You can stop shopping around for the right cabin for your vacation! You found it!
You'll think you've died and gone to heaven! This luxury 2.5 Bedroom / 2.5 Bath cabin known as "White Rapids Retreat" is located on a gorgeous, wide stretch of the Chattahoochee River near Helen and is anything but ordinary. Relax, nap, and sleep at night to the sounds of the rushing river rapids just 50 feet behind the cabin and enjoy the panoramic open views of the river while soaking in the hot tub or relaxing on the screened porch.
This unique section of the river directly behind the cabin is your own private water amusement park: enjoy swimming, sunning and relaxing on the natural sandbar in the middle of the river, tubing / kayaking / rafting from behind the cabin, playing on the natural rock waterslides, and walking on the river rock shoals. The fishing is excellent behind the cabin for shoal bass, hybrid striped bass, catfish, and bream.
The kids will love climbing trees and playing on the tire swing on the property. Your stress will melt away as you catnap in the riverside hammock. The screened porch with natural slate tile floor overlooks the river and has satellite TV so Dad won't miss any of the football game. Any gourmet chef would be delighted by the beautiful kitchen, stainless steel grill on the deck, and half drum charcoal grill down by the river.
The picnic table next to the river makes the perfect place for a Sunday afternoon cookout. Your kids will never forget the family nights spent around the riverside campfire telling ghost stories, catching fireflies, and roasting marshmallows. Drink a cherry Coke on the front porch swing and you'll feel like your back in Mayberry.
Nature lovers should keep an eye out for the wild deer and Canadian geese in the backyard while sipping your morning coffee. This property is very private and secluded, the opposite side of the river is part of a state park. Enjoy nature walks through the wooded property or on the private gravel road through the woods.
Play games and watch movies by a cozy stacked stone fireplace. The interior of the cabin is beautifully decorated with rustic log furniture and Southern country antique motif. Whatever your age or interests, there is something for everyone at this extraordinary river cabin retreat.

Love, love, love this place!!! The view is spectacular...being right on the rapids is just amazing...loved hearing the rapids running! You truly feel like you are in another world, far removed from the stress of everyday life! The cabin is great...very clean, furnished very well..everything you need. Kids loved the bunk beds in the loft! The screened in porch with TV is great and the hot tub is fantastic...just sit in that and look at the view surrounding you...amazing! We so enjoyed sitting by the fire pit at night...kids did smores and told ghost stories :)..and then the adults sat around the fire and talked. It was just a perfect place that I would most definitely go back to! And I have to admit, I'm pretty picky and am spoiled by staying in some very nice places. My standards are pretty high and this overall experience did not disappoint. I spent a lot of time searching for a cabin and was so glad I decided on this one.
The owner is so easy to work with and so nice...I just have no complaints, other than we didn't have enough time there, as we rented the cabin and then drove to athens during the day on Saturday for the football game. Didn't get enough time at the cabin:)).
Book your stay here...you will not be disappointed!!

Our jaws dropped when we drove down the driveway. Immediately the view was perfect and the cabin looked warm and inviting. Hearing the peaceful river in the background melts all stress away. The cabin has everything and more than you would expect. The view from the hot tub at sunset is incredible!! It's close to everything and the Limehouse family has made sure you feel welcome. They really have thought of everything. I love how "kid friendly" it is but was a perfect romantic getaway for our anniversary weekend. We can't wait for our next trip back when it's warm and we can enjoy the river!!

This river cabin and view are amazing!! You will not be disappointed. Our family enjoyed a long weekend fishing, roasting marshmallows around the firepit and relaxing in the riverside hammock! We will definitely be back. And we left some luggage and Rob the owner was super accommodating to get it returned to us. Thanks so much for a great vacation!

We had a wonderful time at your cabin on the water. It was everything and more than we expected. The property was clean easy to get to and had all the household goodies we needed. The best part was the view and easy access to the water which was amazing especially with kids! Sitting on the back porch and listening to the water in the background was wonderful and great to have a few drinks and play cards. The kids and dog played in the water all day during the days it was perfect. The cabin is located close to Helen and all the activities it was super convenient. We loved the privacy as well. We will return!!!

The house was very clean and it had all the amenities that you could ask for being in the middle of the woods. The house felt very warm and as soon as you walked in the stress just melted away. You could not ask for a better location. I have stayed in many places, but never a house so close to the water. The rapids in the background where hypnotic, especially when sleeping. There are also a lot of places to see that are within a 20 minute drive in any direction from the cabin. There are several wine vineyards close by too. We liked everything about the cabin and the area. Its great to have the choice to BBQ right next to the river or on the wooden deck right next to the hot tub. It was also very special to us because I proposed to my wife at the cabin.

This cabin is beautiful. An easy drive from atlanta, and completely secluded. It is right on the river, so the kids were able to play in the water all day and have bonfires at night. The kitchen is full sized, and there is plenty of sleeping space for even two families to share if you wanted. We were only a family of 4, and there was almost too much room.
Checking in and out was simple with the key code entry, and even though we arrived late in the evening, when we called the owner he answered right away. We needed to make sure we weren't lost (we weren't - we just needed to trust the directions) and he also let us know how to turn on the jacuzzi when we arrived so that it would be heated when we were ready to use it.
We definitely look forward to the next time we get to stay here.
