Old Edwards' We Love Locals Promotion

If you live in Macon, Jackson, Transylvania, or Rabun counties, you no doubt feel blessed simply to live here. Well, here’s another reason to rejoice –  the Old Edwards Inn and Spa’s winter promotion, “We Love Locals.”

January through March, Sundays through Thursdays, local residents can enjoy special rates at this award-winning hotel. If the winter blahs have you dreaming of getting away, you’re in luck. You only have to make a quick trip to Highlands and you’ll be transported to the elegance of a European style resort.

Imagine this: you arrive on a cold grey Sunday, let’s say about 3:00 P.M. You relax in the Hummingbird Lounge with a glass of champagne or a cocktail and then leisurely make your way to your room and plan the rest of your “stay-cation.”

In the morning, you wake up with a $15 fitness or yoga class and have already scheduled a 50-minute treatment at the Spa. Is it a massage or a facial? Why not both?

Afterwards, you treat yourself to the luxurious Spa amenities like the mineral whirlpool or sauna and then rinse off in the Rainforest shower. After you slip into one of their fluffy robes you enjoy a cup of herbal tea as you sit by the fireplace and relax. 

Knowing you have dinner reservations at Madison’s, you ask to see the Spa Café menu and enjoy a light bite (yes, you’re still in your robe). Your nap leaves you refreshed and ready for some retail therapy so you go to Acorn’s Boutique and Acorn’s on Church where they’re offering discounts during the months of January and February.

 You’ve already scheduled a complimentary Jane Iredale Make-up Consultation at The Spa and the experts there have you looking your best. You dress for dinner, walk downstairs and are treated to a sumptuous meal, created by Executive Chef Chris Huerta.

And new this year, locals can also take advantage of the We Love Locals savings at Half Mile Farm, a luxury country inn by Old Edwards. At Half Mile Farm, wake up to a farm-fresh breakfast each morning and ease into the evening with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres.

Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? It can be yours when you take advantage of the We Love Locals at The Old Edwards Inn and Spa or Half Mile Farm in Highlands. Make sure you bring a photo ID with you as proof of residency. For all the details, visit OldEdwardsInn.com or call them at (866) 526-8008.
