About the property

3 Br 2.5 Ba Located On 38 Acres Near Wineries And Dahlonega

The Swag House is nestled in a “swag” between the hills just 5 miles north of the historical town of Dahlonega, Georgia. It is the perfect location to get away from the busy life while visiting the north Georgia mountain attractions. The Swag House is located on 38 private acres with the Chattahoochee National Forest boundary just a few feet from the back door.

The Swag House is convenient to attractions and activities enjoyed by guests of all ages. Four of Georgia’s best wineries are within 10 miles. It lies between Amicalola Falls State Park and Unicoi State Park. The Appalachian Trail crossings of Woody Gap and Neal’s Gap are only a few minutes drive from the Swag House. The Dahlonega area is known for the first gold rush in America and has a state historical “Gold Museum”, as well as two historical mines that offer tours. The “Alpine-like” village of Helen is also only a 30 minute drive away.

The Swag House was established as a family home of a local forester and his family in the early 1990’s. The home is surrounded by a small meadow with a larger mountain meadow to the south. Otherwise, typical Blue Ridge Mountain forests surround the Swag House. It is common to see whitetail deer, wild turkey and other wildlife surrounding the House and on the gravel drive into the Swag House property.

The property surrounding the home provides opportunities for "off-trail" hiking in the National Forest, as well as leisurely walks along the gravel drive.

The Swag House contains 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths and comfortably sleeps 6. Contact the owner to accommodate additional guests. The 3 bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has a king bed and has an associated master bath with separate shower and marble tub. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom that has a tub/shower combination. The second bedroom has a full size bed and the third bedroom has a queen bed. The House has a fully-equipped modern kitchen, wide screen televisions via satellite, provided WiFi internet service, and other comforts/amenities. There is a large deck and comfortable front porch for relaxing after a day of site-seeing. The large den is the focal point of the home and includes a working fireplace opposite a wall of windows that provides wonderful views of "Three Sisters Mountains" from late Fall to mid-Spring. The "library" room contains books for all ages and an antique upright piano for plinking.

The "mudroom" contains the washer/dryer for the use of guests. Linens are provided, as well as an initial supply of paper products.

We welcome your enjoyment of the Swag House during your stay in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia.

Very Nice House!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was very nice and well equipped with everything you need. The driveway is a bit of a challenge; just needs a little fill as part of it is washed out. We stayed for a wedding in Cleveland and the location was very convenient to Dallhlonega and Cleveland.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the Swag House. We apologize for any inconvenience you had driving along the driveway. It is a gravel driveway that we routinely maintain. However, the area had significant rainfall this spring that caused some minor issues on the driveway between maintenance. Thank you for choosing the Swag House for your stay.

Incredible Home

  • 5 of 5

My bridesmaids and I stayed here for our wedding weekend, and it was better than we could of imagined. When we arrived the house was clean and well maintained, the hosts even had a welcome basket for us! It was a restful time before the wedding festivities, we spent most of our time in their large, warm living room sipping coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings. Most of the weekend we were busy with wedding activities, but enjoyed Dahlonega! We enjoyed our stay and would recommend staying in this amazing home to anyone, especially brides and their bridal party! :)

Perfectly Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Every window has a stunningly beautiful view in this lovely home. Lots and lots of space for everyone to spread out - and we all agreed the beds were VERY comfortable.

We want to live there!

  • 5 of 5

Every home we have owned was chosen with the property being the first and most important consideration. We have to be immersed in nature, have room for our dogs to run, and the modern comforts of a quality home. We could live at the Swag House, and we did for a weekend. It was perfect! The local area was wonderful as well. I'm sure we will return there as it really feels like home, away from home.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a long weekend to go to a wedding at Wolf Mountain Vineyards. Not only was this a beautiful house, it was so close to the vineyard that we became a meeting place for extended family. There was plenty of space for all of us. The only downside is the long driveway.

The Swag House is within 10 miles of four north Georgia wineries, so a winery tour is a must. Our property is in the perfect location for visiting Georgia's mountain State Parks and other outdoor recreation, including Amicalola Falls State Park, Unicoi State Park, the Appalachian Trail, and others. The historical towns of Dahlonega and Helen are close. Pan for gold just down the road (2 miles) in one of two gold mine sites of the 1828 gold rush in Dahlonega.
