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.
