Falling Leaf Retreat - Cozy Cabin in beautiful Ellijay area

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Great Ellijay Cabin Rental - 3br plus loft with lots to do and explore nearby. Enjoy tubing on the Coosawatee, mountain biking at one of the many local trails, fishing at Carter's Lake or just chilling at the cabin.

The cabin is cozy and perfect for a couple using only the master and common areas on the main floor, but with 2 more bedrooms and a loft upstairs, there's plenty of space if you need it!

A full rocking chair front porch, as well as a smaller back porch for grilling and/or watching the sun rise, help you enjoy the peace of the outdoors in north Georgia.

Coosawattee River Resort:

Coosawattee River Resort (as the name suggests) is on the Coosawattee River in Ellijay, Georgia just an hour and a half north of Atlanta. Walking down the road a bit, you can hear the river as it meanders toward Carter's Lake. Deer, numerous birds and even turkey can be seen on every walk.

The community has various common areas and miles and miles of gravel roads great for walking. At the Eagle Mountain entrance, the quaint General Store and the animal refuge add to the country flair.

But never fear, you won't be too far from civilization if you discover there's something you forgot or if you decide to head to town for dinner. A quick 10 minute drive and you'll be in East Ellijay.

The community also does tubing trips from the general store and there are several access points to the river.

About Christa

An international traveller from Atlanta who has lived overseas on multiple occassions. My style of travel doesn't involve hotels as I like to meet the locals and stay in 'real' homes/flats.

Now, I have a cabin/vacation home of my own that I would like to share with others. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Why Christa chose Northwest High Country

Love the Ellijay area which is only an hour and a half north of Atlanta. The area has lots to offer with Carter's Lake, the Coosawattee and Cartecay Rivers, the Apple festival, numerous trails and much more.

Beautiful Cabin and Great location -2nd stay

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Falling Leaf for another spring break trip to the mountains! We like the location and amenities, and the cabin is well stocked and maintained. Our boys love the hot tub and the rec center. We built a fire, went kayaking with Cartecay River Experience, and watched movies and played games. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

When we walked into the cabin we were taken back by the beautiful kitchen and living room. The cabin had all of the amenities to make you feel at home. We are already planning our return trip to Falling Leaf Retreat.

Great place to stay for a get-a-way.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was comfortable, clean, spacious, and just what we were looking for in a weekend retreat to see the colors of the fall leaves. While just about 10-15 minutes away from downtown Ellijay, the cabin was far enough away to feel the spaciousness of the mountains, but close enough to have reasonably quick access to shops and restaurants. It was a thumbs up from each of us who stayed there.

Well kept, fun place to spend a long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here at falling leaf! The cabin is very well kept, had everything we needed in the way of kitchen and laundry supplies, games ,and movies. The recreation center is a short drive down the road and we had a great time playing basketball, putt putt and pool and air hockey. They have a big indoor pool and workout room too, but we didn't use that. There is a place you can tube, in season, close to the resort. The hot tub was wonderful too..clean and worked well. There are 3 bedrooms all a generous size, with full size beds and a loft with a nice fouton that converts to a bed. The area is nice and quiet and it's a short drive to grocery stores and resturants. Christa is very responsive and great to work with.

Car: necessary

Rentals no longer come with access to Coosawatee River Resort Amenities. Unfortunately, the association has decided to SEVERELY limit guest access to amenities and it is no longer possible to offer access to guests.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $75
Refundable damage deposit $125

VRBO does not allow an additional set fee for parties over 4. However, it takes the cleaner an extra hour when there are additional linens to wash. Thus, I reserve the right to retain $25 from the refundable deposit for additional cleaning costs. Using the deposit funds is more accurate as I can charge the additional amount only when it is charged to me rather than charging an additional per night rate for larger parties.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
