    I’m really happy to find this article. I’m always amazed at people who are bon vivant and wine connoisseurs to go on certain space just to have excellent wine. I didn’t know that Georgia had a wine tradition, and that’s an excellent discovery for me. I knew about France or Portugal, but Georgia needs to be discovered. Thanks for this article and you gave me the idea to come in one of these wineries!

    I want to visit the Georgia mountains so much after reading this article! I had no idea there were so many different wineries in the area you could stay overnight at! I could seriously envision a 2 week vacation in the area trying each one to decide on a favorite lol! Seriously though, there are so many options and styles there rally is a place for everyone there. If I could only choose one, I would definitely stay at the Blue Ridge Treehouse at the Bear Claw Vineyards. It just looks really incredible and interesting, plus I have not been in a treehouse since I was a kid. I am sure I could get some amazing pictures there while I was enjoying the wine!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Randi, The North GA vineyards are some of the most scenic locations in the area and lots of fun to explore. 

      The Blue Ridge Treehouse at Bear Claw Vineyards offers a unique combo experience with the modern treehouse right next to the vineyard winery. Enjoy!

    Georgia is more than just craft beer and moonshine. The Peach State has its fair share of wineries, especially clustered around the North Georgia mountains. Muscadine and fruit wines are produced as well as well-known varietals. But you didn’t really visit a winery unless you photographed it, right? my first experience was soo much fun.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Emmanuel, It would definitely be hard to visit and not take a photo in these scenic mountain locations. So glad to hear that you had a great first experience – we hope to see you back again soon! Cheers!!

    Thank you for the insightful compilation of this beautiful vineyard wineries . It really makes it very hard for one to make a choice. But if I have to choose I will go with the big ridge tree house . The serenity that comes with being surrounded by those trees is truly priceless.  Would also like to try the Rustic cabin. Thanks again .

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Bogadi, I agree that any of these vineyards make a fantastic destination choice! Your favorites of the Blue Ridge Treehouse and the Rustic Cabin are probably the most unique choices — you can’t find unique places like these just anywhere and they would make for a very memorable vacation destination.

  5. Sasha says:

    So happy to have come across your post. This comes at the right time actually, just as the weather is getting better and we are approaching summertime. I live in Canada and every year I plan to do a cottage trip with either my friends or family and this post really gives me the push to do so more. 

    I am amazed to see so many options available in Georgia and would love to visit sometime! However, I was just wondering if these awesome places you have listed also have free wi-fi available?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sasha, Most rental homes that I find do offer wifi as a standard amenity, but it’s always smart to double-check with the location to make sure before you book your reservation.

  6. NoBossExperience says:

    I live in Canada and I have to admit that I have thought of visiting many place in the United States. But never in Georgia. No doubt, your article is opening my eyes. I love the Blue Ridge Treehouse.  What the beautiful place. I’m thinking about organizing a trip with my friends, so we can enjoy that great view near the water. Thanks for your beautiful post, Alyce.

  7. Fatoumata says:

    Thanks for sharing. Wow really nice cottages. I really like the Elohi cottage. Its huge and perfect for a big family. I also liked that it’s isolated perfect from any noice and disturbances. 

    Have you visited one of these cottages before? When spending the night there or a weekend are there any other activities families can do?

    We are planning a family trip in the near future, hopefully everything goes back to normal. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hello! I have stayed at one of the North Georgia vineyards and it was a wonderful experience. There are wine tastings, wine tours, and restaurants at many of these vineyards. Just beyond the vineyards, you can explore all kinds of family fun too!

  8. Kathy Lindroth says:

    I’m working on plans for a group (24-26) trip that would feature gardens in Georgia. I’d love to include a night in this wine area. Would you suggest staying in Dahlonega or another town? Are there any gardens I should look at to include? I figure we will move on to Athens and the Botanical Gardens there. Also, would you happen to know of any tour agent in Georgia who specializes in this type of tour, I’d love to talk to them. Thank you!

  9. Andy says:

    What a delightful reminder of our last trip abroad when we went to Tuscany. I guess it never occurred to me that we might be able to have a similar experience here in the US. I am guessing though that since air travel has been difficult during the pandemic demand for these places must be through the roof. I was very inspired by the Treehouse and I see that the same company has other treehouses in Georgia for rent as well. I will never forget the experience when I visited the US for the second time when I was still living in Europe on a trip with a group of work colleagues. We were invited to dine with the owners of a vineyard in California. It was a delightful and unique experience. Best regards, Andy

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Andy, you would probably love staying on-site at Montaluce Winery in Dahlonega. There are entire villas for rent (social distance is naturally built-in!) and the Montauce Restaurant Dahlonega GA offers reservations for their top-floor Tuscany Room that includes the best views at the mountain vineyard.

  10. Mike says:

    Hello there! I have not really thought about visiting wineries before, but these Georgia winery hotels and cabins seem like a great place to relax and enjoy life. What better place than a location with nice scenery and away from the busy, stressful city life though! The images you provided look really nice and it doesn’t seem too expensive. Perhaps when this COVID-19 is calmed down a bit more, I may check these places out someday. Thanks for this!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Mike, The North Georgia wineries lodging in the mountains is about as scenic and as relaxing as you can get! Thanks for checking out these great Georgia mountain vineyards!

  11. Kelly says:

    You had me at hot tub XD

    It’s also a lot cheaper then I imagined it would be. A winery is probably a great place to unwind, it sounds so peaceful. Wood burning fireplaces, mountain views, money off for returning guests. Does any body else hear ‘Writers Retreat’? These sound like some of the perfect places to finish that book.

    • Alyce says:

      Kelly, that sounds like a perfect place for a writers retreat or getaway trip! These vineyards are a lot of fun to visit and it’s so much better to be able to stay overnight!!

  12. Bruce says:

    Traveling is my hobby, I love visiting new places, discover need things and gave fun and adventures with my loved ones. Georgia is really a beautiful place to be, with lots of amazing adventures to enjoy. Spending the night there is gonna be really interesting and I so much look forward to it, thanks for the help.

  13. Suz says:

    So glad to see your posts again after a very long time and I think it would be nice for me to be able to try what you have shared out here because I have Ben thinking o the perfect time for me to go down to Georgia and this post had shown me a good place to go spend time when I am there.

  14. Nath says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this here with us all. For adventirist and travellers like I am, this is a big help that you have shared here. Though I have heard quite a lot about the Georgia mountains and I had it on my list too of things to do, guess it isn’t right yet still. I value all you have shared here and it makes quite a lot of sense here. Thank you so much for the suggestione

  15. jack buck says:

    Excellent blog here! Also your site loads up very fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  16. Tackie Richie says:

    This is love at first sight for me. I  love everything about the vineyard wineries where you can spend even more than a night, i would love to spend  even a life time in such peaceful and naturally endowed environment, i can literally feel the cool of the night breeze splash on face right. lol i am already fantasizing already.. This is a must visit for me. i think this could also be a nice spot for a date with that special woman of one’s life. lol.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Tackie Richie, These vineyard cottages and cabins are a stunning way to spend a romantic time in the beautiful mountain scenery. The convenience of a vineyard winery on site makes it even better!!

  17. Iheanacho David says:

    Wow! This is an amazing writeup! So informative and helpful too! My 20th wedding anniversary is coming up soon and this is and ideal spot to spend the night with my wife. So glad I came across this. Cost effective also! All that’s left is fetting a babysitter so the wife and I can have a splendid time! Bless you!

  18. EliteCarol says:

    Oh! Quite an extensive post you have here and one that I found very interesting and intriguing to read on. Well! For a start, I love travelling a lot and Georgia has been a big one for ke of recent that I am looking forward to. Getting to know all these special little features makes me more anxious towards exploring this placem this is a good one to note down for me 

    • Alyce says:

      There are a lot of wonderful places to explore in the North Georgia mountains and staying on site at a vineyard is definitely more unique than a typical hotel stay!

  19. Philebur says:

    Hello there! Thanks for sharing this wonderful article that is both very informative and inspiring, thanks a lot! Spending my holiday in a vineyard would be a wonderful experience and the highlight of a vacation. I am really impressed by the suggestion of these vineyards you’ve listed out. This is a wonderful idea and it’s inspiring a lot of great travel ideas!

    • Alyce says:

      Staying overnight at a vineyard is a great way to fully experience the rhythm of these great agritourism locations!

  20. John says:

    Your ideas are really nice and I think it will be very good for me to give them a try as well. Seeing that I can actually stay for three days for $300 is cool because I can get to save especially since it is a group outing. The list is very comprehensive and good too. Thank you.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi John, These are definitely nice ways to enjoy the area and experience the natural beauty of these georgeous mountain vineyards at all times of day.

  21. Henderson says:

    Wow, this is very nice and I must say that I am very impressed with the vineyard wineries that you have shared here. I think it will be a very good experience for me because I am a very big traveller. You have given a very good list. I want to know how good the weather is in Georgia and how accommodation is as well.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Henderson, The weather will depend on the season. The Georgia mountains truly enjoy all 4 seasons and each provide a unique way to experience the area. The peak season for North Georgia is fall / autumn due to all the beautiful colors of the changing leaves in the Blue Ridge mountains.

  22. Justin says:

    Hello, I was thinking about taking my wife to a place similar to yours. Awesome website by the way. I am thinking about doing something for a week or so in September 2020. What would be your best recommendation for a couple celebrating their 5 year anniversary? What are your reservation guidelines?

    Thanks so much


    • Alyce says:

      Hi Justin, 

      September is a lovely time to visit the Georgia mountains. 

      The summer attractions in the area will start to close for the season after Labor Day weekend, so I’d recommend arriving early in the month if you want to explore seasonal activities (things on the water). The autumn / fall attractions will start to pick up towards the end of the month as the temperatures cool (corn mazes, scenic railway fall foliage rides, harvest festivals, and more!).

      Each vineyard lodging option will have it’s own individual policies regarding reservations, but I’d recommend making your reservation as soon as you can to get the best availability!

  23. Michael says:

    Thank you for this post. I am so glad I found this. My friends and I built a huge tree house when we were kids. The thought of taking a vacation and staying in a tree house sounds amazing. My wife and I love wine and this will definitely be on my to do list. Thanks again. Michael

  24. C says:

    Thank you for this great article! The weekend special Vine Keepers deal for $240 for the weekend sounds really good. All of the Villas also sound really nice. That’s cool that you get to stay in a whole entire house. That would be really nice since a change of scenery can be really helpful at times. 

    That’s nice that in the cabins, you can get one day for free when you stay for a full seven days. I really liked that treehouse in the bear claw Vineyards. The tree house would probably be my number one favorite choice. Thank you for your expertise on staying in places in Georgia, and I have a great day!

  25. Steve says:

    My wife and I went on our honeymoon to Italy and those Montaluce Villas remind me so much of some of the houses we saw there. I never thought of Georgia as a winery destination before, but it really looks spectacular! I also really like the look of the Blue Ridge Treehouse. I have watched shows about the construction of treehouses and thought it would be fun to stay in one. This looks like the opportunity to do so!

    • Alyce says:

      It’s great that there is such a variety of options when looking for a unique place to stay in the Georgia mountains. The Montaluce Villas are definitely a bit of luxury in the Dahlonega area, while the neat treehouse provides a more laid-back environment (Bear Claw Vineyards include firepits, cornhole games, and more). You can be sure of a memorable trip with either vineyard lodging choice!!

  26. Chloe says:

    Wow, this is really nice. I have been looking for a place to visit this December and I have been hearing alot about Georgia Mountains. So far ibhage gathered quite alot about this place and this good details just keeps getting more and more. Looking at the idea of staying at a vineyard would make so much sense to me. I’ll love to visit some day. Thanks for sharing.

    • Alyce says:

      It’s great that so many Georgia vineyards have facilities where you can stay and really enjoy the scenery and all that the vineyard and surrounding area has to offer. Winter is a lovely time to visit as it’s the least crowded time of year for a visit (which will allow for specialized attention for your group!).

  27. Twack Romero says:

    Planning ahead is always going to be the way forward, especially when it comes to having a family of six. For once I have a selection to choose from, which is excellent. In the past it has always been a struggle to find choices, there would only ever be one or two that could accomodate six.

    Paradise Hills looks like the favourite, with it being a Spa-site and, not that it’s a deal breaker for me, they allow pets. I had a look at the other venues and they’re all exceptional but I think this one tops it all with having the horse riding available. At a very low price of $89 per night I think anyone would be hard pushed to find a better deal.

    A short break in a beautiful location, throw in horse riding, spa, ‘pet friendly’ and a very reasonable price, ticks all the boxes for me.

    • Alyce says:

      Paradise Hills is a lovely choice for staying at a Georgia mountain vineyard and nicely tucked away in the mountains. It will definitely feel like a nice retreat with all of the available activities.

  28. Rin says:

    This is amazing!
    We plan to take vacation in GA next year and this gives so much insight on all the option and prices we could stay.
    Thank you so much for all the info. How fun would be to stay at a vinyeard.

    • Alyce says:

      Rin, you are most correct. These options to stay on site at a Georgia mountain vineyard can provide beautiful scenery with a truly unique local experience.

  29. Dane says:

    Hello there, thanks for sharing this wonderful post. Having to spend a night at a vine yard is one cool experience I have always enjoyed once I was a kid, and growing up and meeting all these changes have removed lots of fun activities from my life. Looking at this post, I am really impressed with the suggestions you have given on these vine yard, aloe for those prices, its something I’ll love to experience. Nice being here.

  30. john michael adkins says:


    Thank you for the walk down memory lane! I lived in Atlanta for five years, and some reason every 6 to 7 weeks was required to go to the Georgia Mountains. It looks fantastic but be very careful there are a lot of creepy and crawly in them their hills. The wine was extraordinary and worth the trip. 

    Thanks again and take care of yourself!


    • Alyce says:

      Haha, it does always pay to be alert and aware of wildlife that you may encounter when you go into the woods. Fortunately, the vineyards always feel to be a safe space to relax with a glass of wine!

  31. Henry says:

    Hi! I really like these Italian villages in Montaluce! They have an air as if one was in Tuscany. If I have to choose from these 4 villages, my personal preference is Villa Oliveti because we’re a big family group and we like to stay all together. Having  bedrooms makes it the perfect match! Thank you very much! 

    • Alyce says:

      The Montaluce villas are a rare gem in the Georgia Mountains. Excellent choice and the vineyard, winery, and restaurant on site are some of the nicest in the area!

  32. Ibrahim says:

    I used to have a time share that would let me stay at places like this.  The vacation spots were wonderful but those hidden fees led to us suing them and getting rid of them forever.  I’ve been looking for vacation spots that could fill the void of no longer having the time share and this is one that seems to fit.  Thx for the info and I’ll bookmark it as an idea for my next vacation

    • Alyce says:

      Yes, I’ve heard some crazy stories about timeshare properties… fortunately these vineyard accomodations don’t include any sales pitches to invest in the property! 🙂 

  33. Shannon says:

    Thank you so much for highlighting these rental options. This is an excellent short get away idea that I never would have thought of. 

    I especially love the look of the cottage at the Crane Creek Vineyard. It looks absolutely beautiful and I love how a private pool and hot tub is included on the property. Are you aware if the $25 charge per extra people applies to children or is it only adult occupants? 

    Our family loves to go on nature walks. I know there are tours of the vineyards but are you aware if there are any type of nature trails in the Crane Creek area? Thanks so much!

  34. Pentrental says:

    Vineyard wineries are something that really interest me. I had not heard of vineyard wineries in the Georgia Mountains before, so I was pleasantly surprised to find my way to your post here. For me, I think I would prefer either the Villa Della Luna, as it looks like a really enchanting building overlooking the mountains, or Odom Springs Vineyard, which has a large capacity and two fireplaces. Sitting in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine in the Georgia Mountains sounds like such a great trip. I’ll be referencing your post for when it’s soon time to plan it, thank you!

    • Alyce says:

      I agree that these are some very special places to stay and enjoy a glass of local wine. The most luxurious accomodations are the Italian Villas at Montaluce, the newest are at Kaya Vineyard & Winery, while the others are more in line with what you might expect in a mountain cabin. You can’t go wrong with any of them!

  35. Pandamelody says:

    really good use of visuals ! very easy to read, information is clear and listed. 

    Can you do other activities than just visit the vineyards ? What type of wine do the vineyards produce ? wine lovers would probably like to know what types of wine they produce. What’s the wine specialty of the vineyard ? etc… you see what I mean ?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi, for more information about any of the vineyards, simply click on the name of the vineyard… these links go to pages with more full details about each vineyard. This way the current article is more focused on vineyard lodging details available, while still providing access to find more information about the vineyards with a convenient link. Hope this helps!

  36. Ally says:

    We will be visiting Georgia next year for my God-daughter’s wedding. As we are coming all the way from the UK, we have of course decided to make the most of our trip by extending it to a three week family vacation. I have never visited this area before and I have very little knowledge of the geography or the culture so please excuse me that I didn’t know it was also a wine-making region.  I can’t tell you how exciting that is to me – I am really looking forward to sampling some of your local wines.  I am thinking now that a large cabin would be perfect for us as we are a large group and because we plan to stay in the area and explore for a week, I think I would much prefer this to a hotel.  

    I am going to send your website details to my sister and her family who are travelling with us as I think this will really appeal.  Can you also advise me please regarding the sorts of leisure and tourism opportunities in the area.  We will be travelling in September time so what sorts of interesting places and activities can you recommend in the area for that time of year?

    • Alyce says:

      Wonderful news, as the area is such a perfect place for a gorgeous wedding. The wine harvest is probably just starting around that time… September is a great time of year to travel, as most things are still open and it’s slightly earier than the biggest crowds which arrive in October. 

      If you prefer to be in nature, there are many wonderful hikes, including the world renouned Appalachian Trail which starts in the area (don’t worry – you won’t have to hike the entire 2,000+ miles to Maine!). Rafting is also very nice, and you can choose something with an easy floating pace on the Chattahoochee or something more thrilling on the Chestatee. There are parks and caving opportunities as well. 

      There are also tons of quirky and unique activities as well… explore the site to find ways to drive a tank and crush a car, ziplining, aerial tours, panning for gold, and much more!

      Please reach out with any more specific questions — I’m happy to help you find ideas and plan an unforgettable trip!

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  37. Bob says:

    I am very interested in so much here. My wife and I have been to the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina. She just recently mentioned a train ride from Bryson, NC with the Smokey Mountain Railroad and it would include a dinner with wine tasting. 

    The vineyards in Georgia sound intriguing and makes for what could be very relaxing evenings. I am not as familiar with the area, but the description of the area sounds like there is plenty to keep someone occupied for the daytime entertainment. I am always looking for a different place to go and vacation and this sounds like a new one for us to explore.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Bob, both TN and NC share a border with GA in the Georgia mountains. Just like those mountain areas, there are so many ways to spend your time! What you choose just depends on what types of activities you’d most like to try. 
      Staying at a vineyard is a unique way to immerse yourself in one of the area’s newest industries… and even among the vineyards, your experience can be as rustic as staying in a treehouse (Bear Claw Vineyards), a log cabin (Cavender Creek Vineyards), or an Italian-style villa (Montaluce).

      Hope you have a wonderful visit!

      Warm Regards, Alyce

  38. Katya says:

    I love this post, I used to work in a winery that offered a really nice accommodation as well and I know how great it is to spend couple of days surrounded with vineyards. Perfect place to unwind and recharge.

    My favorite on your list is probably Odom Springs vineyard lodge..I mean, all of them look great but if we’re in Georgia mountains then I prefer a lodge over a modern villa 🙂

    Thanks for providing this winery accommodations,


  39. Fabio says:

    This is great – I used to advise a cabin rental in Blairsville – a small town in the beautiful mountains. There are numerous smaller and larger towns that are very close in proximity so that you will have plenty of places to purchase food for your Georgia mountain cabin rental and enjoy various cuisines. The outdoor activities in the area abound, includin golfing, white water rafting, tubing, fishing, and horseback riding. Great way to spend a chill week!!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Fabio, 

      Staying at a cabin in the Georgia mountains is one of the BEST ways to relax. These locations are beautiful all year long and truly see a change in scenery with each new season. 

      Fall is the most popular time of year, as the sight of the colors of the leaves on the deciduous trees is spectacular! Be sure to book well in advance for stays during the fall – especially the peak weekends of October and early November. 

      Even though the scenery will make you feel like you are a world away from civilization, modern amenities are generally a short drive away. There are plenty of places to stock up on the essentials… and staying at the vineyards ensures that you won’t go thirsty. 😉
