Rushing River Lodge is one of those special cabins where the whole family can find their own special place. Whether is that quiet little reading nook you've been looking where you can unwind and relax your mind or the more social firepit where stories are told and smores are made in the evening, this cabin has them both. However, the lodge has a lot more to offer!
The kitchen is completely outfitted with ALL of the equipment and dishes you will need to make those special meals as well the simple ones too. If your a coffee drinker, then you are in luck. There is a nice coffee maker and the expresso machine so you make your mornings even more glorious in these mountains. Imagine that steaming mug of java while you sit on the deck and watch the river flowing below, all the while the sound of the rushing rapids washing over you. It will surely be one of the best cups of coffee you have ever had!
Once you have created your wonderful meal, you will have a fantastic table and chairs where everyone can gather to enjoy the fruit of your labors. This tastefully decorated dining room makes enjoying meals with family and friends a joy. The playful moose on the wall will be the talk of the hour while memories are made and flavors enjoyed.
The living room boasts an amazing fireplace that stretches from the floor to the ceiling! 22 feet of fireplace rock that immediately draw the eye and warm the heart. The season for building indoor fires is from October to April, and the firelight dancing on the walls of the cabin while it is chilly outside and the Fall leaves dress the mountains, will be magical. And as if that wasn't enough, you can sit on the soft and cushy couches to enjoy the smart 50 inch TV with a fantastic sound system.
There are three bedrooms and all are appointed nicely in a rustic chic motif. Please refer to the pictures since words cannot do the decor justice. There is a king, a queen and two bunks. The linens and towels are extremely comfortable and the towels are pristine and white. All of the linens are washed commercially so you know they are spotless, sanitized and clean. There are TVs located in the rooms with the king and queen size beds.
There are two bathrooms and both have brand new, large style commodes. Additionally, as you can see the photographs, they are tastefully decorated and well lit. You can see well in these bathrooms so getting ready to out for a wonderful dinner in downtown Ellijay or Blue Ridge is much easier.
Here in the mountains we do a lot of outside living, and this lodge is no exception. The master bedroom has an incredible, private balcony that opens up through a set of glass French doors and overlooks the Coosawattee River. The sound of the rushing river below carries right into the bedroom.
There is a wraparound deck on the main floor that includes a grill, ample seating, a hammock and yes, you guessed it, a wonderful hot tub to soak away all of your cares! However, what is really special about this deck is that it overlooks the Coosawattee River below as it flows around some big boulders making a whooshing sound as it goes. Beautiful! The living room opens up to this deck via a set of glass French doors. Perfect for opening up the inside to the outside.
There are some rustic and rugged stairs that will lead you down to the edge of the river where you can sit in one of the chairs and just look, listen and unwind.
