About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Unique, rustic mountain cabin on the rapid, fish-stocked Toccoa River with a game room area in the basement level. Gorgeous mountain views and a serene porch overlooking the river. Path to a great fishing spot just below porches and visible from the porches. Views of the river from every room and wonderful gurgling sounds of the river audible from all bedrooms.

The tin roof provides an awesome experience in rainy or snowy weather. Great close by hiking trails along the Appalachian Trail and numerous waterfalls in the area. A great place to just relax and rock on the porches after a day of touring the antique shops in the neighboring towns and Blue Ridge or a train ride through the mountains to and from Tennessee. All this with the modern conveniences of home-satellite TV as well as DVD, VCR,CD player and wifi. A place you never want to leave behind and will want to plan a return trip to our little piece of heaven!

Amazing little cabin on the river

  • 5 of 5

We have really fallen in love with the nice, quiet cabin on the river. It has all the amenities for a home away from home. The back porch is the best place to spend the days just rocking in the chairs as you listen to the water below rolling, people playing, and watching wildlife at its best. Town of Blue Ridge is about 30 mins from the cabin and a fairly simple drive where you will find shopping and dining. I would follow the advice of the Owners and do not try find the cabin after dark as it is secluded in the woods. We can not wait to return. Thank you to Mr. And Mrs. Priest for providing an awesome getaway!

quiet, peaceful, beautiful location overlooking a flowing river. Swing and rocking chairs on back porch as well as grill for cooking which all got plenty of use. Pleasant walks near the cabin every evening. Ample cooking supplies in the kitchen. Washer and dryer on site. Will definitely go back. Owner is a pleasure to do business with.

We had a really nice stay in the cabin. It was awesome being right on the river and being able to walk right down and go fishing anytime we wanted to. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay. Communications with the owners was always enjoyable and they were so nice. It was my birthday and thanks to you guys I had a wonderful time.

Additional activities include birdwatching from the two front porches and viewing of the abundant wildlife. Also enjoy tubing on the river or visiting one of the many nearby waterfalls. There are many trailheads for the infamous Appalachian Trail nearby (the closest is a 2 mile hike from the cabin), among other trails and rural mountain roads to traverse.

Historic downtown Blue Ridge makes for a fun activity filled with shops and restaurants (and even it's own brewery!). Or relax in front of the fire-burining stove or on the idyllic front porch with a good book and enjoy our piece of heaven!
