Amicalola Falls estate description


Check availability by clicking on the 'CALENDAR' button above. Our calendar is kept up to date!

8,500 square foot home on 45 acres, overlooking a beautiful private lake, ringed by the North Georgia mountains. Just take a look at the pictures and you may decide to look no further.

Located 1 hour north of Atlanta. This beautiful home sits in the middle of thousands acres of timber land and National Forests... you will have no neighbors. The 150 ft wrap around deck affords a view that must be seen to be appreciated.

The perfect setting for large groups of friends, family gatherings, wedding parties or corporate getaways. The house is conveniently divided in order to allow privacy amongst our guests. There are two stairways leading to separate upstairs areas. The master suite is on the main floor along with an additional bedroom,the living room and beautiful dinning room. The game room with pool table, dart board, ping pong table foosball, pinball, card and gaming tables, along with the home theater room are on the lower level and exit's onto the pool deck. On the main level five separate exits lead to the wrap around deck which overlooks the pool to the side of the house and the mountains to the rear. From this deck take either of the two stairways to the pool deck or continue down the 127 steps leading to the lake and the floating dock where you will find a canoe, a john boat as well as a peddle boat. If you like to fish you've come to the right place, bass, trout and bream swim in abundance in the 14 acre lake. If you don't feel like heading down to the lake stay up top and enjoy the seven person hot tub, a 20' x 40' swimming pool with stone deck. A dozen lounge chairs and outdoor sound system make relaxing easy. A huge kitchen, surrounded by windows with a large dining table and a large stone fireplace serves as a great gathering place. All this makes it possible to spend time enjoying friends and family while still being able to find your own private space to read, relax, boat, swim,or watch movies and sports on TV.

If you need a sixth bedroom, there is an optional 'mother-in-law' suite on the lower level which can sleep 6-8 and has a kitchen with full bath.

If you want to do a little exploring by car there is plenty to see in the area. The historic town of Dahlonega is 15 minutes away and Ellijay is 25 minutes away. The entrance to Amicalola Falls State Park is less than a 10 minute drive. Hiking trails and horseback riding opportunities abound. The Kangaroo Conservation Center, with the largest concentration of kangaroos outside of Australia is just down the road and the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve, home to tigers, bears, camels, monkeys and more, is located on Old Dahlonega Highway (SR 115) in Dahlonega. The Premium Outlet Malls are 20 minutes away in Dawsonville. And don't forget to ask about the Funky Chicken Art Project, you will not find another 'art gallery' quite like it!

But if you want to just spend time away from it all this is the place, sit on the deck overlooking the lake and watch the sun set behind the mountains, canoe or fish, walk wooded trails or sit by the pool and cook on the grill. You'll never want to leave. Minimum stay may be required (-:
