My boyfriend and I stayed for one night, but I wish we had stayed longer! We are already planning a second trip and know this is where we'd stay. It's so homey, cozy, and beautiful. Food is excellent, the views are romantic, and the area it's around give so many options for activities. Highly recommended! Loved it!

Found online and when driving to find we were surprised we couldn't see much of it from the road. What a cute rustic b&b along the side of the road(across the road is a nice overlook of the mountains). So glad I chose to book our room there although I wasn't sure of the area or exactly where it was. The whole place is really nice and inside is so comfortable and homey. The owners were so friendly and accomodating. The main dining/living area had such a nice view of the mountains(which made eating breakfast in that spot great). Breakfast was very good and filling. Our room had a screened porch with a hot tub that we enjoyed on luckliy a cool night. Our room was very comfortable and we really enjoyed it's layout with steps down from the bathroom area. We would definitely stay there again. Of course our stay was during a peak time so our rate was a little high I thought, but wish we would have been able to get there earlier in the day to check in and stay later the next day before check out...didn't get our moneys worth in that aspect I don't think.

This was our first B&B experience and it was wonderful! We were celebrating our 10th Anniversary and The Overlook Inn was perfect. The place is beautiful! Our room was very clean and cozy and we enjoyed the hot tub during to cool evenings. The Innkeeper was so friendly and made us feel right at home. The food was AMAZING!! We cannot wait to go back!

Although we were completely 'socked in' weather-wise during our overnight stay, it was a great experience to be in the clouds, and in the storm. Mike and Lynn were great hosts. They provided us with everything we needed - and then some. We highly recommend the Overlook Inn - especially for a romantic getaway - we thoroughly enjoyed the Romance Package!

Beautiful inn with tons of appealing luxuries! The new owners Lynn and Mike are wonderful hosts and are meticulous about details and assuring that their guests have a wonderful experience. Each room is uniquely but beautifully appointed, making it difficult to chose which one to stay in. We chose the Celestial Suite and it was just perfect! In room gas-burning fireplace, very comfortable king-sized bed, a huge jacuzzi and an awesome walk in rain shower with body sprays. It also has a private entrance that provides a bit more privacy. The council room is where breakfast and late afternoon treats are served. The room is grand, rustic with a beautiful stone wood-burning fireplace. The views from this room are spectacular, overlooking the Chattahoochee National Forest. They have a very extensive library, many games and a nice DVD collection. The breakfasts , made from scratch, are delicious and bountiful, you will not leave hungry for sure!! The late afternoon "happy hour" was a nice and extra treat, with everything from freshly brewed coffee( which was so good), to wine and cheeses, to just-baked, right out of the oven, cookies. The grounds are beautiful and have a few trails to hike and explore. There is also a lovely outside sitting area with a fire pit for chilly evenings. I would highly recommend The Overlook Inn for your stay while visiting the Ellijay area.

We selected this B&B online, based on location, and their posted photo gallery. We selected the Conquistador room, and were most pleased with the accommodation and amenities. We selected the dinner option for our first night of a two night stay, and we were most happy that we did. The lemon chicken and smoked trout entries. Owners Mike and Lynn made certain that there was nothing that we were missing, and offered some very nice surprises for breakfast each morning.
James and Brenda, Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed having you stay with us, you were wonderful guests with great stories! As new Innkeepers, we're so glad to have feedback on what we're getting right and doing well. Thanks for taking time to let us know. We look forward to your next visit.

I surprised my girlfriend with the help of Kelly who was so helpful and had such great knowledge of the area. We had an amazing time at the Overlook Inn, the food was good and breakfast in bed was a great treat for both of us. A short hike and amazing views. We had a great time and would recommend and hope to come back very soon.

My husband and I just stayed this past weekend October 26/27. What a great FALL getaway. I loved the view of the mountains with all the wonderful fall colors. Our room was very warm and inviting with a fireplace and comfortable bedding. Saturday morning we had a wonderful breakfast before we headed out to do some hiking on the nature trails in the area. The staff was great and we met some really nice people during the wine and cheese hour. We really enjoyed our stay and are planning to come back to try one of the cabins.

Bananas Foster French Toast
Each Saturday morning, our tradition is to serve a delectable French Toast that is sure to please! Right now, our favorite version is our Bananas Foster - fresh bananas, caramel sauce and cream cheese layered into the mix, it's a fresh-from-the-oven bit of heaven. We've been known to "change up" our flavors from week to week, but this one is currently getting rave reviews!
