Dog-friendly forest cabin with a hot tub, shared pool, game room, two decks

Surround yourself with wildlife and tranquil forest landscapes at this two-bedroom Ellijay cabin, a cozy and welcoming home with an abundance of mountain charm, a private hot tub, shared pool, and firepit, and a basement game room to provide hours of family fun.

This three-level, dog-friendly retreat is part of the Coosawattee River Resort in North Georgia, which is just three miles southwest of downtown Ellijay. The home sits in a mountain valley that is well-traveled by white-tailed deer, allowing guests to enjoy frequent sightings of the local wildlife.

Admire wonderful alpine details as you enter the living space, which features hardwood floors, exposed tongue-and-groove on the walls and ceiling, and a beautiful stone hearth. Turn on the gas fireplace, take a seat in the leather recliner, and use the WiFi to plan tomorrow's adventures.

As your kids retreat to the den to watch a few shows on the flatscreen cable TV, get a head start on dinner in the kitchen, where you'll find stainless steel appliances, a five-burner gas range, and a center island with two bar stools. Light the gas grill to barbecue chicken and sit down to eat at the six-person table.

In the spring, summer, and colorful autumn months, you'll have two covered decks with cushioned lounge furniture, Adirondack chairs, and views of the surrounding valley. And no matter the season, you'll enjoy a five-person hot tub on the lower deck and an outdoor firepit in the backyard.

Spend your evenings sipping wine on the front porch, watching the sunset over the ridge line, and taking your dog for long walks (please note that an additional nightly fee applies). Your kids will also delight in the basement game room, which offers Ping-Pong, an ESPN Quick Shot, sofas, and another TV.

With two bedrooms and three bathrooms, Bucky and Doe-Doe's Place can sleep as many as eight guests. On the main level, you'll find an inviting bedroom with a queen-size bed, while the upstairs room offers two double beds and a private bathroom. The living room, den, and game room also have a queen-size sofabed and a futon.

Additional amenities at this cabin include private laundry facilities, shared pool, a collection of puzzles and board games, and a bin of corn to leave for the deer in the yard.

Whether you're planning a family vacation full of outdoor adventures or a relaxing retreat with your loved ones, you won't find a more serene escape than the mountains of North Georgia. Take a short drive into downtown Ellijay, the quaint town that has hosted the Georgia Apple Festival each October since 1971.

You'll also be only 18 miles from Carters Lake, where you can hike along the 62-mile shoreline, rent a pontoon boat at the marina, or drop your fishing line for spotted bass and walleye.

Experience the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains in every season - begin planning your Ellijay vacation today!

House was clean, plenty of kitchen utensils and comfy home

Bucky and Does was a very nice place. Peaceful and tranquil. Kids really enjoyed the downstairs area with the ping pong table and the basketball game. Then the hot tub and fire pit right out side the porch area. We loved the deers (especially the babies) that were everywhere and them walking right up. The multiple pools thru out the resort was really nice. I would definitely stay here again.

My kids loved the game room

This cabin has a great man cave downstairs! Driveway is a little tricky!

We really enjoyed our stay at Bucky and Doe Doe cabin. The game room was the perfect retreat from the rainy weather and offered hours of entertainment. The hot tub was great too! An added bonus was having deer walk right into the yard as we sat on the back porch. The nearby indoor pool and arcade were lots of fun for the kids too.

It really felt like you’re in the wilderness. There were wild deer right by the cabin every day and we used the fire pit hot tub, games room was great with table tennis, basketball and lots of board games. Only downside was that the fire didn’t work which was a big reason we booked this for Christmas as my 2 small boys were excited about having an open fire and roasting marshmallows. The complex is great with quality tennis courts indoor and outdoor pools, mini golf, fishing on the river etc

Gas fireplace was a big hit. Multiple areas with couches and TV's if you have a large crowd. Beautiful trees although no color change yet. Close to town for festival.
Rick C. Oct 2018
Great location
Loved the abundance of deer on the property. The jacuzzi was great after a long day of hiking. Plenty of space.
TRACEY U. Oct 2018
We loved our vacation in Bucky And Doe Doe's Place.
The cabin is in a beautiful secluded area, very well equipped out. We loved the games room and hot tub. The bucket of corn on the balcony was brilliant, we loved feeding the deer every morning. We did find the bed on the main floor uncomfortable, and the linens could do with updating. Other than that, it was a wonderful cabin, in a good area, close to everything we needed, and wanted to visit.

I liked the decor of the cabin, very fall and rustic. I also liked the roominess, there was plenty of space. And it wasnt too far from activities.
Peggy H. Jul 2018
Cabin was comfortable. Enjoyed watching the deer and the privacy
Nikita H. Jul 2018
Stayed for my birthday. Love the peace and quiet. The house had a ton of amenities. Love the pool and the onsite hot tub. Would come back.
Maurice R. Apr 2018
Nice clean 2 bedroom “dog friendly” cabin in the Coosawattee River Resort subdivision Ellijay GA. Loved all the friendly deer roaming around the property. Loved the hot tub. Recommended.
Shawn J. Mar 2018
We enjoyed the cabin a lot! This place is centrally located in Ellijay to just about anywhere. Pleanty of resturants and places to pick up things nearby. We used it for our home base for the Wine Highway.
Carla S. Mar 2018
We enjoyed our stay tremendously!
Susan L. Feb 2018
From the easy to maneuver circular driveway to 3 levels of living, you can't beat the value of Bucky and Doe Doe's cabin. The owners have put in the finest finishes for light fixtures, gas burning fireplace, high end kitchen and roomy bedrooms and baths. Enjoy their hot tub and game room to unwind at the very safe resort where the cabin sits. Don't miss this gem!

Lugar bonito para pasar unas vacaciones con toda la familia

very beautiful and cozy
Taylor V. Dec 2017
We love Ellijay! This cabin was cebtrallynlocated and very convenient to downtown ellijay! The cabin was beautiful and very practical. It had everything we needed for a weeks stay. The hot tub was an added bonus and so was the fireplace! We loved it!
Georgette G. Oct 2017
This home was a beautiful cabin. Not fancy but very functional for families. While there are only two official bedrooms, there are sleeper sofas and full bathrooms on every level. It was a great value!
Jean S. Oct 2017
Great getaway location from Atlanta. Enjoyed the location and the close proximity to Local attractions. Thank you!
Brittany T. Sep 2017
We came to make a weekend of the BBQ festival, and enjoyed the stay. The beds pillows were slightly loud as they were in some sort of plastic wrap, but the second night I found extra pillows and used them instead. The only suggestion I would have is bring your own tupperware. Other than that it was an amazing cabin and we plan to come back!
Simon H. Aug 2017
The rooms are all very clean with good amenities throughout with good quality beds, bedding and kitchen accessories. We really enjoyed the hot tub and porch chairs
Angela C. Aug 2017
Unfortunately Vacasa has taken over many vacation rental properties. Properties are not properly maintained, and they do not rectify the situation. Owners did a nice job on decor of this cute cabin and were very thoughtful in providing games, activities to enjoy on site. It was wonderful feeding the deer, and we loved the privacy level of this cabin. The cabin was clean when we arrived. Maintenance is an issue.
Anthony P. Jul 2017
Nice cabin for the money with a few maintance problems
Jo D. May 2017
Although the cabin was nice, it was not as clean as I would have liked. Floors dusty and we walked through a couple of spider webs. Water in hot tub had a musky smell. Cabin did not appear to have been prepared for guest. Porch furniture was extremely dirty and dusty. We did enjoy feeding the deer each evening and my boys enjoyed the game room.
Kelly K. Apr 2017
Great stay. Loved the cabin!
Bryony C. Feb 2017
We loved this cabin! The kids loved the game room and the floor plan allowed plenty of space to spread out and enjoy ourselves. All the amenities of home were there and the dogs were well accommodated. For a family traveling with pets, I couldn't have found a better place. I am looking forward to planning my next trip and will definitely try to book here again. The home is very well maintained and feels very homey. You can tell it is loved.
Hyrum T. Feb 2017
Has what everyone wants relaxation, Nature and quiet. Throw the corn to see the deer.
Pavel V. Jan 2017
Overall stay was good
Bari A. Dec 2016
My friends and I came here for two nights and we wish we could have stayed longer. The resort is so close to town and yet you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere in the cabin. It was perfect! The cabin was clean and well-maintained. We loved the ping-pong table and the gas fireplace, and if the weather was warmer we would've gotten into that hot tub. We really loved this property!
Lindsey W. Nov 2016
Very nice cabin. Would return
Bucky and Doe Doe's cabin is a special place, truly a home away from home. Conveniently located, whether you are shopping for groceries or eating out. We love socializing around the kitchen so we did a lot of family time cooking, roasting marshmallows by the firepit (thanks to your well equipped kitchen). Our two teenagers loved the gameroom and helped us all disconnect from our gadgets and reconnect person to person. Our trip to town which is only few minutes away provided us the best antique shopping experience and we came home with some good finds. We loved the outdoor hiking and picnicking facility at Fort Mountain State Park. Overall, it was a memorable trip.
Stephanie B. Oct 2016
I loved this house and the decor is too cute! Hot tub is great! Privacy is great! Deer are abound and corn for feeding is on the deck. I would definitely come again but the beds need to be updated as well as the couches and pillows. I would prefer charcoal grill. Small maintenance issue with hot tub was rectified quickly with friendly maintenance worker. Lots of pots and pans and utensils to whip up a good meal. Would ask owners to stock sugar and basic spices / condiments. Classic game room was awesome with cool memorabilia! Again, great place, few things updated would make me never want to leave!
