Overview

North Georgia Mountains Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 7 in beds including 3 people in both bunk beds)

Welcome to ''River Music''! Enjoy the noisy rapids of the beautiful Coosawattee River rushing below from the screened in porches. Rock away your worries in the comfortable glider rockers. Do you need to de-stress? This is the place to relax, unwind, and make wonderful memories!

''River Music'' cabin is beautifully decorated with new and luxurious rustic decor. Our Non-Smoking cabin has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Sleep peacefully in the two handmade King size log beds made by a local Ellijay craftsman. In the bunk room, even the full over twin bunk beds are handcrafted out of wood logs. It's like climbing a tree to get in bed! Our favorite room? A very large screened in porch with private gorgeous views of the river and Corps of Engineer property. Not another cabin in sight! Enjoy paved roads all the way to the driveway and a carport to keep dry carrying luggage, groceries, etc.

Further Details: Our cabin is on the Coosawattee River which flows into beautiful Carter's Lake. Head down our railroad tie stairs with new handrail to the river and experience the true beauty of the waters. In the summer, bring and tie your river tubes to the trees and float in place. Now that's relaxing! The river is so much fun to play in, swim in, skip rocks in, fish in, etc. There is even a creek that feeds into the river. The fresh air is amazing and definitely takes your breath away. Beautiful! The hot tub is the perfect place to soak away your cares while listening to the river. Want to hang out inside the cabin? Enjoy free WIFI, flat screen tv's, a Connelly pool table, video games, board games, movies, books, and more!

About Laura Thompson

We are a family of four that loves the mountains & have always rented river cabins every year in Ellijay, GA. We love tubing, fishing, mountain biking, and just relaxing too. When we found this river cabin, we knew it was meant for us! 'River Music' cabin is now our favorite! We are very proud and excited to share it with you. Welcome to the river!

Laura Thompson purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Laura Thompson chose North Georgia Mountains

We knew this property was amazing the first time we stepped on the screened porch. Gorgeous views of the river and trees. No other cabins to look at. So private and peaceful. We fell in love immediately. We named the property River Music due to the amazing sounds of the Coosawattee River rushing below.

What makes this cabin unique

The property is so peaceful and relaxing. We back up to Corps of Engineer property so no cabins to look at, only river, rocks, wildlife and beauty! Paved driveway installed as well and paved roads to the beginning of the driveway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have stayed at River Music about a half dozen times now - and each time if more fun and more relaxing than the last. Almost a second home to us, we really cherish our time there. Leaving is tough, and we miss being so close to the river!

Best cabin ever!

  • 5 of 5

River Music was the best cabin we have stayed in Ellijay! The cabin was so nice and clean. The beds were comfortable and the river was so much fun to play in. Laura, the owner, was extremely easy and nice to communicate with and they had a lot of extras in the basement for guests to enjoy their stay. Thank you Laura for opening your cabin to us! We can't wait to come back!!!

Perfect stay! Loved relaxing and listening to the river!

  • 5 of 5

Would love to come back for a longer visit! The area and house were both beautiful! We wanted a few days to relax before a wedding we were attending close to Atlanta. The house had everything we needed. Even water shoes for playing in the river and when we went tubing! We loved tubing down the river also (that was thru the resort there). The house was very clean, which I appreciate cause I am somewhat of a clean freak! Beds were comfy also. Laura was amazing to work with and responded very quickly to emails. I have no complaints! Wonderful and peaceful family stay!

Amenities and relaxation galore!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at many VRBO cabins before, my experience with this particular cabin stands apart in several ways. This was our families first foray into a river cabin as opposed to a mountain view cabin. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the river. We absolutely loved opening the door or window of the master bedroom and allowing the sound of the river to put us to sleep. The river also provided an outlet for the kids to explore and skip rocks and for me to do a 1 mile tubing adventure that ended at the backyard. it was so relaxing to sit in the gliders on the back porch and read or just watch the squirrels play in the forest below.

Laura, the owner, has thought of everything. The hot tub was clean and well appointed, there were lots of things to use for enjoyment, (fishing poles, life preservers, water shoes, etc), and the kitchen was very well equipped with K cups and creamers included. These were prime examples of little details that that go a long way toward making the renter feel appreciated and cared for. A surprise for us (with little kids) was the recreation center that Laura graciously makes available for renters. This includes miniature golf, an indoor pool and a video game arcade. Not something you run into at every cabin. There was so much to do that we did not get to it all. We will be back to enjoy River Music again!!!!

Peaceful weekend

We had a wonderful time in this cute cabin.

Kids enjoyed the hot-tub and the pool table. Sound of the river was really relaxing while reading on the deck.
