VALHALLA RESORT (HELEN)

Valhalla reigns as one of Helen’s newest accommodations, with a bit of modern luxury juxtaposing the Alpine charm of this North Georgia town.

THE RIDGES RESORT ON LAKE CHATUGE (HIAWASSEE)

Choose from standard rooms, suites, or villas at this mountain lake resort in Hiawassee. Villas range from 2-4 bedrooms with full kitchens and patios. The draw here is not the rooms, though, but the views. Enjoy a bonfire in the courtyard while watching the fog rise over Lake Chatuge.

Bring your boat to the full-service marina, or rent a kayak, canoe, paddle boards or pontoon boat while you’re there. Water activities include pier fishing (poles included) or soaking up the rays at the saltwater pool.

LITTLE ST. SIMONS ISLAND (GLYNN COUNTY)

I barely have words to describe how incredible a visit to this all-inclusive private island resort will be for your family! Little St. Simons Island is a Top 10 Georgia experience in my book; the natural beauty of the island puts me in a trance – it’s like a storybook.

Biking and beach time, shore fishing, boating on a skiff or kayak — and, oh! — the adventures with the naturalists! With a maximum of 32 guests at a time, you get plenty of one-on-one time learning about everything the island offers.

Meals are included, and the food prepared each mealtime is not your ordinary “hotel” food – it is DELICIOUS, creative and fresh! Many of the fruits and veggies come from the on-site USDA certified organic garden, which I recommend touring!

Five accommodation options dot the island, each with different benefits, from the affordable Hunting Lodge room, to the captivating Helen House.

Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, GA, is unmistakably one of the best romantic spots in the state.

There are lovely cottages, as well as traditional rooms in the Inn.  Our cottage came complete with a rolling fire in the fireplace and spectacular back porch. One of the best parts? The claw tooth tub with bubble bath!
