About Your Inn Keepers
Opening Racers’ Retreat Bed and Breakfast was a life-long dream for us, and we can’t wait to share the dream with you.
The location of the Inn (directly across from the only entrance/exit to the new Atlanta Motorsports Park - AMP) drove our decision to name it what we did. AMP is a world class facility designed by famed Formula One racetrack designer Hermann Tilke. It also offers an exciting Kart track (the only amenity of the Park open to the public) providing the most elevation change of any track of its kind in the world. Racing comes naturally to the folks around here. Nascar originated right here in Dawsonville. The Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, located in City Hall, has a great museum depicting the colorful history of our contributions to the sport.
When Richard, a founding member of AMP. and I realized we could combine his love of racing with my dream of opening a Bed and Breakfast in a quiet, peaceful setting, we jumped at the chance and moved to Dawsonville. Dawson County has quickly become home to us, and we have enjoyed exploring its many exciting adventures. We have a Deer Park, a Kangaroo Rescue, a Pumpkin Farm and horseback riding all within minutes of the Inn. You can also fish and stroll the shores of the Amicalola River. And don't forget the North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall! It's the largest one in Georgia. Beyond our borders are many sightseeing attractions. Amicalola Falls, Gibbs Gardens, the wineries of Dahlonega and Historic Helen, just to mention a few, are but a short drive away.
Before you take off to conquer North Georgia, we invite you to fill your cup at the coffee bar and enjoy pre-breakfast chatter in our cozy gathering room. A large dining room overlooking the wooded landscape centers around a banquet-style table where a full, hot breakfast is served. Tried and true recipes collected over the years grace the table with everything from simplistic to complex, all created almost exclusively from scratch. Now go, conquer! See all that our amazing area has to offer. Upon your return to the Inn, you will find afternoon refreshments served daily in the bright and inviting lobby. Finally it's time to settle on the gracious front porch and savor the moment. Stories have been told and memories have been built on porches like this for generations. We invite you to build your memories at Racers' Retreat. We look forward to meeting you!
