My wife and I purchased this property in 1997 and built this custom Southern Living design home in 1999. Ourselves and our three boys have been blessed with creating many memories here and we hope that you will have the same experience.

Through sheer luck we were able to find this property before any others learned about it. It is a piece of Heaven tucked in the woods along the Toccoa River! We were attracted to the peacefulness that the area brought, being away from the city life, yet close enough to Blue Ridge and all that it has to offer. Our family, and all those that visit our home, feel the stress of everyday life just lift away.
Being directly on the Toccoa River is in itself the beauty of this home. Many memories of friends and family have been created, with more to come, since we built this wonderful dream home. No matter where you are on the property - in the home, hot tub, river, at the fire pit, or on the deck - you all just feel 'together'.
The place is perfect! Ashley is very helpful and on point about the checking in and out. The location of the house is great! We will definitely stay there again! Thank you for hosting us.
Beautiful house and grounds! Plenty of room for our family-6 adults and 5 children. Hope to return in warmer weather to enjoy the river! We did enjoy the fire pit and the hot tub! Totally recommend this rental! Well stocked kitchen and plenty of towels, but bring your own soap and shampoo!
This property is great! Right near the river with a perfect view, large fire pit, and deck right near the back porch. We loved the hot tub too, it was right on the back deck so it was easy to access and very clean. The house is great for a large number of people with the large kitchen table, large island, and large sofa. I'd recommend this space for anyone looking to gather with friends or family. The pet friendly policy is great too, it's always nice to bring the fur babies on weekend trips.
We brought food and cooked all weekend, and had plenty of space to cook, and layout food for 14. Downtown is a quick drive to some cool breweries, and was a fun adventure for our weekend of relaxation.
We had a wonderful time with our 3 children, their spouses and our 5 grandchildren. We do a trip every year the week after Christmas, this is our 15th year! I do believe this is the BEST house we have rented. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas, the kitchen was Perfect, even had double ovens, the family area/dining area/kitchen were all open and together, but there were also many places to get away and read or be quiet. The screened in porch facing the river was a favorite, especially with the ladies. We all enjoyed the fire pit, telling stories and listening to music, making memories! We didn't even have to go somewhere else for a scenic backdrop for our annual family picture, just walked out to the dock! I would highly recommend this home - you won't be disappointed!

We took my mother-in-law with her 5 children and their kids for Christmas. The house is beautiful and it was decorated for Christmas (which I really was appreciative of). The family room was one of the most spacious rooms in the house. It was the first time we could all spend time in the same room. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. When you finish the other bedroom and it is a true 5 bedroom, it will be awesome. With 5 families it really needed another bedroom. Thank you again.
Had a birthday celebration with friends at the house. The kitchen/family room area is very spacious and comfortable. The agent was so easy to work with. Very well maintained house. The backyard view is magnificent. The sound of water and a fire in the firepit-pure heaven! Great amenities-hot tub, fire pit, laundry room, double ovens.
