My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary weekend getaway. We enjoyed the clean accommodations, the beautiful setting, the tasty breakfasts and the friendly owners. The close-by quaint villages, shops, wine tastings and waterfalls made our anniversary celebration one we'll never forget.

This is a wonderful place to stay and the owners are very friendly. Its a great place to visit many wineries and waterfalls. Lots to do in the immediate area and lots to see. Would definately recommend taking the time to go visit crane creek vineyard.

We planned this trip to the lodge, our first time there, for the weekend. The room was comfortable with a Jacuzzi tub and king size bed. The owners/ hosts are very friendly and interesting people. John and Joniver host a wine dinner every month catered by Chef Rob Rutunno where wine is paired with a five course meal. Excellent. Joniver... More

Stayed in cabin 22 in mid May. "Rustic" is the appropriate word. The place was roomy & clean, but very dated fixtures, furniture & flooring. The people were friendly & breakfast was very good. Did not take advantage of the wine tasting, but can highly recommend Yonah winery cave tour.

I booked this trip because I discovered their tasting room on the Unicoi Wine Trail. I fell in love with their Frolicking Faerie wines. The weather did not cooperate to let me go enjoy the hiking, but I still had a wonderful time. My room was one of their smaller ones, but still had a very nice king sized bed,... More

We are so excited to be part of the Unicoi WIne Trail, and the debut of our Frolicking Faerie wines last fall. They have been very well received and have found a way to travel home with many of our guests. I'm sorry Frolicking Faerie Isis was unable to join your entourage this time, but I'm sure she will find... More

My fiance and I needed to get away from the city and decided on a weekend getaway to the mountains. The Sautee area is so quaint and relaxing and there is so much to do in the area. We were not wanting for activities to fill our time and we enjoyed the time we spent at the lodge. We chose... More

There seems to be a common theme running through our reviews that often include the words "relaxing" and "so much to do" which to us, are the makings of a great get away. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to address your issue and resolve it to your satisfaction in a timely fashion. We take great pride... More

My husband and I decided to take a short trip to celebrate our anniversary and birthday. We did not want to have to travel very far for just a couple of dasy. We chose Sylvan Valley, barely two hours away, site unseen and without any referrals. We were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations, not to mention the individual... More

After reading mixed reviews about this lodge I was hoping to be able to come home and give a great review. No such luck! We arrived in after an 8 hour drive at 2:00, only to be very rudely told that check in is at 4. Ginera seemed very irritated that we were there. My husband asked if we could... More

Down to earth and friendly is my first impression of the couple who run this tucked away treasure in the mountains. If you love wine you will be thrilled you landed here first because Sylvan Valley has a wine tasting room with a vast array of local North Georgia Wines, including their own label. Ginevra and John are well versed... More
