Keeping with our Mother’s Day theme this month, there are some really great weekend getaways that Mom is sure to enjoy. A relaxing time away with or without family is always called for. How about a lovely winery visit complete with Spa ?? Sounds like the perfect little getaway to us…..

Did you know about all the wonderful local Wineries in Georgia ?? Well in the past 10 years or so since the alcohol laws changes, small boutique wineries have been popping up in the North Georgia area specifically in the region of Helen, Jasper, Blairsville, Hiawassee, Blue Ridge and many more – a link to the map of the wineries is HERE We’ve visited a few including Engleheim, Habersham, Chateau Elan and Montelucci, and Dervila and I went up to Paradise Hills Resort yesterday and visited with the wonderful owners Bobby & Ilka to chat about some European Wine Cruise options and find out all about their Winery.

In addition to the Vineyard and Winery, the resort has 17 beautiful mountain cabins for rent ranging from 1 – 4 bedrooms. (some pet friendly) Here are some extra amenities available during your stay.There is state of the art Spa there with services available including massage, facials, mineral salt bath, European Sauna, and many more. (Great packages for a Girl’s Weekend getaway)

There are wine tastings, live music on the Weekends and they have a covered and outdoor event space where they regularly host Weddings, reunions, retreats and other celebrations.

There’s lots of outdoor activities in the area along with festivals or you can just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of this mountain retreat. And….. let’s not forget about the wine – really delicious – my personal favorite is the Sunset Rose – yum.

I’m definitely going to check this out for a Girl’s weekend get away.
