Rabun County COVID-19 Resolution

The nasty COVID-19 Monster strikes again. Threatening summer vacations at the Retreat at Lake Burton and also Camp High Harbour!

It’s not much fun for anyone. Hopefully, we will be over this thing soon.

In the meantime, Rabun County has come up with a very restrictive resolution for Lake House rentals.

Here is a copy of that resolution!

At this point, this thing is scheduled to expire next Sunday, April 5th. Ambitious, to say the least. But, we will keep track of any updates here weekly; so that, in the event you are interested, you know where to look!

The Georgia Mountain State Fair

October is the month that the Georgia Mountain State Fair occurs in Hiawassee, Georgia.

As children, we went there to see the giant tomatoes and other crops grown by the mountain folk and to see the cloggers, hear the fiddlers and see the hog rifle competition, like something right out of Sergeant York!

It’s a great place to go to enjoy something completely different!

There is a complete calendar of events in the above link.
