We love Wildacre!
"What a great visit we had at Wildacre!
Our son Charlie and his wife Laura, from Atlanta, our son Andrew from Brooklyn, and Katie and I all were very impressed by your attention to detail and the absolutely wonderful place! Just fantastic!
We had a great time seeing the many details. On the third day I was still seeing things I hadn't noticed before. Its a museum, actually, combined with a luxury suite in a national forest. Really impressive!
We had a few rain showers and that porch was just a wonderful place to sit and enjoy it."

"We had two families for Spring Break from Michigan, 4 adults and 6 children (age 3-10) and we had an awesome experience at River's Bend! The cabin itself is stunning, much better than the pics shown on the site! While it's in a resort community, the resort is huge and this is probably the prime cabin in the whole resort. Right on the river with lots of yard space for the kids, a legit fireplace area set next to the woods, clean and well-functioning hot tub, deer in the backyard, and a perfect setup for multiple families. Three beautifully themed bedrooms for each family to have their own space, plus a kids sleeping space with bunkbeds/futon to give them their own unique area that adjoins the game room. There are decks on every level where you can step out and listen to the sound of the rushing river, overall a very peaceful and relaxing experience. The closest neighbors are through the woods and you don't even notice them, it's secluded within the resort for those seeking privacy. The cabin comes with ability to utilize the resort amenities (indoor/outdoor community pools, mini-golf, tennis, etc...), and this was a nice perk as our kids had a blast in the pool. For those of you that fish, we struck out at the stocked resort pond (we could see tons of fish in there but couldn't lure any of them to bite unfortunately), though I did catch a bass wading in the Coosawattee river just upstream from the cabin (no trout in that stretch from what I understand). Families would have an easy time tubing this river when it warms up, was a bit chilly in early April for us to brave that though we did see kayakers and rafters out there. The best part about this place is the great value, as there is no up-sell from the advertised price for additional occupants, which can significantly change the price of other listings if you have a good sized group. Overall an excellent experience, and should we find ourselves again in northern Georgia this would be a must-stop for us!"

"We had the pleasure of staying for a week with adult children and 18 month old granddaughter. It was a wet week but we all know Mother Nature has a will of her own. The home is spacious and well decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, cooking utensils. We cooked daily and enjoyed time together in the kitchen and outdoor grilling. The lodge is located in a quiet secluded area and the creek is beautiful with access to fish, float or just enjoy the lovely natural surroundings. The access is a little difficult unless you have a 4 wheel drive truck or all wheel drive car. But definitely worth the trip - we enjoyed it as a central hub for fishing, going on some day trips to Blue Ridge, local apple orchards, Amicalola Falls State Park and Helen. All great days with family fun and laughter. We went to the Annual Apple Festival and had a great time too. Hope to go back again - the North Georgia Mountains and views, the local community and the lodge owners were very helpful and responded quickly if we had questions or concerns."
