Less than four miles outside of Peachtree Corners is a stately antebellum home located on a peaceful lawn in Old Norcross. If you love the idea of having a holiday party in an elegant, historic home, look no further than Flint Hill. During the month of December enjoy the tasteful Southern Elegance twist on holiday décor.

Sales Director Logan Fehrenbach described what is music to the ears of those who appreciate the charm of older homes, “…you will find this historic home abounding with character… From the original flooring, doors, and mantels, to the beautiful large wooden bar, this special event venue… is a step back in time.”

Through the paned glass windows of The Grand Ballroom where up to 180 guests can be seated, mingle, and dance the night away, one can view the manicured courtyard and access it through French doors.

The French doors also give way to The Covered Pavilion where up to 100 guests can be seated. This area can also be used as an outdoor dance floor. “Equipped with an extra bar and custom-fit sidewalls for the winter months, the covered pavilion is a grand addition to any special event,” said Fehrenbach.

The Courtyard with its lush greenery can seat up to 130 guests.

The home can accommodate a cocktail style reception of up to 200 guests inside. The maximum number of guests in the home and surrounding areas is 275.

How About a Holiday Party at Flint Hill?

Flint Hill is a full-service facility that hosts customized special events. You’ll meet with a complimentary Venue Coordinator who will help you with menu selections, a timeline for the event, and go over the layout of the facility, as well as the specifics of your event.

Their skilled team takes care of all of the set-up and break down, allowing you and your guests to simply show up and be present in celebrating together. This special event facility takes care of all of the necessities such as food, beverage, decor, and staffing—all in a one-stop-shop. “We strive to ensure that all of our clients have a fun and stress-free planning process with us,” said Fehrenbach.

A Divine Event is the exclusive vendor of all food, beverage, décor and staffing for this property. They offer award-winning holiday menus for the month of December. “We have a wide variety of menu options from holiday menus, brunch menus, southern style menus, Indian Fusion menus, classic style menus and more! We offer multiple styles of food services including: Cocktail Party-style buffets, formal buffets, interactive food stations, plated seated and served, late night stations and dessert stations,” divulged Fehrenbach.

Book it!

If you have your heart set on a particular date, it is recommended that you book 12-15 months in advance. For holiday parties, they usually book between three and five months out. However, they can host an event in as little as a 60-day booking window if the home is available.

Standard contract times for events at Flint Hill are five hours, with the opportunity to add additional time if desired. For holiday parties, however, they do offer the option of a three-hour block of time.

All event pricing is customized based on headcount, type of food service, and beverage package selections. Food and beverages are charged at a per person rate determined by the type of food service one selects and the beverage package one intends to offer guests.

Flint Hill will serve alcohol to guests 21 years of age and older. Some options include Beer and Wine, Full Bar, Coffee Stations, Signature Drinks, and Table Side Service. 

Pricing for corporate or personal holiday events:

  • Low:  $5,000
  • Mid:  $9,000 – $15,000
  • High: $16,000 – $22,000

Call Sales Director Logan Fehrenbach to inquire about this beautiful, historic home as the venue for your holiday event at 770-263-7669 Ext.101.

Ted’s Montana Grill

Ted’s Montana Grill’s world-famous Bacon Cheeseburger has everything: a perfectly cooked patty, fresh toppings and full flavor. The burger comes with the option of any of Ted’s regular or premium sides, but critics say pairing it with the salt and pepper onion rings is the way to go.

For an even tastier experience, follow this dish up with Ted’s Apple Pecan Crisp, which includes delicious apple pie, caramel sauce, a crunchy oatmeal pecan crust and vanilla ice cream.

Burger Fi

For vegetarians, or anyone who isn’t a beef fan, BurgerFi’s VegeFi Burger is a great option. It includes a vegan multigrain bun, a fresh-made veggie patty, BurgerFi sauce and your choice of toppings. It also comes with the option of one of the three sides: hand-cut fries, onion rings or the tasty Cry + Fry basket combo. To complete this already perfect meal, indulge in one of BurgerFi’s creamy milkshakes which comes in many flavors, including Red Velvet, vanilla, chocolate, black + white, strawberry, Oreo and coffee mocha.

Dog Days Hot Dogs & Burgers

The All-American Burger comes in three patty sizes: 6-oz., 1⁄2-pound and 12-oz. It’s topped with American cheese, onions, tomatoes and lettuce. It’s an all-time fan favorite at Dog Days Hot Dogs & Burgers because of its unforgettable flavor and classic taste.

This meal comes with your choice of side, but experienced diners recommend the cheesy cheese totchos, which are tater tots covered with mac and cheese, cheddar, mozzarella and nacho cheese sauce.

Marlow’s Tavern

If you’re dining at Marlow’s Tavern, the Classic Tavern Burger is a must. While the burger is simple, the delicate seasoning and fresh toppings take it to a whole new level. The burger comes with a toasted sesame brioche roll and the delicious house-made tomato bacon jam.

Marlow’s Tavern also offers a grilled chicken patty substitute for those who don’t eat beef. To top off this perfect meal, order a side of Marlow’s hand-cut Tavern fries.

BurgerIM Gourmet Burgers

If you’re dining at BurgerIM, you need to try the Spanish Beef Burger. It’s a nicely grilled patty topped with grilled jalapeño, leaf lettuce and pepper jack cheese. The flavors go together wonderfully, but the jalapeño peppers add a kick of spice that isn’t for everyone.

BurgerIM also offers you a choice of premium toppings, but I recommend adding bacon for some extra crunch. If you aren’t sure what kind of burger you want, BurgerIM also gives customers the opportunity to try multiples with their duo or trio packs.

Farm Burger

Farm Burger’s No. 2 Housemade Veggie Burger is another great alternative for vegans or vegetarians. The patty is made out of quinoa, black-eyed peas, kale, roasted mushrooms, sweet potatoes and spices that pull all the flavors together.

Veggie Burger pairs well with the Farm Burger fries, which are hand-cut, tossed with spicy garlic and covered in parmesan and herbs. For dessert, indulge in the Farm Burger classic chocolate milkshake, which gets sweeter with every sip.

Cheeseburger Bobby’s

Even though Cheeseburger Bobby’s classic burger is legendary, the Bucket List reigns supreme. This dish, which can be ordered off Bobby’s Specialty Burger List, includes two perfectly grilled beef patties, a fried egg, an onion ring, American cheese, Bobby’s sauce and a pickle.

While this sounds like a hodgepodge of different foods, the flavors meld perfectly with every bite. Pairing this burger with a side of freshly made onion rings makes the meal even more enjoyable.
