Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Come stay at the “Riverhouse 1” on the peaceful Etowah River in the Northeast Georgia Mountains, near historic Dahlonega, the first gold rush town in the USA. The house is located in a private gated community with just three homes...very private.

Riverhouse is in a great location. The Dahlonega Square is just 7 miles away. Experience the Gold Museum, Holly Theater, fine dining, and shopping all within walking distance in town. If coming for a special occasion, Riverhouse is just 6.5 miles from Monteluce Vineyards and Winery and 10 miles to Waters Mill Wedding Venue.

The home has three bedrooms each with private baths. Both guest bedrooms have two double beds in them. Master bedroom has a king bed and private jetted jacuzzi bath and shower. The loft has a private full bath with 2 twin beds. A total of 4 ½ baths. The large open living room has a wood burning fireplace and a view of the river just 50 feet away. A fully stocked kitchen is off the living room and catering of meals available upon request. Just get in the car and “come on”, we’ll do the rest!

The Etowah River is one of Northeast Georgia’s best kept secrets! The mountain laurel and rhododendrom blooming in spring and early summer is breathtaking. The water is clean and clear and comes out of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The house is 50 feet off the river and the sounds of the river can be heard from inside the home, screen porch and generous deck. Each bedroom has a deck and the master bedroom opens to the main deck.

The trees are oak, hickory, poplar sourwood and white pine which gives a burst or fall colors that sourround the home. The river is shallow in front of the home and is great for “wet” fun or just sitting in the river in a lawn chair to enjoy your favorite cocktail. It is also a great place for children to play and explore. The deer and wild turkey “live” in the yard and eat the landscaping right up to the house. Local birds and squirrels populate the trees.

Riverhouse is the perfect balance of great proximity to Dahlonega attractions and experiencing the sounds and sights of nature! Come on and enjoy the tranquility of the Etowah Riverhouse!

Half the girls arrived on Thursday to start the celebration for Debbie's Birthday. Denyse arrived on Friday and we went to Monteluce for a wine tour and tasting. We had lunch at the Oar House...it was awesome! Saturday we were picked up by Trudy at Crown Mountain Limo and had lunch and wine tasting at Wolf Mountain Vineyards. Then, Cavender Creek Winery and Frogtown Cellars for wine tastings. Finally, to Dahlonega Square for shopping and dinner at Corkscrew Cafe.

Enjoyed Dahlonega and this awesome home! Thank you!!

Love Dahlonega, and what a beautiful, secluded property!

  • 5 of 5

This being our 2nd time staying in north Georgia, we knew mostly what to expect and do when we got there. This house and property is top notch and very well maintained. The location right on the Etowah river is the icing on the cake. Everyday after hiking or doing whatever, it was great to simply lay in the river and cool down (with a beer of course).

This place is close to everything we wanted to do, and we did them all....horseback riding, Amicolola falls, Ruby falls, Woody gap, kayaking on the Chestatee, and zip-lining at the Amicolola lodge. The only thing missing were cards and board games, but we remedied that with a stop to the local Walmart in town. Overall, it was a fantastic place, the weather held out perfect, and the crowds were next to nothing during the week.

Fabulous home in the N. Ga. Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Riverhouse 1. The home is absolutely gorgeous and stocked with everything you need- just bring food. We loved being on the river, sitting by the fire and enjoying the hot tub. Great place for gathering with friends or family!

Wonderful accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

House is lovely, well situated and well stocked, great setting, clean, well maintained. Only complaint is that we were given the wrong access code and first arrivals couldn't get in. Fortunately, I could retrieve an old email with phone number because none was provided on the instruction, directions sheet. This could have been disasterous.

Loved the river, enjoyed the fire pit during a wedding rehearsal dinner. Did see deer an other side of river. Owners live close by so when we lost power during a storm they were there to help

Christmas in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I gather in the mountains every year for Christmas. We have been looking for the perfect cabin for our family Christmas and we loved this place! It was too warm for the fireplace inside, but we spent a lot of time around the fire pit! The fire pit was great for the cool nights. The sky was clear and you could see the stars and you can here the river babbling over the rocks while sitting at the fire pit! There were people that aren't able to get around well and this place was perfect! The property has a ton of amenities and there was always something to do! I have a bad back and the bed in the master bedroom was comfortable! I woke up refreshed everyday! The property is absolutely beautiful and it's secluded! The Turners were great hosts and their property is awesome as well! We can't wait to come back! Thanks again for everything!

Beautiful Peaceful Property

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented the home for a girls getaway weekend. The home is so comfortable, clean and has everything you need. We used the fire pit, hot tub, screen porch and deck the entire weekend. The river was too cold but if it had been warmer, we would have enjoyed it too. We all can't wait to go back!!
