Cool Cabins, Tubing, Kayaking, Swimming to Beat the Summer Heat

Summer-- that time of year to beat the heat! And we know just how to do it: tubing lazily down the Coosawattee River, having an adventure kayaking, renting a cabin in the shady and cool woods, enjoying evenings in a hot tub, and frolicking in a refreshing swimming pool. All of this is waiting for you in one spectacular location, the Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay. Whether an exciting kayaking trip or a relaxing float down the Coosawattee River, we have the way for you to soothe that sweltering summer sizzle.

Let’s start with the tubing and kayaking: The Coosawattee River Tubing Company just outside the Eagle Mountain Gate of the Coosawattee River Resort is an hour north of Atlanta and an hour southwest of Chattanooga. A fun-filled 2-1/2 hour inner tube float down the Coosawattee River is all yours with the tube, life vest, and shuttle service to-and-from the river for admission price. Kayak trips are also offered by reservation. Each kayak trip lasts 1-1/2 hours which includes equipment and shuttle to-and-from the river. Trips book quickly so availability inquiry and reservation(s) are advised.

Now onto the hot tub cabins: The Villas at Coosawattee located within the gates of the Coosawattee River Resort features four person hot tub villas with affordable prices, comfortable accommodations, and plenty to do for every member of your entourage. Besides the restful and relaxation of the hot tub villas, the rentals boast peaceful river and mountain views, large decks, as well as cool and shady wooded landscape. Throughout the property, abundant amenities are easily accessible, such as swimming pools, fishing ponds and parks, picnic pavilions, sunning decks, and more.

Next is time to let you know about three pools inside the Coosawattee River Resort that are sure to cool down even the hottest this summer. The first is the indoor Junior Olympic-sized pool with 8-feet at the deep-end and a large shallow end for the small ones at the Recreation Center. The pool is enclosed with a sunning deck outside the sliding glass doors. A generously sized kiddy pool is also available at the Recreation Center. The second pool is Pool II which is the smallest and quietest of the pools with a 6-foot deep end. This spot is a calm and peaceful place to relax. The Teen Center features the third pool which is three to five feet deep throughout. The location is family friendly with kids from one to one hundred enjoying the sun and fun. A kiddy pool is also available for toddlers and babies. Usage is included with accommodations rental with The Villas at Coosawattee inside The Coosawattee River Resort.

With all of these cool and refreshing options, beating the summer heat is a synch! With a short drive up to the North Georgia Mountains, the sweltering heat can be chilled with some water fun.
