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. Breakfast was included with our package. There wasn't a breakfast menu to make a selection; we were served what ever the chef decided to make... More

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

We absolutely loved our time at the Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant. We stayed in the Andrea room - it's on the lakeside of the hotel & has a fireplace, which we ran several times throughout the weekend as it was cold and rainy on Saturday. We arrived late on Friday (about 9pm) and we were still greeted by a... More

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were immediately impressed with the gorgeous location and view of the lake just across the street. The hotel was charming, especially the two resident cats (don't worry, they aren't allowed indoors) and the staff were very attentive and inviting. I created a bit of a snafoo by locking us out of our room almost... More

My wife and I decided to stay here for valentines. We got the Andrea room, very nice with gas fireplace. The food was awesome and the staff was great. This is an old inn that is setup for a romantic time. We will stay again.

We live in Clarkesville GA. We have heard about Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant. When we walked in the Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant, it was beautiful! Wooden furniture was amazing. We had reservations in the Restaurant with friends. We did not have to wait. The atmosphere was good, and the food was excellent. We will go there again!
