The Retreat on the Toccoa River is the ideal get-away. Whether you want to relax with the comforts of home; enjoy an active vacation with hiking, fishing, tubing or kayaking (to name just a few activities); or visit the local sites such as waterfalls, vineyards and quaint towns, you'll find it all during your stay.
Located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, our cabin is close to the Appalachian Trail and a variety of other hiking venues. Nearby waterfalls are spectacular, not to mention the starlit skies straight from a planetarium that you can view on clear nights. Sit on the bank of the Toccoa River and listen to the water rushing over rocks, throw a frisbee or toast marshmallows in the backyard fire pit, it's all there for you to enjoy.
