My wife and I were wrapping up our trip to an Eco-lodge in the Chattahoochee National Forest when she suggested a small in in Lakemont that had received some pretty good past reviews. From the moment you approach this unique property the surprises begin. The courtyard garden at the entrance was a stunning little retreat. Once inside, I instantly felt...

Lake Rabun is an enchanting place. The hotel and restaurant are full of history and charm. We had a very pleasant weekend. The service is great, the food is great, the atmosphere is great. I read some reviews complaining about thin walls and sound. The hotel is 94 years old and you can hear through the walls, but it was...

The atmosphere at The Lake Rabun Restaurant is so peaceful and lovely. The wood and stonework both outside and in are amazing. Our food was quite delicious. My husband and uncle had the breakfast platter which consisted of pancakes, bacon, potatoes, grits, eggs and a sausage gravy biscuit. They both agreed that it was delicious! I had Southern Crab Oscar...

We had driven by property previously and wanted to visit one day. Decided on a very last minute getaway and the hotel was available. Staff (especially Jenna & Josh) were so gracious and helpful. There are tons of things to do throughout the immediate area regardless of the season but we loved just being able to relax and enjoy the...

Although I've lived in Rabun County most of my life, this was a place I had never visited. I've heard so many good things about it; but, it's off the beaten path. So, for Valentines Day my husband and I made reservations and went. I have been missing a great restaurant! It is so warm, inviting, and quaint. The food...

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
