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 2008

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.

FANTASTIC FAMILY FUN

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place to spend our family vacation! The design of the cabin and the views from every window brought the outside beauty right to the inside. We loved the spaciousness and openness of the kitchen and other living areas. The screen porch with all of the rockers and swing was our favorite gathering spot. Sunrises and sunsets from this view were beautiful. The arrangement of the bedrooms on three levels created privacy for each family. We swam, fished, hiked, enjoyed s'mores around the fire pit, and played on the playground. The location was secluded and completely surrounded by nature yet close enough to shopping and other activities. We have already recommended this cabin to friends.

This was a beautiful and peaceful getaway. We had 3 generation's on this trip and in each age group we found activities to do. Great place to spend time with family or friends. I look forward to visiting The Grey Heron House again.

BEAUTIFUL CABIN, RELAXING TIME & POOL FUN

Beautiful cabin, relaxing time & pool fun
  • 5 of 5
We planned a last minute family trip with one stipulation from our kids...that they have a pool. We fully enjoyed our time in the Grey Herron House. The kids had their "own level" and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibily need. The pool area is great with a nice shaded cabana & bathroom on site. Would have preferred tvs in the bedrooms but we survived without it just fine. The house kitty was a sweet surprise & we enjoyed his company. We would recommend this cabin without hesitation. It was our first trip to Blue Ridge but we'll definitely be returning.
