Experiencing the outdoors during our High Season months at Fire Mountain is the ultimate luxury provided in the Highlands. July is the hottest month of each year in the Highlands, and the average mean temperature is 67 degrees. The air feels like velvet on your skin. Add to that no humidity and insects, and you feel that you are basking in the ultimate experience on top of the world. As a result, alfresco dining on top of Fire Mountain is one of the many ultimate experiences provided at our boutique mountaintop resort. The Cloud 7 view decks are located adjacent to Cloud 7 Restaurant and Sky Bar & Lounge. Once you find your perfect spot on the view decks, you will not want to leave! Fire Mountain’s new social center for our guests to enjoy and experience relaxed all-day dining starting at Noon each day.

You can catch and enjoy a sunset from in front of a bonfire! Every Saturday evening, we light a large bonfire on top of Fire Mountain starting an hour prior to sunset that will lift your heart after your evening meal, weather permitting, of course. Bring a blanket and your favorite refreshment, and enjoy the bonfire into the evening hours. Sculptor, Kevin Pind, created the fire pit in 1996, which is made from large stones found and retrieved from different parts of Fire Mountain. One of the most popular events each week at Fire Mountain!

One of the most popular areas at Fire Mountain! Located in the main lodge building of the Fire Mountain Inn, this is a wonderful indoor area for lounging, relaxing, reading, enjoying a fire in the large hand-laid fireplace made of native stone, taking in the views that go out over fifty miles to the west and also out to views to the east that go out to the top of Rabun Bald (the second highest peak in Georgia) and also to the top of Scaly Mountain (the second highest peak in this area of Western North Carolina). This large area is filled with overstuffed slip-covered couches, a significant book library, and a photography book collection to enjoy, along with tables and chairs for those card and board games that some folks love to enjoy. This wonderful area opens up to private decks on the sunset and sunrise side of the main lodge building of the Fire Mountain Inn that is furnished with outdoor cafe tables and chairs for those that desire to slip out and enjoy the outdoors directly off of this magnificent space in the Fire Mountain Inn.
