RE: Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay:
There are lots of private cabins/ homes to rent in Coosawattee that are managed by various companies, but the Coosawattee River Resort does own and operate villas, cabins, timeshares as well.
www.thevillasatcoosawattee.com is the villa website, www.coosawattee.net is the main Coosawattee website and has links there to the General Store and the Tubing Company. There is a 4 story inflatable water slide at the General Store and that is where you go for tubing, kayaking, Pickin' on the Porch, and some great lunch specials. There are a ton of other amenities too: fishing pond, walking trails, camping, playgrounds, basketball, tennis, an indoor pool, 2 outdoor pools, etc.
Although it does get hot in the area during the summer - there are several places and ways to cool off like tubing down the river or going to one of the pools.
