“Has it all and owners are awesome!!!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We were looking for a family friendly place to take the kids that didn't drain our pockets. We found that at The Lilly Pad Village. We did a package deal that included: Fishing, Putt Putt Golf and Gem Mining. The Putt Putt course was a challenge in that it is built into the terrain of the mountains. Boys had fun fishing in the pond and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the Gem Mining. What treasures we found :)

Definitely bring your camera, walking/hiking shoes. They have guided trails, but we didn't do it because our children are on the younger side.

Our visit lasted about 3 hours and we finished it off with a great freshly made Amaretto Latte.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

This was a quaint place and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We got the online package for gem mining and for on the mountain miniature golf. We loved sifting through the dirt in the bucket to find pretty gems. That was exciting and made us feel like we were back in the past. The miniature golf was okay... but a little hard since the courses were built on the side of a mountain and a few were slightly slanted. Still, a very pretty place to visit. We all had fun.

“Family friendly and great Amaretto Latte!”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

While the boys went off to play mini-golf and gem-mining, the baby and I sipped on yummy Amaretto Latte in the cozy lobby and had a nice chat with the friendly owner.

“Unique and nice!”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

It was out of season, but the owner was very nice to open up and he gave us some tourist info and drew us a map to a swinging bridge. That was worthwhile and fun! Right around the corner was the Toccoa River which is great (in season) for tubing, I hear! It was very beautiful and full due to the rains this year. The Lilly Pad has a huge fishing lake for fishermen, too.

“Awesome owners, down to earth”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Me and my boyfriend mini-golfed here, Hole 3 was ridiculously hard but the owner knows it and is planning on fixing it, haha. We really enjoyed talking to the owners, the lady was very nice and very open and welcoming. $14 for me and my boyfriend to mini-golf 9 holes, it was a good time!!! Lots of catfish in the pond. Didn't fish but just looked at 'em swimming around.
