About Sarah Hamilton and Ian Hamilton

Hi, my name is Sarah Hamilton. Our family recently purchased our second cabin "Rocky River Lodge" which is the sister cabin located next door to Riverstone Lodge. We as a family have been upgrading the two cabins trying to make the two best destinations around. Being somewhat local living in Douglasville we still enjoying getting away the North Georgia Mountains!

Sarah Hamilton and Ian Hamilton purchased this lodge in 2015

Why Sarah Hamilton and Ian Hamilton chose Ellijay

In all our travels in North Georgia we could not find any other cabin with its location on the water that gave us the feel and sound of the rushing waters! And the fact its in a gated community of the Coosawattee River resort allows for a safe and enjoyable environment. Within the community are a vast array of amenities from pools to gym's, to put-put, the resort offers just about anything one could ever need. The cabin its self is located on a wide river with many beautiful rapids, wich allows for canoueing, kayaking, and tube trips. And you cannot forget the fishing and swimming! That's why we now have both sister cabins!

What makes this lodge unique

The cabin has just about everything you could imagine! We offer at no charge canoes and tubes. Many renters put in above us up the river and float down to our back yard! We have a basket ball court, volleyball court, horse shoes and shuffle board, 7 person hot tub along with incredible views and a water presence second to none. And then you have the game room with a pool table, ping pong, and foosball tables! You will be entertained and laid back. And if you still need the flat screen tv's and internet we have that too!

On top of that, we have another "sister cabin" owned and operated by the same people. If you are looking to have a larger gathering , book both of our properties easily.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Held a Men's Retreat here, and had a great time! Place was clean and convenient for all to sleep. Enjoyed the Basketball, Horseshoes, and river. Nice big Kitchen to cook, and plenty of seating for everyone to eat. Owner was very helpful, when we gave him a call with a question. Overall a good experience, would (and just may) rent again!

Perfect Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

Rocky River was the perfect stay for our family group. I literally can't think of anything else we could have wanted. Seven adults and four kids under age five all loved the cabin. There were plenty of activities to keep us all busy; the game room was in constant use. The owners even decorated for Christmas (which our stay included), such a nice surprise!!! Everything was clean, well stocked, all we could ask for.

Our kids are already asking to come back - maybe we will try it in the summer. The river looks like fun!

The cabin is super clean and comfortable. It has tons of beds as well as plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Ian was super responsive, answering emails within minutes. We will be back in the summer to take advantage of the kayaks and the river!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We used the cabin for a family gathering and celebration. Our favorite place was the back porch off the main level. The cabin met all of our needs and the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. We would definitely recommend this location.
