Last weekend my family and I went on our annual weekend trip to Ellijay where we go on the Coosawattee tubing trip. We went to the General Store and book our trip as we always do. The bus was about 30 minutes late getting there to pick us up. Once it finally arrived, it was a very small bus with... More

Booked a lot in the public campground on the phone, got lousy directions, finding the camp site was the worse experience ever, almost left and went home. This place has 3 entrances and if you go in the wrong one, you'll get lost. This place is huge, its a gated community with RV lots for sale or rent, the public... More

Looking for a place to hike, tube, kayak, swim, chill this is a great place. Bike riding is ok but a lot of serious hills and narrow cars to share the road with. Recreation center is ok. Not glamorous but worthy of spending time. Putt putt glove needs maintenance on the wholes but still fun. General store is quaint and... More

Wonderful place to stay, though most houses are rented by owners, so every house is different. The facilities at the resort are really nice - 2 outdoor pools, 1 indoor heated pool, game room tennis courts, several parks for fishing on the river and also a pond. Overall, it's a really nice place - your vacation one stop shop!

My family stayed a week and really enjoyed the resort. Particularly the river running through the resort as it was absolutely beautiful. The town of Ellijay is a quaint, if not quirky, town that really feels like a mountain town and has several good restaurants downtown and nice shopping. However, we came into contact with several who work there and... More

We stayed in The Highlands cabin, it was a very nice cabin but needs furniture updates asap. Overall the stay was very nice except for our heat not working the first day of our stay and not being able to get gas from the fireplace.

We stayed in one of the one-bedroom units on Fife Villa Court on an RCI timeshare exchange and it did not measure up to the standards of other RCI units we have exchange for over the past 11 years. The units are identified as "Villas" but in reality they are 1982 vintage cabins which most likely have had some refurbishment... More

We stayed in the Dream Catcher Cabin. It exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed was provided. All we had to buy was food. I do highly recommend bringing/buying extra paper towels and toilet paper. Wal-mart is conveniently located outside resort. Blue Sky Cabin Rentals was the company we rented through. Would do it again.

If you like dirty porches with furniture you have to wipe off before you can sit on it and LOTS of pet hair everywhere you will love this cabin. The cabin is beautiful. All of the amenities mentioned in the advertisements are in this cabin. The kitchen is well supplied. We rented both this cabin and Stoney River right next... More
