The vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Property was in an excellent location to be able to relax, unwind, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the great outdoors.

It was convient to many attractions of the area and located conveniently. House was clean and there was a lot of room to spread out.

Will bring all of family back for next visit. It would be great to see the driveway get paved all the way to bottom of the hill to the house

to make it easier to navigate the driveway. Really enjoyed my time at the LODGE. Would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

While an estate sale was conducted at our home in Alpharetta, GA, we were able to escape just an hour away into a wonderful cabin in the woods! Hard to believe such a peaceful place exists so close to Atlanta. I was able to totally decompress during a very stressful time. My husband, son and friend were able to fish right in the river there and kayak as well. Very close to Dahlonega and many good restaurants. The cabin has everything and my favorite spot is the reading nook up in the master suite. Some very comfy couches that look out a picture window with a view of the river! In the morning it was nice to have coffee out on the deck! We read some of the reviews about the property manager being so close, but we never saw her and it did not bother us a bit. We took three cars and parked one up on the cul-de-sac and it was no big deal. We would definitely do a return trip.

Thank you so much for sharing your home! My daughter's graduation celebration and my Mother's Day weekend with all moms and gran moms was amazing! We will be back and will certainly recommend your rental to our friends and family.

Everything was perfect!

Very clean and beautifully decorated! Access to river was amazing!

So peaceful and relaxing! Very close to most anywhere in Dahlonega! Looking forward to our return.

Incredible experience !

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO. It was a great experience. We stayed here for my brothers wedding in Monteluce. I was impressed by how easy the process was to rent with Dutch. The lodge was clean and beautiful inside. We felt safe even though we were in the woods. I would stay here again. It was awesome.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the Monarch for our sons wedding at a nearby venue. We held his rehearsal dinner at the home. Dutch was very accommodating and communication was excellent! Dinner went wonderfully (all the guests loved the home as well) and had plenty of room for all our family. Also wanted to mention the home was spotless! I am very picky about such things. Usually feel like I need to clean rentals before I can unpack. Lovely home and beautiful setting!
