Spring in Big Canoe and the North Georgia Mountains


Springtime Sometimes Can’t make up its Mind!

Mother Nature is Definitely in Menopause! My poor blueberry bushes, all 140 of them, are not sure what to do. It’s Hot and Cold, and everything in between. I’m hoping for 2 things right now; April, the Giraffe needs to have baby!  and that Spring  gets itself in gear! All of Georgia is raining today, so I thought I’d write a little about Big Canoe and the North Georgia mountains.

Big Canoe and Bent Tree are gated mountain Communities in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, only a short 1 hour drive to to Atlanta. The air is clean and the roads are windy and full of scenic mountain and pastoral views. There are several other communities in the area as well and farms for sale too. My point is really to state that the whole community up here is a lot more relaxed. People talk in the grocery stores and just don’t seem to be so geared up like the Atlanta suburbs. There really isn’t a competitive attitude up here, but once you move up here there is a period of adjustment. I know this personally because I am originally from New Jersey! HaHa! I think Jersey would eat me alive now! 

So if you are looking for a mountain community with amenities and plenty of social clubs, consider big Canoe and Bent Tree. There are clubs for everything up here; boccie ball, gardening, travel, hiking, horseback riding, writing, cooking, dinner 8, Bunco, the Ridge Runners, and plenty more opportunities to be involved.
