Welcome

Many people are looking for a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle. The chance to witness a spectacular sunrise over Weiss Lake, a drove of wild turkeys seen while driving around Little River Canyon, sounds of laughter from paddlers afloat Terrapin Creek, a breathtaking sunset viewed from atop Lookout Mountain, watching rock climbers at Cherokee Rock Village… many people look for such places, and we’re just a short drive from the major cities of Atlanta, Birmingham and Chattanooga.
