The Coosawattee River Resort has over 5,500+ acre of prime North Georgia Mountain real estate just waiting for you to come on up and explore. You’ll find an abundance of wildlife, including deer, raccoons, wild turkey, eagles, hawks and the occasional black bear. So be sure to keep your eyes open as you drive through the resort to view these local species roaming the mountainous terrain. Another highlight of the Coosawattee RIver Resort is the 12 miles of spectacular river front property, such a beautiful setting where the Ellijay and Cartecay Rivers meet to form the Coosawattee River and then gently flow into Carter’s Lake. If fishing is your passion, the River is a favorite for trout fishermen, where you can find a spot along the banks of the stocked fishing pond or throw in a line off the river banks.
