Blue Ridge cabin description

The River Ridge Lodge is a 5 bedroom 3.5 bath 4,500 square foot riverfront cabin that has 170 feet of riverbank frontage located directly on the upper Toccoa River in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area. The upper end of the river is most desirable as it is a slow meandering river perfect for tubing and trout fishing! This is a genuine log home not a typical Blue Ridge wood sided cabin. This cabin was built with massive western cedar logs with each one being unique that range in size from 10-12 inches in diameter. Cabin features; : top of the line gourmet kitchen, game room with pool table, home theater room and large gazebo with fireplace that sites next to the riverbank.

Toccoa river views can be viewed from just about every room. Upscale designer rustic furnishings offering beauty and comfort.

The layout of the house features two master suites with each having its own soaking tub. One suite is located on the lower level the other suite is on the upper level and both have top of the line king-size pillow top mattresses. The main floor features two guest bedrooms with a shared bathroom with each bedroom having a queen-size pillow top mattress. The fifth bedroom is on the lower level features twin beds that also have pillow top mattresses. Most of the bedrooms have satellite TV with remote controls. The loft area provides a built in workstation, high-speed wireless internet with a cozy seating area with sofa and two rocking chairs.

The cabin has a Home Theater room as well as a large recreation room with a pool table. The hot tub is located directly outside the family room and can accommodate eight guests. Three decks, porches, and balconies provide a wonderful opportunity to take in the riverfront views.

The gourmet kitchen features granite counter tops, double dishwashers and a professional six-burner range and double ovens. We have done our best to provide just about every small appliance for our guest’s enjoyment. The dining area has exceptional views of the river. The river is close enough to enjoy the sounds of the river flowing while visiting with friends while dining.

The Toccoa River provides some of the best trout fishing in north Georgia, along with swimming and tubing down the river. Guided or self-guided canoe, hiking, or bicycling trips are also available. Grassy picnic area and horseshoe pit located on the grounds and a large gazebo with wood burning fireplace sites directly next to the river. For those with more leisurely pursuits in mind, the Town of Blue Ridge is just nine miles away and boasts some of the best antique shopping anywhere. The sightseeing train ride along the Toccoa River valley makes for a delightful morning or afternoon adventure.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: Our story begins with reading a lovely article about the charming town of Blue Ridge. We live on the west coast and our son was living in Florida so we thought the location would be ideal for finding a cabin for family gatherings. I can recall the drive up from Atlanta being so beautiful even in the winter. The moment we saw the cabin we felt drawn to the beautiful tranquil setting and could not resist the magnificent sounds of the meandering river. The cabin was under construction at the time so we were able to make changes to the layout and design of the kitchen. Once completed we found it to be even better than expected but unfortunately did not spend the time with family as originally intended. Each passing year we would say to ourselves we need to spend more time with family but our careers seemed to always take priority. Until one tragic day our lives would be forever changed by a phone call. Our precious son had suddenly passed away. We would give anything to take those years back and regret every day that we put our careers ahead of spending time with family. I can still hear the excitement in our sons voice about planning a spring trip to the cabin that never would come to pass. It has been hard for us to take the journey back and at one point we were going to sell the cabin. Thankfully, the house did not sell and as the years passed the grief slowly was been replaced with cherished memories. What helps us with our healing is when guests take the time to share their own special memories of happiness and joy spent with family at the cabin.

          Why the Owner Chose Blue Ridge:
          Blue Ridge is a very special place business with our contractor was for the most part done with a handshake and I can say for a fact that Southern Hospitality is alive and well. I will always have fond memories of our neighbors welcome baskets. The best feature by far is the location we are in the heart of the Aska Adventure area on the upper Toccoa River. This location ahs the best trout fishing. Everyone loves the large gazebo with fireplace at the rivers edge. This is a genuine log home that was crafted with real western cedar logs which gives you a totally different feel. River Ridge Lodge stays much cooler in the summer and is really cozy and comfortable in the winter because the logs hold in most of the heat. The home theater room is a real plus. The curved benches around a large round dining table with a lazy susan in the center makes it ideal for sharing a meal with family and friends.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          Riverfront, Riverfront, Riverfront...catch trout from our riverbank and listen to the sounds of the river to lull you to sleep at night. Our gazebo with wood burning fireplace is a huge hit and everyone loves our Home Theater room!
