Our North Georgia Mountains region offers visitors relaxation
and adventure. Just over an hour and a half north of
Atlanta, the area is an oasis away from the hustle-and-bustle of
city life. Many have chosen to retire here as Rand McNally
recognized Clarkesville, GA as # 2 for retirement living.
The natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, much of which is
preserved by mass land holdings of the US government and never
to be developed, is the biggest draw.
Dahlonega, GA was voted by Men's Journal
as one of the Best
Hideaways for its delightful downtown and close-by adventures
with biking, hiking and river rafting.
North Georgia is noted for its hiking trails, lakes, rivers,
mountain views, historic small towns, antique markets, southern
restaurants and primitive art and pottery. The people are
down-to-earth, so no more "keeping up with the Jones".
Enjoy all four seasons, community festivals, muscadine wine,
canned preserves, a close by casino in Cherokee, TN, the nearby
Smoky Mountains National Park and most of all, the true serenity
of the coolness of the mountain air.
Fall is one of the best times to visit the north Georgia
Mountains. The colors of the foliage are magnificent.
The Oktoberfest in Helen, GA is happening , which is a great way
to spend the day hanging out in the beer gardens with a nice
cold beer and a warm pretzel with the sound of the river flowing
With many lakes dotted throughout the region, Summer time offers
visitors a way to cool off and have fun. The rivers
give kayakers a great white-water adventure, as well as
provide a relaxing day for those who just want to just float
down on a tube.
Spring is perfect for hiking trips. The region boast some
of the best trails with stunning views of valleys, flowing
streams and flowering laurel. Watch out for bears though.
Winter in the north Georgia Mountains is all about the sweet,
hickory smell of burning wood in fireplaces. Good food,
great coffee, a fire in the fireplace in a log cabin with a good
book and company makes for memorable times in the mountains.
The area has many log cabin rentals available all year long.
We invite you to enjoy our region above Georgia.
