About Your Visit to Second Wind


• You can stay anywhere from a weekend or long weekend to a week (6 nights).

• One guest and caregiver can visit at a time. It is a 2-bedroom cottage so we limit occupancy to 3 at the most. This is to make sure the visit is a relaxing retreat for the patient and caregiver, and not a family vacation that might involve the patient waiting on others. Each patient must have someone who is well (a spouse, friend or caregiver) to come with them.

• The Retreat is approximately 2 hours from Atlanta near Blue Ridge GA, and guests provide their own transportation to and from the Retreat. Guests should arrive before dark since our back roads signs and landmarks can be tough to spot after dark.

• To keep Second Wind Retreat as clean and healthful as possible, pets and smoking are not permitted.

• While we don't have cable, the Retreat is stocked with books, magazines, games and a home entertainment center with a library of DVDs and CDs.

• To find us, use these Directions to the Retreat from Atlanta. If you're coming from another location, be sure you use these directions starting from Blue Ridge rather than a GPS, MapQuest, etc. We're located on a gravel road that leads into the National Forest, and GPS systems aren't accurate here.

• The Retreat has a fully appointed kitchen with stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishes, basic cooking utensils, etc. Our guests bring what they feel like eating while they're here. We do have a wonderful lady who donates a homemade vanilla pound cake for each guest!

• All sheets, towels and paper products are provided by the Retreat.
