This house was absolutely beautiful! The river and the way nature surrounded us was just amazing. We will definitely be booking again! My only issues were the floor wasn’t really clean, as there was long, curly red hair everywhere. Other than that it was perfect!

The location of the cabin near the river

This beautiful home was perfect for our weekend getaway! The home is well appointed and super cozy. We loved being right on the river and the location is very secluded. We will definitely reserve this lovely home again!

We loved this location. I’m glad I read the reviews and brought my own water for drinking and coffee. The water does have a strong sulfur smell. I can tell they are still improving the property as well. The basement has a tv, couches and half bath that isn’t shown in the pictures. It would be nice if they cleared out some trees and brush that blocks the view of the river. Luckily since it’s fall we could see better than it would have been in the summer. I loved that we were next to an empty lot for the power lines and we couldn’t see neighbors. It gave us some room to explore and fish. Over all the house is great and the couple of things I would recommend are very minor. A new coffee maker is needed, we had to take the lid off the pot while it brewed to keep it from making a mess plus it takes the cone filters rather than regular. Water pressure is doable but too low to use all the fancy shower heads in the main level bathroom. I also would like to be able to hear the river from the bedrooms and the downstairs bedroom had a note on the door to not open the doors because it’s hard to lock them back and the upstairs bedroom had a note to not open the windows. Over all I loved our stay and would stay again.

Had a great time

The cabin was awesome, very secluded yet only 30-60 minutes from couple large towns. The road to the cabin has several big potholes that need fixed. Would be a much better view of the river if cleared some of the brush out. Still had a wonderful time and plan to come back again.

The location of the home was amazing, very secluded, quiet, and right on the Toccoa. I would suggest AWD since the road to the house is unpaved and has HUGE pot holes. The house itself was clean but needs a few updates. Mattresses were soft, couches and comforters had stains, there were minor maintenance type of things, but it was still a nice home. Since we were outside most of the time this was not a big issue. One major issue was that we had no landline, no cell service (we use T-mobile) or internet connection. The TV/Roku that were on the property also did not work since there was no internet connection. We had to drive 10 miles into town, where we finally had any cell service, just to make a phone call to check in on things back at home with my elderly parents.
Note- we had no way to even call 911 if someone had an emergency.
Vacasa tried to remediate the internet issue by replacing the sim card in the router twice, but the solution unfortunately did not work. They offered us a loss of amenity credit which was a nice gesture (hoping to see it on my statement soon). If you need to rely on internet or any connectivity for that matter, this property may not be right for you.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Cigdem! We are pleased to read that you enjoyed the home and its location. The internet and wifi have been upgraded there should be no more issues connecting to your devices. Also, the roads to the home have been graded and graveled for easier access no more large holes. We look forward to hosting you again!

We liked every thing about the house and the back porch view.
My wife loved the down stairs bathroom. It was laid out perfectly. The weather was nice and the town of Blue Ridge was great. The Southern Charm Restaurant was the best southern cooking we have had, but for my wife's of coarse.
Terri S. Apr 2021
This was the perfect location for my husband and grandsons guys weekend away. They enjoyed the house, the trout right out the back door and the location.
Casey M. Mar 2021
Hubby and I enjoyed our time together at this cabin tucked in the beautiful mountains. The river is so peaceful to look at and listen to while sitting on the back porch drinking coffee or relaxing in the hot tub. Highly recommend!!
Jocelyn G. Jan 2021
We had a wonderful time at Wildwood River Retreat! The house was very clean, decorated well with unique touches and the hot tub was a fun bonus! It was so nice to sit on the porch in the swings watching the beautiful river! It was definitely relaxing and we will book again!
Brian N. Dec 2020
Really peaceful place to enjoy a long weekend on the river. Has everything you need in the kitchen to make for a relaxing enjoyable stay. House has lots of amenities, outdoor hot tub, fireplace and. beautiful master bath with tub and shower with wall jets. Internet is really spotty, but that was a plus for us.
Priscilla S. Nov 2020
We so love the peacefulness and the quietness at this home. We had such a wonderful time!!! We loved the morning time being able to sit on the back porch and drink our coffee in our little swing egg chairs that was my favorite and listening to the water from the river and watching the wildlife from above. We will definitely use Vacasa again in the near future. Thank you for all that you’ve done for me and my husband to make this trip A memorable one!!!
Margot P. Oct 2020
Great quiet spot for our family. We enjoyed hanging on the porch and in the hot tub. Found turtles, saw deer and did a little fishing on the river (didn’t catch anything). Kitchen is appropriately stocked, bedrooms large and comfortable. Waze sent us the wrong way down the street, but I checked the directions from Vacasa and got us turned back around. Would stay there again - thanks!
Jim F. Jul 2020
First off, the photos are really not a true image of this rental. Some of the home has updates, other areas need much work. The downstairs bathroom is truly wonderful, but it is not the master bath. Furniture in many rooms needs to be updated. The kitchen is somewhat updated, and has updated appliances. The back porch is truly relaxing and private. We enjoyed the two person hot tub and it was very clean. You can only access the hot tub area from the lower unfinished basement. We did find the house clean and stocked well with towels, and bath essentials.

Two things that truly need MAJOR attention:
THE TV/ROKU NEVER WORKED NOR WOULD IT LOAD. THERE WAS NOT A BLU RAY REMOTE TO EVEN WATCH A MOVIE FROM HOME. We had seen this mentioned several times from other guest’s stays. Very slow internet too.
The outdoor area front and back is very overgrown and needs attention. It has potential to look really nice. You could not walk around outside, weeds and growth were taking over and Weed growth has blocked the view and access to the river/stream.
Please try to get to the house before dark, it is truly in the woods and the one way dirt road would be very difficult to navigate in the dark.
With a little TLC this could be a 5 star place
Manager response:
Hi Jim! Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. We attempt to be as transparent with our listings as possible and provide accurate and current photos, amenities lists, and descriptions so guests can make an informed choice about making the right decision for their needs! We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future.

Really enjoyed the stay, very beautiful and clean. Right on the water but away from everyone, and few minutes away from Copper hill.
Pam R. Jun 2020
We loved this cabin. Overall it was clean and tidy. After figuring out the tv remotes and how to unlock the back door we settled in quiet well. Although there’s very little river view, the sound was hypnotizing. We got up early this morning just to sit on the porch and listen to it raining. We would love to come back here.
Joveida B. May 2020
I absolutely loved the cabin it was very nice. The front yard near the river definitely needs to be cleared off some more. I had no problems getting there. I definitely recommend.
Terri F. May 2020
Please check out my long review I wrote over on VRBO where I originally booked this home. Private, quite, clean, comfortable beds, beautiful view-----but hard to find if you use GPS, the "yard" in front of the house to the river needs to be cleared, wifi and cell service is minimal (although we were going to escape that stuff), and water pressure in the upstairs bath was barely there! Overall, we would stay again! Off the beaten path for sure!!
Manager response:
Terri, thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Wildwood River Retreat! Since this home is in a rural area, we include written driving instructions in the check-in email because GPS typically does not give proper directions. We have passed along your feedback regarding the needed yardwork and internet speed to the local manager. They will get this addressed as soon as possible. We hope to host you again soon!
