Cozy cabin 15 feet from water's edge on the Cartecay River has wide screened-in deck, massive wood-burning rock fireplace and all wood floors. 2 Bedroom, 1 full bath log home sleeps 6 in 1 queen, 2 twin trundle beds. Cable TV, wireless internet, central heat & air bring modern amenities to a place that harkens back to a by-gone era, waiting for you by the river.
Prepare your favorite vacation meals in our fully equipped kitchen or grill up your specialties to serve al fresco on the deck or at the kitchen table. Relax on the deck and watch the river run over rocks just beyond the screen door. Recline in the master bedroom to the sound and view of the gently shoaling water. Wade on in to cool off in summer. Cast a line from the bank, just outside the deck. Relax by the fireplace and hear the crackle of wood logs in winter. Head out to the fire ring to roast hotdogs or toast marshmallows.
Venture out for a hike on the Appalachian Trail, a mountain bike adventure nearby, a ride down the river in a canoe, kayak or inner tube, or a visit to an Ellijay orchard. Or just stay put, mesmerized by the sight and sound of the river.

The scenic Cartecay River flows through rural North Georgia east of the charming small town of Ellijay. The Cartecay draws kayakers and canoeists, anglers, and summer time 'tubers' to her mostly calm waters. En route to the cabin, guests often stop in Ellijay's 'Apple Alley' to buy fresh apples, peaches, and other seasonal produce. The Georgia Apple Festival, 2nd and 3rd weekends in October, is one of the Southeast's largest craft fairs, attracting thousands of tourists both weekends. Fall tourists also enjoy scenic drives 'leaf looking' in the Georgia mountains. Our cabin is located about 20 minutes from the Southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain and is close to 3 game management areas where hunters seek deer, turkey, wild hogs and small game in season. Amicalola Falls State Park, about 20 minutes away, showcases one of the southeast's highest waterfalls in a well-maintained trail system. Numerous hiking and mountain bike trails give the outdoor person both challenging and easy perspectives on the Georgia mountains. Carter's Lake, Fort Mountain State Park, and Lake Blue Ridge are all about a half-hour away. Unique restaurants, antique and craft shops, and traditional stores for all your vacation needs are just 15 minutes away in Ellijay. The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad stops in Blue Ridge, a vibrant mountain town 20 minutes up Ga. 515.
About: We're an outdoor family whose idea of a great vacation revolves around water, woods and trails. This little log cabin gets us right on the river, where we enjoy wading, fishing, paddling or just lying out on a rock and soaking up the sun. In winter, the babbling water outside and crackling of the logs in the fireplace create a cozy setting for a good read or a great conversation!
Why Ellijay: Here, we get the feel of a more relaxing era. It is a place where the timeless flow of the water seems to wash away the stresses of the modern world and every day problems get lost in the woods.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The cabin is in a rural, wooded environment, not in a mini-city of nearby river homes with noisy occupants. It's truly a rustic getaway by the river.
