    Peaceful oasis in the beautiful mountains was a nice cool and refreshing change from the heat of Atlanta. Lovely staff and excellent yoga, meditation classes and massages. Definitely recommend for a relaxing holiday. There's a vegetarian buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    All three meals are served buffet style. Unless booking a specific package that does include meals there is an extra charge for each.
