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!

Our cabin was great. Weather was beautiful and cabin was clean

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is great for two adults main floor and for kids in loff and the down stairs bedroom. You get tired walking up and down from basement bedroom to the main floor But if you want quiet you have it a d it takes T 40 minutes to get to bluerisge or blairsville or dahagola because of the mountains roads. But overall it is a very quiet place just make sure you bring all your food first. I would go again by myself. Thank you for allowing us to have a great time with my granddaughters they r 16 my mom who is 92 and my self 62 thanks again and all my prayers they loved the zip lining plus the cute boys. Listening to the river was wonderful. Thanks again.

Awesome scenery, relaxing river sounds.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is like home that sits on the river. The most relaxing place ever, sounds of the river all day and night. Comfy beds, great fishing right out the back door, lots of fire wood for cold nights. We can't wait to go back, best of blue ridge!

I took in a deep breath, and relaxed!

OMG! I just rented a piece of heaven! What a delightful cottage in a wonderful setting! The weather was just at freezing when we arrived, but our host was so kind as to have already turned on the heat to give us a welcome! The wood burning stove actually made the cottage hot! I could not believe it, but it's true! What a cozy, cuddle-inspiring place we enjoyed! The river is right below the deck so, with the door open, we could hear the gurgling sounds ...sweet! The entire area is gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed just driving around and finding neat places to stop. GORGEOUS sunsets! I certainly would not recommend trying to find this in the dark though, so make sure your arrival is in the light of day! Everything was there that i needed. I cooked several meals and wanted for nothing. I, unfortunately, did not see the bathroom floor heater until the 2nd day, so my first shower was a bit chilly ... HA HA! I loved every odd and end that filled this wonderful cabin. The decor is delightfully rustic and entertaining. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the work and time you put in to insuring your guests truly can relax and enjoy their down 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!
