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 (where we have continued to earn the Certificate of Excellence each year).

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.”

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.

Regional Wine Knowledge

We know Georgia Wines and Wineries because we like to visit them too. Let us help you plan you wine adventures based on your preferences. Just tell us what you normally like, and we’ll tell you where you are most likely to find it. Whether you are new to wine tasting, or an old pro, we can help customize your North Georgia Wine Country experience.

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.

We Don’t Nickel and Dime You

We provide free parking, free WiFi, and coffee for in-room Keurig.
