An Atlanta Getaway at the Sassafras Treehouse

If you’re in the metro Atlanta, I’m sure you’ve heard of North Georgia for their incredible views, their impressive mountain hikes, and their unique experiences. It’s honestly the perfect spot for a quick weekend getaway if you don’t have a lot of time and/or don’t want to go too far, especially if you’re a fan of the outdoors. So let me introduce you to the Sassafras Treehouse if you’re ready for an Atlanta getaway.

How to Book your Getaway

I found the Sassafras Treehouse on Airbnb while casually perusing the site one day. I sent it to my sister, unable to contain how impressed I was with the place. She convinced me to book a weekend and before I knew it, a sister weekend getaway was on our hands. After my stay, I learned you can book directly with Wander Chatt and save yourself the extra fees associated with Airbnb. Either way you book, it definitely won’t be a cheap stay, but I was willing to splurge this one time. If you rarely treat yourself, this might be a time to do so.

Distance to your Getaway

Situated about a two-hour drive from Atlanta, the Sassafras Treehouse is the perfect distance for a staycation weekend getaway! The treehouse is close enough that we drove up after work on Friday and far enough that we felt like were in our own little world.

Amenities in/around the Treehouse

Enjoying the hot tub

All the details of this place were so well thought out. Be mindful it is a “tiny home”, but it surely doesn’t feel that way. With the kitchenette, hot tub, bath tub, outdoor shower, and even down to the victrola – the stress of everyday life just seemed to melt away! There is a pizza oven, an outdoor hammock, and a fire pit. The sunrise views are truly a magical experience.

Nearby Attractions

We opted to stay at the treehouse the whole weekend; we did not move that car. We brought food to make meals and enjoyed the entirety of our stay exploring the space. However, if you’re interested in checking out the area – Cloudland Canyon State Park is not too far. Neither is Chattanooga, Tennessee (which is where we ate breakfast at Ruby Slipper on our way back home). Lookout Mountain and Lookout Winery/Pizzeria are additional options to consider.

An Atlanta Getaway Review

I don’t do staycations often. I didn’t realize how much I needed a weekend of doing absolutely nothing and no expectations from me or for me. If you want to see my experience at the Sassafras Treehouse, check out this post or this one. I also have an entire recap of our Atlanta getaway weekend on Instagram highlights. How do you feel about weekend staycations / getaways? Have you done one before? Would you consider doing one? Let me know in the comments!

As always, thank you for supporting Life with Larissa. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
