Description of the Ellijay vacation cabin rental
This luxurious, spacious, custom built cabin sits 50 feet from the rushing white water of the Coosawatee river on the south side, and 50 feet from a babbling brook with water falls on the east side. There is a nature trail beside the brook and provides a beautiful short hike. The river is not deep, and could accommodate some waiting, fishing, rafting, or kayaking.
Beautifully designed and decorated, there are heart pine floors through out. The great room has a stone fireplace, comfortable leather furniture, satellite TV, stereo and windows that provide a fantastic view of the river. The fully equipped kitchen features a stone island with cook top and hickory cabinetry. The two master bedrooms each feature a queen size bed, and deck. The master on main has an enclosed (glass French doors)sun room with an extra twin bed, good for small children who need to sleep closer to parents.
The loft has a queen size bed and two singles, with a balcony and a sitting/game area. The two bathrooms have a oversized walk in shower and soaker tub. Both private bedrooms each have their own screened in porch. The game room features a custom bar with refrigerator and sink, pool table, satellite TV and stereo. The 8'-0 wide wrap around covered deck provides a great place to grill a meal and spend time enjoying the view and sound of the river, even if it rains. Last but not least, enjoy the hot tub under the stars on it's own elevated deck and beautiful view.
This place has it all. Come enjoy what nature has to offer. Truly a mountain paradise retreat!

Wonderful Cabin for Family Retreat

November 23, 2015

Can not say enough good things about this cabin. It was a perfect place to get away as a family to relax and enjoy time together. Even though it rained our family enjoyed watching the river rise throughout the week. We enjoyed watching the geese fly in just about every day on the river. The walking/hiking path was greatly enjoyed. The porch and swings were a great. The cabin itself was beautiful and spacious. I would highly recommend River Rock Cabin.

We stayed here for 4 days and the cabin was absolutely beautiful. The beds and the pillows were very comfortable. Everything was very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. There were no bugs as some other cabin reviews complain of bugs or scorpions. We felt at home here and loved waking up to the sound of the river and taking the trail walk behind the home. The location is perfect and totally private. If you want to relax, unwind, and have a nice time, this is a great place to stay. I very highly recommend this cabin and will go back without any doubts. Thank you Mr and Mrs Deloach for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Loved the cabin and location right on the river. Close to Ellijay and Blue Ridge. Cabin is very spacious and comfortable. The porch was a great feature to relax and enjoy the scenic flowing river. There is allot to see and do in the area or just enjoy being at the cabin. Great escape from the city.

This place is absolutely amazing! Definitely way more than a cabin. Exceeded our expectations by far! Will be back very soon and going to tell all our friends! Came out for rest and relaxation with my friend from work. Fished, laughed, grilled out, rented a boat, drinks at the fire pit, hot tub, pool table all next a huge 50 ft. Creek. More that we could have imagined! Just 2 girls in the woods but felt safe. Brad the owner checked on us and there were cabins near by but still secluded because of the beautiful foliage and trees on the creek and around the property. I recommend this to everyone. Simply Amazing!

This is a one of a kind setting for a cabin that exceeded our expectations. The views from various rooms , porches and swings are tranquil and changing every second. The cabin is equipped with every convenience you would want and more. Sitting in the hot tub with that incredible view is pure joy. The shops and downtown are close by, but we preferred to spend most of our time enjoying the cabin and river. Fishing is right at your front door, and the geese make for lots of entertainment. We highly recommend this cabin to anyone that enjoys nature and needs some relaxation with all modern amenities away from it all.

We just returned from our visit to River Rock & can't wait to go back. The setting is so peaceful; the cabin is top notch. We saw a LOT of deer, a black bear, a river otter, wild turkeys & an eagle. Our 5 grandkids, aged 2-11, really enjoyed climbing on the huge boulders, fishing & floating down the rapids in the river. There were easy trails right behind the cabin that followed a little stream thru the woods. We loved swinging on the covered decks, while listening to the river. Every evening deer would be out in the middle of the river, eating the vegetation. That sounds weird, but there was an island with grasses growing on it. The cabin was tastefully decorated & equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable! The kids hung out in the gameroom. There was even a private office/studio for my son-in-law to work a few hours each day. Altho the cabin is secluded in this gated community, it was very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores & Walmart. It was such a pleasant surprise to find a really nice cabin that accepted dogs. Our golden retrievers had a ball & didn't want to come home. We highly recommend River Rock.

Our family of 5 has not had a true vacation for at least 10 years. This was our vacation/celebrate husband finish his doctorate degree finally! We had a great relaxing time! Had fun walking up the river and floating down. The boys didn't catch a lot of fish (a few small bass) but that didn't take away from the fun ;). They all enjoyed playing pool as well as using the hot tub a couple of times. We took our car for the trip to save gas but it's a 4 cylinder; therefore, didn't handle the one steep hill with very much grace but she made it. The hardest time was when we left and the trunk was loaded. You won't regret renting here. Very peaceful. Thank you!

The Cabin at River Rock was amazing!! It was delightfully decorated, spacious and the kitchen was equipped with every appliance you could imagine. The cabin was tucked away on a dead end road which was very private and quaint. The sound of the water rushing down the river was very relaxing. My kids and mother enjoyed fishing just feet away from the cabin. The two hugh wrap around porches provided alot of space for my entire family to have there own space. I suggest you get all your supplies before you get there because you will not want to leave. We really enjoyed our Christmas vacation in this cabin. I can't wait to book my next trip!!!

This is one of the most beautiful cabins we have stayed in. My family rents a cabin every year, sometimes a couple of times a year, and this is by far one of the nicest cabins we have stayed in. You have everything you could want. Good weather or bad, this cabin is comfortable and beautiful. Cold nights you can stay inside and play pool or relax in the comfy living room next to the fire and read a good book or watch a movie. The river is beautiful and right out the door. We didn't catch any fish (we didn't try that hard) but just sitting by the water on the huge rocks was heavenly. It feels like you're a million miles away but it's actually just a short ride in to town for dinner and shopping. We would highly recommend this place to anyone.

The property was very nice. It was spacious and had everything we needed for a peaceful mountain vacation. It sits on a large section of private land that encompasses over 300 miles of small gravel roads. This cabin is literally in the middle of the woods, and right on the river. There is a path that leads into the woods just behind the house... Large enough for atvs or dirtbikes. The property is the very last one at the end of a dead end road, so theres no traffic driving by at all. There are a couple properties close to this one however much of the view is blocked by foliage so theres plenty of privacy. The relaxing sound of rushing water, really creates peaceful background noice at night. Plus there are three different swings scattered around the three levels of porch. The only problem i had was the terrain to get to this property is very windy, small steep gravel roads. Make sure you have a vehicle that can handle the steep grades and the loose toad conditions. Other than that... The place was awesome and our two dogs, bear and buddy, had a great time too!

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful, peaceful cabin. We spent the week with our college and high school age kids. They loved the pool table and enjoying the river right out front! It was such a pleasure to rent and the owners were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. Looking forward to planning another trip!

Perfect!!!! The lodge was fantastic. It is located in an amazing resort on a beautiful river. The lodge itself was even more beautiful than the online pictures and the owners were very nice and helpful. We did not get tired of seeing deers every day and hearing the tranquil sounds of the river waters. If you are simply looking for a relaxing peaceful vacation this is the place and if you are looking for a vacation filled with the opportunity for excitement this is the place. In other words, it has it all. We can't wait to return to this amazing place in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. Thank You. Kind Regards, The Fernandez Family

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. The house was wonderful and had everything we needed! We sat out on the deck in the mornings for coffee and by the fire at night! The river was beautiful and we could not have asked for better weather! We will be recommending this house to all we know that would like to spend some time in the mountains. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home! A bit of advice if you want to float down the river do not drop in at the Legion it is almost a 6 hour float from there to the house. Very relaxing but long!
