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.

We have been very pleased with the dog-friendly cabins! This was my 4th time renting a cabin from Blue Sky; trying a different one each time. Love being on the water! Customer service is always very helpful! The WiFi was out upon our arrival on May 25th (Thursday) early evening. After trying the usual, unplug the router and wait a minute, we called customer service, and a very helpful and lovely young woman (Kristy we think??) answered our call and arranged for a tech to come out first thing in the morning. My daughter had a work Zoom call at 11 am so the rep made sure the tech came out right away to get it all figured out and working out before her call. James, the tech was great and very friendly as well, and figured out the issue!
Big cabin, lots of room to spread out. Great fenced in yard for pups. Big dining table for meals and games and screened in porch and hammocks for relax time!

We absolutely love your home and would love to visit again. Our family has made some great memories here this year. This is a perfect spot. Fun with our parents, kids, grandkids and siblings were around the fire, at the river, in the hot tub and around the table with games. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home. We can't wait to return.

Thank you so much for a great stay! The house is really beautiful!
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!

Everything flowed smoothly, great customer service.
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.
