Amicalola Falls villa description

Available for the Christmas Holiday! Minimum 3 night rental...

Located less than an hour from Atlanta, near Amicalola Falls, Sassafras Place was designed and built to be one of the finest vacation rentals in North Georgia

Located at 3000 feet above sea level, on the southernmost extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains within one half mile of the intersection of Gilmer, Pickens and Dawson county, the design, construction and furnishing of both Sassafras Place and Monument Place was inspired by our first vacation rental, Paramount Place.

Perched on the top of Sassafras Mountain, Sassafras Place provides 4300 square feet of finished space, 1800 square feet of covered deck and 800 square feet of covered terrace level patio. Sassafras Place is an absolutely gorgeous, custom, executive home on five acres. From this ridgeline, you can see over 70 miles to the Northeast, looking over the top of Amicalola Falls and into the Chattahoochee National Forest beyond it.

Completed in September of 2007, Sassafras Place is ideal for three to five families, extended families, large reunion gatherings, or a couple that likes a lot of space. Perfect for a small wedding, wedding reception, honeymoon, or all three! With five sleeping areas on the perimeter of three large, common areas on three different levels, Sassafras Place has been designed to accommodate a large group, while still providing privacy to couples and individuals. Literally 600 yards away and around the corner from Monument Place, this home allows us to serve up to 35 overnight guests at once when combined with Monument Place. Use both homes for a corporate outing or a mountain wedding!

Sassafras Place is very secluded and private, yet only five miles from Amicalola Falls State Park, 12 miles from Jasper, and 14 miles from Ellijay. The Ellijay town square has antique shops, art galleries, specialty shops, and a variety of interesting eateries. Ellijay is also the apple capital of the North Georgia Mountains and has an Apple Festival every fall. Our home also convenient for day trips to the the popular mountain communities of Blue Ridge, Helen and Dahlonega,the site of the first North American gold rush and wine vineyards.

Sassafras Place is conveniently close to prime mountain bike trails, hiking trails, trout fishing on the Amicalola River, Burt's Pumpkin Farm, whitewater rafting and canoeing on the Cartecay and Toccoa rivers, Amicalola Falls, and the Appalachian Trail. Sassafras Place is a great mountain getaway with over 7300 square feet under roof on three levels. It has five bedrooms, five and a half baths, with a wraparound deck to take full advantage of the magnificent mountain view. 52 windows, 10 large sliding doors and one set of french doors provide panoramic views from every room.

The great room has 28-foot ceilings in white pine with three stories of windows, a stacked stone fireplace, and a satellite-fed full home theater set up. Watch the football game, the fire, and the mountains from the leather couches. Enjoy the Dolby 5.1 surround sound system powered by a 100-watt per channel Onkyo Digital receiver and DVD player on the large flat screen HDTV, mounted above the woodburning fireplace. All rooms have satellite TV with Combo DVD/VCR. You will find a dining room and a large, well-designed, fully-equipped kitchen and breakfast bar with upgraded appliances, hickory cabinets and six inch hickory plank floors. The Master down has a king-size bed with a garden whirlpool tub and all bathrooms have custom tile floors and showers. Kitchen and vanity countertops are granite. Sliding doors off of the great room open up to unbelievably large, covered deck, with two sets of teak tables and chairs and a very large hot tub designed for eight.
