  • Awesome


    This place is beyond awesome!!! The hostess and host has equipped the property with everything you need and the cabin was comfortable and clean. The sound and view was of the river so tranquil. If I could buy this cabin I would, we will definitely be back!!

  • Perfect Weekend Getaway


    We have been renting a cabin in Ellijay/Blue Ridge area since our now 18 year old daughter, was 2 and it is one of our favorite traditions! Happy Jack's is at the top of our favorite rentals, ever!

    The location right on the river, huge outdoor area and beautiful, spacious cabin were all perfect! The cabin was stocked with anything you could need, beds were super comfortable, there were plenty of hooks for towels, coats, etc (no-one ever has enough of those), our son loved the game room and it was beautifully decorated. Our family had more than enough space to spread out and we loved being able to sit right by the river to eat a meal and have a fire to roast s'mores and listen to music.

    we also had so many deer come right up to the cabin and even cross the river right in front of us (never seen that before).

    Aileen was super to work with and very responsive. We will definitely be back to Happy Jack's and definitely recommend this cabin! It also looks like it would be awesome for warm weather too (maybe we will book again in the summer).

  • Absolutely beautiful!


    My family and I stayed at Happy Jacks for Thanksgiving. It exceeded our expections! We went straight to the water upon arrival! It was beautiful! The cabin was spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped to cook and eat our Thanksgiving dinner. The huge table was perfect for our family of 10. We spent a lot of time there eating and playing games! In the evenings, we enjoyed the fire pit, eating s'mores, and listening to the water. We had an amazing time at Happy Jacks and will definitely come again!
