Local Activities

Summer is back, and the return of our “perfect” mountain weather brings with it all of the fun summer activities in the area. The folks just down the road at Fort Mountain State Park have worked hard these last months in making many improvements to the grounds, hiking trails and lake area, so be sure to stop and have a look, or a dip in the lake. Fishing, hiking, cycling and water activities are in full swing and Spring blessed us with lots of rain so everything is brilliant green. The Gardens and grounds at the Inn have never been prettier, and we have blooms that we’ve never seen before… the birds and butterflys are everywhere, and make the perfect “entertainment” if you’d rather while away the afternoon on the patio. Or, head to Ellijay, GA or Blue Ridge, GA for the day, there’s always some new shop or eatery in our little mountain towns!
