“Don't make the same mistake I made”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

I made a reservation for New Year's Eve, my cc was charged and I received a confirmation email but was informed upon arrival that my reservation "must have been changed". Conversations with the front desk manager and reservations manager were fruitless. I was turned away, the explanation received was a lame "I don't know what happened". A much anticipated return phone call from the general manager has still not occurred.

This was our 6th year coming to Barnsley for our anniversary. Even though it was pouring rain, we still had a great stay. The room was perfect, and the service was excellent. Thank you to Greg "The wine Snob" for making our anniversary extra special.

Room Tip: It is very quiet during the holiday season, and beautifully decorated for Christmas. We always get a...

I highly recommend this resort. Immediately upon arriving we knew our visit would be wonderful. Beautifully decorated for Christmas from the entrance gate, to our cottage,to the restaurants and the Ruins. Southern Hospitality at its finest. Kudos to Tim our golf cart driver, he gave us the Grand Tour of the Ruins. Went we returned from our dinner the night before at The Woodlands where I might add we had the most wonderful Filet/Fried Lobster dinner ever. Arriving back at the cottage to a toasty lit fire/s'mores. Sorry I can't remember the name of the young lady that prepared our room. After tipping she noticed we had inadvertently given her a large amount for a tip, she returned to our room to tell us and give it back. Its rare to find such honesty. Thank you so much. The only thing I would change about the weekend is a little too early wake up call from the firewood person replenishing our firewood on the porch. Can't wait for warmer weather so we can go back and enjoy every aspect of this resort. Thanks for a perfect birthday weekend.

I have played golf a number of times ,and also have attended business meetings at this great resort. A beautiful setting , great golf , the spa , fishing , trails to hike and great food. This week I hosted a small meeting that I held in one of the many cottages. Had a great business result followed by an outstanding dinner. The closeness to Atlanta or Chattanooga makes this a great environment thats' close enough but feels worlds away. I recommend strongly.

This is a beautiful property in a remote area of north Georgia. The setting with individual cottages for anywhere from one to 6 occupants is idea for relaxation and activities galore. However, since my wife's company stayed at this property for a business meeting last year and returned this year, there has been a decline in management. Some attention to maintenance both inside and outside the cottages and other buildings is needed to justify the price. And with all resorts the tax upon tax on the rooms is a bit over the top. So, ask what the total cost of a cottage will be before booking, I might add the food at the different restaurants is very good and the activities with a championship golf course, skeet shooting, horse back riding, fishing, hunting and many lawn games are very good. Whether for business functions or pleasure it's not a bad place to visit since they offer so many activities and amenities.

Room Tip: Cottages at the resort are different from the outside and many are different inside depending on the...

What a wonderful place! We stayed at Barnsley for a few days to get away from the city and celebrate a special occasion. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, it made us feel right at home. Had a "cabin" with our own sitting area and fireplace. We were even provided with a s'mores kit to enjoy on our own. Food at the Woodlands Grill was lovely (breakfast and dinner).

Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were well-appointed (large claw-foot tub is awesome).

Loved being able to bring our dog with us: enjoyed being able to go hiking and sightseeing together.

Unfortunately, due to poor weather, we were not able to take advantage of the other activities offered.

We'll be back again!

Room Tip: There aren't any bad rooms at this place!

First, the rooms on the website are not the room you get, they are much more generic. There is nothing wrong with this place but I can't understand the premium pricing either. If you are heading to a resort of this price go to the mountains or the ocean.
