Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Come stay at the “Riverhouse 1” on the peaceful Etowah River in the Northeast Georgia Mountains, near historic Dahlonega, the first gold rush town in the USA. The house is located in a private gated community with just three homes...very private.

Riverhouse is in a great location. The Dahlonega Square is just 7 miles away. Experience the Gold Museum, Holly Theater, fine dining, and shopping all within walking distance in town. If coming for a special occasion, Riverhouse is just 6.5 miles from Monteluce Vineyards and Winery and 10 miles to Waters Mill Wedding Venue.

The home has three bedrooms each with private baths. Both guest bedrooms have two double beds in them. Master bedroom has a king bed and private jetted jacuzzi bath and shower. The loft has a private full bath with 2 twin beds. A total of 4 ½ baths. The large open living room has a wood burning fireplace and a view of the river just 50 feet away. A fully stocked kitchen is off the living room and catering of meals available upon request. Just get in the car and “come on”, we’ll do the rest!

The Etowah River is one of Northeast Georgia’s best kept secrets! The mountain laurel and rhododendrom blooming in spring and early summer is breathtaking. The water is clean and clear and comes out of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The house is 50 feet off the river and the sounds of the river can be heard from inside the home, screen porch and generous deck. Each bedroom has a deck and the master bedroom opens to the main deck.

The trees are oak, hickory, poplar sourwood and white pine which gives a burst or fall colors that sourround the home. The river is shallow in front of the home and is great for “wet” fun or just sitting in the river in a lawn chair to enjoy your favorite cocktail. It is also a great place for children to play and explore. The deer and wild turkey “live” in the yard and eat the landscaping right up to the house. Local birds and squirrels populate the trees.

Riverhouse is the perfect balance of great proximity to Dahlonega attractions and experiencing the sounds and sights of nature! Come on and enjoy the tranquility of the Etowah Riverhouse!

Then, Cavender Creek Winery and Frogtown Cellars for wine tastings. Finally, to Dahlonega Square for shopping and dinner at Corkscrew Cafe.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Riverhouse One was beautiful, even better than the pictures. Our stay over New Years weekend was magnificent. We loved that everyone had their own space to lounge and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the pots, pans and plates we needed. Everything was clean and directions were placed throughout the house for how to use things. We used the fire pit area but didn’t use the jacuzzi because it was way too cold. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will for sure be back to Riverhouse One if we are in the area.

Beautiful home! Makes us want to own one of our own someday!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice! We were there to celebrated our son's wedding at the Juliette Chapel close by, and needed a place to hold All 10 of the groomers for Friday night. Then our family the night of the wedding. It was perfect for everyone. Thank you so much Mr & Mrs Turner for allowing us to stay there. The Batterton Family

Perfect house for family get away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful house and perfect for our three families who met up for Thanksgiving. We had plenty of space especially since it was warm enough to sit outside on the deck and screened porch. Everyone really enjoyed the pool table and the fire pit. The kitchen was well stocked but we did bring a few of our own things since we were doing so much cooking for the holiday. The view and sounds of the river were so nice! Would definitely recommend this house. Also an easy ride from downtown Dahlonega.

Perfect Autumn!

  • 5 of 5

The week we chose to stay in Dahlonega could not have been more perfect. The town, which is not far from the house, is charming; lots of small businesses- shops and restaurants. Street musicians added so much to the atmosphere, and the trees cooperated fully, displaying their best colors. If you have the chance, check out the Irish pub- the Irish Stew was just right for taking the chill away.

The house itself is amazing- spacious, with many gathering spots to enjoy each other’s company. The loft if perfect for teens, children, or adults wanting to shoot pool. The outside has several sitting areas facing the river, both screened in and not. A comfortable fire pit closer to the river is perfect for a chilly night. And although we did not take advantage of it, the hot tub is just steps away.

The house itself is comfortably appointed, Kitchen is well stocked with dishes, silver, glasses, and cooking items. Separate laundry room is a plus.

The fireplace adds to the ambiance of the house. We had intended to go out for dinner each night, but the grill and comfortable surroundings called us to stay in.

Return visit? Yes, yes, YES!!!
