Unique Farmstead Lodging, B&Bs and Cabins
An overnight stay at a quaint B&B or rustic cabin provides the perfect escape from urban life!
You don’t have to settle for cookie-cutter accommodations when you travel the North Georgia Farm Trail. Here, accommodations can range from rustic to luxurious — and include everything from farmstead lodging to B&Bs, rental cabins and even upscale camping in a fully outfitted “glamping” tent!
Wherever you stay, you’ll notice that it’s different out here. The stars are brighter … the air is clearer … and the sounds of city life are far, far away. So, go ahead and plan for a night in the country. Chase some fireflies, stargaze or just laze away the evening on a porch swing. After a restful night in our crisp mountain air, you’ll be ready for even more adventures along the North Georgia Farm Trail.
