A Few Ways To Reignite Your Romance
Enlist A Change of Pace
Get away from your monotonous routine, weekends filled with chores, and the stresses of everyday life. A getaway will help the two of you recharge and remember what attracted you to each other in the first place.
Escape the Drama and Gain Privacy
Between the kids, office politics, noisy neighbors, and the family pet, it can be hard to remember the sounds of sweet nothings and nature. A romantic getaway in Georgia will help jog your memory.
When was the last time that you and your sweetheart did something for yourselves? When you spend your life dedicated to others, it’s important to make time for yourselves and receive something in return.
Use the Personal-Time-off Hours You Have Earned and Relax
Sure, your boss might want to give you or your honey the stink-eye when you request some time off, but that hard-earned PTO is yours, and you have every right to use it. If it seems like you spend all your time at work, your loved one deserves some extra time with you. (Plus, you will be the envy of the office.)
Rent a Luxury Cabin to Help Set the Mood
The Georgia Mountains, landscape, and wildlife are famously beautiful, but pitching a tent is hardly luxurious as many might not consider sleeping on dirt to be romantic. Secluded, romantic getaways in Georgia should always include a luxurious cabin in Helen, GA. Experience the opulence of a hydrotherapy spa hot tub on your private deck as you sip champagne, enjoy the view of a nearby waterfall and eat chocolate-covered strawberries and consider booking one of our inclusive sauna cabins. For a warmer setting, relax in the two-person jetted tub in your master suite. Then continue the getaway snuggled in front of the in-cabin crackling fireplace.
Things to Do To Reignite The Romance
When it comes to romantic getaways in Georgia, the charming town of Helen and the surrounding cities offer the ultimate experiences for couples. With so much to do, you will have to plan multiple return trips. Any of the following activities can help round-out your romantic vacation:
Romantic strolls in Georgia require only a few steps away from your cabin as there are hiking trails right out the back door. For a change in scenery, check out Anna Ruby Falls in the Unicoi National Forest. A twin fall forming from Curtis Creek and York Creek, access to Anna Ruby Falls is via a paved path, so you and your significant other don’t have to worry about strapping on your hiking boots.
However, if the two of you are outdoor enthusiasts and love a challenge, grab your boots, backpacks and a map of the historic Appalachian Trail. This favorite trail traverses the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest along the southern edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Along the way, you’ll find several side trails, trail shelters, and endless breath-taking views.

From a clearing near your cabin to the highest point in Georgia, the state has an unlimited number of places where you and your sweetie can enjoy a genuinely private meal for two. Romantic getaways in Georgia are as close as the wooded area in the back of your cabin. Take a short hike from your cabin and find a clearing near a creek or waterfall to enjoy a breakfast with fresh fruit or a lunch with your favorite sandwiches and artisan cheese. To see the sights, make your way to Brasstown Bald near the Richard B. Russell Scenic Highway. The highest point in the state, Brasstown Bald towers at 4,784 feet above sea level and provides you with a simultaneous view of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better place to enjoy a pleasant meal with an exquisite view of the sunset.
Wine Tasting Togetherness
If you can’t make it to the wineries of California’s Napa Valley, Oregon’s Yamhill County or the fields of Bordeaux, France, look no further than the North Georgia cabins. Your cabin rental places you near the Habersham Winery and Vineyards, which is one of the largest and oldest wineries in the state. Winning over 150 national and international awards, walk through the self-guided winery tour before sampling the fine wines in the tasting room.
If you want to tour the region’s wineries, hire a driver and head to the towns of Sautee, Dahlonega, Tiger, Jasper and Young Harris. While most of the towns have one vineyard, Dahlonega has three. Each winery is doing its part to put Georgia on the map as a place to find fabulous wines nestled in with Southern charm. A suggestion for a romantic night out is to visit the award-winning Wolf Mountain Vineyards and Winery in Dahlonega for an intimate dining experience and unique view of the beautiful landscape.

Pampering for Two
Schedule a couple’s massage with one of the area’s massage therapists. Helen is home to spas that practice different massage techniques. If you enjoy Chinese massage techniques, like reflexology, visit a foot-and-body spa that helps relieve stress and promote good circulation. Other spas offer services like aromatherapy, facials, manicures, and pedicures. If you don’t feel like leaving your cabin, seek the services of a masseuse who will come to you.
Enjoy a Warm Fire
Each luxury cabin has a fireplace that’s perfect for warming up, snuggling as you drink a glass of your favorite wine, and sampling delicious handmade chocolates. You may decide to keep the fire burning and sleep together cuddled under a blanket in front of the flames.
Soak in the Hot Tub or Jacuzzi Tub
Relax the evening away with your sweetheart in your cabins hot tub or jacuzzi. Or, if you’re early-risers, watch the world wake up as you begin your day soaking. There is no more soothing or romantic way to enjoy the scenery than from the cabin’s hot tub. And, many of the couples who stay with us will enjoy a day at the Habersham Winery in Nacoochee Village and then bring back a bottle of local wine or champagne to enjoy during their luxurious soak in the hot tub together.
Prepare a Romantic Meal
One fabulous way for couples to spend time together is preparing and enjoying a romantic dinner for two. There are a wide variety of specialty food stores and old-fashioned grocers in the Helen, Georgia area where you can pick up ingredients to whip up some delicious southern comfort food, or to prepare your sweetie’s favorite dish. Once back at the cabin, you can work with each other to cook a fabulous dinner in your private kitchen. We equip the kitchens in our cabins with modern appliances and the cooking utensils and cutlery that you need to wine and dine one another over a candlelight dinner. Weather permitting, you and your best girl or guy could opt to take your dinner out on your cabin’s patio or deck to watch the sunset or enjoy the scenery. If you choose a cabin with your private waterfall or stream, it creates a more romantic backdrop for your meal and time together.
Cuddle Up Together
A cabin is a perfect setting for cuddling! Our cabins include a living room area with a cozy couch that is perfect to cuddle on with your sweetheart to watch a movie on the cabin’s big screen TV. Of course, if you don’t feel like getting out of bed in the morning, you can curl up and watch television right from the comfort of your private bedroom, fully equipped with clean, fresh, and soft linens. You may also select a cabin with a fireplace which makes the perfect setting for curling up in front of a crackling fire and just talking the evening away as you enjoy a drink and some chocolate covered strawberries from one of the local sweet shops.
Play a Game
Did you know that you can even select cabins that come with game rooms and game tables? One great way to bring some fun and flirtation back into your relationship is to challenge your partner to a game of pool, Foosball, or ping pong. Don’t know how to play? You will bond with your sweetheart as he or she teaches you a new skill. You will enjoy hours of laughing and playing together as you try to best one another in a challenging face off.

Take a Hike
One of the most significant advantages of renting a cabin is that there are ample opportunities for romantic hikes through the vast timberland forests of northern Georgia. Just step outside of your cabin and pick a direction with your sweetie. As you blaze your trail, you will feel as though there is no one else in the world except you and your partner. Hand in hand you can explore all of the plant and animal wildlife indigenous to the area, and you may even come across babbling brooks and secret waterfalls. To add to the romance, take a picnic along with you on your hike.
