Some Features include:
70 +/- acres of old growth timber (95% hardwoods) with some acres cleared at 1500 feet (+/-) elevation, and the only privately held tract within the Chattahoochee National Forest's John's Mountain Wildlife area. Electricity and phone service already available on tract.
Entire property tract exposed to an unobstructed 50 (+/-) mile view east to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Real Estate Mountain property
This property is allocated at the same altitude as Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga Tennessee. Surveyed and purchased in 1985 as six separate tracts connected from seven plus acres to seventeen plus acres, could be divided more. All six tracts face east beautiful morning sunrise with fifty mile views by early afternoon the sun is over the mountain with
plenty of shade.
Can hunt on all seventy acres with most Georgia wild life. Zoned agriculture, the first twenty five top acres are unrestricted and gated. Great, great privacy! The remaining tracts are restricted to no trailers, no businesses, no junk yards in Horn Mountain retreat. Would like to sell
all as a whole.
The town is called Sugar Valley for all of the sugar maple trees. A very clean and beautiful valley, with population of about 350 of the nicest people in the country. Almost no crime, four churches, two small grocery stores and post office. A five-K and ten-K foot race every year. A very special place!

Suggested and Potential Uses for this Mountain Property
It is, indeed, difficult to suggest a form of land use to any potential buyer of raw land. Those who invest in raw land are men and women with a vision, and are well aware of a property's potential before seeing same.
Some of the suggested uses of this majestic enclave are:
- Corporate Retreat and/or Conference Center
Ample building space, tranquility, and easy access to the property, as well as the amenities make an ideal choice. There is an area already cleared, ready for a conference center, cabins, chalets or chateau's can be built on the adjoining acreage that would be within distance to a main center building. Calhoun/Gordon County offers private and public golfing, fishing, hiking, boating/canoeing, and a wealth of other activities for relaxation.
- Rental Cabins
The splendiferous views, tranquility, location, and access to recreational activities assure success for the investor/corporation that wishes to create a community of rental cabins on the property. The land should be able to support (studies are suggested) 1 to 4 cabins per acre, which should generate enough income to amortize any initial investment expenditure(s) within a short period of time.
- A Spiritual Renewal Center
An eastern exposure to catch each day's sunrise, the tranquil and breathtaking views, and the peace this natural setting generates would enhance anyone's spiritual renewal, no matter what their religious belief(s). The cleared acreage is an ideal setting for a center of worship, with cabins or dormitories built on the surrounding acreage with ample room for nature and hiking trails.
- A Retirement Community
A community of homes/cabins for those persons who have retired, but are not ready to give up life. The spectacular views and convenient access to recreation and other services can only enhance the initial investment.
- Private Community
All of the aforementioned elements make an excellent location for a small private community of primary, secondary, or vacation homes for the work weary refugees from Metro Atlanta or Chattanooga. It is basically view, view, view; and location, location, location, not to mention the easy access to the enclave.
There are numerous land use suggestions, or possibilities, but none is more important than the possibilities envisioned for this unique parcel by you, the buyer.
