NOW HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE! This Cabin in the North Georgia Mountains is Located on a Beautifully Wide, Easily Accessible part of the Toccoa River. The Cabin is Cedar on the outside and Pine on the inside, giving you the True Uniqueness of the 'Cabin Experience'. The cabin can sleep up to 6 people. The downstairs bedroom has a KING bed and the upstairs Loft has 2 twin beds. It also has its own Private Balcony overlooking the Pond. Downstairs, there are two couches. There is also a rocking chair and recliner, all in front of a real wood burning stone fireplace.
The Front Porch overlooks the Pasture area and the Back Porch faces the River that is just steps away There is a picnic table on the back porch and our swing is very unique in that it is twin size ie: wider and longer than other swings. Firewood is provided for the fireplace and there is an outdoor Fire Ring for summer Marshmallow roasts.I charge a very nominal rate of $5/night for firewood.
The Kitchen is well equipped, down to the spices. You do have to bring your own Linens (sheets, pillowcases and towels)and leave the cabin Clean. I am up frequently to see that your accommodations are in perfect condition.
There is also a laundry area with full size washer and dryer. The office area has a desk, phone, fax/copier machine. Internet service is with WIFI DSL. We also have a network extender which allows most cell phones to work in the cabin.
We have 2 flat screen TVs with Direct TV Satellite service and the one in the living room has a DVR box, allowing you to record two programs and watch another.
Located on more than 20 acres, the grounds are beautifully maintained with plantings that attract birds and butterflies. We keep cans of feed for the birds, deer, and fish and ask that our guests keep the critters fed. It is not uncommon to wake up and find a pasture full of deer!
You can walk over creeks, pan for gold, and picnic at the river or relax on the swing by the catfish pond under a gazebo, roofed with honeysuckle. Feed the Trout and Catfish and be amazed at their feeding frenzy. The catfish pond is catch and release, the trout pond is feed only. But you can fly fish or fish from the bank of the river for more than 1200'. This is a section of the river that is open year round so you can keep all you catch. You do not need a fishing license or trout stamp when fishing from private property. There is also a 'Beach' area where even small children can splash and play in the river. Bring a float and you can float from the bridge down to the cabin.
While the mountain has its own trails, you can also hike the Appalachian or Benton McKaye trail or walk to close by waterfalls. Within a 30 minute drive you can visit Lake Winfield Scott, Dockery Lake, Lake Nottely in Blairsville, or Lake Blue Ridge.
