We enjoyed our two days away from civilization here. The views of the hills were wonderful. The only noises were from birds. I would return here. The only issues were minor: the instructions need an update.
First of all this is the neatest resort area ever! We always go away from it all on vacations and even in a resort you feel truly away from it all. Lots of privacy. Coosawattee is a must stay area. We loved driving around looking for deer. We tubed the Cartecay river. Rented a boat for Carter Lake for the entire day. Swam in the pools. Fished the rivers (caught 2 channel cats and 2 bass). Went hiking. Played giant jenga. Enjoyed the hot tub. Beds sleep amazingly well. The balconies were so nice! Must go to Tumbling Falls. Easy hike with a lot to offer. The downtown area of Ellijay is like a trip to the past. The people are so friendly and the shops and restaurants are wonderful. Definitely eat ice cream downtown. There are a couple of different spots and you’ll not go wrong at any choice. You are not far from the convenience of town. It does take about 10 minutes to get out of the resort from the cabin. There is a pool toward the front entrance and it take about 8 minutes to drive there. There is so much to do. We were at the cabin for a week and still did not see everything within the resort. There is absolutely no way to get bored here. I would not recommend for elderly if they are not active. This place is for those who love nature and do not mind walking up hills. Of course you don’t have to walk hills if you drive everywhere. The trek down to the river at the cabin is steep but worth it. Once at the river, Go to the left and at the bend of the river there is a good fishing hole and swimming spot. Pretty deep. We have a family of four- mom, dad and 2 older teenagers plus our black lab. We were all very sad to leave here. We rarely want to go back to a vacation spot but we would come back here! If you normally go to the Smokey’s - this needs to be your new spot! The owner is amazing and is on top of everything. She was so helpful and even brought our dog a toy! Thanks so much for being such an amazing host and allowing us to stay at your home. Great memories!!
