We stayed 2 nights for our daughter's wedding weekend. The room had character, the bathroom was upgraded and beautiful! Opening up our door, we were right on the front porch with rocking chairs- a true 'southern charm'. We would stay here again.

My daughter and I went to Dahlonega for a night and stayed at The Smith House. The front desk staff were very friendly, the rooms were exceptionally clean. We didn't eat in the restaurant because it wasn't open for breakfast. That was our only disappointment. The location was perfect. I would definitely stay there again.

Stay on 7-30-14. After planning a visit with friends that live in the area, we decided to stay nearby instead of spending 3 hours for more driving. We had eaten at The Smith House a while back (yum) but had never stayed overnight there. I reserved a room for the night by calling and speaking with Michael. It was an...

Stayed in one of the Smith House's two bedroom villas on the square. Room was in need of some upgrading, but the bedding and pillows were amazing, providing one of the most restful sleeping experiences I've enjoyed outside of my home. Great porch with rockers off the living room overlooking the square made the evening enjoyable. Just a good atmosphere...

We stayed at The Smith House for a family wedding and were blown away. The lovely hotel is nestled in a beautiful mountain community with lots to do. Our room was comfortable, as well as roomy and beautiful. We were walking distance to boutique shopping and lovely outdoor venues. If we are ever in the area again, The Smith House...

I stayed at The Smith House the evening of my rehearsal dinner, the night before my wedding day. I would definitely stay again. The room was very clean and pleasant - nice furniture, decor and linens. The feel is very quaint and homey, totally unlike the sterile feel that is common in chain hotels. It is located in the heart...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate my birthday. I had read about the inn in a book called Historic Hotels in America, which I recommend to travelers looking for classic high-quality lodging across the U.S. Our room was in the carriage house, which was lovely. The bed was so comfortable, and the toiletries first-rate. The...

Me and my husband celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary at the Smith House, we stayed overnight in room 14. It was WONDERFUL. The bathtub, the shower, the bed. I was not expecting it to be as nice. I was thinking old historic. I admit I was wrong. They even have Blvgari soaps and lotions. We will go back every year.

My wife carried me to Dahlonega for my birthday to relax. It was perfect. The room we stayed in had a wonderful bed and great bathroom and shower. The staff was very pleasant. I would recommend for couples wanting a bit of relaxation by browsing shops and enjoying sitting on the porch. We really hated going back home to the...

We stayed in one of the suites and it was very roomy and helpful to have a full kitchen, washer and dryer. The decor is a bit dated (not like charming dated, more like 80's dated) and the walls were scuffed up, but that had no impact on the quality of our stay. Also, the stairs to the suite are...
