Four Weekend Getaways from Atlanta

by Kevin Smith Author

Sometimes we all need a break from the hum drum of our daily lives and to just head out of town. But when getting away for the weekend we don’t have a lot of time. If you live in Georgia, there are several weekend getaways from Atlanta filled with a memorable experience worth looking into that are only one to two hours away.

 #1 – Chateau Elan Winery & Resort – For the wine connoisseur or someone who just likes to sip the old vino, one hour from Atlanta is the Chateau Elan Winery & Resort. This 275 room resort features suites and villas with views of the vineyards. Tours of wine-making and wine-tasting gatherings are available. Just relax in the splendor of this resort, or take cooking classes or stroll through the wine market. There is a spa as well as a golf course with 63 holes.

 #2 – Mansion on Forsyth Park – Three hours outside of Atlanta is the Mansion on Forsyth Park in historic Savannah, Ga. Step back in time about a century into this Victorian mansion that accommodates 125 guests. The nearby Grand Bohemian Gallery features 400 pieces of art. The Mansion is also known for its musical jazz performances, and its range of pianists tickling the ivories on the classical grand Bosendorfer piano. Cooking classes are available featuring the best of southern cuisine or dive into relaxation at the Poseidon Spa.

 #3 – Partridge Inn – Two hours outside of Atlanta is the Partridge Inn in Augusta, Ga. A plantation converted into a hotel in 1892, this Inn features both rooms with modern or period-style furnishings. Spending a little more for a balcony room is worth the experience as the southern breeze brushes past the curtain into the room at night. Dining on the veranda is also memorable. Experience a bit of political history dining in the P.I. Bar & Grill which has hosted several presidential banquets. The Partridge Inn is also famous for its delectable Sunday brunch.

 #4 – Barnsley Resort – One last weekend getaway from Atlanta is one hour outside Atlanta named the Barnsley Resort nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. On the smaller side, as resorts go, this 87 room resort features the best in gourmet dining and golfing. A Jim Fazio championship golf course is known for some of the fastest greens in the southeast. The Resort also features guided tours through its signature sculpted heirloom gardens of blossoming flowers and trees and shrubbery. For outdoor enthusiasts, you can rent mountain bikes and explore the foothills or play tennis, as well as experience skeet shooting. A nearby museum features historic ruins and artifacts from the Civil War.
