"Our family truly loves making River Spirit our family tradition.  The cabin and scenery are truly outstanding and a piece of heaven way from everyday hectic life.  Our greatest memories are tubing down the river, getting out, walking back on the road alongside the river and tubing all over again!  It is a great time to enjoy each other without interruptions.  We are looking forward to next year's vacation."  Tampa, FL

"It started snowing upon our arrival.  The kids were thrilled."  Monroe, GA

"Slept on the porch...I could get used to this!  We took a walk on the road that follows the river and saw a few other cabins along the way.  By far we love River Spirit the best with its whitewater, the sounds and the incredible trees, rhododendrons and laurels.  Non of the other locations can match this beauty.  We drove to Blue Ridge, shopped at the shops and then we hurried back to our heavenly cabin by the water.  We sat in chairs by the water and then waded knee deep in the cooling waters.  When the sun set, we had a fire by the river.   What bliss!"

"It was even better than we could ever have dreamed! When we saw the cabin on the internet, we wondered if the trout fishing could possibly be as good as the river looked. We have fished in many locations out west and fishing here has been just as great.  The numerous amenities made for a very comfortable and relaxing escape."

"What a beautiful sound to wake up to in the morning...the sounds of the rive and the smell of coffee.  I could get my coffee and sit on one of three decks.  Decisions, decisions, decisions!  I only wish it could last forever.  When I get back to Jacksonville, I'm going to have to install a noisy water fountain on the porch to remind me of the joyful experience at this cabin.  I have been spoiled here.  When I look for a cabin by the creek or river,  the requirement is that we hear the noise of the Whitewater.  The sounds and beauty were perfect. This cabin was named right, River Spirit."  Jacksonville, FL

"What a beautiful time we had in the Georgia Mountains.  The cabin surpassed all our expectations.  The website did not lie.  You always have doubts but the website didn't even begin to describe the incredible beauty and peaceful experience.  We came here to celebrate our first anniversary and had a wonderful time.  We visited Amicalola Falls, Carter's Lake and Lake Blue Ridge.  We are so used to the busy city life so this is a nice change of pace for us."  Tampa, FL

"My family had an awesome time here again for the second year in a row.  Especially for Florida people, the cooling mountains are refreshing.  We saw many deer and wildlife.  The sound of the river flowing is so peaceful.  Love the pool table.  We played all night every night.  We love sitting in the hot tub in the dark.  Staying here, there is always something to do. Hope to be back for year 3."

"Our family vacation at River Spirit has been blissful.  After spending 13 days here, we will have to leave.  We came here to enjoy the outdoors with our 4 children.  The beauty that God placed before us is spectacular.  We ate meals on the deck outside, played in the river, and were soothed to sleep with the noisy whitewater of the river.  Our adventures away from the cabin included horseback riding, whitewater rafting on the Ocoee River, panning for gold in Dahlonega and a day on Lake Nottley on a pontoon boat.  Our girls loved the Cabbage Patch Hospital in Cleveland.  We enjoyed shopping all day in the cute little towns we visited.  On July 4, we went to the Ellijay parade, watched duck races (our duck didn't win) and enjoyed the fireworks.  We took the Blue Ridge train to Copperhill and played putt-putt in the alpine village of Helen.  We ate our lunches on our"Big Rock" on the river at our cabin.  At night we played games in the loft and wrote in our journals.  The cabin is decorated so beautifully and we thoroughly were awed by the beauty inside and out.  We thank you for opening your cabin to others so they may enjoy this slice of heaven.  We have been blessed to be here and our family made memories that will last a lifetime.  May all that come after us have a restful visit and enjoy the magnificent creation gave us to enjoy.  Deut. 10:21"  Orlando, FL

"We all agreed that this fabulous cabin was the perfect spot to come together and play. Mountaintown Creek provided fishing opportunities that our grown children had not experienced. The cabin is just a stone's throw from the water creating an incredible view from the Great Room, kitchen and bedrooms. We enjoyed the wilderness feeling as we fished, tubed, and swam in the clear cool water. We agreed that this cabin was the perfect location to do as you wished but still have fun as a family."

"On this year's fly-fishing and relaxation winter getaway, we believe that we have discovered the very best trout fishing cabin rental in the entire North Georgia Mountains! The trout fishing was incredible even in the coldest days of winter.  We enjoyed sharing stories and visiting around the fireplace.  The cabin was very comfortable, cozy and had everything we needed for relaxing.  While the fishermen enjoyed the incredible trout fishing (they caught 35 trout!), the girls kept warm and relaxed while soaking in the riverfront hot tub.  Bliss!"

"Our visit this winter to the Georgia Mountains was spectacular.  I can't believe how blessed we are to experience such a miracle of nature and beauty.  Everyone needs to experience the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains both in the winter and summer months. This location on the gorgeous whitewater is the ultimate in beauty.  Wow!"  Savannnah, GA

"This is a first class cabin and  truly a fly fisherman’s dream.  Who could ask for anything more?   A beautiful view,  river right outside your door, peace, rest and beauty all around you."

"The stars seem very close up here. We love the Georgia Mountains and this is a dream spot from which to enjoy them. "In this fast paced world it's difficult to believe there are still places like this to get away from it all. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing. It is good for body, mind and soul."

"I am sitting here early in the morning, drinking a cup coffee on the deck, watching the deer, listening to the sound of the river. What honeymooner wouldn't be in heaven? We chose the cabin from hundreds on the internet.  Imagine our delight when we found that the cabin surpassed our expectations."

"Our family spent a week at this incredible log cabin and had the time of our lives.  We have great memories and pictures from the beautiful cabin, the gorgeous river and surrounding Georgia Mountains. The cabin is near everything we wanted to do. We went whitewater rafting, went horseback riding, rode the Blue Ridge train, hiked at Amicalola Falls and visited wineries.  We ran out of time to see and do all we wanted to do. So many things to do and not enough days! We have to come back!"

"Our family enjoyed our visit at River Spirit.  We stayed two weeks and left wishing we could have stayed forever. Our 3sons had the time of their lives fishing and playing in the river several times each day. There was so much to do at the cabin with swimming, fishing,  tubing, hiking, and a fire in the outdoor firepit. The cabin had every thing we needed to make our stay comfortable. The owners took great care to create special touches at the cabin  that made our vacation so special.  We looked forward each morning to drinking our morning coffee while sitting on the deck.We love this perfect log cabin and would be glad to visit again some day soon."  St. Augustine, FL

"What a fantastic vacation week! We had great weather and even better fishing. We were so delighted to hear an owl hoot just after dark and then watch the deer come down to the water."

"We really appreciated the extra special touches to make the cabin seem like a home! This is such a marvelous cabin to escape to the beauty and serenity of surrounding nature. We will always treasure the majestic scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This week was filled with special memories of sightseeing, hiking, whitewater rafting, tubing,  playing cards, fishing, and watching wildlife.  We saw turkeys and deer  on the road., The fireplace and firepit provided additional ambiance to this special vacation week. Our only regret is that we have to leave so soon! Thanks again!"

"Absolutely perfect location and cabin. Very tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly need. Thank goodness we found you while searching the Internet.  The cabin  couldn't be more perfect."

"This cabin is unbelievable! How can a cabin like this exist without everyone knowing about it? The moment we walked in we knew this was definitely a cabin we will be coming to as often as we possibly can."

"Thanks for creating a perfect environment for a relaxing family vacation. Our only regret is now we have to return to the real world. Georgia is so beautiful as we have never seen it with all of God's beauty all around us. What a fantastic week!! Great weather and even better fishing."  Birmingham, AL

"We really appreciated your extra touches to make the cabin seem like a home! This is such a marvelous place to escape to the beauty and serenity of nature. We will always treasure the majestic scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the wildlife and sights surrounding the cabin. This week was filled with special memories of tubing, playing games, fishing while here at the cabin. Watch for the does and fawns, squirrels, wild turkeys, chipmunks, trout, owls around the cabin!  The outdoor firepit gave additional ambiance to this special week. Our only regret is that we have to leave so soon!  Thanks again!"  Memphis, TN

"We spent an amzing week here in January.  The weather was cold, crisp and sunny and we loved walking the trail that follows the river and trout fishing.  Your lovely cabin is trult a wonderful and very comfortable retreat.  We loved sitting by the fireplace and roasting marshmallows.  The setting was absolutely beautiful and we both depart from here feeling rested and rejuvenated.  We will definitely remember our trip and share our experience with others."  

"We were looking for a place to fall in love again and your cabin made it easy.  I hope everyone feels this much in love when they leave your beautiful place."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at River Spirit.  Like so many who came before us, we came to rest, to reconnect, to hear silence again and the peaceful flow of the river.  The cabin and location were everything we had hoped they would be with privacy and seclusion so close to the river leaving us feeling like part of the mountains.  It's hard to believe that a place like this exists just a little more than an hour outside of Atlanta.  We don't want to leave.  You will surely be blessed when you retire to this cabin some day.  We can't wait to return."  Decatur, GA

"Fishing:  use spinner bait, no bobbers.  We caught 6 - 9 inch trout.  Got a massage from Mountain Massage and a special meal prepared by Chef Douglas at our cabin.  Saw many deer and turkeys.  Wow!"

"We love your cabin.  The kids had  wonderful time tubing.  My husband and I couldn't stop thinking of how majestic this place is.  Also, your cabin is well supplied which is a big surprise.  We normally vacation in the NC Mountains but I believe that we have found a new place where we can come and relax."  Pembroke Pines, FL

"This is our third family vacation to River Spirit.  We have made it our home away from home with great summer memories to pass on for years to come.  We enjoy so many things about the cabin.  This cabin is so peaceful and it's wonderful to get away from every day life.  Our family looks forward to our vacation at the cabin.  See you next year."

"We caught 4 gorgeous rainbow trout!  We spent a lot of time tubing down the river and during the evenigns we enjoyed a fire in the firepit while listening to the sounds of the rushing water.  We drank wine and talked of our dreams such as owning a spectacular cabin like River Spirit."  Macon, GA
