Home away from home minus the travel time to the place.

I loved the cabin and the fact it was dog friendly. Beautiful place with all the deer and wildlife that was all around the property. Loved being on the river. Would of liked to of had better access to the water. It was our home away from home. We had everything that was needed. I would of rather been lower down the mountain. The drive up down was the only thing negative I would say about my stay. It has nothing to do with roads, they were great. Next visit I am looking for something with less drive time to places. Less curvy roads and turns to get a cabin

The Perfect Family Vacation

Our family is still talking about the wonderful time we had at The R&at River Retreat! My husband and I along with my sister, brother-in-law, brother and my 80 yr old Dad spent a week here. It is an absolute beautiful place. The cabin was very comfortable and the three dogs had so much fun watching the many, many deer that came into the property. The River was so relaxing and each evening around 5:30pm we would watch the geese swim upstream past us and then float back down. We did venture out a few days and the surrounding area of Elijay is the perfect place. The fenced yard was wonderful as we felt the dogs were safe and they enjoyed the yard and porch with us. We would rent here again. We made some great memories!

Family get away

We had a great time in Ellijay! We had plenty of room. The kids loved the downstairs game room. Watching deer walk by was really cool!

The Perfect Respite by the River

Communication, ease of arrangements, info flow and customer service was spot on. Just enough follow up, clarity on all expectations and posted info in cabin also perfect and helpful. The cabin was super clean, super outfitted, and had all the different family members wanted no matter their age or human/dog. The layout was great and the fact the dog could have access to his areas without fuss made it very relaxing for all. The entertainment options were beyond plentiful... from streaming to music to games to pool table/foosball/vintage arcade game... with TVs in every room! But just as plentiful were the nooks and crannies, screened porches with comfy seating, riverside seats, swings and tables to read and veg out... and Dad couldn’t get enough of the sauna and hot tub sessions. The Sauna was super nice and easy to start and use. On a 4 night stay all types of weather was experienced and no matter what the cabin offered complete refuge and relaxation. The dog-friendly rating is a perfect 10 and the copious amounts of deer was very enjoyable for all. From the grill to capsule coffee machines to all kitchen accoutrements... all borderline brand new and all functional. Just nothing to detract or offer improvements on. Had extended family visit for cookout and will definitely return someday. The perfect stay where you are and just be vacation. Very well managed and again, super clean.

A beautiful cabin and location

The cabin was exactly as described on the website. It has been well maintained. It's perfect for family getaways. This kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking accessories needed to prepare meals. There was also several coffee makers in the cabin (both pods and drip). The TV's are all setup for internet streaming, and the internet service is a bit slow so don't expect to stream all TV's at once.
The basement game room and the sauna was a nice addition although we didn't use it much during our stay but I'm sure others will use and appreciate it more. It was nice to have the fenced area for our dogs just off the main deck.
The river-side area was great for relaxing with plenty of chairs, a picnic table and small fire pit. Unfortunately, the bank is a bit elevated from the water and good fishing isn't really possible from the property as there is no path to the water. Make your fishing plans elsewhere (there are plenty of places nearby).
The abundance of deer was a nice surprise. We enjoyed watching them feed on the property during the evenings.
The location is in a gated community which made me feel safe and secure. It's a very large community and the drive to the cabin once you enter the gate is about 10 minutes through some very small and winding roads. The last ~1/2 mile of the drive is on a gravel road and the driveway to the cabin is a very steep gravel driveway. It's a little scary at first entrance but after the first time you will be more comfortable with it.
Bring food! The nearest store for supplies is about a 20 minute drive to Ellijay which has everything you would need. There are great restaurants in Ellijay with just about every type of food you would want.
