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).

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!

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

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.

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.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us in our late 20s/early 30s stayed at the Carriage House this past weekend for the 4th of July and had a great time. The cabin is clean and well-kept, it has a fire pit in the back, is dog friendly, has a grill, hot tub and basketball hoop, and is a short hike down to the river. What more does one need? The dogs had a blast too. We drove about 15 minutes north one day and rented tubes from a tubing company and all (sans dogs) floated down the Toccoa river for 3 hours, which was so much fun and highly recommended. We're hoping to come back and experience it in the winter, which I know will have its own unique charm. Thanks to the owners for a memorable stay.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the cabin, property and surrounding area! Come back in the winter and experience a whole different stay, quiet, clear, and peaceful. We love the wood burning stove that keeps the place toasty warm.

RELAXING STAY, PLENTY TO DO

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed at the Carriage house for 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer. The downstairs bedroom had 2 beds and an attached full bath that was perfect for our children - they loved having their own room on their own floor. We had another family come up and stay with us for 2 nights and we still had enough room -one family on each floor, so we still had some privacy. The grounds at this property were my favorite part. The beautiful Toccoa river is just a walk down the trail and the gorgeous pool is a quick walk away. Between those 2 things to do, the basketball hoop, pool, hot tub, fire pit, horseshoes and strolling the property we had plenty to do! I'm already planning our trip to return next year! Thanks for a wonderful stay, Greg and Dana :)

ONE OF OUR FAVORITES!!!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was very nice. All the things one could need. Firewood was provided. Very clean and dog friendly. Close enough to grocery store and town of Blue Ridge yet far enough out and very private. River access was beautiful and easy to get to. I do recommend taking a truck although not completely necessary. We will definitely be staying here again. If i had to express a CON, it would be that the beds are not the most comfortable and are not very big. Two adults in each bed is "Close Quarters". Outdoor fire pit was very nice to have. Still love this place.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with my husband, son who is 13 and daughter who is 2 last year in July. I am a little late on writing this review. It was a perfect set up for everyone to truly enjoy themselves. It is located near the river but not too close for comfort with having a little one. There is a gated pool and hot tub area that is just wonderful! So well kept, quiet, peaceful and clean. The cabin is beautiful and we are re-booking now to stay during the same time frame. Cannot wait to get back!! By the way, Greg and Dana the owners are wonderful to work with, very friendly and accommodating. :)))

GREAT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We came for a short weekend stay to see the property. We have stayed in many cabins in blue ridge and this one was great. There is so much to do that u don't have to even leave. We have already booked the larger home for our entire family this summer. Can't wait to use the pool.
