After a conference in Atlanta, my husband and I wanted to head north to do a little exploring in the area. We love hiking and camping and were very excited to find a B& B that had yurts! We immediately booked a yurt and are only disappointment was that we had to leave after two nights. Mary Beth and Fred were the most gracious hosts from the moment we stepped on the property, greeting us with delicious homemade lemonade and cookies! We enjoyed hearing the history of the house and share their enthusiasm for green living. Once we settled into the yurt there was a lovely thunderstorm.....with all the benefits of being in a tent but not getting wet! We have stayed at B & B inns all over the country and this by far is one of our favorites! The breakfasts were legendary and MaryBeth's homemade stuffed French toast and fresh fruit with basil syrup were out of this world. A heavy downpour during breakfast gave us lots of extra time to talk with MaryBeth and Fred, and we found them to be so interesting and knowledgeable about living an environmentally conscious life.
The town of Dahlogena was a short ride from the B&B and certainly worth exploring; quaint and charming shops offered an array of interesting things and we found several good restaurants ( we liked the Oyster House.) If If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, and are somewhat adventurous about staying in a yurt, and enjoy great food and conversation with terrific hosts
then this is the place to stay! We will certainly be back again.
