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.

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
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.
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.
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!
Beautiful cabin and setting and Laura was a joy to work with! You won't be disappointed with this cabin!
We had a fabulous stay with our family and friends. River Music is spacious, clean and well equipped. Privately situated off the road, and once inside, you feel there is no one around for miles. This was my 3rd visit to River Music, appropriately named for the sound of the rushing river below, music to my ears! The owner provided so many nice touches. First of all, the beds! It’s like sleeping at a Marriott, what is your secret to making the most comfortable bed ever?! There was plenty of wood provided for the fire pit and fireplace. The kitchen was well equipped, and when I forgot to bring sugar, it was a pleasant surprise to see a bag in the cabinet. The supply of flip flops and towels for the hot tub is also a nice touch. Laura gave us a warm and friendly welcome and made sure that we had everything we needed for a long weekend away from the madness. We will return for another idyllic stay in this beautiful place!
We enjoyed every minute!
Worse experience I have had! Please never stay at this property. It seems fun and then they pick you a part.
I have to say that I have stayed in many places in my life and this was the worst experiences ever.
We recently stayed here for a 3 day weekend. We thought we had a great time and we're looking forward to staying again. We thought we left the house in great shape. We have always stayed at much bigger properties and everyone thought our cleanings were exceptional.
Even though, this house already has a cleaning fee, it seemed like they were trying to find any excuse to keep the damage fee.
At the end of our trip, we put all of our trash in the trash bags and they went into the two large trash cans. We later found out in an email that they rummaged through our trash. They commented that they found beer bottles; then told us they "did not permit partying" because it's a "family environment". We are a family of 4. It is perfectly normal for 2 adults to enjoy alcohol over a 3 day weekend. It's very concerning to me that they went through the the trash, which is an invasion of privacy.
Another big issue was the hot tub. When we got there, we did not see a remote for the hut tub. Never saw one. Never used one. We explained we didn't know there was one and never used one. But they insisted we did and charged us $150.00 for it.
So if you are looking for a place that will invade your privacy and charge for mistakes mostly the cleaning service
did, then this is your place. I will never stay here again. This is a nice area to stay and I know there are plenty of nicer places to stay. I will be visiting those in the future.
I hope this review helps you make a better decision on where to stay.
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!!!
This cabin is a must if you are looking for a peaceful getaway. The kids had a blast in the river & the cabin itself was clean and inviting. Laura was a pleasure to work with. Would absolutely chose river music again!
