Moving from the mountains to the southwest part of the state, Wynfield Plantation offers upscale Southern charm in Albany. The cabins are available to rent during the winter off-season, allowing you to soak up the beautiful countryside.  After you stay, you’ll want to return in spring with your family, especially if you love to hunt. The 2,000 acres are ideal for Bobwhite Quail hunting, with gun dogs and Jeep transport included in your package.

We’re not leaving the beach out of this winter lodge roundup. The Lodge at Eagle Island is both rustic and luxurious, located on a 10-acre private island near Darien, so this cozy adventure is just for you and yours. Rent the lodge for 2-12 people to enjoy the gorgeous island views, a hot tub, fireplace…even crab traps for catching dinner!

BONUS

It won’t be here until 2018, but we need to mention Great Wolf Lodge, coming to LaGrange next year. The entire family can escape the cold at this indoor water park where the temperature is always 84-warm-degrees.
