Bachelorette weekend suggestions near Atlanta, GA?

Myself, my fianceƩ, and two of our friends want to have a bachelorette party weekend in early June. We live in Atlanta, GA, and would like to stay within a two hour drive. Something less than $100 per person would also be ideal (not including food/gas.) We also need to bring our two small dogs with us. BUT I don't want to go camping - not in the traditional, sleep in a tent on the ground sort of way at least.

I'm really open to any suggestions though as long as they fit the criteria. We've already looked into getting a cabin (can't find one cheap enough), state park lodging (booked or non dog-friendly) and random motels in the mountains. (Possible, but not super exciting.)

Ideas? Thanks!

Try the Buckhead area.

Totally off the top of my head but when I think bachelorette, I think tacky. I think round beds, hot tubs, lots of drinking, rolling down a mountain in a giant hamster ball... in short, I think Gatlinburg, TN or alternately Pigeon Forge -- two towns going to an awful lot of trouble to take your mind off the fact that there is no reason at all that you should want to visit them. I would that for about $100/person you could customize a Vegas like experience with a nice cabin or hotel in either of these places -- and definitely check out zorbing.
