Overview

About the property

Large Riverfront Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-18)

Fully furnished cabin is ready for you to start enjoying the minute you arrive.

You’ll soon find yourself mesmerized by the rushing waters of Mountaintown Creek from the fantastic views out of all the large windows and porches. The river is so clean and crystal clear that you can see the Rainbow Trout swim right up to the rocky shore.

Luxury sleeping accommodations include TWO MASTER SUITES with oversized King Beds. Both Master bedrooms have access to private decks, one with a stacked stone outdoor fireplace and the other with a cozy swing for two. In the Terrace Level you’ll have a plush Queen bed with an amazing view of the river.

The Large Kids Room has three sets of high quality bunk beds (6 Twins) and a Full-sized futon which connects to the game room. Upstairs in the loft are two Queen sized futons.

This lodge offers the ultimate in luxury accommodations and provides room to comfortably sleep up to 18 people. If you need more room, we also have rentals nearby that can be added.

The kitchen is spacious and complete with everything you need to feed your family and friends. Granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, make you feel right at home.

There are two main dining areas – inside you will find a farmhouse table that comfortably seats eight people (card table stored in the basement adds another 4 people) and right outside the kitchen door is a 6 person patio dining set with terrific river views.

Want to sit back and relax? No worries, there is a porch swing on the private porch on the third floor, reclining chairs on the main porch and a large porch off the main floor master with an outdoor fireplace and enough seating area for your whole group.

Mountain Town Creek is ranked as one of the best Trout Streams in North Georgia. Enjoy all this as you and your family roasts marshmallows around the large OUTDOOR FIRE PIT area overlooking the river.

When it’s time to wind down, relax in the seven-person HOT TUB, play a few games on the FOOSBALL table or a game of billiards on pool table with the family.

The Coosawattee River Resort is located just a few miles off Hwy 515 outside of Ellijay and East Ellijay, Georgia in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. The Resort provides the perfect weekend vacation getaway and is just a short drive from Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Murphy, NC. The Coosawattee River Resort is a 5,500+ acre nature preserve that leisurely meanders along two beautiful rivers - Coosawattee River and Mountaintown Creek. The Coosawattee River Resort is a great community offering an extra layer of safety and convenience from the 24/7 gated security.

The word “Ellijay” is an Anglicized form of a Cherokee word, perhaps meaning "place of green things" or "many waters." This would make a lot of sense considering this is the place where the Ellijay and Cartecay Rivers meet forming the Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee and Mountaintown come together and flow into Carter’s Lake: A gorgeous recreational lake developed by the Corps of Engineers. This region abounds with wildlife, including deer, wild turkeys, bears, eagles, and hawks. The Rivers are a favorite for trout fishermen or feel free to our stocked fishing pond within the resort.

There are plenty of things to do in the area, including all kinds of lake and river water sports, hiking, mountain biking, antique and crafts shopping, scenic drives, and golf. Our Georgia mountain cabin offers privacy, peace and quiet, and cool mountain breezes, and is just minutes from the shops and restaurants in Ellijay and the Blue Ridge area.

Come spend a weekend or longer in our log cabin and feel the cares of everyday life slip away. We hope you will make 'Trout Trap” River Lodge your second home in the mountains and will return again and again. Please bookmark our site and come back often. Thank you for considering us and we hope to see you soon!

About Amy Padgett

We are a family of six from Milton, GA with three boys and a girl. We have another house for rent in Coosawattee, the Tricky Trout Lodge - VRBO #583476. We have just purchased two additional river houses that are side by side giving you your own private compound. When we are finished remodeling, we will introduce "The Twins"

Why Amy Padgett chose Northwest High Country

We love coming to Ellijay and the fact that it is so close to our house in Milton is a big bonus for us. Our kids love playing in the water, riding dirt bikes and fishing. It is so nice to be in the mountains and on the water in a place that feels so remote but you are less than 15 minutes from shops, restaurants, and grocery stores.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My BIG Latin Family & I had the pleasure of staying at Trout Trap Lodge a few weeks ago. The house was perfect for all 16 of us. Quiet and peaceful nestled up in the mountains. That being said there is very little (if any at all) cellular reception. The house does have WIFI but slow when 16 are trying to use it at the same time. For us, it was a nice change from the everyday city life. The house is in Ellijay, a small but very friendly town, about 2 hrs from Atlanta. The Blue Ridge Mountains are close by and there is plenty to do. Horse Back Ridding, White water rafting, Tubing, Blue Ridge Railway and Zip Line to name a few.

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most amazing cabin! My sister and I hauled 9 children to this cabin last summer. They are still asking to go back! The cabin is very large with a downstairs bunk room. There is room for at least 16. The furnishings are excellent. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and appliances. The bathrooms are gorgeous. The jacuzzi added an extra perk! It's very comfortable, very spacious, and a place we will definitely return to. The creek in front of the property is amazing and occupied our children the entire week. The local town of Ellijay is so full of kind people and all of the things you would need. There is a bowling ally in Ellijay, and the resort has plenty of activities on site as well. There just happened to be a fair going on at the time we went which was perfect for the kids. There is tubing close by as well as an old timey drive in theater with double featured movies. Amazing trip all the way around! This is a vacation we will always cherish!

Great for a Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the lodge for for a large group and it was perfect! We arrived right as a snow storm hit and it made the weekend wonderful. Luckily the owners advised us of the upcoming conditions so we were prepared and stocked up on food for the weekend. We didn't chance driving back to town during the weekend but the lodge had everything we needed. We loved playing in the snow and the boys loved fishing in the river. The outdoor fireplace was great to provide cover but still give us the outdoor feel and warmth. Our "dreaded" end of vacation drive home wasn't bad at all as it was only 1.5 hours away from our homes in Atlanta. Our whole group still hasn't stopped talking about the trip!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Rented the trout trap lodge for a guys weekend trip and loved it! The lodge itself had all the amenities one could need for a fun weekend, and plenty of beds for a large group. Only 10 minute drive back into town if you need any supplies, yet you still get the benefit of a remote cabin on the river.

Owner is very responsive to questions and available by phone should you have any questions about the area. Plenty of firewood for the fire pit along with all the chairs you might need.

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, and will definitely rent again!

Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review John. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your trip. It is a nice place to get away and it does feel like you are in the middle of the woods. Luckily you are only 10-15 minutes from shopping and restaurants. See you next time!

Best Family Together Time Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best gathering place for our large family, 16! Loved the sound of the river. It was the perfect spot to spend time together. Room for everyone to have a place to relax. I so enjoyed the fireplace on the second level. The kids caught beautiful trout. We spent the evenings by the fire pit roasting hot dogs and making S'mores. The town of Ellijay was quite charming. Amy was sure to have everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. One of the few vacations I have been on that I didn't miss home. I would love to go back again!! Tomorrow!

Relaxing and Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We truly had the best time at your cabin. Everyone was so impressed with all the porches, beds, nice decorations, and so close to the river! Many people said that it was one of the best cabin experiences they have had and want to come back again next year. Thank you for making the rental so easy and for providing so many things (firewood, life jackets, games, etc). It was a relaxing and fun weekend. We will be contacting you in the future to rent it again!
