A beautiful and charming inn this is. The welcome staff includes Chloe the cat, that lives on the 2nd floor porch. The only negative if any, was the cat hair in the porch chairs. I didn't want to sit there with my wine, dressed for dinner. But the food is fabulous, and the whole atmosphere makes us want to go... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. We will certainly make sure to keep a better eye out for the front porch so that our guests are more comfortable. The third floor rooms were not available during your stay, as we are just finishing up construction. Luckily, we were able to get very creative with those rooms and have enjoyed... More

I have stayed at the hotel with my wife but recently visited to take my daughter to dinner. Hard to do justice to how good it was. She had the grouper special with fresh tomato salsa and a sauce with farro and parmesan cheese. Delicious. I had the pork chop, which was one of the best I've had in recent... More

We loved this place. We stayed at the hotel and had dinner here also. We had other reservations prior to our trip, but wished we would have eaten here every night! Service was amazing and the food was delicious! We had the steak and also the scallops and the crabcakes for appetizer. All were excellent!

What a great breakfast! I found the quality of the food to be very high and the helpfulness of all the staff to be applauded. A morning breakfast outside here is not to be missed.

We visited the hotel to specifically have breakfast there. One of the person's in our group used to own this hotel for 20 years. Her name is Barbara Gray.

I wanted to love this place and now I do! I was surprised that the hotel sent me a note today to compensate me for the plumbing issues we experienced. We enjoyed this property so much and feel in love with the charm. We wanted to go back and now we will!

We had brunch at the hotel and it was excellent as it had been in the past. It was our first visit there this year and the brunch menu and service were excellent as was the food. Ambiance is very nice and the people are all great.

The Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant is very elegant but certainly not stuffy. There were folks in for dinner that were all dressed up and at the next table there were diners in jeans or shorts. The menu is not huge but it is very thoughtful. I had pork shank with creamy grits, okra and tomatoes. One person ordered duck... More

We like to classify ourselves as "casual fine dining." I tell everyone that calls asking about the dress code to come in whatever you are comfortable in. While we serve some of the best food in the Northeast Georgia Mountains, we are still a part of the laid back lake community. Thank you for your kind words! More

We found this place while looking for Farm-to-table experiences in North Georgia. Celebrating our anniversary we had the best experience! We were greeted warmly by Ken at the front desk, and treated to a short history of the Inn. We were so entranced by the lobby, art, and garden that we turned down the opportunity to be seated early.
