Spring Getaway in the North Georgia Mountains

Spring is just around the corner. Yeah, yeah… I know what you are thinking, “How can I think of spring when I am chilled to the bone in the middle of winter!?!” Well, spring IS just around the corner, and NOW is the time to make your reservations in the North Georgia Mountains for the most spectacular, colorful, and rejuvenating get-away.

Every spring around March, the North Georgia Mountains start to turn out some of the most vivid and assorted forest wildflower displays anywhere! Along the mountain streams, roadsides, trails, rocks, and peaks, thousands of wildflowers make a collage of pastel and brilliant colors. Note that the earliest blooms begin at the lower elevations and progress during the season to the higher elevations. The stunning flowering rhododendrons are particularly magnificent and a major spring attraction.

So where exactly should you go to enjoy these stunning and magnificent spring sights? Drive through the Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay, Georgia to take in all the beautiful spring foliage and wildlife. The Coosawattee River Resort features hundreds of miles of driving adventure all within the gated resort. Drive up to the top of the highest points of the resort take in the breathtaking sights. Or perhaps exploring the rivers and streams throughout the property is more your style. The resort features six riverside parks with picnic tables, charcoal grills, fire-rings / pits, and restrooms. What a wonderful opportunity for some picture taking, picnicking, and spring kite flying!

Well, you ponder, how exactly can one get into this gated resort? Stay at The Villas at The Coosawattee River Resort and have the accessibility of all the resort’s features at your fingertips. The Villas offers a variety of accommodations (cabins, villas, A-frames, condo units) in the most impressive locations in the resort. Mountain and river side views present picturesque outlooks for soaking up all the spring sights and sounds. Throughout the property, abundant amenities are easily accessible, ranging from exercise & weight room, game rooms, indoor (open year round) & outdoor (open Memorial Day to Labor Day) swimming pools, kayaking & tubing, camp sites, river parks, miniature golf, horseshoe pits, tennis courts, and basketball courts.

Also, location within the resort is of great importance: (1) If Blue Ridge mountain views are your interest, stay at the Water Tower or Recreation Center Villas. Viewing the spring blossoms is perfect from these villas. (2) If your agenda calls for spring water sports, fishing, or relaxing by the rippling river, A-frames, Condos, or Canoe Park Villas are your choice. (3) Young families, exercise enthusiasts, and pool goers are within walking distance of the Recreation Center by renting the Recreation Center Villas. (4) If you want to see local and nearby attractions in addition to enjoying the spring attraction inside the resort, staying in the Water Tower, A-frames, or Condos is the best bet as each is minutes from the gate and major highways.

Are you ready to kick up your feet next to a fireplace at night, warm your face in the spring sunshine during the day, and rejuvenate your spirit? The Villas are only a short drive from Atlanta and have all the wonderful features of the surrounding East Ellijay: golfing, wine tasting, horseback riding, antique shops, and so much more!
