River Overlook (formerly River Rendezvous)

Check Availability

“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.

Anniversary Getaway

Great cabin! Quite and secluded. Beautiful river views.

by christina chardon on Sliding Rock Cabins
The most peaceful location ever!

We didn’t want to leave!!! If you want a beautiful, peaceful, private setting, for vacation while listening to the sounds of a soothing river then this is the place for you! We slept in the upstairs bed which was very comfortable. It rained most of our trip so we didn’t get to sit down by the river but relaxing on the screened in porch was just fine for watching and listening to the river. We saw wild turkey and deer everyday around the property. The cabin was perfect for the two of us and our two furbabies who also enjoyed sitting by the wood burning fire. We loved the fooseball table in the loft as well as checkers, there were plenty of other games to play as well. The only negative thing I can say would be the water pressure in the kitchen sink made it a little difficult for washing dishes but there is a dish washer as well. We will definitely be back to River Overlook.

River Overlook is so amazing! The recent updates made a good place so much better. We have stayed at several Sliding Rock Cabins properties but this one is our favorite - we love the location at the end of the road and close enough to the river to hear it as it goes by. The recent changes (dishwasher, new sink, better lighting, new furniture, etc.) make this cabin even more comfortable than it was. It is a great place to relax and recharge.

River Overlook

My only complaint was it was 65 steps to the river but we managed. Not a big deal really. Awesome cabin as all have been that we rented from Sliding Rock
