Discover a serene backdrop in Dawson County


Dawsonville sits in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, edging Lake Lanier and accessing the Appalachian Trail at the Springer Mountain trailhead.

A serene backdrop with tumbling waterfalls and peaceful ambiance, this “Hospitality Highway” community has long been a meeting place and activity center for groups as far back as the Cherokee Indians – and remains so today. Lodging options include restorative, retreat-like accommodations equipped for executive retreats, conferences and team building activities. Wedding, reunion, and faith-based groups, from small group sizes to up to 200, will be well accommodated in this mountain setting that also offers in-town, limited-service and brand name chain hotels.
