Ellijay cabin description

In addition to Hot Tub and Grill Porch, Guests Love our Picnic Area, Ping Pong Table, Gas Grill, Indoor fireplace, and VIEWS!!! They Rave about how Well Appointed, Meticulously Kept, Clean, and Comfortable we Keep Our Cabin .... and They Come Back Often Bringing Friends and Relatives to our Growing Family of Guests! The secret--OWNER oversight..not an impersonal and unattached rental agency. Our promise to you... This cabin rental will exceed expectations! Look at each picture to get a better idea of our cabin features and sleeping quarters.

Need handicap access? Check out our smaller rental at awcabins.com or Call / Text 813-453-4680 to inquire or reserve now. True Rental by Owner--go to our North GA Cabin personal Website for more information. Search the web or Google AWC Rentals for additional photos and North Georgia Mountains area information.

Scenically located and spacious inside, this North Georgia cabin is complete with hot tub, firepit/picnic area, two screened porches, and wrap-around deck! You won't want to leave your rocking chair as you listen to the sound of the noisy Coosawattee River both morning and night! Reserve Now!

As you enter 'Our Guest House', you'll be glad that it is PET FREE and SMOKE FREE. This mountain home, located in a gated and nature community, overlooks the rushing Coosawattee River, best known for tubing, recreational kayaking, canoeing and fishing. The resort backs up to the Cohutta Wilderness and borders pristine Carter's Lake.

Thinking about listening to music on a Saturday afternoon at the newly opened Cartecay Winery, or visiting Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge or one of the many Apple Houses on Hwy 52? You may prefer visiting one of the upscale antique galleries in the historic downtown district or making pottery while sipping on your favorite wine. We enjoy the hiking and kayaking, but some come for mountain biking and fishing. Whatever you are looking for, there is something for everyone!

Are you celebrating an anniversary, birthday, retirement, cancer-free, graduation, multi-generation gathering, or do you just want to get away and relax? Regardless of what you are looking for, the North Georgia Mountains have it and your time there will be perfect when you book our rusticly luxurious cabin for your next getaway!

Looking for a thoughtful and perfect gift? Purchase a gift certificate for a long weekend at the cabin, or with the purchase of a week at the cabin we'll send you a FREE book to present with your certificate (while supplies last) titled 'I'd Rather Be at the Cabin -- Cozy Thoughts to Warm Your Soul' with paintings by Debbie Crabtree.

Our Guest House is close to Amicalola Falls, Highway 52 Scenic Byway, Ocoee or Nantahala whitewater rafting, apple orchards and more! What makes this area worth visiting? The outdoors! Ellijay is the mountain biking capital of Georgia! The Appalachian Trailhead, scenic overlooks, waterfall hikes, antique shoppes in quaint town squares . . . all near to your very own mountain getaway! Within minutes you'll be exploring--whether by foot, horseback riding, bike or car!

Another reason to visit the area is to join those who come to celebrate holidays and harvests at the local festivals. Be sure to come in October for the Apple Festival right here in Gilmer County.

If you have 'business' in Atlanta,like cheering on the Atlanta Braves or Falcons, attending a NASCAR race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, or if you're playing tourist, you'll find the Patriotic Museum, Georgia Aquarium, Six Flags, CNN Studio,the Capitol, the Georgia World Congress Center, North Atlanta Trade Center and Stone Mountain. Your comfy vacation cabin is within driving distance! Our guests tell us,'Ellijay is convenient and has everything we want in a vacation.'

Not only convenient to the Atlanta airport, Our Guest House is only 90 minutes east of the Chattanooga airport. It is a central meeting place for people gathering from South Carolina to Alabama or Tennessee to North Florida. People have visited from Louisiana,Arkansas,Florida, etc.

Want to relax and SEE the area? The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway loads just 19 miles away. You'll want to return to the downtown historic shoppes year after year. And yes, the local restaurants are quite accommodating and the food choices are as good as in any big city. Check out the locals favorite, Charlies Italian Restaurant. They just built and opened at a new location on the 4 lane just north of McDonalds. Forget something? Super Walmart, Ingles, and more are all nearby.

One hour north of Atlanta or east of Chattanooga, your North Georgia High Country vacation awaits! Come join our guests who tell us this is their family's favorite year round getaway!

Do you work on weekends? Ask about our 'Mid-Week Savings'! You'll want to make this an annual vacation.
