Hearthstone Lodge – Georgia

Experience gracious and friendly hospitality while you can enjoy privacy, romance, and seclusion at Georgia’s Hearthstone Lodge, a luxurious bed & breakfast situated in the Northern Georgia Mountains close to Ellijay, GA, and also not far from Chatsworth, GA. This is a place for all four seasons.

You can wonderfully relax in this natural and unspoiled mountain setting that’s nestled right between phenomenal Carters Lake and Fort Mountain State Park in the beautiful the Georgia mountains area, only some 90 miles north of the city of Atlanta and around 50 miles southeast of Tennessee’s Chattanooga.

Enjoy a pleasant picnic at our spectacular waterfall, stroll along the nature trails at Sugar Creek, or hike to the top of the summit to view the Chattahoochee National Forest. Our hiking trails are safe and quiet and each location is less than a mile hike from the lodge. You may also enjoy socializing with the others guest or relaxing by yourselves in one of the many quiet areas of the lodge.


Georgia’s Hearthstone Lodge is, should we say, of course, an entirely smoke-free facility targeted at adult guests who are at least 21 years of age. Pets are not allowed on the property but in the nearby area, you will find a few excellent accommodations that will perfectly take care of your pets. The lodge’s rates are including a gourmet breakfast, refreshments at 5 pm, and a delightful dessert after the finest of dinners. If you want to make arrangements for a massage in the lodge’s private spa, please make an appointment prior to arrival.

Looking for a great wedding location? The Hearthstone Lodge offers a unique wedding experience. The setting reminds slightly of Clover Creek Guest Ranch in Tennessee. The same sort of mountainous environment and the same kind of hospitality.

The Ultimate Get-away…

Hearthstone will provide you with a feeling of seclusion and privacy and offers unforgettable and luxurious accommodations. The lodge offers a harmonious and wonderful blend of a traditional and historical warmth in combination with the most beautiful lodge furnishings that were handcrafted by various local artisans.

For your comfort and enjoyment, you can find fireplaces on all of the Lodge’s three levels. The Lodge has an inviting and sun-spread breakfast room, an enormous and beautiful great-room that comes with exposed beams, an antique but well-functioning baby-grand piano, a 25-feet stacked fireplace made of stone and an impressive bull elk antler chandelier. This is similar to what we can find in more northern regions, but here, the temperature will definitely not get as low as up north at Moose Mountain Lodge.

The Lodge’s formal dining room provides an ambiance where you can enjoy wonderful dinners during your holidays and that is perfect for special occasion luncheons or breakfasts. On the lodge’s private level you can enjoy a very interesting art gallery as well as a 500-volume wonderful library lie they also have at the Vagabond Ranch in Colorado, another great mountain lodge.

Hearthstone is offering three distinctively different and unique guest suites that are all named after one o the owner’s favorite apples. All guestrooms are tastefully and qualitatively well-appointed and come with queen beds and, of course, private baths. All guestrooms are equipped with a contemporary entertainment center that will satisfy your enjoyment requirements.

The guestrooms, as said before, include sumptuous and luxurious queen beds, luxurious linens, signature amenities, and plush robes, and all guestroom are filled with very special individual touches to make sure you’ll feel in a safe and fine haven of privacy and peace.
