    I had never heard of Ellijay before. Hence I foiund your post very interesting. You provided a variety of places to stay that showcased the options vacationers have. 

    The wine country also helps provide an added attraction. This is definitely a worthwhile alternate than staying in the big cities. Thanks for sharing this gem of a place.

    Cheers.

    Wow! The Georgia Mountains are so Beautiful.  This is an excellent website that displays nature at it’s finest.  The pictures and links are therapeutic and pulls you into the experience.  Fun family time, in nature, excursions and/or just relax, listen and feel the peacefulness in the environment.   Thank you for sharing the details of the Georgia Mountains.  

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Tim, I agree that the Georiga mountains are gorgeous. Pictures are worth a thousand words, but they just can’t do justice to how beautiful the area is in person! I hope you can visit and experience it for yourself someday soon!

  3. Jannette says:

    My nephew used to live in Ellijay and moved to Tennessee a couple of years ago. When I visited him in Ellijay was surprised how small the community was and everyone was so friendly. Now my family is planning a trip back just soon as COVID restrictions are lifted. I appreciate your list of places to stay and will be checking out each one. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jannette, Ellijay is such a charming small town and it’s always nice to explore the area and enjoy the natural beauty all around. I hope you find the perfect Ellijay accommodations for your next trip!

  4. Toplink says:

    i did not know that the area contained so much beauty and that it would make an excellent vacation area to visit. The places to stay, the prices, and the pictures shown are incredible and entices one to book a holiday there. You mentioned that it is Georgia’s mountain biking capital and that there are many festivals each year. This is when I think I would like to book my vacation but what important festivals are held here and what dates of the year are they held?

     

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Toplink, Ellijay hosts an apple blossom festival in the Spring and an apple harvest festival in the Fall. The Fall is the more popular of the two, so it is advised to book early for trips during this busy time of year.

    I have to go to Atlanta for business. And I have already booked a tour to go with my family to the CNN Center, World of Coca-Cola, and the Georgia Aquarium. But I have been reading about the picturesque landscape of rolling hills in Ellijay. And because we still have about four days free in our schedule, I would also like to go there! I found your post helpful and it encouraged me to visit Ellijay.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Abel, Ellijay is an easy drive up into North Georgia if you are traveling from Atlanta – it can be done as a day trip, or with this article you can get a sense of your Ellijay lodging options.

  6. Jerry McCoy says:

    If a person is interested in wine-tasting or in staying at any number of hotels or bed and breakfast or even rent a cabin in north Georgia, they will be pleasantly surprised. There are so many places to stay, from moderately priced just above moderate. The number of guests seems to be the deciding factor on where to stay. The rates seem reasonable and they are all within just a few minutes of downtown.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jerry! It’s nice to be able to stay in a larger place when traveling with more than a couple of people. These Ellijay lodging options have something for all group sizes and budgets!
