Wine Enthusiast Magazine places Beechwood Inn in the Top 5 Destinations "for your next wine and food-focused escape," Dec 28, 2011.

Romantic guest rooms and cabin have private baths, porches, fireplaces and luxury amenities. The Beechwood Inn restaurant features a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence selection of vintages from its wine cellar. The restaurant offers Saturday Chef's Table dining by advance reservation featuring fresh regional and Mediterranean-style meals using the best of local, organic and sustainable products from Georgia farms, vineyards and orchards.

Beechwood Inn is charming. We stayed in the Garden Cabin because the guest rooms were full. It was clean and very comfortable, and nicely decorated without being too cute. David and Linda are eager to please and obviously work hard to keep their guests happy. On Saturday, we wore ourselves out hiking at Tallulah Gorge and Black Rock State Park, which are both very close to Clayton. On Sunday, we drove north to North Carolina and drove the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville, which was beautiful in late October. The best part of staying in a small inn was hanging out on the porch at Wine Thirty and chatting with the other guests. One piece of advice – if you want to eat at one of the two or three better restaurants in Clayton on the weekend, be sure to make a reservation in advance.

This was our first experience with the Beechwood Inn. We wanted a nice anniversary getaway without having to go to far from ou home in Atlanta. The inn is located not too far off the main highway in Clayton but still has a nice secluded feel to it. We very much enjoyed the view of Black Rock Mountain from the front porch, especially during the "wine thirty" wine sampling that happens every afternoon. When the onsite manager John found out is was our anniversary, he gave us an extra special outstanding degree of personal service. We can not really speak to the onsite dining, as that only takes place during certain times which did not coincide with our visit. But overall we would enthusiastically recommend the Beechwood Inn for anyone looking for a stay in Clayton.

Delightful owners, friendly staff - outstanding fresh and local ingredients for breakfast and warmed mugs for your coffee!! We stayed for the weekend and signed up for the Chef's Dinner which was outstanding! David is a wine expert and his knowledge and explanation of the wines we enjoyed with our dinner just added to the "pampered" feeling of the evening. The dinner was perfect from the appetizer served with "wine thirty" thru the dessert.

I did not do the Saturday night dinner but the breakfast food and snacks with Wine Thirty were outstanding. Enjoyed talking with Dave and his and John's suggestions for meals were spot on - they even made reservations. The porch is wonderful although on weekdays you can hear traffic from the main highway.

Most relaxing spot for a weekend get away. You leave your stress at the door. The rooms are so large and comfortable you don't feel confined. Staff is warm and friendly and very helpful in finding activities to fit your day. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Very welcoming and great wine!
Yes, we first ply guests with wine shortly after arrival with our daily "wine-thirty." That usually relieves traveling stress. Glad you enjoyed our large comfy rooms, most are double suites. We are always pleased to offer assistance to plan out great activities in our beautiful North Georgia Mountains..

The Beechwood Inn was the perfect get away for my wife and I. The facility was beautifully located overlooking the N Ga Mtns. We were made to feel right at home by the proprietors and their staff. We were treated very well and presented with three amazing breakfast meals. On our next trip we plan to be there for their renowned farm to table Saturday evening meal and get together.
Yes, Beechwood Inn has a spectacular view of Blackrock Mountain, the highest State Park In Georgia. Glad our staff made you fell welcome, and thanks for commenting favorably on our fresh and local foods.

Wish we had longer to enjoy the Inn. We were in and out for one night and mostly spent at a wedding and reception near town. Beautiful place. Would go back if we visit the area again.
We agree, an over-nigh stay is insufficient to experience all of our wonderful hospitality.Come back and visit again.
