Cornelia, GA, USA
  • House
  • Bedrooms2
  • Sleeps4
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths1
  • Minimum Stay2 - 5 nights

Fish, Swim, Kayak, hike or just relax, and recharge, as you listen to the flowing water of the Chattahoochee river at this cozy mountain retreat. Look out at the spectacular view of Georgia's national forests, and the Chattahoochee river rushing across river rocks from any of our three decks. Enjoy our private beach, where you will find a pool area and several gentle rapids. Put your chair at the river’s edge, dip your feet in the clear cool water, read your favorite book, or go for a swim. Take your fishing pole and try your luck at catching bass or trout and grill it back at the cabin.

The cabin’s three high decks provide a dramatic view, but are not appropriate for kids under five years of age. All three decks overlook the Chattahoochee and have comfortable outdoor furnishings as well as a grill on middle deck. Enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee, breakfast or a picnic near the beach area as you take in the magnificent view before you. Every room has been tastefully decorated. Downstairs bedroom has a Queen bed, and full bathroom with tub. Upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and an additional half bathroom also a queen size electric air-mattress in closet (for kids). The cabin is best suited for a family, one or two couples, but no more then four adults. Due to a small septic tank six people including day guests is the maximum capacity. The cabin has everything you’ll need for a week long, or month long getaway, The kitchen has brand new appliances and is well stocked, washer and dryer, as well as Wifi are all available to you. Each and every room fills with the sound of the gentle rush of the river. A fireplace in the living room gives this cabin a cozy feel in the cooler months. Upstairs you will find the game room with foosball table and air hockey. A flatscreen TV is in the living room and upstairs bedroom with movies at your fingertips. Located close to Helen(25 min.), Sauté Nacochee, Clarksville, Cleveland, and Dahlonega, but just far enough away for a peaceful retreat in this private community. When you are ready to explore further,you are close enough to everything; including shops, restaurants and entertainment, award winning wineries, art galleries, theater and more.

If you lack for anything, we have family who takes care of the cabin and lives close by. Check in is at 4:00pm and check out is at 11:00am.

Our cabin is completely smoke free and we do not allow pets, for health reasons of some of our family members, who also use the cabin.

Thank you for your Consideration in this matter.

                                          Cozy & comfortable cabin

                                          VERA B.West Bend, Iowa

                                          Well furnished quiet home. Wonderful scenic location even in the dead of winter.

                                          Homey Cabin with amazing view

                                          Maggie V.

                                          Me and my husband stayed at this cabin for our 10 year anniversary.

                                          The place was really cute and homey.

                                          The view was amazing in the back ! House was very well stocked

                                          with pretty much everything you needed.

                                          Loved the reading area inside in the corner of the living room .

                                          Very creative! We will definitely be returning for future vacations!

                                          Thank you Greg for sharing your home with us:)

                                          Thank you Greg and Lori for your hospitality! The river house was beautiful and perfect for our short get away to north Georgia.

                                          Perfect little weekend getaway

                                          perfect relaxing weekend

                                          Relaxing getaway

                                          Theresa T.Atlanta, GA

                                          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the River House. The view and sounds of the river was just fantastic. The house was very clean and comfortable. My favorite part was waking up early and enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck overlooking the river. The kids enjoyed the beach, tubing and playing foosball! Very relaxing! We'll be back!

                                          Spectacular family getaway

                                          Lisa R.Beverly Hills , FL

                                          We spent out last summer family vacation here at the river house. The location was perfect...not too far from conveniences, yet not to close to the tourist congestion. Although we did enjoy a short time in the town of Helen, we spent most of our time enjoying everything this beautiful part of the country had to offer. We were able to take some spectacular hikes to Anna Ruby Falls and the more challenging, yet worth while hikes, up Yonah Mtn, Brasstown Bald, and Tallulah Falls. We got to do some tree top ziplining and white water rating down the Chatooga. Also, as a pleasant added bonus, we stumbled upon an opportunity to do some apple picking in Long Creek SC. Some afternoons, we spent a good hour or two just tubing the best runs on this stretch of the Chatahoochee...right in the back yard. We'd float down the river and hike back up, over, and over, again. We had a blast! Thank you again for sharing your home and giving us the chance to make lasting memories!

                                          We have put together a folder at the river house, for your convenience, with all the many fun activities you will find in the area. Helen, Sautee and the surrounding area, offers many activities, as well as, time to relax away and refresh. The weather is mostly temperate and you will find the sound of the river and national forest on the other side of the river a wonderful surrounding for a rejuvenating weekend or a week away from the daily grind.
