About Homer and Jan Jones

My Bride of 42 years and I are very excited to share our special place with you and yours. We are full time residence of South Florida, near Ft Myers.

We have owned RiverWoods Cottage Retreat since October 2005. The property has all the ammenities necessary to make my Bride and I want to return time and time again. We are so close to everything yet still in a wonderful private secluded location. We have the best of all worlds.

We visit Dahlonega several times and year and really enjoy ever moment on this property. The local people of Dahlonega and surronding areas are outstanding. They are full of kindness.

Have fun and enjoy all that RiverWoods Cottage Retreat has to offer.

Homer and Jan Jones purchased this house in 2005

Why Homer and Jan Jones chose Dahlonega

My Bride and I searched for 8 years before selecting this location. We searched all of North Geargia with my Brother and Sister-in-law, countiued into North and South Carolina. We stayed at Bed and Breakfast locations in most towns visited. The first town visited was Dahlonega. I told my Wife, this is my choice but we continued on. Later returnning to Dahlonega and making Dahlonega our choice. The decision was based on the waterfront property location,privacy, great fishing, unbeliveable view of the river and surroundings, the people, food,wineries, festivals, and great shopping. This is the 'Biggest Little Town' I have ever visited. So much to see and visit. Enjoy!

What makes this house unique

The trip to RiverWoods is very unique. The drive from the main road is beautiful. You might see deer, turkeys, beaver and birds of all kinds.

When you arrive, the firist thing you hear is the roar of the mighty Chestee River. As you explore the property you will find areas where the water is calm and quite,. You continue along the 600 foot frontage and you will hear the that wonderful sound at the 'Big Rock Bend', located convinently at the back side of the house. There you will find the fire pit for those marshmello/ hot dog roast in the evenings. For those looking for quite time, follow the walkway at the side of the house and you will find ' Leaning Rock' with a beautiful view of the Chestee River. Have a seat, relax, enjoy. Don't forget to look for 'Hammock Beach', a nice sandy area at waterside.

BEAUTIFUL AND RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
I vacationed here with 6 of my girlfriends for a bachelorette weekend. It was absolutely amazing! It wasn't your typical bachelorette weekend full of craziness, but that isn't quite what we were going for anyways. We were looking for a place to spend some time together and have fun. We arrived to the house in the evening and were so incredibly surprised to find how clean and nicely decorated it was. The view was absolutely breathtaking! Our first night, we sat around catching up, relaxing around the fireplace. There was so much space for everyone to sleep and the beds and bedding were extremely comfortable/cozy. The next day, we went to Wolf Mountain where we enjoyed a delicious lunch outside with a gorgeous view of the mountains, then proceeded on to a delectable wine tasting, which was lots of fun. The wine was great! The second day, we just relaxed at the house. The owners of the house gave us the contact information of a masseuse that came out to the house and gave us all individual massages on the balcony of the house. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Then, we went down by the creek and parked ourselves in the lounge chairs, reminiscing and enjoying the tranquil sounds of the running water with the beautiful scenery that surrounded us. There was a huge fire pit as well! We made dinner that night at the house and were very happy to find that the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. Our last night, we went out on the town. Downtown Dahlonega is a super cute little town with lots of great shops and places to visit. We had dinner at Corkscrew (which was recommended by the owners of the house) and it was amazing! Then we celebrated some more at a bar called Shenanigans, which was a fun place for all the locals to hang out. All in all, it was an amazing trip. We were so incredibly happy with the house and all of its amenities. We keep talking about how we are going to plan another trip to go back because we had such a great time and really loved the house/property. I highly recommend this place as a vacation spot if you are looking to have a nice and relaxing get-a-way. Great for families and friends! Would go back in a heartbeat! :)

Purely Magical

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I arrived at Riverwoods with the hope of leaving the stress of work behind. Upon our arrival, we were amazed and delighted by the pure feeling of love throughout the home and property. The home is set upon an escarpment with an unbelievable view and sound of the river below. There is a fire pit below and a very cool lounge area in the woods. If you are looking for pure ecstasy and relaxation on every level Riverwoods is your destination.

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my family of six May 25-June 1, 2013. We found the cabin to be clean and well stocked with everything needed in the kitchen and the entire house. There were plenty of towels and bedding items to be comfortable. All the appliances (including A/C and heater) were in good working order. The pictures shown online are very accurate. It is an older property but it is well maintained. It has a nice wrap-around porch and a screened-in lanai. The location makes you feel very secluded but yet you are within 15-20 from the town of Dahlonega. The manager, Ashley, was very nice and helpful. I had to call her with some questions initially when I arrived and she was available always. It is a safe place.

Be aware that you are in the woods. We saw some spiders and also two scorpions in the house. The scorpions freaked us out a little bit but this is what you'll get going to the woods. I have been stung by jelly fish going to the ocean!

Something also to be aware of is that the road going into the development is narrow and winding going up the mountain. You pass many properties and then the road gets down even narrower to just one lane. At that point, it becomes a private and very steep one-lane road the last 1/2 mile or so. Something to consider if you are faint-hearted driving in that type of terrain.

The property overlooks a river with some rapids in front of it. There is a small sandy beach-like area just before that rapids upstream. It also has big humongous rock at the far end of the property where the owner has made a platform that has some chairs. This a wonderful area to relax and read a book.

We traveled around the area to Helen, GA, (about a 30 minute drive) which a very nice town with lots of shopping. I highly recommend to visit that town. We spent more time going Helen than going to Dahlonega. Dahlonega is also a nice town with some shops and restaurants but not as many stores to shop as you would find in Helen. There is a super Walmart in Dahlonega.

All in all, we had a great time in a comfortable clean and well-maintained property. I would highly recommend it and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Home away from Home...

  • 5 of 5
Let me begin by saying I personally know the property owners. I may be biased, but I am also quite honest. My husband and I have not been able to vacation at the home as much as we'd like due to scheduling conflicts, but in my opinion, it is definitely home away from home. The peacefulness and serenity is so refreshing that even a few days at this property is worth it! I am also a clean-freak and have severe allergies-and I can honestly say I would eat off these floors! The house is spotless, decorated with coziness, and the beds are incredibly comfortable! We are reserving our dates in August to take advantage of the great kayaking on the river and drink our fill of the wine at Wolfe Mountain winery...plus I love browsing the shops in downtown Dahlonega, the candy store has the best taffy ever!!

A Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for the weekend while visiting the North Georgia college campus. Had two teenage sons, and grandfather along, and all had a wonderful time - was peaceful, but also adventurous, as the boys had their grandfather (84+) hiking and climbing around the property. Very close to the square for restaurants, but would have been just as happy staying put and cooking. Super location, great house, beautifully decorated inside and out, and the screen porch and outside firepit were two favorite gathering spots. The river is beautiful, amazing and relaxing. Our only complaint would be that our stay was too short to enjoy it all!! Thanks!
