About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Firelight River Cottage is a recently renovated 2 bedroom/1bunkroom cottage located at the convergence of the Chestatee River and Town Creek in historic Dahlonega, Georgia. River rapids, expansive, level lawn, colorful flower gardens, and campfire rings are at your doorstep.

The beautiful, pastoral setting is the perfect place to get away from it all. It is nestled in the heart of North Georgia’s wine country (5 wineries are within a 2-5 mile radius of the cottage).

The property is a fisherman’s dream. It offers many easy, level entry points into the river which is stocked with rainbow, brook, & brown trout. The natural beach is an inviting spot for sunning and swimming.

Three patios provide lovely areas for outdoor cooking and dining.

Golfers may enjoy playing a round at Achasta, a Jack Nicholas signature course.

Trail rides are available through nearby stables. Shops, museums and restaurants are just a 10 minute drive away in charming, historic Dahlonega.
The fully stocked kitchen, HD TV with sports package, and huge wood-burning fireplace make indoor living fun.
