Ellijay cabin description

The Dragonfly on the Cartecay is the perfect romantic getaway or for someone who just wants to get away from it all. Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate in this custom two bedroom hideaway perched above the Cartecay River. The Dragonfly boasts many engagements, honeymoons, and now several return guests on their anniversaries.

Relax in the hot tub overlooking the trees above the Cartecay River, dine alfresco on the porch, roast smores in the fire pit down at the river, fish from the dock, or tube or kayak directly from the cabin. (WE DO NOT PROVIDE TUBES OR KAYAKS. Easily rented nearby at the Cartecay River Experience.)

In the evening, enjoy the custom lighting down to the river or rock on the porch and sip your favorite drink while listening to nature and the sound of the rapids. Don’t forget to wet your fishing line for fresh river trout or bream. You might even spot a river otter.

Guests love the tastefully decorated cabin which includes two bedrooms, two full baths, custom hickory cabinets throughout, fully kitted kitchen with custom lighting and granite countertops. The gas log fireplace awaits a cozy fire and you!

Fall guests stay in the perfect cabin for visiting Ellijay’s best apple houses as they are only a stone’s throw away on highway 52. Year round enjoy the best wines at Cartecay Vineyards, only three miles down the road, where you’ll find delicious local wines and entertainment.

No matter what time of year you visit The Dragonfly, its magical and ideal setting is sure to please.

NOTE- road to the cabin is gravel and easy terrain. No need for special vehicle.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: We are a couple with 3 beautiful West Highland terriers (all rescues). We offer our cabin as dog friendly to responsible pet owners like ourselves. Sorry- no cats. (Please, no smoking anywhere on the property.)

                      Why the Owner Chose Ellijay:
                      This tastefully decorated cabin is the perfect romantic getaway or just getaway! Perched above the Cartecay River you can fish, tube, or kayak. The hot tub is warm and waiting for you OR roast marshmallows over the fire in the stone fire pit at the river's edge. You are a stone's throw from the Cartecay Vineyards and the fabulous apple houses on HWY 52. Perfect location.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Whether you come winter, spring, summer, or fall, this cabin beckons you with lovely mountain laurel and hardwoods to the river. Custom outdoor lighting down to the river and on the dock allow for long lazy evenings. Swing on the many swings on the property and read a good book.
