Every so often, it’s great to take a mini-vacation and leave all your worries behind. Maybe you can’t get away for an entire week, or maybe not even a whole weekend, but one unforgettable overnight stay may be just the ticket. Peppered throughout our lovely state are a few glorious, little known inns that will give you a night to remember. From the more rustic, charming spots to a few large and old fashioned, here are a few of the best inns we’ve found in our state:
1. Glen-Ella Springs Inn— 1789 Bear Gap Rd, Clarkesville, GA 30523
This quiet spot in Northern Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, is a great way to unwind and relax in the middle of nature. Rock back and forth in your porch chair and keep an eye out for deer grazing in the meadow.
2. Beechwood Inn – Bed Breakfast and Wine Cellar— 220 Beechwood Inn Dr, Clayton, GA 30525
Beechwood Inn is the perfect spot to get away for the evening with your partner. They source their food locally, have a wine cellar, and have beautiful rustic suites and cabins.
3. The Hamilton – Turner Inn— 330 Abercorn St, Savannah, GA 31401
This inn in Savannah may be a bit more well known that most on this list, but it still deserves loads of recognition. When an inn like this one retains all the luxury and Southern charm that this town had to offer, it’s absolutely worth checking out for an evening.
4. Lily Creek Lodge— 2608 Auraria Rd, Dahlonega, GA 30533
Lily Creek Lodge is filled with surprises around every corner. You wouldn't necessarily think there was a beautiful blue pool with a waterfall in the back from looking at it. Nor would you expect a full gourmet breakfast every morning, including the chance to eat that breakfast in their treehouse!
5. Chanticleer Inn Bed & Breakfast— 1300 Mockingbird Ln, Lookout Mountain, GA 30750
If you're going to stay at the Chanticleer Inn, make sure you go all out. Spend the extra to have breakfast delivered to your room, make sure you sit in their refreshing hot tub, and enjoy the outdoor fire pit on cool nights.
6. The Hearthstone Lodge— 2755 Hwy 282, Chatsworth, GA 30705
This cute spot in Ellijay, features all the best amenities a cabin in the woods would have. The inn sits on unspoiled forest land, in a natural mountain setting. You can even schedule a massage in their private spa to really take the relaxation to the next level.
7. Ashford Manor— 5 Harden Hill Rd, Watkinsville, GA 30677

8. The Lake Rabun Hotel— 35 Andrea Ln, Lakemont, GA 30552
Not only do you get a beautiful scenic view overlooking the lake, but you also have beautifully decorated rooms and a full gourmet breakfast in the morning. It's a beautiful place to getaway with a loved one, or even enjoy some time to yourself.
9. Paradise Hills Resort & Spa— 366 Paradise Rd, Blairsville, GA 30512
