Two Days Away: Lakeside Idyll in Lake Rabun, Georgia

Two Days Away: Lakeside Idyll in Lake Rabun, Georgia
The Open Door at Alley’s Ol’ Store

An easy 90 minutes northeast of Atlanta, this pastoral escape offers a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. Lakemont Village has been the community hub since the lake was first filled. Once the site of a general store and train depot, the village now features art, antiques, food, a spa, lodging, and more. Nearby Hillside Orchard Farms and Tiger Mountain Vineyards & Winery are worthy jaunts.
