Lovely setting for a special meal. We shared a birthday with a dear friend. After asking the locals which restaurant they recommended. We loved it. Beautiful setting. Inspiring menu and great service. We had several dishes and they were all wonderful. The Blueberry, Rhubard,Basil (yes basil) cobbler was fantastic. The lake reminded me of one in upstate New York, it... More

We are so happy that we were able to make the birthday celebration special. The hotel was modeled after many Adirondack style hotels in upstate New York so you nailed it! We love having such a wonderful following in the community and are thrilled that locals recommend us. We look forward to seeing you again, and thank you for taking... More

This place is fabulous. We have been to The Lake Rabun Hotel many times. We just spent Labor Day Weekend there with no cellphones and no televisions. For techno addics free wifi is available. Rooms are comfy, staff bends over backwards and the restaurant is incredible, A comparable meal in Atlanta, if you could find one, would cost double.. To... More

The Lake Rabun Hotel is definitely the place to come if you want to unplug and relax without the distractions of televisions (which we do provide in the parlor and bar area) and cell phones. One of the best things about traveling to this beautiful corner of Georgia is the ability to simply unwind and let the cares of the... More

Very nice hotel. The food was excellent. We dined on the outside porch, which had a very nice view and was very enjoyable with my peach drink. I love ur breakfast with the fresh fruits every day. The room was very clean. Hotel staff very helpful. Thank you

We had a pretty miserable experience. What made it worse was the way that management handled it. We arrived and the Inn and it's surroundings look very little like the website. The pictures oversell the experience. We weren't expecting a luxurious experience but I expected much more than what we got. The bed was the most uncomfortable bed that we... More

We drove up from Tampa to meet and stay with friends at their lake house. We decided to met at the at the Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant for dinner.

"Feature Farmer" Thursdays is one of the many facets that we have all come to know and love. This special night is dedicated to our local farmers, whom we source from a great deal. May-October is a time in which a variety of local produce, meats, cheeses, honey, etcetera are available and we take advantage of that and invite the... More

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.
