Happy New Year 2012
Happy New Year 2012
We spent New Year's weekend with some friends and our 2 dogs at this cabin. We were delighted with the location right on the river in a quiet little valley. Just a few neighbors, not too many, and the moon came out each night while we sat on the hot tub. We spent most of our time in the sunroom, where you can watch the river without sitting out in the cold. Wood-burning stove was another great feature. Very comfortable yet rustic. Spent an afternoon shopping in Blue Ridge and ate dinner at El Rey in Ellijay. We definitely recommend a stay here.

Year Purchased: 2012
About: We are local owners living in Alpharetta, GA. We purchased this cabin as our second home. My wife loves to decorate and make a house a home, and this one is no exception. We love the mountains, and the sound of a river, and this cabin exceeded all of our expectations. We are working professionals who enjoy the mountains and getting away from the day to day, and home away from home/cabin allows us to accomplish this everytime we come up.
We love the North Georgia Mountains and all they have to offer. When we set out to find our second home we had several non-negotiables so to speak in looking for it. 1. It had to be a true log cabin 2. It had to be right on the river 3. It had to be Hand Crafted and Solidly built. 4. It had to be within an hour and a half from Atlanta for ease of access 5. It had to be beautiful 6. It had to make us feel incredible when we were there. Our Log Cabin provided all of these key ingredients, making it the perfect choice for a second home. That is why we named her 'Riverfront Paradise'. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Riverfront Paradise is literally right on the Cartecay River. Built before the law changed to requiring a 50' easement between your cabin and the waters edge, this cabin is right on the river. Fish off of the deck, have a conversation with a kayaker as they paddle by, or just stare at the beauty of the unobstructed river and forest across the way. You are only 3.5 miles to town and everything you will ever need making it incredibly convenient and relaxing.
