Father's Day Gift Ideas for Dad

Father's Day gift-shoppers are urged to step away from that necktie and select a distinctive testosterone-fueled gift for your father: a relaxing, invigorating, and custom-made getaway in the Coosawattee River Resort. Whether Dad prefers to tube or kayak in down the river, cast a fishing line into the fishing pond, hike through the wooded mountains, have some recreational fun, or all of the above, The Villas at Coosawattee has a gift combination designed to get Dad’s sense of adventure revved-up.

Nothing says "Blue Ridge Mountains" like a cabin or villa in the mountains by the river. Although Dad and his entourage will have all the conveniences of home - plus a few unexpected luxuries – The Villas vacation rentals give the look and feel of being off in the vast wilderness. Scenic surroundings, mountain views and native wildlife are just some of what Dad can expect to see.:

1. After checking into his cabin, Dad and gang can head off to the Eagle Mountain General Store outside of the Eagle Mountain Gate for a fun-filled 2-1/2 hour inner tube float down the Coosawattee River. Floating down the river is a great way to reduce stress and enjoy the peace and serenity of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Or if kayaking is more his style, Dad can reserve a kayaking trip that lasts 1-1/2 hours and includes equipment and shuttle to and from the river. Also located at The General Store is the Monster Water Slide, which is the worlds tallest inflatable water slide. We dare you not to scream!

2. If Dad is more traditional, a day of kicked-back fishing might be his style. Nothing could be better than a relaxing day on the water surrounded by all of the peace and tranquility of nature. The sun on his shoulders, it's a Dad's dream come true! The Fishing Pond is full stocked and free of charge—you don’t even need a fishing license!

3. How about starting a Father’s Day tradition of an annual hike? Breakfast in bed and the traditional giving of the gifts are Dad pleasers-- but maybe what he REALLY wants is a little quality time out on the trail. Throw in a waterfall, a wildflower or two, and you'll make his day! The Blue Ridge Mountains are the perfect spot to start your Father’s Day tradition. Make sure to take some pictures to commemorate the occasion and add to the Father’s Day Hike photos through the years.

4. Maybe Dad wants more of a ‘spa day’ filled with a dip in a heated pool, working-out his muscles, and some recreational sports. The Villa’s has just that for him! He can enjoy the heated Junior Olympic-sized pool and the Fitness Center which is complete with treadmills, weight machines, free weights, rowing machine, and exercise bikes. He and his entourage can challenge themselves in the Game Room with arcade games, pool tables, ping pong table, and an air hockey machine. The Recreation Center features tennis courts, 18-hole miniature golf course, and a basketball court.

So how about that gift!? Picture Dad and his entourage nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in a cabin or villa at a resort for a weekend filled with all the things Dad loves—tubing / kayaking down the river, fishing in the pond, hiking thorough the wooded mountains, and having fun at the Recreation Center.
