Hawk's Nest has some of the best views in the resort. Perched high up on the side of the mountain, you have a view of both the Coosawattee River and long range views of the mountains from 2 decks that span the back of the house. It is located in Coosawattee River Resort, which is a 6500 acre gated resort in some of most beautiful mountains in North Georgia. Everybody says that the pictures don't do justice when it comes to showing the view.

Large windows allow natural light and scenic views from inside or outside. Out on the decks you can hear the Coosawattee River as it flows over the rapids and meanders through the valleys.

This is a great place for a couple to enjoy and relax with a jacuzzi tub in the spacious master bath, or for entertaining family or friends with sleeping for up to eight people. The back yard is fenced in for those who want to bring their pets and allow them to enjoy the outside.

Building a fire in the outside fire pit is great for relaxing and enjoying. You can make smores and grill hotdogs while making lasting memories.

The house is decorated with a lot of thought put into the mountain experience. Vaulted wood ceilings and a floor to ceiling rock fireplace make this an ideal getaway. The master bedroom on the upper floor has a queen bed and a large master bath with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is a loft with a queen bed. The main floor has a full bath and a bedroom with a twin and a fold out roll away bed. The basement has an area for entertaining a family or a kids getaway. It has a queen, and bunks with a full, a twin, and a half bath. The basement opens out to a full length deck that has as spectacular a view as the main deck.

To stay connected(or you don’t have to) there is WiFi and cable TV on 3 flat screens. There is also a good selection of family friendly movies for small kids and adults.

Hawk's Nest is also easy to get to, with all paved roads.

The Coosawattee River flows through the resort for 11 miles before it forms the headwaters of Carters Lake. There are many amenities to take advantage of while vacationing in the resort. There is an indoor heated Olympic sized pool, a outdoor Olympic sized pool with a kiddie wading pool, and a smaller outdoor pool. There is a well-equipped gym, game room, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Several parks along the Coosawattee River have picnic tables and playgrounds.

In the summer you can take a tubing trip down the Coosawattee (and tube past the house) with the resorts tubing company.

Thanks for looking.

About Gina Hancock

We are Gina and Brian and our regular home(when we are not in Ellijay) is in Fayetteville, Ga. We have a daughter Amber (22) and a son Michael (20).

Why Gina Hancock chose Northwest High Country

We love the North Georgia area and particularly the Ellijay area due to the beauty and convenience. It is the closest to metro Atlanta as you can get and still be in the mountains, and in a different world.

What makes this chalet unique

We fell in love with this house when we first saw it. How could we pass up this beautiful property with it amazing views. We thought it would be a great property to share. It is near our other rental property and is in Coosawattee River resort with all the amenities you could ask for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. Being close to the deer and turkeys was such an awesome thing. We will definitely be back. Can't wait to tell our friends about it. Such a beautiful display of God's handwork. Thanks for a great place.

Great house! Great deck and view!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home. Easily would sleep 8. Nice fire pit area on the side for the family to enjoy. The deer are not shy, as we saw many every day around the house. We enjoyed our weekend very much.

What a Veiw!

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough about the veiw over looking the Coosawattee river. We usually book a cabin 2x a year for the last couple of years and the veiw here was definitely one of the best. If the weather had been nicer, would've loved to just leave the doors open and listen to the river all day. Cabin was complete with everything needed for a good stay. The indoor pool was a hit with our young kids in mid winter and the staff at the rec center was very friendly. Owners of this cabin were extremely helpful and with notes everywhere so there were no questions about anything. This cabin could sleep alot of folks. We didnt bring our dog but the back did have a fenced in yard but was very steep and would be fine for dogs but too steep for small kids (under 4). Good value for this cabin because this cabin didn eat you up with fees. Other cabins may be cheaper per night but they might hit you with the gate fee, cleaning fee, and processing fee and all kinds of other charges. Good deal for the price here

Nice home and a great view

  • 4 of 5

The view is one of the best we've enjoyed in our years of renting properties. We also enjoyed long walks on a gravel road just behind the property above the river. We also were able to sneak away and enjoy several meals and adventures due to the great location. Nice stay!

Great place for a "staycation."

  • 4 of 5

The property is well kept and has everything you could possibly need. Very private with spectacular views. We stayed in the house the majority of the time due to the weather and cooked almost every meal. It was very comfortable and there were plenty of movies, books and games to keep our 5 year old entertained.

The property sits on the edge of a hill so there is not much of a yard for kids or small dogs but the view from the back deck is unobstructed and beautiful.

Had a GREAT time!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Hawks Nest Overlook home was beautiful, comfortable, clean, and had the most spectacular view we've seen. We enjoyed having our morning coffee on the balcony and really had some quality family time there. Can't wait to go back!

Ellijay is the historic county seat of Gilmer County, and the Apple Capital of Georgia. Mountain vistas, cold clear rivers, antique shops, and biking. It is the host of the Apple festival each October. Ellijay has the convenience of a super Walmart, Ingles, Food Lion, etc. Dining is also good with Longhorns, Ruby Tuesdays, Shanes Rib Shack, to name a few. There is also almost any fast food restaurant you could ask for such as McDonalds, Wendy's, Sonic, Subway, Hardees, Taco Bell, etc. There are also many local restaurants which are favorites to locals and visitors alike. Ellijay is a good central location for all the activities you look for in a mountain vacation. Carters Lakes is only 15-20 minutes down the road with recreation areas for fishing boating, picnicking, playgrounds and swimming. Blue Ridge, Dahlonega, and Amicalola Falls State park are a short distance away. Come and get lost in paradise!
