Plenty things to enjoy on-site including golf course, tennis courts, cooking classes and winery
Remote location a downside for some
Château Élan makes for a premier meeting destination thanks to its four ballrooms, 12 conference rooms and tiered auditorium. The property's grounds also include a golf course, tennis courts, a winery, and a full-service spa. According to guests, the Château Élan packs quite a punch with the amenities it provides. There are seven restaurants that serve everything from French cuisine to traditional Irish pub fare, making it easy to find a menu that caters to your craving. If there is a perceived drawback to the Château Élan, it would be its remote location: The resort is about 46 miles northeast of Atlanta and a stay here will mean sacrificing an easy commute to Georgia's cities and airports. However, some say its secluded locale makes it all the more charming and relaxing for romantic getaways.
