20 Best Places for Fall Leaf Watching

The temperatures are cooling down and fall has finally arrived in North Georgia! With the amount of rain we’ve had this year, we believe this fall is going to be a brilliant one! All of us at Nathan Fitts & Team are ready to get out our cute boots, hoodies & enjoy the falling leaves and cooler temps. Because this is one of our favorite seasons, we thought we’d put a list together of the top 20 places to get your leaf peeping on this fall.

1. The Southern Highroads Trail – Take a ride along The Southern Highroads trail and enjoy shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor activities in 13 counties and 4 states – North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, & Tennessee. You can choose to do the whole route or break it up into sections.

2. The Appalachian National Scenic Trail – Put on your hiking boots and take a day hike, section hike or thru hike on the 2,146+ mile Appalachian Trail. Both fauna and flora are abundant along this famed route. The route begins at Springer Mountain and travels through 74 miles in North Georgia.

3. The Benton MacKaye Trail – Aiken to the famous Appalachian Trail, the Benton MacKaye Trail is a 300 mile footpath beginning at Springer Mountain and ending in the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. The trail passes through some of the most remote backcountry in Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina offering the most sublime connection with nature.

4. Amicalola Falls State Park – Adventure is Amicalola’s middle name. Enjoy ziplining, archery, hiking, and of course the most magnificent waterfall in Georgia! With over 829 acres to explore, there is no better place to enjoy the fall season.

5. Vogel State Park – A great location for family fun, Vogel State park features both easy and challenging hiking trails for you to enjoy the brilliant fall colors. Take a stroll around Lake Trahlyta and down to Trahlyta Falls, explore the new Vogel to Reece Farm Connector Trail, or challenge yourself with the 4-mile Bear Hair Gap loop or even more difficult 13-mile Coosa Backcountry Trail.

6. Fort Mountain State Park – Originally home to Cherokee Indians, Fort Mountain State Park is a delight for hikers and history buffs. Take a scenic drive along Highway 52 and enjoy the quiet beauty of the Cohutta Wilderness.

7. Brasstown Bald – The highest peak in Georgia, Brasstown Bald, rises 4,784 feet above sea level. You can choose to hike a one mile fairly steep route or take a shuttle bus to the observation deck. At the top you can see 4 states from the top and have a spectacular 360 degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

8. Lake Winfield Scott – A hidden gem in the mountains, Lake Winfield Scott offers a stunning display of fall color along the banks of a small beautiful lake. Campsites and non-motorized boat rentals are available.

9. The Russell-Brasstown Scenic Byway is a 40+ mile nationally designated Scenic Byway. The road makes a loop through three counties in the heart of the Chattahoochee National Forest.

10. Ocoee Scenic Byway – Designated as the first National Forest Byway in the nation, The Ocoee Scenic Byway winds through the Cherokee National Forest. Climb to the top of Chillhowee Mountain, drop down into the Ocoee River Gorge and enjoy all the beauty of the Tennessee Valley.

11. Georgia Mountain Parkway – The Georgia Mountain Parkway begins in Jasper Georgia on Hwy 515 and travels through all of your favorite mountain towns – Ellijay, Blue Ridge, Blairsville, & Hiawassee. Enjoy beautiful mountain views, wildflowers, seasonal festival along with shopping and dining opportunities along the way.

12. Blue Ridge Mountain Railway – Ride in comfort and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage on the Blue Ridge Mountain Railway. Departing in downtown Blue Ridge, the train ride travels up to the twin cities of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.

13. Blanche Manor Horseback Riding – Enjoy the mountains by horseback. With over 40 miles of trails to explore, beautiful guided horseback riding is available for all ages and abilities. What a great way to see the changing leaves!

14. Hay Ride at Mercier’s Orchards – When you think of fall, apples and hayrides probably come to mind. Get the best of the fall season at Mercier Orchards. With over 300 acres and 100,000 apple trees, there is no shortage of fall fun at this family destination. Famous for their fried pies, you can also sample their apple bread, hard cider, and various other sundries.

15. Bear Claw Vineyards – There is no better way to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of the season than with a glass of your favorite red or white wine. Take a walk through the vineyards, rent their tree house or enjoy some great music at one of their many concerts.

16. Zipline Canopy Tours of Blue Ridge – Zip along 165 acres of pastures and a creek in the North Georgia Mountains. Where else can you enjoy the changing leaves from 75’ in the air? If you are feeling more adventurous you can add on a whitewater rafting trip as well!

17. Waterfalls – If you love the sound of rushing water and the beauty of nature, plan a trip to one or many of the area waterfalls. Most approaches are short, but provide ample foliage viewing opportunities. Other trails are a little more moderate, but the end reward is worth it!

18. Toccoa River – Blue Ridge is the Trout Capitol of Georgia. Just minutes from downtown you can access the Toccoa river and enjoy the fishing, picnicking, and leaf peeping this area has to offer.

19. Festivals – Fall Festivals are abundant in North Georgia this time of year. The Georgia Apple Festival in Ellijay, the Blairsville Sorghum Festival, and the Georgia Mountain Fair are all great places to enjoy the tastes and sights of the season.

First Time Home Buyers Do’s and Don’ts

A First Time Homebuyer’s Guide

You’ve been out on your own for a while, secured a great career, and now you’re ready to take the next step in adulthood – Home Ownership. You have heard that real estate is a good investment and home values are on the rise again, so you have decided it’s time to trade in a rent payment for a mortgage note. Before you make the leap, educate yourself on the process and take your time researching your options. Becoming a homeowner is a big commitment and comes with a lot of responsibility. Consider these DO’s and DON’Ts before you purchase your first home.

Do – Know Before You Go

If you don’t have the cash to pay for your home in full and let’s be realistic – who does, it is imperative to get a prequalified mortgage. This should not be a fearful process, but a comforting step. Knowledge gives you power. Not only will you not waste time looking at homes that exceed your means, but you also bring negotiating power to the table over other interested parties. Your closing will also transpire faster and easier when you are pre-approved.

Don’t – Hit The Ceiling

With all the excitement of becoming a homeowner, many first-time buyers begin their search at the top or above their budget instead of at or below their budget. Take into consideration your down payment, home-owners’ insurance, utilities, repairs, and aesthetic improvements you’d like to make. Expenses add up quickly and to ensure some wiggle room with your finances, look at homes that are under your maximum budget.

Do – Your Homework

As you are touring homes, make sure you ask a ton of questions. Bring a pad and paper with you and take note of the different features. How old is the roof? When was the heating and air unit replaced or serviced? Are double paned windows installed? What is the neighborhood like? Is a school system or healthcare services close by important to you? Go online and check out the neighborhood and close by conveniences like grocery stores, veterinarian clinics, and restaurants. Research is helpful with a lot of questions, but don’t be afraid to revisit the homes during different times of the day and explore the various access roads to get you there.

Don’t – Get Emotional

It’s easy to fall in love with the first home you see. Before you decide that is “The One”, tour at least three other homes before you make a final decision. Don’t just consider what your current needs are but think about the future. Are you going to start a family? Are you going to have to care for your parents? Make sure that the home is something that you can grow into over the years instead of making a decision because the wall color speaks to you or the sellers are including a hot tub.

Do – Enjoy The Ride

It’s such a tremendous feeling to know that you will soon own real estate. Even though there is a lot to consider and take in, this is an exciting milestone in your life. Buying your first house can be stressful,

and you will surely travel on a roller coaster of feelings throughout your experience, but ultimately you will come out with a long-term investment and a home you can call your own!

Don’t – Forget

Being a homeowner is a big responsibility. You are now responsible for property taxes, in some cases road maintenance, and of course all repairs to your home. There is no calling a landlord when your hot water heater leaks or your septic tank backs up. It is wise to not pour all of your savings into your down payment so that you have a rainy-day fund when your dishwasher stops working or your chimney needs to be swept.

Do – Select The Best

Choose Nathan Fitts & Team to help you select and secure your first home. As the number one team in Georgia, we love first time home buyers and have the experience you need and deserve to walk you through this exciting and sometimes overwhelming process. With a team of agents and the best brokers around, you can rest assured that we will go above and beyond to make your first home buying experience the best!

Don’t – Settle For Less Seriously, don’t settle for anything less than the best! Let Nathan Fitts & team show you our commitment to first class customer service. We are on your side and have your best interests at heart during this sometimes-challenging process. We commit to communicating with you, being responsive to you, and educating you on your first home purchase. We are happy to provide you with a list of references upon request.

Paws In The Park

Puppy love in Blue Ridge

One of our most favorite parts of living in working in the Blue Ridge area is that there is always so much to do! Whether you are looking for a full-time residence or a part-time home, Blue Ridge is an excellent community to consider and the Nathan Fitts & Team is more than happy to show you around this fall. The month of October is filled with festivals, music, and events for every interest. A purr-fect event for all of the four-legged family members takes place on Saturday, October 20th – Paws in the Park.

The morning kicks off with a Paws in the Park 5k run at 8:30 am. This relatively flat, 5k run is a USATF certified race that meanders through the scenic downtown streets of Blue Ridge. All runners, walkers, and well-behaved pups are welcome. The event benefits the Humane Society of Blue Ridge and features an excellent post-race meal, tons of giveaways, and if you register by October 6th, you’ll be guaranteed a race t-shirt. Early bird registration is $25 then the price increases to $30.

After the race, more fun continues at Paws in the Park! Fido will love participating in the pet parade, taking a picture with his favorite humans, or winning prizes from some of the many contests. Rosco’s humans can take advantage of pet education and demonstrations. There will also be a rabies clinic and micro-chipping available. The event takes place from 10 am until 2 pm. The parade begins a 10 am and kitties, llamas, alpacas, and goats are all welcome to join in on the fun!

Buying Rural

Urban vs. Rural

You found it! You and Nathan Fitts & Team have searched for weeks to find that perfect North Georgia Mountain home and, alas the stars aligned, the angels sang, and you are ready to put down an offer. But wait, before you are dazzled by a perfectly manicured yard and the most perfect shade of pale orchid walls, you should consider the differences between urban and rural living before moving to the mountains and sign on that dotted line.

Well Water or City Water?

Many of the homes nestled within the beautiful ranges of North Georgia are often not tied into the municipal water, but instead on a deep well system. While city water is consistent and held to health safety standards, the water that ultimately comes out of your faucet has been treated and purified with chlorine and fluoride. While it is delightful to have fresh mountain water from your own property, you alone are responsible for any maintenance, repairs, and quality of your H20.

Sewer System or Septic System?

Even though your mountain home may have the convenience of city water, unless it is located within the city limits, it is often not tied to a sewer system. Most homes are on a septic system to manage waste and water. As the most eco-friendly option and typically less expensive in the long run, you will have to regularly maintain your septic system and have it serviced every three to four years.

Private Road or Public Road?

There is nothing better than pulling onto your dirt road and knowing that you are almost home. However, that dirt road was most likely created specifically to access property and are often classified as private roads. Where public roads are maintained by the city or county, a private road must be maintained by the resident(s) that own property along the road. Maintenance can include grading, graveling or maybe even paving.

Electric Power or Gas Power?

Winter preparation is essential when you live in the mountains. If your home is primarily electric, make sure that you have a plan to keep you warm in the event of a power outage. If you have a wood burning stove or fireplace, make sure that you have stockpiled enough wood during the summer to get you through a cold winter. Installing a backup generator is always a wise decision and will often provide a return on your investment if you ever decide to sell your home. If your home is run on propane, you want to make sure to fill up your tank during the summer months when the rates are low and head into the winter months with your tank above 80% filled.

City Conveniences or Country Charm?

While Blue Ridge is a growing community, you will have to make some small adjustments in your daily routines. Unlike urban areas, in the mountains, it’s very realistic to live more than fifteen minutes away from the closest grocery store. However, you learn to plan ahead for your grocery trips and keep your pantry more fully stocked with staples. While you won’t find any department stores or a large variety of

national retail chains, you get the good fortune of knowing your local grocer, finding unique apparel in our quaint shops, and purchasing the freshest fruits and veggies from local farmers!

Whether you are building, remodeling, restoring, or just want to create the perfect flow of energy with seamless color palates, your designer is from the beginning to listen to you, guide you, and create an environment that is perfect for you. While there are many reputable designers in and around the area, our go-to company is hands down, Studio Trimble. Nathan Fitts & Team have worked with owner and proprietor, Cindy Trimble, for more than fifteen years on countless projects from conceptual designs, house prototypes, residential developments, neighborhood design, restoration projects, staging, and of course complete interior design projects.

Ms. Trimble began her career in Atlanta graduating with a bachelor’s in history of art & architecture and a minor in business from Emory University. After moving to the Northeast, she went back to school for environmental design and earned a second degree in interior architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design. Cindy launched her career working with architectural firms specializing in large scale commercial properties like hotels & convention centers, hospitals & medical offices, restaurants & nightclubs, churches, and retail malls all across the country. While working in product design for a large furniture company, she found herself back in the Atlanta area working on multiple projects for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

After the tragedy of 9-11, Ms. Trimble decided she no longer wanted to travel extensively and left her successful firm to retreat to the North Georgia Mountains with her son. Without a clear plan in mind, Cindy immersed herself into the Blue Ridge community by volunteering everywhere she could from the local Blue Ridge Community Theater, the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce, and various other charitable organizations. She has a knack for event planning and has been a key player in the startup of downtown Blue Ridge events like Light Up Blue Ridge, the Fire & Ice Chili cook off, and more.

As community members got to know her and realized the talent, energy, and passion Cindy brought to the table, requests for her design work began to grow. Soon, Studio Trimble opened its doors in downtown Blue Ridge, just two blocks from our current office. Never giving up her passion for community service, Ms. Trimble continues to participate in local events and served as the President of the Blue Ridge Business Association.

In fact, Studio Trimble is home to three loving dogs and six awesome humans working together in a comfortable, laid back atmosphere where their creativity can shine. Stop in, look around, meet the team, and consider Studio Trimble for your next interior design needs!

Meet Kristy Baugh!

Broker, Mother, Wife, Teacher

Classy and sophisticated, Mrs. Kristy Baugh brings energy, dedication, and a passion for customer service to Nathan Fitts & Team. With an unbelievable work ethic, Kristy is up before the rooster crows and once her feet hit the ground running, she’s ready to take on all the various challenges of the day with grace, humor, and compassion.

Kristy began her career in the real estate industry back in the early 90’s alongside her husband, Charlie, when they formed Baugh Homebuilders. A passion was sparked in her and she began to make a name for herself as an agent with Hutson Realty. The couple’s passion for real estate brought their family of three through Cherokee, Cobb, Forsyth, & Paulding Counties, just to name a few, prior to their transition to the beautiful North Georgia Mountains.

With a desire to always learn, Mrs. Baugh earned her real estate broker’s license and for fifteen years, studied all aspects of real estate law, increasing her experience and perfecting her knowledge. Through the years, Kristy has seen a lot of changes in the industry, but it’s just a cycle. What’s most important is service to her customers, because even if sales go up or down, her care for clients is never-ending. Kristy loves that every day is different especially because each day holds the opportunity to help others accomplish their goals. Her favorite challenge is a client that everyone else has given up on. Kristy pulls up her boot straps and goes the extra mile to think outside of the box and make their dreams come to fruition.

Kristy’s husband, Charlie, of 27 years and their daughter, Kimberly, are both in the real estate industry as well. In fact, Kimberly serves as a licensed assistant and marketing coordinator for Nathan Fitts & Team. This isn’t the first time that Kristy and Kimberly worked together though. The family of 3 transformed their family farm into Wolf Creek Estates & Stables Wedding & Special Events Venue while Kimberly was in college. The family loved working together to make countless couples’ dreams come true; however, their passion for real estate ultimately led them to real estate full time, and the farm went back to just housing their four-legged family members – 9 Saddlebred horses, 2 dogs, & a cat… and it will soon be available for your consideration. Stay tuned to an MLS near you!

When Mrs. Baugh is not working, mucking stalls, landscaping, repairing farm tools, or cooking family meals, she serves her heart strings with the youth and children ministries at their church. It’s important to Kristy to be able to make a difference in the lives of children by leading by example and she accomplishes that mission in spades. While this honest, dependable go-getter never lets the grass grow under her feet, she delights in time spent with family & friends, fun in the sun, and exploring new places.
