“Life is better at the river” is the mantra at River Overlook. Its unique setting high above the bend of the Ellijay River and end of the road privacy begs one to relax and rejuvenate. Come on in and drop your bags, kick off your shoes and begin to unwind instantly. This beautiful two-bedroom, two-bath log cabin with loft has been remodeled and redecorated in 2019 for your relaxation pleasure and comfort.

Dine on the lovely outdoor screened-in porch or languish over early morning coffee on the deck outside your bedroom door. Enjoy the river from the multiple decks and landings or take the 69 steps down to the river’s edge. Notice how the water ripples over the old Cherokee Indian fish trap or take a nap in the hammock, cast a line, or make s’mores at the fire pit. In the evening, recharge your batteries in the hot tub while you count the stars above or snuggle under the quilt and drift off to sleep in either of the two new comfy king-size beds. The memories you make at River Overlook will make you believe life truly is better here.

    Perfect Cabin for Family Getaway

    This was a perfect cabin for our family getaway! The cabin had everything we needed for our 5 night stay and was very clean. We enjoyed fishing from the dock, making s'mores by the creek, catching lightening bugs, and watching deer roam the woods while we soaked in the hot tub. The kids were never bored as their was always something to do at the cabin. Board games, puzzles, pool & foosball table. It is very close to shops, gas stations and restaurants. Looking forward to staying at the River Overlook Cabin again!

    River Overlook

    From the time we arrived we were very pleased with our cabin. The views were perfect! The entire cabin was very clean with the exception of someone leaving a pepper in a bowl in the kitchen cabinet. There was plenty of space and seating for four people throughout the property. The dogs really enjoyed playing in the river. I would most defiantly return.
