Why our guests choose us:
Location: Located only 80 miles north of Atlanta and with more than a dozen near-by wineries, Sylvan Valley Lodge and Winery offers an ideal base from which to explore the mountains of North Georgia Wine Country.
Loyalty: Our guests love us. We have many loyal, repeat guests and are one of the top-rated hotels in Sautee Nacoochee on the popular customer travel review site TripAdvisor.com (where we have continued to earn the Certificate of Excellence each year).
Winery: Ours is the only lodge in the area with an on-site winery and a Georgia only wine bar.
Great local knowledge: Our team has the best local knowledge and access to restaurants, wineries and activities. Whether it's your first or your 50th visit to the Wine Country, we are pleased to arrange phenomenal itineraries and assist you with great ideas of memorable things to do.
Unrivaled Wine Knowledge: Our Wine Adventure Guide, Ted Vedeki, is both a Certified Specialist of Wine and and certified by the Wine and Spirits Education Trust. We offer wine education classes regularly along with other wine education events and pairings.
Comfortable rooms: Included in the room options are cabin suites, whirlpool tubs, mountain, valley and forest views, and semi-private balconies. It's the inner peace you've been seeking.
Authentic style: We aren't a faux French Chateau and we aren"t a cold, contemporary box-we're just a very warm, inviting Craftsman-style Lodge in the Wine Country with post and beam architecture and natural stone finishes.
The great outdoors: Sylvan Valley Lodge is set on over four acres of natural, managed landscapes. Explore our serene gardens, abundant with native plantings and mountain views, sit under the peaceful gaze of Yonah Mountain and simply enjoy the view, or stroll through The Glade as you unwind under a canopy of tall hardwoods.
Wine Bar and Tasting Room: The Wine Bar and Tasting Room, located on the first floor of the lodge, brings together local wines, craft beers and artisan cheeses in a comfortable casual setting, providing the ideal place for wine to "lighten up" and beer to "grow up."
We don't nickel and dime you: We provide an excellent complimentary made-to-order breakfast, free parking, free WiFi, free bottled water and sodas, and tea and coffee for in-room Keurig.
Locally owned: We are an independent, locally owned and operated business, and we take great satisfaction in making your stay in North Georgia Wine Country memorably wonderful.
