Within North Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains resides a whimsical village of tiny homes that look as if they were made by hobbits or magical elves. However, a popcorn vendor turned Disney Imagineer is the mastermind behind this special place, and he also spent years crafting imaginative displays for Dollywood, Sixflags and Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. Now he spends his time in Blairsville, dreaming up unusual, colorful, Seussian structures to be added to the Sleepy Hollow Fairy Garden.

The stunning Enchanted Gardens are the main attraction, where artistry and supreme craftsmanship are swaddled in an array of vibrant ground cover and foliage. No fairy home is alike, and visitors can even crawl inside for a better look. Hidden hillside or situated boldly among bright flowers, visitors will see everything from tiny catty wampus shacks to storybook castles and treehouses.
The on-site shop offers a combination of take-home works of art and supplies for the suddenly inspired artist. If anything will spark creativity, roaming the majestic gardens will. Birdhouses fashioned after larger pieces at Sleepy Hollow tend to be the most popular inventory, so guests can add a bit of the same whimsy to their own yard.
Guests can come explore the fairytale land free of charge, just bring your camera and imagination. Grown-ups and kids both enjoy the artistry, detail and charm of this remarkable escape in one of the most gorgeous parts of Georgia. Keep in mind that the parking lot is small, so you may have to wait for a space—a small price to pay to step into a magnificent world of splendor and wonder. The store and gardens are open Monday through Saturday, 9:30am to 4:30pm, but are closed on Sundays and major holidays such as Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years’ Day.
