UNLIKE MOST RIVER homes in this area::: NO STEEP STEPS or driveway to river, so you can actually enjoy your stay and use the river!!

Read their sites carefully or ask as sometimes they do not tell you about this.

The N Georgia Mountains like it used to be. This cottage is in the woods, quiet area & lots of wildlife. Deer, turkey, beaver, etc.

On 14+ very secluded acres, steps from the Chattahoochee River

Our places are the CLEANEST you will find anywhere.


We have 6 tubes, 4 kayaks, a slide in your backyard, swing next to the riverand horse shoe pit in your back yard and a rope swing for your use that is a short walk from cottage. We keep up with our equipment some homes do not.

Will be glad to make any arrangements you'll need to make your stay

We pride ourselves in having almost 40% repeat renters.

Very Quiet area of the river so you have the place pretty much to yourselves!!

We have tubes available from May to end of September, unless weather or water temp permits it sooner or later.

Kayaks are out from March till end of October, unless weather and water temp permit.

                                                                        My family and I had the most amazing stay at this beautiful cabin this past weekend. Close enough to Helen to enjoy what it has to offer, but far enough away to relax and enjoy nature. Everything you need is right here! Not only is the view beautiful but the sound of the river at night is peaceful and calming. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        Been showing pictures of them to people around here and they were impressed with the amount and size of the trout . (thank you for sharing the pictures with me)

                                                                        Your guys did a great job considering the time of year and the river being so cold.

                                                                        We truly hope to have you come back soon. The fish are waiting.

Right on the river with kayakes and tubes, fire pit, horse shoes, hot tub, and the cutest cottage. This place is decorated so nicely. It is at the very end of a road and extremely private. We will definitely be renting again!

                                                                        Michael D.

                                                                        Overall the experience was good. The outside was beautiful with the river access,the fire pit, the swing etc. You do not have complete privacy though as with one situation there were people coming to the end of the driveway parking and looking around. The screened-in porch was perfect for sitting out at night enjoying the moment.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        So glad you had a good time. We are constantly updating the cottage. After a long and busy summer, things tend to show wear and tear and need replacing. We do this in the winter, go through the home and replace what's needed. Just this month we bought a new duvet cover from pottery barn for master bedroom and a new microwave, as it was looking a worn. We continue to rent replace and repair till spring.

                                                                        Last year the major project was we redid both baths.

                                                                        So it's an on going process.

                                                                        We try to keep things as nice as possible.

                                                                        This home is at the end of a road so there is little traffic. But people do come down once in awhile and fish etc. This renter was here on a holiday and it is always busier then. We get a lot of lookers lol.
