We have 7 acres of wooded property situated on area of old gold mining property with beautiful stream. 7 miles to Dahlonega, a historic town where gold was found. 19 miles to Helen, GA an Alpine themed village. The Appalachian trail also starts at Amicalola Falls State park about 26 miles from here, it also crosses several roads nearby. Brass Town Bald, highest mountain in GA is a 32 mile nice drive. Lots of waterfalls, Desoto Falls, Anna Ruby, Dukes Creek Falls and many hiking trails nearby. There a 4 winery's within 4 miles of our home. Horseback riding, canoeing and kayaking are available in the area.
Quite time between 10pm and 7am, no children. Inside pets are OK. Our son and his family live on property with a German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois, who is very friendly but is young and inquisitive, he's mostly inside and when he is outside someone is with him, so if you're not comfortable with dogs this would not be a good fit. We live on 7 acres of wooded property out in the country, it gets dark at night with all kinds of wildlife, we have seen bears, snakes, deer and other small animals. Generators allowed only if they are built in or inverter types. We have a firepit and grill available. There are trails and nice creek on our property.
About 1/4 mile on a somewhat narrow paved road to our drive. Our drive is paved back to the house, then gravel around the circle drive that goes around the entire house. When you first come in our drive there is a curve that would make it tricky for anything longer than 25' trailer, could handle a slightly longer single vehicle length up to 25'. Parking for the rv is gravel with a slight slope uphill, will need to backup into the site, a vehicle with camper trailer would benefit having all wheel drive. See photo.
25' max. length on motor-homes, will need to disconnect toad before attempting the drive. 25' max. length on pull behind campers. parking for tow vehicle and toads in same area as the RV.
We had planned on being here for a short time preparing for our next adventure. But I had to have 4 bypass and a heart valve repaired setting us back. Until I get my strength back and can get around we will not be hosting for the next couple weeks.
Gold museum and gold mine tours at local mines, plenty of waterfalls and hiking trails close by.
We had the most wonderful time with GaRoadrunners. They live in a beautiful, peaceful location in the Georgian hills close to the town of Dahlonega and Helen! They went above and beyond to meet our needs and made us feel part of their family! We kept on extending our stay, not because of the Coronovirus but because we didn’t want to leave!
Thank you to you and your family for opening up your home to us, educating us about Dahlonega’s gold history and allowing us to share on your southern country life! Such rich memories that we will cherish forever! We will miss you!
What an incredible Boondockers Welcome place tucked away in the secluded hollows outside of Dahlonega. From here you are close to numerous wineries, the charming town of Dahlonega, places to go and pan for gold, and numerous other attractions. Or, you can bask in the quietness of the forest around your camper. This place is enchanting.
Georgia Roadrunners were a BW guest at our place a couple of years ago. We have become fast friends since that visit, and we have had the opportunity to travel together in Florida and out west. You could not meet anyone finer than these folks. You will delighted in getting a chance to know them.
It was fun being here and being their first official BW guest since they have opened a host site. Of course we highly recommend you stop over if you are passing through this area.
