Cozy Riverfront Cabin w/ a Private Hot Tub, Free WiFi, and Furnished Deck

Escape to this single-level, riverfront cabin where you can fish for trout or dine by the water's edge out on your private dock. Inside this charming vacation rental, you'll find a well-equipped, full kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar, an adjacent table and chairs for six, and an open and comfortably-furnished living area with a wall-mounted, flatscreen TV and a gas fireplace. Step out onto your expansive, covered deck and slip into your private hot tub, fire up the gas grill, or dine al fresco to the sights and magical sounds of the river flowing past down below.

What's nearby:
While there are many opportunities for fun on the adjacent river, when the surrounding mountains, forests, and lakes are calling your name, head just three miles east to Unicoi State Park and Unicoi Lake where you can fish, swim, picnic, or race through the treetops on a zipline. Race down the Chattahoochee River in a tube or a raft, sample wines from several local wineries, and check out the quaint, alpine-themed town of Helen where you can pick up your essentials from Betty's Country Store.

My daughter's and I went for a long weekend and it's the perfect spot! It's quiet, beautiful, clean, wonderful view of the river. Perfect mountain cabin!!
Tina S. Nov 2021
We loved the seclusion of the back porch facing the river! The house was just far enough away from the town traffic and noise. It was a perfect setting to start our new lives together! Best one yet.

We loved this river front house ... it is decorated with a mountainy feel with up scale rustic fruniture and decorations. Looking at the river is not only beautiful but also so relaxing to listen too. Having the large covered porch with grilling area and hot tub make entertaining so much fun!! Can’t wait to go back.

Rented this for my parents to stay in while visiting for their Granddaughters wedding. They loved it. It was beautiful, clean and in a great location.

Convenient location. Amazing river view and deck. Brought our own zero recline chairs. Hot tub was great. It rained our entire stay, so wish the fireplace would have worked. Would stay here again.

Our family came to the area for a private getaway and we were very pleased with the house and especially the access directly off the back deck to the river. Also the covered deck with a hot tub was a wonderful place to sit even the day that it rained. We enjoyed waking up in the morning and taking our coffee out and sitting. The only reason for not giving it a five star is a little noisy since it sits right beside the road.

Awesome location. My family enjoyed being right on the river. The outside deck was very spacious. Short drive to the state park to go fishing, see the waterfall and take advantage of the other amenities. The only issue we had was the appliances. The microwave door handle was broken and the stove door wouldn’t close all the way which made It difficult to prepare food. I would recommend getting bigger pots for cooking and steaming food. Overall I would definitely stay here again.
Manager response:
Hi, Gabriel! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your time at River House. The microwave handle and oven door have been repaired. The property manager will be suggesting larger pans with the homeowner. Thank you!

The stay was really nice. The house was very well stocked with everything a family needs in a home away. The location was very quiet and private with a view of the Chattahoochee off of you private deck. We have intentions of returning to this property in the future.
