Location

Lyons Bridge Farm is located in the beautiful Appalachian foothills of northwest Georgia between Rome and Cave Spring in Floyd County. Rome, just ten miles from Lyons Bridge, is the largest city in northwest Georgia with about 36,000 inhabitants. With the Etowah and the Oostanaula rivers meeting here to form the Coosa River, the area has attracted travelers and settlers for centuries. It is a vibrant small city with a strong arts community, a passion for history, and exceptional recreational opportunities.

 

Cave Spring is a small town just three miles west of Lyons Bridge Farm and features a mix of specialty shops, restaurants, and a charming bed and breakfast anchored by a picturesque town square. The namesake limestone cave is open to visitors.

 

Cedartown is another small town less than eight miles from Lyons Bridge Farm. The downtown district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of the city's 1890s style architecture. The West Cinema Theatre, built in 1941 in art deco style, is still in use today.

 

The main entrance to Lyons Bridge Farm is located on Lyons Bridge Road SW off Highway 27 and is only 65 miles from Atlanta’s northern I-75/I-285 intersection. The property also has frontage on Jim Shack Road and Davis Road. Just north of Rome, the Richard B.
