Discover the charm of small-town mountain living

Tucked into the northeast corner of Georgia near the North and South Carolina borders, the tiny mountain hamlet of Tiger is the epitome of small-town living, complete with an iconic drive-in movie theater. Incorporated in 1904, the town's year-round population doesn't top 500 people, yet it's brimming with charm (and a few wineries to boot). Sitting in the shadow of Tiger Mountain and surrounded by rolling forested hills, there are plenty of chances to get out and soak up the fresh mountain air. A Tiger vacation rental is the perfect place to disconnect from the stress of everyday life.

Decadent drinks by day, drive-ins by night

There are precious few classic drive-in theaters left in the country, and Tiger has a great one. Enjoy a movie under the stars after a long day of hiking in the surrounding mountains. Black Rock Mountain State Park has countless miles of trails and scenic overlooks, plus beautiful areas for picnicking and fishing. The scenic drives in the area can't be beat, especially when the fall leaves are in full effect. Leave the car at home for some top-notch wine tasting at the town's 2 wineries. For an adrenaline rush, try some whitewater rafting on the Chattooga River.

You'll be kidding around with goats in Tiger

You may not find any tigers at your Tiger vacation rental, but they've got goats! One of the town's most unique attractions is Goats On The Roof, a quirky family-friendly draw that offers a little bit of everything, from Amish furniture, to gemstone mining, to actual goats that you can feed. For some adult fun, sip some tasty vintages at Tiger Mountain Vineyards and Stone Creek Vineyards. At the Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center, you can learn all about the historic pioneer culture of the Southern Appalachians. No visit would be complete without taking in a flick at the iconic Tiger Drive-In.

A world of sultry summers and fiery foliage

If snow's not your thing, you're in luck. You'll almost never see the white stuff at your Tiger vacation rental. Temperatures might dip below freezing in January and February, but on average the coldest months of November to March tend to hover in the 40s. Summers are hot – be prepared for temperatures in the 90s anywhere from April through September, and don't be surprised if you see triple-digit temps in July and August. In October, the hills come alive in a vibrant display of fall colors that you won't want to miss.

Soak up the greens and oranges of the Blue Ridge forests

Towering over town is Tiger Mountain, one of the most prominent peaks in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains. Rolling out on all sides are the forested foothills of the Appalachian Highlands, which come alive with a burst of color every autumn. Plenty of hiking trails let you get up close and personal with the fiery leaves, plus plenty of friendly wildlife (thankfully no actual tigers). Known for its rapids, the nearby Chattooga River eventually takes you to the stunning waterfalls of Tallulah Gorge State Park.
