This is truly a fantastic mountain cabin. We've been coming to the area for over 25 years and even owned our own cabin in Helen, but this mountain home is amazing! As comfortable and clean and well appointed as any cabin we have ever stayed in. We will surely be back to this property!

Cherokee Shoals is amazing! We had the most amazing "socially distant" week ever. I think we have found our new favorite cabin. The river being right off the deck is the icing on the cake to this perfect hideaway! Very clean, very quiet, warmly decorated, a well equipped kitchen and comfy beds. Most of our time was spent in the rocking chairs outside watching the river flow by. We even had deer visitors who crossed the river ! We will definitely be back.

Kick back, Relax, Social Distance, and Enjoy the river sounds!

Well stocked, clean cabin, with the sounds of the river 24/7. What a wonderful relaxing trip that happily also included out 2 large dogs. Will recommend to anyone who asks! We read, played pool, saw deer, played cards, and cooked great meals on the gas grill and in very well stocked kitchen. Hope to come back post virus to hopefully enjoy some the the interesting shops and restaurants we drove past in Ellijay.

Perfect place for an escape!

Four friends needed some time together after self isolating for weeks during the pandemic. We chose this location because we had the rushing river, a covered deck, and a screened porch for card games. We were isolated, but not without neighbors in case of emergency. The fenced backyard for our pups was an added plus when we weren’t able to take long walks. The cabin was clean, the beds were comfortable, and we had all the kitchen equipment needed. The town of Ellijay is quaint and entertaining, (having visited in prior times) however, we stayed at the cabin our entire time because of Covid 19 concerns. We will book Cherokee Shoals again because it provided the perfect experience we needed.

My husband and I had a great time for our 16 year anniversary. The cabin was super clean, right off the river and views were beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. My only suggestion would be to have newer beds. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much!
