Explore the North Georgia Mountains

There is so much to see and do

let us help you plan your stay, or not.


At our North Georgia Bed and Breakfast

You can unwind by the river enjoying the lush grounds - and do nothing - if that's the type of get-away you desire! Or, you can seek adventure in town and the surrounding area.  We are an ideal location for doing 'nothing' or everything - it's totally up to you!
