The General Woods Inn is in Rising Fawn, Georgia - the tiny corner of Georgia on I-59 between Fort Payne and Chattanooga. It is 2 hours away from Birmingham, and 25 minutes from Chattanooga - perfect for a weekend getaway!
We discovered it while trying to find somewhere to get away to for my Birthday, and I'm SO glad that we did. It is the most gorgeous, scenic, peaceful place I've ever stayed!
I can't believe I've not found it sooner. Apparently the rest of the world already discovered it - the three people before us in the guest book were from Ireland, Canada, and England. If it's worth their trip (and it was!!), then it is certainly worthwhile for us to go to!
Here’s the view of the Bed and Breakfast:
We stayed in The Patterson Room, which was roomy and romantic:
(There are only three rooms for rent, so the peacefulness is unmatched!)
We were greeted upon arriving in our bedroom with this beautiful bouquet of flowers picked out of the gardens:
The house is named after the Man of the house, who is a Brigadier General in the US Army. He is often in D.C., so his wife Nadine decided to turn their home into a B&B to have people around while he was gone. The house is decorated with fascinating memorabilia from his long military career:
He happened to be here this weekend, so he sat and chatted with us about all sorts of fascinating things while we ate our breakfast.
And, just because this place is so fabulous, I have to share some more pictures.
The back gardens, photographed from the also-roomy back porch right off of our bedroom:
I saw the flyer on their wedding package, and it is unbelievably affordable - and includes a TON of amenities!
We had planned on eating breakfast on the front porch, but the mountain sun was so blinding that I couldn’t open my eyes:
I can't WAIT to go back to the Inn, and I would highly recommend it as the most wonderful, serene place I've ever stayed!
