About Sally or Jim Smelcer
We are only 3 miles from Cartecay Vineyards and about 4 miles from Chateau Meichtry Vineyards. They offer tables on a patio overlooking the vineyard with wine tasting . In colder weather both have a lovely building in which to taste wine. There you taste the wines and view the mountains and valley you are nestled within. Nearby you will find the town of Jasper which has the Sharp Mountain Winery with tours and tastings. Blue Ridge is only 20 minutes away with quaint shops and eatteries. There is an antique steam engine train that you can ride to a nearby town and back to Blue Ridge. Carter's Lake and Lake Blue Ridge are nearby and offer boat rentals and jet skis as well as hiking trails. Amacalola Falls State Park is 20 minutes away with the highest falls east of the Mississippi River. You will enjoy hiking its steps you may climb to the top and back down. They have many trails from easy to expert!
Why Sally or Jim Smelcer chose Gilmer County
We bought and modified an old barnboard cabin here on Clear Creek. We have always enjoyed the mountains and finally moved here from Cartersville only an hour away. We enjoy the colder weather in winter and the cooler summers. We love the anticipation of snow and the views and woods that this area provides. Jim then built the 2 cabins we have here at Forest Cabins all by himself. Come and enjoy the nature, swings, hiking and the babbling streams.
What makes this Cabin unique
You are in the woods on a pond and stream but only 10 minutes from Wal Mart. You have 2 wonderful state parks nearby, Amicalola Falls and Fort Mountain. 3 miles away Cartecay Vineyards offers wine tasting and music on a patio built against an old chimney over-looking their vineyards and surrounded by mountains. We are the mountain biking capital of Georgia. Our Apple Festival the last 2 weekends of October draws people from all around. The arts and crafts are always unique and entertaining. You won't walk away empty-handed. Down town Ellijay offers nice antique shops and restaurants in which you may choose to sit outside and view the surrounding town, weather permitting. About 15 miles away is the town of Blue Ridge which has a steam engine train ride that takes you on a ride to Copper Hill TN. You will pass along the river in outdoor traincars or may choose to sit inside. Blue Ridge also has many shops and restaurants for tourists. Nearby Jasper has Sharp Mountain Winery which has wine tastings.
