****** House Rules******
Dear Prospective Guest,
There aren’t really too many house rules. Basically, come in and make yourself at home. There’s no such thing as a check-in time that’s too late, so no worries there. Let me know if you’d like an earlier check-in time than 5PM or later check-out time than 10AM. It can usually be arranged, depending on other bookings. Worst case scenario, we can store your luggage and have our housekeeper make you a cup of tea and you can lounge down in the gazebo by the river while we are preparing the cabin.
Our only requests are to please remove your shoes while inside the cabin and please do not invite visitors, the cabin and all the amenities we provide are only for our registered guests.
Before use of the hot tub we would appreciate if guests would shower with soap and water as this helps the water stay in balance with only needing to balance chemicals at departure.
Departure: Please leave our cabin neat and tidy, do not strip the sheets off the bed we prefer to do this ourselves, just put the beds back the way you found them with bedding left flat on top of the beds. If towels are damp please hang them over the towel rack to air dry. Please wipe down kitchen counter tops, load and start the dishwasher(s) if you are unsure where kitchen inventory belongs please leave on the counter. If grill has been used, please brush grill down and wipe off side trays. Confirm Home Theater Room Projector System has been turned off per instructions, turn lights and ceiling fans off, check to make sure all doors are locked and bag all trash from kitchen and bathrooms and just toss your trash in the bin on the side of the driveway on your way out.
After you book and well before your arrival date, you’ll receive an email from us explaining how to get to the cabin, where to park, and all sorts of good information about things to do in and around this wonderful town.

About Lisa Strauss - River Ridge Lodge
We do our very best to provide the best in Southern Hospitality and over the top amenities and features.
Lisa Strauss - River Ridge Lodge purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Lisa Strauss - River Ridge Lodge chose Blue Ridge
The best feature by far is the location we are in the heart of the Aska Adventure area on the upper Toccoa River. This location has the best trout fishing. Everyone loves the large gazebo with fireplace at the rivers edge. This is a genuine log home that was crafted with real western cedar logs which gives you a totally different feel. River Ridge Lodge stays much cooler in the summer and is really cozy and comfortable in the winter because the logs hold in most of the heat. The home theater room is a real plus. The curved benches around a large round dining table with a lazy susan in the center makes it ideal for sharing a meal with family and friends.
What makes this Cabin unique
Riverfront, Riverfront, trout fishing from our riverbank and listen to the sounds of the river to lull you to sleep at night. Our gazebo with wood burning fireplace is a huge hit and everyone loves our Home Theater room!

Really enjoyed our long weekend. It was our first trip to the Blue Ridge area. Cabin was all it was advertised to be.
This cabin was amazing!
Amazing cabin on the river!! Very spacious!!! We had a awesome time. Highly recommend!!
An adirondack House at its finest!!!
If this place hasn't already been, it should be featured in Southern Living.
The owner's, the Strauss family were a delight to deal with!!
What a magnificent "cabin." 3 generations of our family ALL fell in love with the place! It was so warm and comfortable. I could go on and on. But will limit my praise to 2 things. One, the huge round dining table set all 10 of us. The experience was so wonderful that even the grand children hung around after dinner to enjoy the conversation. The 2nd thing was location. So convenient to hiking and tubing. We actually brought our own tubes and were able to use our place as a put in/take out point!!!
Now, my wife told me not to make the next comment. But, in fairness to full of full disclosure, the TP could have been softer and the shampoo better for hair (it was more like hand soap)
Those are the only 2 very minor improvements we'd suggest.
Great stay at River Ridge Lodge!
Our family of 9 enjoyed our vacation at River Ridge Lodge. The Lodge was beautiful and had every thing you could possibly need for your stay! Beds were comfortable and rooms were very roomy. We enjoyed playing games, and watching movies in the theater room. The view of the river was so nice and the outside seating areas were comfortable. The owners were accommodating and easy to work with. We will definitely be back.
The cabin is better than pictured. The beds are soooo comfy. We all slept so well each night. We spent lots of time in the theatre room as well. It was a VERY peaceful and relaxing trip.
We strive for 5 star reviews in every category so please read through the location information carefully or ask us questions before booking. On the Plus side the Cabin is located directly on the upper Toccoa River in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area so you will find the cabin close to hiking trails and the Shallow ford Iron Bridge where tubes can be rented.. Guests that are familiar with the area we are one mile up the road from the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant. The Negative is the distance we are 9 miles from downtown Blue Ridge. If distance to town is too far than our cabin may not be the best fit.
