Lovely views, rooms, good and atmosphere! Our stay was perfect and we can't say enough about Heather! She was wonderful as she showed us around and to our room and served us breakfast for two mornings! The Spa is also divine! Indulging yourself is a must! Lucille's was a beautiful weekend for us!

I booked this B&B as a birthday present for my husband after reading the reviews on B&B.com. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by a very helpful young man, that showed us around before taking us to our room. The room was beautiful and over-sized and I loved the little chocolates that were on the bed. The sheets were heaven and the towels plush and plentiful. I enjoyed talking to Charlie one of the owners at breakfast, she was a delight. This B&B is the perfect romantic getaway Sonja and Clayton

The view and staff :).I took my Mobile m on a summer get away to see relatives she had not seen in a while one of which turns 90 this summer. Lucille's was the highlight of our trip. The views are breathtaking. The staff are kind, welcoming and accommodating :)

We discovered Lucille's as a side trip to take when taking or picking up our children from college in Georgia. We have now returned 4 times to stay there. We have stayed both winter and summer, rain and shine and have always enjoyed our stay. I have a high stress job and a couple of days at Lucille's and I come away totally relaxed. My wife especially is thankful for this. The accommodations are simply wonderful, the staff is a pleasure to be around, and the breakfast and desserts are simply out of this world. The view from the balcony is wonderfully scenic, and peaceful and the entire atmosphere will make you never want to leave.

My husband and I were celebrating our 46th anniversary at Lucille's and had three very relaxing days there. It rained every morning, but we still found plenty to do each day. Later in the day the sun would come out and we could sit outside and enjoy the view. The food and service made us feel very special. We highly recommend spending some time at Lucille's.

My husband and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary here. The Inn feels welcoming, warm and homey. The Inn is conveniently close to the town of Helen. We stayed in room #8 and the view was just perfect. The room was inviting, the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom had tons of space. You are offered complimentary dessert in the evening which was wonderful. The best part of our stay was the breakfast! It's a two course breakfast that was absolutely delicious. Our first course on day one was baked lemon oatmeal with berries and cream (which was my favorite meal of the trip) our second course was a veggie egg soufflé with pork sausage, small salad and cinnamon and sugar muffin. We were so full we didn't need to eat lunch until 2pm. Our second and last breakfast of our stay, first course was creme brûlée French toast with cream and strawberries, second course was asparagus and goat cheese egg soufflé with turkey sausage, fruit and lemon muffin. Once again we were stuffed. Overall we had an exceptional stay and will diffenetly be back. The Inn is very reasonable for what you get, it's definitely the best place to stay in the White County.

My husband and I enjoyed a quick retreat here. The staff was very kind and welcoming, and the grounds were immaculate. All the landscaping was perfect, the deck and common areas were spotless, they even had fresh flowers everywhere. The breakfast served was SO GOOD. Delicious. It was really nice having your breakfast brought to you in courses and they continue to check on you and refill your beverages and everything. It met my expectations regarding the price. You get what you pay for and I definitely enjoyed my stay & we both wish we could have afforded to stay longer. ....oh and the views...gah! Just beautiful.
4.2 on May 04, 2015
Celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary- stayed in room 10- mountain view with fireplace. Owners and staff were fabulous! Used spa- very professional and great value. Went wine tasting and visited local vineyards. Went horseback riding at local property- who knew this little town could offer so much? Plan to go back!

Our son & daughter-in-law gave us a B&B gift certificate for Christmas. We went up for one night to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had actually stayed here a few years ago before Jim & Jerry bought it from the original owners. We enjoyed it then and thought it was a great place, but this time was even better. They have done so much with the landscaping, added a separate cottage, and upgraded the inn. The staff was super nice, the evening desserts were delicious, having soda, coffee and water available was an added nice touch. The breakfast was fabulous and so plentiful. We met the owners and they were so cordial and friendly. Our room (#4) was wonderful......we couldn't have asked for more!! We certainly would stay here again.
5 on March 16, 2015
Me and my husband wanted a quick getaway so I did some research and came across Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa. Not only did it measure up to 5stars it was amazing. The breakfast was so good. The view was breath taking. It was more than I expected and at checkout we scheduled a date to come back. The staff are some of the nicest people you will ever meet they are like family. I am so ready to go back.
5 on March 14, 2015
My daughter and I wanted to stay at Lucille's for quite some time. We finally had the opportunity to do so when my 10 year old son went on a vacation with a friend. Our stay was simply PERFECT!!! The entire staff was so attentive and genuinely cared about our needs during the stay. The food was great! The spa was wonderful! We have visited other inns in Georgia, and Lucille's is the BEST!!!
5 on March 08, 2015
We had a wonderful honeymoon stay at Lucille's. The room was beautiful with great mountain views. The food was excellent. We had a very quiet and relaxing stay, and can't wait to return!! The staff is very friendly and accommodating as well.
5 on January 05, 2015
We loved our stay at Lucille's. The Inn is tucked away in the mountains with a beautiful view and lots of comfortable places to sit and enjoy the mountain panorama.The food is outstanding, the rooms were comfortable and spacious. The staff was wonderful. We plan on returning often!
5 on December 18, 2014
Lucile's was absolutely perfect and everything I hoped it would be!! My husband and I just celebrated our 10 year Anniversary here. The place is so beautiful and relaxing! The breakfast and desserts were Amazing!! All of the staff were so helpful and nice. I can't imagine another B&B being able to top this place!! My husband and I really enjoyed it and plan to stay again in the future!
5 on December 11, 2014
I was very pleased with my stay at Lucille's. I have mild OCD and could not have picked a better place to stay. The staff was wonderful and so was the food. It was a really nice quiet get away.Cant wait to go back!
4.8 on October 29, 2014
My husband and I visited on October 24 through 26. This is a beautiful location with beautiful views of the mountains. The breakfast is great and the staff are very friendly. The only suggestion I have would be a small refrigerator in each room to keep beverages cool and available in the middle of the night. We will definitely be back and hope to visit the spa next time.
5 on August 21, 2014
I have been to 5 star resorts and casinos all over the country and this intimate little gem in the north Georgia mountains out performed all of them. The staff all worked as a family team to insure that my stay was perfect. Hats off to the management for empowering their people to make it happen. It will be a tradition for our anniversary from now on.
5 on August 06, 2014
I absolutely love staying at this exceptional bed and breakfast. I have been there on three separate occasions during various times of the year, and it is always a "heaven on Earth" experience. The rooms are luxurious, spacious and so comfortable with fresh flowers on the tables, clean, and cheery. Views from every room are beyond words and rejuvenate a person with the beauty and majesty of nature in the mountains. The grounds are impeccably kept with wonderful flowers and plants growing everywhere. Food is scrumptious, especially the desserts during the evening hours. All the details for a person's comfort and joy are taken into account, such as a great porch swing, chairs with cushions, and lots of little tables on an expansive deck to enjoy breakfast while looking out upon the most beautiful scenery. There just aren't enough words to fill a page to express how relaxing and enjoyable my stays always are while visiting Lucille's. Jim and Jerry, congratulations on making this my favorite place to stay in the North Georgia mountains! Keep up the good work!
5 on August 05, 2014
The mountain suite was awesome and the breakfast is so filling that you are full till dinner time. Staff was attentive to their guest and their needs. I enjoyed my 4 nights and the area had tons of things to do. The privacy of the suite makes you feel as if you are alone on the mountain and I enjoyed the seclusion while still having access to the inn. I enjoyed breakfast in bed one day and that was spectacular as well. The chocolate covered strawberries in my room upon arrival were yummy. If you are looking for a getaway that allows for total relaxation and still have the options for adventure this is the #1 place to visit. Beauty and luxury all in one. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
4.8 on July 23, 2014
When searching for the "perfect" place to spend our 20th Anniversary, my wife conducted a thorough research for a B&B within a days drive of Nashville. Lucille's was highly recommended and the web site made the place look promising. This fantastic mountain spot is a special place that exceeded our expectations. The room is luxurious, yet intimate. Their food is delicious and plentiful. In addition, the view reveals God's wonderful creation. Most of all, the hospitality is first class. Jim, Jerry and the whole staff made us the center of attention. Lucille's is the "perfect" place to relax, get away and be pampered.
5 on July 17, 2014
My husband and I just got married here last weekend. It was the most amazing experience. The staff are the most wonderful people you could ever meet. The breakfast is delicious and fresh with ingredients from their own garden. We really enjoyed the silence while sitting on the deck overlooking the view. We vowed to come back every year. I highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway.
4.8 on July 02, 2014
This is a four start boutique inn with gourmet breakfasts, excellent personalized service, a thrilling 360 degree view, and lot's of local interest. We took their advice for local waterfall hikes and were not disappointed. You don't have to go to the Carolina mountains!
4.6 on June 24, 2014
The staff was courteous and attentive. We didn't ask for much, but I have a feeling if we had it would have been quickly attended to. The entire inn was spotless, and I've never felt so pampered. The food was good and the desserts in the evening were to die for. One warning if you have any mobility problems, there is not an elevator so stay on the first or second floors not the third. I definitely hope we can go back in the future.
5 on June 09, 2014
My daughter's wedding was in the area and we all stay at Lucille's. This is an outstanding property with excellent views from sunrise to sunset. Jim and Jerry and their entire staff provided exceptional service making a special event even more unique.
4.6 on June 01, 2014
We found the best kept secret in Georgia! Stunning views, fabulous food, spectacular gardens, amazing craftsmanship, and gracious host. You can kick back and watch the clouds, or zip line the tree tops, visit the spa or hike the trails, and when you are hungry, your choices are many but ALWAYS save room for the desserts at Lucille's! Well worth the 6 hour drive!
4.8 on May 05, 2014
Booked a stay and spa appointment at Lucille's for our anniversary and were were not disappointed. Totally amazing views, spotlessly clean, wonderful service and food. We will be booking again. The rooms were well appointed, roomy and very comfortable. The building is beautiful and has breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. Loved this property.
4.8 on April 21, 2014
Views, ambiance, service, and creatively presented breakfast-deserts. "As good as it gets". The only negative was the weather the second nite. However, what a way to spend "A rainy nite in Georgia". Pat & Joel 4/13-16/2014
5 on March 19, 2014
My husband and I were looking for a beautiful place to spend our 35th Anniversary and we sure got it right. This is truly the most beautiful and peaceful place we have ever stayed. Done up in craftsman style and all the amenities you could want. Warm & friendly staff and minutes away from shopping. The breakfasts are amazing and nightly sweets are so good (I think my husband is going to expect me to try to keep this going). This is a place we will come back to!!!!! Pam & George Walker of Newnan GA.
5 on March 14, 2014
We celebrated our 7th anniversary here. From March 9-11, 2014. The accomadations were great. We had room #4 and had a wonderful view of the valley. Staff was very helpful and Jim & Jerry were full of info about the local area. The breakfast were to die for. Mathew does a grand job. Will be back again and would recommend to anyone!!!!!!
5 on March 12, 2014
Eight years ago my wife and I picked Lucille's for our honeymoon and had a wonderful stay with Lucille and George. We've been back 7 times since and even sent our grown children there also. Now we have heard that Jim & Jerry have carried on in the same tradition, so we are going back at the end of the month for the mid-week 3 for 2 special. We are so looking forward to this get-a-way. Myron Slater
Thank you! Lucille and her husband George set the bar very high and we work hard every day to carry on their high standards. We think you will be pleased, and we're looking forward to seeing you very soon!
4.8 on March 09, 2014
Lucille's is our fav B&B. It is so comfortable, clean and has breathtaking views! The Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The staff is wonderful too. We also enjoy massages at their spa. It's a wonderful way to enjoy a weekend away and recharge.
5 on February 17, 2014
Lucille's Mountain Top Inn lives up to all it's hype. A beautiful panoramic view from every direction. Solitude when wanted. Warm hospitality. And always an outstanding breakfast. The best endorsement we can offer is the fact that we plan to go back soon.
5 on January 29, 2014
There is not one negative thing I could offer up about the Inn or it's employees. The owner was incredible, present and offered his help/services whenever we saw him. You can tell that those that work with him enjoy their jobs and are there to help in any way. It's quiet, the spa and the ladies that work there are just as fabulous! This was our first Inn experience and it's going to make it hard to go back to a hotel based on the comfort, quiet and customer service that we received here. I hope you'll stay and that you'll be able to experience the same!
5 on January 12, 2014
We found this adorable place by searching online. Was looking for a weekend getaway place and were surprised to find that in the freezing Jan. temps we were able to even sit outside on the porch swing in the sunshine for a little while. The B&B is located on the top of a mountain so the views in all directions were magnificent. We wished we'd brought our binoculars to check out the houses we could see on distant peaks! The air was so clear and the quiet was something we are not used to coming from the city life we left behind! The main inside areas are elegantly furnished with warm and inviting places to rest and visit. The outside common areas have many sitting areas with tables and chair arrangements, comfy rocking chairs and the awesome porch swing afore mentioned! Our room was also well decorated. The bathroom was very nice with a 2 sided fireplace and the jacuzzi tub had a window looking out to the mountains. The shower was spacious. We enjoyed sitting in our room's sitting area next to the fireplace and even opened our windows as we took in the amazing view. The bed was really comfortable and the breakfast smells floated up to our third floor room enticing us as we started to stir from our dreams! The staff was very helpful and friendly, seeing to our every need. We saw they had a spa but did not enjoy any of its services during this trip.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the wonderful feedback, especially on our staff, since they work hard to exceed our guests’ expectations. We are also glad to hear you found the décor elegant and inviting, since we have been improving our guest rooms and common areas over the past year. And, great suggestion on the binoculars! We’ll start shopping right away for a few pairs for guests to use.
5 on January 08, 2014
Everything about Lucille's was easy. Making the reservation, finding the Inn, checkin, champagne on arrival, breakfast the next day and a last minute request for a late checkout. The staff at Lucille's really do put a top priority on their guests comfort and satisfaction. My only advice to future guests at the Inn is to plan your shopping/browsing day in Sautee instead of Helen. We attempted to visit/shop in Helen and changed our mind and decided Sautee instead. The shop owners in Sautee are very friendly and we found unique items instead of tourist stuff. I look forward to visiting again in the spring.
5 on January 05, 2014
On December 28th and 29th we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa. The service and accommodations were outstanding. There are really no words to describe the level of relaxation and attention to detail that Jim and Jerry have provided to their quest. the food, furnishings and views were 5 star and above, along with the staff and the level of personal service they provide. We highly recommend Lucille's to anyone wishing for a getaway for any reason. The evening desserts all homemade and so good. I really enjoy the evening time with a good book and cup of coffee with the desserts. We'll be sure to tell everyone that we know that this is a place to see and stay at. I can't wait till the day I can visit again. Thanks for everything.
5 on January 02, 2014
My husband and I visited Lucille's for the first time last weekend and had a fabulous time! It was incredibly relaxing and the customer service was amazing It is clear that the owners love what that do as demonstrated with all the special touches throughout the inn. I had a massage with Sherry and it was one of the best I have ever had! She listened attentively to my needs and then provided a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. We will certainly be back!
5 on December 23, 2013
My husband and I first stayed at Lucille's for NYE last year, and we fell in love with this place! We have decided to make it an annual trip, for 2 nights now, and just enjoy the beauty that surrounds the inn, the amazing staff, and the peace and serenity that visiting brings to us!! The food is phenomenal as well!!
5 on December 09, 2013
Lucille's is absolutely wonderful! The room was nice and cozy with a great view. The massage I had at the spa was one of the best I have ever received. The service at both the inn and spa was outstanding. Breakfast was cooked fresh every morning and it was all delicious. Overall this was one of the best vacations that my husband and I have had!
5 on December 04, 2013
Service is wonderful! Rooms are spotless and cozy! Views are breathtaking! Food is excellent! Best Breakfast around! If you want a relaxing and wonderful cabin feel Lucille's is number one in our book! We love it and continue to visit often, each time is always even better than the last! ~Jacob & Chelsea Selman
4.8 on December 01, 2013
My husband and I just needed to get away for a time of relaxation and rest. Jimmy and Jerry were great hosts and the staff works very hard to attend to every detail. I can wait until we go back again soon.The breakfasts were outstanding and the evening desserts and coffee helped ensure that the guests feel at home. The Inn is beautifully decorated and you feel like family when you enter the front door.
5 on November 25, 2013
My husband and I stayed in October for our anniversary and loved everything about the place. Lucilles was a little "upscale" for us without all of the stuffiness. The beds were extremely comfy, the food was great, the rooms were immaculate! We rode up on our Trike and did not have much room for luggage. We used the inn's toiletries and they were awesome! The owner's were friendly, accomodating, and offered us a map of scenic drives that we might want to indulge in. Will definitely be coming back next year!!
5 on November 04, 2013
A friend and I stayed two nights at Lucille's and regretted that we did not plan to stay longer. The views are awesome and the staff is quite accommodating. It was truly an enjoyable experience.
5 on October 25, 2013
My husband and I have stayed at Lucille's many times since it opened. During the past two years, Jim and Jerry have taken the inn a classier direction by improving the landscape, upgrading furniture, training staff, paving and maintaining the driveway, increasing water pressure, adding to the air conditioning, and creating more elegant breakfast menus and presentations. However, the most important aspect of a stay at this inn is that the owners sincerely care about their guests and strive to ensure their experience is top notch.
5 on October 23, 2013
My husband and I stayed at Lucille's for our 7th anniversary. The accommodations were exceptional and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. The savory breakfast and scrumptious dessert each day were out of this world. Best Weekend ever! Definitely will be returning. Saskia E.
4.6 on October 19, 2013
This was our first stay at Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa. I was hoping the Inn would meet my high expectations, as the Inn's website and the high ratings from the reviewers who actually stayed at the Inn was the basis for which I selected Lucille's over the other available lodging in the Helen, GA area. We were not disappointed. The room was first class, as it was immaculate, large, and looked just like the photo on the website. The breakfasts were also first class, out of the ordinary, and extremely delicious! The housekeeping and breakfast service was also outstanding. The owners, Jim and Jerry, were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We utilized the spa and booked the couple's massage. It, too, was outstanding. The only thing that was average was the nightly lodging rate. It was expensive, for being out in the country and not in a major city, but it was worth the cost for a wonderful weekend getaway. We will definitely make a return stay at Lucille's, but only for special occasions or an occasional get-away, as we spent more than $800 for a two-night stay, the spa package, and a few items we purchased at the Inn.
4.6 on September 18, 2013
We spent a long anniversary weekend at Lucille’s and loved the experience. The mountain top setting gives spectacular views of the North Georgia Mountains from their expansive back deck, making for a perfect end of the day with a coffee or glass of wine. All the staff were incredibly friendly and made us welcome from the minute we arrived. Their fresh cooked breakfasts are a great way to start the day and after a day exploring we loved the home made dessert and cookies served at six. The rooms are well furnished with great views and ours had a fireplace connecting to the bathroom. Next time we’ll visit in winter to get the full effect. We’ll definitely be back.
5 on September 10, 2013
My wife and I spent our 45th wedding anniversary here. The inn is beautiful ,the rooms are great, the view from the room spectacular and the food & service ( thanks Jerry ) is all you could ask for. Highest recommendation.
5 on August 19, 2013
The stay at this Inn was a wonderful experience. The rooms are super clean and the food as well as the views are spectacular. This is a well run Inn with caring people.
5 on August 05, 2013
My husband and I went to Lucille's this past weekend to get away one last time before our baby comes in September. I had looked at all these reviews before making the reservation for the Babymoon package. We were both blown away by the service, the rooms, the views and just the quaintness of the inn. The owners are wonderful they make you feel special, like you are the only guest they have. We stayed in room 5 and it was so beautiful. The view from our room was just stunning and all the little extra details made it seem even more special. We took advantage of the spa while we were there. We had a couples massage. The spa was just as beautiful as the inn. They took very good care of us. We would defiantly recommend visiting the inn for any special occasion or just a nice getaway.
5 on July 10, 2013
My husband and I did an elopement package at Lucille's Mountaintop Inn and Spa in June of 2013. The staff was so helpful and welcoming, and we enjoyed one of the best weekends of our lives. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to get married. The rooms are clean, breakfast is amazing, and the views are incredible. This is definitely one of our new favorite destinations!!
5 on July 03, 2013
My husband and I loved this wonderful little romantic Bed and Breakfast. The service was outstanding and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic weekend escape. This is sure to be our favorite weekend getaway. Jarvis and Tammy Williams
5 on July 03, 2013
Expectations were extremely high after the recommendations of friends and family. The expectations were met and exceeded. Both the facility and the staff are fantastic.
4.8 on June 07, 2013
Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa was a perfect adult getaway for our 20th anniversary. My wife enjoyed her massage while I had a wonderful conversation with one of the owners, Jim. He could not have been any more personable and helpful. He provided several suggestions about great places to visit during our stay. The young man at the front desk, Edward, was also very helpful. Our stay could not have been any more peaceful, relaxing...and too short. :-) Breakfast completed a perfect stay the next morning.
5 on June 05, 2013
My sister and my mother have experienced Lucille's in the past and my 87 year old mother really wanted to return for her birthday. It was my first visit. I fell in love with place!
4.6 on May 27, 2013
This was actually my first experience at a Bed and Breakfast, but I have to say that I was completely impressed by everyone there. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The view at the top of the mountain was spectacular. One of my favorite parts was going up into the crows next with my wife and watching the lightning during a storm that passed through. It was exhilarating. The breakfast was awesome. Everything they served was delicious, and they served us more than we could eat. I would recommend Lucille's to anyone.
5 on May 15, 2013
My wife and I were married at Lucille's May 11, 2013. Jim and Jerry really went the extra mile (and then some) to make sure our special day was perfect. They succeeded. Every single detail was spot on. From the wine , to the food, to the cake, to the decor , to the scenery , the staff , the bed , the sheets , the shower, the cheese tray , the view , the surroundings and the Inn itself... nothing could be better. Jim and Jerry were very professional and the price was more than reasonable and we can look back on this day for the rest of our lives and fondly remember how beautiful and perfect it all was. Whether you are getting married, having an event , or just want to get away, you owe it to yourself to visit Lucille's . Thank you Jim , Jerry and crew... oh and Fracie too!
5 on May 09, 2013
We stayed here recently for my friend's wedding and it was amazing. We were they for 2 days and really enjoyed it. It rained the whole time but it was still beautiful. Jerry and Jim are awesome. They are so kind and everything was so well put together. The food was GREAT! Great little getaway for the weekend or a day for couples. Quiet, unbelievable views and great hospitality. Will go again soon.
4.8 on April 25, 2013
Spa - Very relaxing and luxurious environment. After our "spa package" we relaxed for 30 minutes in the lounge area. Staff - Super friendly, helpful, and professional. When we asked for a picture, one of the owner's showed us about 5 different great picture spots. Food - Great taste and great presentation. Room - Fabulous and luxurious, yet comfortable. There was a great binder that explained things to do in the area and how the DVD player worked, etc... They also had a great current DVD collection at no charge. The shower had two shower heads and there was a towel heater. Overall, my best friend and I LOVED it and can't wait to go back with our husband's for a couple's weekend. I have been telling everyone about what a great time it was.
4.8 on April 11, 2013
You can't find a better place to celebrate your anniversary. The food is great, the views are awesome and the hospitality is above and beyond!
5 on April 09, 2013
This is the best B&B that we have ever had the pleasure to visit.The location is perfect with nice mountain and valley views from the rooms. The staff is very good, owners interact with you and will do whatever it takes to please you. The food is excellent. The grounds are well taken care of, flowers and plants everywhere.If you want a relaxing vacation, this is the spot.
5 on March 29, 2013
We adored our short stay at Lucille's!! The B&B is beautiful, friendly and immaculately clean. The owners were super friendly and attentive! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast with a beautiful view of the mountains and an unexpected March snow shower! We can't wait to go back and spend a long weekend here instead of a short one!!
4.2 on March 24, 2013
When I think of an overnight stay in the North GA Mountains, I usually think "old smell log cabin-ish place or just plain old with southern (unhealthy) food. My fiancee and I were pleasantly surprised by the blend of new/modern touches blended with the kinds of traditional design and furnishings of most mountain retreats at Lucille's. They truly understand service and cleanliness and a delicious and creative breakfast. We plan to go back often.

I give Lucille's five out of five stars. What a wonderful place to visit. The staff were so warm and friendly. We felt at home. Plan to return in the fall of next year. We found us a new special place. Thank you.
5 on February 10, 2013
Lucille's is by far our favorite place in the whole country to visit. My elderly mother and I travel regularly and I just booked our fourth trip to Lucille's in a year. Both of us love everything about this B&B. The staff make us feel like family, our room is immaculate, the food is perfect and the view is breathtaking.
5 on January 21, 2013
My husband and I went for a weekend get a way and boy were we thrilled with the Inn. Jim and Jerry treat you like they have known you for a lifetime!! The Inn was immaculate down to the little touches of fresh flowers in the rooms. The size of the Inn was perfect so you can meet and relax with other guests. Breakfast wasAMAZING each morning and the evening dessert was just as good!! And Gracie,oh my, LOVE her!! We will be back to visit again!
5 on January 16, 2013
Myself and my new husband spent the 2nd night of our honey moon here after driving a very long distance from New Orleans., La. where we were married. This B&B's location is secluded, private and very quiet...the perfect romantic getaway. We were pleasantly surprised by the spacious, welcoming home and hospitality, the extremely cozy and comfortable rooms, the delicious breakfast and the incredible view! Wow, this B&B is a gem and well kept secret. We will be returning for a visit soon!
5 on December 11, 2012
Amazing weekend. Jim and Jerry are very accomodating. They go out of their way to ensure that the guest have a relaxing weekend.

This was our fourth trip in 13 months to Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa and it is truly a special place for us. Although it has always been great, Jim and Jerry continue to make improvements that create an even better experience. Jason, Harkey, Dennis and Edward are excellent support staff and contribute a great deal to making this a great place to stay. Everyone does all they can to be helpful, and to make you feel welcome. Each breakfast and evening dessert was excellent. We really enjoy watching Gracie "work the room" during breakfast. Breathtaking views, beautiful facilities and outstanding people make this the only place we want to stay in North Georgia.

My wife and I celebrated our belated 42nd anniversary and had a great time. Everything was first class. We will certainly try and return in the future. The room, breakfasts and evening "goodies" will be remembered. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

We highly recommend it to anyone who want to explore this gorgeous part of the North Georgia mountains.

We stayed at Lucille's Sept. 2012. We were pleasantly surprised by the clean, beautiful decor in the arts and crafts style--much nicer than the typical functionality of a newer hotel. The room was large, comfortably appointed and had a cozy little electric fireplace. The windows opened with cranks, so we cracked them to enjoy the cool mountain air. The king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. Nice little touches included the local ingredients in the handmade, healthy breakfasts, blankets in the living room for looking at the stars from the rocking chairs on the porch, and 24-7 access to fresh coffee, water, and snacks. The service was warm and friendly. This was our first visit to the area, and we discovered that there are many more things to do than simply visit Helen--local wineries, hiking and waterfalls, antiquing, and a delightful gristmill right down the road. We would highly recommend Lucille's and hope to be back to try the spa someday soon.

My husband and I stayed at Lucille's for a weekend getaway. The atmosphere exceeded our expectatioins. From check-in to check- out we were waited on with every need. The breakfast was wonderful and plenty of food with a great view overlooking the mountains. The owners went out of their way to make our stay one of the best ever. We will definetly be choosing Lucille's for our next weekend away, they made our first trip to Helen, GA a memorable trip.

This was the perfect blend between a mountain getaway and an upscale hotel and dining experience. The breakfast was great, the view was incredible, and the accomidations were very nice. I highly reccomed Lucille's. We will go again.

We have been going to B &B's for many years and this one is at the top of our list. We have stayed here numerous times and it just gets better and better. The owners truly provide outstanding service while making you feel welcome. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The luxurious rooms, the new comfortable deck furniture, the unbeatable amazing views, the scrumptious breakfasts and evening desserts all contribute to a relaxing, rejuvinating experience that you will want to repeat as often as possible!

We wanted a nice romantic getaway for Easter weekend, so we went to Helen Ga for the weekend. Staying downtown Helen on Friday night and then staying at Lucille's on Saturday night. My girlfriend took advantage of the Spa services that they offered while I enjoyed the beautiful mountaintop view. We should have stayed at Lucille's for the entire weekend, very freindly staff and owners! Jerry & Jim made us feel very welcome at their Inn and we will be sure to tell all of our friends about this paradise. Biker Friendly! This was a big plus for us because we travel on our Harley to many places and have been shunned, but not here... Thanks again to Jim & Jerry for a great weekend! Great Breakfast too!! Joe & Suzi

Great B&B ! The photos on the website do not do the Inn,rooms,or the view justice--so much better in person. Fantastic breakfast--our favorite was the apple cinnamon french toast. The owners Jim and Jerry made you feel at home. Thanks guys for a fantastic weekend !

We just returned from two relaxing nights at Lucille's Mountain Top Inn & Spa. The hospitality and weather were awesome! Innkeepper Jim went out of his way to make us comfortable. The views from the porch are incredible---especially the stars at night. Highly recommended!!!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lucille's. The owners, Jim and Jerry were so personable and helpful! The rooms were nice, and the views were beautiful. The food was delicious and everyone was great! It was a welcomed relaxing and peaceful weekend. The spa on-property was nice, and a convenient way to book massages (we did). Oh, and the desserts, set out every evening, were delicious. I really don't have anything negative to say about Lucille's. Make a reservation soon!

This is a beautiful inn in a stunning setting. The porch and room views are amazing. The innkeepers are so friendly and helpful. A truly wonderful place!

While I did not have the pleasure of meeting the previous owners, George & Lucille, I found myself enjoying a fresh cup of coffee in the crow’s nest. While the panoramic landscape was awakening around me, I enjoyed reading the logs and comments from previous guest. The elegance, grace and beauty of the property have only been enhanced by the new owners!

What an amazing B&B, first rate accomadations, owners who truly care about you, great meals and outstanding service. To say nothing of the views! Beautiful building decorated in the Mission Style, amazingly decorated rooms; some complete with fireplace, two person spa and large two head showers. There was nothing I didn't like about this Inn. Not too far from the big city, but plenty far enough away to be breathing in the fresh mountain air and seeing the milky way at night!

My husband and I had stayed once before, had a great time, but found out there were new owners and wanted to try again.... What an incredible little piece of heaven in North GA! Greeted with open arms, made to feel perfectly welcome, could not do enough for us! Room was perfect, loved the spa (great jets for sore muscles!), bed quite comfortable, breakfast was amazing! New flat screen TV, dish network, and enough of a movie selection to satisfy anyones tastes. Very well decorated in the Mission Style with a lot of beautiful wood. Good luck to you all, way to go!

This was our first visit and we only stayed one night, but we thoroughly enjoyed the Inn, it's staff and the breakfast. Everyone was so nice. The view was outstanding!!! The Inn felt so homey! It was nice to go at Christmastime and to be able to enjoy the decorations as well. All of the nice "little" touches such as fresh flowers in our room, German Chocolate Cake and Snickerdoodles in the evening made our stay especially nice. We will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend the Inn to everyone!

We bought a LivingSocial deal almost a year ago for Lucille's and I am kicking myself for not coming here sooner. Time was running out before our baby arrives and this was a great babymoon excursion. The whole staff was so warm and hospitable and the inn itself was gorgeous. The food was delicious and the ammenities were excellent, including the spa. The views were simply breathtaking and all just 1.5 hours from Atlanta. We'll be back someday soon!

We spent 1 night at Lucille's during Thanksgiving Week trip to the Sautee area. We found every aspect of the stay outstanding. The setting is quiet and stunningly beautiful. The "mountain top" in the name is not exaggeration... truly on the top and truly with vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys. That night we felt like we could reach out and touch the stars through our window they seemed so close. The breakfast was delicious, too. The attentive service of the staff and Inn Keepers added to the charm of Lucille's. We intend to return soon.

The web sight does not do Lucillie's Mountain Top Inn justice. This succeed our expecations. The staff took care of every detail. We spent a lot of time on the deck just admiring the view. Lucille's is a place you want to spend time at. It is very relaxing, we will go again!

My husband and I booked a one night stay at Lucille's through LivingSocial to celebrate our anniversary. Even though we were only an hour and a half away from home we felt worlds away! The innkeepers and owners were all friendly and extremely helpful, the rooms were clean crisp and modern and thoroughly private. The surrounding views of the mountains were fabulous, especially with the last bit of color left in the leaves. We enjoyed a delicious slice of cake and tea upon our return from dinner (check out the local Nacoochee Grill-minutes away!) and had a great breakfast the following morning with the other two couples who had spent the night at the inn. There is also excellent hiking nearby! We will surely be returning to Lucille's and will recommend it to friends and family!

We stayed at Lucille's Mountaintop Inn & Spa for our 10-year anniversary and had such a wonderful time. The owners, who had recently purchased the B&B in September, were amazing, giving us a grand tour when we arrived. They were so very pleasant, hospitable and accommodating. Our room (#6) was perfect: great view, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, king-sized bed, and a few wonderfully selected books. The room and social areas were decorated stylishly, meticulously detailed and very comfortable. Loved sitting out on the expansive back porch, covered in blankets, sipping on warm apple cider and watching the stars. Breakfast the next morning was scrumptious and we both had several helpings. I can say the only bad thing about our stay was it was for only one night -- my mistake -- our next stay will be much longer. This is definitely our new get-away place.

A beautiful and well maintained B&B and Spa with spectacular views. I found this jewel in the mountains by accident and booked two days. I'm sorry that I hadn't consolidated my travel plans in order to stay longer. This establishment is under new ownership. The new owners and staff are naturally friendly and go out of their way to ensure the comfort and well being of their guests. My wife, who is exceptionally picky, thoroughly enjoyed her stay. Rooms, common areas and grounds are spotless. There also seems to be a natural comraderie amoung guests. This is an establishment where strangers become friends. I am planning a longer stay for my next vacation.

Lucille's was the perfect spot for our daughter's wedding. I don't think she could've chosen a better place. It can be a real challenge providing facilities & services for the wedding itself, let alone having the entire place filled with the wedding party, and the attention given to all of the guests went well beyond what was expected. Early morning coffee on the deck watching the sunrise was outstanding! Their attention to detail, and desire to provide the perfect surroundings was very much recognized and appreciated!

Gorgeous mountain views, southern hospitality and a tasty breakfast made our stay very pleasant. Will definitely go back for the spa treatments! Enjoyed the quaint shops, antiques & pottery nearby in the village. We plan to make this an annual fall visit. Thanks to the new owners & best of luck!

This bed and breakfast is located in wine country. It has a very serene and peaceful setting. There are many mountain towns close by to enjoy shopping and dining and hiking as well. The view is breathtaking. The breakfast was not only interesting but very tasty. Everybody was very pleasant This is a nice getaway. A little on the pricey side. Patunia Snow & Land Man

The grounds are beautiful. Our room was excellent. Breakfast was outstanding. The owners made us feel like old friends. We will be staying here again soon. You will not go wrong by staying at this Bed and Breakfast.

My husband and I spent our 17th anniversary here to have a weekend away. It is an absolutely beautiful place in beautiful country. The new owners could not have been more accomodating! They made us feel like we were family! There are great parks to hike near the inn, and wonderful restaurants. I also treated myself to a one hour massage that was heavenly! Just the scenery alone is worth the trip, but the southern hospitality was the tops! Thank you for a very memorable anniversary!

My husband and I recently celebrated out 39th wedding anniversary at Lucille's and it was perfect! We loved everything - the incredible view, the spacious patio, the secretive koi pond, the cleanliness of the room, the hardwood floors, the beautiful windows, the jacuzzi, the fireplace, the thick robes, the breakfast (thank you Lisa!) the movie selection - you name it! But the best part was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. It just so happened there was a big wedding that weekend also, and we were the only ones NOT there for it. But the new owners, Jim and Jerry, did everything in their power to make sure that we were comfortable and happy in the midst of all the busyness. A BIG thank you to ALL the staff who worked so hard to make sure our stay was the best!

This was my first B&B experience and it was awesome. The place was clean and inviting. The room was nice and relaxing and comfortable. I had no complaints only praise for the B&B and the staff. Everyone was nice and attentive. The view was breathtaking!! I will compare any b&b to this one. It will be hard to compete.

Lucille's Mountain Top Bed & Breakfast is beautiful and charming. The personnel, service, and rooms were great! The outstanding views from the property were breathtaking. We were gonna go hiking, but opted to just stay on the property for a couple hours instead to enjoy the magnificent view of God's creation!

We only stayed one night because we used a Living Social coupon that we purchased. But we booked another weekend to come back and stay the entire weekend because we truly loved it here! The owners are fabulous!! They took amazing care of us. The rooms are wonderful (I love the see through fireplace). The view is amazing and the public area is so welcoming. We had a great time staying up late with friends having dessert and playing cards. Thank you Lucille's for treating us so well. :)
