My husband and I made our first trip to this B&B as a week-end getaway. Fred and Mary Beth, the owners and hosts, are friendly and more than willing to provide suggestions on things to do and see while in the area. We stayed in the Chickadee Room, which was furnished with a comfortable, queen-sized bed, sitting area, private bath and a small refrigerator. We also had a private outdoor patio, which was nice for reading and relaxing. Unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity to go inside the yurts, as they were occupied. The breakfast was healthy and delicious, and if the weather is nice, you have the choice of eating in the dining room or on the outdoor patio. The hosts are happy to chat with guests in the evenings, and will offer you a glass of wine. If you prefer privacy, that wish is respected. As a fellow gardener, I enjoyed strolling the grounds. Mary Beth joined me on my walk, and we had a nice time "talking plants". I hope to return in the future.
The Wolf Mountain Winery is nearby, with tastings and lovely views. We had two meals at the Crimson Moon, in downtown Dahlonega. The food was consistently good, but the service wasn't particularly attentive at the second meal. Note - if the Crimson Moon is having live music, the performance is held in the dining area. The noise level isn't excessive, but could be problematic if you don't enjoy the performer or had planned to engage in conversation over dinner. We kayaked the Chestatee River, renting gear from Appalachain Outfitters.
