Watch your troubles float on by from the gazebo at Above the River. This lovely cabin is nestled in the North Georgia Mountains in Suches, Georgia. Above the River is a two bedroom, two bath cabin that sleeps six. It allows its guest to slow down from the fast line of life and simply enjoy living. Walk down the steps onto the banks of the Toccoa River. Soak in the hot tub to view the woods and the river. Cookout on the gas grill, and enjoy lunch in the sunshine. No need for firewood, enjoy the fire without the work with the gas log fireplace in the living room. Each bedroom has deck access, so if an early morning sunrise with a cup of coffee is what’s on your mind, simply step outside. This cabin also has a game room containing a foosball and ping pong table! This cabin has wifi, a washer and dryer, but please bring your own washing powders.

Had to buy glasses at a yard sale so we didn't have to wash them after every use. There were only 4!! Generally the place was nice but hated the road right below it.

Cute cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great overall. The layout & space of the cabin was perfect for us (4 adults + 2 kids) It is also very close to the Swinging bridge, so we were able to go enjoy nature without driving too far. The only thing I wasn’t satisfied with was the cleanliness when we arrived.

Nice Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin itself was nice and cozy. Bed's were very firm, fireplace was nice for the cold evenings. We were expecting to have river access out the back of the cabin as it appeared to be in the pictures, however, it is actually down the road a bit and in order to fish you actually have to stand on a step or go into the water so wading boots are strongly recommended if you want to fish. Needless to say, we did not get to fish as much as we wanted due to this inconvenience.

The description mentions that it is recommended to have an all wheel, 4 wheel, or front wheel drive vehicle, I strongly advise guests to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle. The hill to go up from main road is very steep, when it was not raining it was hard to get up and when it did rain during the day it was almost impossible to get up, luckily we made it. So glad there was no ice involved!! We considered parking in back of cabin on private road.

Our first night there was NO water pressure, was told to wait a while maybe well was shared with another property and would come back. In the morning there still was NO water pressure, made a call to the number and they sent someone out to fix it, it worked fine the rest of the trip.

The cabin really is in a secluded area of Georgia. The nearest town is 20-25 minutes away depending on weather. Strongly suggest to renters that they stop and buy groceries prior to arriving at cabin.

middle of nowhere private cabin

  • 4 of 5

loved the cabin, manager was quick to resolve a fireplace issue. Wasn't really close to anything at all so bring your dinners or food to cook as you won't find a place to eat for 40 minutes or so. kids loved the ping pong table and walking down to the stream. I have a front wheel drive SUV, had a little trouble on the initial turn onto the dirt/gravel road to the cabin as it is a little steep and needed a running start or i would get stuck, same thing for the actual paved driveway, its steep but with a little running start and new found bravery, I made it up and down 2 nights :)

Great property! Beautiful river view!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great - spacious and clean with a gas grill, hot tub, and indoor gas fireplace. There was great hiking nearby and we enjoyed listening to the river from the cabin decks. We were hoping to be close to Dahlonega and the wineries, but the actual location is 1 hour north of Dahlonega (hard to tell since the generic address just says "Suches"). Besides that we were very happy with the rental and would definitely return!

Just because the cabin is just over a 30 minute drive from Downtown Blue Ridge, doesn't mean there are not activities to do around the cabin. Since the cabin sits right on the Toccoa River, guests can fish, tube and play in the water from May to late September. The Toccoa River is a year-round trout stream, so guests can fish at any time of the year, instead of just through the winter months. Also, this cabin is close to the Coopers Creek and Rock Creek management areas. Enjoy great hiking and waterfalls within the Wildlife Management Areas. Also visit the Chattahoochie Fish Hatchery. Visit the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce website to access self guided maps for fishing and hiking in the area, as well as dining and antique shopping maps.
