This Dahlonega Georgia Resort Is A True Mountain Hide Away!

Just one hour North of Atlanta near Amicalola Falls, our little slice of heaven is located at the foothills of the Georgia mountains.  In 1977 the Kraft Family broke ground and built the first six cabins by hand without any running water or electricity!  Originally known for our romantic honeymoon cabins, we have quickly become a popular destination for group retreats, corporate events, weddings, and receptions. From a humble start, this North Georgia resort has grown to include:

  • Rooms, Suites, Group Lodges & Cabin Rentals
  • Restaurant featuring Couples Dining, Group Dining, & Banquet Rooms
  • Massage Rooms
  • Horseback Riding Stables (Dahlonega Carriage & Horseback Rides)
  • 7 Meeting rooms
  • 5 Group lodges/Mini Hotels
  • 2 Outdoor Wedding Gardens, Wedding Chapel, and 4 Reception Venues.
  • Gift Shop – Outdoor Pool – Volleyball Courts – Walking Trails

Cabin Rentals & Lodging

Stay with us and discover the Forrest Hills difference! This resort was built and managed by the Kraft family for over 40 years. We tune in and listen to everything our guests say and it’s by this practice that we have came to be for if we heard it enough we either built it, added it, or changed it.

Our eclectic mix of private cabins all with a hot tub and fireplace, hotel rooms, and group lodging, are interesting to say the least! The best part is they co-exist nicely, with our honeymooners often wondering if they are the only ones here even when we are full. One way we do this is with separate dining rooms. Our restaurant has a central kitchen with three dining rooms…one is for couples only on their honeymoon or romantic getaway, the second is for families and casual group retreats, and the third dining room seats up to 200 for an elegant banquet or wedding.
