We journeyed up to Lake Rabun Hotel for a winter weekend just before Christmas and were delighted with the location, service and interesting people joining us there. The fireplace was going strong making for a logical stopping off place for conversations. Outside it was pretty cold and windy but there was no shortage of entertainment inside! The room was hard...

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.

I was booked in to the Legends Room - all rooms are small but totally adequate. The rustic charm of the hotel is the draw - the building is historic, but very comfortable and interesting. Ken was the host, and was an amazing man with historical facts, a gift of friendliness, personality, and a jack of all trades. He was...

Really loved this hotel. The food was spectacular, the ambiance warm and inviting and the staff was truly lovely. The views from the hotel are really something not to be missed. I would be remiss if I did not mention that our room was tiny. There was no room for luggage, a chair or even a closet (they had a...

I'm really not a B&B guy but I thought I'd give this place a look. It was very nice and homey and the service was wonderful with many nice little touches. Room was comfortable and I was quite happy with the bed. Now keep in mind this is not a hotel with TV, etc in the room. However, if you...

My husband I stayed in the Lake Rabun room this past week for 2 nights and had a lovely time! We were originally in the area for camping, but quickly got rained out.

The staff was very friendly, and well informed on local businesses and activities. They always took care of our every need. The atmosphere is very calming, definitely no 'hustle and bustle' in this mountain retreat. The 'Farm to Table' concept of fresh local ingredients made for outstanding breakfasts and dinners that were not 'your typical menu items'. The hotel itself...

Can't complain, rustic and charming atmosphere. I was what my gf were looking for. People have complained about the paper thin walls and small rooms, but the cozy rustic feel made up for that. They put white noise machines in all the rooms and the bathrooms were nice. It's a 90 year old cottage so that's what you're signing up...

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
