amanda, thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so happy your family had such a wonderful time. I also appreciate the recommendations for outside activities. We are so pleased your family enjoyed all the wildlife in the community as well as our "neighborhood" dog Lucy, she really is such a sweet dog. We hope you come back to stay with us sometime, we'd love to have y'all back.
