If you are looking for a wonderful place to play on the Chattahoochee River, Sparkleberry Shoals is for you! The property is very private, nestled on 4.2 acres, and offers over 800 spectacular feet of river frontage! The 50 ft. walk from the cabin to the river is almost flat. The glorious Chattahoochee River can be seen from most windows in the house and can be heard from every room. The river along this section has 3 nice whitewater rapids and is wonderful for fishing, tubing, and swimming.
Our place is suitable for parties of 6 or less and is not suitable for large groups or gatherings.
The cabin is newly renovated and furnished and has 3 bedrooms, all with queen size beds, and 2 full baths with tub/shower combinations. The beds are comfortable; 2 have medium-firm mattresses with memory foam toppers and the 3rd has a softer mattress, plus the memory foam.
The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary appliances, cookware, dishes, and tools. The den, kitchen and dining areas are open and comfortable.
We have TVs in all bedrooms and the den, with basic Dish Network channels. The cabin has a washing machine and a dryer.
River access at our cabin is exceptional. The short, 50 ft. walk to the river is almost flat. Guests can enter the river in shallow water and wade out to numerous rocks for sitting or to deeper water to swim and cool off. Our property has over 800 ft. of river frontage and we have paths cleared for the length of the property. Therefore, guests can get in the river with a tube and float from the north end of the property to the south end and then walk back up a laurel-lined lane to the house. There is no better place on the river to have fun all day long playing in the rapids or fishing along the bank of the river. **** Due to insurance restrictions, we do not provide tubes or boats for our guests. We do provide life jackets.
In the evening, guests can relax in our hammocks and gather around a fire in the fire pit.
Guests have use of the entire house and the 4.2-acre property.
My husband and I will be available for help when needed. We live 40 minutes away and work within 10 minutes of the property, so we can get to the cabin quickly if needed.
Our cabin is approximately 17 miles from Helen, GA and 19 miles from Sautee Nacoochee. Both towns offer restaurants and shopping. Helen offers zip-lining, tubing, mini-golf and a water slide. We are located within 20 to 30 minutes from Habersham Winery, CeNita Winery, Yonah Mountain Winery, and The Cottage Vineyard and Winery. Hikers can access numerous wonderful hiking trails that are within an hour's drive.
Kayakers and canoeist can put in at either the 115 bridge and paddle sections III and IV of the Chattahoochee (taking out at our property or going all the way to Mossy Creek) or put in at Duncan bridge and paddle 2 hours down to our cabin. There are wonderful class 1 and 2 rapids on both sections. Wildwood Outfitters is less than a 10-minute drive from the cabin for easy shuttles.
