Coosawattee River Resort

Coosawattee River

The Coosawattee River Resort is located four-tenths of a mile off Highway 5 South, on Highway 382 W, just minutes from the town of Ellijay, a very quaint, friendly, relaxed town. This section of Northeast Georgia is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain range about equal distance from Atlanta and Chattanooga.

Coosawattee Gated Community

The resort is a gated community, encompassing over 8,500 acres. There are about 7,000 lots with an average lot size being 1/2 to 3/4 acre. The variety of terrain allows a potential buffer of steeper lots next to level building lots, thus insuring your future enjoyment of the open natural mountain atmosphere. The Coosawattee River and Mountaintown Creek flow through the property which along with there being fantastic fishing (trout and bass) rivers, allow many other related activities including tubing, rafting, kayaking and canoeing, etc. We also offer a fee-simple lot ownership in a restricted area for recreational vehicle campground. Each campground lot has a shared septic, county water and separate power. The resort offers a full exercise room, two outdoor pools, an indoor recreation area including a full exercise room, pool, game room, snack bar and entertainment area as well as a stocked fishing pond, multiple tennis courts, badminton and basketball courts, five river parks and countless old trails to explore. In addition there are many green areas as well as general public use areas set aside for your enjoyment. There are over 300 miles of roads in the resort, with four controlled entry gates.

There is every style of house in the resort, from conventional construction to log construction, for full time use or as a vacation/weekender. The minimum square footage allowed varies from 900 to 1050 depending on the section of the resort in which you choose to build. Manufactured houses are not allowed in the resort. We have other properties to support this type of home. There are Covenants and Restrictions which the Property Owners Association has in place so that all may equally enjoy their home. The Property Owners Association meets once a month with each owner having representation. Annual dues of $599.00 per lot are assessed to cover the cost of operation of the resort. The resort has county water, power, telephone to each lot and cable is available to selective areas.

Coosawattee River in Ellijay, GA

There are three basic types of building lots in the resort. If you enjoy the river, you will find the Coosawattee River changes from a very deep, quiet and serene river to a river with white water rapids, wide and shallow, with noise and action. Perhaps your choice is sitting on your deck in the cool deep woods, with hardwoods and pine, complete with rhododendron, mountain laurel, and dogwood. In some areas you can still hear the rush of the river in the background. Or, perhaps your preference is an unbelievably fantastic mountain view from the deck of your home, a carpet of national forest spread beneath your feet, running for miles, culminating in the distant Blue Ridge Mountains.

We cannot properly describe the beauty, the clean air, the quiet, the serene beauty of eagles circling in the sky, or the number of stars at night. All of which are here waiting for you. And best of all, this is less than an hour and a half from a city. We look forward to assisting you in your search for that perfect property.
