This Secluded Cabin is just steps from the beautiful Ellijay River. Listen to the water rush by as you relax on the back screen porch or on the deck overlooking the river. You can relax in the hot tub or read a book sitting on our big rocking chairs. Use the firepit to roast your marshmellows or hot dogs or fire up the grill for your favorite steaks, burgers, or prized grilled chicken dish. You can stroll down this secluded road and visit with some of the local horses, donkeys, or goats or play an outdoor game in the big back yard. You will surely relax in this cozey cabin. Build a wood fire in the fireplace, make a drink, put your feet up and watch the stress slip away.

Beautiful Location, Very Private.
We had a fantastic time and so enjoyed listening to the creek - very relaxing! The screened-in porch in the back of the cabin was our refuge for the week. We strung a hammock near the water and didn't want to leave! The cabin itself needs a little TLC - a few things didn't work properly (gas grill slow to cook, bathroom outlet didn't work) and some of the furniture was damaged inside (guest headboard, guest standing mirror) and outside (picnic table slats rotted through). The cabin also could be cleaned more thoroughly - master bathroom not spic and span, cobwebs and insects on all the screens, large spiderwebs on front and back porches. But overall a lovely location and relaxing week in the mountains.
Awesome weekend at Great Waters Cabin
We loved this little cabin tucked quietly down a country road, with the peaceful sound of the river. Very nicely furnished with perfect place to relax. We will be back soon hopefully.
Glad you enjoyed your stay
Perfect cozy cabin by the perfect river spot
My wife and kid, my parents, and myself really enjoyed this cabin and will be staying here again when we come back. We enjoyed the river a lot and how cozy the cabin was. Highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a place by the water.
Very relaxing, enjoyable location, but beware of wasps!
Overall, we had a great time here. The location by the river is perfect! We (my husband and I and our 12-yr old daughter) spent most of our time tubing and wading in the river. We also loved having a campfire and making smores. We never got cell phone service, but with the WIFI we were able to Facetime with our other family members. There are several reasons I am not rating this place with five stars. While we were unloading our van, we stopped to rest for a second on the front porch and my husband was stung by a wasp on his hand. We looked up and saw the wasp nest with others swarming around. We looked for wasp spray and there was none. Upon further inspection, my husband saw at least six other active wasp nests. We called the local cleaning couple and were told they could not get out to the cabin until the next morning. (It was around 6:30pm when we had called them.) Luckily we could use the back door where there were no wasps. The next morning they arrived and sprayed all the nests and left another can of spray. I really expected the owner to call or text with an apology. He never did. I know the wasps were not his fault, but a concerned attitude would have been nice. The comfortable king-size bed is in the guest bedroom. The smaller, queen-size bed is in the master bedroom. I think it must be this way because of room size and wall space. However, the master bedroom bed is so noisy and uncomfortable. The ceiling fan is stuck on one speed, high. The three of us ended up sleeping together in the king bed in the guest bedroom. There are close neighbors on one side who enjoyed playing loud music; luckily only during the day. Would we return here? There's a definite possibility, but I hope next time I can rate it with five stars.
Always a wonderful time
This is our 5th stay (I think?) and, as usual, it was great. We love the location - easy to get to both Blue Ridge and all the surrounding towns. The river is super, flat yard is A+ for kids and cabin is everything we need! See you next year :)
Cute cabin on the creek!
Nice place. Management and owner were great to work with.
