About Robert Nichols

Robert and I first met on the original LaPrade's resort property in August 1973 at the ages of 23 and 19. Robert's family owned LaPrade's, and Robert was supervisor to the staff, which included myself during summer break between my freshman and sophomore year of college. Quite an impression was made for one another. Thirty-seven years later, our paths crossed, and we met for lunch to 'catch up'. That lunch led to dating, which led to an engagement. which led to marriage in May 2010.

Our family time is something we all treasure! We love the lake, the mountains, snow skiing/snow boarding, tennis, disk golf, picnics, the beach and good music. When together with daughters & sons-in-law, we enjoy hanging out, exploring, watching movies, playing games, preparing delicious family dinners, and all the outdoor activities listed above. Since becoming grandparents in December 2014, we've added new favorites to our family get-togethers!

We know that all good things come from the Lord! Our hearts' desire is to glorify Him in all things!

Thank you for checking out our website.

God's Blessings!

Why Robert Nichols chose Clarkesville

This property has special memories for us. We met on the original LaPrades property in 1973. Robert and his family owned and managed LaPrades for 30 years. Years later, while planning our wedding in 2010, we renovated this home where the LaPrades' head farmer once lived. The Spring Hill Sweets cabin represents new beginnings, unexpected blessings, treasured get-aways, special relationships, and opportunities for building memories!

We look forward to helping you plan an exceptional vacation at the Spring Hill Sweets cabin!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a weekend getaway! The house was beautiful and we walked to the Chophouse both nights for dinner overlooking the water. We brought our boat but you can easily rent one for a great price. Such a great deal for all that you have access to within walking distance!
