Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom/ 3 Bath Upscale Mountain River House

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. The Master Bedroom suite located upstairs with its own bathroom and outside private porch area which offer wonderful river views. 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. For an additional fee: We also have a guest suite as our 4th bedroom above the garage that has a separate entrance sleeps 4!

Bord d'eau is located in a small subdivision of upscale homes mostly comprised of vacation or second homes. The entry road to the cabin is private so there is never much outside traffic coming into the area. With access to the property being on paved roads all the way to the cabin's road, there should be no worries about driving on challenging mountain roads. Located just five miles north of Blue Ridge, GA, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Bord d'eau River House is where you will experience the beautiful serenity of nature yet all the wonderful amenities of home. This property has 150 feet of River frontage, located on the Toccoa river the #1 trout river in Georgia. This home is a beautiful 4 bedrooms and 3 baths when you include the guest suite. You will find all the comforts of home so just pack your bags and come enjoy this wonderful vacation home away from home.

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.

Why Ashley Gebhard Agent, Randy and Florence Smith Owner chose Northwest High Country

This charming river house sits on a beautiful lot without any houses on either side or behind it....this private setting is rare and allows for total relaxation in a most comfortable environment.

With all the amenities you could want, it's the perfect place to get away from it all without giving up any comforts.

What makes this cabin unique

There is a rocky "fish trap" in the river behind the house which provides the soothing sound of gently flowing water that can be enjoyed from the large Deck overhanging the river.

Also the sunsets can be beautiful while looking downriver from the deck. Interacting with the passing boaters and floaters is always fun too.

Beautiful Spot on the Toccoa

  • 5 of 5

Excellent choice for a getaway. Our second stay at this beautiful place. Very nice, well-appointed house in a picturesque, restful setting. Ashley, the agent, is most helpful and cooperative. Highly recommended.

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation home. Several of the reviews had mentioned how attentive the Agent Ashley was and they were so right!!!! She made sure we had everything we needed so that this was truly a vacation. We were in town for my sisters wedding so we had extra family there as well. There was plenty of room for everyone. We loved the big yard and so did the kiddos. The river was too swift for us to get in but we did fish. It was so relaxing just listening to the river on the screened in porch which was also plenty big enough for all of us to have dinner. It is also located only a shirt drive from downtown Blue Ridge. As a mom of three little ones, I really appreciated the opportunity to relax. This house fit our families needs perfectly. We will definitely book again!

The house was very clean and comfortable, and the river setting just beautiful. We really enjoyed the large screen porch, and the kids had fun playing in the large yard. Ashley was very easy to work with. We would definitely book again.

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with our kids and had the best time! We fished, wadded in the river, played football in the yard, took a walk, went to downtown Blue Ridge and had the most relaxing time!!! I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a chill weekend with family and friends! Other family members went just after us and had a great time as well!

Simple a one of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the house and thorougly enjoyed ourselves.

Love the set up and how all the windows frim the master, the kitchen and the dining room look out onto the river.

It is very serene during the week but things pick up in the weekends with the neighbors coming into the houses across the way and down the street.

I wouldnt suggest bringing a toddler as we were uber paranoid about the river but still we loved our stay.

We saw some deer in the evening and tons of wild birds from blue jays to geese and wild chicken.

Unless you have Verizon the wifi will be your only connection to the outside world.

The hot tub is around back so just know when its cold there will be a lil chilly hike around to get to it.

Overall my wife and I loved our time there and look forward to staying again when its a little warmer.
