My husband and I had a good stay at The Lake Rabun Hotel. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The renovation of this old home was well done although the rooms are very small with paper thin walls wherever could hear everything but cozy. The restaurant was the definite highlight. Food was amazing!!!Beautifully prepared and presented,... More

I chose Lake Rabun Hotel to host my wedding in May 2015. To say that everything was perfect and wonderful is not quite enough. We chose to host both the ceremony and reception at the hotel, so we rented all of the rooms (+ the entire cottage) for the entire weekend, filling them with family and close friends.

We visited the Lake Rabun Hotel for my milestone birthday for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. It was incredibly quaint and the service from Ken, Josh and Jenna was extraordinary.

Just spent a wonderful relaxing weekend at this B&B and it was everything I expected from the reviews. We stayed in the Tallulah room and while it was small it was cozy and certainly enough room for two to get around. I loved the rustic decor and we spent the first 2 hours relaxing on the upper porch reading and... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent 3 night at this awesome little hotel. The area is beautiful and Lake Rabun was so relaxing. We rented a pontoon boat and just relaxed on the lake. The food truck at Hall's boathouse was perfect for a late lunch in the shade. The breakfast provided was excellent and we had dinner at the... More

This two night stay was an anniversary get-away to this area of North Georgia that we love. We wanted the rustic feel of a mountain cabin with the amenities of a hotel and the charm of a B&B.

We were coming to this area for the first time to do some family history exploration and picked the hotel because of location. The property was gleaming from a fresh, spring rain and couldn't have been prettier. Ken was welcoming and informative about the history of the former Hunting Lodge. From porches, sitting areas and tv/game room area, the decor... More

After reading a review of the restaurant in Blue Ridge magazine, we decided to book a room as we were traveling through GA. Unfortunately, our travels brought us on a Mon. night and the restaurant was not open. The hotel is rustic but charming and we got a good deal being off-season. However, I cannot recommend the Moonshine room, due... More

It is true that the Moonshine Room is one of our smallest rooms. Because we are aware of that fact, we try to make each aspect of the room top notch (i.e. mattress quality and bathroom tidiness). Since the hotel was refurbished in 2008, the room size was sacrificed in order to accommodate private baths in all of the rooms.... More

This hotel is a great romantic getaway if you want a quiet retreat, a place to relax, talk with other guests or find a comfy reading spot. This hotel was built in the 1920's and has all of the original charm. It is mostly stone and wood, each room is different and the whole place has immense character. It is... More
