Bord D'eau, which is French for "Beside the Water" and is pronounced Bordeaux like the wine, is a charming, upscale, beautifully situated cabin located just 50 feet from the edge of the pristine Toccoa River. One of the many unique feature of this cabin is that not only it is located on one of the river bends allowing for viewing down the river from the East and West side it is easily accessible by foot for fly fishing or paddling down the river. This custom built cypress wood sided cabin seats on 1.1 acres of a well maintained, shaded tree lot that is very park like. There's plenty of room for family outdoor activities in the grassy lawn areas. This unique property gives you a feeling of privacy and comfort but not seclusion as it's only 10 minutes to the city of Blue Ridge which has a great supermarket, Ingles along with many unique shops and restaurants. The Bord d'eau River House has a spacious floor plan with an open downstairs kitchen and dining area which connect to the living area with its floor to roof expansive open space. The custom built gourmet style kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and has a gas burning stovetop with a vented hood. There are two bedrooms downstairs which share a bath.

You'll enjoy lounging and eating on the large 300 sf screened porch that looks out over the river. There's also room for additional seating on the open deck on the entry side of the cabin. Outside, guests will find themselves on the expansive dock that hangs over the river's edge while enjoying the cool early evening air with an aperitif of their favorite beverage and snacks. Also, many memories will take place reminiscing around the fire pit late into the evening hours.
During the growing season, you will find blueberries and flowers growing in the garden areas. The water supply for the cabin comes from a deep water artesian well located in the "outhouse" building in the front yard.

The Toccoa River itself is a federally protected waterway which flows north into Tennessee where it becomes the Ocoee River. Only a 30 minute drive north will take you to the River launch site on the Ocoee River for some exhilarating White Water Rafting. The Toccoa River has a healthy population of both Rainbow Trout and German Brown Trout which can be caught although we recommend a catch and release policy in order to maintain a health level of fish in the River ecosystem. There is easy access to the river with the depth being no more than wading level depths at most times.
