We spent the weekend at the hotel in the Appalachia Room. It is on the third floor next to a closet and very private. The beds are very comfortable and the room was decorated to reflect the historic woodsy nature of the inn. Breakfast is amazing and very filling. Tasty with a beautiful presentation. In the afternoons and evenings we... More

We had dinner on a Saturday evening in the outside dining area where they had heaters so the temperature was perfect. For our appetizers we had pimiento fritters and trout & both were delicious. Then we shared the crab cakes and duck entrée. The crab cakes had a lot of crab meat unlike some places that use too much "filler."... More

My wife and I have traveled to north Georgia with our friends for many years. We have a couple of favorite places to stay but we like to try new places too. Lake Rabun Hotel was new for us this year.

First, I am glad that you enjoyed our unique restaurant and thank you for applauding our food and service. Second, I apologize, again, for our "special friends" that came to visit in the cottage. We have consulted with a contractor to address how they entered the building, and look forward to another chance to host you and your guests. I... More

We went for Sunday brunch and sat outside. The servers were very good and prompt. The atmosphere is nice, and the mimosas were delicious. The menu is somewhat limited, but adequate. The table next to us asked for something off of the regular menu and the server said they didn't do that on Sundays. We ordered the pimento cheese fritters... More

I am happy that you enjoyed our service, atmosphere and mimosas, but I regret that we conveyed that we were "too busy" to accommodate your order. We were blessed to be very busy on the day you dined with us, and it is true that we ran out of our most popular appetizer, the Pimento Cheese Fritters. Unfortunately, it takes... More

See other review for hotel. The farm fresh meals were incredible. The chef specials were well thought out and beautifully plated. We had Creme Brûlée for dessert each night and I must admit it ranks up there with my top five restaurants that have Creme Brûlée on their menus.

A beautiful and charming inn this is. The welcome staff includes Chloe the cat, that lives on the 2nd floor porch. The only negative if any, was the cat hair in the porch chairs. I didn't want to sit there with my wine, dressed for dinner. But the food is fabulous, and the whole atmosphere makes us want to go... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. We will certainly make sure to keep a better eye out for the front porch so that our guests are more comfortable. The third floor rooms were not available during your stay, as we are just finishing up construction. Luckily, we were able to get very creative with those rooms and have enjoyed... More

I have stayed at the hotel with my wife but recently visited to take my daughter to dinner. Hard to do justice to how good it was.
