About the property

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our recent stay at the River House was exactly what we needed badly. We were looking for a private home/cabin a little off the beaten path with lot's of privacy. We couldn't have wished for more; The atmosphere of the cabin, the layout, the grounds around it and that "million$view" and caring neighbors just a mile away we still miss every day. Will we return? ABSOLUTELY!

Amazing House and View!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend my family and I just had at the River House. When we walked out on to the deck and saw the view of the River we were all floored. It was just gorgeous! The house was perfect as well. Very well kept with all the amenities one would need for the weekend. The children and adults had an absolute blast playing in the river. The owners were a joy to work with and I would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting the Northeast Georgia area.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This home was ideal for our Memorial Day weekend. Our 3 kids (14, 13, & 10) spent nearly the entire weekend in the river, fishing, swimming, and exploring. There were plenty of comfortable spaces for my husband and I to lounge and read. The home itself is very clean and inviting, we could not have asked for a better time!

Beautiful Home on the River

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this lovely home. Perfect for my husband, son (9) and I to get away for a long weekend. The three decks provide perfect areas to relax, and the private beach was so much fun! You can easily walk out onto the rocks in the river, just steps away from the house. The sound of the river is just so peaceful. There are also great waterfalls and trails a short drive away. The kitchen had everything we needed, bedrooms were comfortable, you can relax by the fire or sit out on the deck and read a book. We came back replenished and rested. Greg was so kind and helpful, and we hope to come back again soon.
