From Atlanta traveling Georgia 400 to Dahlonega take 19 North over to 129 North. 129 North brings you over the mountain with Vogel State Park at the base of the mountain. About 4 miles past Vogel you will pass Pappy's Marketplace (big BBQ sign and lots of shops, it's on your left). About one mile further turn right onto Paradise Road, follow Paradise Road to the top of the hill bearing right and the Lodge is about 100 yards further on your right.
From Atlanta traveling 75 North to 575 North stay on 575 (turns into 515 around Jasper when the interstate stops but it's the same highway, no turns) all the way to Blairsville. At the first traffic light in Blairsville, turn right. Follow about 1 block to a 4-way stop sign and turn left onto Blue Ridge St. Continue until you reach the square in town, exiting the square (sign directs toward Vogel State Park) and staying on 129 South. About 3 miles from the square you will pass a BP station and Paradise Road will be about one mile further on your left (just past Hutson Road in the middle of the curve). Follow Paradise Road to the top of the hill bearing right and the Lodge is on your right.
Destination is approximately 100 miles OR 1 ½ hour drive from Atlanta.
