Living Room
Start the day relaxing in the living room of The Water’s Edge, furnished with a charming mountain sofa by the gas fireplace. On a cool mountain evening, curl up on the sofa with a cup of hot cocoa as you chat with family and friends and laugh about the day. Turn on some music to set a fun or romantic mood, flip on the tabletop lamp to read, and just hang out. The kitchen is nearby, so you can easily grab snacks and drinks.

The Water’s Edge boasts a fully equipped kitchen, so you can make meals, pour drinks, brew coffee, and whip up snacks for your group. Bright white appliances keep the space feeling open and fresh, and there is ample counter space for prepping meals. Keep the refrigerator/freezer stocked with ingredients for meals, drinks, and treats. Bake cookies and casseroles in the oven or simmer dinner on the stovetop.

There is a double sink so you can easily wash up, and you’ll have extras like a coffeemaker, utensils, dishes and glasses, mugs, cooking tools, and pots and pans. Make decadent meals during the holidays, make easy picnic-style lunches in the afternoons, and cook delicious breakfasts before big days of hiking and outdoor adventures.

Cooking in the cabin is a great way to save money while on vacation or to make your favorite meals. Even if you’re not into cooking, you can stock the space with snacks or use it to reheat leftovers after meals in town.

Dining Table
The 4-person dining table in the kitchen is conveniently situated between the kitchen and living room. Sit down for breakfast before a busy day, set out pizza for a movie night, or gather for a holiday feast. On days when you’re planning a scenic drive through North Georgia, use the kitchen table to pack picnic lunches to take. When meals are over, clear the table and use this for board games, card games, puzzles on rainy days, scrapbooking, crafts, homeschooling, catching up on work, or reading with your coffee in the morning.

Would definitely recommend

The place was very clean and peaceful. It rained all weekend so we couldn’t enjoy the fire pit and the river as much as we wanted to but we liked it there and would definitely recommend.

We would highly recommend this cabin!

September 2023

We stayed for a week at the cabin and had a great time. The views were great! It was close enough to town just in case you need something small. We loved how the owner of the cabin provided corn to throw out for the wildlife. We saw a lot of deer on our vacation! The drive was very nice but if you don’t have a AWD or 4WD vehicle it may be tough to get up the driveway it’s very steep! Our only other concern was with us staying for a week, there were no dressers in any of the rooms so we had to live out of our suitcases. Otherwise everything was great! We would highly recommend this cabin!

Enjoyed the peaceful setting and sound of the river.

Enjoyed the peaceful setting and sound of the river. Encountered some wildlife, including a black bear that was startled by our presence and ran away. This cabin is definitely away from city life, but close enough to stores and restaurants if needed. Very nice place to relax.
