Riverbend Cottage

From $229.00 Per Night

View: Riverside Location: Blue Ridge
1 Bedrooms 1.5 Baths Sleeps 4 Yes
When you think of the perfect Blue Ridge mountain cabin rental, does it have a beautiful wooded mountain setting on a river? Is it private, romantic, and tailor-made for an intimate getaway for two? Riverbend Cottage is that place, a cozy hideaway where you and your loved one can relax, reconnect and rekindle in a picturesque, nature-filled Fightingtown Creek setting. Property also features a separate artist studio right on the water.               

Located in McCaysville less than 11 miles from downtown Blue Ridge but worlds away from the commotion of daily life, this two-level gem of a home is a professionally decorated to maximize the spectacular view of the river, just steps away from your door. 

The cottage has just one bedroom but it's a showstopper: spacious as a luxury hotel suite, the carpeted master suite has king-size bed, a sitting area, electric fireplace, flat screen TV, private bath with granite counter, custom tile, shower and jetted tub, and floor to ceiling widows that overlook the upper deck and the river. The sound of rushing water will lull you to sleep, and you'll wake to the sounds of nature that surrounds you.

Downstairs on the main level, you'll find a spacious kitchen with painted wood cabinetry, granite counters, a crockpot, a coffeemaker, in-fridge icemaker and a dining table seating for four. The comfortable couch that hides a queen bed that sleeps two, and there's a half bath on that level, as well as a washer/dryer in a closet. 

Slide open the door to the deck and more treats await you. You can fire up the gas grill for a barbecue and dine outdoors, take in the fresh night air by the fire pit at the water's edge, or relax in the hot tub and witness the splendor of the mountains above you and the rushing river below. 

You might not want to leave even for a moment, but the area has so many activities to offer that it would be a shame to miss them. There's hiking, rafting and horseback riding nearby, and the shops, restaurants and nightlife of downtown Blue Ridge are just minutes away. 

The cabin is Wi-Fi enabled and has a paved driveway. But the best part about Riverbend Cottage is that it's the perfect lover's retreat, an intimate place to celebrate an anniversary, engagement, or honeymoon, though a milestone isn't necessary. It's the kind of place that turns an ordinary weekend into a very special occasion, one you'll remember forever.

We truly enjoyed everything about this cabin and it's location. It was so relaxing and beautiful. We were taken aback with the beauty and the scenery from the bedroom. The fireplace in the bedroom was so romantic and easy to use. We really enjoyed the hot tub and actually got to see snow. We are from the east coast of Florida where it is always warm. We plan to come back in the future. Absolutely enjoyed every minute we were there. Instructions in the cabin about everything was really helpful . Love, love, loved I it!!

The location is gorgeous. The driveway is plenty big and the living room and master bedroom are large and open. The multiple balconies give you so much more living space outside and fully make use of the peaceful surroundings and gorgeous view of the creek and the extra seating on multiple levels outside are definitely a plus. The gas grill was clean and large.

Honestly, this home is perfect for any couple looking to spend quality time with each other away from their own home. Love love love the view of the river and being able to walk down to it. The jetted tub was relaxing. The bed is very comfortable, and the fire place is nice. It is smart & helpful that the owners labeled the lights and left notes to make our stay very easy.

04/19 - Views of the creek from anywhere in the house. You can hear the creek flowing and that’s wonderful at night when you’re going to sleep.This is our 3rd year using Escape to Blue Ridge and we have yet to have a problem with anything. Staff is always helpful and kind and go above and beyond what’s required of them.

- Darell
02/17- The ability to leave the bedroom windows open and hear the river all night was the best part of this cabin. First rental I have ever stayed in that I did not need to clean the grill before using. That was a nice touch. Very pleased with the overall experience.
- Pedro

- Anthony
07/17- Enjoyed the home on the creek. Really good experience
- Carl
06/17- The house was beyond our expectations. We were looking forward to a nice, private place to relax and enjoy some time together and you all provided just that. It was close enough to all of the activities we were interested in, but far enough away to keep us secluded. Fantastic company. You all are great.
- Daniel
08/17- The creek side and rapids setting is extremely hard to beat. The best quality for the rental. Quiet and very serene. Escape to Blue Ridge has been head and shoulders above all the rest that we have used, even though most of the others have done well.
- Fred
04/17- The decks were amazing. Easy access to river.
- Tanya
07/17- It was exactly the same as it was on the web site!! Clean, and everything that we needed was in the house! The view was breathtaking! We already showed this house to all of our friends!!! Very professional, when we asked for a favor, the manager brought it to us within 25 minutes, and we were staying really deep in the woods and it was a hard rain!  Highly recommend!!!!
- Liliia
09/17- Clean cabin, with a beautiful view of the creek. Professional, easy to contact, kept us updated.
- Greg
07/17- My husband and I love that you can hear the river anywhere inside the house. The suite upstairs is beautiful and has a spectacular view. Everyone is very helpful each time we stay here, we will be returning as soon as possible.
- Jennifer
05/17- Probably no better creek side location in north Georgia. Cottage located in a grove of about twenty hemlocks with rare proximity to big water in a lovely southern Appalachian hemlock/rosebay rhododendron ravine. Staff very nice and helpful the two times we spoke with someone.
- John and Barbara
08/17- The stream behind the cabin was so cozy and relaxing. The cabin was very nice and in a secluded area which was very nice. Very friendly.
- Julie
07/17- We loved the entire layout of the cottage (spacious bedroom and living area, beautiful upper and lower decks, and great amenities). Of course, we also loved the creek behind the cottage and the ability to walk all the way down to the creek and either sit or take a dip. We enjoyed ourselves immensely! Excellent customer service and very streamlined check-in and check-out processes. It shows that you all take pride in the service you provide and I'm sure that you haven't seen the last of us. Thanks!
- Kira
03/17- This cottage is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! I would highly recommend it for a romantic or R&R get away!! Nice private location, far off the beaten path. Beautiful scenic views from all levels of the cabin, direct access to a peaceful, flowing river out back, and three deck levels of choice seating. The bedroom is super cozy with the perfect decor and arrangement for relaxation. Enjoyed the remote controlled fireplace and jacuzzi bathtub including a rain shower head! Three double patio doors wrap around the entire far wall of the bedroom, which let in plenty of light and open the room up to the gorgeous view outdoors. We slept with the doors cracked open each night to enjoy the sound of the river as we slept. The king sized bed was SO comfortable. Hot tubÌ¢åÛå_A+++, kitchenÌ¢åÛå_perfectly functional and equipped with all the basics! Overall the cabin was immaculate!!! We will definitely be back SOON! This is truly our home away from home now. Thank you!!! :) Highly satisfied with the level of organization and professionalism.

05/17- What we loved most about this home was the privacy with the beautiful views. There were plenty of places to take in the beautiful scenery. We could walk outside of our bedroom, step out the living room or walk down to river. We felt as if we were the only people for miles! So nice and relaxing.
- Michelle
06/17- The stay at Riverbend Cottage was an anniversary surprise for my husband...even though I knew where we were going, we were both thrilled when we pulled up to the house and saw the rushing waters not far away. Riverbend Cottage is extremely well decorated and very comfortable! We are planning to return again! Escape to Blue Ridge was recommended to me by a North GA realtor. The whole process was extremely easy and professionally handled. I am most pleased I used EBR to find our cozy little cottage on Fightingtown Creek! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
- Nancy
3/18 - The bedroom in this home was perfection. We so enjoyed the fireplace and how easy it was to operate. Also, as tall people, the huge bathtub was stellar. We will definitely be back! Escape to Blue Ridge was AMAZING. We were on the way home from a terrible Airbnb rental the day after our wedding. We were forced to cancel and were planning to go home for a night and decide what to do. Our EBR agent was able to set us up with a cabin and we just rerouted there for the same length of time we were originally planning for the honeymoon. They took care of everything while we were in the car, and were patient as we went in and out of cell service.

09/18 - I love the fact that it's right beside the river. I have two little girls and they loved playing in it and in the hot tub. I love Escape to Blue Ridge and I will be using them soon for another vacation.
