I stayed with my family of six May 25-June 1, 2013. We found the cabin to be clean and well stocked with everything needed in the kitchen and the entire house. There were plenty of towels and bedding items to be comfortable. All the appliances (including A/C and heater) were in good working order. The pictures shown online are very accurate. It is an older property but it is well maintained. It has a nice wrap-around porch and a screened-in lanai. The location makes you feel very secluded but yet you are within 15-20 from the town of Dahlonega. The manager, Ashley, was very nice and helpful. I had to call her with some questions initially when I arrived and she was available always. It is a safe place. Be aware that you are in the woods. We saw some spiders and also two scorpions in the house. The scorpions freaked us out a little bit but this is what you'll get going to the woods. I have been stung by jelly fish going to the ocean! Something also to be aware of is that the road going into the development is narrow and winding going up the mountain. You pass many properties and then the road gets down even narrower to just one lane. At that point, it becomes a private and very steep one-lane road the last 1/2 mile or so. Something to consider if you are faint-hearted driving in that type of terrain. The property overlooks a river with some rapids in front of it. There is a small sandy beach-like area just before that rapids upstream. It also has big humongous rock at the far end of the property where the owner has made a platform that has some chairs. This a wonderful area to relax and read a book. We traveled around the area to Helen, GA, (about a 30 minute drive) which a very nice town with lots of shopping. I highly recommend to visit that town. We spent more time going Helen than going to Dahlonega. Dahlonega is also a nice town with some shops and restaurants but not as many stores to shop as you would find in Helen. There is a super Walmart in Dahlonega. All in all, we had a great time in a comfortable clean and well-maintained property. I would highly recommend it and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Home away from Home...
Home away from Home...
Let me begin by saying I personally know the property owners. I may be biased, but I am also quite honest. My husband and I have not been able to vacation at the home as much as we'd like due to scheduling conflicts, but in my opinion, it is definitely home away from home. The peacefulness and serenity is so refreshing that even a few days at this property is worth it! I am also a clean-freak and have severe allergies-and I can honestly say I would eat off these floors! The house is spotless, decorated with coziness, and the beds are incredibly comfortable! We are reserving our dates in August to take advantage of the great kayaking on the river and drink our fill of the wine at Wolfe Mountain winery...plus I love browsing the shops in downtown Dahlonega, the candy store has the best taffy ever!!

A Wonderful Weekend
A Wonderful Weekend
Stayed for the weekend while visiting the North Georgia college campus. Had two teenage sons, and grandfather along, and all had a wonderful time - was peaceful, but also adventurous, as the boys had their grandfather (84+) hiking and climbing around the property. Very close to the square for restaurants, but would have been just as happy staying put and cooking. Super location, great house, beautifully decorated inside and out, and the screen porch and outside firepit were two favorite gathering spots. The river is beautiful, amazing and relaxing. Our only complaint would be that our stay was too short to enjoy it all!! Thanks!

Year Purchased: 2005
About: My Bride of 39 years and I are very excited to share our special place with you and yours. We are full time residence of South Florida, near Ft Myers. We have owned RiverWoods Cottage Retreat since October 2005. The property has all the ammenities necessary to make my Bride and I want to return time and time again. We are so close to everything yet still in a wonderful private secluded location. We have the best of all worlds. We visit Dahlonega several times and year and really enjoy ever moment on this property. The local people of Dahlonega and surronding areas are outstanding. They are full of kindness. Have fun and enjoy all that RiverWoods Cottage Retreat has to offer.
My Bride and I searched for 8 years before selecting this location. We searched all of North Geargia with my Brother and Sister-in-law, countiued into North and South Carolina. We stayed at Bed and Breakfast locations in most towns visited. The first town visited was Dahlonega. I told my Wife, this is my choice but we continued on. Later returnning to Dahlonega and making Dahlonega our choice. The decision was based on the waterfront property location,privacy, great fishing, unbeliveable view of the river and surroundings, the people, food,wineries, festivals, and great shopping. This is the "Biggest Little Town" I have ever visited. So much to see and visit. Enjoy!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The trip to RiverWoods is very unique. The drive from the main road is beautiful. You might see deer, turkeys, beaver and birds of all kinds. When you arrive, the firist thing you hear is the roar of the mighty Chestee River. As you explore the property you will find areas where the water is calm and quite,. You continue along the 600 foot frontage and you will hear the that wonderful sound at the "Big Rock Bend", located convinently at the back side of the house. There you will find the fire pit for those marshmello/ hot dog roast in the evenings. For those looking for quite time, follow the walkway at the side of the house and you will find " Leaning Rock" with a beautiful view of the Chestee River. Have a seat, relax, enjoy. Don't forget to look for "Hammock Beach", a nice sandy area at waterside.
