Beautiful property

Beautiful property to wander and explore. Cabin is older but has lots of space to either be together or hang out by yourself.

Beautiful cabin on a beautiful river

  • 5 of 5

Very well maintained cabin and well appointed. It felt like staying at a friend's cabin, not your typical rental. 3 bedrooms and each can have it's own bathroom. 1 bed/bath on each floor. Great kitchen to cook in, everything you need. On 3 acres on the etowah river.

Beauty, peace and tranquility !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Monarch Lodge before, and it was wonderful to be able to spend time there again. The cabin, property, and ambiance are wonderful. It is very warm and welcoming, and Dutch is a great host. Dahlonega is a wonderful town, and the location is perfect for day trips to many areas. Don't ever miss Brasstown Bald !!!

Big, Absoultely beautiful house. Peaceful surroundings. Awesome river behind the house.

  • 5 of 5

Dutch's house was exactly what we were looking for. Really beautiful house with very comfortable beds. Nice sized kitchen for cooking, etc. Nice, big deck for hanging outside. Beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings outdoors. The river was so much fun to trounce around and play in. We had a great time in the river swimming, kayaking and playing in the waterfall. Dutch was very easy to communicate with and even helped us get ESPN on the television. As we arrived, we realized we didn't get that channel and upon requesting it, Dutch called up the company and set it up for us. That was truly special as it allowed us to watch the Georgia game. As huge Dawgs fans that meant a lot to us and helped make the weekend even more special. It was three days in serene beauty and quiet paradise. Couldn't have asked for a better trip. Thank you, Dutch.
