Guest Comments: 'Shady River Retreat was a pleasant surprise to me and my family. Booking over the internet was a bit daunting, as we had never actually been to or seen this cabin other than via internet. However, the owner was just as helpful and pleasant as she could be! When we arrived at the cabin, it was just as the pictures depicted. The view of the river was fabulous and my children absolutely loved wading and splashing around in the water. The pool table was another hit with all of us. There were several activities close by that we really enjoyed-picking apples at BJ Reece's (the fried pies are heaven), riding the Blue Ridge Railway, golf, picnicking at Amicolola Falls, but we had just as much fun hanging around the cabin. The hammock was peaceful, and many hours were spent on the porch swing, talking and laughing. We also spotted about 12 deer and 6 turkey. Everything we needed was provided in the cabin, so we never had to made trips to town for anything-other than food. I knew it had been a

Just a short note to let you know we really enjoyed our vacation at the cabin. The Smores were a nice surprise especially since my granddaughter asked me on the way there if I remembered to bring marshmallows. The water was a very nice surprise. Your pictures do not show how beautiful it really is.

Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Jennifer and Lonnie for opening up your cabin for our fabulous family vacation!! This was such a relaxing time where we could all reconnect with each other. Our two sons, their wives and our three little grandchildren - Noah 5 1/2 years, Brannon almost 5 years and Natalie almost 3 years old really enjoyed the river. Tubing was such an adventure and wading/playing in the cool water was refreshing. We enjoyed walking and exploring and took tons of pictures. We loved the camp fire and making s'mores. One day was spent riding the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway but otherwise we did not feel the need to go anywhere else. There were plenty of games at the cabin but would recommend bringing additional paper supplies and your own body wash/soap. Stocking up before you settle in is best because you won't want to leave!

Ready to go Back NOW

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!! The view of the
river, and the comfort and tranquility of the cabin were just awesome!! We
loved the screened in porch. Although it rained and we were only able to
enjoy the River for one day, we made the best of a "wet" situation, by playing
cards and pool. We drove to the Rec center, but the pool was closed because
of thunder and putt putt was washed out. Thankfully your cabin kept us dry and
comfortable. We would love to come back some day and get in a little more
tubing!!! We tried to leave things as nice as we found them. Thank you again
and I would recommend this cabin to everyone!

Wow...peaceful...perfect

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect and the pictures do not do this place justice! The double doors opened to the screened in porch with the sounds of the river and crickets at night was my favorite part. Ugh..I couldn't get enough. Our 19month old loved to run around the porch too. This was our first time staying in a resort and we were worried about privacy but being there you wouldn't even know it was a resort except you check in at a gate. There are cabins next door but you still feel so secluded. We actually wouldn't want it anymore secluded than it was. The river was beautiful and we all enjoyed tubing. We did some hiking and sight seeing but seriously being at the cabin was our favorite part. Everything we needed was already there. The owners of the cabin were great to work with and happily answered all the questions we had. Loved that it was their personal cabin and not a rental company. This was our 3rd VRBO rental and first visit to Georgia( other 2 in Tennessee) and by far our favorite. We hope to come back soon. Thank y'all!!

Very Satisfied

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was beautifully decorated with a full kitchen and gorgeous views of the river. We enjoyed the screened in porch and the loft style bedrooms. The only thing I would recommend to the owners is to maybe invest in a flat screen television. The tv was fine but we had planned on hooking up our netflix account to watch movies through the computer but were unable to do so because the tv was not compatible with that type of technology. We have had stayed in other cabins in the area that were just as nice as this one but we had to pay almost twice the price for the other cabins and the other reason we loved this cabin is because they allowed us to rent it for only 2 nights where as most agencies insist on a 3 night minimum during peak season. We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a quiet weekend away.

Owner's Response: Relaxing by the beautiful river is also one of my favorite things to do while at our cabin. I'm glad you were able to enjoy that during your stay. We truly feel as though renting by owner allows us to "share" our cabin with friends since we are able to personally connect with our guests via phone or email prior to the arrival. This allows us the benefit of excellent guests who take care of our home so we can keep our rates reasonable. Thank you for pointing that out! Also, your suggestion about investing in newer TV technology is a great one and we will put that into our operating budget next year. Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. Please come back soon!

Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our adult children and their partners joined us for a weekend at the cabin on the river. We fished, kayaked and sat around the fire at the river's edge. The cabin was great, nicely furnished with plenty of space. We spent most of our time outside, from morning coffee on the porch to a campfire at night. Bring supplies and don't leave the whole time you are there!
