No, there is not a pool. I wouldn't call the Smith House a resort. It is part of the history of Dahlonega. Located right off the downtown square.

Famous for our all-you-can eat family style meals. Country vegetable and fried chicken is everyone's favorite. Stay in our historic inn and visit our historic town square of Dahlonega where the first Gold Rush was located. The Smith House is locked one block from the square.
