Dog-Friendly Forest Cabin with 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!

The resort has updated the way guests can use the amenities. The guest will be responsible for purchasing passes at the POA office. Passes are $10 per person per day. They will no longer have an amenity pass at the unit to use to gain access.

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property.

What a great homebase for our family vacation! With 4 preteens it's not always easy to find accommodation that meets everyone's needs. Bucky and Doe-Doe's gave everyone space, indoor games, and outdoor exploration. Nothing was fancy but everything was clean and comfortable. Perfect spot for our family!
Stuart S. Apr 2022
Cabin has lots of room. The Game room was nice for the kids!

Everything you need to have a perfect weekend at a cabin!
We had an amazing time.
Kalani A. Sep 2021
We enjoyed our stay here very private spacious cabin the kids enjoyed the game room in basement and hot tub. We had everything we needed. We got to see deers out back it was nice. Great location to town and stores close by. Grill was great. Central air and heater in one kept us cozy.Would recommend to family and friends. Thank you for a great stay.

It’s a beautiful cabin at the end of a dead end road. You have tons of privacy with beautiful mornings and afternoons by the deer grazing in the back yard. We saw deer three of the days we were there. The cabin is well equipped for every need. The game room area is stellar. We only have two suggestions. First, you definitely need to consider replacing mattresses in master bedroom; not comfortable at all. Second, although the cabin was very clean, we saw roaches every day we were there. You may want to invest in having the cabin fumigated. It’s a beautiful cabin and we would definitely consider staying there again.
Manager response:
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. We understand that sleeping preferences vary widely and we are sorry to hear that the beds were not well-suited to your sleep preference. We will certainly keep your comments in mind when planning updates for the home. We have passed your valuable feedback regarding the pests along to our house manager, so they can correct this for future guests. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope we have the opportunity to host you for another enjoyable stay.
Heather M. Jul 2021
Our kids loved the cabin! The game room, hot tub, loft area and back yard full of deer every day were such a treat! The amenities were incredible and location was close to so many things!
Lisa A. Jun 2021
We had a fantastic time in Elijay, the cabin was perfect. Plenty of space and very functional. The basement full of games/hot tub was a hit with the kids. The back porch with a spectacular and peaceful view was a hit for the adults. We will definitely be returning!
Carolyn H. Jun 2021
We loved the house and especially the basketball game and ping pong table. We had lots of family game time and evening hot tub conversations while looking for deer in the yard. House was clean and comfortable for our family of four, and we would love to bring another family with us next time since there was plenty of room!
Danielle C. Apr 2021
😍 OMG this cabin was absolutely amazingly beautiful! We live in the city so it was refreshing to have seclusion but still be close enough to others! My family definitely needed that breath of fresh air!
Scott A L. Apr 2021
We really enjoyed everything that was offered. Quiet and very close to everything we needed.
Peter S. Apr 2021
I have already reached out to Vacasa, as I am not sure who's responsibility this is. Upon our arrival, there were crumbs and filth all over the kitchen counter. We wanted to cook dinner, and seeing that it is equipped we were shocked to find the condition of every pan/pot utensil in the house filthy, half broken, and I am not talking residue from a dishwasher, dirty. The kitchen cloth was filled with pet hair, and so old it amazes me that paying this much still means there cannot be proper investment. The place is much smaller then what the pictures make it look, the beds are outdated, very old, uncomfortable and squeeky. We had friends drive for 13 hours to spend time with us here, an absolute let down in hygiene. None of the actual amenities are open, so dont book and think your kids can have fun, we had a 3 year old with us, and right outside the house just getting to the fire pit area is a falling hazard due to how steep it is. I am definitely going to continue to fight about the hygiene, you are asked to put your dirty towels in the bath, and start a load, I doubt anyone ever came to clean up, because the previous people's load were still in the dryer. The toilets, and bath basins were cleaned, but that was it!! And this during Covid! This place should not be called a resort at all.
Manager response:
Hello Peter, We are very disappointed that the issues you fced during your stay were not addressed in a timely manner. We are very sorry that some issues were out of our control at the time due to COVID. We do try to be transparent on the information for our listings,
Robert F. Oct 2020
The cabin was great! The town was great! We will defiantly be back.
Sandra T. Sep 2020
Spacious, comfortable and great view of the deer. Loved having two porches
Cheryl S. Sep 2020
Everything is as presented and the wildlife in the area did not disappoint. During these strange times of Covid-19 the property was as clean as you would expect. I wish we could have spent more time here and I can assure the property owners that we WILL BE BACK! Thank you for sharing your home.
Marilyn S. Aug 2020
We loved this cabin. Our teenage grandgirls loved the ping pong, darts & basketball game. The cabin is very private and quiet. There are other cabins on the road but you only see woods out back & to the sides. Each floor has a full bath. Well equipped kitchen. Deer come every morning & evening to be fed. There was about a cup of corn at the cabin. I would bring more.
Michelle B. Jul 2020
We loved the coziness of the home! It was situated at the end of the road which provided a quiet, private stay. The cabin itself felt like home away from home. They had all the necessities and such fun decor! We had 3 kids along for our family trip and they absolutely loved the property. The home had lots of things to keep the kids entertained and three lovely porches for lounging. The hot tub was wonderful and easy to operate. The home was clean and well kept while maintaining it's quaint charm. We would certainly stay there again.
April K. Jun 2020
This was a very nice cabin. The backyard view was my favorite. I loved the scenery while sitting in the hot tub; even got a glimpse of a few deer. There’s also a basement with a tv, couch, and plenty of games. Perfect for people of all ages. The beds upstairs were just a little uncomfortable but other than that, I would strongly recommend this cabin.
Erica C. Jun 2020
Plenty of room and lots to do
Tammy H. Jun 2020
The cabin was very nice, clean, and had everything that was needed
Walenda B. May 2020
Great home to get away for your family trips.
The view off the balcony into the backyard is great plenty deers to watch. The location was great enjoyed my stay house was very cozy and relaxing.
Michelle J. May 2020
Loved the big pitches, fire place and hot tub! First morning we saw 6 little deer's! Unfortunately the beds / boxspring could use an update, bit that comfy and quite loud when just one person turns around.
Kimberly H. Feb 2020
We loved the location and the reasonable price but the basement was cold, the master bdrm tv sound did not work, and some of the furniture needed updating. We also loved that the cabin was pet-friendly.
Manager response:
We appreciate your thoughtful feedback! The master bedframe has been tightened to help eliminate any noise, and we are in the process of replacing the TV. Thank you!
Elizabeth T. Jan 2020
We vame to this beautiful home seeking quality family time and that is just what we got! This home met all of the needs for our family, we enjoyed the games in the basement, firepit outside and an added bonus of feeding the deer corn from the back porch. We enjoyed some local sights visiting waterfalls, apple orchards and driving through the mountains.
Fabiola R. Nov 2019
The stay was better than I expected! It was in a relaxing and calm area with friendly neighbors. The bottom floor was filled with games and a jacuzzi which we loved! The ping-pong table was a hit for us! Pet friendly!
Keith H. Oct 2019
Cozy cabin close to town but far enough away
Phillip W. Sep 2019
This was a beautiful and relaxing cabin. We enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again soon!
Jacob G. Sep 2019
House was clean, plenty of kitchen utensils and comfy home
CHRISTY W. Jul 2019
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.
Robert K. Jun 2019
My kids loved the game room
Franklin O. Mar 2019
This cabin has a great man cave downstairs! Driveway is a little tricky!
Jared C. Feb 2019
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.
Daniel G. Dec 2018
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
Rita P. Oct 2018
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.
Jaymie L. Oct 2018
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!
Minerva R. Jan 2018
Lugar bonito para pasar unas vacaciones con toda la familia
Pam M. Dec 2017
Nice little cabin in the woods. Lots of deer. Enjoyed hiking the woods and neighborhood. Loved the town of Blue Ridge.
Victor A. Dec 2017
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!
