About the property

Riverside cottage in beautiful, private and safe area. Centrally located.

GREAT DEAL!!! This is a brand new listing with an introductory price offer that will be good for a limited time. We will honor all PAID bookings at this introductory price. The listed price reflects a $60 savings per night.

This is our family's vacation home and we love it! It is furnished with every item that we could think of that a family might need while on a holiday.

Rocky River has 36 feet of sliding glass doors all facing the Chattahoochee. It is located right on a beautiful, calm and private part of the river. There is a bridge across a steam that continues on to the "Hooch"where you can stand and fish. It is a bridge and deck; we call it the breck.

The wrap around deck is covered on the river side, so you can sit at one of the bistro tables and enjoy watching kayakers glide by, geese and ducks rest on river rocks or simply enjoy the calming and tranquil effects of the river. The deck is accessed through sliding glass doors from the den and the river view from the den is stunning. Rocky River also has a lovely stream with a singing water fall that deer and beaver frequent. The house is uniquely designed with 2 main level bedrooms with a full bath and a huge loft bedroom with its own full bath. The view of the river from the loft is beautiful.

The game room has 2 large sliding glass doors that overlook the picnic area and river. It has a bar, high top tables with stools and a kitchenette. Just outside is a park style charcoal grill and picnic table. A few steps down to the river is a fire pit and comfortable Adirondack chairs.

The fishing is excellent: bass, brim, catfish, and the occasional trout. If you enjoy kayaking and tubing, this is a perfect location to paddle or float about. Also, Wildwood Outfitters is 5 miles up river, so you can enjoy trekking down the river and exiting right on the property.

There are many amenities: 2 flat screen TVs -one 50 inch, Wi-Fi, land line telephone, game room, washer/dryer, dishwasher and a ramp for grandmother.

Rocky River is centrally located. Helen, Clarkesville, Cleveland, and Dahlonega are a short drive away. The area is rich with attractions like wineries, hiking trails, water falls, fine dining, fishing, kayaking, tubing, antiquing, flea markets, Cabbage Patch Dolls, gold and gemstone panning, zip lining, horseback riding, train rides, go-carts, etc. There is always something to do.

Should a renter wish to exceed the 6 person capacity, there is an additional charge of 25.00 per night per additional person. We have 2 single blow up mattresses with sheets, pillows and blankets upon request. Even with this, there is an 8 person maximum and only with permission from the owner.

Sorry, no pets.

Presently firewood is provided for your convenience;however, we ask for a reasonable donation based on the amount you use. If no donation is left but firewood is used, we may deduct a reasonable amount from your deposit. Firewood is expensive up here, too!

(We do not recommend this property for families with infants and toddlers as there is a loft and a daylight basement. Too many stairs for the little ones.)

We loved it! Fantastic house in an awesome location. You can tell the owners put a lot of thought into the amenities. Plenty of everything! Easy to get to and close to wineries, tubing, etc. we brought our own kayaks and put in right at the house. Didn't really need to leave the property for water activities. Brought our Enos and enjoyed the peace and quiet, loved the fire pit, and the seclusion of the property. Of all the cabins we've rented - this has been The BEST! We are already planning a return trip in the Fall! Thank you for such a wonderful weekend!

Wonderful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults needed to travel to northern Georgia for a family wedding. The host hotel was 25 minutes from the venue and was expensive. We decided to rent this beautiful home instead, and were so grateful we did. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the gentle sounds of rushing water from the nearby river. Making our way to the wraparound deck, we were delighted with the beautiful view. The house itself was comfortable and well equipped for 6 adults. Thank you for sharing! We'd love to stay again!

Excellent property for a peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at your cabin! It was so peaceful and relaxing. The kids enjoyed the game room and being able to explore the outdoors around the cabin. We had everything we needed and more. We hope to visit again another time and maybe be able to build a fire using the fire pit. The rain kept us from being able to use it this time. Everything was extremely clean and orderly. Thank you for your hospitality!

Beautiful & Relaxing Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy and quiet! Our family only had a few days to enjoy, but will not forget the cool mornings drinking hot chocolate by the river...lots of hiking, waterfalls and shopping close by. We will definitely be back for fishing! We were lucky enough to meet the owners and enjoyed talking with them...they made our stay easy and fun. Thanks again!
