Cedar House inn and yurts

Set in the lush north Georgia Wine Country 70 miles north of Atlanta, these yurts feature canopied beds and private decks. Visit Dahlonega’s Holly Theater just west of the historic town square or head to the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi in Amicalola State Park. On you way, stop at the Funky Chicken Art Project, an art gallery set inside an old chicken coop, and visit the Garden of Peace Project .

The Green Factor: As members of the Green Hotels Associatioon, owners Mary Beth and Fred Tanner incorporate passive solar principles throughout the property. The inn’s low-flow toilets and showers and a pesticide free lawn and garden keep with their earth friendly principles. Guests who stay in the light-on-the-land yurts have use if a shower house and composting toilet. DAHLONEGA, GEORGIA


We covered the first 1 Hotel and Residences project in Seattle, now a second 1 has been announced, for the Buckhead area of Atlanta. Barry Hotel Partners and Starwood Capital Group Global LLC will be developing the 1 Hotel & Residences which will be part of The Streets of Buckhead, Ben Carter Properties's plans to turn eight acres of Buckhead Village into a luxury mixed-use district. The 1 hotel will be two towers with a spa in the middle and will be going for an LEED green certification. One tower will hold 175 hotel rooms and 48 condos and the other will have 50 condos. The Streets of Buckhead will also feature over 500,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, additional hotels and office space all arranged in a walkable cityscape area. The entire project is set to open in Fall 2009.
