We decided to splurge on the New Year's Eve special menu at the Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant and we were glad we did. Our friends had never eaten at the inn and they were very impressed with the walk up to the Inn and the quaint waiting area. We were greeted immediately and were seated in a timely manner.... More

The reason I do not recommend this place is because it is so dusty. They have housekeeping but I think all they do is make beds and clean the bathrooms. Dusting is out of the question.

We have been by this place many times over the years, and today after scheduling a time for Christmas Brunch, we made it happen. This place has character galore, plus charm of a place nearly 100 years old, and lastly it sits above the lake. People were very nice, and we had a comfy and cozy little nook for our... More

We spent a lovely long weekend at this rustic hotel with a blazing fire in the stone fireplace and great food in the restaurant. The room was small but comfortable - lovely bed and great shower!! Self serve coffee and tea right outside the door - plus fresh cookies from the kitchen. Dinner was fabulous - farm to table -... More

A special birthday was celebrated at the Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant this past summer. A southern staple, fried chicken, was amazing! The setting is extraordinary. A must visit for guests to Northeast Georgia.

We tried the pecan crusted trout we had read about in another review, and it was really delicious. The side dishes were also unusual and scrumptious. I enjoyed a glass of the local wine which I thoroughly enjoyed, but I thought it was a bit pricy at $10 a glass. This restaurant is difficult to find and requires a good... More

My husband and I ate dinner here while staying in the hotel. The food was wonderful and we were pleased to have so many tasty veggie options to make a meal from. We will happily dine here again when we return to the area.

As my brother was in town visiting, he wanted to take my husband & I out for a nice dinner to celebrate my birthday. We've been to Lake Rabun in years past & always loved it. My only regret is that the scallops were removed from the menu a couple of days prior to our dinner, in an effort to... More
