About Daniel Gross

Growing up, we always loved the woods of the North Georgia Mountains. We have travelled all over the world but always come back to North Georgia. You will too.

Daniel Gross purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Why Daniel Gross chose Northeast Mountains

We use the house ourselves and rent it to discerning, respectful guests who appreciate its beauty, charm and comfort and enjoy the privacy, peace and quiet.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Huntcliff Lodge is in a wooded hollow and is secluded and private. The Tesnatee river at your doorstep offers scenic beauty and the sound of clear, rushing water. The main house accommodates 7 guests and the adjoining 'Gingerbread House' offers privacy and room for 3 more with a kitchenette and private bath. There is room for gatherings and also to spread out for private conversations, meditation or reading.

Perfect North Georgia Mountains Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Huntcliff Lodge was perfect for our girl's weekend in the mountains! The house slept 10 people comfortably and we enjoyed hanging out by the pool. The living areas of the house were also nice, as was the kitchen. We brought all of our own food and found everything we needed to cook. Another side note - so great to have hair dryers under the sink in the bathroom! Out of our group of 10, only 2 people brought hair dryers so we definitely appreciated that. We went tubing in Helen and wine tasting at Wolf Mountain Vineyard and the cabin was perfectly located for everything we wanted to do. Thanks again for a great stay!

Perfect wedding party retreat

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to house several groomsmen along with our family during my son's wedding near Dahlonega. This house was perfect! The house was very comfortable, it had room for everyone, the pool/spa was a great place to relax and the constant sound of the river added to the ambiance. It would be a great place for a few couples or a family getaway. The owner was very responsive.

Great place in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and would be such a nice place to visit in the summer in order to take advantage of the outdoor features both on the property and nearby. All of our family enjoyed our three-night stay over the New Years. The listing description was very accurate, the property is clean and well maintained with nice appliances in the kitchen. The owner is easy to get in touch with with quick response time to emails. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Beautiful property. Relaxing get-away.

  • 4 of 5

Owner has been very responsive from reservation to post vacation requests. The home is easy to get to, well stocked, close to shopping and restaurants, yet has an isolated feel. Great for a relaxing, back to nature getaway!

Worth the trip

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great spot for a variety of activities. Use it as a home base for excursions to the local outdoor scenery, check out small towns surrounding the area, or simply stay in and soak up the outdoors in that excellent pool area. The pool really is as nice as it looks. The drive to nearby areas is easy enough to be convenient yet in this serene setting you will feel all the privacy you can desire.

The river just out back is a treat to see and hear (easily I would add) from the deck and there are a number of smaller rapids and even a small flowing area just up stream almost willing to call a waterfall with a quick romp through the water to enjoy it.

Although the outdoor fun sold this for us, the house is plenty nice as well with ample amenities and very open and spacious feeling. The owner is easy to contact and quick to respond.

All in, a very enjoyable trip. We would love to come back and have no reservation with staying here again.
