Lately we've been exploring different self care options. With many people experiencing seasonal depression and the overwhelming stress of the holidays, we thought it may be helpful to provide some cozy alternatives. We took some time "off the beaten path" to disconnect before engaging in all the holiday festivities. In doing so we took a midweek break from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta to recharge in the forest and commune with nature. Of course Getaway House Atlantahad us covered!
Getaway House Atlanta has several tiny cabins scattered across 57 acres of outpost land about 2 hrs north of Atlanta, GA. We enjoyed some of the best unobstructed views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from our large picture frame window. Just imagine waking up to the bright sun peaking through the trees, evening sunset walks and late night rain drops pinging from the rooftop. You can finally turn off those nature sound scapes because you will be living in pure Zen!
We stayed 2 nights at Getaway House Atlanta and it was just enough time to disconnect. The best thing for us about Getaway House is that entire property is pet friendly so you can enjoy quality time with your furry friends for a small cleaning fee. Our baby "Lola Anastasia Graham" had a great time exploring the trails and hanging out by the camp fire. If traveling with friends and family you can take advantage of the two double bed option or a single for more privacy.
The Cabins are the cutest! Securely locked with key code access all accommodations are equipped with a hard wired phone for emergencies, heat, running water, a toilet, shower and bath towels. Each cabin is clearly labeled with unique names and easy to find with provided instructions received on your check in date. With a fully functional kitchen there is no need to pack a bunch of cooking utensils, your cabin is stocked with everything needed for a woodsy culinary experience. Every cabin also has an outside seating arrangement complete with a fire pit (grill included), wood (additional fee) and and a picnic table table for enjoying your meals. Forgot something? No worries, there is a local convenience store with food about 10 miles away.

"Sometimes we need to disconnect in order to reconnect with what really matters."
Our mantra is EXPLORE•IMMERSE•EMBRACE . This simply means to Explore your surroundings. Immerse in culture/knowledge and Embrace those around you. Getaway House Atlanta helped us successfully accomplish all of that and so much more!
We wandered the woods and trails: Our Lola loved exploring and sniffing unfamiliar grounds. She even met some other pups staying near us. We stayed outside and took full advantage of every minute of sunshine and fresh air.
Snuggled up with a good book: I connected with myself, immersed in knowledge and took away many gems! One in particular was "Presidents talk to Presidents" This bit of info helped me level up and secure our special gift to you (listed below). I am also now able to spot what and who is real in business and pivot successfully, even under adverse circumstances. That is key to entrepreneurship and women in business.

Campfire Cooks & Convos: Embraced each other and the nature around us. Cooking meals over the grill and catching up with loved ones is always a great idea, besides who can resist s'mores?
We even slept in late which is always a plus. Working across time zones, we are typically up early, hit the ground running and go to bed late. Cozy mornings in bed are much needed from time to time. We left Getaway House fully recharged & ready for the world.
