Cavender Creek Cabins

200 Beaver Dam Road Dahlonega, Georgia

August 2007
In August we traveled to Dahlonega, Georgia for our review of Cavender Creek Cabins armed with directions from their website. Cavender Creek Cabins appears to be very isolated, yet it is only a few minutes (10 or less) from downtown Dahlonega. We stayed in Cabin #4, a 2 bedroom with queen beds, an open loft with 2 twin beds, a queen sized sleeper sofa, full kitchen, one bath cabin which sits in the woods (as do all of the cabins). Cavender Creek Cabins' web site states that this cabin sleeps 6 which it easily could, but the sleeper sofa would actually allow for 8 overnight guest.


Cabin #4 was nicely decorated and very comfortable, however I had a difficult time staying off the back porch. The back porch faces Cavender Creek, but mostly what you see is the trees and birds. Also located on the back porch is a gas BBQ grill and the hot tub. The hot tub received a lot of use from my wife & her mother. I just liked sitting on the porch swing doing nothing. I left my laptop at home to force myself to relax. The swing & chairs on the porch were made of wood and very comfortable.

Inside our cabin we did watch some tv one night, and the satellite connection enabled us to watch our normal shows. A DVD player & VCR were also available in the cabin which we probably would have used if the weather had turned rainy. As it turned out our two nights at Cavender Creek Cabins were met with clear skies, however it was hot outside, I did mention that we went in August. The gas fireplace looked very nice, but we had to save that for a fall or winter trip. The air conditioner in the cabin was great.

We only used the refrigerator in our cabin (remember, hot...August) but we could have cooked a full meal because everything needed was there. Also available at Cavender Creek Cabins were hiking trails, a lake and The Lodge. Located just down the road within an easy walk was The Lodge, a large common recreational cabin available to all guest. A pool table, chess, checkers and several other games were all available at The Lodge as were washer & dryers.

As photographers, my wife & I have traveled a great deal. We have stayed is really nice Hotels and some not so great motels. As I sat on the porch swing one morning as the sun was about to come up I thought about the various rooms we had stayed at in the past and about the cabin we were at now and I wondered why we would ever stay in a motel again if a cabin was available. Hotels are great if you are in a big city and need to be near the "action", but if traveling to Dahlonega or any other area where your goal is to get a way from your normal life, to relax and to enjoy the mountains then a cabin is the way to go (or stay).
