Certificate of Excellence
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.

This hotel withdrew almost 200.00 from my debit card without my permission and the General Manager has been no help whatsoever in getting it resolved. I am astonished by this behavior. ......... please use caution when handing over your card to this establishment.....!!!

Peaceful, rustic and restful. The staff manager and staff were welcoming and gracious. The food and service at the restaurant was excellent! We hope to have the opportunity to visit again. A wonderful place to disconnect and unwind!More

I want to be scrupulously fair. Pros: the restaurant, while pricey was completely outstanding. The wait staff was super helpful (up to and including our waiter coming back to tell us that the "special" of heirloom peas were not very good). It was about $100...More

I am glad that you enjoyed our historic lodge, restaurant service and food as well as appreciated your servers' proactive approach to the peas (which were a little under-cooked at the beginning of service). Our policy is to address an issue before it happens, and...More
