Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, Sleeping Loft, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

River Ridge cabin now has free, high-speed wireless Internet.

Less than 15 minutes from town and 20 minutes from the Ocoee Olympic Whitewater Center, River Ridge feels a world away. Located at the end of the gravel road, the cabin is peaceful and relaxing. It sits on top of a ridge overlooking the beautiful whitewater Toccoa River with the mountains of Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina as a backdrop. You can hear the sound of the cascading river echoing up the valley. The spacious lodge-style interior sleeps up to six. The main level has a large, fully-equipped kitchen, a great room with HDTV and home theater sound and dining area with a cathedral ceiling, and a master suite with a walk-in closet and double-vanity master bath with tub/shower. The master bedroom has a queen bed, HDTV, and double glass doors that open onto the screened porch. The loft bedroom has a queen bed and a glass door that opens onto the upper porch. The second bath is next to the loft bedroom and has a tub/shower. The open loft area has two single beds and a reading nook. We provide everything for your stay except food and personal items.

Not what I thought it was going to be like!

  • 3 of 5

Indoor pictures a true & accurate. Lovely inside decor etc. Directions were mostly on point. Driveway is a bit steep but thank God no issues; I had a toyota corrolla. Kitchen was reasonably stocked. I was so happy to be away and to have found something last minute.

Cons: When I rent a cabin, the view must be excellent, inspiring or breathtaking- it is a must for me and even though the inside was comfortable and beautiful, I was seriously disappointed with the view.

When you step out of the master bedroom which is on the first floor and onto the balcony, there is another cabin smack in the middle of the view. The picture that is posted on this website is a zoomed in version of what you actually get to see when you step out onto the balcony. I feel that more accurate outdoor pictures needed to be posted so that people renting can decide for themselves, if that is an issue or not because it was for me!

Hot tub is open air which I love but it is facing in the direction of the other cabin which made me uncomfortable because, I felt on display a bit. First night no one was in the cabin facing the one I was in but the next day there was a huge party lots of people across from me and going out there to use the hot tub felt awkward so I put up towels for more privacy.

I also had water pressure issues with all the showers on the second night. Water was just not coming out with any pressure so I had to take a shower by pressing my body against the wall to try to use whatever water was coming out to shower LOL.

I contacted John, he at least tried to help but ultimately couldn't come out to fix it that night. He did; however, acknowledged the issue and tried to rectify it so I appreciate that gesture!

Lastly, the people who rented the cabin in front of mine had some type of reunion party going on, loud music, talking outside etc... kind of disruptive and a big no no in other cabins. Luckily the noise only was obvious, when I stepped out onto the balcony. Not John's fault; however, I think it is a good idea to have a talk with the other rental property owners in the area and agree on a noise clause to protect those that want no loud and disruptive noise and have a contact number at hand so one can call and get it handled, if it does occur.

I was not as impressed with this cabin as I had hoped to be but I made the very best of it and enjoyed the inside. The owner John seems like a good person. I just think the outdoor pics should be more accurate.

Great property for the price, lovely view.

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely the nicest property I found at this price point. Gorgeous view, we enjoyed the covered porches, rocking chairs and hot tub. The kitchen is not the best equipped, so bring your own baking dishes if you need one. We had some issues with water pressure, but they were sending someone to check it out after we visited. We would happily come back here for our girls weekend next year.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin and appreciated the value represented by our low rates and no cleaning fee charges. I am sorry about the temporary water pressure issue. That has been fixed, and we again have the strong pressure this cabin has always had. John Orr Owner/Manager

Beautiful mountain cabin excites with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The property was very easy to find, thanks to the provided directions. Everything was clean and orderly when we arrived. There's a 24-hour Walmart that's about 15 minutes away. The views were gorgeous from both levels of balcony. The entire stay was excellent, just be sure to bring your own board games or movies (what's there is limited and the Internet is satellite-based so no streaming).
