... backpack. The hiker said, "If he wants to come, he has to carry his own food." We sat on a flat rock and ate our lunch.
Our dinner was at Oti Japanese Steak House. We enjoyed the food, and service was good. We had our upside down pineapple pie for dessert when we arrived ...
... Copperhill, TN. These two towns are right next to each other. A blue line goes through the towns to indicate the dividing line. I asked a merchant what town does he consider his store is in, since the blue line goes through his store. On the GA side the river is called Toccoa, on the TN side it is known as Ocoee. We also found out Wednesday is not a good day to visit these ...
... As we hiked into higher elevations, it did become warmer and less windy. There are evergreen trees and trees with no leaves. Sometimes the sun peaked through the clouds. We hiked the Creek Trail, up 175 stairs to the Reflection Pool, and then 425 stairs to the top of the falls. Then, we hiked the Spring Trail. Though it seemed more, we only hiked about 3 miles.
It is another cold day. However, it is now in the low 40's with a 40% chance of rain.
We drove 45 minutes to Dahlonega to see the Dahlonega Gold Museum State Historic Site. It is located on the Public Square of downtown Dahlonega. The entrance fee was $6.50 for the two seniors in our group and $7.50 for Linda and me. We viewed a film about the finding of gold in this area. Anne, the volunteer docent, ...
The day started out in the 50's with constant rain. We went to the Good Samaritan Catholic Church in Ellijay with Father Gregory officiating. After mass, we drove to the Food Lion and purchased over $100 of groceries. Our next stop was the Red Box for Joan who loves movies.
In the afternoon, it was still raining, and we watched ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Forrest Hills Mountain Resort and Conference Center Dahlonega
I visited July 9- 11, 2004 for our 6th year wedding anniversary, and it was a very beautiful place. The food was excellent, the people were very helpful and friendly and I would definitely let my friends and family know how nice this getaway was and would make a
Hated Forest Hills...DIRTY ROOMS!!!!!
My fiance and I stayed at Forest Hills while looking for a place for our wedding. Forest Hills is horrible! We will never return. The cabin was tiny and dirty! There were spider webs, bugs and dirt in the hot tub, and the shower was filthy. The bed sheets smelled old and musty. We complained and they did nothing. The experience was so bad that we left after only one night...we had paid for two nights and this was non-refundable. Don't go to Forest Hills! You would be much better off at the Holiday Inn!
Just spent a bit over a week at Forrest Hills resort as a couple and have mixed feelings about the experience. When we arrived we were informed about several things that may have made us choose another place to stay. No phones in the cabins: this may sound great until you realize that you may be a mile and a half from the lobby/gift shop/dining area and you must go there to find out about operating hours and cannot call to make local reservations or get any other local information. We believe that a primary reason this is so is to ensure that you do activities and spend your money onsite. We were also informed that the common road would be closed when a wedding was taking place. It was June (the national month of weddings), and we had to check daily to see when we would not be able to get to our cabin if we were out or leave if we were in. We asked daily proactively; this information was never volunteered. We were told that it would take an hour and a half for the hot tub to heat each time we wanted to use it. There are no laundry facilities on the property. We were also told that our massages had been scheduled without our imput, and at a higher rate than we had been quoted. The massage issue was corrected within the next couple of days and our credit card was refunded the extra amount.
Excellent women's retreat
The women of my church use Forest Hills for our annual retreat and we love it. The area is gorgeous, the rooms are comfortable (not that we sleep much), and the food is delicious. I would recommend this place to any group looking for a relaxing, accomodating location.
Top $$ rate, no hot water
We stayed Thanksgiving weekend for a family reunion and my niece's wedding. Towels had to be exchanged in the common area. No housekeeping, not bathroom cleaning, bedmaking, certainly not bed change. Only 1 person could get hot water for a VERY quick shower.
Heating unit very noisy, no heat in bathroom. Buffet food-fried, fried, fried.
My wife and I vacationed at Forrest hills resort during June 2003. It was a fantastic experience. We really had a good time. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They will give you all the attention you need but they also give you the privacy you desire while there. Most people visiting there are couples who just want to relax and get away from it all. The gift shop is great and very affordable. We went horse back riding and it was a real adventure. This is a must when vacationing there. You will be in for the ride of your life. The food at the resort is very good. Not a 5 star meal but adequate. Its a buffet, so you get plenty. My suggestions is to eat there but also make your way over to The Oarhouse. Its a 20 minute drive through the the hills but its worth it. Everything is homemade. I also suggest you take a short drive to downtown Dahlonega and check out the shops and winery. Its great and not crowded like anything in Atlanta. Overall, this place is a great place that I highly recommend. We are an African American couple and we felt very welcommed there.
Forest Hills Resorts
Wonderful, Romantic, Serene, Peaceful, Fabulous Food, Fabulous Staff,
Great AtmosphereA lot of places could use this resort as a 'role
model.' The week I stayed here was more than wonderful. You must see
for yourself, no description could ever do this resort any justice.
Wonderful place to 'get-away-from-it-all' and even better to share with
My husband and I honeymooned here in 1995. We had a wonderful time and there was plenty to do both at the resort and nearby. We are thinking about taking a vactaion there again this summer.
I you want a couples hidaway weekend, this is it. Rustic cabins with fireplace, jacuzi, VCR and a efficency kitchen. Meals are served for breakfast and dinner in a couples only dining room within walking distance. You can truly get away in the North Georgia mountains. My wife and I have been going here for weekends since before we were husband and wife. Meals are included in cost. Moderately affordable.
