Fodor's Expert Review Callaway Gardens Resort

17800 U.S. 27, Pine Mountain, Georgia, 31822, USA

Accommodations at this sprawling resort range from fairly basic motel-style guest rooms at the Mountain Creek Inn to fully furnished two- to four-bedroom luxury cottages and villas at the Southern Pine Cottages and Mountain Creek Villas, all of them with lovely panoramic vistas and verdant woodland garden settings. The gem of the resort is the four-diamond Lodge and Spa at Callaway Gardens with its comfortable hotel-style rooms, outdoor pool, on-site restaurant, and the award-winning spa, which offers a full range of services. A 10-mile paved biking and hiking trail meanders through the property. There's great fishing in 13 stocked ponds and an adventure zipline course, and the golf courses are famously impressive. Various meal and recreation packages are available. Your room key gains you access to the property's famous gardens from dawn until dusk.
