Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4 adults in the two King beds & 3 kids in bunk bed)

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/No Pet 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?

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!

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is our new favorite getaway place! So private & peaceful. Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the River Music Cabin! Such a gorgeous and peaceful place to stay. The cabin was beautiful. It was very clean and the owners were extremely hospitable in all the things the cabin came equpit with and the things there for us to use. We loved our time at the river and enjoyed the amazing view from the cabin. The atmosphere is so peaceful. We will always cherish the memories made here. This is certainly a place we will revisit again...soon!

Outstanding experience.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I grew up in the country and stay in cabins frequently. River Music was definitely one of the nicer cabins we have experienced.

Located in a gated resort community that is well kept, the cabin offers some of the better amenities such as a nice kitchen and very large master bathroom upstairs. The rushing water of the Cootawassee is a great backdrop during your stay. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice cabin.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is part of a much larger group of homes and cabins on the Coosawatee river. Although you are certainly not on top of one another, you are aware that you have neighbors. Access is through a security gate only, which requires you to stop by a security hut, buzz a remote attendant, tell them your first and last name and the lot number you're going to each time you enter. Sometimes you have to wait in line to get in. But not often. If you need to come and go frequently, this can be a burden. The roads in this community are thankfully paved, but they are narrow and very winding. It felt like a slow roller coaster ride each time we came and went.

The cabin itself was clean, well-maintained, and generally very pleasant. You can certainly see the river from the back deck, and hear it from wherever you are in the cabin, but access to it is down a very steep, long set of wooden stairs that remind you how out of shape you are when you climb back up. We went down once and back up once and then decided the trip down wasn't worth a second try. Not when you can see the river just fine from the back deck. During the summertime however, I would imagine it would be harder to see the river through the trees. We came in March and could see clearly through the trees as they had no leaves yet. We also saw a lovely herd of deer walking through the steep backyard. It was very pleasant to watch them. The cabin also has a very nice real wood burning fireplace which is a nice change from the typical flip a switch gas only style fireplace in so many cabins these days. The cabin also has a very nice hot tub, although we never got a chance to use it.

Although we didn't find any good hiking trails that were marked in the immediate vicinity of the cabin, there are certainly no shortage of them in the Ellijay area and only a short drive away. On the whole, I think the cabin is a very nice one and I recommend it.

Owner's Response: There are cabins nearby but we love that our cabin can't be seen from the road at all. And when you are on the back screened porch, or in the hot tub, or behind the cabin, or down at the rivers edge, you see nothing but trees and wildlife, and rushing waters! No homes up, down, or across the river because we back up to Corps of Engineer property that is protected. Thats so special to us and rare in a gated resort. Thanks for staying!

Beautiful, cozy place!

  • 5 of 5

Laura was a wonderful, helpful host- and made sure that we had everything we needed.

The place was really wonderful- perfect for me and my three nieces to have a fun getaway weekend together. I could hear the river from my bedroom- and it was so peaceful! The place has a great kitchen with everything you need, a gas grill, a hot tub, a pool table, lots of board games, etc. We went in February, and enjoyed the coziness of the house and the area. It looks like it would be fabulous in the summertime too! We would definitely come back- for a longer stay! Thank you!

Beautiful riverside cabin

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well appointed and fully stocked cabin. Beautiful scenery. Right on the river. Perfect for a peaceful and relaxing family vacation. Had several deer sightings in back yard. Comfortable beds. Laura, the owner, is a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive and helpful. Would definitely recommend this cabin.
