About Clay Carver

Clay and Janet Carver- owners and renters for over 10 years. It is fun to have our own place in Ellijay where we always relax and feel like we truly get away from it all--- but its only an hour plus from Atlanta. We love going into downtown Ellijay to shop and eat. Our daughters have enjoyed the cabin at every age. Tubing is a blast in the summer but winter is fun with the fire and hot tub. We hope you enjoy it too!

Clay Carver purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Clay Carver chose Ellijay

We rented the cabin next door (from VRBO)- and fell in love with the area. River Edge cabin is less than an hour from our house and we have enjoyed it immensely with family and friends. We love tubing and hot tubbing and the different relaxing atmosphere of Ellijay and being on a river. The kids have invited many friends over the years who just love it. Perfect for a girls' weekend- no one wants to leave and they always ask if we rent it out- now we do! Have had Thanksgiving there as well as Mother's Day celebrations and family reunions. Good guys' getaway with golfing in Ellijay, hiking, tubing and also football and grilling. It is a fun relaxing easy change of place and pace.

What makes this cabin unique

Being right on the Coosawattee River in a beautiful peaceful gated community is very special and unique. Guests can tube to the deck stairs and be home- then drive just a few miles to go get the car. Another key benefit is the easy drive to and from our cabin- some roads in mountainous areas can be dangerous or way far back- ours is easy to get to. If it's wintertime- outdoor firepit and sitting by the river in blankets is a great time to visit and just talk. The cabin itself is decorated in 'mountain style'. Another unique benefit is the many decks- in front, upstairs, screened porch and out by the river- to read, visit etc. The motif of the cabin is all fish, moose, bear and everyone loves it- all wood floors and walls give the cabin the fresh mountain smell. The property is also flat from the road to the river so it's great for kids and adults alike- lots of room outside and in. There are great restaurants (even Starbucks) within 5 miles or less- a very cute downtown Ellijay- with shopping, antiquing and wine tasting. For the outdoorsy type- there is Fort Mountain, Carters Lake, Lake Blue Ridge, Amicolola Falls, Cartecay River_ all within 30 minutes. Golf and tennis also. Blue Ridge, GA is right up the road and has a larger downtown and the Blue Ridge Train trip which a lot of people enjoy. Lots and lots to do if you plan ahead or you can just do nothing (which is what we usually do!) We usually cook great meals and just chill after tubing- play frisbee and make s'mores. For those who like wine tasting- we enjoy Chateau Meichtry and Cartecay Vineyards- 6 miles east from downtown Ellijay.

Great location. Cosey cabin with plenty of cooking supplies. All you need to bring is food and enjoy a peaceful vacation. The sound of the rain on the metal roof was an added bonus. We will definitely rent again.

wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was well furnished, in a great location, and we enjoyed our stay. Owner had some Christmas decorations up in the house and when I told him we were bringing a small Christmas tree, he had a tree skirt waiting for us when we arrived. I highly recommend this property and owner. L. K, The Villages, FL

A Hidden Jewel in North Georgia!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I spent one of the best Thanksgiving Holidays at this cabin in Ellijay, GA. The pictures are great, but being there in person is breath taking. If you like peace and quiet, this is your place. Close to awesome hiking and when the weather is warmer, great opportunities for water activities. The cabin is set to make you feel right at home. Cooked every meal in the cabin and loved every minute being together. Yes, even cooked my Thanksgiving Turkey and the trimmings and the kitchen was prepared. Great cabin for large family or Grand Parents who would like a weekend with the grand kids. One other feature not advertised is this cabin is in a gated community. Very Safe! Look forward to our next visit. By the way, my wife called the Large backyard a "Fairy Tale Backyard". It is just beautiful, Period!

Great family trip!

This was our first time renting a cabin and visiting the area. We couldn’t have found a better place! Great location, beautiful view,peaceful! Our children (10,11 & 13) loved the tree swing and spent hours on it and were thrilled to see deer everywhere! We would definitely recommend this cabin and hope to visit again!

Beautiful creek view and cozy cabin! Perfect for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin this past weekend! It is close to downtown and also to several vineyards and apple orchards we enjoy visiting! The house was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed as we cooked all weekend. If you are new to staying in Ellijay, this house is a wonderful option since it is in a gated community and not far from anything you would want to do here. Definitely recommend for a family getaway!

A more rugged walk to a very pretty waterfall. Amicolola Falls is a pretty drive and about 45 min. and is fun with the beautiful falls- a hiking trail up the mountain or 600 + steps up the falls!! A delicious buffet at the top awaits if you can make it! Carter's Lake is very close with day use areas and a marina with rental boats. You are very close to Walmart, grocery store, Starbucks, Ruby Tuesday, Longhorn, etc, etc. Can go white water rafting in Blue Ridge or in Ellijay- places downtown will have info!
