  • Let me start by saying that the pictures and videos online are not an accurate representation of the current state of the property! This property is dated and not well maintained. Do your research...

  • The park had a large spectrum of events/attractions so no one was bored. The "Lights" was fun but a bit disorganized (understandable considering the size of the crowd. The staff did an excellent job.....  more

  • First time visit to Callaway Gardens and it did not disappoint. The birds of prey experience was awesome. The birds literally fly right past your head as the handlers talk about each bird. The butterfly conservatory was also very cool. Butterflies flying around you at all times, beautiful flowers and even aquatic turtles swimming around. We decided to buy a season pass. The woman that helped us at the visitor center was very nice, very helpful and very friendly. She explained all of the features of the park, explained all of the benefits of the season pass and made sure to let us know of the discounts we would receive inside the park with having that season pass. We will definitely be taking advantage of the pass over the next 12 months.
  • This quick and random trip was much needed! Me and my family loved it! The gardens were so cute! We missed out on the discovery center due to our own fault! The staff were all amazing! The beach was cool and so was the circus performance! Canโ€™t beat it for $24.99 with all those different things to do ๐Ÿ˜
  • My husband and I were just there this past weekend for a 1 night stay so we could see the Christmas lights. The whole experience was amazing. Everyone was so nice! We ate at The Piedmont Room for dinner and then the next morning we ate there for breakfast. That Restaurant has the BEST sweet tea! Thank you everyone for your courtesy and professionalism! we had a wonderful time!
  • My husband treated me to a 2 night stay in honor of my retirement! Just wow wow wow! The resort is beautiful! Completely renovated! Our room was beautiful with a fantastic view of the lake! We have to give props to Tevin at the front desk and Ebony in food service!! They were so personable! Every employee was terrific ๐Ÿ‘. The Fantasy of Lights was magical ๐Ÿ˜
  • My wife and I went for 2 nights this week. We had never been. Room was spacious, clean, and nicely appointed. Highly recommend the light tour, birds of prey show, and the butterfly exhibits. Trees still had a lot of color. Food was a little hit and miss. Skip the cafe at the discovery center. Piedmont for breakfast was a nice buffet but pricey. We had a late night snack at Casonโ€™s tap room and it was good. Service was exceptional. Charlie that helps with the luggage was great. Billy that drive the shuttle to the lights trolley was great as well. Definitely worth the trip.
