Visit Blue Ridge Near Our North Georgia Mountain Property for Sale

We take a lot of trips around our North Georgia mountain property for sale, and Blue Ridge is one of our favorite mountain towns that we keep going back to again and again.

Blue Ridge is a quaint mountain town with charming shops and restaurants and also with a collection of art galleries and antiques. We like to walk around downtown, grab a bite to eat, and pick out some goodies at Mercier Orchards, which has the best locally grown fruit selection and delicious baked goods. The farmer’s market is open every Saturday in City Park and is always a pleasure to stroll through. In the evenings we like to go to the drive-in at Blue Ridge, one of the last ones in the whole state.

With a property in the North Georgia mountains, you’ll no doubt be stopping by Blue Ridge on a regular basis. Why wait? When you come visit our mountain property for sale, which we can show you at any time, head to Downtown Blue Ridge and see for yourself how charming this city really is.

North Georgia College Near Our Mountain Property for Sale

I consider myself a lifelong learner, and one of the best parts of our North Georgia mountain property for sale is our proximity to North Georgia College and State University, which allows me to pursue my interests and expand my knowledge in a variety of areas.

I consider myself pretty lucky to have our North Georgia property for sale located so closely to a college that offers so many continuing education courses. Their huge number of courses will especially appeal to those of you with a creative bent–they’ve got pottery making classes, for example–but they also have very stimulating courses in unexpected subjects such as transforming your home into a “green” home.

They’ve got their catalogue online and I highly suggest you look through it to see if they’ve got anything to offer you. They’ve also got a lot more to offer than continuing education such as children’s summer camps, for example.

When you come by our North Georgia mountain property, which we can show you at any time, you should also swing by the campus and take a tour.

Chattahoochee National Forest near Our Georgia Mountain Property for Sale

One of the biggest treats of having a property in the North Georgia mountains is our proximity to the Chattahoochee National Forest. What a treat for outdoors enthusiasts!

Chattahoochee is the largest National Forest in Georgia and also features the starting point for the mighty 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail.

My favorite part of the park is the Chattahoochee River, 48 miles long. I like to take the boat on it. Also, kayaking the Class 2 rapids can be pretty exciting. (Most of the time the Chattahoochee flows at a slow pace.) Other activities include mountain biking and horseback riding on designated trails.

If you like the outdoors, you’ll love having a North Georgia mountain property located so closely to this large, beautiful forest. When you come see our Georgia mountain property for sale, which you can do so at anytime, you must pay a visit to Chattahoochee National Forest!

Does It Snow Near Our North Georgia Property for Sale?

When we’re showing our North Georgia mountain property for sale, we get a lot of questions. One of the most popular ones is “Does it snow here?”

North Georgia does get several snowfalls in the winter, but they don’t last very long. Blizzards are very rare, with the last one being in 1993. It sure gets cold though with freezing temperatures at night and near-freezing temperatures during the day in the wintertime. I like the cold weather minus the snow because it gives things a Christmasy air without the pain of having to drive in the snow or shoveling the driveway! Of course, there’s nothing like waking up to a blanket of snow over your property.

If you come visit our North Georgia property for sale during the winter, bring plenty of warm clothes and some snow boots just in case. You never know if it could snow on your visit. Just don’t expect a blizzard!

Our Georgia mountain property is available to be shown at any time:

North Georgia Canopy Tours Near Our Georgia Mountain Property for Sale

 

So here’s a new one for me: North Georgia Canopy Tours, located near our Georgia mountain property. I haven’t had the chance to go yet, but I’m planning on it. Perhaps you might like to check it out too.

So what is a canopy tour exactly? You may be familiar with the “zipline,” a cable that you can ride at a decline, propelled through an area with the force of gravity. Some ziplines are incredibly long and are used for outdoor tours of remote areas. I’ve been on ziplines in the rainforest and Alaska, and it was quite an experience!

With your interest in our Georgia mountain property for sale, you’re probably already familiar with the stunning beauty of the North Georgia mountains. What a fun way to see the scenery—zipping along on an adventure tour. I’m really looking forward to this, and I bet you’ll like it too. North Georgia Canopy Tours is the company I’m interested in using for this tour. They are located just an hour outside of Atlanta, so I won’t have to travel very far.

 

Come check out our mountain property for sale, which is available to be shown at your convenience, anytime, and why not get a zipline tour while you’re in the area too?

The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway near Our Georgia Mountain Property for Sale

When you come see our North Georgia property for sale, which is available to be shown at any time, you don’t want to miss a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway, especially if you have little ones.

If you have little ones in your family, they’ll sure get a kick out of the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. But even if you don’t have any kiddies, I recommend you check out this beautiful ride which adults love too.

The ride goes along the gorgeous Toccoa River from Blue Ridge to McCaysville. Every season offers a different experience. I prefer to ride the railway in the fall when the foliage is fiery-red and orange-colored. The trip is three and a half hours with a layover of an hour and a half for you to explore downtown McCaysville. The train is open from March through December and the schedule varies, so call ahead before you head down to Blue Ridge.

Make sure to take a ride on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway when you schedule your appointment to see our Georgia mountain property for sale.

Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia near Our Mountain Property for Sale

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Seven Wonders of the World. Did you know that there are the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia, located near our North Georgia mountain property for sale? That’s right, the most gorgeous or unusual natural formations, most of which are millions of years old, are available for you to see within driving distance of our mountain property for sale.

The list was first compiled by the state librarian, Ella May Thornton, and it’s changed over time.  It now includes Amicalola Falls, Okefenokee Swamp, Providence Canyon, Stone Mountain, Tallulah Gorge, and Warm Springs. I’ve had the opportunity to see most of them and they’re pretty spectacular.

My favorites? It’s hard to choose.  Amicalola Falls near Dawsonville, the highest waterfalls in the state, is beautiful. You can approach the falls with an 8-mile hiking trail near the Appalachian Trail. Stone Mountain is the #1 attraction in Georgia, and no wonder! I also enjoy Warm Springs, which is supposed to have healing waters at a temperature year-round of 88 degrees.

When you come visit our North Georgia mountain property for sale, which you can see anytime, make some time to visit one of the state’s natural wonders. You’ll be glad you did.

Wine Lovers around Our Georgia Mountain Property, Rejoice!

If you’re a wine lover like myself or enjoy visiting wineries, boy are you in for a treat near our North Georgia mountain property for sale! I have never lived in such close proximity to so many top-notch wineries since we’ve had our Georgia mountain property.

The wine tourism industry in Georgia is growing more and more these days, and I’ve been an active part of it! Did you know there are more than 30 bonded wineries in Georgia? We have only visited about half of them and look forward to seeing more.

I highly recommend a newly published book calledGeorgia’s Wineries & Vineyards – A Wine Lover’s Guide by Warren R. Johnson, which tells you everything you need to know about Georgia’s wineries, dividing them up by geographic location and containing maps and directions. It’s perfect to bring along with you in the car. Before I read it, I had to depend on the internet and print up all the information myself. Not anymore!

When you come visit our North Georgia mountain property for sale, available for you to see at anytime, make sure to ask me for my wintery recommendations. I have plenty to give!

Kangaroos near Our North Georgia Property for Sale?

    Who would’ve thought that just a short car trip away from our North Georgia property for sale that there would be the biggest collection of kangaroos next to Australia? When I first heard about the Kangaroo Conservation Center in Dahlonega, I couldn’t believe it. I knew I had to check this place out.

The wildlife center is an 87-acre park which had nine different kangaroo species at the time of my visit, not to mention a butterfly garden too. We took a guided tour and I couldn’t believe how many kangaroos we spotted! Right here in the States, too. It was remarkable.

The center is well-known and has been featured on TV and magazines. Why is it in North Georgia of all places? I wondered. One of the founders was well-acquainted with the area, the temperate and tropical Southern climate is ideal for kangaroos, and the proximity to the Atlanta International Airport allows for the convenient transport of animals.

Adults and kids will both love the Kangaroo Conservation Center. Hours and tour schedule vary, so call ahead before making the trip. When you come see our North Georgia mountain property for sale, available to be shown at anytime, hopefully the park will be open for you to visit.

Holidays at Brasstown Valley Resort near our Georgia Mountain Property

 I’ve written quite a bit about Brasstown Valley Resort, located near our North Georgia property for sale. If you’re like me and love to golf, it’s definitely a highlight of having Georgia mountain property to be so closely located to such a fantastic golf resort.

Well, I’m going to write about it again because with the changing of the seasons and the holidays just around the corner, I’ll be heading to Brasstown soon to enjoy its fall foliage, and perhaps later this year for Christmas or New Year’s.

The fall foliage around our mountain property for sale is stunning, especially near the end of October. I like to take a trip to Brasstown anyway to take in the striking, varied palate of colors while enjoying my favorite sport.

After Thanksgiving, you can take your family to Brasstown for special Christmas and New Year activities. While you golf, your family can enjoy elegant food, horseback riding, crafts, nature hikes, and holiday-themed activities.

If you want to get away from your Georgia mountain property for the holidays, without travelling too far, I highly recommend Brasstown Valley Resort. When you come see our North Georgia mountain property for sale, which is available to be shown at any time, check out Brasstown while you’re at it.
