About Judy Wheeler
A Michigan girl and a Georgia boy decided we wanted a mountain retreat. We built our cabin, Pine Cone Lodge, that we rented to local wedding guests. After falling in love with this area, we retired and moved up here in 2010. My husband, Butch, loves grooming the grounds and has planted many of the Mountain Laurel you see growing. Well, he couldn't keep up 2 homes, so we "downsized", or that is what we thought we were doing. After some time living here, we decided the kitchen was too small, as were the closets and bath. Soon we were knocking out walls, adding a garage and carriage house, sunroom, screen porch, expanding the kitchen and enlarging our bathroom and closets. When the house grew, the decks needed to grow, and they did. After a couple of years, (I was missing the smell of new wood and excitement of construction), we decided to finish the Terrace Suite, the lower level of our home, and here we are....2018, hoping you will enjoy our property as much as we do.
Judy Wheeler purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Judy Wheeler chose Dahlonega
The beauty of the mountains as you come over the hill of Hwy 60 before you get to Dahlonega had struck me from the first time I saw it. When we decided to do a mountain rental/retreat, we didn't think twice. Then, when the Georgia Wine Highway was designated in the area, we knew it would have a great future. Dahlonega is a wonderful, friendly, small town, full of people from all walks of life and locations. Many are newcomers to the area, so people are looking to make social connections. That makes it easy to participate and feel a part of this great area.
What makes this Apartment unique
We loved the views, security and privacy of our property, while still being located near Dahlonega and the wineries. When building we took the views and privacy into consideration when planning placement of the home and windows, to take full advantage of these features. Enjoy your brief time in the mountains in a cabin atmosphere, rather than the hustle and bustle of a hotel, and see for yourself.

This house is nothing short of charming!" Mark Sunderland, Interior Designer.
I received explicit directions (plus an offer to call with any questions) and a detailed list of where everything is and how to use it. The view in person is MUCH prettier than the photo. There were lovely wind chimes (the nice ones) that added a nice touch. If you're looking for a beautiful, quiet place in the mountains, THIS IS IT!!! I look forward to my next visit! Mark Sunderland, Allied ASID.
Nothing makes us happier than to know our guests have enjoyed what we have to offer, and that our property has met or exceeded their expectations. After reading your review, we are extremely proud that an interior designer such as yourself, appreciated our design efforts and comfort and welcoming vibes we hope to present. We aim to please! Judy and Butch
The Wheelers were fantastic and wonderful hosts!
My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding and the Wheelers were exceptional to deal with and worked with us and our reservation. The place was awesome and beautiful! Would highly recommend their place. Just wish we were able to enjoy it longer 😊
For a very short getaway this is the place to stay!
The location, the views, the house, etc. was fantastic. My girlfriend absolutely loved it. We will be coming back.
Lovely setting and gorgeous views
We really enjoyed our stay. The lodge was roomy, comfortable and well appointed. The bathroom was very nice and everything was clean. After a very long drive, we were thrilled to have the hot tub ready and waiting for us. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Only missing elements were no microwave and couldn’t find the thermostat to lower the temp, as we like it cold when we sleep. Maybe it should be labeled where to find it? In all, I would say this is a wonderful retreat with fantastic views of the mountains. Charming and worth a visit.
Great Weekend with breathtaking view
The property is beyond amazing, even better than photos portray. Had a great stay!
We had a wonderful stay! I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a quiet weekend getaway.
We are in the midst of all Dahlonega and the NE GA Mountains has to offer. The Appalachian Trail and waterfalls, easy hikes, fly fishing, bicycling on the 6 Gap route, gold mining and wineries are all around us. Our property adjoins the Chattahoochee National Forest, so you can walk out the door and start your own exploring. Or, hike down to our small lake and feed the koi. Be prepared, the walk back up the hill is a killer! A must and our favorite is brunch at Wolf Mtn Vineyards-make a reservation, they fill up fast. The area vineyards and tasting rooms usually have music on the weekends, and very friendly atmosphere. Give a girl a glass of wine and she doesn't meet a stranger! Don't miss out on gold mining...everyone must try it at least once. Wander into town and check out the Gold Museum, Visitor's Center, and menus and entertainment at our restaurants. Before you visit, check the NGCSU website. They often have some wonderful activities scheduled. The town square is anchored by the Gold Museum, and on Saturdays you will find lots of different musicians jamming. If all of this becomes too much, come back and relax in the hot tub or at the fire pit and listen.....you won't be disturbed by the sounds you would hear if you were staying at a hotel. This is your own little country retreat.
