A resort vacation offers an elegant escape from everyday life, much like using a horse-drawn carriage to flee a bank heist. Clear out your relaxation vaults with today's Groupon: for $169, you get a North Georgia Mountain Escape Plan for two (up to a $345 value) at the Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa in Young Harris. The Escape Plan consists of a one-night stay in a traditional guest room (upgrades available), breakfast for two, and your choice of two total resort activities.
Brasstown Valley's peaceful resort and spa lets busy city dwellers trade the stressful stratosphere of metropolitan hustle-and-bustle fumes for the crisp air of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Each senses-swaddling guest room in the rustic lodge centers on a grandiose den boasting a stone fireplace, panoramic views of surrounding nature, and ornate chandeliers crafted from antlers shed upon promotion from freelance buck to full-time stag. The resort hosts plenty of activities, so pamper your bone-hampers with a 50-minute massage or mani-pedi treatment at the Equani Spa, a relaxing space furnished with natural timber, warm hearths, and hand-crafted Cherokee accents. Nature-lovers, meanwhile, can place valentines in the eaves of their coniferous crushes from the saddle of a horse on two-hour horseback rides through the trails of Brasstown Valley or chip and drive their way through 18 holes on the resort's scenic golf course, which is expertly maintained and elegantly framed by mountain streams and wildlife preserves. Couples can purchase multiple Groupons for extended stays and greater activity opportunities to avoid endless debates over the pleasures of ponies vs. pedicures.
