My wife and I visited The Lilly Pad Village during a weekend stay in Blue Ridge, and while the miniature golf and gem mining were fun activities, I think the most memorable aspect of our experience with this establishment was our interaction with the proprietor, Geza. We visited on a slow May day and were about the only folks there... More

Stopped by for the gem mining with the family. We paid for 2 (about $26). They have us two massive buckets to sift. I ended up grabbing an extra sifter so we could get done faster. After about 30 minutes, we ended up with about half a sandwich bag full of rocks worth keeping. We had fun and the girl... More

Our family of 5 adults and 4 kids under the age of 10 had a wonderful time at the Lily Pad Village! We were there on a day when hardly anyone else was there, and we thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, mountain atmosphere. The mini golf was fun, and we enjoyed our picnic on the deck. But the kids enjoyed the... More

So many activities here, putt-putt golf in a beautiful natural wooded setting; really unique and fun. Fishing for the kids; gem mining, etc. Even cabins nearby to stay in! Toccoa River right there. Also, the owners were really nice couple.

This isn't a large place but the people were so friendly and helpful. The boys did the gem mining as well as mini-golf and fishing. Although they didn't catch anything, it kept them occupied for a long time and they had fun.

We decided to visit during spring break, it was not too crowded. My two daughters fished and one caught a fish and the other didnt. We paid 30$ to fish all day and that included the bait and rods. We decided not to gem mine or play puttputt so I cannot comment on those. Staff VERY friendly.

Family enjoyed the putt putt golf and especially, the gem mining. Found some great treasures. Daughter begged to go again but had to head back home. Will be back!

We had visited Lilly Pad about five years ago for gem mining and decided to bring our friends there. They now have a seperate building for customers and the mining area is partially covered for shade or rain protection. They also have a fun mini golf course.

The kids loved this spot. Very friendly employees who made sure the kids had fun. We only did the gem mining there... It was cold and rainy but the gem area is covered with heaters.
