Surrounded by three National Forests, the Chattahoochee, the Nantahala and the Cherokee, North Georgia remains unspoiled due to an abundance of U.S.F.S. & Wildlife Management lands, leaving nearly half of Fannin County untouched! With plenty of space for all types of outdoor activities, your investment in the Blue Ridge Mountains is literally enhanced by thousands of acres of protected forests. The strikingly beautiful and timeless mountain ranges attract many people who seek tranquility.
Fannin County can be found in the northernmost area of Georgia. Located in the Tri-State area which includes Tennessee and North Carolina, Blue Ridge is perfectly positioned about 90 minutes from Atlanta or Chattanooga. About half of the homes are retirement or weekend get-away cabins.
Lake Blue Ridge is known for its sparkling blue waters and exceptional fishing. The many rivers of the region, running clear and clean, offer whitewater rafting, fishing and pure enjoyment for the river enthusiast. With over 550 miles of DNR Trout waters, Fannin County is Georgia's Official "Trout Capitol". We have a superb school system known for its academics, dedicated high school band and sports programs. Fannin Regional Hospital and the Riverstone Medical Campus offer a wide range of state of the art medical services.
Blue Ridge and the surrounding community buzz with activity ~ Fairs, car shows, craft displays, harvest sales, musical gatherings, art festivals like "Arts in the Park", the Blue Ridge Community Theatre and Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. Blue Ridge is now an official "Trail Town". This area is also rich with antique shops and restaurants open all year round.
With very reasonable property taxes, a low cost-of-living and notable Southern hospitality, it's easy to spend a weekend or lifetime here.
