Description: The Mountain Creek Inn provides comfy lodging for visitors to Callaway Gardens in a charming, home-styled country fashion. The Inn boasts rooms completely renovated in 2013, featuring repurposed furniture, new carpet and enhanced décor. Callaway proudly partnered with the Wounded Warriors program to make these new rooms possible. Anyone who visited the Inn before may not recognize their room when they open their door! Inn amenities include a swimming pool, fitness center and two restaurants featuring the Plant Room, which offers a daily breakfast buffet and mouth-watering dinner buffets. Free WiFi access is available in all guest rooms, as well as the lobby and the 10,000-square-foot Mountain Creek Ballrooms.

Room amenities: In-room coffee, hair dryer, cable TV, iron/board and desk. Vanity area separate from toilet/shower area. Road Scholar will request rooms close to the outdoor pool. The room has either two double beds or a king size bed.

Facility amenities: Callaway is comprised of 13,000 acres of natural and man-made beauty. 2500 acres are open to the public with 14 lakes, spring fed streams and forests to delight anyone who loves the outdoors. This is a unique public garden in that it was designed to be a place of refuge and solace for the people and not just for the Callaway family. The natural landscaping combined with the more formal areas make it a truly spectacular place. The displays at the horticultural and discovery center change frequently, so that there is a new presentation with each of the seasons. Not only can the gardens be enjoyed by automobile, but there is approximately an 8-12 mile bicycle/walking trail that accesses most of the major venues (e.g. butterfly center, chapel, tennis courts, golf course, etc.) For summer programs a white sand lake beach, a putt-putt golf course and shuffle board as well as ping-pong are all part of the what Callaway has to offer.
