Overview

About the property

Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Other, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6, Romantic, Hot Tub, Fishing

Our previous guests might remember that my RiverMist Cabin was once listed on the "Rainbow Cabins" website but we have since moved on and are now proud members of the VRBO family, offering the long awaited "online booking and payment system", we find it much more efficient and quicker for our guests to immediately lock-in their reservations -- we even have a new and improved management staff.

We are just 90 minutes from Atlanta is a place of exceptional natural beauty offering peace & quiet plus championship trout fishing but close enough to town & all the other activities. The area of Blue Ridge, GA has enough outdoor activities to keep anyone busy but also offers upscale dining & shopping. Mountains, lakes, streams, rafting, tubing, fishing, shopping, this area has it all & is very accessible from both Atlanta & Chattanooga. Wildlife is abundant such as deer, racoons & birds. The master bedroom/bath is on the main level for easy access whith a brand new king size bed. The loft has 2 queen size beds, bath & futon on the top deck. Easy steps down the the creek for fishing & swimming. Tube down Fightingtown Creek or white water raft the famous Ocoee River or Canoe the Toccoa River, they are both so close. The Ocoee Whitewater Center, sight of the 1996 rafting Olympics is just 25 minutes away. Quiet & peaceful in a small gated community but close to shopping, grocery stores, hospital, etc.

About Kim Wood

We enjoy the quiet here but also the many outdoor activities available in this area. Our favorite activities are fishing, tubing, rafting, exploring & sitting on the deck looking at the sparkling river. Even in the winter, we love sitting on the upper deck chairs or the sofa downstairs, drinking hot Irish Coffee and watching the river flow by on a Saturday morning after a hard week of work in the city. What therapy! I always enjoy driving up here from the south and seeing the first set of BlueRidge Mountains on the skyline, just makes you take that long awaited exhale -- like you're finally at home again. Guess I'm a mountain man after all. Ya'll come on over here and enjoy!

Kim Wood purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Kim Wood chose Epworth

This area has all of the outdoor activities we could ever ask for plus exceptional outdoor beauty, it also makes a very romantic get away. There's nothing that compares to watching a Blue Herring at the bank of Fighting Town creek hunting trout. They get really big up here, wing span of 6'. The stars above on a clear night will AMAZE you, we even keep a telescope up stairs for you to use if you know how. It is very convenient to the town of BlueRidge, McCaysville, Atlanta, Chattanooga & Knoxville. In the heat of summer it is so nice to wade into what we call our natural whirlpool (middle of the creek there is a 4.5' bowl of water) deep enough to sit on the boulders there and keep your head above water. I've almost fallen asleep there it's so relaxing. We had a renter that said that's about all they did when they were there last June. They call places like this 'God's Country', I can understand why. You really connect with nature up here. I couldn't live without our cabin now that my family has experienced it. We want to share it with everybody! I could go on and on -- the scent of the white pinewood when you open the cabin door, the hummingbirds that buzz by in the mornings, the distant howl of a coyote and her pups. Just Awesome. We love to hike the Blueridge mountains, go riding the 4-wheelers, fishing and tubing. I'll trade a beach get-away for this 3 to 1.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin sits on Fightingtown Creek which is about 8-10 miles west of the town of Blueridge. Call us and we'll provide you with the address to do a Google map search.

This cabin is located on a short road off of the main thoroughfare to a small gated community so your privacy is ensured.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The cabin is awesome & clean peaceful. Well stocked with everything we needed. We will be back!

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin located on an awesome trout stream! The cabin decor is perfect and obvious the owners put love and character in this place. Everything we needed was there. Perfect getaway that was made easy starting with all the details layed out by management to everything in place and ready at cabin. Cheers to you all!

Soothing for the soul

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the house very comfortable, but the sights and sounds on this wide part of Fightingtown Creek soothed the soul. This home is one of several in a gated community where the neighbors were very friendly. We were lucky enough to be there for the annual stocking of trout. We didn't fish much, but there are 2-3 feeders to entice the fish to stay around! The color was gorgeous in early Nov and not too cold, and the lot and cabin amenities would provide a great time in warmer weather too.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review Rebecca, Late fall and early winter our great times to come to RiverMist. I agree, the colors are spectacular on the foliage, the river received another 1000+ Trout as our annual contribution of rainbows and browns begins. I guess the only thing that could’ve made it better would’ve been the 8 to 10 inches of snow that arrived shortly after your stay and hopefully next time you visit you’ll bring bring a fishing pole and feel the thrill of reeling in some big fish!

Exactly. What. We. Needed.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing this piece of heaven with others. My family and I were looking for a place to reconnect after my husband's year long deployment to Iraq. Seeking peace after a long year of separation, worry, and chaos. I'm blessed to say after this trip we feel closer and more connected than ever. Thank you.

The tranquility this cabin offers is more than words, you not only connect with loved ones but also with God's greatest works in their truest form. Georgia has opened our hearts to the South! The owners of both neighboring cabins took the time to chat and make recommendations and it was greatly appreciated!! Please thank them for us!

It was a bit hard to find at first but I believe strongly that was our error being from the Midwest and not used to the hills and types of "back roads" that are in the south. (Haha) Many have commented on the condition of the roads we believe they were completely fine. If you've never driven a gravel road before I could maybe see where you get your concern... For us coming from Nebraska, yes we were not used to the hills but never had a concern on the condition of the roads. Like a previous commenter I think my husband enjoyed them also. (Haha)

May you all get the peace and comfort your seeking at this amazing property!!! We can't wait to come back!

Love,

The Pierce Family

P.S.

Give neighbor dog Abby kisses and hugs from us she's a doll!!

Perfect Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect! Beautiful setting and a great layout. Our daughters stayed in the loft with their own bathroom and we enjoyed the comfy bedroom downstairs. We made full use of the well appointed kitchen which was fully stocked with pots, pans and dishes. It was great having the tubes right there, ready to float down the creek. The cabin and the property are so well kept and we look forward to retuning next summer!

Our experience was wonderful!! A little piece of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a relaxing vacation where we could just get away from the hustle and bustle and this cabin was perfect!!! The cabin is very nicely decorated inside and out. The property was absolutely lovely with the creek, fire pit and hot tub. The property is private which is just what we wanted. We enjoyed traveling into Blue Ridge and Elijay for shopping and a couple of restaurants. We also enjoyed exploring some of the wineries in the area. We met a lot of nice people in the area too. We definitely consider staying at this cabin again!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lita! Was great having you and your husband visit. It takes a lot of perfecting the cabin experience at River Mist to achieve the amount of praise you've given for our hard work. Sometimes people don't appreciate a well done cabin and your comments and 5-STAR REVIEW makes it all worth while! Thank You, Thank You Thank You! Love to have you all back again soon!

Perfect riverfront setting for our small family!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two small children (4y and 9m), and I stayed here for three nights, and it was exactly what we had hoped for! The property is absolutely beautiful and, although we didn't tube the river (with so much rain, the water was really high and too fast for us to safely float with two littles), we loved listening to it and attempting to catch some fish. The cabin is well stocked, clean, and has the perfect rustic feel to it. It was the perfect size for our small family, but with it only having one true bedroom, we proably wouldn't be able to stay here if the kids were older or if we had more adults with us (although, the loft space is HUGE and one of the queen beds is tucked back quite nicely). Other reviews have mentioned the road to the cabin being difficult, and although it is a little bumpy and the driveway is a little steep, we didn't find it to be much different than the roads to other cabins we've stayed at. We maneuvered just fine in our front wheel drive SUV :) Overall, the stay was exactly what we had hoped for and we would definitely stay here again!
