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!

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.

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.
