The pictures don't do it justice. This cabin is BEAUTIFUL. It is so spacious and it is right on Snowbird creek. The cabin was clean, there is cornhole, darts, and a Sauna!! It's right by santeetlah lake and 5-10 minutes from "town" (shopping, food, etc) it is so quiet and calming. I'm hoping we will stay here every year! The owner is really nice, and the 1 neighbor we met was so kind and welcoming as well. We LOVED our stay at River's Edge. They even had wifi and Netflix. If you stay in the master bedroom you can wake up to beautiful sun shining through the trees. 100% recommend!

On the Rivers Edge

  • 5 of 5

This house is literally on the rivers edge as the name suggest. We came for Spring Break so did not get to hang outside much because it was cold. The river was beautiful with fast moving water and no neighbors on the far side. Very secluded, woodsy view from the back deck. This house is HUGE. Everyone had room to spread out. My boys had the downstairs to themselves with bedroom, darts and fooseball table. The entrance deck was well appointed with bench for taking waders and boots on and off. There were hooks on the posts to hang our waders out to dry too. Fishing in the area is great! By far, my favorite part of the House was the fireplace. You can build huge, wood fires that will keep you busy tending all night. Take a real close look at the stonework on the fireplace. You might find a few surprises. We could tell that this home was built with love. PS, I really want to come back in the summer and tube the river from the house and use the fire pit. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, and glowing review! Rivers Edge was "built with Love" and is still very well loved. The Fireplace, it holds many stories, and the Stones from throughout the Country. We are pleased you noticed that, and that you so enjoyed your stay. Yes, Tubing the River is wonderful! We look forward to your return and will happily apply our "Returning Guest Discount" for your next stay! You were wonderful guests!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin and scenery. We did a whole lot of nothing, which was just what we wanted! Dave did a great job of taking care of our needs. River is beautiful! We will be back when the weather is warmer and the fish are biting. Our rods were freezing this time!

Relaxing Thanksgiving in a Beautiful Cabin on the River

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic week at the River's Edge. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of choices for sleeping with room to spare. It was nice to have 3 full bathrooms, 2 of which had easy access showers (my mother was very grateful). The kitchen is very spacious - there was plenty of room for everyone to pitch in on cooking and cleaning. The counter space was large enough to set up our meals buffet style including our Thanksgiving feast. We look forward to visiting again, hopefully in the spring to see the rhododendrons in bloom.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Rivers Edge and for your 5 star review. We are pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay, and we also look forward to you visiting again. Yes, the Rhododendrons that surround Rivers Edge! The bloom is quite beautiful indeed. No matter the season, the Mountains and the Rivers beauty is quite special. Thank you again. Rgd's Dave

Very welcoming, and relaxing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home in late october for a group dual-sport ride. It is a perfect location to easily reach hundreds of miles of fun roads. The home itself if beautiful and very cozy. There are many bed options and the spa is nice on cool nights. We will stay again for sure!
