Description

Not your typical log cabin, this beautiful and unique property has all the feeling of a cozy cottage, but plenty of space for your group to relax and enjoy life on the river. Nestled on the banks of the Coosawattee River, you get the feeling of stepping back in time as you enter. This home is modeled after a historic Appalachian farmhouse with shiplap walls, whitewashed ceilings and wide plank pine floors. With a gourmet kitchen and ample seating, the kitchen and great room is undoubtedly the heart of the home. Open up the French doors to the large screened porch and let the sounds of the river wash over you while you watch the birds and deer visit. Stroll down to the back yard, where you’ll find a hot tub, cedar barrel sauna and firepit area with Adirondack chairs. Enjoy the private beach located right on the river, where you can launch your kayak, go tubing down the Coosawattee or just play in the sand. When the day comes to an end, enjoy a movie on the terrace level with a gas fireplace and game room. Every bedroom is beautifully decorated with tranquil decor that will quickly dissolve your stress away. The cabin is located in a private gated community just minutes from downtown Ellijay and 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. Rivershire Cottage is now pet friendly, with a fenced front yard, orthopedic dog bed and dog bowls for the main and terrace levels. If you are looking for a cozy cottage with lots of space for memories to be made, Rivershire Cottage is your top pick.

This is a beautiful, spacious house, very well appointed! The owners were very responsive, and ready for us despite our last-minute booking when another reservation had to cancel! There are neighbors close by, but it was very quiet during our stayIm not sure anyone was there then. Indoors: tons of beautiful living space, very comfortable beds, great showers with shampoo/soap thoughtfully provided, excellently appointed kitchen, a screened porch to die for overlooking the river...again, beautiful space! Outdoors: hot tub and sauna great for chilly March nights, fenced area for the dogs, fire pit on the sand... very lovely spot right on the river. The house was close to neighbors, but I dont think anyone was staying in the houses near us while we were thereit was very quiet. We saw lots of deer, and the birdsong is wonderful.

Just left a stay at Rivershire Cottage in Ellijay for my friend's bachelorette weekend. We could not have asked for a better weekend! Rain was in the forecast but we saw only a light mist for a few minutes. This cabin was the perfect accompaniment to truly an incredible weekend. It was immaculately clean, well-furnished, and every single bed was so comfortable that it was like sleeping on a cloud. It was pretty chilly this weekend (down in the 20s - this Florida girl is not accustomed to that!) but we loved being able to use the fire pit, hot tub, and sauna. This home overlooked a river and had a screened-in patio that made mornings so incredible! We had the best time in Ellijay and Rivershire Cottage was a big reason why! No one wanted to leave. Thank you for taking such great care of a wonderful home and providing us with the best weekend we could ask for!

We will most definitely be back again. It was a much needed relaxing, laid back weekend by all. Would love to come back in warmer drier weather. One of our couples will be moving to Florida soon so this was a last get together for awhile. Thank you for the use of your cabin & for thinking of everything needed. Your decor is beautiful and has given us some great ideas!

We had planned this trip months before we always do a special family something every Valentines Day.. This one was incredible it was bittersweet because just one day before we were to come my sweet 95 year old grandma passed away. I was by her side. Coming up here was so peaceful and we celebrated her life together as a family in this beautiful place, in nature, by the river! We drove down for her funeral and came back to reflect how grateful we are to be in this beautiful cabin and place! We didn't go anywhere, but that was the point & this place was a cabin resort.

We roasted smores, played bingo, open gifts, went walking, and had stick fights! Me and my family really enjoyed our stay here! Was very beautiful! We will always remember this very special Christmas. The kids had a great time outside and in the game room. The decorations were a very nice touch to the place and really gave it a Christmas feel. Overall our stay in a cabin in the mountains was awesome. Will definitely recommend the city of Ellijay to anyone who wants to visit Georgia at home.

"We had many plans upon arrival, but realized everything we needed was right here at the cottage! We ate, slept, danced all night, went in the hot tub, went on long walks, sat around the firepit, and enjoyed the company of the best girlfriends! We relaxed, relaxed, and relaxed. It was a magical weekend, and will definitely happen annually!" Girlfriends weekend - Atlanta April 2018
