Jenna was all to happy to help with any request and did so with a smile. The hotel has its own charm with inviting common areas, cabin type rooms a lovely decks and garden areas.... More

After traveling completely around the world numerous times, I found one of the most unique places ever, right in my back yard. Unique, amazing food, and an outstanding owner and staff. My favorite is Jenna, who runs the front desk, gives a great welcoming tour of the facility, and then serves you breakfast with a smile. She has a sparkling... More

We stayed here for a weekend in June 2016. I found the staff extremely helpful, the Inn to be charming and historic as well. The property has a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces to relax. I found the breakfast to be wonderful and the attention to our needs was high quality. Thank you for a great stay!

I have to say that you are certainly being more than gracious than most guest would have been in your situation. Not having water available to our guests to shower is agreeably unacceptable.

We've been to the restaurant several times; we're local, so we've never stayed in the hotel. The restaurant is a mixed bag. The menu is somewhat limited, with six or seven entree choices. The food is prepared well, but I personally don't always care for the sauces and vegetables that make up the dish. I get the impression that they're... More

Overly friendly? That is certainly a first. I apologize for the over-friendliness of the staff. Next time, we will try to pipe down our enthusiasm for our guests and be simply "underly" friendly. As for the menu, there are seven menu items that do seem to cover all the bases. We serve pecan-crusted Georgia Mountain trout, seared sea scallops, grilled... More

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
