Great B&B away from the busy downtown life of Dahlonega! The owner/Innkeeper Paul, was fantastic! We loved listening to his stories! Our room was the Gold Rush room. It was separate from the main house with its own deck which was nice for morning coffee. Breakfast was unique and delicious! We will definitely stay here again!! Ann & Milton

Relaxing Visit

I had not been to Dahlonega before, and I found the Mountain Top Lodge on the web. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The food was great, everyone was really friendly, and even though I visited during the fall, when the weather was cold, I could soak in the beautiful scenery from one of the many windows in the lodge.

First visit and extremely pleased with our stay

We found this lovely place by searching online. We were enjoying our visit to Dahlonega so much we began looking for a place to stay for the night and were surprised to find this little gem! The B&B is located a few miles away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping and restaurants of Dahlonega. We enjoyed the this quiet get away after a day on the town. The breakfast was wonderful and the innkeeper was so nice. We really enjoyed our stay and will certainly tell our friends and family about it.

Great Bed and Breakfast!

We stayed at the mountain top lodge for a wedding we were guests at. Paul, the Inn keeper, was so pleasant and helpful giving us directions to where the wedding was taking place, and offering insight on great places to grab a bite and visit. The Inn is an older house, yet super clean and in great condition. The breakfast was really delicious throughout our stay, and Paul and his staff were very caring and hospitable; we felt part of the family. If you want a clean, cozy, quiet place to stay at a very reasonable price with great service, this is your place!

Cozy and Comfortable

This B&B is absolutely charming. It is perfect for a quiet getaway. The rooms are comfortable, and you truly feel you are a million miles away from your everyday life. It's like being at home, only better. There is a kitchen available for guests to use, as well as a TV loft and a library area. Paul, the innkeeper, makes a delicious breakfast each morning. He does the little things to make sure his guests are happy. The wood and exposed beam architecture perfectly match the wooded mountain setting. I would definitely stay here again!

Great B & B

Due to parents' health problems, my wife and I had limited opportunities for vacations together this summer. We'd been through Dahlonega previously, and thought we'd like to see more. We liked Mountaintop Lodge's website, and when we saw a midweek overnight stay was available, we booked it. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mountaintop, and would enthusiastically book there again in the future. Innkeeper Paul Carmody made us feel at home and treated us like family. We were the only guests in the lodge on the night we stayed, so we got Paul's undivided attention. The room was clean and well-furnished. We enjoyed access to the deck and the view it provided. When Paul learned I was a relatively early riser, he had coffee ready at 0700, and we had a nice chat as he prepared breakfast. My wife joined us and we both enjoyed Paul's breakfast. He pointed us to restaurant and winery opportunities. It was a really good experience.

Rainy and Snowy getaway

Being our first stay at a B&B, we did not know what to expect. Paul, the innkeeper, spared nothing to accommodate us. The rooms were beautiful and exceeded any expectations we had set. We stayed in room 9 (in the cabin) which had a great view of the mountains. We toured the rooms in the main house and would highly recommend each for the there own individual touch. Breakfast was very good with an egg and cheese dish, bacon, biscuits and assorted fresh fruit. Paul recommended some of the local restaurants and attractions and all were as pleasing as he had said. I would highly recommend and will be staying again.

A great place to get away.

Dahlonega Trip

We stayed at the Mountain Top Lodge B&B for two nights in Dahlonega, GA. Paul the innkeeper was an excellent host. As soon as we arrived, he was waiting to greet us. He made us felt at home, very friendly, attentive and just easy to talk to. The location of the lodge was easy access to downtown about 5 minutes drive. Our room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. This room has a sunroom. This is the room to stay. It was a fantastic room. Each morning Paul and his wife made homemade delicious breakfast, fresh fruits and his French toast is the best. The second morning we had wonderful quiche. That was awesome. If you plan to get away for a week-end, stay at the Mountain Top Lodge B&B in Dahlonega, GA. You’ll enjoy your stay.
