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.

Relaxing water sounds

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. This area is beautiful. The house was plenty big for 6 people. My adult daughter and 18 year old granddaughter said the trundle bed and couch were not real comfortable, but they slept ok. The neighbor next door was very nice. The house is in a convenient location to many attractions. We had a good time. Thank you.

Beautiful and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cabin because it is close to Deep South Farm and we are so glad we did!! When arriving, it had a comfortable feel and was very clean. We were busy with wedding festivities so we were not able to be in the cabin very much but would love to come back for a weekend of relaxation. Very nice!!

Perfect location for tubing

  • 5 of 5

Great stay, wish we could have stayed longer. The kids spent hours tubing the river. Kevin gave us a great put in location where we dropped the kids off and they could tube back to the deck below the cabin (1 1/2-2 hrs). They loved S-turn and Blackberry Falls. We put a red handkerchief out on the deck so, they would know where to get out!

The cabin is close to town, an apple orchard and Amicalola Falls. The screen porch off the two king masters lets you crack the doors for great water noise and amazing sleep : )

Quiet, tranquil, clean, amazing

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely amazing. We were really able to wind down in the peace of the quiet and tranquil property. The views were amazing from the different decks. The house was very clean and everything was neatly arranged. Moreover, instructions were provided for all of the different utilities and well-placed in their appropriate areas.

Great river cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cabin is everything as described. It is clean and well-maintained we enjoyed the amazing water noise of the river. We visited the Apple orchards, wineries and organic farm all just a few minutes from the cabin. Amicalola Falls is also less than a half an hour away from the cabin.
