Wonderful home for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful property for 3 nights. We were in town for a girls weekend. The home was amazing, full of everything we could possibly need. There was more than enough room for the 5 of us. The location was beautiful, close to town and the wineries. Barbara was a lovely host. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable, even turning the outside lights on for us when we were arriving home after dark, and leaving us chocolates. We are convinced we stayed in the best spot in Dahlonega! I wish we could of stayed longer. We hope to visit again to make more memories!

Wonderful stay for wine country weekend

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is like a Buckhead residence in a most lovely setting near Dahlonega. Six of us stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed the luxury of the terrace level rental portion of the house. It’s exquisitely furnished with gorgeous antiques, super comfy beds good linens. Evenings and mornings on the porch overlooking the large pond watching the ducks were super special. The owners are very accommodating and left us wanting for nothing. Can not wait to go back!

Beautiful home and Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Birchwood Lakes Estates was wonderful. Barbara and her husband Stuart were delightful and made sure our stay was perfect! The place is huge and has a gorgeous porch off 2 of the bedrooms where you can sit and relax and look at the lake. We took several beautiful pictures of the moon reflecting off the lake. My daughter was getting married at Wolf Mountain Vineyard and Barbara's place is just 1/2 mile away. We couldn't have been more pleased as it relieved us of a lot of travel time. In addition to all this, they have a precious Bengal cat, named Daisy, for anyone that is a cat lover. She lives upstairs with Barbara and Stuart and doesn't bother anyone but she was a "plus" for us as we are all cat lovers.

If you are looking for a great place to stay, this is it! And you couldn't ask for two nicer landlords whiles staying there.

Lovely and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay in this lovely well-appointed portion of the house. The VRBO is the lower level of a lovely home set in the woods. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms with private baths and a very spacious and comfortable living area in which to relax. As mentioned in the description, there's no kitchen but the refreshment area suited our needs. We were there for a wedding and out for most meals. The house is conveniently located to Dahlonega square and to the wedding venue we attended, White Oaks Barn. It's also down the street from Wolf Winery but we didn't have time to explore that.

Barbara, the owner, bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable. She is available should anything arise and truly wants your stay to be pleasant.
