This vacation rental is a 2BR/2BA (one king and one queen bed – four people max) cottage located in the very unique and special, gated location within sight and sound of the iconic Cane Creek Falls. The Waterfall Cottage 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 (operational October through March) (we supply the initial wood), free WiFi, Smart TV, DVD player & DVDs, land-line phone with unlimited USA long distance (cell service is spotty), and a lower covered deck with porch swing. Breakfast is not provided, but we do provide coffee and all the basic needs for cooking. We provide camp chairs for you to use 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 starting at the property line, 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 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 90 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, 5. smart TV only as cable is not available and too many trees for satellite, 6. the base rate is $309 to $339 / night (seasonal, holiday & festival pricing may vary) with a two night minimum.
In addition, our Waterfall Cottage is located inside the Camp Glisson Retreat Center. Guests at the Waterfall Cottage must follow the rules of Camp Glisson when on their property once you enter the first security gate. There are about 10 private cottages along the creek. Our cottage lot has 60 feet frontage on the creek and is 150 feet deep. The camp owns all the trails and the waterfall and waterfall area. Their rules are posted at the parking area, but include: no firearms can be brought onto the property, no alcohol use on their property, and no smoking. This Methodist camp has about 400 acres and holds summer camps for hundreds of children in June and July as well as weekend retreats throughout the year. Campers in June and July arrive on Sunday afternoons and depart on Friday mornings. The cabins, dining hall and activity areas are quite a ways downstream of the cottage. Campers will be indoors at the Program Center from time to time across the creek from the cottage.
Camp Glisson allows our guests the use of the falls immediate area to only Friday evenings, all day Saturday and Sunday mornings during June and July. Therefore we only take reservations for Friday and Saturday nights during those months. Guests can, of course, always enjoy the shoals of Cane Creek in front of our cottage and the beautiful view of the falls from the cottage and Adirondack chair viewing area.
