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. 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.

Owners are wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this cabin for a getaway weekend. On our way there we received a call from the owner that due to a hot water tank leaking the water was shut off and cabin was unavailable. He immediately offered an alternative cabin for us to stay at. The alternative cabin (Great Sky) was absolutely beautiful. As the first evening wound down we realized that the air conditioner seemed to be broken!!

To make a long story short we spoke with the owner the next morning to let him know about the air conditioner. I let him know we could not stay because of the heat and my poor dog was quite miserable. This man was understanding and apologetic and offered to get someone out immediately but we decided it best to go home.

The following day I received a beautiful email from his wife and spoke with her on the phone with continued apologies. She took my address to issue a refund for our trouble.

I highly recommend not only the Great Sky property but the wonderful honest people who own it.

Hide away on the river

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin. It’s equipped with everything you can imagine. Location is very convenient to hike, mountain bike or just visit blue ridge or other spots. Would highly recommend it to anybody. The place is very dog friendly. Owner and support was friendly and helpful. Any time again!

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.

Englewood, FL

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!
