Ellijay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

The Dragonfly on the Cartecay is the perfect romantic getaway or for someone who just wants to get away from it all. Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate in this custom two bedroom hideaway perched above the Cartecay River. The Dragonfly boasts many engagements, honeymoons, and now several return guests on their anniversaries.

Relax in the hot tub overlooking the trees above the Cartecay River, dine alfresco on the porch, roast smores in the fire pit down at the river, fish from the dock, or tube or kayak directly from the cabin. (WE DO NOT PROVIDE TUBES OR KAYAKS. Easily rented nearby at the Cartecay River Experience.)

In the evening, enjoy the custom lighting down to the river or rock on the porch and sip your favorite drink while listening to nature and the sound of the rapids. Don’t forget to wet your fishing line for fresh river trout or bream. You might even spot a river otter.

Guests love the tastefully decorated cabin which includes two bedrooms, two full baths, custom hickory cabinets throughout, fully kitted kitchen with custom lighting and granite countertops. The gas log fireplace awaits a cozy fire and you!

Fall guests stay in the perfect cabin for visiting Ellijay’s best apple houses as they are only a stone’s throw away on highway 52. Year round enjoy the best wines at Cartecay Vineyards, only three miles down the road, where you’ll find delicious local wines and entertainment.

No matter what time of year you visit The Dragonfly, its magical and ideal setting is sure to please.

NOTE- road to the cabin is gravel and easy terrain. No need for special vehicle.

About Peggy

We are a couple with 3 beautiful West Highland terriers (all rescues). We offer our cabin as dog friendly to responsible pet owners like ourselves. Sorry- no cats. (Please, no smoking anywhere on the property.)

Peggy purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Peggy chose Northwest High Country

This tastefully decorated cabin is the perfect romantic getaway or just getaway! Perched above the Cartecay River you can fish, tube, or kayak. The hot tub is warm and waiting for you OR roast marshmallows over the fire in the stone fire pit at the river's edge. You are a stone's throw from the Cartecay Vineyards and the fabulous apple houses on HWY 52. Perfect location.

What makes this cabin unique

Whether you come winter, spring, summer, or fall, this cabin beckons you with lovely mountain laurel and hardwoods to the river. Custom outdoor lighting down to the river and on the dock allow for long lazy evenings. Swing on the many swings on the property and read a good book.

Amazing Riverside Proposal

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great experience we had at the Dragonfly. The cabin is in immaculate condition with all the amenities and cooking appliances one could imagine. The cabin's property literally backs right up to the river. Riverside they have a porch and a firepit, so you can roast marshmallows and enjoy a quiet night with wine listening to the river pass over the rocks.

Peggy and Darrell went above and beyond, and then beyond that, in preparing the cabin for my surprise proposal weekend. The plan was to arrive to the cabin by canoe and have a big marriage proposal sign on the riverside porch, with a cameraman in a tree and local delicacy basket inside. Peggy and Darrell had to arrange all of this and they did a fantastic job. My then Girlfriend had no idea how I pulled it all off and I couldn't have without Peggy and Darrell's support!

I highly recommend staying at the Dragonfly and my Fiancee and I will be coming back for years to come.

Thanks again,

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Took my girlfriend for a nice relaxing getaway. The cabin was was extremely nice and had everything you need. We enjoyed the Hot tub each night with a fire going right next to us. Each afternoon we enjoyed the deck that sits right on the river! It was such a great spot that this is where I decided to propose to my wonderful girlfriend!! The river, location and lighting of the deck made it such a wonderful place. Peggy was an excellent host and easy to contact with any questions you might have. She even called us the first night to make sure everything was perfect. This place will always be special to us and we can't wait to return!

We really enjoyed staying at the Dragonfly. It is decorated nicely and was so cozy! We enjoyed the hot tub each night while our dogs were safely gated in on the porch with us. Peggy, the owner was really nice and easy to communicate with. She even called to check and make sure that everything was perfect at the cabin. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone, especially people that travel with their furkids!

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved staying at this beautiful cabin. It is a great getaway that is quiet and relaxing. The location makes it easy to get to all of the surrounding towns and Amicalola Falls. The hot tub was perfect at the end of the day. Our dog enjoyed every minute and loved being on the enclosed porch. Peggy was very helpful in the entire process. We had a great time.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin right on the river. The cabin is beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable beds. Wonderful cabin for 1 or 2 couples. Porches are so nice with part being covered & part in the open. Scenery is beautiful. The hot tub was wonderful! We went to a wine tasting & even though it was hot, it was fun! We had a great weekend - only wish we could have one more day. Thanks Peggy for sharing your beautiful cabin! It was such a relaxing weekend!
