Description

This incredible North Georgia Mountain setting provides the best of both worlds, privacy on a wooded lot with the rushing waters of the Cartecay below. There's a huge out-door patio with fireplace and an outdoor eating area. The ideal spot for everyone to gather and take in the breathtaking scenery of the Georgia Mountains. Does chilling in the hot tub with a beverage of your choice sound like your ideal way to let all that city stress melt away? Well, you're in luck, this over-sized hot tub is situated with a perfect view of the river below and sparkling stars of North Georgia above. There's an additional deck situated below that over-hangs the Cartecay. Feel free to throw in a line and snag a trout or two or maybe sit around the fire-pit to roast some marshmallows.

Step inside this wonderful little Georgia Mountain Hideaway where you will find all the luxuries of home in a gorgeous mountain setting. Fully equipped kitchen plus a seating area where you can look out the window and view the rushing Cartecay River below. The family room has a wood burning fireplace encased in a floor to ceiling rock wall. The perfect spot to kick back and relax with a nice glass of wine and enjoy the mountain decor and ambiance. You'll find two comfy beds, a King and a Queen, where you can get a restful night's sleep after a day of hiking, kayaking or maybe horseback riding through the spectacular mountains of North Georgia.

  • King bed on main with en-suite bathroom
  • Queen bed on main

If you are up for a bit of exercise, hike down the 140 steps that lead to the large dock over-hanging the Cartecay River. The is a perfect spot to launch a kayak, throw in a tube to float down the river or try your hand at some trout fishing. Be sure to bring your Marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate to make S'mores around the fire-pit. What a wonderful way to end each day with the North Georgia stars hanging over your head and the brilliant reflection of the moon gleaming off the river.

Located just 15 minutes from downtown Ellijay, you will have the opportunity to do some antique shopping, dine in some wonderful restaurants or maybe just stroll around the little square. Be sure to check out the famous Apple Orchards of Ellijay, including Hillcrest, R & A and BJ Orchards. They all have delicious fried pies, muffins and apple cider donuts.

Reviews

I Cannot Say Enough GREAT things about River Bluff Retreat! 
Google Review - August 2018 - Abigal J

This quaint cabin felt like a home away from home! My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. It is very clean! The beds are very comfortable and they have great sheets! The kitchen had good supplies for cooking when we decide to stay in. We loved sitting on the swing or chairs on the deck and enjoying the view of the mountains in the distance through the trees and the sounds of the Cartecay river. Which we also loved that you could see from the hot tub patio area. It was so romantic to have the outside fireplace going while relaxing in the hot tub and listening to the river. The river is wonderful to float down in a tube or kayak. This is very centrally located within Ellijay. There are beautiful hiking trails all over the area! Downtown Ellijay is a very short 10 ish minutes away with the cutest shops and the best little places to dine! It is also very close to Blue Ridge! Maybe 25 minutes. Blue Ridge also has wonderful shopping and has an amazing Spa named Serenity in the mountains! There is also great places to eat downtown Blue Ridge. Our favorite thing that we experienced while staying at the cabin was going to The Vineyards that are just a short 10-minute drive away! Cartecay Vineyards and Chateau Meichtry. They both have music on the weekends and outstanding wine! We spent 2 whole days of our honeymoon at these vineyards! The cabin was wonderful to come back to and we enjoyed the AC in the Georgia Heat;) We can't wait to go back with family to show them our new favorite Vaca spot!!
