Cherokee shoals log cabin delight

Spent 5 days at this magical cabin. So relaxing sitting on that porch in the rocking chairs, looking and listening to the music of the river, and feeling the world and it's problems disappear.

Looking forward to next time!

Our recent trip to Ellijay and Cherokee Shoals was everything I expected and more. From the area, to the cabin with the rushing river just feet away, this trip was so relaxing and enjoyable. My husband and I especially appreciated the fenced in yard for our dog. We didn’t have to put shoes on, put the dog on a leash and find a flashlight to let him out at night. The fenced yard is right off of the screened in porch, which made things so easy! Thanks to Ingrid, with Sliding Rock Cabins, for your guidance in helping me choose the perfect cabin!

We love Cherokee Shoals

This is our favorite SRC cabin because of perfect location and amenities. It appeared this time, however, that there had been a new stair railing installed up to the second floor. This construction left heavy dust build-up, as well as random small nails left about, and some trash in kitchen container with used paper towels that had been used for staining. However, this was a one-time glitch, and will certainly not prevent us from returning to this wonderful cabin.

Thanksgiving 2017

We had a wonderful time! We stayed at Cherokee Shoals in 2015 and loved it so much that we booked it again 2 years ahead. The cabin is wonderful, and has all the comforts of home. The location of this cabin is perfect, as the sounds of the rapids in the river are a huge plus. It is extremely well appointed and has everything you would need. The beds are very comfortable, as well as the couches. This cabin is definitely one of our top favorites at Sliding Rock in our 7 years of coming here. We tried to book it for next years Thanksgiving, but unfortunately it was already reserved, so we hope to visit another time. Thanks Sliding Rock and the owners of the cabin for a wonderful time.

Heaven on the River

Love the cabin. Will be back. Was supposed to stay 3 nights but only got to stay two due to tropical storm.

Perfect Serenity!

We have stayed at several pet friendly cabins and this is by far our favorite. The river sings it's soothing song the minute you step on the porch and settle into the rockers. The cabin is well furnished, and dinners on the screened side porch are wonderful. We have even seen deer come down by the screened porch and also crossing the river. Though you can see other cabins, we have always found it quite and peaceful. Love to sit out by the fire pit with our favorite wine. This is our absolute FAVORITE land vacation spot!

Roads were terrible.

We have been coming to this subdivision for several years. The roads were the worst we have ever seen them. Huge dips right at the bottom of the hills where you need to keep your momentum up. We will most likely not be returning.
