Chestatee is a small town in northern Georgia in Forsyth County. It is west of the confluence of the Chestatee River into the Chattahoochee River. Chestatee was originally a Cherokee settlement called "Atsunsta Ti Yi." The word "Chestatee" is roughly translated to "pine torch place," or "place of lights." There is also a resort-style golf community located in the area, nestled along 2.5 miles of the Lake Sidney Lanier shoreline. Located just off Georgia 400, the community of Chestatee offers many amenities such as the Nightfire Lodge, a junior Olympic-size swimming pool, children's pool and playground, and a lighted tennis court. There are over three miles of hiking/biking trails, and Lake Lanier has a private marina for docking your boat, and offers covered or uncovered boat slips. An 18-hole, par 71 Denis Griffiths golf course has bent grass greens and Bermuda Fairways and breathtaking views as a backdrop. A few of the other advantages to living or visiting Chestatee include a golf shop, practice facility, lakeside pavilion with stone fireplace and picnic tables, community square and bandstand, croquet court and Golf Club House and restaurant with banquet facilities.
