My husband Carl and I are nature lovers. We spend our winters hiking and our summers canoeing and kayaking. There are so many great places to do both in North Georgia. We are fortunate to own two wonderful North Georgia homes; one in the mountains and one on the river.
We bought our river cabin in 2016 and immediately began a renovation. The original part of the cabin has been given a face lift with new paint, flooring, furniture, and just about everything else! In addition, we added a new den with a wood-burning fireplace and a screened porch off the main bedroom. We have recently completed all our work and are splitting our time between our two homes. We love our time at the river and are delighted to share our wonderful river cabin with other river-loving folks.
People often ask why Carl and I named our place Sparkleberry Shoals. The Sparkleberry bush is native to the southeastern United States and grows all over our 4.2 acres of river property. The bush sports lovely white flowers in the spring followed by dark blue berries and the leaves turn a beautiful crimson in the fall. We named the place Sparkleberry Shoals because we love the plant and we love the sound of the word-- a happy sound for a happy place :)
