We stayed in room 11 on Saturday and found it lovely! Extremely clean, comfortable bed, great staff, great location. The location was excellent and we walked to all the shops downtown within 2 minutes. Would recommend it and stay here again!

We rented out the Smith House for our son's wedding in April. The rooms vary from cosy to colossal - all are decorated with fine furniture and decorations. One of the areas has a common lobby for guests to relax in. If you are there for lunch or dinner, you MUST have the fried chicken in the restaurant - it...

Nice historic hotel especially for the price. Room was a bit cramped but this was a former house converted into hotel rooms with private baths. Walls are a bit thin when people are rocking outside your room jabbering away but the tv takes care of that. The guy that checked me in was very nice and attentive. There is a...

My fiance and I visited delohnega for the day and were suggested the smith house by a local teacher at their high school. I honestly didn't even look to see what kind of restaurant it was, but I was disappointed. It is very overpriced, all you can eat it or not. $44 for two people after tip and the food...

We took a northern guest to the Smith House after hearing about their famous family-style southern cooking. What a disappointment! The food was okay but way short of Mary Mac's or the OK Cafe in Atlanta. Service and setting were adequate but without charm - even for family style. It was definitely not worth the trip from Atlanta.

This was a very nice "hotel", though I don't really think hotel is the best description. It has more of a feel of a bed and breakfast inn. The Smith House is just that, a house. There are wood floors and staircases, siting areas both inside and out, and beautiful, home furnishings. The rooms are smaller than a normal hotel...

The Smith House has a perfect location for visiting our two children who attend college at UNG. It is within walking distance to shops and restaurants as well as the campus. The room was very comfortable and clean. The renovated bathroom was very nice. We will choose to stay at the Smith House inn the future!

We planned a two night get away to include meeting friends for dinner and taking in the Literary festival. The location next to downtown Dahlonega was just right for us. We parked our vehicle and walked to restaurants and attractions which were very close. The Smith House staff were friendly, inviting and helpful. Our room was comfortable with a full...

Went for a late lunch at the Smith House restaurant. It's family style and there are lots of items to choose from and they were all delicious. We didn't need any more but they even offered to refill the serving dishes. Great service, delicious food and good value.

The Smith House provided a very pleasant weekend for my wife and I. The room was very nice, very comfortable. The location is ideal; just a half block from the Square so its just a short walk to restaurants, etc. Speaking of restaurants, the food at the Smith House is great; good southern cooking and plenty of it! Also, the...
