“Heaven for families”
Reviewed 12 July 2006

This place has all the best of B&Bs and family hotels. I came from California with my 14-yr old and 5-yr old sons. The 5-yr old loved the petting farm, trampoline, treehouse and hayride. The teenager enjoyed fishing in the lake (poles were provided), hiking trails and big breakfast. We got to feed all the animals (horses, cows, pigs, llamas, chickens, donkeys, rabbits, goats, etc.) and gather the same eggs we had for breakfast everyday. My son fed an apple from the fruit dish in our entryway to one of the horses.

We were surprised to find a TV with DVD/VCR in our room. This was a real lifesaver when a thunderstorm hit and my little one wanted to watch a movie. We sat in the large screened-in porch and watched the show (don't get many storms in CA).

It really was like being on a farm "away from it all", but with every amenity you could want. Plan on spending at least 3-4 days, you will need it to enjoy everything!

My wife and I wanted to get away for a day to celebrate our first anniversary. Living in metro Atlanta, we checked some historic places in-town, but nothing popped out at us. Everything seemed old, frilly and outdated. So we broadened our search to places outside the perimeter and Serenbe came up on one of our searches. They have a great website that immediately captured our attention. The pictures and virtual tours of the rooms and grounds are spectacular. I wondered how well the pictures represented the rooms, and was not disappointed when we arrived.

We stayed in 1 of the 2 bedrooms in Cottage 2. Everything in the room was spotlessly clean and high quality (furnishings, drapes, bathroom...everything!) Our room had one king bed with lots of soft pillows and a feather duvet. We also had a TV/VCR/DVD combo with satelite TV. We had our own central air thermostat that worked really well. The bathroom was excellent too. A very large whirlpool tub was the centerpiece flanked with 2 pedestal sinks. Our porch had a great view of the land and the nearby lake.

From the moment we arrived the staff went out of their way to take care of us. We signed up for a breakfast time and were given a tour of our room. We were provided with a map of the property with details on hiking trails on the back. The room also had 2 books full of ideas for places to visit and restaurants to dine. They even included directions from the farm to every place listed in the books. My wife and I immediately set off on a hike to see the nearby waterfalls. I was skeptical of how worth our while the hike would be, but we were NOT disapointed. There are two waterfalls on the property a smaller one and a larger one; the trails are well manicured and well marked. The larger one is big enough to climb in and cool off after the hike. When we returned from our hike we visited the pool which was very nice as well.

They offer tea and snacks from 4:00 - 5:00, but we missed them because of our hike. In the evening a plate of brownies was delivered to our room! That night we took the directions they provided to nearby Newnan and dined at Ten East Washington. Ten East Washington is a nice, romantic restaurant in downtown Newnan. They had a jazz band upstairs and the food was great. The prices were reasonable as well. I had a New York Strip and my wife had Salmon. They were both excellent.

The following morning we went to breakfast on the glassed-in porch. The breakfast room was a nice size and setup restaurant style with tables that could accomadate 2, 4 or 8+ people. The food was excellent. There was cereal, fruit, yogurt and muffins as well as eggs, bacon and a baked apple pancake entree that was served buffet style from a huge black iron skillet. We left after breakfast, but wish we could have stayed longer. The owners have truely thought of everything and did not leave anything undone. Serenbe is a relaxing, romantic getaway so close to Atlanta, and yet so far away.
