Tons of activities and beauty directly on Mountain Towne Creek
About Property Manager
I am a former sailboat Captain and dive instructor, though I worked professionally as an archaeologist prior to trading in work boots for flip flops and hitting the Caribbean and Mediterranean for the next 15 years. I love the rivers and mountains as much as the oceans and sand, so I bought a tranquil cabin in the mountains to enjoy some land lubber time. I still travel abroad frequently, but always enjoy coming back to my river mountain hideaway.
Property Manager purchased this Cabin in 2015

A True Gem
First of all this is the neatest resort area ever! We always go away from it all on vacations and even in a resort you feel truly away from it all. Lots of privacy. Coosawattee is a must stay area. We loved driving around looking for deer. We tubed the Cartecay river. Rented a boat for Carter Lake for the entire day. Swam in the pools. Fished the rivers (caught 2 channel cats and 2 bass). Went hiking. Played giant jenga. Enjoyed the hot tub. Beds sleep amazingly well. The balconies were so nice! Must go to Tumbling Falls. Easy hike with a lot to offer. The downtown area of Ellijay is like a trip to the past. The people are so friendly and the shops and restaurants are wonderful. Definitely eat ice cream downtown. There are a couple of different spots and you’ll not go wrong at any choice. You are not far from the convenience of town. It does take about 10 minutes to get out of the resort from the cabin. There is a pool toward the front entrance and it take about 8 minutes to drive there. There is so much to do. We were at the cabin for a week and still did not see everything within the resort. There is absolutely no way to get bored here. I would not recommend for elderly if they are not active. This place is for those who love nature and do not mind walking up hills. Of course you don’t have to walk hills if you drive everywhere. The trek down to the river at the cabin is steep but worth it. Once at the river, Go to the left and at the bend of the river there is a good fishing hole and swimming spot. Pretty deep. We have a family of four- mom, dad and 2 older teenagers plus our black lab. We were all very sad to leave here. We rarely want to go back to a vacation spot but we would come back here! If you normally go to the Smokey’s - this needs to be your new spot! The owner is amazing and is on top of everything. She was so helpful and even brought our dog a toy! Thanks so much for being such an amazing host and allowing us to stay at your home. Great memories!!
Wonderful location - loved the entire resort. Highly recommend tubing. Plenty of space to spread out - kids really appreciated the downstairs area. Homeowner was great to work with!
Thank you for the kind review! and thank you for treating my home with such care. Come back anytime !
Great Cabin with everything you will ever need - Kids had a blast!
Just like all of the other reviewers this cabin is great! The kids had a ton of fun with all the games, tons of Disney and other VHS/DVD's, arts and crafts, and the hot tub was a huge hit. My dog had plenty of room as well. Two grills (gas/charcoal), plenty of balconies and decks. It rained and was a little too cold for us to tube, but we did wade out in the water some and fished a little.
Overall is what a great cabin with no complaints.
I'm so glad your family had suck a nice time. I do believe your kids may have been the recent contributors to the art wall! I was so glad to see the new additions of their beautiful coloring! Brings a smile to my face and their art will still be up if you come back to visit in the future! Come back anytime!
Absolutely loved the place. Enjoyed the location and the amenities. Laura was great in helping find things to do as well as the directions to the property. She goes above and beyond to be helpful with our stay.
Steven it was a joy hosting you and your family and I’m so glad everyone enjoyed themselves! Thank you for treating my home with such care and respect. Come back any time. I’m sure your girls would love to go tubing when it gets warmer. It’s so much fun!! Take care. Laura.
Great property with all kinds of character, everything you need is there. Fabulous place
Our 3 families spent 4 nights there and had amazing time. Kids loved the hiking and river. We all enjoyed the firepit immensely. Lots of space and privacy. Home has great character and separation for the adults. Wonderful. Even got to meet Eli J the goat. Keep an eye out for her, she is a hoot
Hi Derek. It was great having your 3 families there for New Years. You never would have known there were 11 people staying here considering how clean the place was! Thank you for that!. Thanks also for sharing your amazing pictures at the firepit and with Ellie J. the goat, named by you!! Ha Ha! For those reading, it is a metal garden goat, so no. There is NOT a live goat wandering the property LOL. You guys should consider coming back in the spring or summer to enjoy tubing the river. It's a blast and you guys seem like you would have a blast. Come again soon! Happy New Year!
Wonderful cabin, wonderful hostess! Like a home away from home. Book it! =)
Never in my 2 decades of renting cabins in the north Georgia Mountains have I come across a more gracious hostess than Laura or a better stocked cabin. Witness the true definition of “southern hospitality”. Laura goes above and beyond to make sure her guests are happy, have everything they need & are having a great time. I spent Christmas with my family in this cabin. The traveling from S. Florida 2 days before that was especially heinous & took an extra-long time. After over 12 long hours of stressful driving, pulling up to that cabin was amazing. The fireplace was going, Christmas lights and music on. An instant “happy place”. =) The stress melted away. We noticed on the fireplace that there was a stocking hung for each of us with our names on it & candy canes inside. Our pup even had his own stocking with a package of tennis balls inside! I was told there was a surprise on the upper deck for my boys and to go up there & plug in an extension cord. When I did that, the whole forest behind us twinkled with red & green Christmas lights everywhere! She lit up the whole forest for us! One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Inside, there were chocolates & bottled waters by all the beds. The master suite had a bottle of wine with glasses, and towels folded into swans on the bed. Wonderful & inviting. The cabin itself is clean, cozy & felt instantly like a second home. Don’t need to bring anything but clothes with you. Spices, condiments, kitchen appliances & supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap and anything else you can think of is already there. There’s tons of things to keep busy with; outdoor games, tubes for the river, fire pits close to the house & down by the river, inside games, “rainy day” supplies like nerf guns, coloring books, crafts &more. Comfy beds, plenty of pillows and blankets, fans, even porter crib & baby items. Take a look at the adventure wall pics in the sunroom, they’re pretty awesome. The community is huge & beautiful & offers fun things to do such as a game room, mini golf, indoor pool & more. We saw deer everywhere. Everywhere! A steady parade all day and night right out back to look at. We saw 11 at one time out back on Christmas Eve. Can’t wait to go back & tube this river in the summer! Don’t keep searching after reading this, book this cabin now. I could rant & rave so much more, instead, I’ll leave you with this thought: “Try it. You’ll like it!” Thank you Laura for making our trip & holiday so special.
Lisa, you and your family definitely set the bar pretty high for future guests! Thank you for your detailed and passionate review. It has been a joy getting to know you through your emails, from the time you booked back in September and continuing even past your stay. It was hilarious when you and your boys started your daily countdown to the vacation 3 MONTHS before arrival!! lol. I'm so glad that your Christmas stay was what you had hoped it would be. It means a lot and warms my heart when guests find what they are looking for here. I love Ellijay and my home and want everyone to get as much enjoyment out of it as I do. PLEASE come again this summer! The boys will go crazy with the tubing, hiking, zip lining, white water rafting and ATV trail riding that they can do in the warmer weather. That is of course if those are things they are into. I would guess they are considering the adventurous, fearless, interesting woman they get to call their mom! You all are welcome here anytime!
Oh and Thank you for your awesome gift! It did not go to waste and was thoroughly enjoyed, especially on New Years!
