THE PROPERTY Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: King Bed | Bedroom 3: King Bed | Bedroom 4 (Bunk Room): Twin-over-Full Bunk Bed | Bedroom 5: King Bed 'Cartecay River House' will quickly become your favorite home-away-from-home. Spend your days floating in the refreshing waters of the Cartecay River and your nights lounging on one of 2 furnished decks, enjoying your favorite cocktail while watching a tranquil Georgia sunset! Begin each day by sipping your morning cup of coffee in the mountain-themed living room and watching as the space slowly fills with natural sunlight. The cozy living room boasts tall vaulted ceilings, a flat-screen cable TV and a stone gas fireplace that’s perfect for those chilly Ellijay evenings! After a morning swim in the river, cook up lunch for the group in the fully equipped kitchen, outfitted with a 4-burner electric stovetop, beautiful granite countertops, cooking utensils, and a 4-person dining room table surrounded by windows. Following your lunch, you have a multitude of different ways to spend the afternoon, ranging from exploring the surrounding forest to playing a game of foosball or pool in the game room! When everyone starts to get hungry, head out to the deck to get started grilling dinner on the gas grill while enjoying a freshly prepared cocktail from the wet bar. There is no better way to finish off an adventure-filled day than roasting s'mores around the outdoor firepit or soaking in the private hot tub and gazing up at the star-lined sky! Retreat to one of 5 comfortably furnished bedrooms when you start to feel your eyes get heavy. Each of the bedrooms offers luxurious 310 thread count sheets to ensure you get a fantastic night's rest! THE LOCATION Head out to east Ellijay and explore the local eateries when you're not dining at 'Cartecay River House'. Poole's Bar-B-Q is only 9 minutes away and is a local staple for traditional southern-style BBQ, best known for their smoked chicken and famous Pork ribs. If you're visiting in the springtime, drive 5 minutes to R&A Orchards to sample a wide range of delicious fruits and pick out your favorite produce to cook at the house! Any animal lovers must drive 24 minutes to visit the Build an Ark Animal Rescue center by Carters Lake, where you can spend your day meeting, petting and feeding the resident animals. No trip to Ellijay is complete without visiting the famous nearby town of Blue Ridge, which is just over 20 minutes away. Visit Mercier Orchards, North Georgia Mountains’ top apple orchard, featuring various U-Pick events, a tasty Bakery & Deli, Market Store and Farm Winery. If the weather permits, relax with an al fresco meal at Toccoa Riverside Restaurant, serving up delicious american fare and gorgeous lakefront views. Don’t forget your hiking boots!
