About Jennifer Elwood
Our family consists of two Atlanta area professionals with three children who keep us very busy. One of our favorite things to do is plan family vacations. One thing we know to be true in raising children is that the days are long and the years are short. We are doing our best to fully enjoy this season!
Jennifer Elwood purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Jennifer Elwood chose Ellijay
The North Georgia mountains offers our family the respite we need to recharge. Our riverfront property is ideally suited for both relaxation and recreation. We enjoy spending time at Shady River Retreat and venturing out to Blue Ridge for shopping and entertainment.
What makes this Cabin unique
You will love the swing on the over sized screened in porch and the wide river frontage. The fire pit is a great place for yummy smores and evening chats!

We really loved Shady River Retreat. We floated down the river everyday we were there. The tubes that were provided were wonderful. My kids really enjoyed fishing in the river and seeing all the deer. There is a Walmart close by for any supplies you may need why you are there. Be sure to read the guest book for some great tips.
The cabin was beautiful as well as the view. It was picture perfect. My grandkids enjoyed having their own area. We enjoyed watching people kayaking down the river as well as the people tubing. Memories made.
Beautiful cabin with amazing views. We enjoyed this weekend so much! Both boys fished up and down the river and at the pond while the dogs followed behind. Only downer of the trip was the hot tub not working properly (only 2 jets).
Fabulous Getaway with views of a Mountain River
I can't say enough good things about our host and the cabin. Our host, was great with communication and answered all of my questions. The cabin was well equipped with all we needed to be comfortable for the week. And to top it off the cabin sits on a mountain river that gives the most peaceful sound while you rest and relax on the huge screened porch.
When not at the cabin, we did some great waterfall hikes, visited some fun vineyards and enjoyed shopping in the town of Blue Ridge.
If you love the feel of the mountains, you can't find a better cabin to relax and unwind.... screen porch with a hanging swing, grilling area, river for tubing or kayaking, fire pit, hot tub, fully equipped kitchen ... what more does one need??
Very clean, roomy, remote, quiet
Very nice. Needed a few more cooking utensils ie... bowls, pots, sharper knives. We will be coming back. Left the porch doors open at night while we slept listening to the river. Absolutely amazing!!!
We had a wonderful time staying at Shady River Retreat. The home was well equipped with items that we either forgot or didn't think of. The only items I would replace would be the frying pans with teflon since they were scratched, but that is really the least of my concerns. Everything was tidy and clean and my guests were very impressed with how much space this home had. Thank you for sharing your home!!
