- Things to Do
Our newest vacation rental is a 2BR/2BA cottage located in the very unique and special location in sight and sound of the iconic Cane Creek Falls. Inside the several hundred acre Glisson Camp and Retreat Center (United Methodist Church owned) there is a small enclave of privately owned cottages, which are accessible at all times. Ours is the second one downstream of the falls. A large screened porch with dining table and comfortable seating area and other viewing areas will give you the sense of really being with nature as the cottage is about fifty feet from Cane Creek. Lots on either side are vacant. It has two bedrooms with one king and one queen bed and two full baths, wood-burning fireplace & we supply the initial wood, free WiFi, Smart TV, DVD player & DVDs, land-line phone with unlimited USA long distance (cell service is spotty), lower covered deck with porch swing. Breakfast is not provided, but we do provide coffee and all the basic needs for cooking. There is no dishwasher or laundry facilities. We provide camp chairs for you to take to sit by the falls. Cane Creek is a designated trout stream now open year-round, and you must have a valid license to fish. We use the Waterfall Cottage as our own get-away when not rented and thoroughly enjoy spending time there. There are hiking trails all around the camp and you can also check out www.hikedahlonega.com . The falls area is rich in history as a Native American gathering place with netting holes and petroglyphs etched in the rocks by the falls. It is also the site of a very early large water wheel electric generating plant. Much of the time you will find the cottage to be a very quiet and peaceful get-away. The camp does have retreats many weekends, but the main buildings and their cabins are not located near our cottage with the exception of the Program Center, which was designed after the gold mining structures of Dahlonega’s history.
It is about 5 minutes from the Dahlonega Square.
Some things for you to consider before renting this very special cottage: 1. Strictly limited to four people maximum including children, 2. absolutely no pets, 3. absolutely no smoking anywhere either inside the cottage or outside as the camp is tobacco free, 4. the parking area is about 100 yards from the cottage – you park and then walk toward the falls and then across the foot bridge in front of the falls and then up a path (we have a wagon and will help with your bags), 5. smart TV only as cable is not available and too many trees for satellite, 6. the rate is $279 / night with a two night minimum. There is no cleaning fee.
