About the property

650 sq. ft of charm on the Chestatee River

If your looking for an ADORABLE CABIN,'on the river'....easy access to Atlanta and North Georgia THIS IS IT. The DECK is literally on the River!

The cabin has just been updated with new appliances, furniture and a new HVAC. Most comfortable for 2, sleeps 4. Pet friendly.

Sit down and just enjoy the sound of the river or go down and take time to do a little fishing or just curl up and read a good book!

Free WiFi

The cabin is truly great with a living room and fireplace, a new queen sofa bed and leather lounge chair. The master bedroom has a new queen mattress and all new linens. There is a nice size bathroom with a walk in shower.

We usually have cool nights and pleasant days in the mountains.

There is a television for DVD's with a good selection. No cable but we do have WIFI that is sporadic Most guests are not coming to the mountains to watch television and the cable isn't great in this area! LOT'S of books and magazines.

Location is at the end of a dead end road, only woods directly across from the river and twenty minutes to the outlet mall, if shopping is your thing.

Ten minutes to the delightful town of Dahlonega where you can shop, dine in over 20 restaurants, canoe down the river, hiking trails galore, horseback riding less than two miles. can head to downtown Dahlonega and get your Starbucks fix. Stay for a weekend or come and hang out for a week! These locations are hard to find and you will love this beautiful 'hideaway'.

Mountains! I am also a mom, daughter, Nurse, writer, and an entrepreneur. As did the previous owner, I want my guests to feel right and home and to particularly enjoy a place of peacefulness, serenity and beauty. A place to rest and get away from the hustle and bustle of life and to 'reconnect'!

We are providing a beautiful place with lot's of books, magazines and an atmosphere of relaxation!

Why TIna Rayfield chose Dahlonega

Why the Owner Chose Dahlonega, GA, USA:

This area of Georgia is PERFECT. Only 45-­60 minutes to Atlanta, yet you feel in a different world. "This cabin is a JEWEL" I have been told over and over. Dead­ end road. Private. ON...the river. If you come to visit, you'll get the whole story. It is truly magical and will do it's magic on you!

What makes this cabin unique

Connection to nature. Peace, tranquility, PURE JOY of the art of just 'BEING'.

For a few days or a week you reconnect to yourself, your partner, your kids, your pet's in a very real way. You will be only 15 minutes to the Dahlonega and convenient to hiking, horse riding, wine­tasting and shopping... You can sit on the deck and fish right off it or build a fire in the fire­pit and roast marshmallows or just enjoy sitting on the sofa and reading a book as the sounds of the river surround you! Come and enjoy the healing qualities of nature.

Amazing getaway for my wife and I!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin was awesome. Everything was perfect and the setting was very peaceful. We have stayed at a lot of VRBO and this was one of the most enjoyable. We were glad to have had the opportunity to stay here and would highly recommend it to others.

Perfect Little Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfect for a couple or small family! Me and my fiancé had a great time with the fire lit and relaxing on the big porch! Close to the main town but still far enough where you in the country feel. We absolutely loved it!!!

Perfect for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being right on the river as it made for a beautiful location and also being so close to downtown Dahlonega (less than 20 minutes). Perfect place for a weekend getaway, especially at Christmas time! Added bonus that we could bring our dogs, they loved playing outside on the deck.
