Great Family Time at Callaway Gardens! A review of Callaway Gardens Resort
My family just returned from a Thursday-Sunday stay at Callaway Gardens, Georgia, and wish we could've stayed much longer. Our party included my husband and I along with our two daughters and their husbands. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage and thoroughly loved it! The cottage was fully furnished, and the kitchen fully equipped with Range, microwave oven, Fridge, coffeemakers, toaster, and all dishes, pans, etc. We really enjoyed the screened-in porch with ceiling fan...we played cards and games there each evening. Each bedroom as well as living area had a nice TV with cable, and all rooms had ceiling fans. We requested extra towels, and received twice as many as we had asked for. The cottage staff was more than accomodating to our every request. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful... you could tell they wanted you to enjoy yourself. The beach was very nice and large with great activities for everyone. We also really enjoyed the Birds of Prey program and the butterfly exhibit, along with the victory garden south...we bought some tomatoes and they were dellicious! We ate at six of the different restaurants there, and found all food and beverages to be very good. We had a special anniversary dinner at the Gardens Restaurant which was absolutely wonderful. We also enjoyed the Friday night seafood buffet at the Inn as well as a lovely dinner in the restaurant in the conference-cottage check in area. This is a very relaxing place, with activity (or lack of activity) to please everyone. Lots of offerings for children as well as adults. I had read some bad reviews of Callaway before we went, but I suggest you disregard those. We found the rooms, food, service, attractions and activities, staff and grounds very, very nice. We would not hesitate to recommend Callaway and look forward to going back sometime for a longer stay.
