My boyfriend surprised me with a short stay here for my 21st birthday. It was last minute so we were only staying for one night. He said that he had called to try to get a room but with the place only havin 8 rooms we almost didn't get to stay, there was a last minute cancellation so they upgraded our room and for some other reason we got a discount as well (cheaper is always better!!) so we checked in smoothly around 4:30. Since it was last minute we were almost unable to get a couples massage scheduled for the next morning but before we sat down to dinner they had assured us our massage would be available. Awesome! The staff was excellent. They all seemed like they were a family and got a long really well and actually enjoyed working there. Our upgraded room was named Lake Rabun. It was wonderful. Clean and newly renovated. Right outside our window was a little man made waterfall/pond so we opened the window. Very relaxing. It gave it a nice little touch of mountains and even more relaxation. For dinner we ate the restaurant which was heaven in my mouth!! I had the Pan Roasted Chicken. Amazing. Great value for the price. The bed in our room was wonderful. My second favorite part was the complimentary breakfast. Every morning the chef chooses whatever he wants and that is what is served. SO GOOD. They do ask if you have any food allergies or anything they should know about but I am not picky and will try just about anything. Now to my favorite part of the small trip, the couples massage. So relaxing, like any massage. Full body, 60 minute massage. It was very good and thorough. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend staying here. It is great. I couldn't imagine what a whole weekend or even a week would be like. They offer all kinds of packages for hiking, boat rentals, jet ski rentals, etc. So nice and charming.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant celebrated its 95th birthday in 2017. 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 old growth oaks, pines, and hemlocks. Lake Rabun is one of the most beautiful lakes in the mountains of North Georgia. ... more less
