The Lodge and Spa at Callaway Gardens
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Pine Mountain
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Fall colors in the gardens and not many guests made for a relaxing visit. We were greeted by the parking attendant who also took care of our bags. Made us feel welcome. Room was clean and nicely appointed. We had the breakfast package and breakfast was very good. We also ate dinner twice at the house restaurant and felt we got a good value for our money and good food.

Room Tip: As high a floor as you can get to take advantage of the garden view.

Dear bikehog,

It was a pleasure learning of your recent stay with us at The Lodge & Spa at Callaway Gardens, Autograph Collection. Thank you for your business and your positive feedback. It sounds like you enjoyed all that the resort has to offer. Did you by chance try our Pimento Cheese Fritters or table-side Smores in the Piedmont Grille? They are a hit with our guests. Also, thank you for the feedback on our rooms. Our guests always tell us how much they enjoy the four fixture bathroom and soft bedding. During your next trip, I recommend trying Spa Prunifolia as it has been rated in the top 10 for Organic Spa's in the USA. Thank you again for your time and business and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Warm Regards,

Jeff

Best get-a-way from Atlanta for both business and pleasure. During Christmas holidays, I walked into the resort lobby and warm apple cider was waiting on me not to mention the warm fireplace going with beautiful holiday decorations. Guest rooms are very nice with comfortable beds and spacious bathroom. If I ever needed anything, the front desk agents were always very nice and accommodating.

The spa and fitness center are worth the visit. Callaway Gardens is a must on your do list.

Piedmont Restaurant breakfast buffet is awesome!

The resort is definitely on my favorite list.

Room Tip: Book 9 months in advance for summer and holiday stay. Large guest rooms Great location for Weddi...

Our stay was short arriving late so no one was available or even offered to help open the does or with our stuff. I asked about the pool even though its heated its outdoors with no lighting so (closes at dark). However, we had looked forward to it and still went since others were still swimming. Its a very nice pool but a long walk away when it starts raining. The bathroom is nice and big with large seperate shower and that came in handy with the kids after the chilly walk back from the pool. We slept well in our queen beds and had snacks for breakfast that I brought since food is very pricey. Recommend the three little pigs bbq a minute away. Overall, I would come back if I could get a better deal, wish there was packages including golf, bikes, food etc.

Dear dreamingtraveler,

It was a pleasure learning of your recent stay with us at The Lodge & Spa at Callaway Gardens, Autograph Collection. Thank you for your business and your feedback. Many of our guests truly enjoy our four fixture bathrooms and the deep tub. And we are so excited you were able to enjoy the outdoor heated pool! Did you notice it was salt water? That is part of our green initiative since we are a LEED Certified hotel by the US Green Building Council. Thank you again for your business and we look forward to having you back in the future.

Warm Regards,

Jeff

A quick drive (under 2 hours) from metro Atlanta I arranged for a weekend birthday retreat over the Labor Day weekend to enjoy the property and the hot air ballon festival. Check-in was quick and provided lots of information on what to do and she even helped map a long 10 mile run route for us the next morning. Both resturant and room service were excellent. The room was comfortable with a very large bath with separate tub and shower. Balcony was perfect size for two people to sit a to enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking the pool. Staff was excellent, grounds are amazing, already looking for our next get-away reason!

Dear MargaretL750,

It was a pleasure learning about your recent stay with us at The Lodge & Spa at Callaway Gardens, Autograph Collection. Thank you for taking the time to communicate with us about your experience. It sounds as if you had a very enjoyable stay and sipping some wine on your balcony is a regular occurrence at our resort. And many also enjoy the separate bath and shower like you were able to! During your next trip I would suggest trying out Spa Prunifolia if you did not get a chance when you were here. We hope to see you before next Labor Day and thank you again.

Warm Regards,

Jeff

Room was wonderful - good size, comfortable with a nice balcony and view. Staff was helpful and breakfast buffet was very good. No negatives to note. Parking is free and there is plenty of it out front, and Callaway Gardens is a nice place to visit. Restaurant down below (forget name - Iron something?) was very good and nice place for a cocktail and some snacks.

I stayed here two nights for a meeting. I enjoyed the stay, and would certainly recommend staying here if in the area!

The lodge seems to be fairly secluded, but in a wonderful wooded setting. The staff was excellent and very friendly upon check-in. Although looking small from the outside, the lodge area is actually pretty big, with long hallways set at angles.

The rooms themselves were very large. The beds were some of the more comfortable I've slept in at a hotel, and the pillows were wonderful. There was ample desk and seating space, and the bathrooms were HUGE, with a toilet, deep bath tup, and sizeable glass-enclosed shower. There was a nice-size balcony; my overlooked the wooded area. All rooms appear to have a balcony.

The meeting/conference facilities were also very nice, spacious, and the food provided decent.

I did have some room issues after check-in; there was a very noticeable and persistent sewer smell, and a thremostat that was not working. Building staff responded very quickly, though, and provided me with another room (same size, etc.) immediately, and assisted me in moving my luggage. I understand that things go wrong in hotel rooms, and in my mind it's all about how building staff respond; in this case, the response was quick and excellent!

My only two "knocks" from 5 to 4 stars are minor in nature; one is the realtive isolation fo the lodge. This is certainly a lodge and conference facility, so all needs can really be taken care of on site; however, it is not easy (or even possible) to walk to other areas of the property, or to neighboring Pine Mountain. There were also some stains on the window curtains, lamp shades, and top blanket, but nothing out of the ordinary other than due to normal use of the facility.

I did not take part and enjoy any of the other amenities of the property (such as pool, golf, beach, gardens, etc.), but from a quick drive around the site, they all looked inviting.

Although it is likely I won't end up in this area again, if so, I would certainly not hesitate to stay at Callaway Gardens again.

We're on our way home from our second weekend at the Lodge. If you enjoy a secluded (as in - it's literally out in the woods!) and very low-key nice hotel, this is the place for you! Decor is a bit rustic, but nothing is old or worn out. It's a nice get-away place - not roughing it.

One type of reservation currently includes admission to Callaway Gardens, which has lots of strolling/biking areas. We went to Mr Cason's Garden area which is where a TV gardening show is filmed...I told you it's a low-key resort area!

All rooms have a balcony - some overlook the woods and others face the courtyard & pool area, which is the view we enjoy - we like 4th floor, room 8414. We do evening room service and have enjoyed both green salads, ahi tuna entree, and spinach/garlic ravioli. All staff are friendly and helpful.

My only complaint is that alcohol prices seem over the top there - $6.75 plus tip for a poolside beer seems high. This trip, we took our own beer and wine - all rooms have a fridge. It worked great because we were using room service.

We are delighted you enjoyed room service. It is such an amazing thing isnt it? The mini-fridge in the room does help assist in a relaxing weekend as well. The Vegetable Garden is a personal favorite of mine and many travelers to Callaway love gardening, so it works. Thank you again for your time. We look forward to your next stay! And don't forget, our pool is heated for a nice winter dip!
