Welcome to Forrest Hills Mountain Resort & Retreat Center

Originally known for our romantic mountain cabin rentals in North Georgia, we have quickly become a popular destination for romantic getaways, honeymoons, group retreats, corporate events, weddings and receptions. From a humble start of just 6 cabins we have grown to have 100 rooms on our resort plus a restaurant, day spa, horseback riding stables (Gold City Corral), meeting facilities, two miles of walking trails, group lodges, gift shop, outdoor wedding gardens with gazebo, wedding chapel, and four reception rooms!

Located between the picturesque town of Dahlonega and the beautiful Amicalola Falls there is always plenty to see and do.

There are five nationally award winning wineries near our famed town square along with gold mine panning, underground gold mine tours, museums, shopping, dining, petting zoos, golf, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, and more and more

Stay and enjoy the heart of the North Georgia Mountains –  Just 1 Hr. north of Atlanta and less from the Alpine Village of Helen.
