About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

LOOKING FOR THAT PERFECT GETAWAY. Here it is...the best water on the Toccoa River, from white water shoals to 5' fishing holes on a very wide part of the river. Over 170' of river frontage less than 10 minutes from the charming town of McCaysville. Our cabin is situated on a very private and wooded lot. Across the river you'll find absolutely nothing but beautiful hardwoods and the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad. You'll love our easy access to the river. Steps led directly to the water from our gazebo equipped with a swing and chairs. The fishing is great! Kids will love the rapids for tubing and swimming. The river views are immaculate! Relax in our jacuzzi that sits right on the back porch and can also be accessed directly from the master bedroom patio doors.

Our family chose this property as our 2nd home for many reasons, but one of our most favorite things is the relaxing sounds of the river. When you pull up in the yard, you hear rushing waters and immediately see the river. Our kids love walking up to the shoals and floating back down to our own private beach like area where they have their favorite hang-out rock. An additional yard swing is situated next to our fire pit for pure enjoyment!

Horseshoe Bend Park is just about 20 minutes down the river if they want a little further ride or many other options for longer trips. There's plenty to do in these North Georgia Mountains. If you want to experience a place you'll want to visit time and time again, please come and see what I'm talking about! We have been up and down the Toccoa River and you will not find a place more beautiful than right in our back yard and our guest agree. We are on a wider part of the river that is breath taking.

Our cabin is well maintained, fully stocked kitchen, mattresses you will love to sleep on, new furniture, linens, kitchen tools, and more. A grocery store is just 5-8 minutes away in McCaysville. You will not want to leave once you get here. Come with stress, leave relaxed and revived! Can't wait for you to experience what our other guest have come to love so make your reservation today!!

About Donna Brown

We are a hard working family that has dreamed of owning a riverfront home for quite sometime now. My husband & I have three wonderful children. We are very family oriented and are Christian people. We are so grateful to now have a place we can get away to. God has truly blessed us.

Donna Brown purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Donna Brown chose Northwest High Country

A very private gated community and perfect location. Close to town but completely surrounded by mountains for added privacy. The rushing water is great and so clear and refreshing. Open the windows and enjoy the rushing waters noise. A log home that is the perfect size. All rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The yard both front and back are very level and shady. We love this area of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Swimming, canoeing, tubings, fishing, hiking relaxing in the jacuzzi. Just minutes from Lake Blue Ridge that offers boating, skiing, tubing, etc. Also plenty of shops from McCaysville, Murphy, NC, Blue Ridge to name a few. Be sure to visit the amazing waterfalls nearby. White water rafting is just minutes away as well. NEW Casino in Murphy which is only 30 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from our trip to your cabin and just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay. Everything was wonderful and we couldn't have asked for anything any better. All the family says to book it for a week next year so we can come back. The grand baby loved the choo choo.

We loved it!! It was very quiet & peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin! It was very peaceful with the river running behind it. We could have just sat there all day listen to it! The kids enjoyed playing in it too. The cabin was beautifully decorated & very homey! We plan to come back sometime & stay at this same place!

Wonderful cabin getaway

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful cabin on the river. For safety precautions, VRBO needs to include that Cabin is below Blueridge Damn & water is released most every day. This causes the river to rise from 2-4 foot to 5-6 foot of rapid water. We did not find this out until we arrived & read letter posted at cabin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. When you book our cabin and agree to the policy agreement, in big bold yellow highlighted letters it has the warning about the water release. I do all I can to make sure my guest are aware of this. I certainly am glad you read the post I keep at the cabin as well. Thanks again for staying with us!
