We toured the garden, and it definitely seems like the place to be when the Rhododendron are in bloom. The garden was a little overgrown when we visited, but it is a nice walk, and offers pretty views of Lake Chatuge.

This would be an excellent place to stop during the rhododendron are in bloom but nothing to see when not in bloom.

Beautiful year round but spring is the best! Gorgeous colors on well kept walkways for you to enjoy with a leisure stroll.

I have been here several times over the years. It is a nice "garden" on the side of a hill overlooking Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee and adjacent to the Ga. Mtn Fairgrounds. path winds down through the many plantings and then back across and up to the parking area. There are restrooms on site and a small garden shop that... More

You can definitely get a cup of tea and sit for hours on one of the benches enjoying the sound of water from the lake hitting at the shore

In the Spring, the Rhododendrun Gardens are spectacular. We make the trip there annually, and if we have to miss a year, it doesn't seem as though we've experienced Spring at all!

What a nice afternoon! I went by myself and enjoted the beauty of the blooming rododendrums. I went in early May and just missed the peak of the color, but it was still beautiful. The paths wonder through beautiful gardens and down along Lake Chatuge. Don't miss this Sprig event.

This has been put together exceptionally well for Hiawassee. The axaleas and rododendron are beautiful now. It's so peaceful to walk the pathways.

We visited a week before the official opening and were generously allowed to tour because the dogwood and azaleas were at their peak while the rhododendrons were just starting to bloom. The plant material and walking trails were beautiful. The donation and "in memory of" signage was distracting but the trails were easy to walk and everyone would enjoy the... More
