Riverfront home w/ firepit & wrap-around deck - dogs welcome!

Watch the Coosawatee River roll by at this three-bedroom Ellijay home, a riverfront log lodge with an expansive wrap-around deck that overlooks the river, and dog-friendly accommodations for hikers, boating enthusiasts, and those in search of quiet country beauty.

You'll find this multi-level home on the western banks of the Coosawatee River, seven miles southwest of downtown Ellijay. Time your visit for autumn to attend the annual Georgia Apple Festival, rent a pontoon boat or bring your own watercraft to the Carters Lake Marina 17 miles southwest, or spend an afternoon admiring the cascades in Amicalola Falls State Park 27 miles southeast.

The living space is full of North Georgia charm, thanks to natural wood walls and a wood-burning fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stone facade. Before you lace up your hiking boots each morning, you can whip up pancakes and apple butter in the open kitchen (with a dishwasher), grab a warm pair of socks from the washer/dryer, and use the free WiFi to double-check the trail maps.

Come home from a memorable afternoon to kick back with a cold drink on the deck, listen to the river rush by, and prepare the charcoal grill for an afternoon barbecue with friends. Gather around the firepit with your dog curled up at your feet (please note that a nightly pet fee applies) and retire to the sofa each evening for a movie night on the DVD player and one of the four cable TVs.

The PRO’S were: (1) The water view and an easy walk to it, (2) The scenic drive to/from the cabin from the gate, (3) Well stocked kitchen, (4) cabin felt clean, (5) rental agent communicated well and provided all info we needed
CON’S were: (1) Cabin looks better in pictures then in person, decor outdated, slipcover on couch, drape used to cover door that didn’t fit (2) I was bothered by the $45 hot tub fee (which we didn’t even use) but if you list a feature as an amenity, there she not be a fee. We used the fireplace, should we have paid a fireplace fee!?! (3) Beds were uncomfortable

Very private river location with nice level area. Nice log cabin with fine interior, TVS work, kitchen with plenty of dishes and pans.

We loved the house and the location. It was just exactly the change we needed from Florida. Saw lots of deer, geese and hawks. The Ellijay area is beautiful and this is great place to relax and chill.

I loved everything about this cabin. My boyfriend and I will always come back to this exact one! It was so roomy and comfy. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Gavin B. Oct 2018
What can I say, we look forward to being back. Huddled up in the back of the hill, private and a stunning view of the Coosawatee River what else do you need to enjoy some fresh air and relaxation with your family. Cabin was clean, cozy, and accommodating. You will not go wrong if you book your mountain stay here!

We had a wonderful quick trip up to the north Georgia mountains and really enjoyed everything about this home except for the beds. All three beds are extremely hard and uncomfortable. Aside from the beds the house is well-equipped and in a great location!

Loved the location, space and views of this vacation home. We are 5 and we brought our dog! Very peaceful place. Everything was furnished and it was clean . The hot tub was a nice bonus. Hiking in the parks near by was a fun family activity.

My husband and I had the best time. The cabin was perfect. The wildlife that we saw was amazing! I don't think I will ever see another bald eagle! I loved that the river was right in the back yard and very accessible. We will definitely be back soon!

River Run is roomy, quiet and has a hot tub. The kitchen is well stocked and the cabin was very clean. Could not ask for more!
We love everything about this house, everything!, we will go back again. One down side was the WiFi, it’s was too slowww plus no phone signal in the house cause the house is down by the river. It would be nice if the owner upgrade the WiFi signal to faster one. Thank you we enjoyed very much

If you are looking for a place to exchange the noise and chaos of normal life for the sound of a babbling river and the singing of birds, this is it. Experience seclusion and privacy within the safety of a gated reserve as time seems to slow. And don't be surprised if you are greeted by a deer or two as you drive the final mile to your getaway cabin. Loved it!
Phyllis M. May 2018
The cabin was very nice the big porch was awesome and sitting by the river and the fire pit was great my family and I loved the weekend there. Can’t wait to go back.
Melinda G. Mar 2018
We loved the house so much! It was perfect for our fly fishing get away! The only downer was that there are no trout in the river right in front of the house.
Walter S. Mar 2018
The cabin was great! Loved the fireplace, bbq, and hot tub, as well as both decks. Although the tub started loosing heat the last 2 days. Not sure if the filter was plugged or the temperatures outside were too cold. The furniture was comfortable, especially the king bed in the loft. The gurgling of the river was very soothing. We appreciated the amount of dishes available, we could actually fill up the dishwasher before running it! The only downside to our whole week was the fact that the gps didn’t recognize the area, and with all the winding roads it was easy to get lost. Also, Vacasa didn’t provide an access code for the gate, so we had to wait in line and had to explain our rental agreement each time we came through the gate, a bit inconvenient. Other than that, we really enjoyed all our contacts with Vacasa, and will use their services again! Overall we really enjoyed the area and the relaxation! Would definitely return to the area and the cabin!
