Dahlonega Winter 2017

29 Dec

Winter 2017 is here in Dahlonega and the north Georgia mountains. The holidays are over, the crowds of tourists have left, the area is quiet and tranquil and all of our local wineries will be open on the weekends beginning January 16th – all but one will be open the weekend of the 8th.

Three Sisters Winery opens mid-January for weekends; Montaluce is open for tastings everyday all winter long as is FrogtownCavender Creek is open Thursday – Sunday through the winter months; Wolf Mountain’s winter schedule begins January 7th with Friday and Saturday tastings (restaurant reopens 2/11/17); Kaya is serving Wednesday thru Sunday. In White County, but not far away, Yonah Mountain is open seven days a week as is Cottage Winery.  Check their web sites or call them for details.

Take advantage of the quiet season in our area. You can check the weather and make last-minute reservations for dining in town and lodging with us.

The Historic Holly Theater has two special musical performances planned for January 2017:

AIA, winner of the 1992 Margaritaville Records sponsored Jimmy Buffet Sound Alike Contest and the official Jimmy Buffet Tribute band, performs at the Holly on January 14th! The show is composed of Jimmy Buffett’s best songs and promises to be a great evening for all you “parrot heads”.  Check out the pre-concert “tail gate” party on the patio at the Corkscrew Cafe.

Next is the Statler Brothers Tribute on January 28th. Join The River City Boys as they present The Songs of the Statler Brothers – A Tribute to the Statler Brothers 2002 Farewell Concert.

For tickets to the Jimmy Buffet or Statler Brothers tribute shows visit http://www.hollytheater.com or call (706) 864-3759

In the mountains the hiking is beautiful because the mountain vistas open up with the leaves off the trees. You can literally see for miles in many areas along the Appalachian Trail. The temperatures are colder and at times the wind might be brisk so wear appropriate clothing in layers. You might even see snow if you are lucky.

The waterfalls in the area are also special in the winter. Some may be covered in ice depending on the temperatures. Three of our favorite waterfall hikes are Amicalola, Raven Cliff Falls and DeSoto Falls.

Historic Downtown Dahlonega has many unique shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants and art galleries that are open. Some restaurants have live music on weekends and even weekdays.

Also Valentines Day will fall midweek so you have two weekends to choose to celebrate with that special person.

Come stay with us and enjoy the North Georgia mountains in the winter of 2017. Visit our “availability calendar” link on the right to check availability and to make reservations online securely.

We Serve Vortex Structured Water at the Inn

9 Oct

We have always cared about our personal health and the health of the environment. We encourage guests to do the same.

Recently we learned about vortex structured water and the benefits it has on human healthvortexwater and the environment. After extensive research we decided to purchase a vortex water revitalizer (picture at right) to add to our bar sink at the inn. We now make coffee and hot tea with structured water and serve the water to our guests, drink it ourselves throughout the day, and invite guests to fill their water bottles prior to hiking.

You might be wondering what makes this water special.

First let’s discuss ordinary tap water most people have at their sinks. Municipal water supplies have been pumped out of the ground or taken from lakes and streams. It is fluoridated- chlorinated and then sits in miles of pipes waiting for use by the consumer. Some consider it “dead water” since it has lost the characteristics it once had from the spring. Look at water flowing down a mountain stream. The water is cascading over rocks, creating whirlpools and looking alive. Research has shown that such water is alive compared to municipal water.

So what is vortex structured water? It has a different chemical structure than regular municipal water or many bottled waters. Structured water is not H2O but H3O2*. It is the same type of water found in our cells. It is also found in natural spring water. It provides more effective and better hydration when consumed since it penetrates the cells. Dr Gerald Pollack from the University of Washington is world-renowned in water research and has thoroughly researched structured water and endorses its health benefits.

Structured water has also been shown to help plant growth as well. Farming and vineyard operations have used large water vortexing units for irrigation and have found that plants need less water during drought and have better developed root systems. We have tried using the water on potted plants with good results.

Many Americans do not drink enough water throughout the day and are dehydrated. Water makes up most of our body composition and is important for good health and longevity. Drinking soft drinks, sports drinks and store-bought bottled water has been shown not to be healthy. Bottled water also creates a lot of plastic waste in packaging which is not good for the environment. We have switched to glass water bottles for our personal use to avoid plastic.

New Corn Maze Opens Near Inn

28 Sep

Just in time for the Fall season we welcome Dahlonega’s first corn maze. It’s located not too far from the inn off Cavender cornmazedahlonegaCreek Road which is also close to several great wineries.

Lee Anderson Farm in Dahlonega, Georgia is the location of the seven-acre corn maze that is designed in shape of an old-time gold miner. “We chose that symbol because Dahlonega is known for kicking off a gold rush in Georgia,” said Danny Otter, general manager of the Lee Anderson Farm Corn Maze.

The Georgia Gold Rush started in 1829 near Dahlonega and soon spread throughout the North Georgia mountains. The Anderson’s have lived on the farm since 1920 and is currently raising their fifth generation on the land.

Open Fridays 4 pm – 10 pm; Saturdays 10 am -10 pm and Sundays 1 pm – 6 pm every weekend now through November 6.

Located at 51 Lee Anderson Farm Road, just off Cavender Creek Road. Plenty of free parking.

Admission ranges from $5 – $14, depending on what you want to do.
