About Amy Padgett

We are a family of 6 from Milton, GA with 3 boys and a girl. We have another house in Coosawattee, the Trout Trap Lodge.

Amy Padgett purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Amy Padgett chose Northwest High Country

We love the lot that this home is on. It is so amazing. It is totally private and secluded and the large rocks and natural scenery just can't be beat.

What makes this cabin unique

We love coming to Ellijay and the fact that it is so close is a big bonus for us. Our kids love playing in the water, riding dirt bikes and fishing. It is so nice to be in the mountains and on the water in a place that feels so remote but you are less than 15 minutes from shops, restaurants, and grocery stores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful & spacious cabin. I celebrated my 60th birthday with my 3 grown children coming from Savannah, Atlanta & Ringold & their families. We had a wonderful time. We will definitely want to rent again.

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the weekend for a wedding in Ellijay and had a blast. The home was a great space and accommodated 14 adults very nicely. There is enough space to spread out and the porch overlooking the river was especially nice. The large kitchen was perfect for a family luncheon and there was lots of storage for food. We had an overall excellent time. The home was impeccably clean when we arrived and the beds were extremely comfortable. The outdoor fireplace was one of our favorite parts. Having the pool table was a treat also when we were getting ready to go and several folks needed something to do while we cleaned up. The parking was also very nice and plentiful. It made for an excellent weekend.

Perfect cabin in a great place

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Amy and her family for allowing us to stay in this beautiful cabin. The communication between us was great. Amy made the booking and payment method very efficient and effortless.

Once we were confirmed she supplied us with a list of wonderful activities in and around Ellijay, which by the way it's a great town. We had a really nice drive from Miami, FL to Ellijay. After following Amys directions to the cabin we arrived at the property gate. once we were driving in the mountain we were greeted by 3 deer just standing on the road and the kids in the car went crazy. We arrived at nightfall and the cabin was still very impressive. The next morning I took a walk to the main road right before sunrise and there were deer all over the hills. Took a walk by the river right behind the cabin and the sound of the river in addition to the quiet mountain was a very serene experience. The cabin and the surrounding were even more impressive in the morning. The cabin inside was perfect. It is equipped with everything you need. The sleeping quarters was just as perfect with every room furnished with a king bed and the kids had their own space. By the way parents with kids, we were concerned with the height of the cabin but once you are there you will realize it is very safe. We spent a lot of time outside by the fireplace and also by the firepit next to the river. There is a Walmart super center near by for everything you need. Downtown Ellijay is really nice. We tried a couple of the wineries around and ithey were so welcoming, cozy and beautiful that we didn't want to leave.

In all it was truly wonderful experience for all of us in our group. We left with nothing negative to say other than we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely come back. Thank you Amy to you and your family for sharing this piece of heaven on earth with us and our kids. We will never forget this vacation.

I'm sorry I took so long to leave a review but that what happens when you leave Ellijay and come back to the city life...can't wait to book again.

God bless!

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. Everything was absolutely perfect. The house is so comfortable and inviting. We had 3 couples and children and it was more than enough room. There is so much to do outside and plenty of games for kids and adults. The river is beautiful, I could listen to it forever. The house has everything you need, just bring groceries and your set. Amy was a dream to rent from, I highly recommend this house!

Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Amy's beautiful home in the spring of 2015. It was our first time renting a VRBO property and we were not disappointed. The home is even more impressive than the pictures. It is beautifully decorated and everything is of high quality. Extremely spacious and comfortable. Although it was not warm enough to play in the water during our visit, you could see that it would be a great spot for cooling off. Amy was a pleasure to deal with.

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

When we first pulled up to the cabin my 9 yr. old grandson said, "Dude!" He was overwhelmed! Besides being spacious and beautiful the cabin was clean, well equipped, and nicely furnished. The bedrooms are good sized with comfortable beds. With a large family the two washer-dryer sets was very helpful. The glass sides instead of rails on the decks afford a beautiful view of the creek, which where the cabin is located, is almost as big as the Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee River Resort is a picturesque setting in the mountains of north Georgia. Though we saw no dear at the cabin, we did see tons throughout the resort. The owner was a pleasure to work with, friendly, courteous, and helpful.

More than we expected, Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

For the past 3 years my friends and I have rented a cabin in upper GA for our yearly "Mountain Retreat" and we all agreed that this year was the best ever! That's largely due to this great cabin! From the river running through the backyard to the gourmet kitchen, we were pleased with all this cabin had to offer. My interactions with Amy, the owner, were very pleasant as well and she even gave us some ideas of things to do in the area! If available, we fully plan on visiting this cabin next year!
