Beautiful

5 on November 04, 2016

This place was amazing. If you are looking to take in the beautiful nature then this is your place to go. You are close enough to town but far enough away to feel secluded. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more accomandating. I went to the spa, which I always say I'm going but never do, this time I decided to just do it. What a great decision. The atmosphere was so relaxing and inviting the you didn't want to leave. The staff was incredible and made you so comfortable. I would definitely go again.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your kind words. We will make sure to pass the review onto our spa staff. They do pride themselves in not only the highest quality services but the hospitality you get from a small spa verses a larger facility. Comfortable, professional and serene.


Truly Paradise!

4.6 on November 04, 2016

Rustic, quiet, clean, Ilke & Bob are great hosts. Very professional. The spa is to die for and the wine tasting too. We were spot on with our timing and viewed the mountains in their full fall foliage glory. Onsite dining is what you cook or bring home or the small plates Bob has for wine tasting, thus the lower rating. The location is very near Vogel State Park, the Russell Scenic Drive and Brasstown Bald. I would highly recommend Paradise Hills to couples or groups wanting to get away from it all. It would be a beautiful destination for a wedding.

Awesome Stay and Greatest Hidden Treasure

5 on November 04, 2016

This was an absolutely wonderful well needed getaway! It was a getaway for a friend of mine to celebrate our Birthdays and to have a relaxing time away from the outside world. This place did not let us down. Excellent service and personal service from the owners and staff. Everyone went out of there way to accommodate us.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to having you back when you need to escape the "outside world" again. We are the place where you can reconnect with yourself, with friends/family and with nature. :)


Sweet Piece of Paradise

4.6 on November 01, 2016

I loved this location. we camped out the night before across the street and booked the cabin for our remaining two nights. Everything we did was a short drive from this location. Unfortunately, when we arrived we were not able to our keys due to a glitch in their safe box. I called the owner and he promptly responded and reached out to a local colleague to get us access to the cabin. Other then that, the stay was simply perfect. Very clean with all of the items stated as in the description. Very cozy and we were able to grill out, light a fire, make pecan maple pancakes and taste their delicious wine. I wish we had more time to enjoy their other amenities but we will definitely be back!

Innkeeper Response

We rented Eagle's Nest, the smallest cabin and it was a very relaxing weekend for us. The cabin has everything one needs, was clean and comfortable.

Paradise Hills anniversary weekend

3.6 on September 07, 2016

We stayed in the two persons cabin for a weekend celebration. The grounds are rollings hills with a small vineyard. The cabin was rustic, with a romantic bathtub. The lodge includes an outdoor sitting area and a engaging, fun band. The downside is that the cabin is sparsely supplied and without internet.. The bathroom toiletries include only a small bar of soap. There were none of the fun sundries such as the sample size shampoos or hand cream. The kitchen was equally supplied. There are pans to cook, but no oil or cooking spray. You should bring your own coffee, sugar and creamer. The biggest issue is that everything closes down on Sunday which is nice to know beforehand. This means that if you signup for a weekend special, all the amenities such a massage, wine tasting and horseback riding need to be fit in on Saturday before 6 pm.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. All the comments made are correct. Though we are labeled a "resort", we are really a hybrid of the typical individual vacation rentals with a more "inn-like" level of customer service but not all the little extras like shampoo or in-cabin coffee. We do not leave ANY food or perishable products in the cabin to keep the highest level of cleanliness and "pest-free"ness since they are all individual cabins. You do have to bring any personal care items and any food items. Aside from that, we do offer everything else for your stay... all paper products, kitchen and bath soap products and all linens/towels; all pots, pan, utensils, all appliances including stove, refridgerator, microwave etc. We are located in a very Christian community so many business are closed on Sundays including us. We do offer Sunday arrivals and stays but our Spa, Tasting Bar and Lodge are closed. We are available the other 6 days of the week to provide those services as well as most surrounding businesses. As always, we will take all your comments under considerations and make any necessary improvements. We appreciate feedback and extend an invitation to call us directly should you want to discuss this further.


Relaxation and tranquility at its best!

4.6 on September 02, 2016

This was my husband and I's second time visiting Paradise Hills. We absolutely love the atmosphere. The customer service is outstanding along with the massage services and wine. The scenery is amazing and the wine tasting is a very laid back and enjoyable event. We will definitely be back again, it's such a great getaway!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad to be able to offer you and your husband a great escape. If there is ever something you want to recommend to us, please feel free to contact us directly at ilke@paradisehillsresort.com. We love to hear back from our guests. We hope to see you again soon.


Very relaxing atmosphere. Friendly. Accommodating.

No onsite dining

Innkeeper Response
Hi and thank you for taking the time to share your review. We pride ourselves in our guest services. Correct. We do not have a restaurant onsite. We have a very select menu of cheeses and meats to accompany our wines and an occasional "special" like our Mac & 4 Cheese Fritters. Yummy. The town of Blairsville, 4 miles away, has some great places to eat as well... There is fresh seafood at American Catch, authentic Italian cuisine at Italian Life Cafe, Tex Mex at Armadillo Grill and of course BBQ at Jim's. Hopefully, something for everyone. We hope to see you again in the near future.
