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 Creek 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.

Fall in the North Georgia mountains is always a beautiful time of year. It’s no wonder that it is also the busiest time of the year for tourism and guests visiting the inn. Around the inn we are seeing color changes. Weather influences when the colors change and the vividness of the colors.
Guests to the area can enjoy viewing the Fall colors from hiking on the Appalachian trail, visiting one of several waterfalls including Amicalola Falls or just sipping wine on one of the decks of the many wineries in the region. One of our favorite viewing areas is Preacher’s Rock which is located on the Appalachian trail near Woody Gap (see our video at Preacher’s Rock).
Come stay with us and enjoy the Fall colors.

HemlockFest, hosted by the Lumpkin Coalition, is an annual festival held the first full weekend in November. The Festival and the proceeds from the festival are used to increase public awareness of Eastern and Carolina hemlock tree problems and to provide financial support for Area Colleges and Universities in their efforts to save the Hemlocks.
This is a worthwhile and entertaining event!
Hemlockfest happens November 7th,8th and 9th east of Dahlonega, Georgia at Starbridge and features many great live music events.
Shenanigans’ and Bourbon Street Grill provide great food while you listen to the live music (our son always helps with the cooking). Terrapin provides the beer (we loved the Wake and Bake they had last year).
Educational exhibits and cool art to purchase (we purchase something every year). Visit the silent auction tent with some great products (we offer a BOGO night for the inn every year).
Multi day and single day tickets are available on the website shown below.
On site festival camping is available if you purchase a 3 day pass or you can stay with us at the inn if we have something available. As of the day of this post (October 8th) we have both yurts and a room available (2 night minimum).
If you care about the environment and like live music this event should be on your list to attend. We try to make it Sunday when our guests check out.
