Introducing "A River Runs Through It" - a spectacular 6 bedroom property that sleeps up to 14 guests located in the foothills of the Chattahoochee National Forest. A stay at this 4,000 square foot lodge will be the most unique and amazing experience of your life!
The home is situated in a private setting and is built over a scenic mountain stream (Think of Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater House on a smaller scale). Constructed in 1960, this property holds a lot of historic value, from the 100 year old water wheel which greets you as you pull up the driveway to the walls and ceilings built with wood from old buildings being torn down in the mid 1900's (black walnut, cherry, ash, and cedar).
This mountain getaway has been completely remodeled and features all NEW upscale furnishings. A list of the amenities and bedroom configurations are as follows:

About the owner: My husband and I are both realtors and we live in the suburbs of Atlanta. We have 2 kids in elementary school.
Why the Owner Chose Ellijay: We chose to buy in Ellijay because of how close it is to Atlanta and our home. We wanted a vacation home in the mountains to be able to escape to have a peaceful, relaxing weekend. This house captured us from the moment we first saw it. My husband spent over 3 months living here as he remodeled it.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge: Sometimes we visit with just ourselves...the kids will play in the creek all day as my husband and I sit under the shade of the pine trees in the front yard. We like to invite family and friends, and the home is so big we never feel cramped or crowded. Most of our guests are families/friends with children and many of them bring grandparents. Our home is very suitable for those who can't walk up or down stairs. All the living spaces are on the main level and there is only one small step down as you walk in the front door. Plus, there is a bed/bath on the main perfect for this type of guest. We just think the home is so unique and special with the water flowing underneath! It's a different experience, and we are glad to share it with our guests!
