About Ilene Pontillo

Hi. My name is Ilene Pontillo and I reside in South Florida.

I would love for you to enjoy this retreat as much as my other very loyal guests do.

Please call or E-mail me at any time for more information and availability for my beautiful mountain cabin in Ellijay, Georgia.

Ilene Pontillo purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Ilene Pontillo chose Northwest High Country

I chose to purchase property in Ellijay, Georgia in 2007 when my husband and I went on a short weekend trip from a friend's recommendation after he visited Ellijay.

We immediately fell in love with the area- specifically Coosawattee River Resort. After seeing the beauty of the community, the spacious lots, and the fact that it is gated and secured we decided to look no further! The biggest bonus was that we met some of the most wonderful, friendly, helpful people there. It was then that we decided to built our dream cabin. Once built, we felt that this beautiful log cabin should be shared with other wonderful people at very afforadable rates!

Weather you come to relax, shop, work on that book or song you've been dreaming about writing, work out, swim (any time of the year), horseback ride, golf, play tennis, or any number of other things...THIS IS THE PLACE!!!

What makes this cabin unique

Just being able to get away from the stress and craziness of everyday life and relax in what seems like a different world is priceless! This is without a doubt Georgia's best kept secret!

The peace and serenity that you will get from sitting back and enjoying the view, watching the deer, wild turkey, birds, and squirrels while rocking on the front porch and staring at the mountains is just the change that most of us need to clear our minds and be able to enjoy and bond with nature. If swimming is on the agenda, you can visit the clubhouse where you will find an olympic size heated swimming pool in addition to a workout room and game room.

If later you feel like meeting people, getting a bite to eat, or shopping, there are many new stores and restaurants to visit in Ellijay.

Owner's Response: It is my pleasure to share my cabin with lovely people like yourself and your family who treat it like their own. Nothing is more fulfilling than being able to allow people to unwind and take a break from their hectic and sometimes stressful every day lives. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to speaking with you again when you are planning your next trip to Eli's Escape!

Wonderful anniversary weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our time at this cabin in the woods and would recommend staying here. Communication with owner was great, all info was helpful and we had no problem getting in. House is quite a distance from the main gate, you would not want to forget anything and turn around and go back out for a quick trip. Roads are winding and narrow at some points, so at night extreme caution when traveling in, deer on sides of roads grazing. House sits back off gravel road, very quiet, cool cabin style home. Wonderful porches to see the mountain view. We enjoyed morning coffee on master porch. We were not in house much, but felt comfortable and safe. There is no coffee or tea provided and face soap is the only toiletre provided. We did not have this info, so we are letting others know. Need to bring your own! Would be a nice amenity for not much to add or please inform guests that this is not provided, many vrbos do. We did not cook so not sure what was available. Appeared to have a full kitchen of stuff. Cell signal and wifi worked great. Bed is comfortable, shower is great. Some furniture is a little worn, but comfortable. House is clean. We did not use the resort amenities. We only stayed in condo for the morning and to sleep. Not too far to downtown Ellijay and we so enjoyed the Chateau Meichtry for wine tasting and live music.

Morning deer come right up to house and show no fear!

Wonderful Getaway With Family

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this clean, well-maintained property in the gated Coosawatee River Resort. The house was spacious and included modern conveniences, such as WiFi (with excellent signal and bandwidth) and many television channels plus DVD. The porch and deck run all around the house and includes a covered back deck with fans/lights, two picnic tables and a gas grill. The upstairs bedroom also includes its own covered private deck opening to a wonderful mountain view. My family of four saw several deer and a turkey from the deck in the mornings and evenings. We also enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen and playing family games at the large dining room table. Our children enjoyed the outdoor pool nearby and also swam in the indoor pool and played basketball at the resort's rec center. My son, who runs cross country for his school, was able to get his daily training runs on a trail at a public park nearby. We also enjoyed several nearby apple houses, which were stocked with fresh peaches, vegetables, and many sweet baked goods. The only negative aspect of the trip was when it was time to go - I could have easily stayed another week in this relaxing hide-away in the north Georgia mountains. We will be recommending this to family and friends and look forward to returning. The owner provided great communication and had wonderful directions regarding the property.

We would highly recommend this cabin to others.We enjoyed the wildlife the deer would come right up to the back pourch and we would feed them apples by dropping them down below.We also enjoyed the recreational center that was in the resort for swimming in the pool or taking a dip in the river.I would recommend picking up a flyer of the resort in order to know the different places to go.The cabin was right on as for as being clean and having everything we needed for our stay.Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your cabin it was a wonderful vacation.

Fantastic vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We sadly packed up and left this gorgeous cabin on Friday...we're looking for dates to return currently! Our family was blown away with the scenery, serenity and warmth of the cabin. It was exactly what our family needed in a weeks vacation. The weather was perfect, cool at night and pleasant during the day. As Floridians, we rarely see deer off our balcony or enjoy winding mountain roads. Daily visits from woodland creatures thrilled our children and made grilling on the spacious porch even more fun. All amenities were perfect and better than described. Cleanliness was top notch too! Again, we were super bummed to drive away this past Friday, but thankful we found this gem and plan to return as soon as possible!!

We were a family with a teenager, pre-teen and an 11 week old baby!! It was perfect for all of us!

cozy anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

my husband of 34 years and i enjoyed a quiet and cozy anniversary weekend at Eli's Escape. even though it was february, the cabin was warm, comfortable and inviting. it was exactly as pictured, clean and well maintained. we hiked amicolola state park to the falls on our first day, ate at Charlie's Italian Restaurant by recommendation and it was even better than described. we explored historic ellijay and blue ridge on our second day. there were many deer throughout the community and three in our yard the last morning. the weekend went by too quickly and before we knew, it was time to go home. we would heartily recommend and will definitely be back.
