About the Property

3.5 acres/450ft. Incredible Riverfront, Your Private Whitewater Park

Thanks so much for viewing our home in Ellijay, GA. We hope you will visit it and love it as much as we do. It is rare to find a riverfront property with 3.5 acres and 450 feet on such a beautiful part of the river. We have a view down the river that can't be beat.

Our home is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home. It has wood floors throughout. The master has a king bed and a day bed with trundle underneath. The master bath has double vanities. The 2nd bedroom upstairs also has a king bed. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed and a full size bed.

Towels, sheets, blankets are all included. Two rolls toilet paper, a bar of soap, pump hand soap, and a hair dryer are provided in each full bath. The kitchen is fully stocked with 2 rolls of paper towels, unlimited garbage bags, blender, coffee grinder, coffee maker, cooking utensils and plenty of pots, pans, and casserole dishes for your meals. There are plenty of glasses, silverware, plates and everything you will need. The table seats 8 guests and there is a leaf to expand to 10 guests.

There is a charcoal grill on the deck. Bring charcoal please.

Enjoy the huge screened in porch with swing, glider, and rocking chairs. Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the rustic table and chairs so you can enjoy the outdoors.

Inside, there is a remote control gas fireplace in the living room. Outside, there is a fire pit by the river's edge next to the swings and chairs so everyone can enjoy the view down the river while listening to the sounds of the whitewater.

There is wireless internet throughout the house. In the living room there is a 50 inch flat-screen TV with DVR using Directv and a DVD , a 32 inch flat-screen TV in the basement rec room, and in the 3rd bedroom there is a small TV with DVD only.

You can fish right from the bank of the river and there is a stocked fishing pond in our gated community as well. No license is required within our community. There are board games in the partially finished basement rec. room with a ping pong table, corn hole boards/bean bags and small basketball goal. You can tube the river by bringing your own tubes and putting in upstream (see directions in guest book) OR you can go to the General Store and have them transport you to and from put in and take out locations.

The rec/fitness center is just 10 minutes away within the gates of our community. You can play pool, ping pong, games, swim in the indoor heated pool, play putt putt, or work out with the gym equipment. Guests are required to buy an amenity card so please ask about this if you are interested. Guest amenity cards are required.

There are parks with picnic tables, play ground equipment, and grills. There is a doggy park, a fishing pond, and walking trails. These things do not require a guest amenity card.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, there are 2 outdoor pools open along with a teen center at the Riverside Pool. Again, there is an amenity card required for admittance.

There is no smoking indoors. Pets are allowed with permission from the owner.

Go by the grocery store and pick up supplies on your way in. You'll prefer not to leave once you arrive!!!!

Please read the reviews that address the gravel road to our home. That will give you a good idea of whether it would concern you. There is a short stretch that is bumpy but is not in any way dangerous. Some guests who have never been on mountain roads have expressed their opinions. If you have a sports car, it is not the car you want to drive. A regular height car is better. 4 wheel drive is NOT needed. Drive slowly and carefully over this short stretch of road.

We look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your interest in our home. This home is truly managed by owner so we take a special interest in making your stay perfect.

Jim and Beth
