  • What a great week!

    "My husband and I spent a week at this fabulous house with some of our daughters for another daughter's wedding. It couldn't have worked out better. It served as the gathering place for out of town family so everyone had a good visit. Had informal nite before wedding dinner and people could come and go as they got into town. Hotel rooms and restaurants could not come close to this. From the fabulous private backyard, kitchen and bedroom layout, everything was wonderful. Monique and JB, the caretakers, were very helpful and Jana and Jim most accommodating. We can't say enough great things about our stay at this clean, beautifully furnished home. Would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it. Even our fur kids agree!"

  • Paradise in the Woods

    "The Honey Pot definitely lived up to expectations. The neighborhood is beautiful and the house is very comfortable. Directions that the owner provided were great, once you get into Soque Wilderness, make sure to ignore the GPS and follow the written directions. Located right on the Soque River, great trout fishing is just steps away from the front door. This was the first extended fly fishing trip for both of my teenage sons and they loved it! Caught lots of fish, rainbow and brown trout. In fact I think my 13 yr old may have the new house record, 20 inch 8 lb brown trout :) The house and the surrounding property is picture perfect. Lots of great screened in porch, decking and spaces to sit outside, relax and enjoy a good book. My 3 yr old niece thoroughly enjoyed the play set and the rocket slide. And there are a ton of board games inside perfect for a rainy day, as well as many children's movies in the upstairs bedroom. The house is well appointed and has everything that you would need including an awesome game room in the basement with ping pong and foos ball. No cell service, but for me that was awesome. Direct TV, Netflix and wifi work great for those of you don't wish to disconnect from the world completely. The sound of the river flowing by is very soothing. In the evening we sat around the fire pit and made smores, life doesn't get much better than that!! We did not really venture out very much, brought our own food and just cooked at home and relaxed. Clarkesville and Helen are close by if you need any supplies or like to do a little shopping. Unicoi Fly Shop in Helen can hook you up with any fly fishing needs you might have. David, the owner, was wonderful to work with, booking was easy and house was clean and in order when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this home to families for a relaxing and memorable getaway. Or for anyone looking to recharge their batteries and get away from it all for a little while. We will definitely be back!"

  • Perfect Rental

    "My parents organized this vacation and it greatly exceeded our expectations. The house was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The views were unbeatable and it was enjoyable to hear the kids across the lake having fun at summer camp. We got a lot of exercise going up and down the steps between the house and the boat house. We spent most of the week at the boat house and the top deck was the perfect place for my 14 month old son to run around and point at the boats passing by the Flying Horse Lodge. Thanks for a great vacation! We definitely want to come back!"

Georgia Travel Tips

Whether discovering live music in Atlanta or romance along cobblestone streets of Savannah, Georgia offers a place for everyone. From renowned museums to strolling through the squares of antebellum architecture. Its moderate climate makes vacationing here perfect year-round. Take a look at the top five cities to see for yourself.

Atlanta

The capital of the Peach State, Atlanta boasts more than just a vibrant music scene and happenin’ nightlife. Recharge and refresh at the World of Coca-Cola for a history of the globe’s most famous soft beverage. The kids will be in awe at the Georgia Aquarium, which is the world’s largest. It holds more than 60 habitats, tens of thousands of animals and more than 10 million gallons of fresh and marine water. Your family will not want to miss the new dolphin gallery for a musical and theatrical performance highlighting both dolphins and humans.The Fox Theatre is an ideal spot for a romantic night out on the town, recently restored to a classy 1920s look meant for Broadway musicals, dance performances and comedy shows. Last but not least, keep the blues alive at Blind Willies, named after the talented Georgia songwriter. This venue calls in both local and national acts. If you brought your drum sticks, you can sit in on a jam session at Cafe 290, exploding with swing that’ll keep you on your foot. Rock ‘n’ rollers, don’t skip out on Star Community Bar, which has celebrity guest bartenders and a variety of different shows.

Augusta

The town of Augusta is rich with heritage. Take a picture with a statue of James Brown, Soul Brother No. 1, who grew up along these streets. Golfers, brace yourself for the Augusta National Golf Course, the world-renowned home of the Master’s Tournament. Applewood Golf Course is perfect for hitting links without the lofty expectation. Make your way to Augusta Canal Food, Fabric and Fire for an in-depth look at Augusta’s major role in supplying Confederate troops during the Civil War. Tours start at 1:30 p.m. and last an hour. Relax as you head across the Augusta Riverwalk that weaves over the Savannah River, which is dotted with beautiful azaleas. For a shot of inspiration, Artists Row features working art studios, galleries where you can purchase one-of-a-kind items and tasty eateries that’ll be sure to hit the spot.

Columbus

Take a stroll down the Riverwalk for a stunning view of the riverside town of Columbus. Sharpen your senses at the National Civil War Naval Museum, where you’ll see full-scale recreation of battle ships and hear stories of Confederate warships and Union fleets. If you’re looking for some adventure, book a trip white-water rafting along the Chattahoochee River, crowned the largest urban white-water rafting course on the planet. The Coca-Cola Space Science Center offers a planetarium where you can gaze at stars and take on simulated Challenger missions. Don’t forget to see a show at the River Center for the Performing Arts for an electric set of acts spanning from Yoyo Ma to Cirque Eloize to comedian Gabriel Iglesias. For a late-night bite to eat, sneak by The Loft for everything from delicious crab cakes to bacon burgers. It’s good for jazz and drinks too.

Savannah

Originally opened as a seaport in the 1700s, Savannah today is still brimming with river cruises, carriage rides and plenty of scrumptious seafood. Its romantic cobblestone streets make the city a must-visit for lovers old and young. Experience the historic squares on foot as you wander along through the city steeped in Colonial heritage. Or, head to Explore Savannah, a private tour, to learn about the behind-the-scenes stories of the alleys and architecture, as the city was the first Colonial capital of Georgia. Bonaventure Cemetery, a bedrock of the city, offers crypts and a sort of haunting beauty which has inspired a score of poets, writers, photographers and filmmakers for years. For travelers coming off the 9 to 5 lifestyle, embrace the slowed-down pace of Savannah culture.

Athens

Athens combines a bustling college campus with sweet Southern comfort. It is home to R.E.M. and the B-52s and has been ranked by Rolling Stone as the “No. 1 College Music Scene in America.” After your fair share of music, set your mind at in ease in the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, a 313-acre preserve with walkways and blooming camellias that will send any nature lover swooning. The antebellum architecture of the city shares tales by itself, but is only made more fascinating when contrasted with the Victorian-era buildings downtown. Swing through the farmers market for a taste of local produce on the weekends. To get your heart rate back up, go to a University of Georgia Bulldogs game in Sanford Stadium - even tailgating here is sure to be a good time.

Visit the state that inspired legendary singer Ray Charles to write “Georgia on my Mind.” As a perfect harmony of urban hot spots and coastal serenity, Georgia offers a vacation that will be sure to stay on your mind too.
