My husband and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate my birthday. I had read about the inn in a book called Historic Hotels in America, which I recommend to travelers looking for classic high-quality lodging across the U.S. Our room was in the carriage house, which was lovely. The bed was so comfortable, and the toiletries first-rate. The... More

Me and my husband celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary at the Smith House, we stayed overnight in room 14. It was WONDERFUL. The bathtub, the shower, the bed. I was not expecting it to be as nice. I was thinking old historic. I admit I was wrong. They even have Blvgari soaps and lotions. We will go back every year.

My wife carried me to Dahlonega for my birthday to relax. It was perfect. The room we stayed in had a wonderful bed and great bathroom and shower. The staff was very pleasant. I would recommend for couples wanting a bit of relaxation by browsing shops and enjoying sitting on the porch. We really hated going back home to the... More

We stayed in one of the suites and it was very roomy and helpful to have a full kitchen, washer and dryer. The decor is a bit dated (not like charming dated, more like 80's dated) and the walls were scuffed up, but that had no impact on the quality of our stay. Also, the stairs to the suite are... More

We stayed in room 11 on Saturday and found it lovely! Extremely clean, comfortable bed, great staff, great location. The location was excellent and we walked to all the shops downtown within 2 minutes. Would recommend it and stay here again!

We rented out the Smith House for our son's wedding in April. The rooms vary from cosy to colossal - all are decorated with fine furniture and decorations. One of the areas has a common lobby for guests to relax in. If you are there for lunch or dinner, you MUST have the fried chicken in the restaurant - it... More

Nice historic hotel especially for the price. Room was a bit cramped but this was a former house converted into hotel rooms with private baths. Walls are a bit thin when people are rocking outside your room jabbering away but the tv takes care of that. The guy that checked me in was very nice and attentive. There is a... More

My fiance and I visited delohnega for the day and were suggested the smith house by a local teacher at their high school. I honestly didn't even look to see what kind of restaurant it was, but I was disappointed. It is very overpriced, all you can eat it or not. $44 for two people after tip and the food... More

We took a northern guest to the Smith House after hearing about their famous family-style southern cooking. What a disappointment! The food was okay but way short of Mary Mac's or the OK Cafe in Atlanta. Service and setting were adequate but without charm - even for family style. It was definitely not worth the trip from Atlanta.

This was a very nice "hotel", though I don't really think hotel is the best description. It has more of a feel of a bed and breakfast inn. The Smith House is just that, a house. There are wood floors and staircases, siting areas both inside and out, and beautiful, home furnishings. The rooms are smaller than a normal hotel... More
