Riverfront home w/ hot tub, firepit & 2 decks - ideal for fishing/rafting/hiking
Welcome to your River Retreat, begin and end each day on the shores of the Toccoa River at this four-bedroom Blue Ridge escape, a beautifully updated home with a private hot tub and firepit, two decks and a screened porch that overlook the river, and a wondrous waterfront position close to hiking, rafting, and fishing!
This welcoming home is perfectly secluded among the trees in the Aska Adventure Area of North Georgia, just 10 miles southeast of downtown Blue Ridge. Cast a line in the Toccoa River right outside your door, take family hikes to Fall Branch Falls (four miles west) and the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain (19 miles south), and hop on board your boat at the Lake Blue Ridge Marina (10 miles north) for a sun-splashed day on the water.
Even when you're not tubing, rafting, or fishing, the picture windows in the air-conditioned living space will keep the river at the center of your vacation. Whip up pancakes each morning in the updated kitchen (with stainless steel appliances and a dishwasher), sit down for breakfast at the farm table or out on the screened-in porch, and linger by the gas fireplace as you flip through the sports section. Spend the afternoon hours grilling outside on the river-facing deck or soaking your sore hiking legs in the private hot tub; each evening, you can tell stories around the firepit at the river's edge and retreat indoors for a night in the company of free WiFi, two cable TVs, a DVD player, and a VCR.
Escape to the quiet, wild beauty of the mountains of North Georgia - begin planning your vacation to Blue Ridge today!
*Take it Easy, Nestled Inn, and Knapp Thyme are all together, great for family reunions and group gatherings!

It is the 2nd Summer in a row we picked this home for our stay! The location is beyond fabulous!!!!! It is like no other!!!
The house is directly on the Aska with a great beach, rocks to play on, great place to tube.
Felt like home. Sound of the river and firepit created a memorable experience.
Loving the check-in early and check-out late offer. Will be back again soon.
Great view and fireplace!
Wonderful place for family time. Everything in the house was great except the pots/pans. Time for some new ones!
We spent our anniversary here and it was perfect! Quiet, relaxing, with beautiful scenery to enjoy. It is close enough to town and offers all the comforts of home, plus some! We will definitely be back!
We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Everything is great from the location right by the river to the spacious rooms, to the appliances, to the attention to every single detail.
I will definitely go back and recommend to friends.
Amazing home! Proximity to water was awesome! Also proximity to downtown is perfect! Feels like you are secluded for privacy but still close to everything! Parking was great! We will be back. This is an annual trip for our family!
This house did not disappoint. Being next to the river was a choice I am glad we made. It was to cold to play in the water but we still enjoyed it much. The house was big enough for my family and my mother in-laws family. The hot tub, river, and outdoor fire pit we stayed at the cabin a few days to enjoy and not go out on the town. The indoor fireplace went out and we called and they where their that day to fix it. The customer service was great, they answered any concerns I had.
Wonderful time with great friends !! Thanks for sharing your awesome cabin !!! Hope to come again next year.
Beautiful place, beautiful location. Worked perfectly for us. Host was responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend. We hope to return!
We were very please,the cabin is very comfortable beautiful inside and out,the scenery was outstanding,We will be back for sure.
Everything was nice and clean.only thing I would have liked is a better lock on that back door.not child friendly really.may I suggest a iron and high chair would have been nice.we will be back
Our stay at this cabin was amazing! The house was clean and well-stocked, the hot tub worked perfectly and the location was...well, it was breathtaking. Our entire family enjoyed playing/fishing in the river, boating in Lake Blue Ridge, catching fireflies on the back deck, making s'mores in the fire pit and just enjoying the beautiful scenery of the mountains from the cabin. It was a fantastic experience and we will definitely be back.
We had a great time at this cabin. As two families traveling together we really appreciated the split design and having two kitchen areas. The location on the river was excellent. The only thing I would suggest would be a new hair dryer because the one there did not work, but luckily another person in our party had brought one. Other than that, this was an excellent trip and we will be back!!
Very nice place for four old flyfishing geezers to rest up, share few drinks, a few laughs, and stories of the day. Outside of town, but not too far out. Rooms more than adequate. Needs a few more wine (not champagne) glasses. A curtain or some kind of shade for the sliding glass door upstairs also would be nice. Outside decks are great, as is screened-in porch. Great view of the river. Restaurant down the road (about a mile) is very good. On-line rental process was painless (prompt communication). All-in-all, this is a keeper.
The cabin is fantastic! Great access to the river and the cabin has everything you need. Company is very accommodating and responsive.
THINGS WE LOVED AND APPRECIATED: Location and view on the river with easy access roads all the way to the driveway. Cabin is only 50 ft from rivers edge and great firepit only 25 ft from rivers edge. Great decking with view. Hot tub. Gas fireplace easy to use. Comfortable living areas and nice new kitchen downstairs. Great little general store within walking distance with a cafe IRON BRIDGE ... friendly folks and a great breakfast. NOT SO LOVED: Loud washing machine. Spiral staircase needs non slip treads or grips ... one of the adults fell while wearing socks. Upstairs tub (left side room) is slippery, needs grip strips like downstairs tub. WI-FI is not good. Really hate that the upstairs sliding door has no locking mechanism ... aggravating to have to go down the spiral stairs, instead of the awesome wood stairs and deck upstairs, when leaving and then having to enter and go up the spiral staircase to 'remove the stick' that serves for locking the sliding door. The beautiful screened porch floor was constantly wet even when the weather was dry ... I believe there is no moisture barrier under the concrete so it 'sweats'. Hot tub was not ready when we arrived, only 81 degrees. Ran out of gas for fireplace and took a day to get the tank refilled. Garbage was not picked up in a 10 day period. We called on the 8th day. The upstairs kitchen is bare. We never found any instructions for the hot tub, or tv's ... we were able to figure them out after several tries. In a nutshell it seems the advance prep was not good at all. Huge gas tank but obviously was almost empty when we arrived ... no one checking and prepping the hot tub. GOTTA SAY WE TRULY ENJOYED OUR STAY inspite of the negatives ...
Everything needed was there.
the cabin is in the perfect location directly on the river, the staff was very friendly with all questions needed answering. the cabin was very clean and neat. the beds are very comfortable. we will be visiting again next year. had a wonderful time.
I have enjoyed dealing with Sundance Cabins! We look forward to future stays!
You guys were very kind and helpful for our last minute getaway. Much appreciated.
Overall the cabin was exactly as advertised. A great rate for the amount of people it slept. An easy to deal with company that was always a phone call away.
