...with this place. From the very moment we entered this little hidden gem situated in this beautiful area around Lake Rabun, we felt instantly "home away from home". What an awesome setting and house! The rooms and the relax areas are simply lovely and very clean, although a bit small for some maybe. Rooms on the second floor are a...

Go to the Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant for a romantic, quiet, unique, lovely evening. First, it is totally gorgeous. Second, the bar offers up a small menu of divine cocktails and wine. Third, the good is delicious - I highly recommend the rainbow trout (simply delicious and I grew up on rainbow trout )! We enjoyed a lovely, quiet,...

This is a wonderful place to just get away and disconnect. They have wonderful staff that will help in any way possible and they provide a delicious breakfast with your stay!

Had not been back to Lake Rabun Hotel since the wonderful restoration. Unfortunately I stayed only one night this trip. There will be more visits! The rooms are very comfortable. The breakfast is fantastic! The restaurant wasn't open during our visit, except for breakfast. There is also a bar.

We stayed 2 nights in the Witham room with the King. The bed is fantastic. The bathroom door is a sliding barn door type which is too narrow to cover the opening completely so we left the room when the other needed to use it! Rather embarrassing and inconvenient. The small bar offers a nice selection of adult libations and...

We hope to serve you again soon!

Jenna was a great help to make sure the April visit with my mother & sister was so enjoyable. Breakfast & dinner were delicious - portions were very generous. The cottage was very comfortable and cozy.

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...

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
