Large, dog-friendly cabin w/ private hot tub, shared pool, and mountain views!

Experience true Southern comfort at this beautiful three-story Georgia cabin. Tucked away in the quiet hills of the southern Appalachians, this dog-friendly home is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a private hot tub, shared pool/tennis courts/game room, and two-story wrap-around deck.

This rustic vacation rental is located about 10 miles south of downtown Ellijay, on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest. As part of the Coosawattee River Resort, you'll get to enjoy the best of both worlds: a vacation that includes all the luxuries of a private resort while still providing you with the solitude of your own private cabin in the woods.

The house is lined with a spectacular, double-level wrap-around porch that looks out into the trees. Enjoy the view from while relaxing in the hammock or private hot tub, or head out for an afternoon hike in the surrounding woods. In the evenings, take advantage of the dark mountain skies by stargazing or watching the fireflies blink in the warm summer air. There's even a screened-in portion with a wood-burning fireplace, so you can savor the outdoors any season of the year.

The comfortable interior has an airy living area with sofas, a TV, a DVD library, and a gas fireplace, and a second den downstairs has a pool table for friendly competitions. Cable and free WiFi are provided, but cell service can be spotty, so make sure you've got those phone calls taken care of before you arrive!

The large kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances to make all your meals a cinch. You'll have plenty of choices for seating, be it a quick bite at the breakfast bar, a formal family dinner at the table, or a summer barbecue out on the deck.

This four-bedroom, three-bathroom home sleeps eight people comfortably. The master bedroom is located on the main floor and is furnished with a king-size bed, a TV, and a large dresser, as well as a luxurious private bathroom with an oversized tile shower. Two additional bedrooms with queen beds are located upstairs, next to a shared bathroom and a cozy loft with a reading area. For a small fee, you can bring two dogs along, so everyone gets to enjoy the getaway!

Located in northern Georgia about 34 miles south of the Tennessee-South Carolina tri-state line, this home is perfectly situated for you to explore the unique beauty of the mountain South. Ellijay is home to the Georgia Apple Festival, which is held every October and features freshly-pressed cider and apple tastings by a dozen local orchards.

Just north, meanwhile, lies the Chattahoochee National Forest, which contains almost 867,000 acres of spectacular scenery and more than 850 miles of recreational trails. Whether your ideal outdoor adventure involves backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking, or fly-fishing, you'll find it here, among the trees, hills, and streams of southern Appalachia.

If you're looking for a spot to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying a comfortable stay, this wonderful cabin has it all. Book your reservation today!

The Wilderness Lodge was the perfect home away-from-home for our party of 8, aged 6 months, to 70+ years. There was something for everyone in this clean, well-equipped, nicely decorated home. Our favorites were the themed bedrooms with comfortable beds, the cozy loft and reading area on lower floor, screened porch, jacuzzi, pool table, and hammock. The sunsets were gorgeous and different every evening.

One of my biggest concerns before renting the Wilderness Lodge was the drive to the lodge. Some reviewers had commented on its remote location. I am grateful that everyone I spoke with at Vacasa and Coosawattee River Resort answered my questions and we rented the property, even though I had some concerns. Once we arrived at the resort, the Wilderness Lodge was approximately a 15 minute drive on a well paved, not too steep road! To me, there was nothing scary about these roads! Further, depending on where we were going for our day trip, there were 4 different gates that we could use to exit the property. After arriving at our cabin just once, we were able to enter or exit without needing extra directions. In addition, once outside the resort there were lots of stores for anything that may be needed, and great sights to visit in the surrounding area (downtown Ellijay, cities of Blue Ridge and Dahlonega, Fort Mountain and Amicalola State Parks, and tubing right at back entrance to resort)

Vacasa was great to work with from our initial reservation through our departure, making the trip virtually care free. Even though we couldn’t use it, I loved the fact that they contacted us to let us know that early check in was available, and that for a small fee we could check out late.

Our family is already talking about returning to Wilderness Lodge in the future to make more wonderful memories!

Beautiful house, very nicely furnished. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. I would recommend this cabin. We enjoyed seeing all the deer that roamed the resort. Fun week, even though it rained every day.
Karen C. Jul 2019
This home was clean, good space and master on main with huge shower. We enjoyed the screen porch, quiet street and the community. We had everything we needed but you will need to bring foil, wrap and baggies. Well stocked kitchen! Great memories!
Chadnezzar F. Jul 2019
This home was amazing. Everything from a blender to coffee filters were provided. Every room was perfect and our family felt comfortable and safe. The view was beyond amazing and we will return.
Liz H. Apr 2019
This was quite a find. The views amazing and the lodge itself has everything we needed!

Lovely open floor plan. Wonderful amenities within the resort and a well-kept, well appointed home.
Anne A. Jan 2019
Great for families!
Ramona M. Jan 2019
We loved the living room, dining room and kitchen being an open space surrounded by large windows bringing the outdoors indoors!

This cabin turned out to be the perfect getaway. We were sad to see rain in the forecast. We had planned to go fishing and/or hiking. Even though we got rained out all weekend, the stay was still very enjoyable. The television/internet services were all available and functioning, and the outdoor (screened in) wood burning fireplace was fantastic. This was a group of people who LOVE a good campfire. We were looking forward to sitting around a firepit together. The rain put a little bit of a damper on the weekend, but not much! Thanks to the outdoor fireplace, we got almost everything we wanted out of our vacation.

The bedrooms were decorated well (we loved our Fisherman's room), and the beds were very comfortable.

Thank you so much for sharing this home!

We stayed a week at Wilderness Lodge outside of Ellijay, GA and loved it! The house is beautiful..... loved all the nice furnishings and accessories! And the outside fireplace was a great place to spend evenings.
Karin S. Oct 2018
Loved the layout of the home. Very cozy. Plenty of space for everyone.
Bernadette A. Oct 2018

We went to Ellijay with several extended family members to celebrate my husband's birthday. The home was spacious, lovely, and clean. We had a great time. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer!
Donna B. Jul 2018
We loved the cabin! The view is excellent and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect spot to spend the 4th!
Jeff P. Jul 2018
Really enjoyed the house. Clean and very nice. Met the Vacasa manager when we checked in. Nice to see local people running the units. She was very nice and helpful. My wife suggested adding a few more pots and pans. She made due but I remember her comment. Really enjoyed the resort. We went to the pool twice. All rooms were well cooled and beds were firm but slept good. Verizon cell works great all over the house.
Mom, Dad, 3 grown sons and there wives. Plenty of room lots to do.

Carl E. Jun 2018
The views are amazing!
Rebecca S. Jun 2018
Kitchen was big and fully stocked with everything you need to cook for a group! Hot tub and pool table were a huge hit and the sunsets were gorgeous. I absolutely loved the screened patio at night and early in the mornings.
Patrick B. Apr 2018
Loved the views from the deck. Spent most of the time at the outdoor fireplace table and enjoyed every minute of it. Location is very private and quiet, feels safe. I rated te cleanliness 4 out of 5 stars as we found a couple of cobwebs, stains on the carpet, and coach blankets needed to be washed. But these are minor items really. The place is fantastic overall! Thank you, Vacasa!
Jennifer B. Feb 2018
The house was very clean and all of the amenities were updated and shiny new!
Alvaro F. Feb 2018
Loved everything here, well recommended
Shelley W. Jan 2018
I booked this cabin months ago and was just praying that the weather would cooperate. Luckily it did and the surprise party was just that, a complete surprise. This cabin comfortably accommodated 6 women and we were all very pleased with our stay. The only thing I would suggest is replacing the couches on the main level as they are not comfortable at all. I would stay here again and would certainly recommend this cabin to others.
Ernestine T. Jan 2018
Our little 2 day get away was PERFECT!!! The cabin is lovely,
Alejandro P. Jan 2018
Good size interior, very nice exterior. I really enjoyed grilling on the outdoor porch.
Darryl R. Jan 2018
Beautiful secluded location that’s quiet and perfect for just getting away.
Traci P. Dec 2017
Very large 4 bedroom house that was very spacious with plenty of reading/resting spots. Basement very cold compared to rest of the house but staff was quick to respond to our call. Reccomend.
Gene G. Nov 2017
We stayed over thanksgiving and it was perfect! The property is near a few other cabins, but it's the end of a cul de sac and your views are off the woods and mountains. It feels secluded. There's a great hot tub, fully stocked kitchenware, outdoor and indoor fire place too! The only complaint was the basement where a bed and bath are located are unbearably cold in fall/ winter time. We bought space heaters from walmart and that solved the problem, but be prepared to do the same. Otherwise, it was peaceful and beautiful and clean.
Traci L. Nov 2017
Very clean cabin with breathtaking views!! We were only here for 4 days, but we really enjoyed our time. Saw deer every time we drove to the cabin from the front gate. Kids loved the game room on the bottom floor. Would definitely return.
Alli S. Nov 2017
My stay at 290 Fleur Lane #1681 was great! The view is so beautiful and I like the layout of the house. I was pleased that the property is pet friendly so that pet lovers have the option of bringing their furry friends. The property is so serene. I would love to stay at this property again in the future.
Carolyn J. Oct 2017
If your looking for a place to escape the hussle and bussle of the city this is the perfect place to go. Peaceful, awesome view from the cabin I will for sure be returning.
Susan G. Oct 2017
The layout for this house was nice for 4 couples. Plenty of space to spread out. Loved the porch with fireplace! Plenty amenities!
Stephanie C. Oct 2017
My family loved our long weekend in Ellijay. The wilderness lodge is a great cozy cabin with a spectacular view off the wraparound deck! The screened in porch with fireplace was one of our favorite spots. The cabin is located in the back of the resort and is quite a drive so we suggest stocking up on groceries and enjoy staying in if you don't want to do a lot of driving.
Adam C. Oct 2017
We decided to get away last minute for some R&R and this home was the PERFECT spot. Located in a beautiful resort community the home is tucked away at the end of a road on top of a mountain with AMAZING views. You can also hear the river below. We really enjoyed the fireplace on the porch in the evenings. We took many walks in the community and saw tons of dear. The town of Ellijay and Blue Ridge and very charming. Ellijay has great Antiques! This was a wonderful getaway and we are sure to return in the future.
Jenifer S. Sep 2017
Absolutely beautiful views, we cannot wait to come back under better circumstances so we can explore a little more. (We escaped Hurricane Irma)
Crimson R. Sep 2017
I rented this cabin as a surprise for my husband's 30th birthday and we brought 6 friends along with us. Everyone was very pleased with the quality of the cabin, the comfort and coziness of the space, and the professionalism with which we were treated. Definitely want to stay here again!
Brett T. Jul 2017
The cabin is in a private location that is a great location. The community is great and the cabin was well equipped with everything we need. I would definitely recommend renting this cabin again.
