About the property

Cottage with WiFi, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area + Couch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Rockhouse cottage is nestled off a dirt road, just 7 minutes away from the Dahlonega Square and 1 hour north of Atlanta. It's conveniently located, but very private. Free WiFi included!

This is a romantic honeymoon cottage or weekend get-a-way! It's also very family friendly.

Enter the Rockhouse Living Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen area. There is a large picture window in the Dining Room to view a family of Deer who occasionally like to visit to eat in the back yard. You can also see a mountain above the many trees.

The bathroom area features a jetted Garden Tub with a large picture window of the serene backside. Separate shower and adorable modern bathroom.

The Master Bedroom and only bedroom has cathedral ceilings, a bay window with a view of the backside. The bed is a KING and is a Stone County Ironworks Bed. The antique doors to the bedroom came out of a Church in London over 60 years ago.

Off the Master Bedroom is a large deck with a Hot Tub. We drain the tub, clean it, and fill it with fresh water from our well, after each reservation. Enjoy the firepit in the fall & winter.

When it rains, you'll enjoy the sound of the rain on the tin roof. If it's windy, you'll enjoy the wind chimes. This home is well insulted so it is very cozy and comfortable all year around. We provide linens, towels, everything you need.

The kitchen is cute and cozy and there have been plenty of gourmet meals prepared here if you like to cook. We also provide nice dishes in case you're in the mood for a candle light dinner. There is a nice large deck off the kitchen with a table for 4 and an umbrella, and a nice gas grill.

If you have children, we provide a bunk bed and a comfortable couch in the Living Room area.

The local Zoo and City Park is only 10 minutes away or visit the square for ice-cream, shopping, and a buggy ride. A nearby waterfall is only 15 minutes with easy access by car. Helen is only 30 minutes away and a beautiful drive! This home is approximately 15-25 minutes to most wineries.

We provide paper product so you can spend your time relaxing in the Hot Tub, the Garden Tub, enjoy hiking, shopping, the Zoo, restaurants, antiquing, tubing, horse back riding, canoeing, kayaking, etc...

Our rates are for a double occupancy. The additional per person rate is $20/night. Children age 16 and under stay free. We do have a 2 night minimum and offer discounts on weekly and monthly rentals. When you come to the Rockhouse Cottage, you'll want to return so make your reservation early.

About Ben Bickerstaff

We have 3 children who love The Rockhouse Cottage in Dahlonega. We enjoy watching our children play in the country. It's so quiet and peaceful. When you stay 2 days, it feels like a week! Dahlonega Square is complete with some of the best restaurants.

Ben Bickerstaff purchased this house in 1986

Why Ben Bickerstaff chose Dahlonega

It takes us only 1 hour to get to Dahlonega from Atlanta. We felt the need to get out of the busy city of Atlanta to enjoy the quiet life in the mountains. It reminds us of who we are. It is used as a 2nd home for many weekends for friends and family. This is a honeymoon cottage, too! The hot tub for two is awesome. Also, the perfect getaway for an anniversary. Many proposals have been made at this cottage.

The rocks on the cabin were placed on the wall by us. The door to the bedroom was a gift from Joe Daole. It came out of an old church in London over 60 years ago.

This cabin will stay in the family forever.

What makes this house unique

The people in Dahlonega are so nice. We love going to the Festivals, The Zoo, Horseback riding. Shopping. Visits to the waterfalls. The views. Swimming at the community pool is a lot of fun! We enjoy the time we have to do so many fun things with our family. Just being together is what it's all about. Our favorite thing to do is sit on the swing or bench and talk.

Quaint cottage for two

  • 4 of 5

Nice for two people who want to get away. Not sure why this is advertised as able to sleep 6; although there is a bunk bed the hot tub only fits two (or two adults with a child). Plus there is only 1 bathroom. Beautiful location and close to town. Hot tub should probably be replaced, but it still works. Owner needs to keep an eye on those drains; all were plugged up with hair. No instructions for the DVD player but the weather was great so we went out. Would definitely recommend for a young couple! 😘
