Everyone has a vision of their own uniquely personal retreat.

For some, it's a place where they can peacefully co-exist with neighbors that include white-tailed deer, foxes, wild turkey, even an occasional black bear. A sanctuary where they can raise a family among stands of age-old hardwoods instead of an increasingly crowded hectic suburban existence. Where crystal clear springs flow over picturesque waterfalls, tumbling into pristine lakes. Homes blend harmoniously with the environment around them. A haven where every day is a celebration of Nature in all her glory. And where each day is the picture of tranquility, framed by majestic mountain vistas. For some, the perfect place to live is not a dream, but a reality;
 a place they call home...Big Canoe.


Big Canoe is unlike any other community in Georgia. It's located in the Blue Ridge Mountains close to Atlanta, but far removed from traffic, noise and pollution. Big Canoe, Ga. is a gated mountain community in Dawson and Pickens Counties located less than 1 hour north of Atlanta and 1.5 hours north of Athens.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to purchase this estate lot of 4.5 acres located in the heart of Big Canoe. The lot sits on Buck Skull Ridge connecting to Nature Valley, jeep trail, and Disharoon Mountain with road frontage of 337 feet.  The scenic jeep trail, at the rear of the lot, passes near both the lower falls and upper falls on Disharoon Creek. 100's of White Mountain Laurel blooms can be spotted on the lot during the season. The lot is equipped with electricity, water and a fire hydrant for the best insurance rates. Contact owner Henry O'Pry at 706-353-1817 or 800-282-7000. Lot Price $489,000.
