How to Spend 24 Hours in the North Georgia Mountains

24 Hours of Perfection

Planning a quick getaway can be overwhelming. Deciding which lodging, attractions, and restaurants to visit is often daunting, especially when you are unfamiliar with the area. If you’ve found yourself wanting some guidance planning your north Georgia mountain getaway, look no further! Whether you’re looking to pack in as much as you can, or you’d rather relax and unwind, Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa is the perfect destination, especially when you are short on time. Here is our 24-hour guide to the area!

Spa Retreat

If you’ve stayed at Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa before, then you know the best way to relax and rejuvenate is at our inn. We have the coziest rooms, the most exquisite breakfast, and the absolute best mountain view you’ll find in north Georgia. Make your 24-hour getaway a spa retreat and you’ll leave feeling refreshed, relaxed, and ready to take on your next project. If you only have 24 hours in the area, try our 24/48 Hour Bliss Package.

This package sets the stage for a 24 (or 48) hour romantic winter escape to the mountains. Arrive at the Lucille’s for an Early Check-in at 1:00 p.m., where a bottle of champagne or sparkling cider and chocolate-covered strawberries will be waiting. Later that afternoon relax with a 55-minute Couple’s Massage at The Spa at Lucille’s, just adjacent to the Inn. After you return to the Inn that evening enjoy one of Lucille’s sweet treats and a night of total comfort. The next morning let us pamper you with breakfast served in bed so that you can have a leisurely morning enjoying the crisp mountain air, right up until your late check-out at 1:00 p.m.

Adventure Getaway

We know not everyone plans getaways to rest and relax. If adventure is what you’re after, we have plenty to offer there as well. Excellent hiking, gorgeous mountain drives, and all manner of outdoor activities await you here. Start out your day with a Lucille’s breakfast, then make your way to one of our breathtaking state parks and historic sites for a hike. Unicoi State Park, Hardman Farms Historic Site, and Smithgall Woods State Park all have excellent hiking trails and other amenities. Each of these options showcases the best that North Georgia has to offer.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, take a break for lunch at a restaurant in Helen. Cowboys & Angels is a steakhouse offering a casual atmosphere with delicious southern food. Or try Chimmi’s Cafe for wraps, burgers, and BBQ.

After lunch in Helen, take time to wander through town and enjoy the one-of-a-kind Bavarian-style architecture that makes Helen so unique. Stroll through the Alpine Village Shoppes for a variety of offerings or walk to the Nora Mill Granary & Country Store for a glimpse into the history of this area.

By now it’s probably time for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Stop by one of the fabulous coffee shops this area has to offer and check out a local museum or bookshop. Here are a few ideas:
