Peaceful and Quiet With Lots of Shade by the River
4th night free thru June 30th!
Cartecay Rapids is located just 2 ½ miles (5 minute ride) from the put in point for kayaks, tubes and canoes. From there you can take a 2 to 3 hour ride (depending on how fast the river is flowing), passing several Class 1 and Class 2 rapids, including the fast moving S-turn and Class 3 Blackberry Falls. You can use the shuttle service of the Cartecay Experience or keep floating down the river until you reach our deck along the river. If you enjoy fishing, kayaking, canoeing or tubing, then this is what you’ve been looking for!
Cartecay Rapids is great for fishermen too! You can fish below the rapids on our property or pick another spot along the Cartecay. The Toccoa River is Blue Ridge is only 20 miles from the cabin, with great fly fishing near Shallowford Bridge.
With two large screen porches, you can open the doors and windows to hear the rapids along the river below the cabin. There are two comfortable king masters on the first and second floor that both have access to screen porch areas. In the loft upstairs, there is a trundle bed which serves as two twin beds when pulled out. Cartecay Rapids has all of the comforts of home including two full baths, a full size kitchen, electric oven, microwave, cabin tv, wi-fi, wood burning fireplace and the beautiful sound of the river below 24 hours a day!
Located just 4 short miles from downtown Ellijay, you’ll be just minutes away from antique shopping and dining in the quaint downtown area. The cabin is also just 15 minutes south of Blue Ridge, GA which includes shops, dining and the famous Blue Ridge Railway.

Great Mountain Bike / Kayaking Getaway
Centrally located near multiple epic trails and right on the river... An outdoor enthusiasts dream
the cabin was everything thing we needed. it was a great time and very relaxing the river is beautiful and the sounds of the water was great.
It was a ladies retreat and we had a blessed time.
This was an awesome stay, our family enjoyed staying at this property!
Beautiful house very nice view from the balcony, the house is very well equipped with everything we needed, grocery stores near by! It was a great place to spend our New Years weekend
Everything we needed & more
Property was well appointed, comfortable king beds, fully equipped kitchen, cable TV with tons of channels, decent Wi-Fi and easy access to nice decks by the river. Great fireplace that we really enjoyed and very efficient electric heat to keep us warm. Really no complaints but one suggestion. 1 trash can outside was not enough for our 4 night stay with 4 adults & one 5 year old, especially for the Christmas holidays where you have much to dispose of so an additional one could be added. Close to town (approximately 3.5 miles) so grocery stores, restaurants and multiple gift shops and other stores for shopping. Owner was good at checking in prior to our trip to answer questions and to see if we needed anything. It was mentioned that you couldn’t GPS to location but our son easily made it using Waze.
I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a woodsy riverside location to enjoy quiet time alone or with family. We spent Christmas here and it was PERFECT!!
Nice Area and View
For our needs this property was very good. Found it not as clean as expected. Example, dirty window sills and balcony. Steps to river were in poor condition.
Thank you for your comments. I have addressed your concerns with housekeeping regarding the outdoor window sills and balcony. The stairs to the river were rebuilt in March 2018.
River Ridge is locatated just 4 miles from downtown Ellijay's shopping and restaurants. The cabin sits above the river with fantastic water noise 24/7.
