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.
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. We are located within 20 to 30 minutes from Habersham Winery, CeNita Winery, Yonah Mountain Winery, and The Cottage Vineyard and Winery.
Kayakers and canoeist can put in at either the 115 bridge and paddle sections 3 and 4 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.

About Pam Kirkpatrick
My husband and I are nature lovers and hike and paddle as often as possible. We are fortunate to own 2 wonderful homes, one in the mountains and one on the river. We are happy to share our river paradise with other river lovers.

Why Pam Kirkpatrick chose Cleveland
Sparkleberry Shoals is one of the most accessible and wonderful slices of the Chattahoochee River. Our long stretch of river is shallow upon entrance, with numerous large rocks to explore and sit upon. Guests can then wade out into deeper pools of water for swimming and fishing, or put a tube in the river on one end of the property for an exciting float through 3 rapids to take out on the other end of the property. The short, 50 ft. walk from the cabin to the river is almost flat. The river is loud and can be heard from all rooms in the cabin. There is no better place to play hard all day and rest and relax at night.

Beautiful house- feels like you're staying with friends.....very welcoming.
Great location. Close to wineries, state parks, mountains.
We had a wonderful stay! Beautiful location!
This home was very well appointed and the setting is beautiful. Had cocktails on the deck overlooking the river. Rapids provided wonderful background music. Wil definitely come back! Thank you to our host Pam!
We would love to have you back anytime-- you were wonderful guests!
The pictures don't capture how beautiful it is.
The cabin is as advertised and the property is wonderfully private. I was surprised at how close the the river the cabin is. There is a wonderful deck the length of the back of the cabin and a screened room off the main level bedroom. It rained our first night and it was fun to watch it from the screened room and listen to it on the metal roof. The cabin is decorated so nicely with a lot of attention to detail. I don't think I would want to rent it out!! There is everything you need in the kitchen, again, every detail is covered with all the comforts of home. There was even coffee there for us. We enjoyed it so much we would absolutely go back and even stay a little longer. Pam was wonderful to deal with and very responsive. I highly recommend it to anyone really, but especially if you love privacy and nature.
Thank you Julie! We enjoyed hosting you and your friends and we hope you come back again!
Great property. Well maintained and tastefully decorated.
The river is the main attraction. The deck is fantastic. 👍
Stunning cabin with incredible views
Sparkleberry Shoals gave our family true quality time together just enjoying the back deck listening to the river. It was like being on a movie set. The interior of the cabin is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The outdoor deck and coffee patio are extraordinary. Looking forward to returning again in the Fall. Thank you for the hospitality - we were sorry to leave.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay Leslie and we look forward to hosting you again!
Charming cabin, great river location, and relaxing atmosphere
My husband, son, and I spent 5 nights at Sparkleberry Shoals.. It is a very nice clean cabin in a great location. It is right on the river with more privacy than staying in downtown Helen. The river is just right for older children to explore, and you can sit on the deck and listen to the Chattahoochee and watch geese and beaver in the morning and late afternoon. We also enjoyed riding into Helen for tubing, horseback riding, and exploring the mountains. Ms. Pam is very helpful. We are already talking about returning next year and hope to stay here again.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay Kim. We do hope you guys come back! You were great guests.
