Easy to Moderate

If you are like many people today gearing down from the fast pace of life can be very difficult. However, in little more than an hour from Atlanta, you can be in one of the most scenic and beautiful areas in North Georgia. Relax in the outside hot tub while looking at a star filled sky or spend some time in the North Georgia Mountains. There is plenty to do in the area including boating, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, tubing, and rafting. A large parking pad makes it convenient to bring your own boat or personal water craft. Boat ramps are close to the house but no private docks are allowed on this un-crowded lake actually making it nice to ski, fish, or see the lake on a pontoon.

This is will be a non-structured weekend retreat to get you a little closer to nature, and give you a chance to let the beautiful mountains of North Georgia release you from the stresses of everyday life.

We will provide information on trails, and activities in the area, but all activities will be up to the individual.

We will have group meals Friday night, Saturday for breakfast and dinner, and Sunday morning. Sack lunches will be provided for those who wish to get out during the day.

Required Items to Bring:
The lodge will supply all necessary linens, but you may want to bring an extra towel for the hottub.
