If you are a foodie and recognize exceptional cuisine you must come to Beechwood. Five courses meticulously prepared with wonderful flavors from start to finish, paired with just the right wines!

My husband and I returned to our favorite home away from home , as well as our favorite restaurant anywhere, to begin the new year. We enjoyed a delightful pizza dinner on Friday night that spoiled us for anyone else's pizza ever. Saturday night's tenderloin was the best we have ever eaten. Every course was lovingly prepared and perfectly paired... More

Six of us dined here on a recent Saturday evening and I'm sorry to say it fell a little short of expectations. The food was a mixed bag -- a couple of courses were very good and a couple were just average. The service was erratic and the wine service in particular was not managed very well. We had extended...

Food was terrific. Thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday night dinner. The food was fresh, well prepared and paired beautifully with the wines. We also enjoyed the education by our Innkeeper/chef on the five course meal most of which was picked and prepared that day. Special mention on the view from the front porch which we enjoyed during the wine 30 social... More

Let me take a moment to dispute what one reviewer said about this inn. From the greeting upon arrival, to the superb dinner, and the warm hospitality throughout, this has been a superb experience.

Great location. Save yourself the $170 dinner price for two and eat at one of the truly fine dining restaurants in town. The food may be farm fresh, but honestly not that great. They now have great restaurants within a mile of inn that are wonderful. The owner is nice, but one presentation in beginning about food and wine was... More

We are glad you enjoyed your experience at Beechwood but disappointed you did not enjoy our dinner. We are lucky Clayton offers some wonderful other dining opportunities. We are in the hospitality business so we don’t like to get bad reviews. To avoid them we check on each guest’s experience. Each morning at breakfast, each evening at wine thirty, after... More

This was a surprise trip from my husband for our anniversary. We're not really into wine so that didn't thrill us, but if you are, this is the place to go. Our room was really nice, but the floors squeaked, the bathroom pipes gurgled every time we ran water in the sink, and we could hear all our neighbors fairly... More

When building our mountain home in Heavens Landing, we often stayed here for long weekends.

Dining Every Saturday Night: We are authentically Farm to Table, growing much of our produce with caring attention. We are as local as local gets and of the season to the moment.

Each menu is pre-selected by our chefs based on what is seasonal and available that day. Most of our seasonal foods are organic and natural, many from sustainable North Georgia farms, orchards, dairies and vineyards. Reservations are needed. The Inn features Northeast Georgia's only Wine Spectator Award of Excellence wine list.
