What Kind of Family Vacation to North Georgia Do You Seek?
If fishing is one of your favorite activities, then a relaxing vacation in the beautiful North Georgia mountains should be at the top of your list. This prime destination has an abundance of lakes, rivers, streams, and creeks just brimming with mountain Trout, Walleye, Bluegill, and Bass. Enjoy the cooling sensation as you dip your toes in the waters of the Cartecay or Ellijay Rivers. Let the sounds of these slow-flowing waters soothe your soul as you soak up the sun while casting your line! It’s your time to enjoy the outdoors and catch that prize trophy to brag to your friends about.
What to Do
Did you know Blue Ridge is the trout fishing capital of Georgia? You couldn’t hope for a better spot for your family fishing vacation. Whether you are a professional or a beginner, you’ll find countless fishing spots to enjoy. One of our favorite places to fish is the Toccoa River. Much of it flows through a national forest, so it’s accessible to the public. It’s also an excellent location for fly fishing!
If you want to maximize your experience, we highly recommend hiring a professional guide. Not only will they take you to fabulous spots you may not have found on your own, but they will also give you precious fishing tips for the area. Welch’s Guide Service has impeccable reviews and provides an unforgettable experience for you and your family.
Where to Stay
Morning Breeze Cabin Rentals has a wide variety of fishing-friendly cabins you’ll love. After all, you’re here to fish, so why not do it right from your home away from home? Take a look at Edgewater, Hunter's Lodge, and Stoney River Lodge. These three river cabins have the glistening waters of the Coosawattee right in your backyard, so close you can almost cast your line from the back deck! Have your family reunion there, and spend quality time by the water.
If you need to get away in nature every once in a while to breathe and regroup, then a hiking family vacation is what you need! North Georgia’s main attraction is its stunning range of mountains, and naturally, its various hiking trails. Pack up your favorite pair of boots and get ready to explore the outdoors like never before.
What to Do
Is there anything more fun than adventuring in the wild with your little ones or significant other? In the Mountains of North Georgia, you’ll find various trails that match your skill level. If you are with a group of hiking enthusiasts with advanced experience, why not tackle part of the famous Appalachian Trail? It’s the longest trail in the world, and trekking parts can make for an extraordinary day adventure. You can also do some short jaunts on the Benton MacKaye Trail, the largest feeder to the Appalachian Trail. There are 17 miles of marked trails that stretch throughout the entire Cherry Lodge and Blue Ridge area. Excellent for all levels, and several of our cabins, including Morningstar on the Lake, Indian Rock Retreat, and Lofty Vista, have Benton MacKaye Trail markers right outside their door. If you're extremely ambitious, check out Springer Mountains, the official start of the Appalachian Trail, and spend the entire day or weekend hiking this incredible trail.
Where to Stay

Imagine yourself sipping on your morning cup of coffee while the kids are asleep and gazing at the misty mountain tops on the horizon.
