About Greg Spencer
Oregonian Greg Spencer initially discovered the Blue Ridge area on a backpacking trip to the Cohutta Wilderness in the 1980’s. A short time later, enamored of the area, and the incredible recreational opportunities, Greg began to explore the potential for purchasing raw mountain land, and developing uniquely designed and hand-crafted cabins, taking full advantage of stunning views and a quarter mile of Toccoa River frontage. The 17 acre project has been a labor of love for Dana Spencer as well, who manages all reservations, accounting, housekeeping, and decorating. Other properties include a four unit (circa 1908) apartment building in downtown Blue Ridge, along with a Florida swamp property, on the Withlacoochee River. What began as an adventure has now become a steady endeavor that Greg and Dana manage, by bringing their individually unique talents to the table.
Greg Spencer purchased this House in 2004
Why Greg Spencer chose Blue Ridge
Amazed by the beauty of the Toccoa River and the inspiring views of the surrounding mountains, Greg wasted no time in securing what is now known as the Toccoa House Properties. During the 1990’s Greg built a small cabin, The Riverside Cabin, on the Toccoa River, and envisioned a larger house that he later built on the ridge above: The Toccoa House, completed in 2000. Next came The Carriage House in 2002, and the in-ground, seasonally heated swimming pool in 2007. Our newest addition, The Grey Heron House, was completed in late 2007. Our pets and property mascots, Budrow and Bobby Jo (BJ is named for the Blue Ridge couple, Bobby and Jo, who gave him to us, thank you so much!!), may greet you if they happen to be on the property when you visit. While they often bark, what they really want is for you to pet them! We lived on the the Toccoa House property for about five years (2003-2008) while building the later cabins and pool, but have recently built a new house on a 'very challenging lot' in Chamblee, Georgia, which we absolutely love (inside I-285 with a five acre wilderness behind our property...thank you Georgia Power and Dekalb County!!). Because of our intense commitment to achieve a superior level of guest satisfaction, we are often on the property, regularly inspecting, organizing, repairing, and maintaining the interior and exterior property ourselves. If you see us on the property strolling the grounds, or giving Budrow and Bobby Jo a walk about, feel free to say 'Hello' and let us know if there is anything we can do to accentuate your guest experience.
What makes this House unique
It is rare to have awesome views AND direct access to over 1000 feet of Toccoa River shoreline. Greg has also combined his 30+ years of experience as a builder and home inspector to create a custom home, with excruciating attention to detail. Every aspect is well above and beyond the typical north Georgia cabin rental.

Property was very nice, just as advertised. Quiet area with all the amenities you could need. Owners were very responsive to questions. Will be back again!
Great family cabin lot of fun
The cabin was great full of things to do while there and very well maintained. Was in a great setting for hikes and seeing nature. The cabin itself had plenty of things to do for our family as well.
Beautiful cabin and location
The cabin was very pretty and well maintained. We enjoyed the basketball goal and the hot tub very much. The kitchen is nice with plenty of dishes and utensils.
Great stay at the this property. Beautiful cabin and beautiful hogback mountain!
