There is no smoking indoors. I am very sorry, but I can not allow pets due to allergies, carpet and accidents. We also ask that you remove your shoes when entering the carpeted areas. Bring your favorite slippers and some are supplied.

About Sara

I moved to Ellijay from Charleston, S.C. in 1989 when Hurricane Hugo destroyed my home but never looked back. It is so gorgeous up here in the mountains and people only dream of the privacy of this home that sits 30 feet from the bank.

Why Sara chose Ellijay

This property sits on three lots with five private acres and 500 plus feet on the river. You can not see a neighbor from the house.

What makes this cabin unique

The house sits 30 feet from the river bank and overlooks a koi pond with an outdoor burning pit. The geese, ducks and eagles love the river and visit often.

Cozy river cabin

  • 4 of 5

We chose this cabin because it was all on one level which suited the grandparental needs. We found the kitchen well stocked and the cabin was very clean! The gas and wood-burning fireplaces were a big hit for us during the cold weather. The negatives were the dearth of lights in the living room making it difficult to read or do the family puzzle. The dining room was so dark that I bought a candle to help light it and it seemed to double the watts! With the heavy rains, one side of the cabin's lights did not work so that was a bit of an issue for a few days, but once the weather cleared, the circuit board stopped tripping and the issue resolved itself. The owner was so apologetic and tried desperately to help us out over Christmas Eve and Christmas which was no small feat. My kids (and husband) loved the indoor foosball table! One of the bedrooms is not accessible except through either another small bedroom or the master bedroom which was rather inconvenient for privacy's sake. But we made do. The grounds were gorgeous and some day we would love to return to experience a warm weather time with the river's entertainment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and sorry the overhead light with fan was not working for a couple days in two bedrooms. I did have the electrician come out and change the breaker. There were bedside table lights in each room and satellite and tv’s and all plugs working during the couple days. There were electric lanterns and lights on top of the refrigerator. We just installed new dimmers in the dinning room and new fans in the living room so possibly the little slide button next to the switch was not adjusted. I did call Lowes and had extra lights paid for and ready for pick up in case you needed them. Certainly will look forward to your return visit and so happy you stayed at the cabin.

Beautiful, relaxing, exciting, and filled with lasting memories for us . . . This is one of the best vacation homes we have ever rented. This is the second time we have rented this home. It fills every need!!! It is on the waterfront with beautiful views, has a relaxing deck with whirlpool, grill, and a smoker (Green Egg), includes a sunroom for enjoying the waterfront view and watching television in air conditioning or with a fireplace, includes kayaks, inner tubes, etc. It also includes a large kitchen, 5 bed rooms, and a nice size living room. This house will easily accommodate a large family, a group of friends wanting a get-away, or serve the needs of a couple desiring a romance & privacy. It also includes 3 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms, plenty of closet space, a washer and dryer, linens, towels, and plenty of closet space. For those who enjoy television, she has large flat screen TVs through out the house. Additionally, she has a router set-up to support your network access.

Awesome family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Sara's cabin by the river! The setting is perfect for relaxing and enjoying nature. The accommodations were wonderful. Plenty of room for all of us. The beds were very comfortable. We tubed and kayaked the river. It was great to be able to float right up to the bank of the cabin. Would love to stay there again in the future. Thank you, Sara, for allowing us the use of your beautiful property.

Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of thirteen & we all enjoyed ourselves the whole week, but especially the 3 year old and the nine year old. They would have stayed in the river all day if we had let them. They also loved feeding the two ducks that came every day. Sara was really easy to work with & did her best to take care of everything.
