About the property

Luxury Waterfront and Privacy!!! 750 Feet on River, Porches, Hot Tub, Pool Table

This unique house offers you more riverfront than almost any cabin in Coosawattee, sitting in the middle of 3 adjoining riverfront lots giving you over 750+ feet of water frontage on the beautiful North Georgia Trout river, Mountaintown Creek.

Feel free to explore the property to the right of the lodge with its many trails and secret fishing spots. The house is private and secluded with all the space you need to get away from it all. Across the river from this house is a nature preserve, so you have lots of privacy.

Home is 3600+ square feet in the main living area with 2000+ square feet of covered porches. If you bring the kids along, they are going to love the huge yard and Gorilla play set.

There are 3 king size bedrooms and a media room with 2 “full” sized futons. We also have a bunk room (queen/twin and a double/twin) with a shuffle board table that will accommodate 4-6 people.

Kitchen has a large granite counter tops and island which are great for parties and serving large parties. The stainless-steel appliances are new and the kitchen is fully stocked.

Two sets of high efficiency new washer dryers on the main and lower level of the house.

The bathrooms are amazing with granite counter tops and custom natural stone showers and Jacuzzi garden tubs.

Entertainment for the home includes a new seven-person sunken hot tub complete with LED lighting on the porch, Foosball, and shuffle board table.

We turned the loft into a man cave with a professional billiards table and large comfy couches.

In the evenings, you can enjoy yourself besides one of the many fireplaces or huddle around the large fire pit area next to the river’s edge.

There are five large flat screen TV's spread across the bedrooms, futon room and the living room over the fireplace. We have SMART TV's, DISH Cable and Wi-Fi.

The Coosawattee River Resort is located just a few miles off Hwy 515 outside of Ellijay and East Ellijay, Georgia in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. The Resort provides the perfect weekend vacation getaway and is just a short drive from Atlanta,

Chattanooga, and Murphy, NC.

The Coosawattee River Resort is a 5,500+ acre nature preserve that leisurely meanders along two beautiful rivers - Coosawattee River and Mountaintown Creek. The Coosawattee River Resort is a great community offering an extra layer of safety and convenience from the 24/7 gated security.

There are plenty of things to do in the area, including all kinds of lake and river water sports, hiking, mountain biking, antique and crafts shopping, scenic drives, and golf. Our Georgia mountain cabin offers privacy, peace and quiet, and cool mountain breezes, and is just minutes from the shops and restaurants in Ellijay and the Blue Ridge area.

Come spend a weekend or longer in our log cabin and feel the cares of everyday life slip away. We hope you will make “Trickey Trout River Lodge” your second home in the mountains and will return again and again. If you need room for larger groups add our other cabin "Trout Trap" VRBO - #109998 which is not far down the road and on the same river. PS- You can tube from one cabin to the next!

Please bookmark our site and come back often. Thank you for considering us and we hope to see you soon!

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 - VRBO #109998. We have just purchased two additional river houses that are side by side giving you your own private compound. When we are finished remodeling, we will introduce "The Twins"

Amy Padgett purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Amy Padgett chose Northwest High Country

The word “Ellijay” is an Anglicized form of a Cherokee word, perhaps meaning "place of green things" or "many waters." This would make a lot of sense considering this is the place where the Ellijay and Cartecay Rivers meet forming the Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee and Mountaintown come together and flow into Carter’s Lake: A gorgeous recreational lake developed by the Corps of Engineers. This region abounds with wildlife, including deer, wild turkeys, bears, eagles, and hawks. The Rivers are a favorite for trout fishermen or feel free to our stocked fishing pond within the resort.

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 river 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.

Wow. I just don't have the right words to describe it.

The moment my wife and I saw the pictures on the web we knew this was the place we where looking for.

Very secluded, clean, spacious and well maintained.

The sound of rushing waters brought back some nice childhood memories.

Worth every penny.

Beautiful Rental Right On The River!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home was perfect. The river was beautiful to look at, listen to and play in -- right in the backyard. We tubed by walking up the trail; never had to get in the car. Plenty of space and kitchen was well-stocked. Loved the bon-fire set up, too!

Thanks for everything, Amy! Wonderful rental all the way around!

Beautiful home, Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I can't say enough about how nice this cabin was, and the lot & creek make it absolutely perfect. The pictures really don't due the place justice, and that was a first for us. We have stayed in quite a few cabins in the area, and they are never quite as good as you hope they will be. Pictures and descriptions of these places tend to be misleading, but this cabin was better than we hoped for. The best part for us was the lot. End of the road privacy, a nice level back yard with easy access to the most perfect creek I've ever seen.

Everything about the property was amazing! It was beautifully designed and decorated.

  • 5 of 5

Three generations all found plenty to enjoy. From tubing in the creek to bonding around the fire pit everyone had a favorite space. The barbeque pit and the well-equipped kitchen allowed our chefs the opportunity to create some amazing meals. The wineries and the gem mining were hits.

Amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed sharing time with my kids,, grandkids and husband. The cabin is beautiful , peaceful and with no neighbors you will feel like a millionaire :). I enjoyed the beautiful river , the kids and I enjoyed playing in it. Walmart being near by was a plus. The beds were comfortable and the washer and dryer were another plus for all of us. You would have to stay to truly experience what I am writing about . Now as I go back to the busy city , and if any time it becomes to hectic, I will close my eyes and remember the cabin.
