First visit and extremely pleased with our stay

4.4 on June 09, 2014

We found this lovely place by searching online. We were enjoying our visit to Dahlonega so much we began looking for a place to stay for the night and were surprised to find this little gem! The B&B is located a few miles away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping and restaurants of Dahlonega. We enjoyed the this quiet get away after a day on the town. The breakfast was wonderful and the innkeeper was so nice. We really enjoyed our stay and will certainly tell our friends and family about it.

Great Bed and Breakfast!

We stayed at the mountain top lodge for a wedding we were guests at. Paul, the Inn keeper, was so pleasant and helpful giving us directions to where the wedding was taking place, and offering insight on great places to grab a bite and visit. The Inn is an older house, yet super clean and in great condition. The breakfast was really delicious throughout our stay, and Paul and his staff were very caring and hospitable; we felt part of the family. If you want a clean, cozy, quiet place to stay at a very reasonable price with great service, this is your place!

Cozy and Comfortable

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!

Great B & B

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.
