Friends Winter Trip

friends shopping during Christmas time
Hometown Florist & Yesterday's Décor

Lighten up the long gray days of winter with a friends’ getaway. Even the coldest weather snaps can’t chill a day in Ellijay, home to fun shops, fine wines, good times, and food that will warm you from the inside out.

Jump-start your day with a hearty breakfast at Tony’s Country Corner Kitchen in Ellijay, where the biscuits are always in high demand.

Hit the shops in downtown Ellijay to discover unexpected treasures at Hometown Florist & Yesterday’s Décor as well as a taste or two of made-from-scratch candy at Bavarian
Chocolatier and Fudge Shop.

Handle lunch-time hunger at The Roof, a rooftop kitchen and bar beloved for its delicious burgers and great patio views.

Return to shopping with stops at Feathering the Nest, The Third Hummingbird, and Rey’s Relics. Just be sure to clear suitcase room first for the great decor, jewelry, and antiques you’re sure to find.

Enjoy a late-afternoon winery hop at Buckley Vineyards, Ott Farms and Vineyard, and Chateau Meichtry Family Vineyard & Winery, and toast your friendship with a glass of award-winning North Georgia wine.

Order a piping-hot bowl of gumbo, a shrimp po’ boy, or other authentic Creole fare at the Cajun Depot Grill. Voila, dinner is done.

Relax and unwind amid lots of laughter at your luxury cabin from Mountain Oasis Cabin Rentals, where available hot tubs and fire pits will keep everyone cozy.
