For anyone new to the Atlanta area or for those who have spent a lifetime exploring everything this state has to offer, one thing is for sure: fall in Georgia is unparalleled. Mild temperatures, beautiful scenery and an abundance of fall activities help to create a magnificent season for all Georgians to take advantage of. One hidden gem located in the mountains of North Georgia that is exceptionally beautiful in the fall is Big Canoe.
Known as “The Enchanted Land,” this North Georgia private residential community located on 6,700 acres of land is the perfect getaway. Make sure to take in the beautiful scenery by visiting the extensive hiking paths, including more than 20 miles of award-winning trails. For anyone looking for a casual morning stroll or mountainous hiking challenges, look no further because it can all be found on the Big Canoe trail network! Beginners and avid hikers alike are sure to enjoy the fresh mountain air, diverse wildlife and the beautiful trees changing colors with the season.
Another active pastime Big Canoe is known for is golf! The 27-hole championship Mountain Course designed by Joe Lee offers incredible views of breathtaking mountain peaks, rushing streams and lush valleys. We can only imagine playing this course surrounded by leaves exploding in reds, yellows and oranges signifying the beginning of fall. Additionally, the community is home to the Choctaw Cherokee and Creek courses, each challenging players of all levels with nine unique holes of fun.

The opportunity for Big Canoe residents and guests to experience an active lifestyle continues. In addition to the expansive hiking trails and expertly designed golf courses, this community also offers one of the finest Racquet Clubs in the Atlanta area. Tennis lovers can choose between the ten unique courts, four of which are specifically designated for pickleball. For more competitive playing, the community also offers leagues and special events for couples, singles, youth and seniors.
For anyone partial to the water, Big Canoe meets everyone’s needs from the sandy beach access at Lake Disharoon to the 110,000-gallon free-form pool. And even though it’s fall, cooler weather doesn’t mean the water is off limits! With three pristine lakes on the grounds, enjoy boating, paddle boarding and fishing while enjoying the view of the breathtaking mountains and towering trees.
The only thing better than a long day of fishing is one that ends with a cup of hot chocolate in front of a warm fireplace. When you choose to live at Big Canoe, lake days always end on a high note. Fortunately, this residential community has a lakefront home for sale at 82 Bear Creek. This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home was built in 2016 and features the popular Craftsman style. Priced at $549,000, the cul-de-sac home is beautifully landscaped with a fenced-in back yard, perfect for kids and dogs to play in the freshly tumbled fall leaves. The designer kitchen contains enviable features including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf gas cooktop and farm-style Elkay stainless-steel sink. Custom rock and stone paths and stone patios look stunning against the colorful fall trees and unique exterior. To see all available homes at Big Canoe, click here.
