Cabin Bluff, Cumberland River Retreat, GA


Founded in 1928 by automobile pioneer Howard Coffin, Cabin Bluff was world-class fishing and hunting destination for wealthy southerners and northeasterners who sought respite from life's daily pressures. Mr. Coffin realized Cabin Bluff could be a perfect combination of simple pleasures, with no loss of luxury or comfort.

Virtually everywhere at Cabin Bluff, our history is present. You'll see a century of moments suspended in time through photographs of legendary industrialists and former presidents, as well as decades-old books and artifacts. Perhaps the most startling sight is a well-preserved 13-foot alligator mounted overhead in the lodge. It was shot by former Cabin Bluff owner, Alfred Jones, Sr., on his honeymoon in 1930.

To this day, Cabin Bluff retains a rough-hewn quality, yet has not relinquished its standing as a destination built upon simple elegance and attention to service and to enjoyment.

Cabin Bluff is one of the only destinations that offer world-class fishing, shooting, and hunting opportunities.
