Before booking I was a little bit concerned that there wouldn't be enough to do in the Dahlonega area to keep my 2 teens (18&16 years) entertained for 4 weeks! I could not have been more wrong!! Monarch Lodge looks as good if not better than the photos. It's extremely comfortable (particularly the beds) and very well equipped with everything you could need for a long stay vacation. The river and creek are awesome for pottering about and the Ettowa Falls are just a couple of mins. walk away. We had a lot of fun with Dutch's kayak and my husband and son both caught trout fly-fishing. Dutch could not have been more helpful both during the booking process and our stay. Lisa you are an angel, thank you for everything and especially for the birthday cake to make Rosies 16th truly sweet!! There is so much to do and see in the area all within convenient driving distance. Our highlights included, clay pigeon shooting, karting and kayaking on the Chestatee, tour of the Consolidated Gold mines and Amiacola Falls. On Lake Lanier striped-bass fishing, and 'wake the lake' were awesome. Great shopping in Dahlonega and the outlet mall in Dawsonville, plus Walmart around 10 mins. from the Lodge. Dahlonega has a great selection of restaurants to suit all prices. I've missed out a bunch of stuff and we left without completing all our planned activities. I would highly recommend Monarch Lodge for both short and long term stays. Thank you Dutch for sharing your wonderful home and providing us all with a truly memorable vacation. All best wishes from the Slayter family.
