About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Welcome to River's Bend where you can say good bye to stress and hello to tranquility! Our home is located on a three acre lot directly on the beautiful Coosawattee River in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Leave the hustle and bustle of your everyday life to come and relax in the beauty of God's creation. Play and fish in the river by day, sing campfire songs around the fire pit under the stars and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the river just outside your door. We know you will love it as much as we do!

There is something for everyone at River's Bend! Outside, you can fish, swim or tube in the river (tubes provided), play a round of horseshoes, roast marshmallows or hot dogs around the fire pit, or relax in the six person hot tub. Inside, you can try your hand at a game of pool, air hockey, ping pong, or cards/board games down in the daylight basement. In the great room you can watch TV or a DVD or curl up with a good book by the fireplace. Upstairs in the loft, you can steal away for some quiet time reading or solving jigsaw puzzles.

There is plenty of room for everyone too! On the main level, are two bedrooms and a full bath. The 'River Room' is complete with a queen-sized bed and has french doors leading out to a patio overlooking the river. The 'Bear Room' is furnished with a rustic pine queen-sized bedroom suite with a lodge/bear décor. Upstairs, the huge master suite has a king-size bed and walk-in closet. It also has french doors leading to a private balcony overlooking the river. The master bath is outfitted with two sinks, a jetted tub and a separate shower. All bedrooms have cable TV. In the daylight basement, next to the game room is what we call the 'kids den/bunk room'. It is the perfect place for the kids to relax/sleep, with a microfiber sofa and a futon and two sets of sturdy, solid pine bunk-beds. This room is complete with cable TV, DVD player and DVD library of kid-appropriate videos. There is a full bath adjacent to this room.

Additional sleeping accommodations are available on two futons in the large loft, providing sleeping arrangements for a total of 14 people. The great room is where everyone gathers with a wide open living, dining, and kitchen area. The living room has two full-size sofas situated around a 55 inch LCD Smart HDTV and a stacked stone fireplace with gas logs. The kitchen is fully stocked and is very nicely appointed with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The gorgeous imported dining table has seating for eight. Two additional persons can dine at the adjacent island/bar. Or you may choose to dine al fresco out on one of the three covered patios listening to the sounds of the river!

Often, we find we can enjoy our stay at River's Bend without ever leaving the house. But there is plenty to do within the neighborhood and nearby. The neighborhood has three pools, tennis courts, and a fishing pond. Nearby, you can rent a boat at the marinas on Carter's Lake or Lake Blue Ridge for fishing, skiing, etc. Horseback riding, white-water rafting, hiking, mountain biking are also available within driving distance. The towns of Ellijay and Blue Ridge have several quaint antique shops and some 'chain' stores and several options for dining.

As you can see, River's Bend is the perfect location to spend a long weekend or a week with your extended family or friends. So try it out for a truly special time. You'll find out why we hate to leave life at the River's Bend!

About Debbie Graves

We are native Floridians keeping busy with our three beautiful children and escaping the Florida heat to head to the mountain river every chance we get.

Debbie Graves purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Debbie Graves chose Ellijay

Location, location, location! The sounds of the noisy river are soothing to the soul! And Ellijay is a much shorter drive from Florida than other mountain locations.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to watch the deer in our own yard-can't get that in the city. Love to fish and tube in the river all day. Take day trips to Carter's lake and sporting clay shooting. But by far the best thing to do - RELAX with family and friends.

We have stayed many places, but this has to be the most accommodating home yet! You can tell the owners of this home have thought of everything you will need for your stay. Great beds, well stocked kitchen, comfortable sitting areas, GREAT AC in master bedroom, fabulous porch sitting, good water pressure... and that's just the inside! So many activities for the kids and adults alike! Movies, game room, horseshoes, tubes for the river, fire pit, great place on the river for fishing and playing! We had a great weekend! If you are considering this home for a large group or multiple families, this is it! We did not want to leave and we hope to return!

Wonderful week with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the property. The drive way is a bit tricky, but after a time or two it was easily manageable in my Suburban. Cabin was clean as was the property. We went with our friends and their children and we all had a great time. We tubed, fished, and did a lot of porch rocking. Absolute relaxation! Thank you for sharing your property with us!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at River's Bend! The driveway is all bark and no bite, but can be intimidating at first. :) We agree that it is absolute relaxation! Thanks for the kind review! God Bless!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had our first vacation in 3 years. A family celebration for my husband's kidney transplant in November 2016. We were looking for a relaxing location to get away. We definitely found it at River Bend Cabin. The pictures do the cabin no justice it's even more beautiful than you can imagine. The drive way is definitely a little scary the first time, but you can do it. Then its gets easy after that. The deer and wildlife were very present throughout the entire day. The river is GREAT! A little hard to see through the trees (the only suggestion would be to clear the trees a little) but definitely can hear it clearly at the house. We had fun tubing everyday and listening to the other tubers. It's about a 30 min float from the launch location to the house. The game room was the best. Lots of laughs and fun were had on this vacation. We have stayed in many cabins in the past and this is by far one of the best we have stayed at. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
