For my birthday/anniversary present David planned a night away to Dahlonega. I am always mentioning checking out the vineyards up there so I was excited. After David told me that he had a hard time even finding someplace to stay I set off into research mode to figure out why. We were just planning on visiting one of the wineries and maybe eating dinner there, but why not add in 4 more wineries? Thanks to my mom for watching Max for us!! FYI- Lots of photos with this post, I am too lazy to make collages.
This particular weekend was the Wine Trail Weekend. For $25 you can visit 5 of the local vineyards for a tasting. This seemed a bit high to me, but after looking at each individual place and the cost of $10-15 per tasting, I was sold. Plus, you also received a free wine glass.
The beautiful vineyard as we drove in.
Such luscious plants and grounds.
We set up the camera for a quick photo at Wolf Mountain wedding spot.
Anyways, Cavender creek is known for their donkeys they have on premises.
Next stop was Frogtown Cellars.
The view from the road. They also have a restaurant/lunch panini cafe. Their deck wraps around and has a lot of seating.
We were staying at the Dahlonega spa and resort, which was only 1 mile from Frogtown so we decided to check-in since it was around 3ish after we finished at Frogtown. This was our view driving up.
You can also stay at cottages.
We opted to pay a little extra to get one of their 8 cabins.
Our cabin came with a kitchen area and a mini fridge.
It was really nice and I would highly recommend the place. They also had a big hot tub for everyone to use. It was raining so we were the only ones that were in it, but still a nice feature. If we're friends on instagram (Jens871) you saw it.
They have gorgeous views and a nice LONG bar inside.
