Break from Holiday Traditions in the North Georgia Mountains

Break from typical holiday traditions by creating sparkling and magical memories in the North Georgia Mountains. Whether Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years Eve, take a trip 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 tootsies in front of the fire, cut down a 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 a 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 a book to read while relaxing is needed, the Coosawattee Library has shelves brimming with selections for every reader.

Take a day to cut a 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, pine-cones, 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 eating 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 Cafe. 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 the choice for a 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 the 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!
