I had never been to this part of the country and was in search of some rest, relaxation and great food. At the Dalonega Resort & Spa, I found all three plus beautiful scenery, exemplary service, spa and a true getaway unlike any other I have ever experienced.
This is an incredibly beautiful area which offers peace and tranquility. You can be as detached as you want but still have the comforts of small town living and wineries nearby. The resort itself is immaculate, decorated beautifully and in such a comfortable and welcoming way.
The grounds are beautiful, rolling hills with views of beautiful land. The wrap around porch has plenty or rocking chairs with blankets to relax with on crisp days.
The food: wonderful! You can tell you are having a meal cooked to order, just for you with such care and grace. Incredibly delicious and healthy, truly homemade. Hot tea is available at all hours and the selection of Yogi teas is unreal.
Rooms: we stayed room #12 in the west wing and it was incredibly charming. Cindy bed, no TV, plenty of storage and great views. Bathroom is a little small but all needed amenities are provided. The carpet could have used a cleaning and the walks are pretty thin (guest in room next to us snored like a Mack truck and we could hear it) but it was ok. Wonderful a/c unit.
The standout star of our stay was Sasha. She took the time to serve our breakfast and give us a tour of the grounds, including a tour of the cottage and private cabins. Pretty amazing! She was very professional, gracious and courteous. We also were very impressed with Gabrielle and Sandy. Kudos to all!
We will definitely be back, can't wait!
