We recently stayed at the Lily Creek Lodge for our anniversary. I would say it was an above average stay.
The grounds/gardens were absolutely beautiful. There was soft music playing outside which was very relaxing. Although we didn't get to enjoy the pool, it looked very inviting. I liked the fact the pool was away from the house, tucked away from everything. There was also a hot tub which you could enjoy.
I will say when we walked in to the main area, there was a strong musty smell which had me concerned that our room would smell that way (it did not). They will ask you for the $$ upfront when you get there which made me laugh. We have stayed at other B&B's that wait until you get settled--no biggie. We stayed in the Moonglow room which was nice...very eclectic/random furniture though. We had a walk in shower which was great. However, we lost hot water a few times during our showers. I'm not sure if everyone else was trying to shower at the same time and they ran out of hot water--somewhat frustrating.
We walked around Dahlonega and ate at a fabulous restaurant--Corkscrew Cafe right off the square. It was out of this world! My husband and I eat out a lot and we rated this restaurant in our top 10. He had the New york strip and I had the Pork loin--both very, very good. Great wine list as well. I heard there were other restaurants just as good.
We had breakfast at Lily Creek the next morning which was wonderful. You could sit outside or inside the dining room. The owners didn't come around much until breakfast but they were nice.
All in all, I would recommend staying there. It might be a little overpriced for what you get, but we don't enjoy staying in basic hotels. We love the ambiance of a B&B.
