"ChaLaKee" - those who live in the mountains" know very well today what the Cherokee knew then; that the North Georgia mountain region is truly an enchanted land.
The Cherokee Nation was entrenched in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia, Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina as their culture flourished in the 1800s. They had long before called this part of the region their home. But in 1828, gold was discovered in north Georgia's Cherokee territory and the land that the native Cherokee aptly called "Enchanted (4 comments)

Some of my all time fondest memories are family times spent on Lake Burton. This lake is truly my personal favorite. The only word that adequately describes Lake Burton for me is "magical". If you have ever been on this lake, you know what I mean; you can just feel the magic, it's always there no matter how many years go by. I was very blessed to be able to spend summers and holiday breaks with my family at my grandparent's cabin in Murray Cove. My great grandfather helped build the Lake Burton Dam. Today, there are stunning multi million dollar homes on this lake which (7 comments)
