Golf, Tubing, Kayaking, Wine Tasting: Celebrate Spring in the North Georgia Mountains!

Spring in the North Georgia Mountains begins early, bringing new life in March and as early as February. Enjoy North Georgia’s exquisite display of dogwoods, azaleas, wildflowers, and mountain laurels as butterflies and hummingbirds visit the colorful and fragrant flowers. Ellijay’s expansive apple orchards are blooming with aromatic and beautiful apple blossoms as the days become warmer and longer. Plan ahead for a full and eventful spring vacation or staycation in the North Georgia Mountains.

Part of this planning should include not only your activities but also where to stay. The Villas at Coosawattee River Resort takes care of both! The Villas offers not only affordable, spacious, and quaint accommodations but also a host of activities right outside your cabin door. Enjoy spring in bloom by driving some of the 300+ miles of roads through the resort. Indulge yourself at the Recreation Center which boasts a Junior Olympic sized heated indoor pool, tennis courts, putt putt golf, a game room, a full fitness facility, and more! Or if you have tweens and teens in your entourage, take a trip to the Teen Center for hours of fun and games. Other points of interest are the six gorgeous parks where visitors can engage in activities ranging from fishing, camping, picnicking and grilling, horseshoes, and so much more.

Golfers have long known that playing golf is an outstanding way to enjoy light exercise while on vacation. Perfect for springtime, a round of golf means a couple of hours spent outdoors with plenty of sunshine and fresh air. If you are one of those folks who dreams of a golfing vacation but hasn’t taken one due to the cost limitations, we can make your dream come true! North Georgia has some of the most scenic golf courses and provides you with a variety of other activities for you and your family. The Villas at Coosawattee offers ideal allowing freedom to golf at courses such as Butternut Creek in Blairsville, Whitepath in Ellijay, or Brasstown Valley.

Want to hear of another fun-tastic activity while vacationing in the North Georgia Mountains? Located just outside one of The Villas at Coosawattee’s gates and starting in May, the Coosawattee River Tubing Company offers tubing and kayaking. A fun-filled 2-1/2 hour inner tube float down the Coosawattee River in the North Georgia Mountains is all yours. Floating down the river is a great way to reduce stress and enjoy the peace and serenity of the mountains. Tubing down the Coosawattee River is whole lot of fun, and The Coosawattee River Tubing Company furnishes the tube, life vest, and shuttle service to and from the river for an admission price.

Spring couldn’t be a more perfect time for a wine tasting excursion. Minutes from The Villas at Coosawattee, Corks and Crumbs in the Ellijay Square offers a wonderful introduction to the Northwest Georgia wine country. This quaint little bakery and bistro with a wine tasting room is located in the middle of the square, perfect for a walk around the fountain and peeking into all the shops. During your wine tasting excursion, Sharp Mountain Vineyards is perfect for a day's outing. Pack a picnic, enjoy a beautiful mountain drive, and take a tour & tasting. Savor your picnic at our Pavilion while drinking in the beautiful view – rows and rows of espaliered vines against a backdrop of blue-green rolling hills and a commanding view of Sharp Mountain herself.

Celebrate spring! Take a vacation or staycation in the blooming mountains of North Georgia. The Villas at Coosawattee River Resort offers affordable and quaint accommodations, activities throughout the resort, superb golf courses nearby, tubing & kayaking on property, and local wine tasting for sweet excursions. Now is the time to plan and to make your reservations! Spring in the mountains can start popping as early as February! Cheers to creating the most colorful spring ever!
