We have stayed at Callaway Gardens twice. Once, just the two of us, the second time with our two oldest grandsons, 10, 7. We had reserved a room but when we arrived, the reception clerk upgraded us to a wonderful 2 bedroom cabin. He told us he did just because we brought our grandchildren. The Gardens have many things to... More

We go every Christmas Season for a wonderful family daytrip. During the day we visit all the gardens which are Christmas themed. The Butterfly Consortium is a must visit to see the butterfly decorated tree. When evening falls we get to enjoy the beautiful display of lights, festival food and shopping. What a fantastic day♡

We showed up for Labor Day Weekend and the place was "hopping" with an antique car show, a wake board competition, and a really cool Hot Air Balloon rally! We spent Sat., Sun., and Mon. at the "festivities". When we woke up Tuesday morning, it was QUIET! At least 95% of the guests had checked out so we "OWNED" this... More

We went to Callaway for the Hot Air Balloon show. We arrived early to allow the kids time to play in the water. Once they were tired we took them a shower and waited for the show to begin. There was live music and plenty of food options. It was another relaxing day at Callaway.

On the last day of August, my friend and I went to Callaway Gardens near Columbus particularly for the annual Balloon Festival. There's a special event fee of $25 per adult. We got there before 6 pm and saw a long line for the Balloon ride. The ride was $10 for adult and $5 for children. We waited for about... More

Beautiful visit...calm and relaxing! Would love to spend a week there! Great family attraction and we loved the Butterfly Exhibit. We stayed overnight at the Spa and my nieces had a wonderful time in the pool...Dinner was very enjoyable and the price was comparable to other similar properties.

The rooms were VERY DATED... More

The Discovery Center restaurant had poor management over Labor Day ! We were turned away after standing in the food order line for 30 minutes. Told the manager did not expect the crowd and the were behind.

For the vast area that Callaway Gardens has to offer, you expect to see more gardens and activity. The tree top adventure, bike ride, beach is the highlight for the garden. I would rather spend my time in stone mountain park which offers much more in terms of the activity. I wish they offer river cruise or the duck rides.... More
