Brewery
“You've probably enjoyed their award winning beers in bars all over the US, but they whip up a great home-style meal too. Sit on the bar side for an up close glimpse of their actual brewing operations while you enjoy their signature Goldrush Pork Green Chili.”

Brewery
“Newer to town is this contemporary brewery with solid beers and great atmosphere. The windows roll up for nice weather and it is a great spot to view the waterfall. There is also a full bar with craft cocktails, if beer is not your thing. ”

American Restaurant
“Delicious Italian and hands down great pizza pie. Georgetown is a great historic town located only about 15 to 20 min from the cottage. ”

Mexican Restaurant
“We love this local gem in Georgetown. It's 25 minutes west in a quaint mining town. The salsa's and margs are worth the drive and it's close enough for a quick trip and far enough into the mountains to feel worlds away from the city. ”

Restaurant
“Aside from Texas BBQ, this is one of the best BBQ spots we've been too...a variety of sauces help add to your meat selection, and the spicy slaw is yum! They also have a great outdoor patio that overlooks Fall Creek so you can watch the rafters drift by in the summer. Worth it for BBQ fans!”
