Lodge at Amicalola Falls in Dawsonville, Georgia launches renovation

A major renovation of the Lodge at Amicalola Falls in Dawsonville, Ga., is underway. Opened in 1991, the 57-guestroom lodge (which also offers 14 separate cabins and hike-in only accommodations) will receive a major redesign under the direction of the State of Georgia and the management of Coral Hospitality. The lodge will remain open to guests during the renovation process.

The renovation is scheduled to be finished in late fall, with a new lobby, completely refreshed guestrooms and upgrades and improvements to all of the cabins.

New furnishings in the Craftsman style will be arranged in the new lobby, with the focal point of the gathering space being a natural fireplace. From the lobby, guests will experience Amicalola Falls through artwork and photography.
