Warm Destination to Escape Winter

Brrr! It’s still cold outside! It’d be nice to think that once the holidays end, things will start warming up, but according to the calendar, there are still several weeks of winter to go. Basically, with spring still a couple of months away, you have no choice but to get away for the weekend and surround yourself with natural beauty. When it comes to place to go on vacation in Georgia, it’s hard to beat the amenities of Callaway Resort & Gardens.

Curl Up by the Fire

If there’s one way to get over those winter blues, it’s by curling up by a warm fireplace. Spend a weekend spreading out and relaxing in one of their lovely cottages. Nestled within the Georgia woodlands, each private cottage has two bedrooms and ample living and dining areas. Perfectly sized for families that want escape the city, you can make a home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen, then relax after dinner with a glass of wine by the toasty fireplace. You can also splurge on a luxurious villa. Set amid a secluded section of Callaway Resort & Gardens’ vast wooded property, these beautiful and spacious villas feature 2, 3, or 4 bedroom units with fully equipped kitchens, and enormous living spaces. Bring a little warmth to your winter by setting up an epic game night by a raging fire!

Getaway to Nature

You know what makes a fireplace even better? A hike in the woods beforehand. It’s true! Test this theory by putting on your walking shoes and exploring the 10 miles of hiking and walking paths that meander throughout Callaway Resort & Gardens. Stop at all the scenic points along the way and take in the epic natural beauty of the forest. After your walk, stop by the lodge to begin the warming up process with a soak in the hot tub and a cocktail at the bar, then return to your cottage or villa for some quality fireplace time.

There’s So Much to Do!

There’s no better way to stay warm than to keep yourself busy, and that is not a problem at Callaway Resort & Gardens. With the Treetop Adventure & Zip Lines, two full golf courses, a luxurious spa, and several eating and drinking opportunities, there’s no shortage of things to check out. While you’re at it, don’t forget to stroll the actual gardens. They are extraordinary! There are plenty of events as well such as the exciting and educational Birds of Prey Show, the Critter Encounter, and every weekend there are moving organ concerts at the Memorial Chapel. If you like butterflies (and who doesn’t like butterflies?), you simply must visit the Day Butterfly Center to see the largest collection of tropical butterflies in North America. Monday through Friday there’s a Butterflies 101 class where you can learn enough about butterflies that you’ll become something like an expert. If a tropical butterfly pavilion can’t warm you up on a cool winter’s day, nothing will.

When you stay at Callaway Resort & Gardens, it’s up to you to determine what kind of winter vacation you want. Is it a family vacation? A romantic getaway? A golf or spa escape? Everything is possible at Callaway Resort & Gardens. Plan your own vacation getaway in Georgia today!
