Adventure Begins At A Cabin In Georgia

Summer has arrived and it’s time to get away from home and have some fun! Most of us have experienced the standard “hotel and theme park” family trip, but why not try something new this year? If you are seeking a vacation with a spark of adventure, look no further than northern Georgia!

When you stay in one of the luxury cabins in Georgia, you will enjoy new experiences and thrills each day, without going too far outside of your comfort zone. Surrounded by nature, wildlife, and breathtaking mountain scenery, every moment has the potential for adventure.

At the same time, your cabin stay will provide all the creature comforts you require, and you won’t be too far from towns like Helen, where you can spend a more low-key afternoon after a morning of excitement. Whether your family is made up of adrenaline junkies or if this is your first truly “adventurous” vacation, you are sure to find activities to enjoy and remember for a lifetime.

Splish Splash!

When you vacation in a cabin in Georgia, you will be up close and personal with the Chattahoochee River, more affectionately referred to as “the ‘Hooch”. The river alone offers a wide variety of fun and exciting adventures that you just wouldn’t have back at home. Regardless of how high you want to go on the “thrill-o-meter”, you’ll find something to love about the good ol’ Hooch.
