Absolute bliss is white sand and turquoise water for some travelers, while others are on cloud nine in the mountains, surrounded by lush forest. The latter will find Elysium deep in the Chattahoochee National Forest on this week's Escape.

Paradise Cabins, Resort and Spa is nestled on 35 acres in the North Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains and the heart of Georgia Wine Country. Stay for three nights in one of three private, spacious cabins—Magic Raven, Wolf's Den, or Rabbit Hill—including daily housekeeping service and late 2 p.m. checkout for $299. The cabins sleep up to four guests and boast hardwood floors, a stone fireplace, satellite TV, a fully equipped kitchen, and charcoal grill.

In the morning, take in the surrounding Eden with a cup of coffee on the covered deck—outfitted with rocking chairs—before meandering into town for grits, biscuits, and bacon at The Sawmill Place.

Pure nirvana for nature-lovers may be trout fishing in one of the nearby creeks: Rock Creek, Cooper Creek, or Noontootla Creek; swimming in Lake Nottely; horseback riding with A Step Above Stables or Adventure Trail Rides; tubing or canoeing the Toccoa River; hiking the Appalachian Trail; or whitewater rafting the Class III and IV rapids on the Ocoee River.

The area is also an oenophile's Shangri-la: Travel to Crane Creek Vineyards for two included wine tastings, then continue to Three Sisters Vineyards, the region's first family-operated winery, or Habersham Winery in the Austrian-style village of Helen.

Just be sure to leave plenty of time for heavenly relaxation at the resort's European-style day spa. Settle into the steaming rock sauna or aromatherapy lounge with a hot cup of tea before transitioning into your two included 30-minute Swedish massages.

Turns out that paradise was never lost, it was just hidden in the Georgia mountains.
