Overview

About the property

Peaceful and Quiet With Lots of Shade by the River and the fourth night free!

*4th night free does not apply to holiday weekends or October 1st thru December 1st. 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 water noise from rapids

  • 5 of 5

Just spent four days in Ellijay and surrounding area for spring break. The cabin was in a great central location for exploring and hiking. The cabin had everything we needed. The two master bedrooms had doors that opened to a screen porch area so you could sleep to some great water noise from the rapids below the cabin. It was to cold to tube on the river. Planning on a return trip in the summer to enjoy the water activities.

Great property - not clean

  • 3 of 5

The property was great! Beautiful and close to the water. You could hear the stream with the doors open. It was a quiet area and close to downtown Ellijay.

Now to the downside. The cabin is a little dated and needs some work. The first thing upon entering was how dirty the place was. The island bar had crumbs all over it. There were food crumbs and dirt all along the baseboards in the kitchen area. The microwave was disgusting. I wouldn't use it. The refrigerator/freezer (mostly freezer) was dirty. There was a dirty knife on the countertop. There was spilled popcorn all over the floor under the living area coffee table and furniture. When my husband pulled the trashcan out to empty it, there was old food and trash behind it.

The shower/bathtub had hair all over it. Toilets were not very clean. They need to be detailed cleaned. Again, dirt and grime around the baseboards in the bathrooms.

The bed was very comfortable and I believe clean. Thank God! Otherwise, I would have had to go to a hotel.

I'm not sure what our cleaning fee was, but I resent paying one when the place is not being cleaned. The owner needs to hire professionals to come in and do a thorough and detailed cleaning. I would pay extra for this service.

There are very old rugs on the outdoor decks. They would be better off, not having them. It just makes the place look more run down.

This was my first experience renting from VRBO. It will probably be my last, as there is no guarantee that the owner is cleaning after the guests leave.

Owner's Response: Don, I am very surprised with your experience. I didn't hear from you during your stay so, unfortunately I couldn't respond to your concerns. In the last three months, we've replaced the living room furniture, replaced the roof, pressure washed the decks and the siding. It is a 20 year old river cabin, so the walls and floors are made of wood. It's a rustic cabin style. I appreciate your comments and we will work hard to make sure that these issues are addressed. Sincerely, Kevin

Very Nice cabin and beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin itself was very nice. Great location on the water to listen to the rapids while enjoying coffee. However there is no walking trails within walking distance from cabin due to private property all around. This was tough for us since we had 4 kids and a dog so we all had to load up to go hiking but Fort Mountain State Park was also beautiful.

tranquil in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love with the place and didn't want to leave! There for my daughter's wedding almost literally across the street so it was ideal. I definitely want to come back in the summertime and stay a little longer. Hearing the river and seeing the deer wander through was so relaxing! very clean and beautifully furnished!

Amazing Water Noise--Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful stay at "just like the name says" Amazing Water Noise! Cabin was very quaint and homey, easy to locate and just the right the distance from downtown Elijay. We will return.
