“Excellent jumping off point to the Blue Ridge Mountains”

Couples from Connecticut, Wisconsin, California and Florida converged for 5 nights at the end of March. During that time we hiked, antiqued, rafted, hot tubbed and relaxed. Though there were 10 of us, the lodge was more than spacious enough to keep us from being cramped. It didn't hurt that we had perfect weather. We didn't need to use either of the gas fireplaces and only turned on the A/C for a short time. It was unfortunate that the windows weren't screened, as the fresh breeze would have been nice. We kept the windows closed to keep the limited, but present, bugs out (mostly moths).

The property managers had the lodge well prepared for our arrival, though we unplugged Mr. Buck after about 5 minutes. The hot tub, pool table and screened in grill area probably had the most use while we were there. The location was great - close enough to town for food runs, but definitely rural enough to relax.

We did and recommend the following activities:
- Walking around Blue Ridge
- Rafting the Nantahala
- Hiking the Benton - MacKaye Trail from GA-60 to the Swinging Bridge (7 miles of strenuous hiking)
- Climbing the stairs of Amicalola Falls (all 600 of them)

Avoid McCaysville and Copperhill, though the drive there is nice.

Take your time on the road leading up to the lodge, especially if you have a small car. Learn to drive the ridges of the road and not the valleys. If you're a liquor type person, bring your own or stock up in Ellijay. Fannin County sells beer and wine only.

Bring your food and drink, but leave your worries behind.
