About the owner: My Bride of 42 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 every 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.
Why the Owner Chose Dahlonega: 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 quiet. As you continue along the 600 ft. frontage you will hear the 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 marshmallow/hot dog roasts in the evenings. For those looking for quiet time, follow the walkway at the side of the house and you will find 'Leaning Rock' with a beautiful view of the Chestatee River. Have a seat, relax, and enjoy. Don't forget to look for 'Hammock Beach', a nice sandy area at the waterside.
