Our story begins with reading a lovely article about the charming town of Blue Ridge. We live on the west coast and our son was living in Florida so we thought the location would be ideal for finding a cabin for family gatherings. I can recall the drive up from Atlanta being so beautiful even in the winter. The moment we saw the cabin we felt drawn to the beautiful tranquil setting and could not resist the magnificent sounds of the meandering river. The cabin was under construction at the time so we were able to make changes to the layout and design of the kitchen. Once completed we found it to be even better than expected but unfortunately did not spend the time with family as originally intended. Each passing year we would say to ourselves we need to spend more time with family but our careers seemed to always take priority. Until one tragic day our lives would be forever changed by a phone call. Our precious son had suddenly passed away. We would give anything to take those years back and regret every day that we put our careers ahead of spending time with family. I can still hear the excitement in our sons voice about planning a spring trip to the cabin that never would come to pass. It has been hard for us to take the journey back and at one point we were going to sell the cabin. Thankfully, the house did not sell and as the years passed the grief slowly was been replaced with cherished memories. What helps us with our healing is when guests take the time to share their own special memories of happiness and joy spent with family at the cabin.

The River Ridge Lodge is a 5 bedroom 3.5 bath 4,500 square foot riverfront cabin located on the upper Toccoa River in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area. The upper end of the river is most desirable as it is a slow meandering river perfect for tubing and trout fishing! This is a genuine log home not a typical Blue Ridge…

I stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with some close friends. We were excited after seeing the pictures and could not wait. The pictures do not do it justice. Place is amazing. Sitting by fire in the gazebo listening to the river rush by or watching a movie in the home theater room..could not have asked for more. Place is clean and has everything you need for a great vacation. I would … See more
