Firelight River Cottage is a recently renovated 2 bedroom/1bunkroom cottage located at the convergence of the Chestatee River and Town Creek in historic Dahlonega, Georgia. River rapids, expansive, level lawn, colorful flower gardens, and campfire rings are at your doorstep.
The beautiful, pastoral setting is the perfect place to get away from it all. It is nestled in the heart of North Georgia’s wine country (5 wineries are within a 2-5 mile radius of the cottage).
The property is a fisherman’s dream. It offers many easy, level entry points into the river which is stocked with rainbow, brook, & brown trout. The natural beach is an inviting spot for sunning and swimming.
Three patios provide lovely areas for outdoor cooking and dining.
Golfers may enjoy playing a round at Achasta, a Jack Nicholas signature course.
Trail rides are available through nearby stables. Shops, museums and restaurants are just a 10 minute drive away in charming, historic Dahlonega.
The fully stocked kitchen, HD TV with sports package, and huge wood-burning fireplace make indoor living fun.
My husband and I just enjoyed 5 lazy days at the cottage. We started each day by feeding the trout that hang out in a cool, deep hole near our campfire ring. We spent our mornings gardening, traveling and hiking along the Russell Scenic Highway, shopping in Dahlonega, tubing the river (right in front of the cottage), and having lunch in town. Each afternoon, we sat in beach chairs with our feet in the cool river water while we read great books. We prepared gourmet meals and dined outside under the stars every evening.
We have worked for 2 years to perfect this lovely place. It is in pristine condition. The only thing better than sharing it with others, is spending quite time there with each other.
David and Carol Brinson teach in Georgia's public school system. They enjoy spending their free time hiking, gardening, and relaxing in the North Georgia Mountains.
The charming and historic mountain town of Dahlonega, GA influenced our decision to invest here. Three wineries are located within 2 miles of the property. World class trout fishing is available on the property. Hiking and biking opportunities surround us. Cute shops and wonderful restaurants abound.
We have just completed a total renovation of the property. Lovely gardens grace the lush lawn that stretches from the cottage to the river. Fishermen enjoy numerous, level entry points into the Chestatee. . When guests are inside, a flat screen TV with sports package, huge wood burning fireplace, and fully equipped kitchen make indoor living fun.
