What can I say--this bed and breakfast was quite possibly the best decision my wife and I could have made when considering where to stay to close out our honeymoon. Being married in MN (my wife's from GA) we decided to spend a couple of days in the mountains before having a reception in Athens for those who couldn't make the trip. We selected Long Mountain after reading all of the great reviews and it lived up to and surpassed our expectations.
Being off-season for tourists and during the middle of the week, we had the whole place to ourselves for both nights! Dianne treated us like family--we felt like we had known her for years! The food was absolutely amazing, and she was able to tell us about all sorts of local attractions, both in Dahlonega and in the surrounding area, that we would find interesting. We're both into wine tasting and she personally called the wineries to make sure they were open and let them know we were coming (again, this being off season and mid week). I'd definitely recommend checking them out while you are in the area.
We liked it so much, in fact, that upon leaving we bought my wife's parents a gift certificate so they can experience it too! We will be returning as soon as we are able.
