4.5-star luxury hotel in the foothills of northeast Georgia has its own winery, plus seven restaurants and championship golf courses
Hotel at a Glance: Chateau Elan
Embracing both California-grown grapes and the Southeast’s native muscadine, Chateau Elan has become Georgia’s largest wine producer. The 3,500-acre estate bottles more than 20 styles, including the tropically flavored muscadry and a peppery merlot aged in French oak barrels. Visitors can learn more about the winery during guided tours and themed tastings.
French country style: The 4.5-star hotel’s guest rooms are outfitted with soaking tubs and touches such as wingback chairs and upholstered bed frames.
Seven restaurants range from gourmet American food to bar bites.
For sporty types, the property has a Stan Smith-designed tennis center and championship golf courses.
Resort life: Guests can unwind during a deep-tissue massage or winery ritual treatment at a luxurious spa.

Braselton, Georgia: Hiking and Boating in North Georgia Mountains
Set in the foothills of the Blue Mountain Mountains, Northeast Georgia is known for its rugged outdoors and scenic beauty. Frommer’s calls it one of “the best-kept travel secrets in the South,” noting its vast open park spaces and purple-hued peaks. The tiny town of Braselton, located about 50 miles northeast of Atlanta, is a gateway to some of the region’s top recreation spots. Fort Yargo State Park offers 20.5 miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails, as well as a 260-acre lake with swimming, fishing, and boating. Lake Lanier is also a popular boating spot, and it’s near a ziplining course and a water park.

Elegant escape just an hour north of Atlanta, perfect Valentine present. Spa and massage were the best. Purchase a 50 minute massage and get use of spa amenities for no extra charge for the day. Do two exercise classes before my massage...the best teacher. The restaurant at the spa serves lovely light and healthy food with a mimosa at brunch.
