  • A place to relax

    "We stayed six nights at the "house in the trees" as it came to be known. Everything was excellent! Good communication from the property owner made for a good stay. The house was conveniently between Dawsonville and Dahlonega and very convenient to Gainesville Marina where we enjoyed a great day on the lake in a pontoon boat. Lake Lanier Canopy Tours provided a great zip line adventure, and Appalachian Outdoors gave us a good river ride down the Chestatee. Shopping was convenient and there were plenty of great places to eat. Be sure to eat at The Smith House in Dahlonega as well as the Yahoola Grill; both were excellent. The beds were comfortable, everything was in good working order, and the grill made some good steaks and burgers. All in all, the perfect vacation spot and the perfect place to stay."

  • Lakeside Family Heaven!

    "Truly a great home with everything you could want for a family gathering. There's a fabulous game room when the sun gets too hot for the kids. And there's a great top deck for the sun worshipers in the daylight as well as a sunset gathering place for a family sing-a-long. The owners were gracious and easy to communicate with."

  • Good times at Lake Rabun!

    "We recently visited my brother who moved to the Rabun Gap area of Georgia! My 82 year old mom, twin 8 year olds and my husband and myself had a very relaxing and fun vacation on Lake Rabun at this lovely home!We rented a pontoon boat and two canoes so the kids could go explore. We loved the screened in porch off the great room of the house. We had never seen so many trees and greenery being from LA! We even went horseback rising and zip lining. Lots of fun and beauty."

  • Best vacation EVER!

    "We loved our week at the little blue house. Relaxing, beautiful and comfortable. We went on some amazing hikes with our teenagers on the gorgeous trails right around the cabin. Enjoyed making smores at the fire outside. The cabin is surrounded by a beautiful forest. Feels magical. Thank you Karin! You are the best hostess EVER!"

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.
