Mineral Bluff house description

We welcome you to “Riverview Retreat” located on the Toccoa River in Mineral Bluff, Georgia. Mineral Bluff is approximately five miles north of Blue Ridge, GA in the beautiful Smoky Mountains, and approximately ten miles south of the Georgia/Tennessee border.

Riverview Retreat is 5,600 square feet of luxury living with three levels of enjoyment. Only ten minutes from Blue Ridge, you will enjoy shopping, restaurants, antique stores and the small town atmosphere that is so delightful in our mountain getaway. If you like to fish (license required) or kayak, the Toccoa River is a 75-yard walk from the house. The Toccoa River is rated the #1 trout river in all of Georgia. Directly on the river itself you will enjoy an 8,500 square foot private pool area with a 16 x 40 in-ground pool (operational from May 1st - October 1st), covered pavilion area with full kitchen facilities, gas grill, full rest room with shower, and large outdoor fireplace.

The house was built in 2002 and has three levels for your enjoyment. The left has three bedrooms (2 queens and 1 with twin beds) and two baths, one with jetted tub. The main floor has a mud room with washer and dryer adjacent to the attached two car garage, large kitchen with six burner Viking gas range with two ovens and griddle, breakfast bar and custom table that can seat eight people. There is also a separate dining room that can accommodate eight people. The great room, with floor to ceiling stacked stone fireplace and entertainment center, are also on this level as well as the master bedroom with a queen bed, TV, fireplace, and bath with steam steam shower, and large jetted tub. The lower level has a very large bedroom with a full and queen-sized bed, and a large bathroom with shower. There is also a great room on this level with TV, sleeper couch, game room with nine-foot pool table and foos ball, and indoor putting game. For relaxation, enjoy the night sky in the private hot tub.

Every level has great views of the river and the screened porch is a great place to grab a nap, use your laptop (we have wi-fi) or just enjoy the afternoon with your favorite beverage and watch the river glide by. You can even have a picnic on the porch at the teak table and chairs for six people. So come and stay at “Riverview Retreat’ for a couple of days or even a week or more, and we’re sure that you will thoroughly enjoy the experience. Unlike most rentals, you can bring your extended family (up to 14 people), at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Hope to see you soon!

                    We had a large group with multiple families and this was a perfect setting. There was plenty of room for all. Everything we needed was furnished. It is a nice home that is convenient to the grocery and cute towns. We definitely hope to visit again.

                    Riverview Retreat proved a perfect venue for our ladies' weekend retreat from the city! There were 11 of us in all, and we found there to be plenty of space for eating, sleeping, and enjoying ourselves. The view from the house is magnificent, and it's close to local attractions. We enjoyed spending time by the river and hope to return in the summer when we can enjoy the pool and outdoor area more fully.

                    This was a great place for our extended family. We comfortably fit 8 adults and 5 kids. The only heads up is that it appears from the pictures that the pool and pool house are adjacent to the house when, in fact, they are down a steep driveway and across the gravel road.

                    Our family group of 13, ranging in age from 64 to 3 years old, spent a week at Riverview Retreat. The house was spectacular and the amenities were great. Our four grandchildren, ages 3 to 15, had a great time in the pool and roasting marshmallows at the nearby fireplace in the evening. The full size pool, foosball, and air hockey tables were enjoyed by teenagers and adults alike. The large screened-in porch was a great space for reading and dining. The large kitchen with its high-end Viking gas six-burner stove and double ovens made meal preparation easy. The owner was very friendly and helpful, inviting us to contact him at any time, day or night, if we had questions. Even with 13 people, we never felt crowded. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The Ingles supermarket twelve minutes away was great and had everything you might possibly need. The nearby town of Blue Ridge is delightful, with a wide variety of shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend this property to any family looking for a great place to spend a week.

                    the property was amazing! there was plenty of room for our extended family of 12. the set up was perfect and the house was very clean. the house was on a hill so the view was gorgeous and the pool was a definite hit for us. my husband fished every day in the river that the property sits on. the kitchen was gorgeous with all high end appliances. there was plenty of towels and a very nice laundry area. the owner was very accomodating and helpful. he called to make sure we had everything we needed and made sure we knew he was available 24 hours a day if we should have any questions or issues. i cannot say enough good things about our rental experience and would definitely recommend this property.

                    The views are stunning from this house. We were very pleased with the stay we had here. Your really out in the middle of nowhere but within a reasonable distance from all the attractions. The road leading back to the house was a bit questionable especially when it rained heavy. Would suggest a 4x4 or AWD type vehicle to be on the safe side in our opinion. Our family would stay here again if given the chance in the future. I think we have found are retirement area of the north Georgia mountains.

                    My family spend the week at this awesome home with state-of-the-art kitchen, huge screened porch, awesome master bedroom and bath with steam bath. The home is well-built, roomy and well-kept. The pool area has it's own kitchen with huge fireplace that we enjoyed along with the grill having a night of burgers, swimming and roasting marshmallows. The wireless network was flawless and all of us with our ipads and computers were able to stay connected with others sharing pictures of this place. While it was sometimes a warm day and humid, the air conditioner kept the home nice and cool on all levels. Ceiling fans in all of the rooms added to the comfort. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and playroom with the games, billiards and TV. Lots of room to sit down and eat. Everything anyone needs for resting and relaxing is in this home and then some. Loved watching the kayakers and tubers come down the river and we even tried our hand at some fishing. The nearby towns are quaint, and the people are warm and welcoming. We found ourselves going to Mercier's Orchards several times, and loved the nearby Chinese restaurant. So much to do, so little time. It was fun having a large picture puzzle on the table on the porch so we could come and go sitting down to work it and visit. We celebrated Father's Day with a picture show on the large HD TV in the main living room, looping the pictures throughout the day. We had loads of laughter and the very best vacation ever! This is the place to bring your family and friends for the most enjoyable amenities and peace and quiet. Thank you owners for a wonderful time.

                    My extended family of 10 stayed here over the Christmas holiday. We had plenty of room to spread out and the teenage boys loved the basement playroom. The kitchen was great and made cooking our meals a pleasure. The home has everything you could possibly need. Highly recommend the property!

                    The house was very well equiped, clean and beautiful. We were all very comfortable in the home with plenty of space for the adults and young adults. The only issue we had was with the internet- it keep "kicking us off" which complicated being able to work from the home. We had to contact the owner about a concern and he was gracious and very quick to respond and follow up. Overall, the house was great and would love to return during the warmer weather to enjoy the outside living space and fun on the river. Thank you again!

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My wife and I purchased our Riverview Retreat in 2006 where we continue to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. Nestled on a hill overlooking the Toccoa River, our 5,600 square foot home, and 8,500 square foot pool area, is ours to share with you. Enjoy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mineral Bluff:
                  While I am retired and my wife continues to work, we plan to make Rivervew Retreat our permanent home one day. It is our perfect getaway, close to everything, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility that you too can experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy swimming, fishing, kayaking, shopping, and do much more.
