The Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia is a place to get away – cleaner air, cooler temperatures, a slower pace. One of America’s natural delights, the mountains and forests of Appalachia hold a history, beauty, and mystery that is forever enticing.
Here you’ll find quiet, solitude, and romance in nature, or activity and adventure if that’s your preference. Small towns nearby offer shops for browsing, restaurants for dining, and antique treasures to be discovered.
