The upstairs bedroom features a queen-size bed and glass doors that open onto a private deck. The ground level bedroom is sufficiently secluded from the upper level, creating an ideal environment for two couples/families. Both bedrooms have their own television and volume control for the house stereo system.
The Great Room offers the essentials of relaxation: comfortable leather furniture and a large flat-screen TV. The fully loaded kitchen offers stainless appliances and gourmet. In the dining room, a long bench-style dining table makes for spacious, enjoyable meals.
The Carriage House offers two decks on the upper level, which provide ideal spaces for viewing wildlife, relaxing with a good book, or taking in the sunrise to the east or the sunset to the west.
Sunken into its own separate deck, the seven person hot tub provides the ultimate in relaxation. A stone patio with wood-burning firepit and picnic table makes for the best of outdoor living.
When you stay at The Carriage House, you’ll have access to several local features. Enjoy a swim in the heated, in-ground swimming pool open from May through October. And be sure to take advantage of the world-class trout fishing on the renowned Toccoa River (we own over a thousand feet of river frontage).

About Greg Spencer
As a family owned and operated business, we at Toccoa House Properties take pride in offering some of the best vacation rentals in Blue Ridge, Georgia. We own the land, designed and built each of the cabins, and personally manage the day-to-day operations.
Because of our hands-on involvement, we believe we offer a professional and friendly rental service far better than that of the typical rental management agency. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of each and every guest.
Proprietor Greg Spencer initially discovered the Blue Ridge area on a backpacking trip to the Cohutta Wilderness in the 1980’s. A short time later, enamored of the area, Greg embarked on a land purchasing mission that led him to 12 acres of undeveloped acreage.
Greg Spencer purchased this house in 2004
Why Greg Spencer chose Blue Ridge
Amazed by the beauty of the Toccoa River and the inspiring views of the surrounding mountains, Greg wasted no time in securing what is now known as the Toccoa House Properties.
During the 1990’s Greg built a small cabin, The Riverside Cabin, on the Toccoa River, and envisioned a larger house that he later built on the ridge above: The Toccoa House, completed in 2000. Next came The Carriage House in 2002, and the in-ground, seasonally heated swimming pool in 2007. Our newest addition, The Grey Heron House, was completed in late 2007.
Our pets and property mascots, Budrow and Bobby Jo (BJ is named for the Blue Ridge couple, Bobby and Jo, who gave him to us, thank you so much!!), may greet you if they happen to be on the property when you visit. While they often bark, what they really want is for you to pet them!
We lived on the the Toccoa House property for about five years (2003-2008) while building the later cabins and pool, but have recently built a new house on a 'very challenging lot' in Chamblee, Georgia, which we absolutely love (inside I-285 with a five acre wilderness behind our property...thank you Georgia Power and Dekalb County!!). Because of our intense commitment to achieve a superior level of guest satisfaction, we are often on the property, regularly inspecting, organizing, repairing, and maintaining the interior and exterior property ourselves. If you see us on the property strolling the grounds, or giving Budrow and Bobby Jo a walk about, feel free to say 'Hello' and let us know if there is anything we can do to accentuate your guest experience.
What makes this house unique
It is rare to have awesome views AND direct access to over 1000 feet of Toccoa River shoreline. Greg has also combined his 30+ years of experience as a builder and home inspector to create a custom home, with excruciating attention to detail. Every aspect is well above and beyond the typical north Georgia cabin rental.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The leaves were just starting to turn and we loved being able to view them from all sides of this gorgeous cabin. The many trails on the property allowed us to walk and walk and walk. We also spent much time just hanging out by the river. We hated to leave but we'll be back next summer to enjoy the swimming pool!
