Photos and Description of the Mineral Bluff vacation cottage rental

200' River frontage with dock and private wooded 3 acres on the Toccoa River.

Merry Rose Cottage, on the banks of the Toccoa River, is accessible by a gravel country road, and surrounded by lush vegetation and the sounds of nature. This simple country cottage, with its lovely decor and relaxed atmosphere, has a whimsical feel; even the smallest details have been attended to. There is a picnic area and a dock overlooking the River with a romantic seating area that would be perfect for an intimate dinner for two. Guests will feel as though they have simply borrowed the weekend country house of an old friend instead of renting just another mountain vacation home. Whether you decide to spend time relaxing in the hot tub located in the area off the master bedroom, or snuggled up on the sofa beside the wood burning fireplace, you are sure to find your perfect spot in this charming cottage on the River. The Cottage has two private master bedrooms with their own bathroom and river view. The King Master suite has a totally renovated master bath and everything is NEW! In the bedroom there is a king bed w/skylights and it opens on to large deck with a recessed hot tub. Kitchen is nicely stocked with dishwasher and microwave, and there is a gas grill on the deck for outdoor grilling. Amenities include WiFi, Dish Network (over 150 channels to choose from) with 32' TV with DVR in the living room, and 26' flat screen television also with DVR in 2nd master bedroom. If you appreciate a good book there is your choice of great books for riverside reading! Nearby attractions include hiking the beautiful trails of North Georgia, biking, antique shopping, white water rafting, horseback riding, scenic railroad in Blue Ridge and the famous Swan Drive-In.

Of course we include fine linens and large fluffy towels and robes. An initial supply of guest soaps, toilet paper, dishwasher detergent, paper towels and trash bags will also be provided. For colder seasons firewood is provided for Merry Rose.

The cottage is located on the banks of The Toccoa River, which, for you fishermen, the trout fishing is the greatest! Lots of beautiful Rainbows and Browns have been caught right there in our backyard!

And, for you paddlers, we have whitewater for everyone! Class II to Class IV Rivers all abound! Of course the Toccoa is gentle enough (Class II) for a tranquil paddle or float down to Horseshoe Bend Park or if you want something a tad more challenging you can put in at Curtis Switch a few miles upstream and paddle or tube down to the Cottage and have lunch or dinner before you go into town or just settle down for a lovely evening cooking and enjoying a pleasant relaxing evening together on the River. However, if you are in the mood to go out, we have fantastic new and established restaurants a short 20 minutes away in Blue Ridge. Also, new to Blue Ridge, there is the new Blue Ridge Mountain Food Tours that will give you a taste of some of the best places to eat found in Blue Ridge. If you love eating, exploring & having fun, these culinary tours offer you the flavorful experience you may be looking for! These 3-hour guided walking tours will take you on a tasting adventure, discovering unique restaurants, food shops and eateries while sampling delicious foods and beverages along the way. Each tour will make 5-6 stops to various eateries offering you a wide variety of food and beverage tastings from artful appetizers to decadent desserts, to local craft beer and wine. You will get an insider’s view from a local tour guide who will provide you with fun-facts and tidbits of history about the quaint mountain town of Blue Ridge, Georgia. If this sounds like fun to you you may book your Fabulous Foodie or Brew Tour on their website. If you are interested in the Fabulous Foodie Tour or Brew Tour but it is not on the calendar please contact them and they will try and accommodate you! I have been on these tours and many of my guests have gone and everyone, including myself have had a wonderful time. Also, there is a $20 discount per ticket for guests staying at Merry Rose Cottage.

Very secluded and private. Definitely a relaxing romantic getaway but, if you want more...there's hiking,whitewater rafting (Ocoee & Nantahala Rivers), horseback riding, zip lines, community theater, special name it we have it and not too far away! And when you get back to the Cottage you can just relax and enjoy a great meal and/or go jump in the river or the hot tub....or both!!
