Drivable Delight

By Allison Mitchell | May 17, 2016 | Articles

An hour outside of Atlanta in quaint Adairsville lies beautiful Barnsley Resort, a majestic property dotted with cozy cottages, three delicious eateries, a breathtaking golf course, a renowned spa and more. The perfect getaway for couples and families alike, Barnsley offers an array of activities that will keep the whole crew entertained from dawn till dusk. Grab the gals and head to The Spa, where massages and body treatments (book a Beautifully Balanced rest, detox or renew massage), facials, nail treatments, makeup application, waxing services and a sauna await. Stock up on skincare products (we love the all-natural Naturopathica line) and swimwear in The Spa Boutique before heading to lunch at the alfresco beer garden (sip on the resort-exclusive Monday Night Barnsley Resort Englishman ESB). Meanwhile, the gents have the great outdoors at their fingertips with a 378-acre, par-72 Jim Fazio-designed golf course, fly-fishing, horseback riding, paintball, clay shooting and more. Meet back up for dinner at the romantic Rice House—monthly multicourse wine dinners get the party started thanks to communal seating and hours of pours from visiting oenophiles (don’t miss Blue Rock Vineyard June 11, $185 per person). The seasonal Spring Into Fun package (valid through June 2, from $225 per night, three-night minimum stay) ensures you’ll get the most bang for your buck with a discounted nightly rate and $150 activity credit. Free massage or round of golf? Don’t mind if we do! Standard overnight rate from $299, @barnsleyresort
