Did you know that scenic mountain living is just a short drive from Atlanta? Less than an hour from the busy city, Big Canoe is a private residential community located on 6,700 acres of scenic land in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Within the gate, Big Canoe’s one-of-a-kind living experience provides residents a combination of outdoor activities, resort-style amenities and community clubs to enjoy year-round.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are renowned for offering stunning views and endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. Despite the cold weather, winter is actually one of the most popular times to experience Georgia’s natural beauty. At Big Canoe, you can take in the winter scenery by visiting one of the community’s extensive hiking paths that include more than 20 miles of award-winning trails. Hiking trails range from casual walking trails ideal for early morning strolls to more mountainous hiking challenges.
No matter the trail, hikers are sure to enjoy the crisp mountain air and the calm serenity winter brings to the mountain region. Leafless trees create a barren winter landscape that allows sightseers to take in miles of mountain views, while the winter temps freeze Big Canoe’s lakes and waterfalls to create an icy winter wonderland.
After a long day hiking in the winter, there’s nothing quite like coming home to a warm and cozy fire in the fireplace and relaxing the day away. When you choose to call Big Canoe your weekend mountain home, this idyllic winter scenario becomes your reality. Here are just a few of the homes available for sale at Big Canoe:
