Harley's River Retreat
Message about our housekeeping during these difficult times: we want you to know that we are wiping down all flat surfaces, kitchens and bathrooms with disinfectants in our cabins.  We are also using one set of gloves per cabin, thereby preventing any germs going from one cabin to another.  We also recommend that you bring your own cleaning products so that you can clean according to your own standards if you think it is needed and raise your comfort to the highest level.

Harley's River Retreat, named after the owner's wonderful dog, Harley, is a beautiful cabin located in the amazing and fun filled Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay, Georgia.

Set among the towering hardwoods of the North Georgia mountains, this cabin is serene, relaxing and designed to help you relax, unwind and...  have tons of fun!  The cabin has a stream flowing behind it and the Coosawattee river is short distance away next to the park.  There are very few places that rival the special beauty and comfort that Harley's River Retreat provide.

A pet friendly cabin (with a dog run), the cabin boasts rustic elegance in a cozy space.  The two king beds with wonderful bedding will be the perfect place to lay your head after a day of fun in the mountains and after having had that perfectly cooked meal on the grill.  Of course, no mountain day is complete without the perfect and long soak in the hot tub.  Take a look at the pictures and see yourself enjoying all that Harley's has to offer.  We know you will fall in love as so many others have.

The Coosawattee River Resort has something for everyone. From fishing and hiking to swimming and playing in (and on) the river, this resort was made for creating memorable moments. As a guest staying at Harley's River Retreat, you will receive a Guest Pass for all the members of your party and these will get you into all of the amenities, so don’t wait another minute. With so many things to do in the resort, you might not find time to do anything else!

Note about Pets: this property allows a maximum of two dogs and the fees are $50.00 per pet per stay.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out prior to your stay.  The pet policy is strictly enforced.

Interactions were easy and prompt. The staff was very friendly and helpful
The property was nice and equipped fairly well. Loved the sounds of the creek and being near the river. The outdoor fireplace was wonderful and having a dog yard is very convenient. The outdoor spaces are great. We generally stay in cabins that are not quite so close to neighbors. The online photos should probably give an indication of the neighbors. I expect in summer they are not so visible though. Still we enjoyed it even thought it felt more like a neighborhood and less like being in the woods.

Beautiful house! Right on the river with babbling creek that runs behind the house! Such a great space to enjoy being outside. The place was also immaculate! You would never know they allow dogs!

It was a perfect location for our family and the family dogs. Its located at the end of the road with the river a short walking distances away. Perfect for walking the dogs. the house for us was the perfect size not to big or small. My husband grilled every evening we ate breakfast and dinner on the very shady deck. Don't miss out on using the HOT TUB! And the creek was very relaxing as well. And the deer roam the neighborhood so unexpected. You really should take advantage of this little cabin in the woods. You will have neighbors but they were very quite on our visit. I hope to go back some time.

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!
My family and I loved this cabin! Kelli and the Cabinations team were so accommodating to our needs. We had an extended stay due to our own home having to have water damage repaired. The cabin was the perfect spot for us and our 3 dogs to wait out the repairs all together. We were able to relax even with all the upheaval. The area is stunning and quiet. We couldnt have asked for a better stay.

Thanks for being a great host.
We really enjoyed this stay. The cabin is exactly what you expect of a mountain cabin. The creek is nice to listen to at night as your going to sleep if you open the windows. We saw many deer everyday right outside the windows. Very clean and very well taken care of. Great location to the river for a day of floating. I have absolutely no complaints, however, having propane in the tank for the grill would of been convenient. The communication with this host was fantastic and Kelli was very quick to respond. Perfect for the pups!

This is a great getaway for those who are looking for a comfortable location to relax with your favorite people and pups. The outdoor areas are the perfect settings for unwinding and good conversation next to a fire. It's a 15 minute drive to the local Starbucks and Chick-fil-A for your convenience.

Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality.
I cannot say enough nice things about our stay at Harleys river retreat! It was beautiful and peaceful and cozy and relaxing. We spent time sitting around a different fireplace each night. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening wine on the porch. My dog Linus curled up in the dog beds provided and chewed his antler on the porch and played fetch by the river. Everything we needed and wanted was there for us and we could have happily stayed forever. We loved every moment we shared together at the cabin and it was such a sweet and special time for my mom, my sister, my dog, and I. I travel with my dog frequently and I have never stayed in a place that was truly so furry-friend accommodating. Thank you for making him so welcome along with the rest of us!

This cabin is wonderful, especially for pet owners. There are plenty of enclosed spaces for dogs to run around. Also right beside a park which was perfect for walking the pups. Cabin was clean, spacious, and had plenty of things to do!

Amazing little cabin. We saw deer daily and loved using the fireplaces and hot tub. Would love to come back during the summer next time for a change of pace.
