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 River
The 2 acre estate of Fishermans retreat is really a mini-farm with blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, 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 about 4 miles below Lake Blue Ridge is suggested by local fishing guides as the best place for trout fishing.
Probably the most convenient location that you will find for a cabin providing easy access and many amenities.
A "high five" to the Taylor's "Fisherman's Retreat". We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the quiet, No planes, sirens or traffic. Your cabin is a wonderful place to kick back and realize what life is all about. Pepper (the cat) kept us company and kept his claws to himself. Thank you for sharing your lovely cabin.
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.
This was our third stay, and as the saying goes, third is a charm -- we caught our best trout -- 2 five pounders and a few smaller -- ate like kings! We love Fisherman's and are truly sad that it is coming out of the rental program -- where will we find a new place comparable with the location, amenities, TERRIFIC OWNERS, ... it'll be a tall order. We are so grateful we were able to stay at Fisherman's and make cherished memories that will be with us forever. Thank you Charlotte and Jerry -- we are so honored to have crossed paths with you.
Another great stay at "Fishermans Retreat!" We arrived on October 25, 2015 and departed on November 01, 2015. Possibly our fourteenth visit to "Heaven on the Tocooa river." We still find everything as beautiful as our very first stay! The colors were breath taking! The weather was non typical for the last month of October and we endured almost a week of rain. Were we disappointed? NEVER! Did we catch fish? ALWAYS! Six beautiful trout with the largest rainbow weighing in at close to four pounds! And where is that fish today? In Jerrys and Charlottes freezer! Our way of saying thanks. The other five trout caught by by my wife Wendy which she seems to constantly remind me of that fact. What can I say....I taught her everything she knows....plus some. So, in closing we'd like to say thanks again to our wonderful hosts. Their cabin and its location equates to this. Fish...fried apple pies...fun! Our final hope? They will adopt us!
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us for the weekend. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. What a lovely, relaxing place you have. Everything was clean and well kept, very well equipped, we didn't need for anything. You made us feel right at home. Such a peaceful tranquil place. And a special thanks for those delicious homemade blueberry muffins. What a treat. I look forward to visiting with you again. Karen Cook
The cabin is perfect in every way. The location is not to far from restaurants and shopping but is also in a very quit and private location. The fishing was great, I even caught an 8lb rainbow that will go on my wall. All in all my family had a wonderful time, the kids are already asking to go back. The owners are very helpful and great people.
The eight days that we stayed in this cabin was perfect from day one to the day we sadly left. It was much more than we saw in the pictures on line. There's a whole list of superlatives I could use to describe this property. Very private, although it has easy auto access to local stores and restaurants. Our time spent here was relaxing and stress free. Everything was very clean and in good order when we arrived. We enjoyed cooking in for most meals and found the kitchen well equipped to do so. The owner of this property – Mr. Taylor, is very easy to do business with and takes great care and pride in maintaining his cabin. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cabin. I hope to be back again...it really felt like home!
