About David and Lori Hedges Owners, Ashley Gebhard, Agent

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.

David and Lori Hedges Owners, Ashley Gebhard, Agent purchased this house in 1999

Why David and Lori Hedges Owners, Ashley Gebhard, Agent 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. Many memories of friends and family have been created, with more to come. 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'.

Could Not Ask For More

  • 5 of 5

We brought 17 men from our church, True Gospel Christian Church, to this event (3 of them even brought tents to sleep outside near the beautiful sound of the flowing river). This was a Wonderful atmosphere, location, home, and all amenities were just what we needed. It allowed us time to all gather together in one place, inside or outside. True ministry and bonding between the men was very evident. It was the perfect environment for us to address the needs, concerns, issues men face, as well as the call to greater Manhood. God used this facility to be the place to help facilitate this great work. The men who participated are already asking for this to be a yearly event. Thank you to the owners and the easy to work with property manager Ashley. Pastor Waltower

The perfect gathering place for our family

  • 5 of 5

The home is very well equipped, inviting, and spacious! We had a large gathering of family, and there was plenty of room for everyone. We especially loved the big screened porch. It rained all of one day during our stay, and because of the porch, no one went stir-crazy! We had fly-fishermen in our group who LOVED the convenience of the river being in the back yard. They caught some pretty good trout! We love the area, and spent time exploring, hiking, zip-lining, white- water rafting, and shopping. There is so much to do, and this home is the perfect base of operation.

Fantastic stay at a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had three families together at this wonderful house last weekend in Blue Ridge. Being on the Toccoa river was fabulous and a group of us rented kayaks and cruised by the house while on the water! The house was great, the yard was perfect for the kids to play ball in, and we loved hanging around the firepit late into the night. It was a great time and we are looking forward to coming back.

Great Cabin for Reunion on the River!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year renting a cabin in the Blue Ridge area with our 2 daughters & their families (11 of us) & this cabin is the BEST! Plenty of room & nicely decorated. Love the screen porch & right on the river. Believe this cabin is our favorite. No regrets or complaints. We all had s great time.

This is a lovely property! We truly enjoyed every minute!

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen is a dream for entertaining large groups! Two large refrigerators, awesome! The view overlooking the river, awesome! All the space for a large group, also awesome!

A bit more wood for fire pit would have been good. The mattresses could use an update. Overall.... FABULOUS!!! We would return here in a heartbeat!! Highly recommend!
