Our company rented the entire inn for a staff retreat. They took care of everything, meals included. Everyone had a wonderful time! It was wonderful not having to worry about anything. The service was excellent, and each staff member we met was very kind and attentive. It was like they anticipated all of our needs in advance. Overall everything- the... More

Inn keepers & help were very helpful. The breakfast was excellent. However, I use a wheelchair and found that there was no handicap shower available, & not even a bench to use to put in the bathtub to take a shower. The area available for use during the evening hours for tv watching, reading, snacks was down several steps &... More

I loved every little thing about this bed and breakfast. The rooms were cozy and full of charm from a bygone era. The sheets were ridiculously soft. The grounds are lush and well-kept. The in-room coffee maker made a great cup, and the complimentary wifi was strong enough to stream movies. Some of the best waterfalls in Georgia are a... More
