Relax at the Quiet Chateau Elan
Within the sleepy suburb of Braselton, about 50 miles northwest of Atlanta, sits the Chateau Elan.

The resort’s winery offers tastings and tours and gives guests the opportunity to print their own wine labels. There are seven dining options on the grounds, including a restaurant and a bar at the pool. There’s also a full spa, which offers guests the chance to stay in the spa suites, giving them access to all the spa’s amenities at their fingertips.
