Dancing Bear Cottage

No arrival and departure date specified yet.

In the North Georgia Mountains, just 10 minutes north of the mountain town of Dahlonega, down a private driveway and tucked away just out of view behind the tree line at Mountain Laurel Creek Inn and Spa in Dahlonega Georgia is the Dancing Bear Cottage. Our luxury cottage cabin rental is ideal for a cozy couples romantic getaway or as your base for a mountain vacation, to relax and totally unwind and de-stress from your busy world.

The Dancing Bear Cottage is a fully furnished cabin for a single couple, with all the high-end contemporary amenities and conveniences for a perfect getaway of relaxation, indulgence and romance. Special features include: king size bed, eat-in kitchen, private screened porch overlooking the forest, gas fireplace, steam shower and jetted freestanding tub, flat screen TV with Satellite reception, DVD player and complimentary wireless internet connection. The cabin was built using eco-friendly building practices, with bamboo floors in the bath, no VOC paints, and a tankless water system.

Your privacy and relaxation are assured at the Dancing Bear Cottage as we do not cater to groups or party weekends. Maximum cabin occupancy is strictly enforced to two. Our cottage is not designed to accommodate groups and if this is your intention we can refer you to other establishments in the area that can meet your needs. Please, no events allowed at the cottage, no bridesmaids lunches or groups.

Extend your relaxation and enjoy spa services at the Oasis Day Spa located only steps away next door at the Mountain Laurel Creek Inn. Advance reservations are highly recommended to ensure availability of your preferred treatment.

The cottage is equipped with a full kitchen and is self-catered.  Breakfast at the inn is not included in the price.  Only by prior reservation and if there is sufficient space, breakfast at the inn can be added on the weekends (Saturday & Sunday morning) for an additional $12 a person each morning.

If you’d like to skip the hassles of grocery shopping, let us stock the breakfast pantry prior to your arrival.
