After having read about Sylvan Falls B&B in my favorite magazine, Blue Ridge Country (a MUST subscription if you love the mountains), I knew we had to plan a trip to Rabun Gap, GA to stay there. We love waterfalls and mountains, and to stay in a cozy, antique-furnished room right next to a waterfall that was tumbling down a small mountain was certainly a unique experience. We slept with the window open that night so we could hear the rushing water, even though it was a cool autumn evening. Mike and Linda, the innkeepers, were friendly and extremely accomodating and helpful and we enjoyed spending time with them. They recommended several good restaurants in the area that we tried and loved over the course of the weekend. The night of our arrival, a heavy rain started around midnight, and by the next morning, the waterfall was a torrent - it was just mesmerizing to look at, as we were served our delicious breakfast on the screened porch less than twenty or so feet away from the water! Mike gave us a tour of the historic gristmill before our departure and I think we purchased about every kind of flour he grinds there, including spelt flour, which we had never heard of at the time. We also purchased grits and cornmeal and Linda gave us several of her recipes to try with their products. Reluctantly, we had to leave, as we were only booked for one night and were meeting relatives at a cabin at nearby Black Rock Mountain State Park for the remainder of the weekend - another great place to stay in the gorgeous GA mountains. We have not yet returned to Sylvan Falls, but do hope to soon, as it is truly a peaceful, beautiful place to stay.
