White Water Rafting

You can raft with one of the commercial rafting companies (you have to be 13 – the rafting is intense so not for everyone), but even if you don’t raft, you can go and watch the rafts come down.  There are also miles of trails around there (see the website, and the visitors center is also helpful about the trails).

They have a great visitor center that was built for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, as it was the sight for the rafting that Olympics.

  1. If you want to just watch (and this is the #1 spot we visit almost every time we are here!)Whitewater center is a must.
  2. If you want to RIDE – here are the 2 outfitters we typically use!
  3. For a less intense water experience you can float the Hiawassee – my 10-year-old loves this, so it’s low key.  Ir takes about  2.5 hours.The commercial outfitter that services Hiawassee –

Great restaurant for lunch across the bridge from Webb brothers.



Toccoa River Outfitters Fly Shop

FOOD Nearby:


From blue ridge, you can do the blue ridge scenic railway.  They stop in copperhill/mccaysville so we recommend doing the one leg rather than riding it back, but that requires someone to drop you off at the train in blue ridge and then pick you up in maccaysville (mccaysville is the Georgia side of the town, and the river in Georgia is called the Toccoa; the Tennessee side of the town is Copperhill, and the river is called the Ocoee – there’s a great photo op for the state line diagonally across the street from the IGA).


Blue Ridge, GA – ALOT of fun things going on there and only 15 min drive!

Alot of conversation on the local FaceBook page:

Blueridge Chamber webpage:

I’d recommend Merciers – you can pick whatever is in season if you’d like (check website), but even if you don’t do the picking, it’s a local institution and worth a stop in to check our all the food and shopping (not groceries, more jams/bakery (they do amazing friend pies) and seasonal fruit) They have a cafe, but I have never eaten there.  It’s ten minutes from the cabin, on the main road between the cabin and Blue Ridge (the same road Walmart is on).

Harvest on Main is about 15-20 minutes from the cabin.  I’ve been and it is quite good.  I’d recommend reservations.  The area around it, downtown Blue Ridge, has great shopping and local artists, etc.  Chester’s, also in downtown Blue Ridge, is also very good (

There is a Walmart in the road between the cabin and Blue Ridge that is a good stop for groceries (it is on the corner when you turn off the main road towards copper hill/ the cabin, about 10-15 minutes from the cabin).  5 minutes from the cabin is an IGA grocery store that has essential stuff, although it is small.
