We looked for a B&B in the GA Mountains and fell in love with the pictures of Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant. Yes, we like the adventure of that being our only criteria, internet picture. We hit a home run on this trip! This is more like a traditional bed and breakfast than a hotel and restaurant but that was...

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. This hotel was the perfect respite from the rain! From my first phone call to check availability to my arrival and ultimately my departure were all wonderful...

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...

First glance, The Lake Rabun Hotel is charming both in person and on site. However, charming in appearance is only a small part of what a guest should encounter. First, the staff was far from gracious. In fact, we felt like we were putting them out when we checked in. Secondly, the rooms are soooooo small and the walls are...

We spent an anniversary week-end in this charming mountain hotel. It was a good get away - no televisions or phones in the rooms. The breakfasts were incredible - lots of food and prepared deliciously. This is not a hotel if you are looking for pampering as accommodations are rather rustic, but it was just what we wanted - peace...

Thank you so much for your kind words! The Lake Rabun Hotel is certainly the place to come for some much needed R&R. You are absolutely right in that we are "rustic" with no televisions or telephones in any of our guest rooms. We want our guests to experience the majesty of the Northeast Georgia Mountains. As such, we offer...

Even trying to overcome the small, dank rooms, the intense lack of customer service made me feel like I was intruding and unwelcomed. So I left, to never try to stay there again.

Beautiful spot for an intimate wedding! Our friends got married here, the food was fantastic, service staff awesome and a very unique, cute spot. There are so many beautiful places for pictures around the cottage and near the lake. Must have the crab cakes!

Weddings are what we do best! From small elopements of two people, to grand affairs of 120 the Lake Rabun Hotel is a wonderful spot in which to exchange vows. We make the wedding guests feel at home. Everyone is able to relax, have a good time, and celebrate such amazing festivities. Thank you for your feedback!

We rented the Innkeepers Cottage and it was great. Comfortable, spacious and full of neat things to look at. All the appliances are brand new. The beds are wonderful. And our favorite was sitting on the front porch. Not to mention the daily deliveries of fresh cookies.

If you're looking for the W then I don't recommend the Lake Rabun Hotel.

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
