We had only one night at York House Inn, but it was delightful. We had Mollie's Suite and the Tulipe Room - both were very tastefully decorated but also comfortable (a combination that is sometimes hard to find). Breakfast was on time, hot and delicious. One of our favorite features was the Roc Room - the guest lounge in the...

Our race team all stayed here for the Spring 2017 Wannagofast races at Heaven's Landing. We prefer to all stay in one location and this seemed to fit our needs. It exceeded our expectations and I only wish we got to spend more time with the innkeepers and to enjoy the property even more. Pretty much all of us also...

Thank you for your kind review! We are so glad that your group had a great stay. We wish you were available for breakfast, but you wanted to Wannagofast. Glad we could accommodate your huge race trailers. Thank you for forwarding your spooky experience complete with the music you heard and the "orbs". Look forward to seeing you for Wannagofast...

We had a wonderful stay in October at the Inn! We really enjoyed the history of the place, so the creaky floors and slanting walls were very charming and exactly what we had been hoping for--although it may have been a different story if we were in a first floor room beneath loud walkers. :) The food was excellent; the...

Well thank you for your review! It was a little bit ago, but we have started on some bathroom improvements.

This historic B&B is a neat place to stay. It's the longest, continuously operating inn in Georgia, so the building is old. That means wooden floors, thin walls, creaky doors. There are no phones, tv, or thermostat in the bedrooms. However, there is free wifi! There is cable tv in the basement. There are two charging stations for electric cars....

We first visited the York House in about 1987. There are different Inn Keepers now and the place has been spruced up a good bit! The original home was built in 1840's and began as an inn during1896.

Thank you for your kind review! Yes the maintenance work never stops ...the original portion of the house which is actually a chestnut log cabin is circa 1845, and the "new" wing where you stayed dates to 1907. Look forward to your next visit.
