Cartecay River Rapids (River Ridge)
Cartecay Rapids is located just 2 ½ miles (5 minute ride) from the put in point for kayaks, tubes and canoes. From there you can take a 2 to 3 hour ride (depending on how fast the river is flowing), passing several Class 1 and Class 2 rapids, including the fast moving S-turn and Class 3 Blackberry Falls. You can use the shuttle service of the Cartecay Experience or keep floating down the river until you reach our deck along the river. If you enjoy kayaking, canoeing or tubing, then this is what you’ve been looking for!
Cartecay Rapids is great for fishermen too! You can fish below the rapids on our property or pick another spot along the Cartecay. The Toccoa River is Blue Ridge is only 20 miles from the cabin.
With two large screen porches, you can open the doors and windows to hear the rapids along the river below the cabin. There are two comfortable king masters on the first and second floor that both have access to screen porch areas. In the loft upstairs, there is a trundle bed which serves as two twin beds when pulled out. Cartecay Rapids has all of the comforts of home including two full baths, a full size kitchen, electric oven, microwave, cabin tv, wi-fi, wood burning fireplace and the beautiful sound of the river below 24 hours a day!
Located just 3 short miles from downtown Ellijay, you’ll be just minutes away from antique shopping and dining in the quaint downtown area. The cabin is also just 15 minutes south of Blue Ridge, GA which includes shops, dining and the famous Blue Ridge Railway.
