The cabin was perfect!!! The first thing we saw was the awesome porch and sitting area, then as we entered the cabin it felt welcoming and like home. Everything was clean and cozy. We were able to bring our 2 fur babies which was a big deal to us. They had treats, sheets, and I nice fenced in area for them. We will definitely be back.
Just a tip. This property is not all the private. If you look at the pictures close you will see a road that is just across from the cabin on the other side of Fightingtown creek. It isn't a crazy busy road but it does limit your privacy, which is not what we expected.
Also, this yard (while fenced) is more of a slope than anything else so dogs have little space to wander.
We enjoyed our stay but these things should be taken into consideration if you plan to stay here
We stayed at Riverhouse Retreat for 10 days and we wish we could have stayed longer! It is an older cabin needing some updated decor, but it is well maintained. It was the perfect size for the 3 of us and our dog (there is a fence so they can’t escape into the woods). We loved waking up in the cozy beds and having coffee on the screened in porch while listening to the creek. There is plenty of outdoor seating options on the porch overlooking the creek below. The bathrooms were clean and the kitchen had almost everything we needed to make meals (besides a dishwasher). They have a full sized washer and dryer upstairs which was useful to wash towels and bug sprayed clothes from the hiking trail nearby (don’t recommend washing whites though). It is a short drive into Cherry Log, Ellijay and Downtown Blue Ridge. We do recommend a 4WD vehicle for the last few turns into the cabin which would be difficult in a car. We spent lots of time by the creek in the outdoor chairs and even walked into the cold creek which was actually quite refreshing. There is a fire pit for s’mores and a BBQ grill outside for local meats you can buy for dinner. The management company was quick and responsive which is unlike other companies we have used before. We look forward to coming back one day. Thank you!
We LOVED our stay at Creekside Serenity, (June 2021) we can’t wait to return!! It’s so relaxing, was a clock watching free weekend. We had a blast watching our dogs run and play in the creek with smiles beaming from their faces. Sliding Rock Cabins are truly dog friendly properties, with all the comforts of home.
It was so hard to leave and return to reality. We can’t wait to plan our next visit.
I’ve stayed in 2 other cabins w/sliding rocks but this one is my favorite. A short drive to Walmart and we went to downtown Blue Ridge multiple times. The king bed n the master bedroom was so comfy. The queen bed n the 2nd bedroom is comfy (not as comfy!). The queen bed has a foam mattress topper - I took it off and stored it in the closet while there for 2 weeks because I found the mattress to be more comfortable without the topper. The fenced area is small but we were glad to use it every morning when the dogs needed a quick potty break. Once it is dark out, even with the outside lights on, it is hard to see beyond arm’s length.
