Come celebrate Fall with us as we venture into the North Georgia Mountains for a Halloween weekend getaway.

We値l be staying at Dancing Bear Cabin in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Dancing Bear Cabin is a new cabin with an open living room with gas log fireplace, kitchen and dining area and year round spectacular, unobstructed mountain view on each of the 3 levels. The basement recreation room has a pool table and foosball table as well as a 6-person hot tub on the lower level deck under the stars.

After arriving on Friday evening, we will have a Northeastern homestyle Italian dinner followed by an evening of fun at the cabin. Since it痴 October 31, we値l definitely be sharing some Halloween Spirit. Bring your best scary stories to tell in the hot tub.

After a hearty breakfast Saturday morning, there are plenty activities in the area such as horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing, and shopping.

Saturday evening, we値l have dinner at the cabin followed by another evening of fun. Sunday is yours to plan. We値l be heading back to Atlanta sometime after brunch.
