  • Another fantastic week at the River House on the Hiwassee


    This is our second time staying at the River House on the Hiwassee and I am happy to say that it was just as wonderful as our first visit, if not better because this time we could anticipate being back in this beautiful house. Every need seems to have been accounted for. The house was immaculate upon our arrival, and there is ample space for me, my wife, and our two children, who loved having their own bedrooms for the week. I look forward to having tea on the porch in the morning with a view of the river, watching the wildlife and enjoying the quiet. This is a perfect oasis of calm just minutes from the resources of Murphy. We will definitely be back, and I can't wait!

    House was great! Everything we needed and more. Loved the riverfront property and beautiful countryside. Perfect location for us to spend time at the casino, Helen Ga., Bryson City, Blue Ridge Ga. It was a great fall vacation!

    Perfect getaway home. The home is situated on the river and has a beautiful view. Tranquil mornings and evenings were enjoyed. Convenient to town and easily accessible. Property managers were quick to respond to questions and needs. They have stocked this home for everyone’s needs. This is a must stay if you are looking in the area. We will be back!!

  • Great Place To Unwind


    Great place for a family to enjoy and relax alongside the Hiawassee River. Great location, within a short drive you could be in Blueridge or Helen. Property is in a gated community which gives that extra peace of mind. Will definitely book again.
