My wife and I and another couple our age are considering this area in a few years. We live in Cape Coral, FL it's a nice area with 430 miles of canals of which 200 plus are gulf access. Summers are extremely hot and it seems as though the winters are getting warmer. It's Christmas eve and it's 85 and noticeably humid today. We used to live in the Adirondacks where winter was 6 months long. Ellijay area seems to have 4 seasons on a smaller scale. We will be visiting area this spring. I am 51 wife is 43. We like parts of where we live but also miss mountains and small town feel. Any and all info and opinions are welcome.

The north Georgia area of the mountains do get 4 full seasons . They are very distinct from each other, which I really enjoy.
One suggestion I am going to make to you is to look at several areas of the north Georgia mountains before you make your decision.Each of the towns are very unique from each other, in my opinion, and all are worth looking into.

Thank you very much for responding do you have some suggested town names?
Would like to be close to Blue Ridge lake as we are boaters. Is blue ridge lake decent size? It appears to be the only lake around?

We have a boat on Lake Blue Ridge. Very scenic lake. Carters Lake is a few miles west of Ellijay and Nottely Lake is several miles east of Blue Ridge. They are not very large lakes, but all three are very pretty and large enough for a full day of cruising around. Beautiful area of the state.

Thank you very much for responding what would you say is the biggest boat the lake can accommodate?

You really don't see many over 24-26 feet. The vast majority are pontoons.

If you prefer deeper water for larger boats you might check out Lake Lanier, and the Gainesville area.
You might get some inside info here:
