Description from owner

Welcome to River's Bend, our tri-level home in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains! We fell in love with this area several years ago and have decided to share our home with other families looking for a quality family escape. There is plenty of room for the whole family with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, along with a loft and bunkroom/den for the kids. The kitchen is fully stocked for everything you need to cook a full meal or if you prefer, there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Looking for things to do? This cabin has it all for creating wonderful family memories! Outside you can tube, swim or fish in the river, roast marshmallows around the fire pit, or challenge each other to friendly game of horseshoes. The game room in the daylight basement offers hours of fun with pool table, ping-pong table, and Foosball. It also has a separate den with cable tv, dvd player, , and kid-friendly VHS library. For a less strenuous experience, curl up by fireplace, soak in the hot tub, or rock your cares away on the back porch listening to the sounds of the river. As part of the Coosawattee River Resort, you also have access to community swimming pools and tennis courts. So come to River's Bend for a truly relaxing vacation. We bet you'll love it as much as we do!

It was very hard to find and I got lost coming out and back in but the rest was awesome. The cabin had just the feel we wanted. Cozy & warm and a breath taking view. Listening to the sound to the water and it rained our secon night which was awesome. I love thunder storms that are not threatening. I have it saved and plan on trying to book there again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind review. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at River's Bend! The cabin is tucked away but that just adds to the awesome scenery. We suggest keeping the detailed directions provided in the car.:). We look forward to your return visit.

“Awesome getaway!”

Our family had a great time. The setting was perfect with the mountains and river. Very secluded and private. We would definitely do it again! Psalm 73:26.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review! We love to hear that other families enjoy the tranquility of River's Bend.

“Our Best Christmas EVER!”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2014

I wish I had recorded everyone's comments when arrived at this place. I was in tears (relieved from the long drive from Houston, Texas perhaps). My family of 10 spent the week of Christmas there and it was fantastic. My daughter said it was the best Christmas she ever had and she has had 39 of them to compare so I knew she was impressed. Everything we needed or wanted was there and our grandkids never got bored even with the weather cold. They spent a lot of time in the game room, hot tub and outdoors exploring. We made homemade ornaments for our Charlie Brown tree and roasted marshmellows down by the beautiful river. Everyone had a great time and hopefully we can come there again in the summer to enjoy the fishing and tubing. I highly recommend this place if you want to get back to the natural beauty and simplicity of life and spend quality time with your loved ones in a fantastic home.

Our family really enjoyed our stay at River Bend. I have to say we weren't prepared for the STEEP driveway. Once you get there, the driveway makes you want to stay instead of navigating out. The only negative was the distance from the house to the river. It was just a little further than we expected, but it was nice to sit on the porch and listen to the water. The game room was what sold us in selecting this particular cabin and it was all the website advertised. The cabin was roomy and had all the amenities we were looking for. We decided to tube on the Toccoa instead since it seemed more tranquil for our family. We were totally shocked at all the wildlife and it was amazing to sit on the porch and see walking around.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the nice review of River's Bend. We love to listen to the noisy river too and watch the wildlife. Although building codes would not allow the house to be built any closer to the river, it is an easy drive down to level ground and a SHORT walk to the riverbank. We agree the driveway is intimidating the first time, but easily navigable (even by a Prius)!

This cabin was amazing. We were 13 and it had everything we could have wanted. We cooked and were able to all fit around the table. The game room allowed for a lot of family competition. We had a camp fire and did smores and sang camp songs. We had a craft day and made luminaries that we lit at night and strung on the porch. We hiked up Amicalola Falls and visited Helen. Last year we went on a cruise but this was better and about1/3 the cost. My grandchildren will have lifelong memories from this trip. Some of them saw snow for the first time. Thanks to the owners who shared this amazing cabin with us.

Owner's reply: Thank you Maxine for the nice review. We are so glad you and your family had a great time. It warms our hearts to hear of other families creating wonderful family memories at River's Bend.

“Fantastic Escape”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2012

Our family of 10 stayed here for the Thanksgiving holidays this year. We couldn't have chosen a better place and hope to return in the future. Debbie and John have anticipated every need. We cooked our traditional Thanksgiving meal and had everything we needed to prepare it. Cookware and dishes were more than ample, and all of us sat at the dinner table together. We ate every meal but one at the cabin during our 4 night stay and always had everything we needed. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the game room. We hardly saw the boys in our group the entire weekend! The hot tub was clean and warm and was also well-used during our stay. The firepit was perfect for cold evenings, and again, no need to take firewood because it was already there. So many things we took with us were not needed because the cabin already had those items - multiple throws for the cold evenings, movies for the kids, board games, beach towels for when our crazy boys got out of the freezing cold river. Debbie already had all those things waiting for us. We had a minor issue when we got there, but Debbie was gracious and prompt in dealing with it - a true professional. The only negative to this cabin is the driveway. It is very long, steep, and winding. It wasn't an issue for us, but my mom was a bit nervous each time we had to drive it. They have made accommodation for this by providing very large parking areas, so turning around is super easy - no backing up or down at all. We have used privately owned/managed rental homes for vacationing dozens of times over the past years and owned our own cabin which we rented out, and we've never had a better experience, including our own place. Without hesitation I highly recommend this cabin to your family or group.

Owner's reply: Wow, thanks for such an awesome review! River's Bend is our vacation home and we try to stock it as such. We are glad you and your family had a relaxing Thanksgiving at the cabin. We strive to make all our renters' experience a good one, so we appreciate your patience and understanding with the minor "hiccup". And kudos to your gang for being the first to attempt "polar tubing". Brrr!

“Family Vacation”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2012

My parents, sisters, our kids, and spouses all met up to just enjoy our family. ALL agree that this is the best vacation that we have ever taken. We played in the river most of our stay. The deer visited us daily and our kids enjoyed chasing fireflies, frogs, and a rather large lizard. S'mores at the fire pit and coffee on the porch were also highlights of our trip. There was an area large enough to toss the football around and play horseshoes. The game room provided entertainment each night. There were PLENTY of sleeping options. We all wanted to stay "just one more night".

Owner's reply: We are delighted that your family had such a good time! You hit on some of our favorite things about River's Bend - the deer, the river, s'mores, and coffee on the porch.

“We could live here all year!”

Reviewed 19 May 2011

This was one of the best vacations we have ever had. No pressure. No hustle and bustle. Just tranquil relaxation and it was the location and the cabin that made it all possible. Our kids loved being able to go out the back door and walk straight to the river bank. I enjoyed the "personal" touch that was given to the inside of the cabin. The deer were awesome. We could live here all year!
