Our first stay at a bed & breakfast and it was a wonderful two-night experience. The owner was very friendly and prepared an excellent breakfast with several courses each morning; he definitely does not want anyone to leave hungry! He also gave us a brief tour of the home and gave a little history. The rooms are very quiet, we did not hear any of the other guests and they also said they did not hear us at night. We really felt like we were the only ones there. We did eat breakfast with the other guests and enjoyed talking with them very much. There is also a great front porch with a swing and rocking chairs just to sit in to relax for a while. Toccoa is a small peaceful town, and the inn is located downtown where you can walk to an area with antique shops, an ice-cream shop, but we only found one open restaurant within walking distance. It is only about a 5 minute drive to Toccoa Falls and also a historic park. We planned to go tubing in Helen, GA (about 30-40 min drive) but did not want to stay in Helen because of the lack of clean-appearing hotels there. On our second day we took a 45 minute drive to go horseback riding and eat at the Dillard House in Dillard, GA. It was so nice to come back to the inn at the end of the afternoon.
