We needed a last minute place to get away from Hurricane Dorian and chose this property for its screened porch overlooking the running water. The home was just what we needed. We spent hours on the screened porch listening to the water and the nature sounds. The King bed in the master was very comfortable. My husband was worried about being able to get work done remotely due to the poor phone service, but the WIFI, although a little slower than our norm, was perfectly adequate for him to continue his remote work. Our Iphones worked well with the WIFI calling setting. The TV service also included Netflix and Amazon prime on top of the DirectTV channels, which was perfect for my goal of complete relaxation while my husband worked. Keep in mind that a trip to the grocery or restaurant takes 15-20 minutes with the first 12-15 on very hilly, winding roads. We had no issues as we planned ahead and combined errands/ eating out. I was surprised at how many restaurants were in town with great food. A trip to one of the many apple orchards/farm markets in the area is also not to be missed. I was very thankful to find this special place at the last minute.
We have a great time there and river is just.......Peaceful! We also saw lots of deer. The house is just as what the owner describe. The only thing need to be update ... are those pots n pans-all wore out!
Rustic River Retreat
Perfect spot for families who enjoy the great outdoors. We chose this location in conjunction with our trip for a baseball event in Cartersville. It was quite a drive but worth the peace and quiet of the cabin. We enjoyed sitting by the river and our campfire. We were able to sleep with the windows open, and really enjoyed the swinging bed on the porch upstairs. Deer galore and fun to watch. It was a long trip into town for essentials but that was expected. Disappointed in the fishing. Tried several spots that were recommended with not one bite. Enjoyed spending time in the woods. Beautiful cabin!
Great stay at a very nice cabin
We stay at a cabin in Ellijay almost every year so we're getting some experience on the pros and cons of various properties. I'll share some of these to help you decide.
This cabin is very nice and was in super clean condition. We have stayed at cabins with slightly better amenities, such as granite counters and nicer tubs and showers, but this cabin was still satisfactory. There was no ping-pong or billiard table, but we don't really care because we try to be outside the whole time. Very nice fire pit (could improve the seating) and a fantastic riverfront location with stepping stones suitable for fishing and playing in the river, which we did plenty of! The screened patio and decking overlooking the river is fantastic, and we definitely would have slept on the outdoor hanging bed if it would have been a less humid time of year. The kitchen has everything we needed. The beds are super comfortable; we really slept great. There is not an outdoor spa like many of these cabins have, but that's not important for us. There is a pretty nice grill on the patio, which we used one evening. It had not been cleaned, but the cooking surfaces were in good shape and it worked great.
The listing claims a 2-car garage and a port-cochere. We never found the garage, but there is a paved 2-car carport. Deer were hanging around our driveway when we first arrived and we saw them every day!
I had shipped a package to ourselves from the world's largest online retailer. They said there was a problem delivering to that address, so I contacted the property manager to ask if there are any special instructions for receiving packages. She said she had no idea. That was the extent of our interaction.
Overall a great cabin in a great location. I would recommend it.
Enjoyable mini vacation
The property was in a excellent location. It was easy to get to the location so you can drive a car instead of an suv. There was more than enough supplies. The cabin was clean and very spacious. The balcony off of the master bedroom has a swing and ceiling fan. The gas grill was nice and You do see alot of deers that are not scared of you. This property is a place that i would revisit.
1)i think the lizard was mad that we were in his area(back porch). Lol
2)we didn't catch any fish. Lol
I would recommend for you to visit this location.
Thanks for this experience in your cabin.
Can’t beat it!!!
Our family was so pleased with this rental. It was just what we were looking for. Easy access to the river, great parking, not to many stairs and lovely outside seating areas. Inside, everything was well equipped and oh the beds! We had everything needed for a great stay. It is a very curvy drive to reach the cabin but the passengers were kept busy counting the deer.
