My family recently had dinner at Lake Rabun Restaurant, which was our second visit. The first was for Sunday Brunch last fall. Both times were excellent! The meal last Wednesday was one of the best we've ever had. The setting is equally worth mentioning. We dined on the outside porch, which had a nice view and was very enjoyable.

We found our room and bathroom far too small. The door to our room did not fit and had to be slammed to close it, There was also a window that did not close completely. Sounds could be heard from other rooms and hallways. Overall we did not think this was good value and would certainly not rank this as... More

Thank you for your visit and your response. The Lake Rabun Hotel prides itself on its unique qualities and old world charm. Because of the hotel's history, there are qualities of the building that go along with that (i.e. windows that swell during rain and settling doors). Some of the rooms are more cozy than what travelers are used to,... More

The Lake Rabun hotel is a real gem if you're looking for an affordable bed and breakfast experience in north Georgia. The staff is very attentive and the property is beautiful! It's driving distance from Tallulah Gorge where we hiked the next day. Be aware that the rooms are very small! We were in the Moonshine Room. There's no TV... More

We very much appreciate all of our guest who let us know all about their experiences (both positive and negative). The Lake Rabun Hotel is certainly a throwback to a time before TV's, cellphones, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There are some aspects of the hotel that cannot be helped in trying to keep with the traditional... More

My boyfriend and I decided to plan a day trip to hike Tallulah Gorge. We spent most of the morning and early afternoon exploring the park and then had a late lunch. We ended up having a longer lunch than planned (we were chatting away with the owner of Overlook BBQ - highly recommended!) and contemplated staying the night. I... More

We are so glad that you were able to come and join us for a spur of the moment getaway! Between the food, hiking, wineries, and various other activities, the mountains will certainly keep you busy. The Lake Rabun Hotel is the perfect spot to come and relax after you have been adventuring all day. Thank you again for taking... More

Actually, the title of this review should have been "The Best Getaway in North Georgia, Any Day of the Week!" I love the Lake Rabun Hotel. I spent two nights here in March 2014 (the Andreae Room, with a cozy fireplace I very much enjoyed using), and two nights in April 2014 (first night in the Andreae Room, second in... More

We stayed at the LRH for two week-days in May. We had been regular visitors back in the "real rustic" days back in the late 70's and were curious about the renovation after the hotel fell on hard times. The new owners did a superb job of fixing the sinking foundations and sagging roofs without compromising the look and feel... More

If you find the amenities in the old, well kept lodges of our national parks (like Yellowstone's Old Faithful Inn or Crater Lake Lodge) to your liking, then you will love the recently restored Lake Rabun Hotel. A charming jewel in northeast Georgia built in 1922, it boasts both a friendly, attentive staff, and a 5 star restaurant! The chef... More

I did my research on this hotel prior to booking. So I knew what to expect and what NOT to expect, therefore there were no failed expectations! My husband and I booked the Garden Room. It was rustic and charming! We had a small view of the lake and it felt more private then the "shared patio". I was nervous... More

We loved our two nights at Lake Rabun hotel! The hotel was so cute and charming. I loved the wood furniture through out the property and the quiet nooks available to cuddle with my husband.

Lake Rabun is a charming inn, converted from an old hunting lodge. The breakfast is terrific. We stayed one night and immediately left the next morning after breakfast, losing hundreds of dollars on a nonrefundable reservation. I've never done something like this before. It took us 5 hours to get there from North Carolina. However, the bed was so substandard... More
