  • Relaxing Escape from the city

    "The cabin was so relaxing and serene along the creek and I could not have asked for better scenery. Jim and Sally were so nice and helpful; I could not ask for better hospitality. It was much needed weekend break away from the city and I only wish I could have stayed longer. Also, my dog loved the trip and it was perfect surroundings for her and Jim and Sally greeted her, too. The cabin was clean, quiet and perfect for a couple and a dog. I hope to visit again in the future. FYI, we discovered a new winery called Chateau Meichtry not too far away and it was excellent! And the little town of Ellijay is too cute!"

  • Fantastic Family Trip

    "We had the pleasure of staying for a week with adult children and 18 month old granddaughter. It was a wet week but we all know Mother Nature has a will of her own. The home is spacious and well decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, cooking utensils. We cooked daily and enjoyed time together in the kitchen and outdoor grilling. The lodge is located in a quiet secluded area and the creek is beautiful with access to fish, float or just enjoy the lovely natural surroundings. The access is a little difficult unless you have a 4 wheel drive truck or all wheel drive car. But definitely worth the trip - we enjoyed it as a central hub for fishing, going on some day trips to Blue Ridge, local apple orchards, Amicalola Falls State Park and Helen. All great days with family fun and laughter. We went to the Annual Apple Festival and had a great time too. Hope to go back again - the North Georgia Mountains and views, the local community and the lodge owners were very helpful and responded quickly if we had questions or concerns."

  • Exceeded Expectations

    "A group of 14 of us stayed here for a 30th birthday celebration and we were so thrilled with everything this property had to offer. The amenities and activities this house has offered really seemed endless. The house was very spacious and well maintained. As has already been said in many other reviews, the owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. The house was also a quick 75 minutes from Atlanta (Buckhead) which made it even better! I would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone and we have already talked about going back!"

  • Clean, modern cabin, 20-30min from town and trails

    "We were here for 3 nights with the dog. The cabin was as expected compared to other rentals. It was clean, properly equipped with all the needed kitchen utensils, towels, paper goods, etc. The heating and cooling systems worked and the windows had screens so some could be opened when it was warm during the day. The directions were easy to follow, although my Garmin had no trouble finding the cabin. Having a fenced in yard downstairs out back was great for letting the pooch out. I always pick-up after my dog so it would have been nice to have an outside trash container. (FYI There also aren't cans on the trails so you'll end up bringing back waste every day.) The trail behind the cabin is nice, short and leads to a creek and picnic table. My dog was extremely excited about the cows that are easily seen from the trail. The furniture is comfortable, clean and not worn or old. Two couples could easily stay here with considerable privacy. There are bathrooms on the main floor and in the basement so no worrying about waking everyone up while wandering around at night."

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!
