Having just moved from New York, we found this thru a drive with a sports car club we are members of. The drive from Atlanta is well worth it, both scenic and fun. The restaurant is rustic and has a great country vibe. We sat on the back porch, the service was excellent,as was the food. Worth a visit for... More

We just stayed one night and it happened to be the night the restaurant was closed (we heard it is super from other guests). We even missed breakfast the next day as we had to head out early. Pros: Cozy, warm, inviting, lots of local art, two fun cats (one indoor short haired and one long haired sweetie outdoors on... More

Next time you must come when the restaurant is open (in season Wednesday-Saturday for dinner and Sunday brunch; off season Thursday-Saturday for dinner and Sunday brunch)! We also try to let our guests know that they are more than welcome to turn the fireplaces off and on at their leisure. Thank you so much for taking the time to write... More

right at Lake Rabun, this small historic BandB is a perfect get away spot. It has a rustic, inviting, "come on in" atmosphere with a competent and friendly staff that makes you feel right at home. A gourmet breakfast is included in the rate and the onsite restaurant offers top notch dinners Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights as well as... More

This place looks quaint but that's all it is. This place is so dusty I am sick. We spent Christmas here, the worst Christmas I have ever spent. The food is expensive, however welling to pay the price for a special occasion. I had rather eat at Waffle House. The only thing that made our trip special was that we... More

We journeyed up to Lake Rabun Hotel for a winter weekend just before Christmas and were delighted with the location, service and interesting people joining us there. The fireplace was going strong making for a logical stopping off place for conversations. Outside it was pretty cold and windy but there was no shortage of entertainment inside! The room was hard...

Had the pleasure of staying at this gem over the Thanksgiving Holiday. A wonderful experience. Outstanding service by all members of staff and the food in the restaurant was superb. Zack who was our waiter each evening took excellent care of us. Will definitely recommend to anyone going to the area.

I was booked in to the Legends Room - all rooms are small but totally adequate. The rustic charm of the hotel is the draw - the building is historic, but very comfortable and interesting. Ken was the host, and was an amazing man with historical facts, a gift of friendliness, personality, and a jack of all trades. He was... More

Really loved this hotel. The food was spectacular, the ambiance warm and inviting and the staff was truly lovely. The views from the hotel are really something not to be missed.
