In December my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at then Lake Rabun Hotel. We have stayed at LRH in the past and keep returning because it is such a lovely place and the staff now feel like old friends. We stayed in the Andrea Room (with the fireplace) and had dinner in the restaurant. Dinner was wonderful and... More

Small hotel but nice charm. Beautiful lake community just a few minutes from white water rafting on the Chattooga and great hiking in the Tallulah River Gorge. Walls are a bit thin so we ready to hear the other folks dining or staying in the hotel but otherwise rooms were good (one with a fireplace) and you can get a... More

We chose this destination to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We are quite familiar with N. GA, but wanted a place with an intimate atmosphere. This was our first stay at this hotel. We were both quite happy with our stay, including dinner and breakfast. We had very friendly, attentive service, and a group of very congenial fellow guests. With that... More

We have stayed here twice and enjoyed it immensely. So quaint and cozy. It feels like home when you enter the door. Each room has a different theme, so if you want a particular one, be sure to book very early especially at holidays or in the fall. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is renowned for... More

We enjoyed a delicious holiday brunch on Christmas Day. The food was wonderful - my husband had the trout and said it was the best ever. My quiche was tasty and perfect with a small side salad. Our waiter was terrific and the host made sure every detail was attended to. Thank you.

As a short getaway from Atlanta's holiday hustle and bustle we drove up (1.5 hr drive ) on Saturday for an evenings stay. The inn is charming!

The TRUE PLEASURE of The Lake Rabun Hotel is the mind set. U need to understand it is an OLD fishing lodge built in 1922. There is Not a huge lavish suite with plush carpet under your toes. There is a couple of soft leather wing backs setting in front of a big stone fire pace. We found them the... More

This hotel is such an interesting gem that I discovered on a hiking weekend. I would say that the best feature of the hotel was the clientele that it attracts, certainly at this time of the year.
