Laura and I have had a tradition for 4 years now that we take a weekend retreat to the North Georgia Mountains. We’ve stayed at Brasstown Valley Resort as well as the Dillard House. Brasstown has a great setting and wonderful lodge. The Dillard House is the place to go for knock-your-socks-off family style food.
This year we took recommendations from friends and landed on this place in Blue Ridge, GA. Wes Goswick is the man for making this recommendation!
Serenity in the Mountains doubles as a spa/massage destination for many in North Georgia. This isn’t your mountains motel. It’s a condo-spa-esque retreat. Even though it’s located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and doesn’t have spectacular views, you totally forget about it once you get inside the condo. The bathroom has a tub large enough to fit a small family (You can see the picture…it speaks for itself). You can even head upstairs to the day spa to use the sauna and steam room complimentary for your stay.
Anyways…Laura, Deacon, and I turned on the fireplace and the 47-inch Flat Screen TV and chillaxed for the night. While it was snowing and peaceful outside, all was well and good inside our sweet getaway.
Some people recharge by being around others. I don’t. My batteries light up by being around my family. There is absolutely 100% no other place or people in the world that I would rather be around than my wife and son. So, it’s good to be together and away from everything else on weekend getaways like this!
It’s so good to get away and retreat with the family. God has blessed our lives in ways that can’t be explained. Do we have a busy life? Yes. Do we see family less than most people? Yes. But we wouldn’t trade what God has given for anything. We love this place in life and are enjoying it to the fullest.
This week our family went Big by taking a weekend Mountain retreat!
