One of the most appealing mountain lodges in Georgia is part of the state park system and features panoramic views over the mountains from the massive glass-windowed lobby. All rooms, in fact, have mountain views except for three that overlook the woods. The decor isn't fancy, but you can pay far less here than at a private country inn. The park also has 14 cottages for rent and a restaurant. Weekend nature and family programs are presented in the lobby.
