Getting caught up in the daily grind of the "real world" and your work can become extremely stressful, and we all need to escape from time to time. Where can you go to remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Weekend getaways in Georgia are ideal for any occasion, with fun and relaxing activities for everyone to enjoy.
A Romantic Trip for Two
Weekend getaways in Georgia are perfect for the couple who needs a break from the kids or to simply rekindle the flames of love. A stay in a luxurious cabin in the gorgeous northern Georgia mountains creates the perfect setting for cuddling and bonding together.
With cabins featuring lush amenities from a romantic fireplace, hot tubs and Jacuzzi baths, and the modern kitchen to create a sweet dinner for two, you may find yourself not wanting to leave the cabin all weekend! But if you do decide to venture outdoors, you may enjoy picnicking beside one of the many breathtaking Georgia waterfalls, taking a romantic walk through the forest, enjoying a carriage ride or boat ride for two, or even soaring above northern Georgia in a hot air balloon ride by Balloons Over Georgia.
Family Bonding Time
Many families use weekend getaways in Georgia to really come together and enjoy some family bonding time. There are a multitude of fun and family-friendly adventures to be had during your stay in one of our luxury cabins. To cool off, head down to Cool River Tubing Company for hours of lazily floating down the Chattahoochee River, talking, laughing, and splashing.
You may also be interested in taking a horseback tour through the Chattahoochee National Forest at Sunburst Stables. These customizable tours are great for riders of any experience level or age. You will choose your tour length which may include a trip past a miniature animal farm, fishing, or a picnic.
Families will also have a blast in Alpine Helen! The Alpine Helen Mini Golf Course features 18 holes of fun in a truly "out-of-this-world" setting. When you're done, the whole family will enjoy ice cream at the famed Scoop De Scoop Ice Cream Parlor.
And what better way to share some quality family bonding time than by spending an afternoon of fishing? Northern Georgia boasts a huge population of trout, ripe and ready for the catching. For those who may not be familiar with the sport of fly fishing, the friendly folks at Unicoi Outfitters in Nacoochee Village are ready to show you the ropes and even get you set up with a fishing license. Bring your catch home to the cabin and enjoy the fruits of your labor over dinner!
Fun Times With Friends
If you're looking for a way to escape with a few of your closest friends, northern Georgia is the answer! You and your crew will have a blast in our luxury cabins in Georgia, which feature game rooms and big screen TVs to complete the party. Outside of the cabin, you will all experience a true adrenaline rush when you visit Zip N Time zipline for a truly unique, ariel tour of the Nacoochee - Sautee Valley. For outdoor enthusiasts, try your hand at mountain climbing and kayaking for starters. You will also enjoy discovering wildlife and waterfalls on the many trails throughout northern Georgia.
Of course, if adventure is not what you are seeking for a weekend with the girls, there are plenty of other opportunities for low-key fun. Perhaps you would prefer antiquing , wine tasting, or spinning your own pottery in Nacoochee Village. There's truly something for everyone!
Weekend getaways in Georgia are perfect from September through October when you will enjoy the Southeast's biggest and most famous Oktoberfest celebration! Of course, the Helen area is hot spot for live entertainment featuring a wide range of delightful watering holes all year long.
