About

Lily Creek Lodge, Dahlonega, Georgia, is a European style bed & breakfast located in the heart of North Georgia wine country. Lily Creek’s simple Alpine chalet exterior and natural woodland landscape belie the quiet sophistication of the eclectic interior. Luxurious linens and feather duvets, handcarved and master-crafted European antique furniture, and an art collection from around the world (including Icart, Dali, Picasso, Majolica from Italy, Carrera marble statue, nineteenth century French bisque, Moser crystal, oils and watercolors from exceptional local artists) are just inside the Hobbit-like front door. Enter using the sixteenth century hardware rescued from a ship, sunken for centuries off the coast of Florida, and be greeted by the gracious and friendly owner, Sharon, and staff. The owner and staff are dedicated to providing an uncommon, romantic and relaxing getaway in the Georgia mountains.

4.0 on September 19, 2016

A auite respite from busy life. Staff went the extra steps to ensure our stay in the area was good. The recommended places to see, eat, and activities. Room was clean.


Quite location

3.8 on September 08, 2016

Stayed over Labor Day weekend. Place was quite and serene. Enjoyed our stay. Outside areas needed some tending but did not take away from stay. Breakfast served on time and was delicious.


Charming and Unusual!

4.4 on August 26, 2016

Staying here in the hottest, wettest part of summer made any of the outdoor spaces unusable (oh! the mosquitos!), so we pretty much holed up in our room for most of the weekend. The suite we had included a mini-kitchen and private bath that were probably awesome in the 1960s, but need to be replaced. But the bed was really comfortable, as were the pillows, and the room as a whole was tons of cuteness. The dining/common space downstairs was adorable and inspiring (I want a front door like that!), and the food was lovely. Especially for the price, we really loved our stay here.


Secluded setting and basic amenities

2.8 on August 24, 2016

Lovely hosts helped to balance our experience; nice linens, but "campy" accommodations -- low shower H2O pressure and tired, outdated appointments. Open, exterior staircase to most rooms. Breakfast was tasty, but we were unexpectedly offered one of two seatings that cramped our morning a bit. I won't return, but the property may be well suited for others.


Great for weekend getaway!

Amazing! Me and my husband went there for 1 weekend and we had such a great time! As soon as you arrive at look at the house you get the feeling you're in a fairy tail! The house is filled with furniture and decoration from over the world. Our bed was so comfy! I have a back issues and usually after sleeping at a new place I'm stiff in the morning, but here I felt great both mornings. The lady is very nice and she prepared me special breakfast since I'm vegan. Would love to visit again!

Stayed a Tuesday and Wednesday night on the spur of the moment. The owner was very nice and treated us very well. The lodge is located in a great location. The best compliment I can give is that we will stay there again.


Saturday night stay

4.0 on August 10, 2016

I stayed at the lily creek lodge for a single night with my girlfriend while visiting Dahlonega. It is a really nice B&B for a romantic get away. The pool was great, the room was cozy but comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was really good. If you want a large flat screen TV, an elevator and a pool next to the building stay elsewhere. If you are looking for an intimate getaway in a cute b&b I would recommend it


Birthday weekend

Sharon gave us a warm welcome upon arrival. She even directed us to a different room to make sure our needs were met for our stay. The atmosphere was quiet and quaint; breakfast was delightful!


Quiet and relaxing get away

4.0 on July 21, 2016

We are return patrons and love getting away for some quiet time. Very relaxing and wonderful service. Love all the different places to sit outside and enjoy nature. Breakfast was exceptional.


Loved our stay!

5 on July 17, 2016

What an amazing stay! The lodge is beautiful. The inn keeper Sharon was the nicest and such a hard worker. She was filled with hospitality and joy. We loved it so much that we stayed another night! The breakfast is very tasty and generous size. There is fresh coffee, teas, and juices. The breakfast was probably the best B and B breakfast I have ever had. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. There is an awesome pool with a fun waterfall. Sharon serves homemade cookies and wine when you arrive. The only "negative" note I have is the cell service is horrible. There is free wifi and Sharon offered us to use her land line. In the mountains there is always limited cell service so we were not surprised.
