Hawk's Nest has some of the best views in the resort. Perched high up on the side of the mountain, you have a view of both the Coosawattee River and long range views of the mountains from 2 decks that span the back of the house. It is located in Coosawattee River Resort, which is a 6500 acre gated resort in some of most beautiful mountains in North Georgia. Everybody says that the pictures don't do justice when it comes to showing the view.

Large windows allow natural light and scenic views from inside or outside. Out on the decks you can hear the Coosawattee River as it flows over the rapids and meanders through the valleys.

This is a great place for a couple to enjoy and relax with a jacuzzi tub in the spacious master bath, or for entertaining family or friends with sleeping for up to eight people. The back yard is fenced in for those who want to bring their pets and allow them to enjoy the outside.

Building a fire in the outside fire pit is great for relaxing and enjoying. You can make smores and grill hotdogs while making lasting memories.

The house is decorated with a lot of thought put into the mountain experience. Vaulted wood ceilings and a floor to ceiling rock fireplace make this an ideal getaway. The master bedroom on the upper floor has a queen bed and a large master bath with a Jacuzzi tub and shower. There is a loft with a queen bed. The main floor has a full bath and a bedroom with a twin and a fold out roll away bed. The basement has an area for entertaining a family or a kids getaway. It has a queen, and bunks with a full, a twin, and a half bath. The basement opens out to a full length deck that has as spectacular a view as the main deck.

To stay connected(or you don’t have to) there is WiFi and cable TV on 3 flat screens. There is also a good selection of family friendly movies for small kids and adults.

Hawk's Nest is also easy to get to, with all paved roads.

The Coosawattee River flows through the resort for 11 miles before it forms the headwaters of Carters Lake. There are many amenities to take advantage of while vacationing in the resort. There is an indoor heated Olympic sized pool, a outdoor Olympic sized pool with a kiddie wading pool, and a smaller outdoor pool. There is a well-equipped gym, game room, tennis courts, and basketball courts. Several parks along the Coosawattee River have picnic tables and playgrounds.

In the summer you can take a tubing trip down the Coosawattee (and tube past the house) with the resorts tubing company.

About Gina Hancock

We are Gina and Brian and our regular home(when we are not in Ellijay) is in Fayetteville, Ga. We have a daughter Amber (22) and a son Michael (20).

Why Gina Hancock chose Ellijay

We love the North Georgia area and particularly the Ellijay area due to the beauty and convenience. It is the closest to metro Atlanta as you can get and still be in the mountains, and in a different world.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with this house when we first saw it. How could we pass up this beautiful property with it amazing views. We thought it would be a great property to share. It is near our other rental property and is in Coosawattee River resort with all the amenities you could ask for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay. Being close to the deer and turkeys was such an awesome thing. We will definitely be back. Can't wait to tell our friends about it. Such a beautiful display of God's handwork. Thanks for a great place.

Beautiful cabin, wonderful place to spend your time!

  • 5 of 5

We had booked a cabin in Cherry Log, once we got there we found that the water heater was broken. Given that we had driven 9 hours, we had to scramble to find something else rather quickly. Brian and Gina were beyond accommodating. They helped us make reservations fast and let us rent their beautiful property. We enjoyed the fire pit, the jacuzzi fun and loved that our family of four could sleep in the same room yet in our own beds. The property is pristine with a lovely fenced in back yard which was perfect for our dogs. We had the best time and know that this isn't the last time that we will visit Elijay

Wonderful setting!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Hawk's Nest ... very homey, well equipped, fantastic views, one night we counted 24 deer on our way through the resort! Steep stairs (up and down) kept our dogs confined to the main level, which meant one of us stayed on the couch each night ... but that wasn't too bad as that couch is really comfy. The owners were very responsive; wish we could say the same for the staff at the rec center, who were rather distant, at best. Roads in & out of the resort aren't for the faint of heart --- best bet is to arrive before dark, at least the first night. You'll enjoy Hawk's Nest Overlook!

Owner's Response: Glad your stay was enjoyable and thank you for staying with us. I just want to address the couple issues for people reading this review. - The road to Hawks Nest is a 2 lane paved road the entire way. It has a lot of curves (you are in the mountains), but nothing I would consider "not for the faint of heart". Only thing I can think is that written directions weren't used. A GPS will take you on a scenic tour of the resort. - As far as the steps, the steps going up stairs are standard pitch. Our 4 lb Chihuahua goes up them without a problem. - As far as the rec center personnel, most have been very accommodating from my experience. Must have been an off day. Thanks for pointing out the positives, the fantastic views, the wildlife, very homey, and well equipped. We do try to be responsive to our guests. We want your experience to be more than expected when you stay with us. Thanks again!

Ellijay is the historic county seat of Gilmer County, and the Apple Capital of Georgia. Mountain vistas, cold clear rivers, antique shops, and biking. It is the host of the Apple festival each October. Ellijay has the convenience of a super Walmart, Ingles, Food Lion, etc. Dining is also good with Longhorns, Ruby Tuesdays, Shanes Rib Shack, to name a few. There is also almost any fast food restaurant you could ask for such as McDonalds, Wendy's, Sonic, Subway, Hardees, Taco Bell, etc. There are also many local restaurants which are favorites to locals and visitors alike. Ellijay is a good central location for all the activities you look for in a mountain vacation. Carters Lakes is only 15-20 minutes down the road with recreation areas for fishing boating, picnicking, playgrounds and swimming. Blue Ridge, Dahlonega, and Amicalola Falls State park are a short distance away. Come and get lost in paradise!
