This cabin was absolutely outstanding! My family of 8 all agree that this is by far the nicest cabin we have ever stayed at of this size. It is located in a beautiful, peaceful area that is still close to nearby Ellijay, GA (and this is a cute town to visit!) Highly recommend this cabin

The team is professional and personable.
The property with the gentle flowing river was lovely and enjoyed by all. The Riverhouse was comfortable and spacious enough for 8 guests. Wonderful memories were made there and we would stay there again in the future.

It was right on the Cartecay River. A fire pit was beside the river as well. Convenient to tubing and kayaking as well as the historic district of Ellijay. Parking and turning around was good. The road near the cabin has some nasty potholes that are hard to miss unless you pay close attention. Blue Sky Cabin Rentals folks were awesome!!! Very responsive and provided us with a lot of information for the area.

What a beautiful home - it has been lovingly thought out and maintained. We are in the midst of looking for a home up here and this is the 4th we've stayed in "visiting" the terrain and areas - we absolutely love this the best! Beautiful home, beautiful setting, convenient location. Great place to make memories.

Blue Sky Cabin Rentals has served our family well on two different occasions. Everyone I talked to was most helpful and understanding of what we needed.
A great property. Riverhouse is wonderfully situated right on the Cartecay River. Everything we needed was included in the furnishings.

What a magnificent way to spend Thanksgiving! Riverhouse is comfy yet elegant and placed so wonderfully on the Cartecay River where one can hear the noisy relaxing water. The four gas fireplaces were an amazing treat especially the one in our bedroom. The autumn setting was so perfect and our guests left with joy in their hearts and turkey in their tummies! Hoping to return soon.....ever so grateful to the owners for making our vacation one to remember!

The office staff is great! Very friendly and helpful in trying to locate the cabin that suits your needs. The cabin was comfortable, convenient to stores and attractions. We enjoyed the gas fireplaces and brought wood for the firepit. It is a very nice cabin.
