Are you in need of a little "you" time to decompress and rejuvenate yourself? Although it may seem counter intuitive, a trip to the north Georgia mountains may be just what the doctor ordered. Despite the fact the mountains offer rugged outdoor activities for those looking for adventure, those same mountains are also a retreat for those who need to remove the stress from their lives, relax, and unwind. The greater Helen area alone boasts a variety of luxurious spas and lush accommodations for individuals who just need to get away from it all. Here's a look at how to completely renew your mind, body, and spirit in northern Georgia.

Imagine yourself enjoying a glass of local wine while listening to soothing music and taking a long, hot bath in your own private Jacuzzi. If you prefer, you can watch the sunset from a gently bubbling hot tub that is solely yours for your stay. Curl up by the fireplace with a great book, or just enjoy watching TV from the comfort of a plush and spacious king-sized bed. The possibilities are limitless.
