- Things to Do
We love to entertain and our house has always been the party house. We are very active in community theatre – at the Historic Holly Theater in Dahlonega. Tim is a writer, song-writer, musician, director and actor, and Dianne has been on stage, but very involved with the theater’s productions. We both have played in bands.
We love to travel and have visited all fifty states, most of Europe plus Japan and Korea. Staying in a unique B&B or quaint inn has been a special delight for us.
We love the Adirondack Mountains. The decor, style and history have always had an appeal and led us to be a major partner in the Great Camp: White Pine Camp near Saranac Lake, NY. (see www.whitepinecamp.com)
We love the challenge of being in our own business and controlling our destiny. We have owned quite a few: restaurants, antique shops, rare book stores and a bakery.
So, it was a natural progression for us to build Long Mountain Lodge in 2006, add the Tree Top Room in our Owner’s Lodge in 2013, and finally add our Waterfall Cottage at Cane Creek Falls in to Long Mountain Lodge LLC’s offerings for get-a ways and great vacations.
We combined all the amenities and attributes we liked and appreciated in the places we have visited in the construction of the Main Lodge and decor and restoration of the cottage.
So, now we have a variety of accommodations to suit guests who want a special experience. Developing a B & B with rave reviews has been very gratifying. Our family, grown children now, have always been a part of our business ventures and we are pleased that they are involved in the operation of Long Mountain Lodge. Currently, our son-in-law, Don McElliott is the Innkeeper. Both of our daughters are involved as fill-in innkeepers when not teaching. And now two of our local grandchildren Mitchell and Maddie are of age and will be earning college money by working at the lodge. The Cabin on Long Mountain has become a favorite family getaway. The Tree Top Room offers another unique stay experience. And, the Waterfall Cottage has an incredible location.
We have met the most wonderful people from around the world and look forward to meeting – and entertaining many more.
