About Jay Mitchell

We love the outdoors, so we built this home to enjoy the river and beautiful views. The home feels like you are in a tree house, with a large, flat, park like setting by the river. You can drive 10 minutes to rent kayaks or tubes at Wildwood Outfitters and float easy right down to the property. It's about a 1 1/2 hour trip and you can easily get out of the river with ease. Enjoy the many hiking trails nearby, including hiking Yonah Mountain, Panther Creek Falls, and Tallulah Gorge State park. Award-winning wineries are nearby with tours and music on the weekends. Art galleries and antique destinations fill the area. We LOVE our treehouse on the river and are sure you will enjoy your stay!

Jay Mitchell purchased this house in 2003

Beautiful Spot Overlooking River

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the weekend while attending a wedding in the nearby area. The cabin is easy to get to, has lots of amenities and is soooo relaxing. We could have just sat on the screened porch for hours just to hear the rushing river below. It is in a great spot. There are homes nearby, but, you wouldn't know it for how the cabin is situated on the mountain. We hope to come back during warmer weather to go tubing on the river. Thank you for sharing your home.

A most stunning, soothing, relaxing private setting! This property is a delightful tree house nestled in the forest directly on a rushing section of the Chattahoochee River. Enjoy sweeping views from the tree tops on the 30 ft long screened porch or the hot tub overlooking the river. The easy rock path from the house takes you to a private river front patio and a lazy hammock. Kayak in and out. Fish from the bank or wade out to the center.

Award-winning wineries are right near by with live entertainment and tours. Antiquing, art galleries, and hiking nearby also along with restaraunts and grocery stores in nearby Cornelia, Clarkesville, Cleveland, and Clayton. Visitors are always delighted!
