ALL ABOUT GOLD AND THE RIVER!

Dahlonega House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

Thar’s gold in them thar hills! Dahlonega, the Georgia gateway to the Appalachians is the site of the first U.S. gold rush. Come pan for gold in historic Dahlonega on the Chestatee river. This large home is located directly on the Chestatee river just before the Coppermines. It was recently renovated, and is now ready for eager treasure hunters and vacationers. We recently added a ductless air conditioning system in the honeymoon suite on the top floor of the house.

This warm, inviting home on the river was built in 1996. It has five bedrooms, three and a half baths, two great rooms, and two kitchens. All the rooms have high ceilings including the ground floor. If you like vaulted wood ceilings and the heavenly sound and view of the river just about one hundred feet off the covered back deck this is place to spend your vacation.

There are two suites upstairs each on a different floor with their own private bathrooms. Guests with bad knees or other disabilities can get to the mountain splendor bedroom on the main floor by going up just three steps outside. The honeymoon suite is the top floor and has an Amish king-size bed, a sitting area, a vaulted wood ceiling and a full private bathroom. The main floor has a king size bed and a full private bathroom. The terrace level (ground floor) has three bedrooms of which two have queen size beds (the third bedroom has twin beds with a built in bunk-bed above for children) one full bathroom, a great room/kitchen combo and a terrace under the main deck that also looks out at the gorgeous river and shoals. There is a day bed with a trundle bed below in the terrace level great room so a total of nine guests can stay on that ground floor level. So there are two king beds, two queen beds, two twin beds with a built in bunk bed above for children under 12; and a day bed with a trundle bed below it.

Take your choice of the Goldrush bedroom with golden walls, a queen size sleigh bed and antique dresser, 'the waterfalls bedroom with a queen size bed or the wilderness adventure bedroom that has a built-in bunk bed and two twin beds below (kids love it)! If you have more than 13 people in your party there is a full size sofa upstairs and downstairs and a single size inflatable mattress and pump in the honeymoon suite closet.

The accommodations are perfect for two couples with children, large extended families, a girls, guys or couples getaway, wedding parties (we get a lot), family and company gatherings. The main floor and upstairs suite have an old feel to them even though the house is relatively new. Several rooms have antique dressers and gold accents. We have four televisions with Direct TV; the two upstairs bedrooms each have one and the two great rooms each have a television.

There are several old photos of civil war heros and the old south as well as some books about the area. The ground floor has a newer, more fun feel with a rain forest theme in the greatroom area. Even the bathrooms are fun in this house! You'ens come down yonder and have yur picture taken with our life-size wooden hillbilly, Jed! He'll be out on the deck with his moonshine awaiting your arrival.

Have you ever panned for gold? This house comes with several gold pans so your family and friends can come search for gold without ever leaving the property. At least two of our guests have found gold right on our property. The house has badminton, volleyball, horseshoes, croquet, frisbee toss, weighted yard dart toss, a fire pit, hammock and a picnic table so you can play next to the river. We have wireless internet, Direct TV and a several indoor games and puzzles.

There are many things to do in Dahlonega including outdoor sports like kayaking, fishing, hiking, mountain biking and golf. If outdoors sports are not for you there are also several vineyards (Wolf Mountain Vineyards, Three Sisters Vineyards, Frogtown Mountain Vineyards), antique shops, arts and crafts shops, wildlife preserves and festivals to explore. The Smith House is a historic family style buffet worth visiting although somewhat pricey for country cooking. Lake Lanier is also only 30 minutes south of Dahlonega in Cumming and Gainesville.

I was born and raised in the Atlanta area, but both my parents were born and raised in Boston, MA. I currently live in Cumming, GA with my husband and our three dogs. I have a full time job at a subsidiary of a national bank. We have been renting out our river house as a vacation getaway home for eight years now. I love nature and the outdoors especially the mountains. I enjoy hiking, bicycling, kayaking, walking and my pets. I try to give all our guests a good deal including one night free if two or more nights are booked. I get a lot of compliments about the house and have been told by several guests the house was better than expected. We get a lot of wedding parties that book our house since the local vineyards host a lot of weddings. I have enjoyed renting the river house out and I like knowing our house has given lots of families life-long memories they will never forget.

Beth Morgan White purchased this house in 2003

I purchased this property for my father because my sister loves rivers and kayaking and she lives in Dahlonega. The rentals from our river house usually goes back into the house for improvements including a brand new self cleaning double oven and a new air conditioning compressor with any extra to support my elderly father with his assisted living expenses. Dahlonega is a very quaint, charming small town in the north Georgia mountains. Our river house is located directly on the Chestatee river where the first goldrush in the US took place. There are a lot of antique stores and vineyards so we get a lot of wedding parties that book our house.

The sound of the river just off the deck is heavenly. It's very relaxing to sit on the deck overlooking the river listening to the water hit the shoals below. Our river house is located on a dead end road so it's fairly private with only a two or three homes beyond ours. There is a lot of hiking in the area and you can fish and kayak on our property. However, one of the most unique activities you can do on the property is pan for gold. We have several gold pans in the house for our guests to see what they can find in the river. We also have horseshoes, badminton and volleyball you can set up in the grassy area next to the river. The square in Dahlonega is very charming and quaint. There are many stores and restaurants you can visit and if you like antiques or vineyards Dahlonega has those as well.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR SECLUSION & RELAXATION, YET ONLY A SHORT 10 MINUTE DRIVE TO DAHLONEGA!

Perfect location for seclusion & relaxation, yet only a short 10 minute drive to Dahlonega!
  • 5 of 5
Beth is VERY responsive! We wanted to book 3 days at 10pm the night before arrival, & she went out of her way to confirm our booking by 8am the next morning.
We only used the main floor, but the house is 3 levels, & an excellent value for the money, with 2 masters & 2 living areas.
Bed was very comfortable, main living area has nice hardwood floors, most other areas have carpet. Kitchen is outfitted with everything you need except food items. House has a comfortable " lived in" feel to it.
The River House is secluded, down a small gravel driveway, tight drive in the front, but a huge back yard by the river with additional parking. There is a main level deck, & also a lower level porch with steps down to yard. Plenty of outside seating on both porches & near river. Gold panning equipment is here, but bring your tubes if you plan to float.
We hope to book a week's visit next time!

RELAXING HAVEN!

  • 4 of 5
We rented this house for family during a our daughter's wedding. It was a wonderful haven during all the hustle and bustle. Had a little trouble with poor cell phone reception. The house was right on the river with a wonderful setting. Wanted to stay longer! Owner was great to deal with.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Terri. I'm glad you and your family had a good time. You are correct that cell service can be sketchy depending on your carrier, but we do have a land line and provide that number for our guests and our guests can make long distance calls from the land line so they are never without phone service. I do hope you all will come back again!

WONDERFUL FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Can't tell you how perfect the house is for large families! We have 2year old twins, a 3 year old, and a 9 year old. We also had 2 sets of in laws. The house has bedrooms spread out so when we put the twins down we didn't have to worry about being quiet! Loved the fire pit! Helen and Cleveland are both close. Something interesting to see in every room. The owner went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

GREAT WINTER WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
There is plenty to do in Dahlonega during the winter. We had family who wanted to visit us in Dahlonega, but did not have the space, so we rented this river house. Fantastic layout! The elderly were on the main floor with NO stairs, the parents on the top floor, and all of the kids slept on the lowest level (3 levels). Those who were able, hiked on the Appalachian trail during the day and those who were not so active, went into town and painted pottery at Mug Me. We all played cards in the spacious great room in the evenings. The house was plenty warm and really cozy when we lit a fire in the fireplace. We had a blast! When the adults went to bed, the kids were sent downstairs. Everyone slept well, and played well. There was plenty of room for all eight of us.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you all enjoyed the river house and that the weather was nice enough to go hiking. The house is large enough for extended families and the ground floor really is ideal for children so I'm glad you all had a good experience. I hope you will come back again!

Notes:
Our river house is great for extended families and groups because it has three floors and three and a half bathrooms. The inside is warm and inviting and actually feels cozy on the two upper levels if there are only two to four guests yet it has another floor below with three bedrooms and a full bathroom if you have a larger group or children. We also have a covered deck with a covered patio below so you can sit outside even in rainy weather. The river is literally in the back yard with just 15 steps from the ground floor to river level and it has many shoals so you can hear the river from the house as well as see the river. If you have an elderly relative or someone who cannot do stairs there are just three steps out front to get into the main floor with everything they would need on that level including the covered deck. And you can drive around the back of the house to the river level so they can enjoy the river without having to go down any steps.
