After finding the Beechwood Inn through TripAdivsor, we booked a one-night stay for the Natahala Suite. We arrived Saturday afternoon and were graciously shown around by David. The place is lovely, with a terrific view of the North Georgia mountains from the front porch (a great place to relax).
The Natahala Suite was perfect for our stay, with a comfortable queen bed. Because the evening and morning temps were dipping into the 50s, we took advantage of the floor heater that made the room toasty warm. The suite also had a private nook just outside with a loveseat to enjoy the sunset.
Be sure to take advantage of David and Gayle's extensive wine cellar. They are experts! We purchased a very affordable pinot grigio to enjoy in our suite that was just right, and they kindly provided an ice bucket and glasses.
Breakfast was delicious, with blueberry stuffed French toast. It was a perfect start to the day. Afterward, we wandered around out front and sat on the porch to enjoy the view.
We hope to return in the spring. It was a wonderful escape from Atlanta!
