Lakeview lodge with two decks, pool table, hot tub & shared swimming pools

Plan the group vacation you've been waiting for at this five-bedroom Ellijay lodge, a spacious North Georgia retreat with a private hot tub, a pool table, two large decks, and gorgeous vistas of Carters Lake and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

This cozy property is part of the Talking Rock Creek Resort, which sits just three miles from the marina at Carters Lake. You'll also be 19 miles southwest of Ellijay and 20 miles northwest of Jasper, offering easy access to shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation.

Surround yourself with exposed wood in the great room, which features lofty beamed ceilings, several plush sofas, and a wall of windows that overlook the Carters Lake Regulation Reservoir. Build a fire on crisp autumn evenings, use the WiFi to post a few photos, and watch a DVD on the first of five satellite TVs.

Prepare dinner as a family in the open kitchen, where you'll find granite countertops, modern appliances, and three bar stools for your vegetable-chopping sous chefs. Sit down for homemade meals at the six-person dining table or the adjacent four-person bistro table.

Spend your days lounging on the wrap-around deck, cooking on the gas grill, and gathering at the patio table for al fresco lunches. The Talking Rock Creek Resort also offers two seasonal swimming pools that are open from Memorial Day until Labor Day, a fitness center, and a fishing pond for your enjoyment.

And in the evenings, you can take a soothing soak in the private outdoor hot tub, gather for ghost stories around the firepit, or head downstairs to the family room for a game of nine ball on the eight-foot slate pool table.

With five bedrooms and three full bathrooms, Cherokee Overlook can accommodate as many as 16 guests. On the main floor, you'll find a master suite with a queen bed, a TV, and a bathroom with a jetted tub and walk-in shower, as well as a sleeper sofa in the great room.

The upper level has one king bedroom, one queen bedroom, and a bathroom with a tub/shower combination. On the lower level, you'll find one bedroom with two twin beds, and one bedroom with a double bed. A set of twin bunk beds and a futon are in the family room, and there's also a bathroom with a tub/shower combination on this floor.

Additional amenities include parking for a boat trailer and a private washer/dryer to keep your outdoor clothes clean and fresh.

Thanks to its wonderful location within sight of Carters Lake, this North Georgia retreat is ideal for boating enthusiasts, anglers, and all lovers of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Rent pontoon boats at the Carters Lake marina or spend the day fishing and hiking along the 62-mile shoreline.

You'll also be just 23 miles south of Fort Mountain State Park, which is known for its gorgeous trails and an ancient rock wall believed to have been built by early American Indians, and 38 miles from Amicalola Falls State Park, where you can catch a glimpse of the tallest cascading waterfall in the Southeast United States.

Begin planning your next reunion or group getaway today - this wonderful Ellijay cabin will give you a vacation you'll never forget!

Very private. Close to Carter Lake. Good hiking in the area. House was clean and perfect for our family. View of the lake was a little obstructed from trees on the lower floors but could easily be opened up with a good trim. Kids enjoyed the hot tub!

The Good:
The house is very spacious with lots of beds and room to spread out. Beds were comfortable & bathrooms were decent with good water flow. Nice towels. The view is lovely. Great decks. It was a serene setting. Stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher & washer/dryer all worked well. There is a great blender and a large electric griddle. Decent kitchen set-up made meal making easy. The boys loved the pool table. Hot tub was solid. Vacasa is a professional agency with high standards that wants to treat their guests well. This was obvious and appreciated.

The Not So Good:
Many overhead lights didn't work or needed light bulbs so it was rather dark. Directions were practically impossible. All 4 vehicles got lost. Basically, just go to the main gate, turn around and take the first two rights. Good luck with that.
The floors creak and there were ants and stink bugs (which doesn't bother me but some in our group were "bugged"). The worst thing was the horribly intermittent wifi. It may have been the weather (wifi is by satellite) but was impossible to even have a phone call or send a text for 80% of the time there. I had some basic computer work (send/receive emails) that I could not do at the house so I had to drive 45 minutes to a cafe to get internet - each day - which wasn't fun. In this day and age, this is truly unacceptable for a vacation home, even a remote one like this. If the internet provider was changed, I would return.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you enjoyed the amazing view! Our local manager will replace any missing or broken light bulbs, we recommend guests follow our specific driving directions since GPS isn't reliable, the home will be treated for pests, and the internet is in good working order. We appreciate you taking the time to leave a detailed review and we hope to host you again soon!

Spent the weekend there with some friends for my birthday and we had a blast. Cabin was very very spacious with lots of places to sleep. Hot tub was a great size as well. The place is super secluded which is great and the view from the living room/kitchen is gorgeous.

Only complaint would be the awful directions. We spent about 50 minutes driving around trying to find it. So for future renters, take your GPS to the address provided. The GPS will take you to the main gate... where you will NOT enter. You will turn around and make a right on the main following then another right at the next street up. House is right before the culdesac.
Enjoy!!!!!

The house was basically ok but there could be lots of improvements. The bunk beds and double bed in the same room were very creaky. Under the beds was not clean. There were no wine glasses. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
We appreciate this guest leaving feedback. We have followed up with our housekeeping team, and they will pay closer attention to these details moving forward. The wine glasses have been replaced. We look forward to hosting this guest again soon!

Very roomy. Private. Beautiful area.

House was very homey and inviting. All you can need from a home love the bonus: location, view, hot tub, pool table and privacy. Will be back in the future.

This is an amazing cabin and is in a really great location with zero other homes in sight! Plenty of room and lots of towels ect that you will need. There were exactly 3 things that were not up to par.
1st, there is not a broom/dustpan so cleaning the floor during our week stay with kids was frustrating.
2nd, the internet was garbage. I was getting about 500kbs while being the only device connected. It was a DSL hook up so i'm not sure what the issue was.
3rd, it was tough to find at first because GPS does not take you anywhere near it. If you follow GPS you will need to ignore it when it asks you to turn into the main gate entrance. Instead go about a qtr mile up the road and make the first right. You'll see just a gate (no parking or any structures) use the passcode provided minus the # to get it to open. The cabin is at the end of the road, only drive way on the road.

I really hope this helps others!

I loved it. No broom, and beds in basement we're a little uncomfortable. But other that that, we really enjoyed the privacy.
Dena M. Dec 2017
Cabin was very spacious with 3 levels. Nice granite in kitchen and baths. Pretty pine floors and walls. Bedding and linens were poor quality and made our stay less than comfortable.
Joyce L. Nov 2017
Please update the directions to the cabin, it took us almost 30 minutes and then the office had to assist us.
Lakshmi J. Oct 2017
Our group enjoyed the home very much. The kids enjoyed the hot tub and the game room. The fire pit was a great place to gather around in the evening. The house was comfortable and beautiful. Thanks.
Sharon S. Oct 2017
Beautiful cabin in wooded area with lake/mountain view from the upper deck. Lots of windows provide a great view of the outside. Ample seating in great room and downstairs game room for group together time. We used this location for a ladies church retreat and absolutely loved it.
Mark S. Sep 2017
A very comfortable house, surrounded by beautiful trees!
Tom A. Jun 2017
The house was very nice and in an attractive location. We only stayed for a couple of nights but it was perfect for our needs. I would certainly stay here again and could really only cite two negatives. One is that it is definitely a remote location as it seemed to be at least a 20 minute car ride to anything. Not a huge deal but definitely meant that you needed to plan ahead. The other thing was that it is difficult to find. You have to follow the written directions provided exactly. GPS will not find the street address and there were no street signs or house numbers that I saw. I would hate to try to find it in the dark.
Donna C. Apr 2017
Large home with lake and mountain view!
Ashley N. Apr 2017
Wonderful house with great amenities....You will never have to leave the house. Pool table, hot tub, fire pit, plus lots of bed sleeping options.
Zach Y. Jan 2017
Located away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life, this beautiful and well-equipped cabin served as the perfect get away for our group of friends just wanting a nice weekend to hang out with each other. The staff of both Vacasa and the property were responsive and friendly. I would highly recommend a stay here!
