Fisherman's Retreat is a spacious log cabin directly on the Lower Toccoa River (4 miles below Blue Ridge Lake), with easy level entry into river for the finest trout fishing and family fun. There are no scary mountain roads to navigate and we are less than 2 miles from a Dollar General store for last minute convenience or 5 miles from the Ingles Super market. This extreme North Georgia location (6 miles south of the Tenn/NC line) near Blue Ridge, Georgia offers a romantic escape, with a wonderful trout fishing experience or just plain fun and relaxation. Fisherman's Retreat, a beautiful, large 1700 square foot log cabin, offers the best trout fly fishing in North Georgia from the private, back yard with 320 feet of open easy access to the rocky, Toccoa River. This cabin is located on the lower Toccoa River where the trout fishing is the best you will find.
Fisherman's Retreat has a gated entry at the end of a private road with a large flat lawn that is like a park area and allows children the freedom to romp, play on the tire swing or have a family softball, baseball, or football game. Relax on the river deck at Fisherman's Retreat and roast marshmallows on the outdoor firepit (we provide the wood) while you listen to the rippling waters of the Toccoa.
The 2 acre estate of Fisherman's retreat is really a mini-farm with blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, muscadines, and garden vegetables to be picked when in season. Or you can relax in the riverside arbor swing and watch the fishermen haul them in.
Plenty of parking is provided in the flat, circular drive around the flower garden. The gated entry at the end of the private road provides security but not seclusion and is only 15 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge. Past renters say that this is the best place they have ever stayed and it far exceeded their expectations. Book for a week; you will find that two or three days is not long enough! The extras provided at Fisherman's Retreat are beyond compare............just be sure to read the guest reviews.
Sleeping accommodations in the cabin consist of a king bed in the upstairs master, a trundle bed unit in the adjacent loft, a single bed unit in the adjacent sunroom, a queen bed downstairs, two sofas (one a comfy leather sofa) in the living room may also be used. An additional bedroom with separate porch entry has two twin beds.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Charlotte and I have always loved the North Georgia Mountains and bought our first place here about 15 years ago. When this wonderful place on the Toccoa became available we opted to sell the other mountain property and buy the river cabin. Our children and seven grandchildren love it and tell us we can never sell it. Now we have another home nearby and are able to make this park-like property available to everyone in our rental program. Everybody that stays here always wants to return! (The photo is of one of our daughter's with her family on the side of the river.)
Why the Owner Chose Mineral Bluff: This location on the lower Toccoa river is exceptional due to it unique position approximately half-way between the Blue Ridge Lake dam and the Curtis Switch road take-out. For float fishing entry at the dam and easy take-out at the cabin is one good option, or entry at the cabin and take-out at Curtis Switch bridge is a second option. For summertime tubing has the same options (we have some tubes you can use).
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Our large open yard gives plenty of room for family yard games. We also have a terrific fire pit and provide wood for your marshmallow or hot dog roasting. Of course there is the 4-person hot tub on the spacious patio with gas or charcoal grills. A river deck for spin casting is also provided. A tire swing for the little ones and a horse-shoe court is also provided. There is a river-side arbor swing and garden area with garden vegetables and fruits when in season.
