About Jimmie Walters

Andrew and Jimmie divide their time between Duluth, GA, Augusta, and their hideaway in Dahlonega. They are blessed with 2 beautiful daughters and their families, including 4 grandchildren. Originally purchased as a family getaway, Frog Call has been evolving for over 15 years, with the dream of sharing this peaceful, nurturing place come true, like pieces of a puzzle fitting together.

Jimmie Walters purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Jimmie Walters chose North Georgia Mountains

The search for a mountain getaway spanned 2 years. Starting off on a personal tour with the Chapman family owners, by the time they forded West Cane Creek in the old jeep, Jimmie had tears in her eyes, and the search was over. The 50 plus acres of lush forest, meadows, streams, the trails, the end of road privacy and bordered by national forest, all creating peaceful seclusion from the outside world. And located just over one hour from Atlanta, and 6 miles from the Square.

What makes this cabin unique

The Cherokee Indians chose the Dahlonega area to settle for good reason. Starting with that wonderful slice of land, and an old caretakers' cottage given new life, the cozy living quarters have cautiously been expanded, allowing nature in, with a minimum of disturbance to the beautiful, natural surroundings, adding the breathtaking treehouse with queen size bed and 30 ft. bridge, and bunkhouse with hand crafted bunk beds. Organic gardens thrive in the meadow, by the pond.

In every instance the right people have shown up, bringing their gifts to take it to the next level of development. Whether it was funds needed, ideas for sharing, treehouse visions, an amazingly talented architect and team, an organic farming family, a nature loving landscape company, an out of work builder, flower garden gifts, or a husband who knew how to build ponds, what has been created is a totally unique, soul reviving escape. Add to that local individuals who can create a personalized experience for you with their talents and knowledge of the area.

What a joyous retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife, two daughters (9) and (12) to Frog Call in early April for Spring Break on a last minute audible. Jimmie stepped up and got us booked in at the last minute and the property was in great shape at our arrival. We passed through the gate, shut it behind us and were all alone for five glorious days. The house is well-furnished and appointed. The heated floors in the master bath and dining room were a treat. The beds were very comfortable and the linens of high quality.

We all caught a fat rainbow trout in under ten seconds (not sure they had seen much activity for a while). We canoed around the pond, fished, swam (briefly...brrr!), counted tadpoles, chased turkeys, tested the echos and laid on our backs in the field watching the clouds and sky roll by. We took golf cart expeditions on the paths. We went for long walks together and alone. We did not sleep in either the bunk house or tree house but we visited them daily. We panned for "placer nuggets" and while we didnt strike it rich we did have a hilarious time.

The house is very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. There is little to no cell service, but the wifi works well and I was able to check in at work when I felt like it, which was rarely.

I highly recommend this place and hope to come back with some friends. We also visited the Consolidated Gold Mine which was a neat experience, but not for the claustrophobic. Thanks Frog Call!

best most peaceful ever

  • 5 of 5

This was the most positive experience ever. Owners are absolutely wonderful people. I really needed to get away from it all. There was just peace and serenity here all around you.. A treehouse in the woods with a heart shaped rock to greet you. A bunk house also in the woods with the most beautiful wood carving I have ever seen.

Yes there is also the main cabin with all the modern amenities. Although we spent little time there. The back screened in porch was our spot when we weren't out exploring in the woods- was a golfcart that was the first time in years my friend who is physically unable to walk very well or far to enjoy it all with me. We have been friends for about 49 years and have done and explored a lot together so this was like old times!

Just the perfect place in all ways.

I was asked by the owners to feed the fish in the pond for the week. I think they grew 2 inches while we were there. The frogs had strings and strings of frog eggs in the pond. They hatched out early in the week and were swimming around by the time we left. Wish we had been able to watch as they got legs and swam away.But after all we did have to return to reality. But it was with more clarity of thought.

Can't wait to return

Thank you sooooooooooo much Jimmie and Andy.

Fun & Relaxing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Frog Call! We loved exploring around the property. The treehouse and bunkhouse are super cute, but we had plenty of room in the cabin for everyone to have plenty of room. Wish we could've stayed longer. Thanks for letting us enjoy your cabin!! Dahlonega is a fun weekend getaway.

An Incredible Place!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how fantastic our stay at Frog Call was. We were in eager anticipation of a beautiful place thanks to the many photos listed, but none of them did justice to the peace and beauty that exist at Frog Call! It's convenient to town but feels like the wilderness! With excellent weather, we spent most of our time on the very large and comfortable screen porch, or down by the pond with a fire almost every night. The sounds of the frogs, birds and other wildlife are deafening in the evening and early morning. We saw lots of deer in the fields and the fishing in the trout pond was phenomenal! The kitchen is well equipped, with newer appliances that worked perfectly. The beds were incredibly comfortable, even in the treehouse where some of our friends and their kids stayed the night. No TV, but a good wifi signal if you simply must stay connected. Jimmie thinks of everything and her love of this place and sharing it with others really shows. We will make Frog Call a yearly destination in the fall for sure!!!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

It's impossible to choose my favorite thing about Frog Call! The pictures on this site give you an idea of what to expect, but you really need to see it in person to appreciate how awesome it is. The natural beauty and the perfectly appointed home combine to make Frog Call an absolutely amazing getaway. My husband and I brought our two big dogs, and they had an absolute ball exploring the trails and playing in the creek. (There's a water hose and clothesline handy for clean up before letting them back in the house). The house really feels like a home, and it was spotlessly clean. The screened porch that runs the length of the house overlooks the pond, and it is a perfect place to while away the evening watching fireflies and listening to the frogs call! Besides the porch, there is a dining room and living room well set up for intimate conversations and groups of various sizes, with books, games, and puzzles to enjoy. The master bathroom with walk-in shower and large tub is simply to die for. Jimmie was extremely warm and friendly; she made us feel so welcome. She encouraged us to help ourselves to fresh vegetables from the organic garden and I swear those heirloom tomatoes are some of the best I've ever had! We want to come back with our family in the fall to experience the changing colors of the leaves and have a chance to sleep in the bunkhouse or the treehouse!

Wedding April 2009

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Jimmie for helping us make my daughters wedding perfect. I realized all the extra steps (flowers decorations in the house)you went through to make sure her day was memorable. The whole experience was very stress free. The grounds, waterfalls, the porch, house and its décor made it very relaxing. The tree house was a great escape for the bride and groom. There was plenty of room for others to stay overnight also. My daughter said she wanted to come back to Frog Call each year around her anniversary. An extra thank you to Jimmie for giving us suggestions on were to set up and what had work out in the past (We did not hirer a wedding planner but Jimmie had lot of ideas and plenty of resources that we could call if we wanted something extra). Everyone that came to the wedding was so impressed by Frog Call and its beauty.
