This is a romantic honeymoon cottage or weekend get-a-way! It's also very family friendly.

The Master Bedroom and only bedroom has cathedral ceilings, a bay window with a view of the backside. The bed is a KING and is a Stone County Ironworks Bed. The antique doors to the bedroom came out of a Church in London over 60 years ago.

When it rains, you'll enjoy the sound of the rain on the tin roof. If it's windy, you'll enjoy the wind chimes. This home is well insulted so it is very cozy and comfortable all year around. We provide linens, towels, everything you need.

The kitchen is cute and cozy and there have been plenty of gourmet meals prepared here if you like to cook. We also provide nice dishes in case you're in the mood for a candle light dinner. There is a nice large deck off the kitchen with a table for 4 and an umbrella, and a nice gas grill.

About Karen Malaga

We have 3 children who love The Rockhouse Cottage in Dahlonega. We enjoy watching our children play in the country. It's so quiet and peaceful. When you stay 2 days, it feels like a week! Dahlonega Square is complete with some of the best restaurants.

Karen Malaga purchased this house in 1986

Why Karen Malaga chose North Georgia Mountains

It takes us only 1 hour to get to Dahlonega from Atlanta. We felt the need to get out of the busy city of Atlanta to enjoy the quiet life in the mountains. It reminds us of who we are. It is used as a 2nd home for many weekends for friends and family. This is a honeymoon cottage, too! The hot tub for two is awesome. Also, the perfect getaway for an anniversary. Many proposals have been made at this cottage.

The rocks on the cabin were placed on the wall by us. The door to the bedroom was a gift from Joe Daole. It came out of an old church in London over 60 years ago.

This cabin will stay in the family forever.

What makes this house unique

The people in Dahlonega are so nice. We love going to the Festivals, The Zoo, Horseback riding. Shopping. Visits to the waterfalls. The views. Swimming at the community pool is a lot of fun! We enjoy the time we have to do so many fun things with our family. Just being together is what it's all about. Our favorite thing to do is sit on the swing or bench and talk.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend getaway staying at the Rockhouse Cottage! The owners were so easy and great to contact, the cottage was well stocked with supplies, the backyard and surroundings were beautiful and the quaint inside was so beautiful! The jacuzzi tub and hot tub worked well and were very relaxing. Downtown Dahlonega was nearby and a fun town to visit for a dinner out. We also hiked nearby Amicalola Falls as recommended by the owners and it was INCREDIBLE! We would highly recommend this cottage and would love to visit again!

Beautiful cottage nestled in nature

  • 5 of 5

We spent a short weekend at the cottage and fell in love with it! It had everything we needed for a quick getaway...close to the adorable town of Dahlonega, but nice and secluded from everything once we got "home." The arbor leading to the cottage was covered with blooming was so beautiful! And the cottage itself was just the right size for the 2 of us. We loved the garden tub, with plenty of hot water and a gorgeous view of the back.

We had the best honeymoon! We were close to the Dahlonega square so we had many romantic dinners. We enjoyed a romantic dinner on the deck with a beautiful view! The Hot Tub was so awesome and relaxing! We look forward to returning for our anniversaries! We highly suggest this home!

Charming Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying here. The house was as described. There are neighbors nearby but it had the privacy we were looking for. Short drive of five minutes or so into Dahlonega so very convenient to everything. The house has everything you need. All we needed to bring was food. My only complaint was that the jetted tub inside didn't seem to be working for some reason. The owner said he would look into it. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay. A nice relaxing place for a getaway. We didn't bring our kids but there seemed to be plenty of games and a neat set of bunk beds for them to sleep on.

Owner's Response: Our jetted tub technician made a service call right after we received the notice on the tub. The air switch which turns on the jets had stopped working. A new switch was ordered and installed and the tub is working fine again.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This trip's purpose was to getaway and kindle with the love of my life. It was a successful trip. The cottage is private and peaceful, and extremely quiet even with neighbors close by. We made dinner at the cottage, utilizing the grill and the kitchen that is well equippedWe have added this cottage to our list of places to return to in the future.e have added this cottage to our list of places to return to in the future.for a small sized space. The king size bed is beyond comfortable, we slept well, and enjoyed waking up to the beautiful views out of the many windows. The hot tub on the deck outside the bedroom was perfect and relaxing. The owner provides huge, fluffy towels and warm robes. Our only dislike were the televisions, they definitely need updated. It may not bother some, but with it being our goal to just "hang around" the cottage, it was for for us.

Communication with the owner was easy and they provide several ways to reach them. We communicated with Ben and he was so informative and nice. Thanks Ben!! Directions provided from the owners to the cottage were extremely easy to follow. Check-in and check-out was smooth. We have definitely added this cottage to our list of places to stay in the future.

The cottage feels as if you are far away from everything, yet so close to downtown Dahlonega and gold mines for panning and touring mine shaft. The day we left, we drove over to nearby Helen and Cleveland to spend the day, just 30 minutes away. Also, if you don't feel up to cooking, we discovered that Domino's Pizza delivers to the cottage.

Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

You can not go wrong with this cabin! We read the reviews and saw that there was one negative one (thinking this person is the type that can't be pleased easily). We absolutely had not complaints. The cabin was just what we needed and the owner was more than accommodating to our needs. We look forward to our next stay.
