About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath/Loft on Ellijay River/Mountain View Cabin

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.

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 and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was beautiful, it couldn't have been better!! We even had a friend join us for the week we were there hound dog kids loved him!! One of the tv wasn't working and I let them know just so they were aware wasn't expecting them to fix it the next day someone was there replacing it. Would definitely stay there again.

Checked every box!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up a one week vacation at Great Waters, and we had a blast! Morning jogs up the mountain and back, visiting the horses, floating in the river, building rock towers in the river, we visited and paid respects at the cemetery down the road, and fires down by the river in the evenings. The cabin is well stocked with a great selection of new and popular DVDs, baskets of books, dozens of board and card games. If you don't have fun at Great Waters then you are doing it ALL WRONG!

This is our 4th year in a row visiting this area and our favorite trip yet!!

*I would also like to note that the maintenance/housekeeping team were quick and efficient when we had a problem with the hot tub! A++

Nice Setting

  • 3 of 5

The landscaping of the property is cared for but the interior needs updating, including indoor and outdoor furniture. We also found the mattresses/box springs on both beds squeaky and uncomfortable. The loft would be much more useful with twin beds and side table with lighting. Outtub needs some attention as it has aged.

Ideal location, literally "out of this world". Nature lovers paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience at Great Waters Cabin on Ellijay River. Lots of games, movies, and outdoor entertainment for children and adults as well. Very secluded and comfortable. Well maintained with easy road access. Saw a bear loping along the road on our way out one day. Great kayaking, tubing, and hiking close by. Ingles in Blueridge offers world class food options. Will definitely be returning!

Wonderful cabin with a few issues...

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and located in a great spot. It had all the items you would need if you chose to stay there and never leave for a few days or if you chose to adventure out. We walked in to a cute welcome 'basket' on the table with a few 'necessities' (shampoo/conditioner/body wash/shaver). That was a sweet, welcoming touch. During out stay, we had a few issues. We were also welcomed by fleas. My husband stood on the living room rug and his legs were covered with fleas. Because there is no cell service at the cabin, I tried to contact the local contact that was listed on the sheet posted on the table, on the house phone, but the phone call would not go through. We finally found flea spray and sprayed. By the end of the 2nd day, we didn't notice as many fleas. The jets in the hot tub also didn't work. Again, I couldn't contact the local contact person. We were a little disappointed in the "River" located at the cabin. Where we come from it is called a creek. It also is not totally secluded. There is another cabin close by, which was also occupied when we were there, and you can see your neighbors. If you have pets and not looking for a river to fish at the cabin, this place is great. If you don't have indoor pets and want to walk out the back door and fish, this is not the place. On the positive side, there is a gas grill and wonderful screened in porch, with fans, that is super nice. We enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the porch each day. There were also games, books and a foosball table to entertain yourselves. The local area, Ellijay and Blue Ridge, offer opportunities to visit apple orchards, trout fishing, kayaking, zip lining, hiking. Great area to visit!

Secluded get-away, prime riverfront, lovely outdoors area with fire pit and deck overlooking river

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the rustic environment of this cabin. Great place for our children and pups. Spacious green area for playing croquet, bocce ball or just throwing the frisbee. Fun times even when raining by playing foosball in the recreational loft. Hot tub was welcome after long hikes and relaxing in the cool evenings. Screened porch offered wondrous place to open french doors and enjoy the crisp morning air while listening to the gurgling river. Our fourth time at Great Waters - name of the cabin.

(one downside, it's 5.5 miles to the closest place to get milk, so plan ahead :-) Oh, and NO signal with AT&T.)
