  • Great Family Getaway

    "The property was exactly what we expected and made for a wonderful Thanksgiving getaway. The home comfortably slept four families. The open floor concept made for great place for everyone to hang out. As for locality of the home, we could easily get to downtown and all the attractions on the mountain. We would definitely come back in the summer just to hang out. There is no doubt; I would recommend this property as a place to stay."

  • Best private option on the list, farther out, but very lovely!

    "Stargazer is a wonderful stargazing property and reflect everything found in the pictures and descriptions. Even better than some of the pictures as a few things have changed. There is a new huge leather sectional and television level and new TV. Both the couches are now in the upstairs bedrooms which adds extra coziness to the property. We met Julie the housekeeper, and found her to be lovely and hard-working and the house very clean and in good order. The owner, Mark was superb and responding to concerns immediately. I would recommend this to anyone looking at these listings, but note a few things. The drive to the center of activities (tennis, work Out Ctr., Lake and beach area pool) is a little far and requires travel in the car for each trip down there. This is an extremely private place where you could spend hours in the Jacuzzi, playing games downstairs, or relaxing and no one is seen for days! However, if you want to try to and from the beach/pool/workout center for tennis and golf, it will be quite a trip for the family. All that said, I'd stay here again and love everything about it. Please note the recreation room is unfinished has shown. Restaurants are okay at the clubhouse, not great at the Mexican restaurant Fuegos, and there are many to choose from in Jasper just 10 to 12 miles away. We chose to stock the kitchen as it is completely ready for good cooking. I hope Mark replaces the grill soon, as it's on it's last legs. Mark is one of the most responsible owners I've dealt with, and We've done a lot with VRBO, Don't hesitate to stay here and bring your beach towels!!!!"

Northwest High Country Travel Tips

North Georgia Mountains Vacation Rentals Set Amongst Captivating Beauty

Georgia is the largest state in the Southeast with an ever increasing population and great industrial development. Georgia is also the leader in the production of paper and board, processed chicken and textile products. Other major manufactured products of the state include food products, apparel, transportation equipment and chemicals of all types. Georgia has always been known for its scenic beauty and ruggedness. The Cherokee Indians that once called this state home referred to it as “The Great Blue Hills of God” (or to them Sah-ka-na’-ga). A large portion of Georgia's northern mountainous region includes over 750,000 acres that make up the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Not only will the beauty of the North Georgia Mountains captivate you but so will the awesome luxury accommodations. Unlike any other lodgings that you have ever experienced, the North Georgia Mountains offer upscale amenities for your stay. The cabins are equipped with complete furnishings, large comfortable beds, fully loaded kitchens, fireplaces, full baths, outdoor barbecues and patio settings, and beautiful architectural detail. They are also fully equipped with all of your indoor recreational needs with high-speed internet hook ups, big screen TVs, DVD players, home theaters, ping pong tables, billiards, foosball and even air hockey. Some rentals also offer hot tubs and saunas for your pleasure. There is no limit to what North Georgia Mountains lodging can offer.

Most of the vacation rentals in the North Georgia Mountains offer spectacular views and access to some of the great places to see here such as Lake Blue Ridge and the Toccoa River, where you can discover great places to fish hike, kayak and go tubing. Since the lake offers some secluded and peaceful settings, it’s a perfect area to relax and enjoy nature's surroundings. North Georgia Mountain cabin rentals deliver all the goods.

Activities Near North Georgia Mountain Lodging

No matter what time of year it is in the North Georgia Mountains, it delivers the goods on a wealth of activities and exciting things to do for the entire family. Ever since the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad was erected in 1886, the area has been a tourist hotspot. This has allowed for the towns in the area—Dahlonega, Gainesville, Toccoa—to also become upscale vacation destinations while maintaining their charm and small-town feel.

Take the family to enjoy several of the great outdoor recreational activities such as horseback riding, golfing, camping, hiking, biking, sightseeing, hunting and fishing. Hiking is a very popular pastime for visitors to the area as there are many trails to explore. Springer Mountain, which is located about 30 miles from Ellijay lodging, is not far from the Amicalola Falls where you will discover some of the most beautiful creations of water and plant life. The Appalachian Trail is a great place to explore as it winds through the Georgia Mountain counties of Lumpkin, Union, White, Habersham and Rabun for nearly 80 miles before it crosses into North Carolina. The Cohutta Wilderness also has several great trails that include the Jacks River Trail, where in the summer you can see literally thousands of beautiful butterflies floating above it.

There are also some great easygoing activities such as shopping for antiques in Blue Ridge, taking tours of the town by car or motorcycle, attending the festivals and mountain fairs, purchasing apples from any of the many apple houses in the area, taking an excursion train from Blue Ridge vacation rentals, or dining in any of the great restaurants in town.

North Georgia Mountains Weather

North Georgia Mountain weather can be just as great as the scenery here. The summers here are warm and mild with comfortable evening temperatures. July and August are usually the warmest months with highs reaching into the high 80s and 90s Fahrenheit. Of course, the temperatures are cooler as you climb into higher elevations. Summer nights are still warm but tend to cool off to more tolerant temperatures as the sun sets. Humidity is also frequent in Georgia, although it’s not as extreme as southern Georgia.

December through February are some of the coldest months for the area, where daytime highs only reach to 50 degrees in the daytime and nighttime lows can travel to below freezing. The snow will usually blanket the mountains about twice a year. However, there are some seasons when there is no snow accumulation at all. Precipitation is usually between 50 and 80 inches per year and the majority of it is winter rainfall.

Getting to the North Georgia Mountains Cabin Rentals

You have a few options when you decide to fly into Georgia. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is one of the busiest and largest in the world, so the logical choice would most likely be to fly into Hartsfield. It is the prime destination for travelers to this state for business and pleasure. From there, you can easily rent a car in order to continue your journey to the North Georgia Mountains.

Once you’ve hit the road from the airport, you can choose several scenic routes to find your way to the mountain range, although the major highway is going to be State Route 19 up the middle of the state and the I-85/985 to the northeast. When those two fork near Suwanee, the 985 takes you up through Gainesville while the 85 takes you up to Carnesville. You can choose to explore various routes and roads along the way too, like the Chattahoochee River Road which is a beautiful and colorful side route to take, and the Tallulah River Road which crosses the mountains and puts you on U.S. 441 just north of the Dillard House. The Cohutta Loop is another option which encircles the southern end of the Cohutta Mountains. Last but not least, you can take scenic 197 which is a highway that offers many great stops along the way as it winds for over 50 miles from its humble beginnings near Cornelia. The route numbers in this region change without warning so a good map and patient attitude are musts!
