The staff were friendly and helpful; the rooms had a charming mountain ambiance to them, and the overall experience was great. The hotel's a short distance from Lake Rabun (which is gorgeous) and Tallulah Falls (which is worth the trip).

We hope to see you again! Lake Rabun is certainly one of the most scenic and gorgeous lakes in the United States (if we do say so ourselves), and Tallulah Gorge is a must see if you are visiting the area. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We value all of our guests and...

We went over to attend a wedding this past weekend not far from the hotel. My daughter had suggested we stay here. Oh me - I didn't want to leave. We were only able to stay for one night but these folks have got a good thing going here. If you want to get away from our crazy world, give...

Our overall experience at Lake Rabun Hotel was very pleasant. We rented the full keeper's cottage. There was three guests: our daughter, my wife and myself We were greeted by Ken who politely showed the place around. The cottage is very well equipped, confortable and 'homy'. It respects the original style, including everything necessary for confort We had dinner at...

Having just moved from New York, we found this thru a drive with a sports car club we are members of. The drive from Atlanta is well worth it, both scenic and fun.

We just stayed one night and it happened to be the night the restaurant was closed (we heard it is super from other guests). We even missed breakfast the next day as we had to head out early.

Had the pleasure of staying at this gem over the Thanksgiving Holiday. A wonderful experience. Outstanding service by all members of staff and the food in the restaurant was superb. Zack who was our waiter each evening took excellent care of us. Will definitely recommend to anyone going to the area.

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
