About Blue Ridge, Georgia

 Georgia's favorite mountain town is 90 miles north of Atlanta via

I-575, but a million miles away from the city. 

Winter, summer, spring and fall, Georgia’s Blue Ridge is simply beautiful. Winter is cool and quiet with occasional snow. Spring is best for trout fishing, wildflowers, blooming dogwoods and native azaleas. Summer brings a profusion of mountain laurel and rhododendron blossoms, along with warmer water for tubing & rafting. Blue Ridge is the perfect place to celebrate the harvest and the colors of fall, or to enjoy the holidays with family and friends. You may never want to leave the cabins porch, but don't miss out on the fun of exploring Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains.
