Our large family gathered at a new location to join a native old-time Georgia family by marriage and could not have been more pleased to stay and party at Callaway Gardens. Wonderful cottages: make sure that you reserve cottages close to the main lodge well in advance: the food, bars and service at the main lodge for several parties was... More

Callaway Gardens is a beautiful, serene place to spend a day or a week. We were so impressed with how lovely the property is kept and the gardens maintained. I especially loved roaming through the greenhouses and the butterfly area. We didn't do any of the resort activities, just walking through the gardens and driving the many miles of roadway... More

We just need somewhere to go that wasn't to far from the Atlanta area for the weekend. Pine Mountain was just ideal. It is only about 1 hour from my home in Fairburn, Ga. I had heard about the Morpho Butterfly month in September and really wanted to see it. They were truly spectacular and well worth the visit. We... More

This is an Oasis - a really wonderful garden / park with so much to see and do for all the family. I liked the butterfly conservatory as well as the plant conservatory. The chapel was very nice and peaceful. The bike paths as well as the overall beauty and tranquility is fantastic.

Fabulous family resort loaded with activities and great food. We really enjoyed all the Educational classes and even got to see the FSU Flying Circus rehearsing. Get the package that includes bicycle rentals and ride through the magnificent garden. Breathtaking and genuine. A family's enduring vision.

Came for Morpho Butterfly month. They are spectacular and worth the visit by themselves, but there are plenty of summer flowers still in bloom in and around the park into the middle of September. As an added bonus, the summer heat has somewhat abated. We enjoyed also enjoyed the Birds of Prey Show, which brought out different owls and hawks... More
