I don’t know about you, but I haven’t taken an actual trip in a while. We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary last month, and we decided to go on a little weekend getaway somewhere nearby. (And we stayed in our first hotel since maybe January of 2020!) When we were searching for somewhere new, we decided that we wanted to go somewhere where we could spend a lot of time outside and really relax. So, we decided to plan a weekend at Serenbe, which is a little community outside of Atlanta in the Chattahoochie Hills.
Where We Stayed
We visited in late October, and booked the 48-hour package at The Inn at Serenbe. The Inn is an old farmhouse that has been transformed into an inn with 27 guest rooms. We chose to stay in one of the historic rooms, but here are also add-on rooms that are parts of the newer construction on the farmhouse. It was a such a cozy room with a huge window seat–a perfect spot to sit and read, if the weather was cold or rainy. The package that we booked included our room, a golf cart for the weekend, our meals, a bonfire with s’mores, a trail riding experience, and one spa treatment each.
How We Spent the Weekend
We spent most of our time outside, to be completely honest. There are lots of trails to walk at Serenbe. If you want to just wander in the woods, you’ll be at the right place! Oh, and you can take the walking trail from The Inn to the village, or you can take a golf cart down into the village.
We arrived at Serenbe a little earlier than check-in time, so we wandered a bit. For lunch, we grabbed a sandwich at Blue Eyed Daisy before we went to The Inn. On our first night, we had dinner in the village at a restaurant called The Hill. It might have been my favorite meal of the weekend! Once we got back to our room, we went out to the bonfire and made a few perfect s’mores.
On Saturday we had breakfast in bed and our lunch was a picnic trail ride. We got to meet some of the rescue horses and take a relaxing ride through the woods. After the trail ride, we had time to wander some of the hiking/walking trials before our appointment at The Spa. That night, dinner was at The Farmhouse, which is the restaurant that is in the Inn. The maple creme brûlée that I ordered for dessert at The Farmhouse was delicious. (I may have ordered it to go so that I could eat it in my pajamas, though.)
Sunday morning, there was a full southern breakfast at The Farmhouse, but we opted to take the trail down to the village and pick up coffee at Blue Eyed Daisy (again). We checked our of our room, then went back down to the village for lunch at Halsa before we got on the road back home.
The weekend at Serenbe was the perfect getaway for us. It was a perfect place to relax, unwind, and spend time out in the gorgeous October weather. Somehow, we timed it perfectly for the weather to be cool in the mornings and just right in the afternoons.
