No matter what kind of house you live in, if you tuck your house far enough into the trees, Nature streams in 24/7.
Want a home with a mountain view? Check Habersham, White, Rabun, Clayton and other surrounding counties. If you don't get too far up in the mountains winters are mild. Summers are also cooler than areas with high humidity, and much cooler than Florida.
