Mountain Paradise is located at the highest point of Kingwood Country Club and Resort. As you make your last turn to the property and begin your climb you will be overwhelmed with awe at the magnificence of how far you can see in every direction when you reach the top. The sheer beauty is indescribable. National forests surround you. Look closely and you may see turkeys in the woods, a fox cross the road, a bunny hop by you. Stop and listen to hear the vast variety of birds chirping. You may feel inclined to stop right there and go no further: to sit on the front porch and rock in the teak rockers just to take it all in your soul! You may feel like you have entered a world all to yourself and your family!
But you must move inside and see what awaits you! You open the front door to see this massive living area surrounded by three levels of windows extending from the floor to vaulted ceiling. You take a few steps further and immediately see to your left the biggest gourmet kitchen you could have ever imagined in a rental property.
That's because it was built with so many extra touches and thoughts put into providing a kitchen for gourmet cooking and elegant entertaining. The L-shaped bar separating the living area from the kitchen creates a focal point for preparing, serving and enjoying your meals with family or friends. The double sink in the center facing the full view windows give new meaning to washing dishes with a smile! There is a garbage disposal with this sink. The dishwasher is available to the left of the sink. Behind this area is another island for prepping food with a second sink and room for cutting veggies and preparing the meal. The large 5 burner gas stove is to the left of this second sink, making it perfectly arranged for organized cooking. The stove has 2 ovens, one for small dishes and a second for large baking items. On each side of the oven is more counter space for prepping and cooking with 3 large drawers on each side filled with great cooking pots, pans and skillets. Behind the second island is more counter space and many cabinets and drawers as well as a large pantry.
The microwave is built in and again with 2 large drawers below for even more cooking utensils. Past the microwave is an alcove with more counter space with coffee pot, Kitchen Aid mixer and toaster.
Off the kitchen is the laundry room.
So much said, yet so much still to cover! As you look past the kitchen, you enter the large living area with comfortable seating in all reclining furniture. Beautiful lighting, decor and hand painted pictures all around. The artist is originally from Birmingham, Alabama, now living in Fort Walton Beach, Florida and has won many prestigious awards for her work. To make the setting even cozier in the winter there is a Buck propane gas stove that looks and feels like a natural wood burning stove.
The dining area completes this area providing seating for four with additional seating for four at the large island. Outside the windows of the eating area you may be entertained by Chickadees, Blue birds, Red birds, and many more species. In addition, in certain times of the year you may see hummingbirds , also.
Moving on, we leave the generous living area to go through french doors to the over sized Master Suite. The king sized bed is literally lost in this room,. The furniture is high quality and elegant with 2 bedside end tables and a chest of drawers. The walk in closet is large and is big enough to be used as a dressing room.
The suite opens onto the back balcony which extends the full width of the house through French Doors, Off the Suite is another over sized area, the master bathroom. It provides a large walk in shower, a garden tub, a marble bench area for towels between the tub and shower and a double sink in a long counter area.
There is a private toilet area in the Master bathroom.
Overlooking the great room is a loft with a daybed, work surface and comfortable desk chair. Also provided is an monitor and printer. The view from the loft is breath taking also.
At the foot of the stairs coming down from the loft is a large half bath.
There is a staircase to the ground floor leading into the family room. This room has a 55" LED TV with Direct TV, stereo and DVD player. A stone, gas fireplace faces the large area for warmth in the cool months. A Foosball table is provided for further entertainment. A movie library is available. There are 2 bedrooms on this level with one large full bath. In addition there is a porch off the lower level for easy access from the driveway.
A final winner is a bench- swing hanging separate from the house for really relaxing and getting away from everything and everybody!
To just stay here is a dream but there are many additional activities that we have enjoyed through the years. Hiking to waterfalls is a must, 2 of which are in the Kingwood property and 120 more within a 50 mile radius. Visiting Tallulah Gorge and hiking down the Gorge and across the swinging bridge is easy and delightful. Seven wineries are close by and so much fun to go taste test and pick your favorites. We have enjoyed Habersham, Twelve Spies, Cane Creek, Tiger, Persimmon Creek, Three Sisters and Sautee Nacoochee.
Zip lining is 12 miles away and a must for those with a little adventure in their bones! White water rafting is available 3 miles away and of course fly fishing is vry popular in this part of North Georgia. And last but not least is excellent golfing at the Kingwood Golf Resort and Spa. Ladies check out the Spa facilities also!
Of all the groups that have stayed in this area and our home, some of the most enthusiastic are those who have come for couples' retreats, ministry retreats, women's retreats, families with children who love the outdoors and of course those golfers that want to get away as a group of men or women for nothing but golfing, watching football in the pubs and just being guys or girls! Mountain Paradise awaits with the call of nature and sights to behold!

The Tallulah Gorge is a gorge that is formed by the Tallulah River cutting through the Tallulah Dome rock formation. The gorge is approximately 2 miles (3 km) long and features rocky cliffs up to 1,000 feet (300 m) high. Through it, a series of falls known as Tallulah Falls drop a total of 150 meters (490 ft) in one mile (1.6 km). Tallulah Falls is actually composed of six separate falls: l'Eau d'Or 46 ft (14 m), Tempesta 76 ft (23 m), Hurricane the tallest at 96 feet (29 m), Oceana 50 ft (15 m), the smooth "sliding rock" at Bridal Veil 17 ft (5.2 m) and Lovers Leap 16 ft (4.9 m). The Tallulah Gorge is located next to the town of Tallulah Falls, Georgia. Tallulah Gorge State Park protects much of the gorge and its waterfalls. The gorge is considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia.
