Lucky Eight - Ellijay Real Estate

Nestled in the foothills of the vast Chattahoochee National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains wanders a pristine spring-fed mountain river called the Cartecay. It was on this river, in a special place known to the Cherokees and early settlers, that the Lucky Eight Goldmine existed in the 1800s. Lucky Eight is steeped in the legend of lost Indian treasure caves and of early miners who found veins of shiny gold in the glimmering waters of the Cartecay.

Only the river and the mountains hold the secrets of this past time, but now, you too can share in the history and lore of this special place by becoming part of the Lucky Eight River Community.

Lucky Eight offers land for sale with underground utilities, well maintained roads, restricted access with electronic entry gates and protective covenants to insure the future value of your property and protect the natural beauty of the river and land. River lots range from one acre to over three acres, while mountain building lots and Reese Creek lots range from over an acre to almost five acres. A special river park has been set aside on the Cartecay River and Reese Creek for the enjoyment of all property owners, while beautiful nature trails run throughout the community and alongside the river, with a footbridge connecting the two sides, giving you access to the river from any lot.

Fishing inside the Lucky Eight River Community is reserved for residents and their guests, with a "catch and release" policy, ensuring that the fishing areas are never crowded and the river is always stocked with trout.
