Memorial Day Weeekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We decided last minute to go up for a long weekend. Barbara was very accommodating. The house is well stocked, conveniently located to wineries, hiking, and downtown Dahlonega. We used Mama's taxi service, which was excellent. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were very comfortable. Although there was not a full kitchen, there was a microwave, coffee bar, and refrigerator in the garage we could use. It will not disappoint you.

Stunning home tucked away in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

The home was more stunning than the pictures shown! We were visiting for a funeral and needed something to where family from out of town could gather after the service. Barbara was very accommodating and was available if we had any questions or needed anything. The home is decorated immaculately. We had a private entrance to the home. If I had to make a suggestion it would be to have a small refrigerator in the kitchenette. I loved the personal touches such as her providing coffee and creamer as well as shampoo and bath gel. My boys enjoyed our free time fishing in her stocked pond. This home is close to restaurants and shopping and an hour north of Atlanta.

Wonderful, lovely, perfect weekend spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Barbara Aime's place for the weekend of my wedding. She was a WONDERFUL host, very accommodating, helpful, and always responsive whenever I had a question. My bridesmaids and I stayed overnight, and spent the day getting ready at her place. Her property is beautiful, the inside is clean and well kept, and we loved everything about staying here. I would highly recommend this place for a weekend wedding, a weekend getaway, or anything else that you are thinking of. It's a beautiful property and she is very sweet and helpful and accommodating! LOVED my experience here!

Great stay and location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect place for us to stay in our recent trip to Dahlonega. We came for a wedding and went to the rehearsal dinner at Wolf Mountain (less than a mile away!) and then the wedding reception at Neverland Farms. It was large enough to fit my husband, son, parents, and in-laws with plenty of room to spare! Barbara was a great host and was very informative about the area and the apartment. I would recommend Birchwood Lake Estate to others travelling to Dahlonega. A few things important to note there is not a kitchen and the apartment is part of the main house in the basement.

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!
