Duluth vacation rentals

A slice of small-city charm in Georgia’s Duluth

Duluth is a small, quaint, and friendly city set in the sun-struck state of Georgia, just outside the state’s bustling capital city of Atlanta. The leafy, tree-lined streets are lined with grand redbrick townhouses and dotted with flowery public parks. The array of Duluth vacation rentals includes cozy cottages and family-sized homes with tranquil, secluded gardens gathered around refreshing swimming pools. With the city’s mix of shopping opportunities, cultural attractions, and charming fairs and festivals, there’s plenty to do, whether you’re traveling with the kids or enjoying a romantic break.

Serious shopping in downtown Duluth

Venture out of your Duluth vacation rental and treat yourself to an indulgent shopping trip downtown. Here you’ll find several shopping centers strung with clothing and cosmetics stores, and plenty of cute boutiques dotted along Main Street, such as florists and chocolatiers. Just north of Main Street, the French Quarter Shopping Center celebrates trendy vintage stores, independent book stores, and antiques shops filled with rare finds. If shopping’s not your bag, enjoy a game of golf on one of Duluth’s many tree-lined courses – there are mini and crazy golf courses for the kids, too.

Experience Duluth’s heritage and wilderness

Get to grips with the area’s captivating history at the Southeastern Railway Museum. Due to its wealth of immaculately preserved rail vehicles – which include turn-of-the-century steam locomotives and cabooses – this museum was recently awarded the title of Georgia’s official transportation history museum. Nature-lovers can take a trip to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area – a 20-minute drive west of Duluth – with its riverside hiking trails, deep forestland, and hidden historical relics, like the 1853 covered timber bridge, and the vine-clad ruins of Ivy Mill, a cotton mill destroyed by the Unionists in 1864.

Hot, humid summers and red-orange falls

Duluth delights in a humid subtropical climate, and experiences all 4 seasons. Winters are cool and can be unpredictable, sometimes welcoming balmy spring-like highs, and sometimes seeing extended days of ice and snow. The peak summer months – July and August – enjoy regular temperatures in the 80s, with a blend of intense sunshine and hot, tropical rain. Bear in mind that humidity is high in summer, so booking a Duluth vacation rental with a garden and pool in this season is wise. Fall brings balmy to cool temperatures, fiery displays of foliage, and the family-fun of Duluth Fall Festival.

Magical woodland and rejuvenating lakeland

While the small-town charm of Duluth makes it feel a million miles away from a buzzing capital city, it’s actually a suburb of Atlanta, which is a 35 to 40-minute drive away, 28 miles northeast of the city. The Chattahoochee River National Park displays the best of Duluth’s wilderness, swathed in ash, birch, beech, and basswood trees, and full of foxes, woodpeckers, and darting belted kingfishers. Further north of Duluth lies Lake Lanier, a vast and shimmering artificial lake-reservoir with plenty of pine-shaded swim beaches.
