Affordable Summer Fun in the North Georgia Mountains

Summer—that time for a ROAD TRIP! And with this economy and high gas prices, you need an AFFORDABLE road trip! And we know just how to do it: renting a cabin nestled in the mountains where you can float down the river in a tube, frolic in refreshing swimming pools, and enjoy evenings in a hot tub. All of this is waiting for you in one spectacular location, The Villas at Coosawatatee in Ellijay. Whether you opt for adventure or relaxation, we have just what you’re looking for… and for an inexpensive price.

With your stay at The Villa at Coosawattee, you have so many things to do right outside your door. Between all of the resort’s amenities, six river parks, tubing and kayaking, and outdoor concerts WITH rental rates as low as a hotel / motel, you can’t beat the value of The Villas at Coosawattee. All units feature full kitchens, living rooms, decks, and spacious bedrooms. Check out these rental rates:

++  One bedroom cabins on the river start at $85.00 per night
++  Two bedroom rentals on the river start at $105.00 per night
++  A-frame units start at $125.00 per night
++  Three-bedroom villas start at $120.00 per night.

Rentals may feature Jacuzzi hot tubs, fireplaces, scenic views, proximity to one of the many river parks, and more! Every rental has access to the three resort’s pools, miniature golf course, tennis courts, fitness center, and playgrounds.

Also, just outside the resort's Eagle Mountain gate, The General Store at Eagle Mountain is a little spot that’s big on fun.
  • The General Store offers biscuit breakfasts and a new summer menu, which is a neat way to start your day or put together a picnic along with river when staying at The Villas at Coosawattee.
  • You can also rent a tube and float down the Coosawattee River! With the $15.00 admission price, a tube, life vest, and shuttle service to-and-from the river are provided. Kayak trips are also offered for $25.00. Each kayak trip lasts 1-1/2 hours which includes equipment and shuttle to-and-from the river. All trips book quickly so availability inquiry and reservation(s) are advised.
  • The General Store also features Pickin’ on the Porch, a series of outdoor concerts (admission is free although bands accept donations). The concerts are on the 2nd and 4th Saturday night of each month with a variety of local entertainment and music from gospel to blue grass to Old Time Rock 'n' Roll. The General Store will be open  for your dining and munching convenience so bring your lawn chair, roast some marshmallows at the campfire, and enjoy slower days of the old general mountain store.
With a short drive up to the North Georgia Mountains, The Villas at Coosawattee is a value that can’t be beat this summer.  For that sweet cabin, villa, or A-frame in the mountains, please give The Villas at Coosawattee a call between 8am & 5pm EST at (706) 276-1075, email at or visit us on the web at And be sure to join us at The General Store at Eagle Mountain for tubing, kayaking, swimming, and relaxing in the hot tub!
