Sip & Eclipse Package at Chateau Elan Resort

Chateau Elan Sip & Eclipse Package

Watching the total solar eclipse of the sun on Monday, August 21st is going to be an event that not one of us will ever forget, especially if you opt for the Sip & Eclipse Package at Chateau Elan Resort.

What Will You Remember About the Eclipse?

You might remember trying to fill your car with gas at the same time as everyone else who owns a motor vehicle.  You might remember saying at 3 PM — in unison with a kajillion other Americans — let’s go to McDonald’s!  You might always remember trying to find a bathroom clean enough for The Princess, as you wander unknown roads in North Georgia before a bladder bursts in your Beemer.

Or, you might joyously remember taking Interstate 85 to Exit 126, a sumptuous stroll away from your private palace, Chateau Elan in Braselton, Georgia.

If you’re used to staying at motels with a big 6 or 8 on a tall yellow sign, wait until you get a load of the luxury at Chateau Elan.  In my travels as an unknown travel writer, I’ve stayed in places that were so sketchy that I used a facecloth to hold the bedspread only long enough to fling it off the bed into a corner.  Then, I slept in my clothes.

That ain’t life at Chateau Elan, bucko.  Heck, no.  This is life at Chateau Elan:

  • Lavish Bathroom
  • Oversized Tub and Separate Shower
  • Desk with Data and Voice Mail
  • 40″ Flat Screen Television
  • In-Room Laptop Safe
  • Cable TV with Pay Movies
  • Mini-Fridge
  • Coffee Maker
  • Hair Dryer
  • Robes
  • Free Wireless Internet
  • Access to Fitness Center
  • Access to Swimming Pool and Hot Tub

Not to mention tennis courts, golf courses, spas and room to land your very best helicopter.

Have I personally stayed there?  No.  Only because it would take a SWAT team to get me to leave.

Pedal or hike your way throughout our beautiful 3,500 acre property.  Enjoy the private roads of our estate or off-the-beaten-path trails through canopied forests of trees, quiet nature trails surrounding our equestrian center, and past acres of vineyards.

Join their special event for eclipse watchers who want to have happy memories of the day.

You are invited to spend either Sunday night or Monday night — or the rest of your life — to watch the solar eclipse and sample their winery’s finest.  Oh, did I forget to mention the winery?  Sorry.

Sip & Eclipse Package 

Overnight accommodations at the Inn, breakfast for two in Versailles the following morning.  A wine flight for two at the Cellar Door tasting bar (8 wines).  Preferred lawn seating for the total solar eclipse on Monday 8/21, with viewing glasses.  Begin your wine flight on Monday afternoon at 2:00, so you can sip your wine during the eclipse!

Still thinking of hiking to the top of Brasstown Bald — Georgia’s highest peak — to view the eclipse?

That’s the only way up.  There are no more tickets available there for cars on the 21st.

Skip the traffic.  Forget the hassle of sharing North Georgia’s forest roads with a bajillion other families who are heading back home all at once.

One more thing.  Where would you rather be if it rains?

Choose wisely.  Choose Chateau Elan’s Sip & Eclipse.
