My family and I are very interested in moving to the Gainesville Ga area. We would like to know which areas around there would be the best to search for homes. We would rather have a view of the mountains than one of a lake. We would like about 2 or 3 acres if possible, my son has a 4-wheeler that he loves to ride.

But my son has to have ot,pt and speech therapy so we would need to be sort of close to those services. That is why we sort of picked the Gainesville area to start our search.

We are planning on driving up that way 2 weekends from now to look around and would like some suggestions as to where to focus our search.

Thanks for any of you that have suggestions.

I would say the Ellijay Area. It's gorgeous.

Gainesville is not in the mountains, or really even in the foothills. You need to go a little farther north to where 441 intersects 23 around Baldwin/Cornellia - you might be able to get some hill/mountain views starting there - the real pretty stuff starts at Tallulah in the NE corner.

Make sure you take a look at Dahlonega, GA. It is directly up GA 400 and is also north of Atlanta like Gainesville. Gainesville is NE of Atlanta and Dahlonega is directly north of Atlanta. Beautiful mountain views there in Dahlonega.

As the others said--Ellijay, Cornelia, Dahlonega---all good for mtn views and certainly the land is available.

I saw a few mtns around Dawsonville--which is close to Gainesville. Hall county probably is a larger school district than others further north.

I suppose you already visited the area. That is really the best way to start searching.

Here's a link--NE Georgia>>>

Good luck.
