The view teases you from the moment you pull into our driveway. Once inside it simply captivates you. Equally remarkable is the historic town of Dahlonega itself, with its quintessential curthouse square. Our home, about 7 miles north of town, is perched on the side of Cedar Mountain. Settle into a wicker rocker on our porch with your morning cup of coffee and watch the sun climbing over Yonah Mountain and the Appalachian foothills.
Great restaurants, live theater, antiquing and panning for gold are just a few of the things to do while you're here. Just a quick turn off the Dahlonega Wine Trail, our home is a perfect place to stay if your planning to take a tour or attend an event. Then, there's also the hiking, waterfalls, truly amazing twisties, rafting, not to mention the exciting new North Georgia Canopy Tours in nearby Lula.
The house is a flexible combination of three suites, each with it's own stunning view and separate entrance. Carson's Run is a very unique home that can accommodate up to twelve in for a wedding party, family reunion or group vacation. Need something smaller? Each suite can be rented on its own.

Melissa and Steve currently live in Rhode Island and plan to relocate to Dahlonega in five years. An interior designer with a degree in business management coupled with a passionate motorcyclist and property manager make up this duo.
Steve stumbled into Dahlonega on a motorcycle trip with a couple of buddies in 1995. The postcard to Melissa that day read, 'You've just got to see this town!'. Ten years later we headed down to Georgia to have a look see. Skipping from town to town, Steve saved Dahlonega for last. It was love at first sight. Two days later we had found the house on Cedar Mountain and a year later it was ours.
Steve and Melissa Moore purchased this house in 2006
We chose Dahlonega because when we are here, we feel like we have stepped back in time, a time before fast-food. Dahlonega is a place where people really do say hi to folks they have never met. It's a place to live out our life where living matters. There's a kinship between North Georgia and the landscape of New England. Here, we can enjoy the warmer weather without giving up the changing seasons.
The house itself is unique, in that it is made up of three interconnected suites, each with it's own character. Families can spend time together catching up, while enjoying the privacy a stand alone cabin offers. Separate entrances let everyone come and go as they please without disturbing the others in the group. Portions of the house may be rented separately for smaller parties. Find the suites that works best for your group.
