About the property

Large 1 bedroom/ bath Treehouse with mountain views, close to the wineries

Private, cozy retreat nestled in some of the highest mountains in North Georgia, 8 miles north of Dahlonega off of Hwy 60, adjacent to the Chattahoochee National Forest, situated in the midst of Georgia's Wine Highway. Enjoy wonderful views of sunrise and sunset from the private Treehouse deck. The Treehouse, which is self contained with its own private entrance, is a carriage house, built in 2012, charmingly furnished, and has a large living and dining area. Kitchen amenities are microwave, toaster oven, 2 burner stove, coffeemaker, dishwasher and refrigerator. There is a Weber grill for outdoor grilling. Bath with shower is directly off the cozy sleeping nook, which has a very comfortable queen size futon. The living area also has a twin sleeper. Traveling with friends, or if you don't need kitchen facilities, consider the Terrace Suite, a newly completed one bedroom suite, encompassing the entire terrace level of Pine Cone Lodge. Make yourself at home!

About Judy Wheeler

We are so excited about Dahlonega and our home and love to share. As part of our retirement we left Alpharetta to look for a slower pace. Little did we know the pace isn't slower, there is just less traffic! Our goal is to make you as welcome as friends and family, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Our mission is for you to leave saying, "I love this place and how I feel when I'm here, and I can't wait to come back!"

Judy Wheeler purchased this studio in 2012

Why Judy Wheeler chose Dahlonega

From the moment you crest the hill coming into Dahlonega and see the mountain views, you should be a believer. Once you enter our private, gated community of Trahlyta Estates, take in the views all around and enjoy looking at the quaint log style homes of this community. Once you enter the driveway at Laurel Ridge, you are in for a surprise. The views will take your breath away! Once we saw the views, we knew this was the spot we wanted to build on. Even though you are tucked away in your own mountain retreat, you are close to all the fun the area has to offer. Charming, pristine suite gives you lots of room where you need it. This quiet, gated area can be anything you want it to escape for relaxation or a getaway for a special celebration. Located right off Hwy 60, bikers, bicyclists, wine enthusiasts, wedding guests and hikers find paradise! Enjoy the many trout streams, lakes, state parks and waterfalls in the area. We have a book in the Treehouse listing the waterfalls, and many of the guests have left comments sharing some of their favorite personal experiences while visiting. Before you come, feel free to call and let me give you some personal recommendations and suggest where you might need reservations. Come see us, you won't be disappointed.

What makes this studio unique

Step out your private entrance and enjoy being in the midst of the Chattahoochee National Forest, but still close to Dahlonega and the wineries. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun come up and see the clouds nestled in the mountains, something you won't forget. If you can't stand being disconnected, there is cable tv and wifi. Have a taste of mountain living at it's best.

Absolutely loved the Tree House at Laurel Ridge. Beautiful cabin feel, all the amenities of home.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t be more pleased with our stay at this property. Nice Mountain View’s with beautiful sunrises. The space is very comfortable with a full kitchen and space to relax. The interior is immaculately kept. A few minutes drive will take you back to town and to multiple area wineries. About an hour drive and you’ll be hiking the approach trail of the A.T. Would highly recommend staying here.

Great little getaway

The treehouse is adorable! It has everything you need for a little getaway. It is small, but really you come to the mountains to be outside and it is close to beautiful things.

Great location, nestled in the mountains.

  • 4 of 5

The treehouse was exactly that, a clean and cozy little cabin nestled in the mountains. It is on the owners own property but you have a lot of privacy to enjoy your stay. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the nature walk to the pond. Our pooch loved it too!! It was just a short drive to the wineries, restaurants and downtown Dahlonega. Thank you for allowing me to have a memorable 40th Birthday!

Perfect Treehouse Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Treehouse! The treehouse is warm and inviting, and every amenity needed for a quick visit to Dahlonega was right at our fingertips. The views from the property were stunning. Mrs. Judy was always an easy phone call away if we needed anything. Will definitely keep this charming spot in mind for future trips to Dahlonega.

Dahlonega is the gateway to the North Georgia mountains, and a playground for hikers, bicyclists, motor bikers and wine enthusiasts. The local vineyards have become popular for weddings.

Dick's Creek, Cooper's Creek, Woody Gap and Lake Winfield Scott and Lake Vogel are nearby for swimming and some of the best trout fishing in the country.

Visit the many waterfalls in the area, and don't miss hiking DeSoto Falls, a friendly hike with two waterfalls.

Enjoy touring the 6 wineries surrounding us for tastings or dining with fantastic mountain views.

Rafting, kayaking and tubing is available on the rivers around Dahlonega, and you might decide to pan for gold or tour the gold mines.

Antique shops and restaurants are plentiful in downtown Dahlonega, as well as art galleries, specialty shops, tasting rooms and the Gold Museum. The first Dress Up and J.R. Crider's was established here, and are a must stop for the younger crowd. If you are having "withdrawal" from the city, there is a Starbuck's about a block off the square. On the first Friday of the month Hancock Park has live music, just behind the square. A "mini Chastain", if you will.

Don't miss Wolf Mountain Vineyard for brunch, lunch or a glass of wine. Make reservations before you come, they fill up fast. Montaluce is a great dinner spot, if you want to get to another winery. Three Sisters, Frogtown, Kaya and Cavendar Creek are also not to be missed. Frogtown has special dinner and brunch events throughout the year that are wonderful, with more beautiful views.

Some of our favorite dining spots in Dahlonega, on or just off the square, are the Oyster Bar-seafood and good oysters, Shenanigan's, all around menu, just great food and an outdoor deck with music, and it is pet friendly. Bourbon Street is Cajun style, with a porch overlooking the square and another pet friendly back deck. Want a good margarita and Mexican-go to Pueblo's, without a reservation you will probably have to wait. Gold City has good barbecue, done on the Green Egg. Connie's Ice Cream shop wins "Best sandwich in Dahlonega" every year. Gustavo's has great salads and garlic cheese rolls. Of course they have pizza, Stromboli, pasta, etc. Crimson Moon is where you want to go for live entertainment. The entertainers change nightly. The Picnic Cafe serves light breakfast and lunches with some outdoor seating. Corkscrew Cafe is more fine dining, very good, with indoor and outdoor seating.

A couple of miles from the square you will find Yahoola Grill and Johnny B's, (great wings and sports bar atmosphere). For breakfast you might want to try Foothill's Grill, Hickory Prime or Wagon Wheel.

If you have had a full day and want to come back, relax and enjoy the view, stop by Feast for gourmet to go.

Finally, if traveling with friends, ask me....there are other accommodations nearby and on property.

I've tried to give you a quick overview, but you can also go to the web site for the Dahlonega Chamber of Commerce to get additional information as to dates of specific events.
