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 Ellijay

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.

Beautiful Cabin, stocked with the necessities. Lots of amenities to keep you busy and relaxed!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin on a great lot. We made great use of the river, playground and flat yard, hot tub, outdoor fireplace and fire pit, and stocked kitchen during our long weekend. There was plenty to do while also keeping us relaxed. Amy was great to work with, very responsive, and we were all surprised at how well appointed the cabin was. From trash bags and paper towels to laundry detergent, if there was anything we forgot, Amy had our backs! The 3 master suits were great for sharing with multiple families. Would love to come back during summer months for tubing! Can't say enough good things about this cabin!

Beautiful home and amazing riverfront property.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and amazing riverfront property. This was the perfect spot for our second annual family cabin weekend. The home is well taken care of and was stocked with everything we wanted or needed, including wood for the multiple fireplaces we sat by continuously through our time there. Thanks for allowing us to make family memories we will always remember (especially the gender reveal that took place on Friday introducing our new niece)!

The cabin was perfect for our group of 14. It looks even better in person than in the photos. Location is ideal and you can't beat the view of the river. We are already planning a summer trip here.

We arrived on Thursday and was in awe of this home, every thing was so beautiful and the pictures didn't do this cabin justice. Woke up Friday morning and had about two inches of snow the plan was to stay in jammies all day and watch lifetime movies but the power went out and the beautiful snow just continued coming down. The remainder of our group came up on Friday, still no power but we were all good we roasted weiners on the fire and had hot dogs for supper. We danced and played music and actually enjoyed each others company and just visited with each other. Saturday still no power so we played games and had lots of junk food and some of our group went out to make snow angels. It was quite the adventure but we were really happy girls when the power came on. I can't wait to go back to this cabin with my family.
