Barnsley Gardens Part 1
Over the past six months, My Man and I have had to cancel two vacations due to f-ing cancer. One was our one week summer trip to Northern Michigan and the other was our 13 year anniversary cruise. After all the treatments and doctor appointments we were ready to get away. We wanted to take a trip that The Boy could go on and where they would have activities for him to do. We talked about going to a few places but in the end decided on Barnsley Gardens in Northern Ga. Reasons why we picked it:
1. No plane fare
2. Easy Drive
3. Things for The Boy to do
4. Good Food and Wine for me and My Man to eat/drink
5. Timber Friendly!!
Beyond being merely pet-friendly, our luxury Georgia resort offers guests an ideal getaway for dog lovers with more than 3,300 acres of natural beauty. Hike the historic grounds highlighted by architectural ruins and landscaped gardens, or snuggle fireside during the colder months in a cozy cottage living room. It’s enough to make pet lovers want to stay awhile.
Bring your furry friend for a getaway on any standard two-night package in a Suite or Arbor Cottage and we’ll waive the pet fee of $75 per stay during your visit. Please mention Pampered Pooch at the time of booking.
There is no better place in Georgia to travel with furry family members. With more than 10 miles of hiking trails and beautiful gardens to explore, outdoor sitting areas with fire pits, lawn games and outdoor dining venues such as the Beer Garden and Rice House Herb Garden, your four-legged friend is certain to feel like a pampered pooch.
There are no pet weight limits at Barnsley Gardens Resort. While we do not require pets to be crated, we do require that all dogs stay on leashes while in the village. All of our public facilities are open to pets, with the exception of the spa, fitness center, pool area and indoor restaurants (due to local health codes).
Pet friendly accommodations include our Garden or Meadow Suites and Arbor Cottages. Standard amenities for pets include pet beds, bowls, bottled water and treats. Pet sitting may be arranged with advance notice.
Barnsley Gardens Resort partners with PAWS Atlanta, a non-profit, no kill shelter dedicated to finding forever homes for dogs and cats.
How COOL is that!? Super cool!
We booked our trip for December 12th thru 15th. We asked for the Arbor Cottage thinking it would be perfect for the three of us and Timber. And it was! We arrived a little after 3pm and was able to check right in. Timber was so excited to see where he would be hanging out for the next three days.
They had a cushion for him to sleep on, snacks, a food and water dish and even a cool key-chain poop bag dispenser thingy! So nice! For us the had a box of goodies and two bottles of wine! They gave us a new box of filled with the goodies and two bottles of wine each day. We ended up taking home the six bottles of wine and will save them for the Christmas when we have family in town.
After we got settled in, we all took a walk around the property.
We had 5:30 dinner reservation at Woodlands Grill. We of course ordered way to much food and had to rolled out of there!
We walked back to the cottage and grabbed Timber. We heard the ruins would be all lit up and wanted to check it out. It was very cold out but the ruins looked beautiful!
After our walk, we went back to the cottage and lit a fire in the fire-place. It was a wonderful night! More to come!
