My husband and I took a 2 day, 1 night, "get-out-of-the-house and away from it all" trip last weekend. We stayed at the Amicalola Falls Lodge. Being somewhat off-season, the park felt somewhat secluded, but we loved this as we do not especially like the crowds. We hiked up to the falls, edged with ice and beautiful. We contemplated going into Dawsonville to eat dinner but stayed at the lodge and ate at the restaurant . We were seated at a window table and watched the sun go down over the mountains. It was absolutely beautiful! We watched a family of deer graze below us on the lawn. The food and service were good. The next morning, we had the complimentary breakfast and sat at the same window table. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I would recommend this park and lodge to anyone who just wants to get away for awhile. The "Winterlogical" room rate was only $69 and was more than worth it for the peace and quiet it afforded. This is definitely not the place for those who want to stay "in the middle of everything" with crowds, entertainment, etc., but it was perfect for us.
