Oh the lure of the lake... whether you are a fisherman, a boat enthusiast, a part time or full time resident or just enjoy holding down the dock in an Adirondack chair with an ice cold glass of something... it’s nice to be near the water. Northeast Georgia and Western North Carolina are fortunate to have many bodies of water, all man-made, with fishing shacks and luxury homes lining their shores. This season finds families enjoying themselves and visitors to the area who are discovering the mountains for the first time. 

Buckets of bait and stringers of perch, bream and bass are hauled in and out each day. Boats traveling at all speeds make their way up and down or across the water from daylight to dark. There are private docks and public beaches on each lake and stories galore are shared among friends. It is after all the season! 

We welcome back out part timers and embrace visitors and travelers. Business is in full swing and we are grateful for all the bounty it brings. For you the visitor you can expect to find the sweetest tea, quaintest towns, nicest strangers and abundant natural beauty. From our front porch swings to our pontoon boats we welcome your company and invite you to discover all that is the mountain lifestyle. 

Enjoy a delicious farm to table meal with a glass of local wine, take home a jar of honey, a fine art print and make a new friend before you return to your city life. Don’t be a stranger because there is always plenty to do here (see our incredible event calendar). We dedicate this issue to our friends on the lakes. 

Oh and enjoy your Laurel!

Grateful for you.
