Located directly on the beautiful Toccoa River (the top trout fishing location in North GA) and just five miles north of Blue Ridge, GA, River's Edge is where you will obtain R&R in this spacious 5 bedroom, 3 ½ bath property. From the front porch take in a breath of fresh mountain air and encircle yourself in the peacefulness of nature. On the screened-in large back porch, at the banks of the Toccoa River, sit back and relax, take an afternoon nap on the hammock, or lounge in the large six person hot tub. Relish in the tranquil beauty of the surrounding outdoors or enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fire pit just steps away. The stars are abundant and the moon never brighter! Have a picnic, fish, watch the wildlife, or enjoy the fellowship of each other on the private dock on the river with the beautiful mountain valley views. For water enthusiasts, take advantage of the river where you can go tubing, fishing, kayaking, swimming, and more. Check out our photos, but pictures never do it justice.

About David and Lori Hedges, Owners
My wife and I purchased this property in 1997 and built this custom Southern Living design home in 1999. Our family have been blessed with creating many memories here and we hope that you will have the same experience.

Why David and Lori Hedges, Owners chose Mineral Bluff
River's Edge is a piece of Heaven tucked in the woods along the beautiful 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. Relax and enjoy!
What makes this House unique
Being directly on the Toccoa River is in itself the beauty of this 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'.

Was an amazing time at this home. Everything would could need and more. Being on the river was a huge plus!
2nd time was even better!
We loved staying @ this place. It was a perfect place to enjoy a fun sibling reunion! We will probably be back again! Close to Blue Ridge and great setting beside the river.
You all are always the perfect renters! We welcome you time and time again to River's Edge. Thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Until next time.....
We had a group of 10 people and we never felt crowded or on top of each other. The outdoor areas are some of the best I have ever seen and screened porch is fantastic. Great location for putting in a kayak at Tamen Park and taking and hour & a half kayak ride to the cabin. Cleanest cabin we've ever rented!
Thank you for the kinds words! Thrilled you had a great stay at River's Edge and hope you'll be back real soon.
Ideal property for a large family get together.
This is an ideal property for a large family get together. We had a group of 14 people and never felt crowded even during meals. Large central living area/kitchen was very comfortable and functional. Plenty of things to do in and around the house. The fire pit and deck over the river well used during our brief stay as were the Foosball, air hockey, and pool tables. Very scenic and quite location.
So happy you enjoyed your stay at River's Edge!
Gorgeous! Great place for a family retreat.
We just completed our second visit to this property, and it just gets better. The addition of the room with the pool table was a huge hit. We love this place and will continue to come back each year.
We welcome you and yours back every year. Hopefully each time there will be something new, but most importantly glad you are making memories at River's Edge!
Family Christmas Heaven
We have not spent Christmas together in 20+ years, and our family has grown considerably. We needed a home that would accommodate our families, and this one did that and so much more! The location is lovely! The hot tub was fabulous on those cold nights! The kitchen was huge and the open living/dining/kitchen allowed all of us to be together without being crowded a bit!
The Christmas decorations were great! Thank you!
PS--two recommendations--we lost internet access completely for 2 days--when all of the neighbors showed up around us--once they left, internet strength jumped back up...
And more glassware/drinkware/wine glasses--14 people go through glasses quickly!
So happy that your stay at River's Edge over Christmas with you and your family was an enjoyable experience. We apologize for the lovely TDS internet service in this entire Blue Ridge area - they assure us they are working on upgrading their system - fingers crossed! And we immediately supplied the home with more glassware - thanks for the comment - they get broken at times and needed replenishing. We hope you consider staying with us again in the near future, or next Christmas! The Hedges
