We welcome you to “Riverview Retreat” located on the Toccoa River in Mineral Bluff, Georgia. Mineral Bluff is approximately five miles north of Blue Ridge, GA in the beautiful Smoky Mountains, and approximately ten miles south of the Georgia/Tennessee border.

Riverview Retreat is 5,600 square feet of luxury living with three levels of enjoyment. Only ten minutes from Blue Ridge, you will enjoy shopping, restaurants, antique stores and the small town atmosphere that is so delightful in our mountain getaway. If you like to fish (license required) or kayak, the Toccoa River is a 75-yard walk from the house. The Toccoa River is rated the #1 trout river in all of Georgia. Directly on the river itself you will enjoy an 8,500 square foot private pool area with a 16 x 40 in-ground pool (operational from May 1st - Labor Day), covered pavilion area with kitchen facilities, gas grill, full rest room with shower, and large outdoor fireplace.

The house was built in 2002 and has three levels for your enjoyment. The upper level has three bedrooms (2 with queens and 1 with 2 twin beds) and two full baths, one with jetted tub. Also on the upper level is a loft area with a reading nook and a game table for card or board games. The main floor has a mud room with washer and dryer adjacent to the attached two car garage, large kitchen with six burner Viking gas range with two ovens and griddle, breakfast bar and custom table that can seat ten people and bar area that can seat 6. There is also a separate dining room that can accommodate eight people. The great room, with floor to ceiling stacked stone fireplace and entertainment center with flat screen TV above fire place, also on this level is the master bedroom with a queen bed, Flat screen TV, stack stone fireplace, and full bathroom with double sinks, steam shower, and large jetted tub. The lower level has a very large bedroom with a double and queen-sized bed, and a large bathroom with shower. Private patio access from this bedroom. There is also a great room on this level with a flat screen TV, stack stone fire place, sleeper sofa, game room with nine-foot pool table, air hockey, foos ball, and indoor putting game. For relaxation, enjoy the night sky in the private hot tub located outside on the lower patio.

Every level has great views of the river and the screened porch is a great place to grab a nap, use your laptop (we have wi-fi) or just enjoy the afternoon with your favorite beverage and watch the river glide by. You can even have a picnic on the porch at the teak table. So come and stay at “Riverview Retreat’ for a couple of days or even a week or more, and we’re sure that you will thoroughly enjoy the experience. Unlike most rentals, you can bring your extended family (up to 14 people), at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Hope to see you soon!

About Ashley Gebhard Agent

My wife and I purchased our Riverview Retreat in 2006 where we continue to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. Nestled on a hill overlooking the Toccoa River, our 5,600 square foot home, and 8,500 square foot pool area, is ours to share with you. Enjoy.

Why Ashley Gebhard Agent chose Mineral Bluff

While I am retired and my wife continues to work, we plan to make Rivervew Retreat our permanent home one day. It is our perfect getaway, close to everything, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility that you too can experience.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy swimming, fishing, kayaking, shopping, and do much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

River Retreat was a wonderful choice for our ladies' weekend getaway. Although the home is quite spacious, it offers many cozy areas to relax or read a book. We especially enjoyed the amazing chef's kitchen; it is so organized and well-equipped. Beds were very comfortable, and having temperature controls on all three levels insured the comfort of everyone. Finally, the morning views of the river and valley, especially from the upper level, will take your breath away.

Due to a shift to very warm weather, there was an issue with Lady Bugs during our stay. However, Ashley was prompt and professional in addressing our concerns. On that note, Ashley was attentive and helpful throughout the booking process, and her concern for customer care continued throughout our stay and beyond. She is truly "one phone call away." It is because of Ashley's professionalism and the special way she treats her clients that we will return to River Retreat or stay at another of her properties.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Nothing can be said that hasn’t been said before. This home provides a wonderful experience in a beautiful private location. We loved every aspect of it and won’t hesitate to return for another stay there if we get back to Blie Ridge. One more thing, the agent was marvelous to deal with and met our every request.

Outstanding Guys Golf Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy catching up with great friends. This place had everything you could want or ask for. 8 of us get together every year and this was the best place we have stayed. We will definitely be back. Really enjoyed playing Old Toccoa Farm golf course. Capped off the weekend with a Dawgs win. What more could you ask for. Thanks Bruce & Ashley.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Brought our whole family here for a week and what a wonderful experience. The house was everything we hoped for and more, when not enjoying the pool area there are so many things to do in the neighboring towns and facilities that we did something new everyday. Bruce is a great host and Ashley was so helpful with info about the area and securing the reservation. Would without hesitation recommend for others and rent this property again. Thanks for a great time. Tim

Perfect for our Family Reunion Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time during our week on the Toccoa River at Riverview Retreat, what a lovely property, great views, and an incredible kitchen to prepare meals for our huge crowd. The pool area was a perfect gathering spot for the families with young children, one group rafted down the river one day, others took trips into Blue Ridge to try restaurants and breweries and we made a trip to Mercier Orchards for apples and baked goods. We especially enjoyed our daily walks and runs on the quiet country roads. This house has a ton of room, the Master Suite was perfect for my elderly parents, to be on one level without any stairs, 3 bedrooms upstairs and a perfect area on lower level for teens and young adults to hang out, play pool and use the hot tub. All in all, we were very happy and satisfied with our week in Mineral Bluff. Bruce, the owner, stopped by a few times and between he and Ashley, they were available for anything we needed or had questions about. We would definitely rent this property again, our week was just perfect!
