If you want old country charm this is the place. As soon as you walk in you feel as though it could be back in the day!! Even the old wood floors are uneven & you may find a cat resting comfortably on an old loveseat. Be sure to stop at the bar before dinner. Derek is an awesome bartender!... More

There are not enough superlatives to describe our lovely stay at the Lake Rabun Hotel. It is charming on the outside and inside and each room that you step into will put a smile on your face. We felt like we had taken a step back in time; perfect place to unplug, relax and chill. Close to major attractions too.... More

We stayed one night at this 1922 hotel/inn near beautiful Lake Rabun. The hotel once had a view of the lake (a new home has blocked the view) and it's sense of arrival is compromised by a large cement parking lot on one side and the road on the other. Still the hotel had its own charm and history. We... More

Loved this hotel. So quiet and peaceful. Small room but filled with history. Very pretty nearby lake. Close to Clayton for a wonderful dinner at Fortify. Will definitely be back. Nearby Annie's country store was great place to stop by for cold drink and sandwich or dessert.

This hotel is as beautful as on the pictures... It is so romantic and peaceful and the surroundings are stunning. We loved our stay.

Excellent location, with beautiful lake just round the corner! The in house restaurant was very good, with great staff! A truly different experience from any other hotel, that I stayed in. So glad I visited! This is a authentic hunting lodge conversion, so be aware there is no lift, which would spoil the magic if installed.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant celebrated its 90th birthday in 2012. It's the last surviving mountain lodge on a lake in Georgia. Because it has stayed true to the look and the feeling of another, perhaps more peaceful, time, it's been called both a regional and a national treasure. For decades generations have enjoyed the beauty of the lake and mountains. Carefully restored by preservationists in 2008 to maintain its ancestral charm, it features gardens of native plants, rock pillars and walkways, locust log decks, and balconies with views of Lake Rabun and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. Lake Rabun is one of the most beautiful lakes in the mountains of North Georgia. ... more   less
