Private, cozy retreat nestled in some of the highest mountains in North Georgia, 8 miles north of Dahlonega off of Hwy 60, adjacent to the Chattahoochee National Forest, situated in the midst of Georgia's Wine Highway. Enjoy wonderful views of sunrise and sunset from the private Treehouse deck. The treehouse was built in 2012, charmingly furnished, and has a large living and dining area. Kitchen amenities are microwave, toaster oven, 2 burner stove, coffeemaker, dishwasher and refrigerator. There is a Weber grill for outdoor grilling. Bath with shower is directly off the cozy sleeping nook, which has a very comfortable queen size futon. The living area also has a twin sleeper. Traveling with friends, or if you don't need kitchen facilities, consider the Terrace Suite, a newly completed one bedroom suite, encompassing the entire terrace level of Pine Cone Lodge. This suite has a private entrance, a large bedroom with queen bed, private bath, hot tub and wonderful views of the mountains. There is a Kuerig coffeemaker and freshly ground Starbucks for your pleasure. Wander the grounds of the lodge and enjoy a fire in the firepit, and fantastic views. Make yourself at home!
We are so excited about Dahlonega and our home and love to share. As part of our retirement we left Alpharetta to look for a slower pace. Little did we know the pace isn't slower, there is just less traffic! Our goal is to make you as welcome as friends and family, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Our mission is for you to leave saying, "I love this place and how I feel when I'm here, and I can't wait to come back!"

From the moment you crest the hill coming into Dahlonega and see the mountain views, you should be a believer. Once you enter our private, gated community of Trahlyta Estates, take in the views all around and enjoy looking at the quaint log style homes of this community. Once you enter the driveway at Laurel Ridge, you are in for a surprise. The views will take your breath away! Once we saw the views, we knew this was the spot we wanted to build on. Even though you are tucked away in your own mountain retreat, you are close to all the fun the area has to offer. Charming, pristine suites give you lots of room where you need it. This quiet, gated area can be anything you want it to be....an escape for relaxation or a getaway for a special celebration. Located right off Hwy 60, bikers, bicyclists, wine enthusiasts, wedding guests and hikers find paradise! Enjoy the many trout streams, state parks and waterfalls in the area. We have a book in the Treehouse listing the waterfalls, and many of the guests have left comments sharing some of their favorite personal experiences while visiting. Before you come, feel free to call and let me give you some personal recommendations and suggest where you might need reservations. Come see us, you won't be disappointed.
Step out your private entrance and enjoy the Chattahoochee National Forest. Wander down to the firepit with it's fantastic views to have your morning coffee while watching the sun come up and see the clouds nestled in the mountains, something you won't forget. Enjoy a meal at the picnic table, go down to the swing at the forest's edge, just pick a spot to relax. If you can't stand being disconnected, there is wifi. Have a taste of mountain living at it's best.
Judy, Butch and Pepper were perfect hosts! Great location! We will definitely be coming back!
Me and my husband came here for a quick weekend getaway and the tree house cabin was perfect for us! Clean and well maintained, this canin is perfect for a couple. Would recommend to anyone, we plan on returning!
The treehouse was ideal for me and my girlfriend. Judy's description of the treehouse and directions to the treehouse were extremely helpful and informative.
Judy and Butch were very nice and welcoming upon our arrival. First, we visited Dick's Creek Falls. It was serene and being able to get into the water was a lot fun. We spent the first night in the town square. It was fun and Mama's taxi provided us with a ride, tourist spot suggestions, and interesting facts about the town.
On the second day, we ate at Wolf Mountain winery. It was beautiful. I recommend eating lunch on the outside balcony. After the winery, we returned to Dick's Creek Fall and spent the afternoon sitting on the rocks and walking down the creek.
For our last day, we rented kayaks from Chestatee River adventures. I highly recommend this kayak trip. (We also went to Dick's Creek again, so you could say we like that hidden spot).
On our way out of Dahlonega, we made a quick stop at Montaluce winery. This winery is also beautiful with great views and architecture.
I highly recommend staying at the Treehouse if you're looking for a homey spot located in a beautiful area with great view of the mountains.
The treehouse was perfect for me and my two friends for a girls overnight winery trip! Everything was exactly as described, easily accessible and the cabin contained everything we needed.
This is a beautiful property. The treehouse was just perfect and we loved it! Great amenities and Ms. Judy was very helpful and kind. Would recommend this property to anyone!
Winery's are good but nothing like California. In California the tastings are little or no cost if you buy wine. Unfortunately in North Georgia they want to make their money on the tastings.
Of the winery's we visited . Kaya and Cavender Creek were the best.
We will be back. Looks like our next trip will involve kayaking as well.
Dahlonega is the gateway to the North Georgia mountains, and a playground for hikers, bicyclists and motor bikers.
Dick's Creek, Cooper's Creek, Woody Gap and Lake Winfield Scott and Lake Vogel are nearby for swimming and some of the best trout fishing in the country.
Visit the many waterfalls in the area, and don't miss hiking DeSoto Falls, a friendly hike with two waterfalls.
Enjoy touring the 6 wineries surrounding us for tastings or dining with fantastic mountain views.
Rafting, kayaking and tubing is available on the rivers around Dahlonega, and you might decide to pan for gold or tour the gold mines.
Antique shops and restaurants are plentiful in downtown Dahlonega, as well as art galleries, specialty shops, tasting rooms and the Gold Museum. The first Dress Up and J.R. Crider's was established here, and are a must stop for the younger crowd. If you are having "withdrawal" from the city, there is a Starbuck's about a block off the square. On the first Friday of the month Hancock Park has live music, just behind the square. A "mini Chastain", if you will.
Don't miss Wolf Mountain Vineyard for brunch, lunch or a glass of wine. Make reservations before you come, they fill up fast. Montaluce is a great dinner spot, if you want to get to another winery. Three Sisters, Frogtown and Cavendar Creek are also not to be missed. Frogtown has special dinner and brunch events throughout the year that are wonderful, with more beautiful views.
Some of our favorite dining spots in Dahlonega, on or just off the square, are the Oyster Bar-seafood and good oysters, Shenanigan's, all around menu, just great food and an outdoor deck with music, and it is pet friendly. Bourbon Street is Cajun style, with a porch overlooking the square and another pet friendly back deck. Want a good margarita and Mexican-go to Pueblo's, without a reservation you will probably have to wait. Gold City has good barbecue, done on the Green Egg. Connie's Ice Cream shop wins "Best sandwich in Dahlonega" every year. Gustavo's has great salads and garlic cheese rolls. Of course they have pizza, Stromboli, pasta, etc. Crimson Moon is where you want to go for live entertainment. The entertainers change nightly. The Picnic Cafe serves light breakfast and lunches with some outdoor seating. Corkscrew Cafe is more fine dining, very good, with indoor and outdoor seating.
A couple of miles from the square you will find Yahoola Grill and Johnny B's, (great wings and sports bar atmosphere). For breakfast you might want to try Foothill's Grill, Hickory Prime or Wagon Wheel.
If you have had a full day and want to come back, relax and enjoy the view, stop by Feast for gourmet to go.
Finally, if traveling with friends, ask me....there are other accommodations nearby and on property.
I've tried to give you a quick overview, but you can also go to the web site for the Dahlonega Chamber of Commerce to get additional information as to dates of specific events.
