Dahlonega is the gateway to the North Georgia mountains, and a playground for hikers, bicyclists and motor bikers.

Dick's Creek, Cooper's Creek, Woody Gap and Lake Winfield Scott and Lake Vogel are nearby for swimming and some of the best trout fishing in the country.

Visit the many waterfalls in the area, and don't miss hiking DeSoto Falls, a friendly hike with two waterfalls.

Enjoy touring the 6 wineries surrounding us for tastings or dining with fantastic mountain views.

Rafting, kayaking and tubing is available on the rivers around Dahlonega, and you might decide to pan for gold or tour the gold mines.

Antique shops and restaurants are plentiful in downtown Dahlonega, as well as art galleries, specialty shops, tasting rooms and the Gold Museum. The first Dress Up and J.R. Crider's was established here, and are a must stop for the younger crowd. If you are having "withdrawal" from the city, there is a Starbuck's about a block off the square. On the first Friday of the month Hancock Park has live music, just behind the square. A "mini Chastain", if you will.

Don't miss Wolf Mountain Vineyard for brunch, lunch or a glass of wine. Make reservations before you come, they fill up fast. Montaluce is a great dinner spot, if you want to get to another winery. Three Sisters, Frogtown and Cavendar Creek are also not to be missed. Frogtown has special dinner and brunch events throughout the year that are wonderful, with more beautiful views.

Some of our favorite dining spots in Dahlonega, on or just off the square, are the Oyster Bar-seafood and good oysters, Shenanigan's, all around menu, just great food and an outdoor deck with music, and it is pet friendly. Bourbon Street is Cajun style, with a porch overlooking the square and another pet friendly back deck. Want a good margarita and Mexican-go to Pueblo's, without a reservation you will probably have to wait. Gold City has good barbecue, done on the Green Egg. Connie's Ice Cream shop wins "Best sandwich in Dahlonega" every year. Gustavo's has great salads and garlic cheese rolls. Of course they have pizza, Stromboli, pasta, etc. Crimson Moon is where you want to go for live entertainment. The entertainers change nightly. The Picnic Cafe serves light breakfast and lunches with some outdoor seating. Corkscrew Cafe is more fine dining, very good, with indoor and outdoor seating.

A couple of miles from the square you will find Yahoola Grill and Johnny B's, (great wings and sports bar atmosphere). For breakfast you might want to try Foothill's Grill, Hickory Prime or Wagon Wheel.

If you have had a full day and want to come back, relax and enjoy the view, stop by Feast for gourmet to go.

Finally, if traveling with friends, ask me....there are other accommodations nearby and on property.

I've tried to give you a quick overview, but you can also go to the web site for the Dahlonega Chamber of Commerce to get additional information as to dates of specific events.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are so excited about Dahlonega and our home and love to share. As part of our retirement we left Alpharetta to look for a slower pace. Little did we know the pace isn't slower, there is just less traffic! Our goal is to make you as welcome as friends and family, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Our mission is for you to leave saying, "I love this place and how I feel when I'm here, and I can't wait to come back!"

Why the Owner Chose Dahlonega, GA, USA:
From the moment you crest the hill coming into Dahlonega and see the mountain views, you should be a believer. Once you enter our private, gated community of Trahlyta Estates, take in the views all around and enjoy looking at the quaint log style homes of this community. Once you enter the driveway at Laurel Ridge, you are in for a surprise. The views will take your breath away! Once we saw the views, we knew this was the spot we wanted to build on. Even though you are tucked away in your own mountain retreat, you are close to all the fun the area has to offer. Charming, pristine suites give you lots of room where you need it. This quiet, gated area can be anything you want it to be....an escape for relaxation or a getaway for a special celebration. Located right off Hwy 60, bikers, bicyclists, wine enthusiasts, wedding guests and hikers find paradise! Enjoy the many trout streams, state parks and waterfalls in the area. We have a book in the Treehouse listing the waterfalls, and many of the guests have left comments sharing some of their favorite personal experiences while visiting. Before you come, feel free to call and let me give you some personal recommendations and suggest where you might need reservations. Come see us, you won't be disappointed.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Step out your private entrance and enjoy the Chattahoochee National Forest. Wander down to the firepit with it's fantastic views to have your morning coffee while watching the sun come up and see the clouds nestled in the mountains, something you won't forget. Enjoy a meal at the picnic table, go down to the swing at the forest's edge, just pick a spot to relax. If you can't stand being disconnected, there is wifi. Have a taste of mountain living at it's best.
