Named after the still that was on the island in the middle of the river many years ago, Moonshine Rapids offers you a peaceful, relaxing, luxurious retreat right on the Cartecay River in Ellijay.
As you walk in you are immediately greeted with an amazing mix of old charm and modern convenience. Antique tin roof highlights the kitchen ceiling, milking stool bar chairs and a refrigerator with barn doors set the ambience. The kitchen is equipped with stainless appliances, separate food prep and washing sinks, everything you need for your gourmet meal.
The large great room features a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, flat screen TV on the mantle, extra large comfy couches and of course a Baby Grand piano. Finishing off the main floor is a queen bedroom, a bath with a stone shower and deck with a gas grill overlooking the river below. A spiral staircase takes you up to the king suite. Here you will find a small private balcony, TV and another bath with a stone shower. Heading down stairs you pass the game room with an Air Hockey table and another large deck overlooking the island in the river. Passing through the French doors you enter another large queen bedroom with a TV. A wall of windows faces the river, a private bath with yet another huge stone shower and the laundry facilities are located there as well. On this same level is a large hot tub overlooking the river below.
At the bottom of the steps to the river is a dock sitting directly on the Cartecay. Kick back, relax, listen to the river go by or drop a line and try your luck. Looking for a little adventure? Take your inner tube and jump on in. This is the perfect place to enter the river. Just above the fun 'S' turn rapid and then the mighty 'Blackberry Falls' kids of all ages will enjoy the short float to the take out at the covered bridge. The best part??? it is just a short walk back home to do it again.
New to the Ellijay area? So much to see and do from outdoor adventures to private waterfalls and fine dining. Ask for a copy of our activity sheet. You are sure to make the best Mountain Memories at Moonshine Rapids.
