 Start 2013 off with a bang for your buck. Real estate investments in the North Georgia Mountains are at a discount. Land ranges from RV lots to residential lots with acreage.

The beginning of a new year is approaching. Start the year out right with a real estate investment in the North Georgia Mountains. Now is a perfect time to invest in a piece of nature. The Coosawattee River Resort is offering mountain lots, spectacular mountain and river views. The time is now to grab your piece of mountain real estate!

The Georgia mountain resort is located in Gilmer County just over 75 miles north of Atlanta in the Blue Ridge Mountains and at the foothills of the legendary Appalachian Mountain Range. The resort is a 5,500 + acre development consisting of more than 7,000 individual, privately owned lots divided by seven miles of the beautiful Coosawattee River. The Coosawattee is formed where the Ellijay and Cartecay river meet and then travels for six or seven miles where it becomes Carter's Lake, a gorgeous recreational lake formed by the Corps of Engineers.

The resort is expansive with approximately 160 miles of roads, six river parks, The Water Tower Conference Center, The Recreation Center and The Villas at Coosawattee.

Holidays 2012 Over the River and Through the Woods

Cozy-up in a rustic North Georgia Mountain cabin and create some magical holiday memories. Whether Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years, create some extraordinary holiday traditions by heading up to The Villas at Coosawattee. Toast your tootsies in front of the fire, cut down your own Christmas tree, kick back in a relaxing hot tub, sip hot chocolate on a scenic cabin deck, or take a wintry walk through the woods. Make The Villas at Coosawattee your home away from home this holiday season.  

The Villas at the Coosawattee River Resort offers cabins and villas starting as low as $85 per night tucked away in the mountains in all of the most scenic locations of the resort. The accommodations feature full kitchens which are perfect for any kind of holiday feast, and the area offers many eateries, activities, and must see locations.

The Villas’ Recreation Center, six river parks, and Coosawattee Library give guests plenty to enjoy and explore. The Recreation Center features an indoor heated pool, fitness facility, miniature golf, tennis courts, and more. The six river parks have varying features such as fishing, play-grounds, and fire rings perfect for s’mores! Don’t forget your graham crackers, chocolate bars, and marshmallows. If you need a book to read while relaxing, the Coosawattee Library may have just what you are looking for.  

Take a day to cut your own Christmas tree at one of the many Christmas tree farms in the North Georgia Mountains such as Lowery’s Tree Farm, Whisenant Mountain Farm, and Jones Tree Farm. Or take a wintry walk around The Villas at Coosawattee's grounds and collect decorations for your tree and cabin. Greenery, pinecones, and other treasures can be transformed into a truly delightful holiday setting. The event offers a delightful experience for one and all, and starts the holiday season off with a time to remember!

Another change in tradition is going beyond the bird. Spending the holidays away from home doesn’t mean that you are obligated to eat at a hotel buffet. Use the accommodation’s full kitchen to take a break from traditional menus. Spice up Thanksgiving with pot roast, Cornish hen or ham instead of turkey. The Villas features all of the necessary dishes and kitchen equipment, but you may want to bring a roasting pan for the turkey and baking sheets for that special holiday baked treats.

Maybe forgoing all the fuss of holiday cooking is more appealing. Well, several fantastic options are available. Have gourmet dining in your resort lodging by contacting Cabin Cuisine. Let Cabin Cuisine prepare an exquisite meal—which allows everyone to be free of cooking and cleaning and to enjoy the memorable time in the mountains.  Another option is to pick-up your feast from one of the many restaurants in the Ellijay and East Ellijay areas, such as Charlie’s Italian Restaurant, Davis House Restaurant, Cantaberry Restaurant, or Corner Stone CafĂ©. Give the place a call well ahead of time to establish operating hours and menu items. And last, bring your feast with you and store in your accommodations refrigerator until the big day. What a treat just to reheat! 

Whatever your choice for the holiday feast, one thing is for sure—a holiday in the mountains can’t be beat. The air smells fresher, the sky looks bluer, the trees are more beautiful, and the birds sing a little sweeter. Make your holidays not only fun and magical ... make them also relaxing. Have family and friends meet at The Villas at Coosawattee and let those good times roll. A good old fashion holiday is right there, over the river and through the woods! 

The Villas at Coosawattee River Resort is the premier destination for resort lodging in the Blue Ridge Mountains, featuring cabins, villas, and Jacuzzi villas.
