Overview

About the property

Great Ellijay Cabin Rental - 3br plus loft with lots to do and explore nearby. Enjoy tubing on the Coosawatee, mountain biking at one of the many local trails, fishing at Carter's Lake or just chilling at the cabin.

The cabin is cozy and perfect for a couple using only the master and common areas on the main floor, but with 2 more bedrooms and a loft upstairs, there's plenty of space if you need it!

A full rocking chair front porch, as well as a smaller back porch for grilling and/or watching the sun rise, help you enjoy the peace of the outdoors in north Georgia.

Details:

- 3 bedrooms all w queen beds

- Futon that converts to additional queen

- Linens provided (extra blankets & throws)

- Modern fully stocked kitchen

- Washer and Dryer on main floor

- New hand made farm table (thanks Dad)

- DVD player and lots of DVDs

- Hot Tub

Coosawattee River Resort:

Coosawattee River Resort (as the name suggests) is on the Coosawattee River in Ellijay, Georgia just an hour and a half north of Atlanta. Walking down the road a bit, you can hear the river as it meanders toward Carter's Lake. Deer, numerous birds and even turkey can be seen on every walk.

The community has various common areas and miles and miles of gravel roads great for walking. At the Eagle Mountain entrance, the quaint General Store and the animal refuge add to the country flair.

But never fear, you won't be too far from civilization if you discover there's something you forgot or if you decide to head to town for dinner. A quick 10 minute drive and you'll be in East Ellijay.

The community also does tubing trips from the general store and there are several access points to the river.

About Christa

An international traveller from Atlanta who has lived overseas on multiple occassions. My style of travel doesn't involve hotels as I like to meet the locals and stay in 'real' homes/flats.

Now, I have a cabin/vacation home of my own that I would like to share with others. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Why Christa chose North Georgia Mountains

Love the Ellijay area which is only an hour and a half north of Atlanta. The area has lots to offer with Carter's Lake, the Coosawattee and Cartecay Rivers, the Apple festival, numerous trails and much more.

The cabin was beautiful but bath and hot tub was not up to our personal standards!

  • 1 of 5

The cabin owner was not available when problem arose. She was on vacation herself but when someone has a rental they should be available or leave someone in charge 7x24 in the event of emergency. We were locked out of the cabin the first night and was forced to go to a motel with no clothes, meds and insulin and had a 9:00 event to attend the next morning. Many calls and text to the telephone # that was supplied to us in booking Info was not answered until approx 9:30 the next morning. Although she returned $100 to us she did not give us an additional night as we requested. The cabin was available/not booked but she preferred returning a $100 than to accommodate our request which we felt was just spiteful!

Beautiful Cabin and Great location -2nd stay

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Falling Leaf for another spring break trip to the mountains! We like the location and amenities, and the cabin is well stocked and maintained. Our boys love the hot tub and the rec center. We built a fire, went kayaking with Cartecay River Experience, and watched movies and played games. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

When we walked into the cabin we were taken back by the beautiful kitchen and living room. The cabin had all of the amenities to make you feel at home. We are already planning our return trip to Falling Leaf Retreat.

Great place to stay for a get-a-way.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was comfortable, clean, spacious, and just what we were looking for in a weekend retreat to see the colors of the fall leaves. While just about 10-15 minutes away from downtown Ellijay, the cabin was far enough away to feel the spaciousness of the mountains, but close enough to have reasonably quick access to shops and restaurants. It was a thumbs up from each of us who stayed there.

Additional pricing information

Cleaning £57.98
Refundable Damage Deposit £96.63

VRBO does not allow an additional set fee for parties over 4. However, it takes the cleaner an extra hour when there are additional linens to wash. Thus, I reserve the right to retain $25 from the refundable deposit for additional cleaning costs. Using the deposit funds is more accurate as I can charge the additional amount only when it is charged to me rather than charging an additional per night rate for larger parties.
