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.

19 May
No, we are not talking about jams on toast. We’re talking about old-fashioned music jams on the public square that will get your toes tapping and your fingers snapping.
appjam2015
While Dahlonega is known historically for its gold, it also has a long tradition as a haven for Appalachian music. The recent Bear on the Square Festival highlights this tradition with a weekend of mountain music performances and workshops.
If you visit Dahlonega during the warmer months you might notice musicians with banjos, fiddles, guitars and dulcimers playing mountain music around the historic square.
The Appalachian Jam series started this year on Saturday April 25th and ends October 10th.
The jams happen every Saturday from 2 – 5 PM, rain or shine on the Gold Museum lawn. Look for the white tents or just listen for the music.
If weather requires, the jams will be moved across the street to beneath the covered pavilion on the Dahlonega Visitors Center Plaza.
The series is free so just come and listen/enjoy.
