Long Mountain Lodge
Ranked #4 of 8 Dahlonega B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 23, 2007

From the first phone call, booking our rooms, to the last good-bye wave from owner Dianne Quigley, my friends and I found Long Mountain Lodge a pure delight. The accommodations were spacious, clean, and well appointed, and the porches lent themselves to long periods of relaxation. The breakfast was delicious; we highly recommend the yeast raised waffles. =0)
The lodge is conveniently situated near waterfalls and walking paths, as well as the quaint town square in Dahlonega. We were all in need of a quick get-away from busy lives, and certainly found what we were looking for. We can't wait to go back.

Wow! How fortunate were we to find this gem in the mountains over a long Easter weekend! Diane and Tim have designed and built a fantastic, beautiful log cabin style bed and breakfast. The lodge was opened for business in Jan. 2007 and it still has that 'new home' smell: clean & fresh.

We stayed in the Wissenhunt Suite on the second floor. At first when I booked our reservation, I was concerned by the pictures on the web site, [--], that the rooms would be very small. Not the case at all--simply a trick of the camera. All of the rooms, especially the one we stayed in, were very large. The bed had a pillow-top mattress and was decorated with a lovely handmade quilt purchased from a local quilt shop on the square in Dahlonega. The bathroom was large--a walk-in shower stall and a jacuzzi tup. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the room, a small flat screen tv, DVD and vcr player. In the common room on the 1st floor, there are VHS tapes and DVD's that you can borrow to play in your room. Also in the room is a small desk that faces out to Wissenhunt Mountain and the lodge is equiped with wireless internet service. There is also a second entrance to the room that has a small deck with a table and 2 chairs, if you'd like to have your morning coffee outside while the sun comes up.

But I think what I liked best about the lodge was that Diane and Tim custom designed the house so that no one room shares a wall, floor, or ceiling with another room. So if you hate staying at bed & breakfasts because of hearing someone walk above your head or make noise all night next door, no fears. This is probably the quietest b & b I have ever stayed at. Our suite is above the kitchen, so in the mornings round 7:30, you may hear some cooking going on, but that only means it's time for Diane's delicious breakfast. Diane is a trained chef, and each morning was a treat to see what she would serve up. One morning was Belgian waffles that were so light, I thought I was eating a puff pastry. Another morning we had an authentic Irish breakfast, all the way down to the Irish sausages that Diane has shipped in from Nebraska.

There are cookies, popcorn, and soft drinks available all day in the common room, and at night, Diane prepares a snack with a wine split for each couple. Unbelievable service and attention to detail.

The lodge itself reminds me of the Pondorosa from the old Bonanza tv show. Very open, decorated with a mountain hunting/camping lodge theme. There is a large porch that extends along the front of the lodge where you can sit in a rocker and watch the sun set behind the mountains. Looking down into the valley, there is a small trout pond with a waterfall. Diane even provides fish food for the guests if you'd like to walk down the path to feed the trout. On the back of the lodge is a screened-in porch with tables, chairs and loveseats for relaxing, playing games or cards, or having breakfast outdoors (it was too cold for that when we were there--snow!).

All in all, I can't give high enough laudations to Diane and Tim for our wonderful, relaxing stay in the mountains. Be sure to ask Diane for recommendations of places to eat in town and about the local wineries.

Go now before everyone finds out about this place and you can't get a reservation!

We spent two nights at the lodge. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It was decorated in a rustic theme. There was a fireplace in our room that we were able to use fairly easily. Complimentary wine and cheese was offered in the afternoon as well as complimentary refreshments throughout the day. Breakfast was outstanding and served between 8:30 and 9:30. The views from the lodge of the surrounding mountains are fantastic and we saw a beautiful sunset the first night we were there. The owners were helpful in securing dinner reservations for us and in advising us about local vineyards and activities. We felt free to come and go from the lodge as we saw fit and our privacy was respected. There are two trout ponds on the premises that we enjoyed visiting. The driveway leading to the lodge is quite steep but most cars should be able to traverse it. We had wonderful stay here and would definitely go back when we visit the area again.
