If you are looking for a relaxing and charming B&B getaway, this is NOT the place. While the property is historical and the interior is elegant, the new owner doesn't have the experience to run the place properly. As two young professionals from Atlanta, we decided to take time off and relax in North Georgia. We splurged for the exec suite ($350/night) so we could enjoy the room amenities like fireplaces and bathtub. We were expecting a quaint, quiet, low-key B&B experience. However, after numerous mishaps, we would definitely recommend anyone considering this place to look elsewhere. Punch list of only a few issues: Amenities misrepresented Both fireplaces not functional (for years now- yet still advertised on websites) Bathtub had pink mold and hair (not from a head) Sheets not clean and smelled strongly of must Service Owner and majority of kitchen staff didn't wear masks (COVID times) Rushed us out of breakfast so owner could go to Costco (we showed up during the 15 minute breakfast window given) Restaurant staff was unprofessional and/or not knowledgeable of menu like wine list It felt like we were an inconvenience to the owner and staff to be there (and we were the only couple there for one of the nights) After our first night, we mentioned the condition of the room to the owner and he contacted someone to clean. When we returned to the room it was much cleaner, thankfully. But it made me wonder if it was even cleaned before, as we noticed the carpet had been vacuumed that day but not before our arrival. Anyway, the place has potential to be great one day and hope they can work out the kinks.…
The stay was nice, but fell short in a few areas. We enjoyed meeting the owner and everyone was very nice. The breakfast was a nice touch and we enjoyed the scenery. The internet was spotty, our room didn’t have a TV, and the bed was extremely uncomfortable. This historic property was charming and we’d love to try the restaurant for dinner if we’re ever back in the area.
We sat in the main dining area and had excellent service and food. All dinners presented to our party of four were an 11 on a scale of 10. Substitution on a few items was not a problem and our server struck an excellent balance of providing good service without being too intrusive. My personal compliments to the chef...we will be back.
What a wonderful evening out! Options in this neck of the woods are limited and we were reluctant based on prior reviews. Our food was only surpassed by wonderful service and an attentive chef. My meal was the Cesar salad followed by the filet with scallops . The salad was crisp and fresh, the filet was the perfect temperature and tender and the scallops were excellent. Our server was prompt and attentive and had the courtesy not to interrupt conversations when checking on our table. We will be back!
Dinner for four on Saturday night was very well done. The food was well prepared and presented well. The service was excellent. The Chef made a point to come to our table and talk with us about the dishes that had been served and made other suggestions. We were all pleased and impressed with Rabun Manor and will be returning frequently.
