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.

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!

This property looks right out over the flowing river. It is a wonderful mixture of mountain cabin and farmhouse and gave us an overwhelming sense of relaxation.

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 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.

We had such a relaxing vacation! We fished, relaxed, did puzzles, shopped, went in the hot tub and sauna, went on the train in Blue Ridge, cooked, had campfires, and hung out on the porch hammock swings watching the deer. We also went zip-lining and horseback riding in Blue Ridge. . We met so many friendly locals! We had so many laughs and made so many great memories here. This vacation was exactly what we had hoped for. We relaxed, relaxed, and relaxed some more! The beautiful house was so very comfortable and cozy and we used every inch of it. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some yummy dinners! We were super impressed with Rivershire and look forward to coming back, only next time we will stay longer!

50th birthday celebration brought 6 ladies together for a weekend at Rivershire on the River and it couldn't have been better! It is such a tastefully decorated and accommodating property. The birthday girl wanted to live there forever. Even the rain couldn't dampen our spirits staying at this beautiful home. The sauna, the hot tub, swinging on the back porch, gathering downstairs in front of the fire, upstairs in front of the fire... The only things we didn't get to enjoy were the fire pit, Adirondack rockers and the hammocks due to the rain. The one thing we would have put to good use was another bathroom upstairs but we made do... the birthday girl got the master bath on main. We had a great time shopping and eating lunch in Blue Ridge, which is an easy 15 minute drive from the cottage. Next time we'll check out the local wineries. We decided on our first day to make a stay at Rivershire an annual event.
