Great Romantic Getaways: Stone Mountain, GA, with Videos

Updated on August 30, 2013

If you’re near Atlanta, there’s a great romantic getaway awaiting you at Stone Mountain! It's home to some of the most romantic lodgings anywhere. The Village Inn is the perfect spot for a wonderful escape with your significant other - for Valentine's Day, an anniversary, a first or second honeymoon, or any time you want to re-connect with each other. The historic antebellum bed-and-breakfast inn was built in the 1820s to accommodate weary travelers on their journeys. During the Civil War, the inn was used as a hospital for wounded soldiers, thereby allowing it to escape Sherman’s burning of Atlanta on his march across the defeated South.

In 1995, the old inn was lovingly restored, and today it houses six beautiful guestrooms. Each room is thoughtfully decorated with charming antiques and has a cozy gas fireplace, but the comforts are all modern: whirlpool tubs for two, coffee makers, hair dryers, climate control, irons, cable TV, and private phones.

Included with your room is a delicious sit-down breakfast of delicacies like French toast stuffed with raspberries, breakfast casseroles, and homemade biscuits. Snacks and beverages throughout the day are also offered. Rooms start at just $129 per night.

What makes the Village Inn so romantic? One thing is the rooms themselves. They make guests feel as if they’ve traveled to a simpler, quieter time. After a nice bubble bath for two, guests can snuggle up in front of the fire on chilly nights. To learn more about the inn, watch the video below.

During the day, you’ll find plenty of activities. Of course, the most obvious venue for entertainment is Stone Mountain Park. The two of you can go on a nature walk, hike to the top of the mountain, or cycle around the park on your bikes. Two excellent golf courses are adjacent to Stone Mountain, also. You might want to pack a picnic to enjoy at one of the scenic spots like next to the lake or at the covered bridge and grist mill. Other activities include train rides, cable car rides, museums, and nighttime laser light shows.

Atlanta is only a few miles away, and of course, there’s no end to the entertainment there! Take in a show at the fabulous Fox Theater, view an art exhibit at the High Museum, stroll through Underground Atlanta, or see the animals at Zoo Atlanta. The city is also home to the world’s largest aquarium, and that’s a must-see when you’re in the area.

When it comes to dining, you won’t even have to leave the Village. The Sycamore Grill is housed in an old Charleston townhouse hotel and serves intimate meals on linen, china, and crystal. Popular dishes include their Black Angus filet, the pan-seared sea bass, the broiled lobster, and the New Zealand rack of lamb. They also serve scrumptious desserts and have an extensive wine list featuring both domestic and imported wines. On the weekends, the Grill serves a fantastic brunch from 10a.m. until 3p.m., so sleep as late as you like!

Also in Stone Mountain Village is Mama Mia’s. This quaint restaurant serves a tasty New York style pizza, along with homemade pasta and seafood, chicken, meat, and eggplant dishes. The atmosphere is totally laid back and casual.

Another great place to eat in Stone Mountain is the Village Corner. It’s a German bakery, a restaurant, and a tavern all rolled into one. It’s high energy and fun! The full service bar is open every day.

Another fun place to eat in Stone Mountain is Continental Park Café, which serves European dishes – especially those from the Mediterranean. Fresh fruits, salads, coffee drinks, gourmet pastries, homemade soups, and pasta dishes are available for lunch and dinner in this cozy, casual eatery.

For a romantic night of dinner and dancing, visit Hairston’s Dinner Club. This is a sophisticated venue with an upscale menu, live music, and a mature over-30 crowd. They specialize in large servings of seafood and steaks, but their pecan-crusted chicken with cognac sauce is nothing to sneeze at! Call in advance for reservations.

If shopping is your activity of choice, Stone Mountain and Atlanta will not disappoint. The Village shops sell imported coffees and wines, handbags, antiques, fragrances, sporting goods, books, art, and gifts. Nearby Stone Mountain has several shopping centers and malls, and Atlanta proper is loaded with all kinds of shopping. Be sure to visit the world-famous Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza for an incomparable upscale shopping adventure!

Whether you spend the daylight hours of your romantic getaway quietly by the serene lake in the Park, or on the go in the hustle and bustle of Atlanta, at night you can return to your cozy room at the inn for some peaceful “alone” time. It’s the best of both worlds!
