Lake Arrowhead Mountain Home w/2 bdrms / 1.5 bath / 2 living rms / sleeps 6

Our beautiful, peaceful, private mountain home is within a gated community located in the North Georgia Mountains. Located southeast of Bear Mountain, Lake Arrowhead is Georgia's second largest man-made, private lake, covering approximately 540 acres. Lake Arrowhead community has two lakes, Lake Arrowhead and Lake Chickasaw. Additional amenities include: an 18-hole golf course, The Highlands Grill with beautiful views, a marina w/ boat rentals, nature trails, two community swimming pools, tennis courts, a volleyball court, horseshoe pits; additionally, two volunteer fire departments and a chapel.

- Our property is on one of the mountains and only a five-minute drive to the lake and to the golf course.

- Just outside of our private community (a one-hour drive - plus), visit these great attractions:

Amazing Amicalola Falls State Park, the park's name is derived from a Cherokee language word meaning, "tumbling waters". The park is home to Amicalola Falls, a 729-foot waterfall that is the highest in Georgia. It is considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia. An 8-mile trail that winds past Amicalola Falls and leads to Springer Mountain, famous as the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, begins in the park. Amicalola Falls State Park also offers many hiking trails, a guest lodge, restaurant, cabins, a shelter for long-distance Appalachian Trail hikers, a campground, and access to the eco-friendly Len Foote Hike Inn.

North Georgia Wine Country - In recent years, Dahlonega has been recognized as "the heart of the North Georgia Wine Country". The county features multiple vineyards and five licensed wineries that attract many tourists.

The historic Dahlonega Square is also a popular destination, with gift shops, restaurants, art galleries and studios, and wine tasting rooms. The city's local festivals draw many visitors. "Bear on the Square", an annual three-day festival held the third weekend in April, marks the day that a black bear wandered onto the square. It features bluegrass and old-time music. "Gold Rush Days", an annual two-day event the third weekend in October, attracts over 200,000 people. Dahlonega is home to the Holly Theatre.
