Great getaway bungalow

3.2 on August 14, 2014

I really enjoyed our stay at the Lily Creek Lodge. While we only visited 1 night, we enjoyed the uniqueness of the lodge. We wanted to swim and enjoy the additional amenities but time just seemed to whiz by! The only recommendation I would offer the Lodge is to repair some of the broken items in the bathroom-namely the shower. The shower drain screws came out and hurt my foot and the curtain rod needed repair. Also, there were a few bugs in the lamp scone of the bathroom light that could have been cleaned out. I would recommend this place. The minor things mentioned above didn't trump the overall nice stay and comfort of the place and the people. If you are heading up to Dahlonega and visiting the winerys, then book this place! It's a great little getaway!

Definitely going back!

4.6 on July 23, 2014

This place is great to just relax and enjoy yourself. The breakfast is amazing and all homemade. It's quant and feels like home. I had an amazing experience.

Don't do it!

Innkeeper Response
Hi. We here at Lily Creek Lodge are always very concerned that our guests get exceptional service and enjoy their stay. I am very, very sorry that the Lily Creek Lodge was not the type of escape you were seeking. I wish you had communicated your displeasure to me while you were here. Perhaps we could have done something to help you. Sincerely, Sharon Bacek

Nice get away

4.0 on July 15, 2014

We spent our anniversary weekend here. We had a nice time--very relaxing! Sharon and Rebecca were very nice and helpful.

July 4th Stay

3.4 on July 09, 2014

Relaxing pool, though it does need some upkeep. The chairs are not meant to lounge on, but serve their purpose. The wine and cheese at check in was great, and breakfast was outstanding!

Charming Hideaway, A Million Miles Away

4.6 on July 08, 2014

We spent an absolutely wonderful long summer weekend at this charming, intensely peaceful place. The rock pool was perhaps our favorite part, tied with the amazing breakfasts served on the halcyon patio. Our room was fine, with the shower perhaps a tad too small for comfort. The warm welcome and hospitality of Sharon and her team will make us return the next time we need an escape from the city!

Cute retreat in Georgia wine country

3.8 on July 07, 2014

This B&B is a cute retreat in Georgia wine country (10-15 minute drive from several vinyards). The themed rooms are a little cheesy, but they are comfy and homey. The breakfast was superb and the service was exceptionally friendly. We would love to bring a larger group back up here to enjoy the large pool and pavilion area.

Nice Hostess

2.6 on July 02, 2014

The hostess/owner was very pleasant and accommodating. Her breakfast was tasty, and the coffee was fresh and ready when we were. The room was old and tired. It really needs a facelift. The pool was down a steep path of wood chips, and was not very warm. The hot tub was cold and not usable due to a resent water change. We were disappointed that it wasn't available. The grounds were 'rustic' and would have been more attractive if the dead wood was pruned from the bushes and groomed a little.

Great little place!

4.2 on July 01, 2014

My husband and I booked a quick getaway to Lily Creek Lodge and were very impressed! We are looking forward to returning soon!

Lily Creek Lodge

4.6 on July 01, 2014

We had a wonderful anniversary weekend spent at the Lily Creek Lodge. Our Host, Sharon, was pleasant and took very good care of us. We got a 3 night package that included a number of amenities that were fantastic. The weather cooperated, so we had breakfast one day in the tree house, and another day in the gazebo. The house and rooms are filled with antiques. Sharon packed us a picnic lunch that included homemade goodies and wine. She has a young girl helping her who made fantastic morning glory muffins. The property is older, and in need of some cosmetic work, but the cleanliness, and atmosphere definitely made up for it. We would go back in a heartbeat. The town of Dahlonega is minutes away and is a great walk around small town. Winerys, waterfalls, mountains, nearby. Thank you Sharon for a treasured memory.
