Big Canoe vacation rentals

Big Canoe offers a private getaway in the picturesque South

A Big Canoe vacation rental puts you on the doorstep of one of the South’s most picturesque private vacation communities, and promises the perfect escape for any visitor looking to explore the great outdoors. Set across 8000 acres of lush woodlands, mountains, and meadows, and only an hour from Atlanta, Big Canoe is a laid-back spot where you can hit the links, explore 20 miles of hiking trails, or even take a dip in a waterfall.

Get into the great outdoors in Big Canoe

Big Canoe’s beautiful scenery provides the ideal incentive to get out in the fresh air and discover the charms of northern Georgia. There are miles of trails to explore, carrying you past streams, ruined bridges, butterfly habitats, and wildflowers—it’s a dazzling place to be when the sun rises over the treetops. If you’re looking to get off your feet, there’s also a Jeep trail and a cycling route. The on-site lakes offer family-friendly activities like pontoon-boat cruises and swimming, while resort-style amenities include a fitness center, a lap pool, tennis courts, and a golf course.

Your Big Canoe to-do list

A Big Canoe vacation rental puts you in the middle of a community bursting with natural beauty and modern amenities. There’s a pro shop showcasing the latest fitness gear, and the casual on-site restaurants offer pub-grub, open-air dining, and big-screen sports. There’s also a range of great dining options right up the road, including farm-to-table restaurants and European eateries, as well as the North Georgia Premium Outlets, a popular shopping spot. Big Canoe provides a relaxing haven away from the bustle, but if you can’t resist a big-city excursion, Atlanta is only an hour away.

A journey through the seasons in Big Canoe

Big Canoe experiences 4 seasons, but enjoys relatively mild winters. January is traditionally the coldest month, with average highs in the upper 40s. The area’s location in the mountains means that it’s less humid than nearby Atlanta, and a Big Canoe vacation rental near one of the lakes or pools will let you cool off with an invigorating dip. Fall in Big Canoe is pleasant, with average highs near 70 in October, and the foliage provides a picturesque backdrop for a hike or bike ride along the Chocktaw Trail.

Gold, dogwoods, and Cabernet: the Big Canoe area

Nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia Appalachian Mountains, Big Canoe’s landscape features rolling hills, 3 manmade lakes (Disharoon, Sconti, and Lake Petit), lush valleys, and towering dogwood trees. It’s situated between Dawsonville, where you’ll find the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi, and the village of Dahlonega, once a gold-rush boomtown and now the heart of Georgia’s wine country. The area has a thriving residential community—60% of the population live here year-round—so even though you’re away from the bustle, all the comforts of home can be found on the doorstep of your Big Canoe vacation rental.
