I definitely thought I had stepped back in time when my family went to The General Store at Eagle Mountain which is located at the entrance of the Coosawattee River Resort in Ellijay Georgia. Decorated like the stores of old and in a unique mountain type of setting, this is a place you can also enjoy eating an awesome biscuit for breakfast or even having a nice lunch while sitting at a picnic table as well as an indoor seating area. You remember the days of seeing people chatting, relaxing and enjoying one another in a peaceful setting without being in a crazy hurry?…well, you can experience that here for sure!
Not only have they recently added more grocery items for your convenience but The General Store is always the talk of the community and the place to be for entertainment on event nights with great food, good company, and a variety of music from country to blue grass to Ole Time Rock and Roll. When we went by many people were seated around a campfire outside at the general store!
Each December there is also an arts and crafts show for you to enjoy here as well. I will be writing soon about staying at this resort and renting a cabin or just tubing for the day! Believe it or not, May is not far away for the tubing season to begin. However, meanwhile while the weather is still chilly, check out the general store and I think you too will feel like you stepped back in time!
