  • Heaven's Window is exactly what it is!

    "We stayed here over memorial weekend and it was a wonderful weekend! The cabin was beautifully built. As excited as we were to stay there after seeing the pictures we were even more excited for what we saw in person! The view of the river from the large wrap around porch was amazing. My boyfriend and I, and my sister and her boyfriend spent the evenings grilling out, fishing in the river, playing cards and board games, and relaxing in the hot tub. The first day we were there we planned to go hiking but realized a lot of trails nearby with waterfalls did not allow swimming so we called John for suggestions on what to do. He was very helpful! He suggested that we go get tubes (5-10 dollars at Walmart) and float down the river from a bridge not far away right to the bank of the river in front of the cabin. It was a blast! It was about a mile drive from the house to the bridge and about a two hour float down the river. We only saw two other people fishing on the river the whole ride down and the river flows at an easy pace so it’s really enjoyable and easy to stop along the river when we felt like it. The last day we were there it was just me and my boyfriend, who loves to fish, so we packed a cooler, some towels and our fishing gear and walked to the middle of the river to get some sun and fish on the large rocks that are out there. Right behind the rocks was where we found the best fishing spot. You could see the fish as they went after the lure. There were a lot of them, but they were pretty small so we let them all go. I would highly suggest this cabin for a relaxing yet adventurous getaway! I hope to find another weekend soon to head back up!"

  • 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."

  • wedding weekend made perfect

    "We rented Bench and Bar to house our extended family for our son's wedding weekend at a nearby vineyard. We slept 11 but hosted the bride's maid luncheon and had plenty of room as we spread out through the living space and onto the deck. The four bedrooms with their baths attached to the living space yet separated by doors was great for the larger numbers. It was well equipped and supplied. The view is amazing. We had a wonderful time and made many great memories. Glad the weather was great bc the road in could be challenging; the price of seclusion. We had several questions along the way and the property owner was quick to respond and most helpful. You will not be disappointed if you choose this property."

  • Beautiful, Comfortable Lake Hartwell Home

    "My family of four and parents stayed at this lovely lake house this summer and really enjoyed it. It is larger than it looks, with plenty of room to cook in the kitchen, for dinning in the sun room, and seating in both of the living rooms. The 4 bedrooms and 2 baths were a fine size. The dock is really nice and convenient to nice coves for boating activities and a marina for gas, eating, etc. The owners were very helpful also. You could not ask for a more comfortable home, with an awesome access to Lake Hartwell."

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.
