Fodor's Expert Review Barnsley Resort

597 Barnsley Gardens Rd., Adairsville, Georgia, 30103, USA

This award-winning resort features luxurious and comfortable accommodations, a brand-new 55-room inn, championship golf course, a boutique spa, elevated on-site cuisine, horseback riding, the Beretta Shooting Grounds, and miles of nature trails. Located just 20 miles from Rome, Barnsley Resort is a relaxing getaway. The grounds and gardens were part of an 1840s estate built by Godfrey Barnsley, a wealthy British cotton factor. Barnsley was obsessed with creating ornate gardens for his wife, who did not live to see the home's completion. The mansion lies in ruins, creating a romantic backdrop for the gardens. You can learn more about the mansion and fascinating history of the Barnsley family at the adjacent museum, housed in the mansion's former kitchen and servant's quarters.
