Reserve your time now to relax and unwind at Coldwater Cabin.....an awesome location, breathtaking scenery and relaxed rustic lodging. No other place compares to this charming cabin and magnificent setting.

Located on Mountaintown Creek in the scenic area of the north Georgia mountains, Coldwater Cabin offers a warm, inviting retreat from the daily hustle and bustle of life. Coldwater is a rustic, casual, cozy mountain cabin nestled in a tranquil, serene setting. Just over an hour north of Atlanta, you can quickly be transported from the grind of city life, to the natural beauty and serenity of mountain life.

Enjoy the peacefulness and complete privacy of Coldwater as there is only one cabin down river that is barely in sight. Surrounded by trees and the river...you have perfect seclusion. All you will hear and see at this beautiful cabin is the water rolling over the rocks in the creek and humming birds feeding on the deck. This unique, charming and cheerful cabin is a welcome haven of rest and the perfect get away for a 'slower pace.' Coldwater Cabin sleeps up to four people comfortably with a main level bedroom, upper level master loft and side loft, two full baths with shower/tub combination, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living area with fireplace.

Handsome tongue and groove paneling throughout, wide pine plank flooring, rough sawn pine cabinetry, open exposed beam structure and rock fireplace are yours to enjoy in Coldwater. Lots of natural light fills this haven creating a warm, cheerful,inviting atmosphere. Coldwater Cabin is furnished in rustic mountain décor that is comfortable, relaxed and full of charm. Enjoy the comfort of solid hickory, cedar and pine furniture with mountain and river fabrics...decor that naturally matches the surroundings and environment. Feels like home, but doesn't look like home! All this is wrapped up in a setting where you can experience and enjoy the natural wonders and beauty of mountain life.

Wake to the sounds of a gentle rain falling on the metal roof or birds chirping outside the window. Enjoy the start of the day with a cup of coffee on the deck listening to the rushing waters of the creek as the sun begins to shine. Take off the chill by sitting by the soft porch lights and pot belly stove---which is perfect for roasting marshmallows at night.

Fish in famous Mountaintown Creek or cool off in the refreshing waters while tubing in front of the cabin. This captivating cabin is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. At night, relax on the deck by the fire while enjoying some fantastic star gazing or warm up inside by the rock fireplace where you are ushered into an incredible nights sleep.

At Coldwater Cabin, you can enjoy long walks in the woods, fishing or playing in the creek or relaxing on the deck while enjoying the naturally beautiful surroundings. How about just rocking the time away on the deck overlooking the bubbling creek? If adventure is what you are looking for, it is easily found at Coldwater. Perhaps you want to raft or kayak. There are several rivers and creeks at your disposal as well as beautiful Carter's Lake.

In the quaint town of Ellijay, you can stroll the square and shop for treasures at the many local antique and craft shops. Take a break and dine at one of the many different restaurants Ellijay has to offer. The slower pace is a refreshing step back from the busyness of life.

Whatever it is you want or need, you can have it all at Coldwater Cabin. We invite you to come splash the time away at this unique and special cabin....and make memories that will last a lifetime!

About Brian and Cindy Saunders

Our family began enjoying the Ellijay area in 1999 and purchased Coldwater Cabin in 2000. Fun filled weekends, creek adventures and fires at night while listening to the noisy water have created many special memories for our family that will last a lifetime. We are happy to share this same opportunity and experience with you.

Brian and Cindy Saunders purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Brian and Cindy Saunders chose Northwest High Country

The attraction to Coldwater Cabin is the special escape it offers us from our busy lives in the city. We love the natural surroundings and sound of moving water as well as the convenient access to so many different nearby activities such as Carter's Lake. The short drive (just over an hour) from Atlanta to Coldwater is an added bonus.

What makes this cabin unique

Coldwater is nestled in a very private area and surrounded by the sounds of nature and the noisy water of Mountaintown Creek moving over rocks. This setting along with a warm, rustic cabin decor is the perfect combination. At the cabin, we feel you are transported away from it all.....to a place of peacefulness, relaxation and beauty that is hard to find in a metropolitan area.

Can't go wrong with this one!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great! As far as I'm concerned this cabin has everything you want in a mountain house. It is right on the Mountaintown Creek in a secluded/private area. The creek/river is great for trout fishing and also playing in-we discovered a rope swing over the river we all loved! There are other cabins around but far enough away that during the day you can't see them and only at night can you see the faintest of lights from the cabin on the left. The cabin itself is set up perfectly with a great deck for grilling out and watching the kids play down below in the river. We loved this place and would certainly stay again.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Secluded, quiet, beautiful area. I liked the idea of electric fireplace - no mess to clean up! The only drawback (for us) was the stairs to get up to the cabin. But that's only because of our health issues (back problems for me/DH not in the best of health). My fault - should have checked/confirmed about entry to the cabin. I assumed (wrongly!) that there would be a lower door to enter. Be careful with the downstairs shower! It gets very hot; adjust a 1/4" at a time turn to get very hot water. Overall, if we didn't have issue with stairs, we would definitely be back. If you're looking for a place to get away - you can't miss with this cabin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your experience at Coldwater Cabin! We are with you on that electric fireplace. No mess and provides great warmth. It is definitely a trek of stairs up to the cabin. We are glad you were able to manage it, even with your issues, and enjoy a stay with us. You were definitely troopers, too with the rain from Irma the first two days of your visit! We appreciate having you as our guest and hope you enjoy a lovely autumn season. Thank you again for staying with us!

Perfectly peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Coldwater Cabin for four days and found it to be comfortable, very nicely decorated, and peaceful. The sound of the river directly in front of the cabin made for some enjoyable front porch evenings.

While I probably wouldn't recommend this cabin for persons who have trouble with stairs, I would highly recommend it for anyone else who would like to escape to a mountain retreat. What a nice place!

Not sure they will compare with the eclipse. We appreciate having guests like you!

Peaceful location on the river

  • 5 of 5

Great location on the river. Cabin is very cozy and is everything reflected on website. This was our second stay at Coldwater Creek. Teenage son loved having his own space in the loft. Conveniently located but yet secluded. Have already recommended to friends.
