Overview

About the property

Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6, Romantic, Hot Tub, Fishing

Our previous guests might remember that my RiverMist Cabin was once listed on the "Rainbow Cabins" website but we have since moved on and are now proud members of the VRBO family, offering the long awaited "online booking and payment system", we find it much more efficient and quicker for our guests to immediately lock-in their reservations -- we even have a new and improved management staff.

We are just 90 minutes from Atlanta is a place of exceptional natural beauty offering peace & quiet plus championship trout fishing but close enough to town & all the other activities. The area of Blue Ridge, GA has enough outdoor activities to keep anyone busy but also offers upscale dining & shopping. Mountains, lakes, streams, rafting, tubing, fishing, shopping, this area has it all & is very accessible from both Atlanta & Chattanooga. Wildlife is abundant such as deer, racoons & birds. The master bedroom/bath is on the main level for easy access while the loft has a queen bed, bath & futon. Easy steps down the the creek for fishing & swimming. Tube down Fightingtown Creek or white water raft the famous Ocoee River or Canoe the Toccoa River, they are both so close. The Ocoee Whitewater Center, sight of the 1996 rafting Olympics is just 25 minutes away. Quiet & peaceful in a small gated community but close to shopping, grocery stores, hospital, etc.

About Kim Wood

We enjoy the quiet here but also the many outdoor activities available in this area. Our favorite activities are fishing, tubing, rafting, exploring & sitting on the deck looking at the sparkling river. Even in the winter, we love sitting on the upper deck chairs or the sofa downstairs, drinking hot Irish Coffee and watching the river flow by on a Saturday morning after a hard week of work in the city. What therapy! I always enjoy driving up here from the south and seeing the first set of BlueRidge Mountains on the skyline, just makes you take that long awaited exhale -- like you're finally at home again. Guess I'm a mountain man after all. Ya'll come on over here and enjoy!

Kim Wood purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Kim Wood chose Northwest High Country

This area has all of the outdoor activities we could ever ask for plus exceptional outdoor beauty, it also makes a very romantic get away. There's nothing that compares to watching a Blue Herring at the bank of Fighting Town creek hunting trout. They get really big up here, wing span of 6'. The stars above on a clear night will AMAZE you, we even keep a telescope up stairs for you to use if you know how. It is very convenient to the town of BlueRidge, McCaysville, Atlanta, Chattanooga & Knoxville. In the heat of summer it is so nice to wade into what we call our natural whirlpool (middle of the creek there is a 4.5' bowl of water) deep enough to sit on the boulders there and keep your head above water. I've almost fallen asleep there it's so relaxing. We had a renter that said that's about all they did when they were there last June. They call places like this 'God's Country', I can understand why. You really connect with nature up here. I couldn't live without our cabin now that my family has experienced it. We want to share it with everybody! I could go on and on -- the scent of the white pinewood when you open the cabin door, the hummingbirds that buzz by in the mornings, the distant howl of a coyote and her pups. Just Awesome. We love to hike the Blueridge mountains, go riding the 4-wheelers, fishing and kayaking. I'll trade a beach get-away for this 3 to 1.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin sits on Fightingtown Creek which is about 8-10 miles west of the town of Blueridge. Call us and we'll provide you with the address to do a Google map search.

This cabin is located on a short road off of the main thoroughfare to a small gated community so your privacy is ensured.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have visited Fightingtown Creek every year in the spring since 2012. We have stayed at River Mist three times and each time it meets our very high expectations. It is the perfect place to retreat from the world and renew your soul. On good fishing days, it can't be beat with the easy access to the river. I caught several beautiful rainbow trout (used a Muddler Minnow streamer) on my vintage fly rod right in front of the cabin! On rainy days, the covered upper deck with a futon is the perfect place to have morning coffee, read or snuggle up under the blanket for an afternoon nap listening to the river and/or rain, or on clear nights, it is the perfect place for star-gazing. The cabin is perfect for a couple's escape from the world. We will definitely return to River Mist. It is one of our favorite places.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely and came fully equipped. The creek was perfect for fishing and tubing. Fire pit and hot tub were great. Kim was kind and helpful. As other reviewers mentioned, the drive to the cabin is a bit rough, but that may have been my husband's favorite part.

Quiet Cabin in the Woods

  • 3 of 5

The little cabin is nice and cozy. But the drive to it and back out is treacherous...even in a SUV. The back deck was really nice with the swing and rocking chairs making it great for socializing. Hot tub being detached from the cabin isn't real convenient. A suggestion that would be a nice 'cabin warming' gesture is provide a bundle of wood for the fire pit because it is one of the best features on the property.

Owner's Response: Hi Esther, Overall a nice review. Good to have you visit. Although I had to laugh a bit as your "treacherous" comment was quite an exaggeration. Please be easy on the choice of words, that kind of talk scares people and can deter rents for no reason. Anybody concerned just read other's reviews. As I've stated in a previous review reply...It's a short gravel road to the cabin, my wife and I drive our Mercedes C350 there often without a scratch from a pebble, just take it easy on any bumps up the hills and you'll be fine. (I'm from Melbourne Beach, Florida and people from FLA have a tendency to sort of freakout over Georgia's mole hills here, lol) I've also been to the Swiss Alps, those you might call treacherous. As for the HotTub being "detached", it has it's pros and cons. The pros are that you have the ability to move the umbrella from over it and enjoy the sun or better the incredible stars that are out there at night! Also, it's really nice that you can see the river and being 15ft from the cabin you have less of a chance of disturbing your kids sleeping in the cabin. All our hot tub photos are all posted here to see. As the reviewer before you stated..."the photos really represent how it is." As for the wood being supplied, we do supply a small amount for inside the cabin in the winter. As for the firepit wood, we used to supply wood but unfortunately some renters will burn a cord ($70) in a weekend -- a constant bonfire. We wouldn't want to charge more per rental to cover those that burn excessive amounts of firewood. So we stopped. There is a Home Depot and Wallmart just 12min away in Blue Ridge that has wood. It's also stated in our "Welcome Pack" for guest so they can grab some on the way.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the property in mid-April for our 38th anniversary. It is quite charming and the pictures really do represent how it is. There are homes on either side of the property, but it was still very quiet, and we only saw a few people either in the river or walking their dogs. The kitchen was nicely stocked with pans, dishes and glassware as well as plenty of towels in the master bathroom. Loved the decorations throughout. The last part of the drive to the cabin is a little rough as others have mentioned, but we drove our truck so we had no problems.

Sitting on the back porch at sunset, drinking wine, and watching the river flow by. It doesn't get better than this.
