About the property

3 Bedroom 3 Bath with 200 feet of loud mountain river frontage

Located directly on the Coosawattee River, you'll love the calming sound of the river both day and night. The last 1/2 mile of roads to the cabin are gravel, so even though you're only an hour or so north of the city, you'll feel a world away from life's 'normal' stress.

There is a large covered porch with ceiling fans and plenty of seating, including a log swing. Enjoy meals on the huge screened in porch while being entertained by the abundant wildlife both in the wooded yard and in the river. It's not uncommon to see deer playing in the river or crossing through the yard. Let your relaxation continue as you build your own campfire by the river. Terrace level patio features a 6-person hot tub - perfect way to end an evening if you choose.

Main floor features a living room with a gas fireplace and a 55-inch TV. Kitchen with plenty of counter space and stainless steel appliances is stocked with all the culinary tools you'll need - coffee maker, pots and pans, cutlery, bottle opener, etc. Large Master bedroom features King log bed with high-quality mattress for a perfect night's sleep. Master Bath has whirlpool bath and separate shower.

Upper level has loft area and second Master bedroom which also has King size log bed. Walk out of this bedroom onto a small private covered porch.

Terrace level is the 'fun' zone, featuring a large seating area with 55 inch TV, board games, puzzles and books. There is also a full-sized ping pong table (with paddles and balls) if you're feeling competitive. Bedroom with 2 Twin log beds connects to full bathroom with washer/dryer.

My dream cabin/home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautiful, comfortable and cozy cabin! We originally wanted to go tour the area, but we were so happy with the cabin and the property we stayed there all weekend. The porch{es} are amazing and the back yard, at the rivers edge, made it relaxing and exciting to just enjoy. Thank you Mandy and Doug for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. We hope to come again!!

-Side note - we left a bag of clothes there and they were fantastic in helping us get those back! Made the weekend one to remember!

Ideal getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Perfect for our group of five adults. Great view of the river which was high fast and roaring. Kitchen was equipped with all we needed and fully up to date. The place was totally clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. Outdoor fire pit by the river was great. Access to Ellijay and scenic areas i.e.Carters Lake Amicalola Falls Gibbs Gardens was not difficult. Great place to go any time of year. Less than two hours from Atlanta.

Beautiful property. Clean cabin. Wonderful amenities and extras!

  • 5 of 5

My family (husband and three kids ages 10,8, &4) stayed for a mountain retreat over our spring break. The weather was cold but beautiful and we had a wonderful time. Mandy left all the necessities for roasting marshmallows and making s’mores and some our favorite moments were spent right there on the water with a fire. Our kids could have happily stayed playing at the cabin everyday. We did venture out for a hike and walked around downtown blue ridge which was great. The property had a detailed binder full of activities. We hope to come back again anddo more of them and to explore these mountains in a summer setting too. We will seek out rivers echo first!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful cabin. The furnishings were nice, everything was clean, and we were very comfortable during our stay. The back yard has a fire pit that sits right next to the river, which creates a very peaceful experience. There was a large basement with a ping-pong table and games for family entertainment. We also noticed there were kayaks and tubes available in the backyard. We hope to visit again and bring the kids. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing get away or family fun.

Great for R&R

  • 5 of 5

Rained half our trip but did not matter. Great cabin with a great lot. Although it rained the porch provided relaxing rain drops on a Tin roof while the roaring river relaxed the most tense nerves. Had a blast. Plenty of space for a large group and the lot was perfect for easy access to a fire by the River side.
