Brasstown Valley Resort is a popular getaway for those visiting the North Georgia Mountains. It’s also close to Young Harris College, making it a convenient stay for those in town to tour the campus. It is also only two hours from Atlanta and Chattanooga, so it’s a popular spot for weekend getaways, near the North Carolina state line.
Staying at Brasstown Valley Resort
There are 134 guest rooms at Brasstown Valley Resort, which vary in price and style. Rooms in The Lodge, where I stayed, start at $200 per night for king and double beds. Rooms at The Cottage are in the same price range and each have their own mountain motif with kitchen appliances for longer stays.
All guest rooms come with flat-screen televisions, free WiFi, coffee makers, and microwaves. There are also five suites. Guests can also stay at the spa, which has a rooftop deck, flatscreen televisions, and fireplaces.
Activities and Amenities at Brasstown Valley Resort
There is no shortage of activities on the 500-acre resort, but there is a championship 18-hole golf course that has hosted LPGA tournaments. The 7,500 square foot Equani Spa opened in 2008, inspired by the Native American history of the region. Here, guests have access to the hot tubs and steam rooms after their treatments.
There are also five miles of hiking trails, tennis, fishing, horseback riding, and hunting. The hotel also has an outdoor pool and easy proximity to the Appalachian Trail. Beyond the trail, there are many nearby hikes for all experience levels.
The resort is also a short drive from the area’s best wineries. Crane Creek Vineyard is the closest to Brasstown Valley, with incredible views and an event venue. Hightower Creek Vineyards in Hiawassee is also nearby. Both offer tastings.
Dining at Brasstown Valley Resort
The Dining Room at Brasstown Valley Resort has mountain views, making “staying in” a good option. The restaurant offers a breakfast buffet and many selections throughout the day, along with changing nightly selections like Friday night seafood and Sunday brunch.
Brassies, the casual restaurant, keeps seasonal hours. It has casual bar food like wings, fish tacos, chili, and burgers, best enjoyed overlooking the golf course. And of course, you can always choose room service if you want to stay bundled up.
If you’d rather venture outside of the resort, there are some restaurants nearby. Enrico’s Italian is a great spot for dinner, with favorites like pizza and pasta. Brother’s at Willow Ranch is a laid-back steak restaurant, while Sand Bar is a casual bar with lakefront views.
