So much fun! Great conversation with lovely and knowledgeable staff; and bonus pet therapy with Lucy, it was a BLAST!!! Found great treasure that we can't wait to put into the rock tumbler, and also found beautiful gems to wire wrap!! We sat under a nice shelter with fans blowing, in a wooded area. Very comfortable in the heat of North Georgia summer. Great place!! Can't wait to go back! I Highly recommend Lilly Pad Village.
Highly recommend stopping by the Lilly Pad Village when you are near Blue Ridge. When we visited we were warmly greeted by the gentleman who was polishing the gems. In the office we received exceptional customer service and directions on where the activities were located. Our assistant with the gem mining identified the gems the the kids found. The excitement and education from the staff was outstanding! Our family had a wonderful time and plan to visit again soon!
