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

My wife & I stayed here last month. It was "OK". The room was incredibly small but overall clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens were exceptional. There was an incredible amount of dust under the bed. The breakfast included was a nice touch but relatively bland.

I have been to this area many many years ago and swore I would go back. Finally did since I had a meeting in Callaway Gardens. My first night on my trip I picked this lodge.

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.

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 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.

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.
