Well, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over, 2013 is now a memory and the true winter season has kicked in! I know it is easy to get down in the winter months and long for sunshine on our faces! However, we must embrace each season as it comes and see the positives that it can offer. Although outdoor activities are more limited this time of year, there are some fabulous places to visit to help take away those winter blues! Brasstown Valley, located in the beautiful town of Young Harris in the North Georgia Mountains is a fabulous winter get away destination!
The Chattahoochee National Forest borders this 503 acre beauty. At various times of the year you can often see a variety of wildlife. In the winter, you may get fortunate to experience a North Georgia Mountain snow which would certainly be a gorgeous view from one of Brasstown’s 102 guest rooms in the main lodge or one of their 32 guest cottages and 8 private cottages.
This is definitely a great romantic get-away destination as you will be greeted by a cozy roaring fireplace, lots of exceptional dining and plush accommodations. One of the greatest assets to staying here in the winter as well is the onsite Equani Spa that offers a true sanctuary from the stress of the urban life. They provide body treatments, facials, soothing massages and unique rituals indigenous to the Cherokee people, designed to stimulate and refresh the mind, body and soul. Who couldn’t use a little bit of that?? You can also enjoy the heated indoor/outdoor pool together as well.
Surrounding Brasstown is many wonderful restaurants as well including Hiawassee’s Chophouse or Cafe Portofino. Take a drive to beautiful Brasstown Bald or shop at some of the quaint boutiques in the area. Whatever you do, I have no doubt you will love your winter get away at Brasstown and you will look forward to coming back in the summer or fall season! Enjoy!
