The Lake Rabun hotel is a real gem if you're looking for an affordable bed and breakfast experience in north Georgia. The staff is very attentive and the property is beautiful! It's driving distance from Tallulah Gorge where we hiked the next day.
Be aware that the rooms are very small! We were in the Moonshine Room. There's no TV in the rooms and the bathrooms are kind of cramped. This is not a boutique hotel experience. It's truly an inn or lodge. So don't expect a garden tub and spa inspired bathroom. You can hear everything in the hallway outside the rooms which leads me to believe that people in the hallway can hear everything inside the rooms.
We ate dinner at the hotel and were impressed with the seasonal and local menu. We enjoyed the salmon and the shrimp and grits for dinner. It was very good, but the chef was a little heavy handed with the salt. Breakfast was much better! We loved the hearty breakfast that consisted of eggs, grits, bacon, fruit and toast. If you do choose to eat at the restaurant, try to get a table on the porch. It's a great atmosphere.
We live in Atlanta and love to get out of the city and stay in boutique hotels and inns. We're glad we were able to enjoy this hotel.
- 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
