Blue Ridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description
3 BR + Loft, 2 BA, Sleeps to 16 using detached unit

If you like trout fishing and family fun this is the place. A romantic escape, a wonderful fishing experience or just plain fun and relaxation. Fishermans Retreat, a beautiful, large 1700 square foot log cabin, offers outstanding trout fly fishing in your private, back yard with 320 feet of open easy access to the rocky, Toccoa River. This cabin is located waterfront on the lower Toccoa River where the trout fishing is the best you will find.

The large flat lawn is like a park area and allows children the freedom to romp, play on the tire swing or have a family softball, baseball, or football game. Relax on the river deck at Fishermans Retreat and roast marshmallows on the outdoor fireplace while you listen to the rippling waters of the Toccoa.

The 2 acre estate of Fishermans retreat is really a mini-farm with blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, muscadines, and garden vegetables to be picked when in season. Or you can relax in the riverside arbor swing and watch the fishermen haul them in.

Plenty of parking is provided in the flat, circular drive around the flower garden. The gated entry at the end of the private road provides security but not seclusion and is only 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. Past renters (with our former rental agent) all say that this is the best place they have ever stayed and it far exceeded their expectations. Book for a week; you will find that two or three days is not long enough!

We are a retired couple and manage the rentals ourselves. You can be assured of a very clean and well appointed cabin. I was an aerospace engineer (Ga Tech grad) last working at Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, GA. This is my retirement job and I spend about 20 hours per week managing the rental program.

Jerry or Charlotte Taylor, owners purchased this cabin in 2001

This location on the Toccoa river is recognized by local fishing guides as the best place for trout fishing.

Wonderful Family Getaway

Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway. Fisherman's Retreat offers a perfect romantic getaway or in our case a family outing. Our 7 year old caught a 2 lb trout right off the bank! In addition to fishing we enjoyed canoeing, riding bikes and playing baseball and we didn't even have to leave the house to do these things!!!!

I would recommend Fisherman's Retreat to anyone. Thank you again for a wonderful weekend. We are already planning our next trip.

Our ninth or tenth stay at this cabin. We've lost count. What can I say that I haven't said before. Simply excellent. Checked in on a rainy afternoon and couldn't wait to go to sleep to enjoy the rain hitting the roof. No ambien needed here!! Next day the rain stopped and we sat on the deck and did nothing but relax. We did make an effort to fish but the amount of runoff from all the rain stained the river a deep earth colored red. Was I disappointed? No, because I knew by the morning it would be perfect for fishing! Was I right? Of course! Three beautiful brown trout weighing in at almost four pounds each for the first two caught and three pounds for the third. That is a digital scale weight....not a guesstimate. The following day another beautiful brown just under two pounds. We decided to release the last fish because we wanted it to gain some more weight for our next excursion to the cabin. One smaller rainbow was also released. Overall experience was great as has been every trip we've made to this wonderful cabin. The owners as always provided us with another trip to be remembered. Close friends they've become over the years. Always responsive to our needs plus some! I think you'll find this cabin a wonderful experience. Its location on the river is the best to catch big fish. Always has been....always will be. That is why you'll see every guide boat stop in front of the deck and hold there to fish. If fishing isn't for you then bring your football, baseball, soccer ball, badminton set or whatever it is you enjoy doing outside with you because there's more than enough room to play with all of them. At the same time!! Don't bring any horse shoes...they're already outside. Maybe just a book.

Owner's Response: Gee Don, You are humbling us with all those glowing comments and your experiences at Fisherman's Retreat. We are so pleased that we can agree with your comments. Folks just need to see the place to know that everything you said is true. Will see you again in October!

We really loved this place from the time we set foot on the property, the owner Jerry came and greeted us. What a nice touch! We brought our two dogs with us and they had plenty of room to play outside. We brought a long 30' leash with us. The fishing was extremely good and the water was very high. You can hear the sound of the river from the porch. It's so peaceful and relaxing, you can even fall asleep on the bed on the screened back porch facing the river. The place had everything you would need and was very clean. A short drive into town (about 15 minutes) is a large supermarket. MacCaysville is a great place to visit and is about a 20 minute drive. The people are very friendly here and the place is situated at the end of a dead end road so it's very private. We've stayed in other cabins in North Georgia and this place we would definitely like to return to.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much folks for your gracious remarks. It is always pleasing to us to know that our efforts met with the guests' approval. We would love to see you return repeatedly and maybe catch even bigger trout the next time.

Merry Christmas, Jerry and Charlotte

The Fisherman's Retreat is an excellent place to enjoy the beauty of the North Georgia mountains! The cabin and property are beautiful! The access to the river is beyond compare. We have rented in the area before, and this property was superior to all other area rentals. The cabin is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owners made our vacation very comfortable and were very accommodating. The property is a great place to spend a family vacation! I would highly recommend a stay at The Fisherman's Retreat!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Many prospective guests look for the cheapest cost available and don't observe the old adage "you get what you pay for". At Fisherman's Retreat we try to ensure that you get more than you pay for. The personal reviews by you and many other guests help us to convince the prospective guests that they will not be disappointed in what they get. Thank you again...........we look forward to your return.

Most Pleasant and Memorable Vacation

We read all the reviews for this cabin before we committed and there really isn’t anything more we can add to all the fabulous comments. The experience exceeded our expectations – alas no trout were caught. Who knew the river would be 3 feet above normal, rushing like the Colorado River and rain almost the entire time we were there – WE STILL HAD A TERRIFIC VACATION ! Jerry, you are the most gracious and courteous host – it was a pleasure to meet you. Your generosity sharing vegetables and blueberries from the garden was very much appreciated. The cabin was comfortable and cozy with every amenity one would want – you settle in feeling at home immediately. And, kudos to your cleaning person – with all the high-volume rental traffic you have, the cabin does not show it ! We thank you for sharing your slice of paradise….we’ll be back…

Perfect Mountain Getaway

This was a wonderful rental experience. The cabin was very clean and stocked with everything you could need. We stayed for a week and it wasn't enough time to enjoy everything the cabin and surrounding areas had to offer. The location is perfect (close to town but very private). The fishing spot was great- we loved using the deck and the fire pit nightly. Our family vacations in in northern Georgia each year and found that this cabin had it all. From the moment we arrived, we could tell that the owners really care about their property and their guests. The pictures on the website don't do this property justice. We look forward to returning next year!

Look no further if you love the feeling of solitude on a great river, yet close to everything. Our week was filled with fishing (both fly and spin reel), fire-pit-s'more making, horse-shoe throwing, game-board playing, Serenity In The Mountains Spa treatments, and Blue Ridge window shopping. In short, stay here!

Owner's Response: Another wonderful review. Thanks to our gracious guests for their inciteful remarks. Really, our cabin does have just about everything one could hope for and we continually try to improve. We expect to have a good garden this year with blueberries, blackberries, squash, okra, tomatoes and more. We just hope mother nature cooperates. Looking forward to having you folks back for a two week stay in late July.

We just returned from a great week in your river side cabin. The location was private and peaceful and the kids had a great time. They won't stop talking about our planned return this summer. We caught enough fish for dinner one night, the kids played on the tire swing and roasted marshmellows in the fire pit, and the adults browsed the shops of Blue Ridge and McCayesville Ga. We had a fantastic week and look forward to returning in July. (We are actually going to get in that water.)

We can hardly stand it! Having to wait another week to arrive. Our son is a fly fisherman and is ecstatic while awaiting this vacation.

We had a wonderful time at Fisherman's Retreat. We were greeted warmly by our host, and settled in quickly to the cozy and inviting cabin. It was clean and comfortable, and the perfect size for us. This cabin has the feel of seclusion without being remote. The end of the road privacy and large flat yard are great, but it's also close enough to Blue Ridge to be convenient. Of course, Mercier's Apple House is a must for breakfast!. We really enjoyed being able to fish right from the back yard. The cabin offers good access for fishing from the bank or the dock, and some of the best trout water we could ask for. The early March snow we enjoyed was a real treat too (thanks for "ordering it up" for us Jerry). Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: We were very pleased to have you folks and will certainly give you the same cordial reception on your return. Like most of our guests you scored with some nice trout and found how tasty they are. The snow was an unexpected treat but March is a month where the snows happen most often. I am only glad it was a small snowfall and not like our March blizzard on 1993 when the snowfall in a 24 hour period exceeded three feet and temps dropped to the single digit for three days. Thanks again for coming. Jerry and Charlotte
