Christmas in the Mountains

The December Calendar is filled with holiday activities in the mountains. Living and working around the corner from Helen, I just have to take an occasional drive through town to see the lights, people, and excitement.

While staying with Georgia Mountain Rentals (GMR), most of our guests plan at least one dinner on the cabin grill. The first image that always comes to mind when you mention firing up the grill is a thick juicy steak with new potatoes roasting on the back side. Jazz up your meal with a variety of flavors and delicious vegetables! Visit one of the local produce stands or Saturday morning Farmer’s Markets for a change in the menu. (more…)
