Overview

Blue Ridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full & 2 half bathrooms, sleeps 6

Rivermac is a luxury river cabin overlooking gentle rapids on the Toccoa River, across from the Chattahoochee National Forest.

This is a modern version of a classic river house with the vibe of an urban loft. Stunning views of the river are visible from nearly every room. Furnishings are comfortably modern with a contemporary blend of clean lines and natural materials. Large expanses of glass bring the outdoors in with views of the rushing river below and majestic evergreens reaching blue sky in the forest beyond.

The main level open floor plan features walls of glass soaring to a peak of over 30 feet. The jetted hot tub, with a custom built, multi-level surround, is located on a private covered deck open to the river and forest views. Architectural details such as sliding barn doors, subway tile, pipe railings, etc…all contribute to the ambiance.

Find more detailed information on our RivermacCabin website.

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful, as the pictures show. We weren't disappointed! Everything was as described in the listing. The area at the riverbed was so peaceful and beautiful, possibly my favorite part! Lory and Ed were wonderful to work with. The kitchen was perfect, a great space with everything we could've needed. The bathrooms, bedrooms, shared spaces - everything was great! I'd recommend it to anyone and will probably be returning before too long.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second weekend at Rivermac, and we are already planning our third! There's nothing else like it in this area in terms of design and comfort, and the river is right there! Loved just hanging around on the deck and hearing the water rushing. The location is very convenient to a supermarket and good restaurants, not a long drive from Atlanta but a world away. You'll love it!

Simply Pleasurable

  • 5 of 5

We can be picky and difficult customers. From the pictures, we knew we would like the place. In person, the house outshines the pictures and is truly a well thought out and well appointed luxury cabin. The views of the river from inside the house are spectacular and hearing the water from inside is truly relaxing. We had a rainy weekend the whole visit, which made the house even more romantic.

We will be back!

A girlfriend's weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lory and Ed,

I have been pondering this review for two weeks trying to figure out how to accurately describe our wonderful stay at the cabin and realized that words are limiting and so I will do my very best with what I have.

First let me say the pictures on the website do not do the cabin justice! It is absolutely stunning. The river in the morning with a cup of coffee is heavenly.

More than beautiful, the cabin is warm and inviting and we felt at home immediately. We had planned a relaxing birthday weekend with the girls and had a menu that was to reflect the intention of our weekend - easy, fun, and good. The kitchen was perfectly supplied and the layout is great for gathering while cooking. The best conversations happen in the kitchen and extend to the dining room table which was perfect for family style meals which we had at breakfast and dinner each night we were there.

The evenings were cool and perfect for a dip in the hot tub or a huddle in the living room around the fireplace - were we spent much of our time play games and watching football!

We allowed ourselves to get lost in the ambiance. We considered driving into town and check out some of the sights but the cloudy, wet weather coupled with the warmth of the fireplace and the great company convinced us to stay in and relax more!

We left Monday morning feeling renewed and rejuvenated. We can't wait to come back - next time in the spring so we can go tubing and grill.

This is an amazing cabin and I have recommended staying here to several of my friends. It's a great couples get away or a sweet girlfriend's retreat like ours. You will leave refreshed, relaxed and ready to tackle your life!

Oh, and if you run out of wine, marshmallows, or ice cream Food Lion is only a few minutes down the road!

Lory and Ed, again thank you. You thought of everything and the cabin is perfectly furnished, uber clean, warm and comfortable!

Thank you,

Jamila M.

ARCHITECTURAL GEM WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful retreat getaway at Rivermac Cabin situated on the Toccoa River in the Chattahoochee Oconee National Forest of Blue Ridge Georgia! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Rivermac Cabin and truly can't say enough good things about it. It is immaculately clean and well cared for, comes fully equipped and even includes unexpected items such as binoculars and a backpack, has a functional layout, and a unique architectural design that takes advantage of the views and distinguishes it from all other cabins in the area. Lory and Ed make every effort to provide outstanding service and make certain that your stay at Rivermac Cabin is as convenient as possible and very memorable.

Trust me, when I tell you that pictures online do not do this property justice. From the moment you enter Rivermac Cabin, you realize that you are about to experience something very special! It greets you with an inviting open floor plan that entices you with a wide foyer leading to a spectacular open great room area that bedazzles you with a ceiling that soars more than 30 feet in height at its apex. There is a spectacular array of large windows that frame beautiful views of the Chattahoochee Oconee National Forest and and the crystal clear flowing Taccoa river!

It is truly breathtaking to behold in person and neither words nor photographs an truly capture its splendor. Lory and Ed have created a masterpiece respite that makes you feel fortunate to behold and experience all of its many nuances. It is truly a one of a kind property that is very, very, special! There are so many special creative and thoughtful touches, unique ideas, and attention to details, that it becomes readily apparent that Rivermac Cabin had to be a consuming labor of love for Lory and Ed.

We have somewhat of a penchant for architectural and interior design and are therefore harder to please than most. Rivermac Cabin surpassed our expectations! Rivermac Cabin holds a surprise around every corner. The cabin is flooded by natural light from a multitude of windows that each capture a unique scenic view of nature. There is a variety of interesting artwork interspersed throughout the cabin that slowly reveals itself to you following your initial awe of the cabin's architectural details and beauty. Lory has ingeniously and successfully fused traditional cabin materials and elements with modern interior design concepts and decor in a wa
