  • We love this cottage!!

    "We spent a relaxing week here in late August. If you have any stress in your life (and who doesn't?), it will MELT AWAY here!! Everything about this place is wonderful - the beautiful lake/mountain view, the decor in the cottage, the two decks, the hammock, the canoe, proximity to Anchorage Marina for boat rental, swimming in the cool refreshing lake, hummingbirds and butterflies. The cottage is very clean and well equipped and had everything we could have wanted for our vacation. It was even better than it looked on this website. The owners have done a great job setting it up for a stress-free vacation. It's such a peaceful and lovely place, it was hard to leave! We had never been to this part of N. GA before, so we took side trips to Black Rock Mountain State Park, Dillard House, and Tallulah Gorge. All were awesome & within a reasonable drive. Clayton is about 15 minutes away - there are shops and restaurants, and the Clayton Pharmacy has an old-fashioned soda fountain. The BBQ at the Lake Burton Grocery (5 minute away) is very good. But you may not want to leave the cottage once you get there, so stock up on groceries at the large Ingles supermarket in Clayton and the kitchen has everything you need to fix your own meals to enjoy on the deck. We can hardly wait to return here next summer!"

  • Family Vacation

    "My family and I spent 4 days at this beautiful home to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday and we had a wonderful time! The house is comfortable; we loved the hot tub and fire pit, and the little extras such as the grill and the spacious master suite made our vacation complete. Next time, we're going to try kayaking down the river. All of us would highly recommend this special vacation spot!"

  • Weekend Get Away

    "My wife and I had an enjoyable weekend while attending a reunion in the area. The cabin is well apointed and just right for a couple's retreat. The view of the river was a special treat--very relaxing and calming. The owner was very responsive to questions and helpful in providing information. The location felt remote, although Dahlonega was only 20 minutes away, and it is close to many excellent wineries. I definetly would consider returning to the cabin for another weekend stay."

  • Awesome Family Vacation!!

    "We stayed in house #1. It was perfect for our family of 7! Nicely decorated & clean. We especially loved sitting out on the large deck under the beautiful trees. The trees provide enough cool shade to sit out in the afternoon too. My daughters were fascinated at the hundreds of fireflies outside every night. Spectacular view of the lake from every room in the house & the cove is a excellent spot for tubing w/kids. The boat barn w/ lift fit our 24ft boat nicely & we had a blast swimming, fishing & jumping off the top deck! Hank was very nice & helpful w/anything we needed. Only 5 minutes to Publix & Johnny's pizza (very good!) We will definitely be back to spend a week here again!! Most beautiful lake I've ever seen! We explored the entire lake & we felt this house is in the best location too. This was our 1st time coming to Lake Lanier. We live in South Florida & usually vacation in the Keys, but this was well worth the 10 hour drive! I was skeptical at 1st if this place was as nice as the pictures looked online. I have very high standards for vacation rentals on comfort & cleanliness, and I must say this place was a pleasant surprise! Kitchen has all appliances, coffee pot, clothes dryer, (only con was washing machine doesn't work.) Overall, the views & beauty of this place are far better than the pictures can show! Also, very nice furniture, comfortable bedding, nice carpet & nice living room. Honestly, swimming in the lake & lounging outside was so nice that we spent very little time inside. Excellent vacation spot! Highly recommend!!!!"

Northeast Mountains Travel Tips

More than Just Georgia on my Mind

Beginning just 50 miles from Atlanta, sight of the state’s main airport, are the mountains of Northeast Georgia. It is easily accessible from I-75 and I-85. Known by the original Cherokee inhabitants as the "Sah-ka-na-ga" or "Great Blue Hills of God," it is better known today as the Blue Ridge Mountains which are also part of the Appalachian Mountains. A significant area of the mountains, some 750,000 acres, comprises the Chattahoochee National Forest. Vacationers choosing Northeast Georgia cabin rentals come for the spectacular scenery and wonderful year-round climate.

Paradise for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Visitors to Northeast Georgia vacation rentals will find themselves in the heart of the great outdoors. The variety of activities is impressive, with endless trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and much more. For water-lovers, go rafting at the Chattahoochee River National Park or enjoy the thrill of tubing at the Cool River Tubing Co. which also offers waterslides for the children. This area was the sight of the America’s first gold rush and visitors can still enter into the thrill of panning for gold and gemstones while learning more about the life in the 1800s. Children will enjoy the Kangaroo Conservation Center, the largest collection of these delightful animals outside of Australia. A not-to-be-missed day out is found at the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway where the vintage and open-air railcars wind along the Toccoa River up into the sister towns of McCaysville, GA and Copperhill, TN.

Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park commemorates battles from the Civil War and visitors will find the museum, seven-mile self-guided driving tour, monuments, hiking and horseback trails make up a wonderful day out. To round off your experience of the Civil War, visit Lookout Mountain Battlefield and the historic Cravens House.

Visiting the Parks--What Do You Need To Know?

Choosing a Northeast Georgia lodging near the magnificent parks and forests makes for a wonderful vacation. Visitors may wish to consider buying a Park and Historic Site Pass which not only provides great value for your money, it also helps preserve the parks and historic sites for future generations. Make sure you are aware of the safety tips provided at the parks. Dress appropriately. If you are planning a hike, make sure you wear the right shoes! In winter, ensure you have planned for the possibility of a shower. No one ever plans to get lost, so be aware of what to do if this happens. If you are planning to camp overnight, don’t bring firewood into the park, use local wood. If you plan to hunt or fish, please ensure you have a hunting and fishing license. Visitors can buy a license from the Wildlife Resources Division of DNR, at Electronic Georgia Licensing (EGAL) system or by calling 1-800-366-2661.

The Best Part of Your Vacation in Georgia’s Northeast Mountains

Where to stay? That’s the question! With such a large variety of towns, each with its own unique character, you will need to decide which of the wide array of Northeast George lodging choices is best for you. Where do you prefer to stay? In a town with restaurants, shops and nightlife on your doorstep, or somewhere more rural, with peaceful nights of solitude and the beauty of nature surrounding you?

Perhaps Helen GA cabin rentals would suit you, with their recreated Alpine charms or historic Dahlonega rentals? Or one of the rural settings available? The choice is yours. One thing is certain; whichever home you choose to make your own for your vacation, you will leave Georgia’s mountains wishing you had just a few more days.
