Best gem mining experience in North Georgia!
The Lilly Pad Village, located in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area, (just eight miles out of Blue Ridge, GA.) is designed around a beautiful mountain setting with picturesque views and sounds of nature.
The Lilly Pad offers gem mining, mini golf and fishing for kids and adults alike. Vacation rentals are available also - see our website.
Imitated but never duplicated, the Lilly Pad Village offers precisely what you are looking for when visiting our beautiful mountains: A piece of Heaven, away from highways, parking lots, and traffic. It is a place of tranquility, restfulness, and positive energy. A destination for laughter and smiles where you can spend an hour or an entire day, leaving stress behind.
Why chose the Lilly Pad? Because we are different!
We offer our pristine property, our friendly staff, our quietude, our decks and picnic tables, our sociable pets, our flowers, and trees for the entire day if you wish. When you arrive, you will probably be greeted by Lucy, our outgoing boxer, who will lead you to the store. Our upbeat music will make you smile as you enter as will the friendliness of our staff. The Lilly Pad shop is the center of fun things that await you here at the Lilly Pad Village. This is where you select your activities, get information on hiking trails and local fun as well as find a variety of gifts, snacks and make friends. You will immediately start feeling stress slip away.
Our decks and picnic tables are free to use for our guests. Free wi-fi if you need it but you will not want to get ‘connected’. The views of the Lilly Pond are simply breathtaking; the breeze inviting and the sounds mesmerizing. Laughter from the mini golf course will make you smile as will the occasional visit from Lucy, Cat or Smutty.
