Cartecay River Retreat
Come experience the peaceful tranquility or the awesome enjoyment of the Cartecay River in the spectacular North Georgia Mountains. There is no better way to spend a few days or full week hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting or tubing down this pristine river named by the Cherokee Indian Tribe. The Cartecay River Retreat is a gorgeous three bedroom, 3 bath cabin situated right on the Cartecay River. Relax in the 5 person hot tub on the lower deck overlooking the river, and enjoy listening to the rushing water and sounds of nature. An outdoorsman’s paradise, the Cartecay offers some of the finest trout fishing in the region, or cast your line into the nearby Coosawattee and Ellijay rivers or the 3200 acre Carter’s Lake, all within 10-15 minutes of the cabin.
Happy New Year 2013!! Kids and adults loved it!! Downstairs were the bunks, pool table and ping pong table are is perfect for the kids. We brought the New Year in with Southern Cooking with good friends and we leave behind my family's southern cornbread recipe.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in this beautiful cabin. It was super fun and very nicely furnished for the whole family. We would love to return in the future, maybe in the summer.

Located on the border of the Chattahoochee National Forest and 5 Wildlife Nature areas, sportsmen can hunt during designated times of the year for deer and turkey. The Cartecay River Retreat is also just a short drive to Lake Blue Ridge.

Families and kids will love roasting marshmallows in the fire pit down on the river bank, swimming at Carter’s Lake at the Harris Branch Recreation Area, tubing down the Cartecay or hiking the miles of trails located throughout the area.
