If you're lucky, you won't remember your hotel :/ Based on the reviews, I decided that our family should stay at Heron Cove rather than a hotel. I don't get enough vacation. We were traveling from NC to GA for a family wedding, staying Friday and Saturday nights. A hotel would have just been a place to watch TV in... More

First time staying and a B&B. The proprietors are two amazing people, the made my brother and Me right at home. We thought we were staying with family. All the hotels were sold out in town so we stayed here. So glad we did. The house is set on Lake Lanier and nestled in a wooded area. The rooms were... More

Heron Cove Guest House was the perfect place for a stopover between Atlanta and the mountains of North Carolina! The accommodations were extremely spacious, comfortable, and impeccably clean. Dee Dee and Carolyne were gracious hosts, and welcomed us warmly. The breakfast was fit for royalty! For those who enjoy the outdoors, Heron Cove is a lovely spot to enjoy some... More

I've never stayed at a B & B before. Heron Cove was my first and this experience from this point forward has the bar set pretty darn high! Carolyne and Dee Dee were the most hospitable hosts ever. They were friendly, helpful and their home was welcoming and comfortable. A stones throw from Lake Lanier Rowing Center with a beautiful... More

The breakfast was the finest - eggs, grits, home made biscuits, delicious coffee. Our apartment was very comfortable, tastefully decorated, and immaculately maintained. Our hosts treated us like royal friends. They are graceful conversationalists. We felt very welcome. We were in Gainesville to watch our daughter at the ACRA Rowing National Championships (Go Vandy!) and we loved our stay at... More

This cozy little Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful little jaunt into North Georgia (though not in the mountains just yet). The ladies that run Heron Cove are some of the most hospitable hosts I have ever had the pleasure to encounter - they made our weekend at Heron Cove comfortable and cozy. (And the breakfast was the best part:... More

We had to spend the week end in Gainesville for my daughter basketball tournament and we enjoyed this beautiful place and our hostesses. A very warm house full of light and peace. I hope we will play again in Gainesville just to come back to the Heron cove gust house!

We have been coming to the Heron Cove Guest House regularly since 2005 and each time we are so grateful we discovered this lovely restful spot. Sited on a beautiful and peaceful cove on Lake Lanier, the guest house offers a perfect combination of extremely comfortable and quiet accommodations, a beautiful setting, delicious food, and welcoming hosts. The owners are... More

Our stay at Heron Cove was truly a memorable experience. It far exceeded our expectations. Southern hospitality at its very finest. Breakfast was better than grandma used to make. (healthier too) Spacious room with comfortable bed. Everything was spic and span and hostesses were like family. We would love to visit again. Bob and Toni in Memphis .

I have to say the Heron Cove gives you the satisfying feeling that you're barging in on the relatives who actually like you.....and I promise you, you'll like them. That alone should be reason enough to make your reservations. The rooms are spacious and homey (in a good way.) The breakfasts are spectacular! Fresh food, locally sourced. I stayed in... More
