We enjoyed the peacefulness. Rained a lot but we made the most of our time between raindrops. Left the cabin once to go in town. The trip was a birthday gift for our son. He said it was everything he wanted it to be, fires, togetherness, walks and he ran everyday.. Listening to the water was amazing. Loved it

Great cabin!

The cabin was in a beautiful setting and our children and dogs loved the long deck and fire pit.

Another fun trip to Ellijay!

We love staying in the cabins because it’s hard to find somewhere you can take 2 Great Danes and they enjoy it as much as we do.

Peaceful, Beautiful Sanctuary

Amazing cabin! Our 2nd time staying & we’ll be back. Quiet, tucked away but close to Ellijay/Dahlonega/Blue RidgeWe love the area so much!

Mini Getaway

We rented the Riverside Retreat cabin because it was a 3 bedroom cabin and looked like the best one to accommodate our group which included a few handicapped people. The drive up to the cabin was an adventure and one that we will talk about for years to come.The cabin, although older, was clean and the beds comfortable. The cable TV and internet worked very well. We did not have a reliable cell signal during our stay. We enjoyed eating on the deck overlooking the river. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This cabin could easily be converted to a full handicap cabin by remodeling the bathroom with a high rise toilet, grab bars and a walk in shower.

Weekend Away

Beautiful area. Very relaxing and was grateful for the information about local things to do and see. We LOVED Amaicolala State Park; highly recommend.

Comfort and Convenience in the Mountains

It was a perfect getaway for our family of 5 and dog. The cabin was clean, well equipped, comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed Cartecay Vineyards and hiking in Amicalola National Park. Our biggest disappointment was that our stay was too brief!

Holiday Retreat

iver Retreat was the perfect Holiday space for our family getaway. The cabin has that perfect Log Cabin Woods getaway feel, and has Great and super comfortable furnishings. The living room couches are leather and perfect for settling in by the wood burning fireplace, where we spent many evenings. The beds are excellent and we all slept in full comfort.The deck that extends towards the river is one of the unique features that makes the cabin the perfect getaway place. The overlook is the perfect place to be either early morning with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee, or to have lunch with the rushing river sounds as your background music. Simply perfect! The lower level fire pit next to the river is great! Sitting by the bonefire was peaceful and a great place for is to talk, relax and make new memories while toasting marshmallows. It was too cold to use the jacuzzi but having it sunken into the deck makes it and easy in and out. Another perfect place to enjoy your guests and relax while looking and hearing the river.Just a short drive from both Downtown Ellijay and Blur Ridge as well as close to many great wineries to enjoy your time away from The cabin.Overall an excellent experience, cozy enough to feel that “cabin” feel and large enough to comfortably have 4-6 people stay. I would highly recommend River Retreat for your next stay.
