Ellijay chalet description

Fall and winter is a beautiful time of year at Hawk’s Nest Overlook. Our house is located in Coosawattee River Resort (CRR) which is a 6500 acre gated resort in some of most beautiful mountains in North Georgia. This house has one of the best views in the resort. You have a view of both the Coosawattee River and long range views of the mountains from 2 decks that span the back of the house. Large windows allow natural light and scenic views from inside or outside. Out on the decks you can hear the Coosawattee River as it flows over the rapids and meanders through the valleys. Cozy up to the fireplace (gas logs) in the main room or build a fire in the outside fire pit for relaxing and enjoying. This is a great place for a couple to enjoy and relax with a jacuzzi tub in the spacious master bath, or for entertaining family or friends with sleeping for up to eight people. The back yard is fenced in for those who want to bring their pets and allow them to enjoy the outside.
The house is decorated with a lot of thought put into the mountain experience. Vaulted wood ceilings and a floor to ceiling rock fireplace make this an ideal getaway. The master bedroom on the upper floor has a queen bed and the large master bath with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is a loft with a queen bed. The main floor has a full bath and a bedroom with a twin and a fold out roll away bed. The basement has an area for entertaining a family or a kids getaway. It has a queen, and bunks with a full, a twin, and a half bath. The basement opens out to a full length deck that has as spectacular a view as the main deck.
To stay connected(or you don’t have to) there is WiFi and cable television. There is also a good selection of family friendly movies for small kids and adults.
Hawk's Nest is also easy to get to, with all paved roads.
The Coosawattee River flows through the resort for 11 miles before it forms the headwaters of Carters Lake. There are many amenities to take advantage of in the resort during the cooler months including an indoor heated Olympic sized pool, a well-equipped gym, game room, tennis courts, and basketball courts. There are several parks along the Coosawattee River that you can also take advantage of.
So you have confidence in who you are dealing with, please visit our other property and read our reviews (Eagle Creek Hideaway, VRBO 428220). Thanks for looking.

- Ellijay is the historic county seat of Gilmer County, and the Apple Capital of Georgia. Mountain vistas, cold clear rivers, antique shops, and biking. It is the host of the Apple festival each October. Ellijay has the convenience of a super Walmart, Ingles, Food Lion, etc. Dining is also good with Longhorns, Ruby Tuesdays, Shanes Rib Shack, to name a few. There is also almost any fast food restaurant you could ask for such as McDonalds, Wendy's, Sonic, Subway, Hardees, Taco Bell, etc. There are also many local restaurants which are favorites to locals and visitors alike. Ellijay is a good central location for all the activities you look for in a mountain vacation. Carters Lakes is only 15-20 minutes down the road with recreation areas for fishing boating, picnicking, playgrounds and swimming. Blue Ridge, Dahlonega, and Amicalola Falls State park are a short distance away. Come and get lost in paradise!...moreless

Beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. Being close to the deer and turkeys was such an awesome thing. We will definitely be back. Can't wait to tell our friends about it. Such a beautiful display of God's handwork. Thanks for a great place.

The chalet and breathtaking views were exactly as described on the internet. The chalet was clean and had everything we needed except our food and personal items. We did not check into any of the resort facilities, but did so enjoy the deer and other wildlife right at our door! The owner was readily available when we had a question. We hope to go back in the spring and maybe fall.

Owner response: Thanks Rick, glad you enjoyed the view and the wildlife, it is the highlights of the house. We do try to provide everything you need for a great vacation. Looking forward to your return.
All I can say is Thank You! What a awesome, well needed extended weekend for our family. We could of stayed another week easy! The home is absoluetly great! Full of an inviting warmth and everything we could of needed. With the great veiws from the back decks we could of been content to simply sit there from sun up to sun down drinking in the tranquility of it all. But its close proximity to Fort Mtn State Park and the Cohutta Wilderness with all of their trails called... We loved driving through the resort, it was like driving through a wild safari only with deer and turkey... Again ! Thank you for opening the Hawk's Nest to us and for all of your hospitality. We look forward to our next extended weekend.

Owner response: Thanks Doug, glad you and your family had a great time. The decks and the views are amazing. I have spent many hours just soaking it in myself. With the changing of the seasons, the views are always changing. It is a broad display of God's amazing creation. Thanks again and hope you visit with us again soon.
Another Amazing Adventure!!!
Another Amazing Adventure!!!
Brian and Gina have succeeded once again in making a getaway weekend GREAT! We love your new cabin. It is beautiful, immaculate and provided every comfort possible. There was nothing that we might have needed to use that you had not already thought of providing....even down to the flashlight at the code box for families arriving after dark. The mornings were gorgeous with the clouds lingering over the river below...picture perfect! We were able to see deer and wild turkey from the back deck as well as enjoy the Fall foliage. The Apple Festival was so much fun followed by a night of s'mores at the fire pit. Thanks again for being the best hosts! We look forward to staying with you again.

These places mean a lot to us. Not just your average rental properties. We try to convey that to our guests. Making your experience a great one is our number one priority. See you again soon.
the cabin was beautiful and clean! My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My two boys especially loved to play in the creek and river right down the street. The cabin was well stocked with anything you might need. The owners were very friendly and helpful throughput our stay.We would definitely love to come back.

About the owner: We are Gina and Brian and our regular home(when we are not in Ellijay) is in Fayetteville, Ga. We have a daughter Amber (21) and a son Michael (19).
Why the Owner Chose Ellijay:
We love the North Georgia area and particularly the Ellijay area due to the beauty and convenience. It is the closest to metro Atlanta as you can get and still be in the mountains, and in a different world.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We fell in love with this house when we first saw it. How could we pass up this beautiful property with it amazing views. We thought it would be a great property to share. It is near our other rental property and is in Coosawattee River resort with all the amenities you could ask for.
