Memorable experiences have been daily fare at the Lake Rabun Hotel since 1922. This unique mountain lodge captures spectacular views of Lake Rabun, where the sun plays on the water, dazzling and inviting you. There is nowhere else like it. This beautiful mountain architecture and flavor have inspired past and present owners, Gwen North and Anabel Panayotti to preserve the magic that so many have come to love. Tastefully appointed rooms with private baths, downy queen-sized beds and old fashioned charm will wrap you in comfort. Out on our decks, under a canopy of pines and hemlocks, breathe deeply our sweet mountain air with a glass of wine or beer while you wait for specially prepared entrees and light fare from our award winning restaurant.

We stayed in the innkeepers lodge It was really nice and so peaceful. The on site restaurant was spectacular. Lastly, the service was by far the best we have had.

Very well converted hunting lodge, with the original character maintained. Excellent elevated position, with the feeling of being in the trees! The staff are great, as was the In-house restaurant. A real treat and such a different hotel experience!

Absolutely great location, real lovely away from it all location, very tastefully renovated. The on site restaurant was a real bonus! The scenery in the immediate area was absolutely stunning!
We are located in what I believe is one of the most gorgeous places not only nationally but internationally as well. We are absolutely thrilled that everyone gets to enjoy such a majestic place. Thank you again for the review!

This a beautiful and magical place to get away. The food was spectacular. The rooms were a bit small and not on the lake but the service, food and location getaway was perfect. Great job to all the staff and innkeeper.
We pride ourselves on being able to serve a "farm-to-table" menu to both our hotel guests and the local community. We are fortunate to live in the farm to table capital of Georgia, where we have an abundance of farms to source our menu items from. We are a historic building, so yes, the rooms are small, but we feel that we make up for that with the charming atmosphere. Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts. We look forward to your return!

The hotel is quaint and rustic, a lovely and quiet escape from the bustle and heat of the Atlanta metro area. We stayed only one night and did not have the opportunity to have dinner in the dining room, but the complimentary breakfast was pretty amazing so I have no doubt that the dinner fare would be great as well. The staff were friendly and welcoming.
Thank you so much for your kind words! The next time you stay with us you will certainly have to join us on a night that we are open for dinner service (in season: Wednesday-Saturday and Sunday brunch; off season: Thursday-Saturday for dinner and Sunday brunch). We look forward to your return!

Thank you for your kind review! Speaking for the entire staff, we try to go above and beyond for our guests. It is wonderful to be able to provide everyone a unique experience. We hope to see you again!

My husband and I stayed at the Lake Rabun Hotel in the heat of June--but it was cool and delightful in the mountains. The hotel is like the mountain home you wish you had inherited---full of dark wood, rustic antique furnishings, and knotty pine, with porches and decks for you to sit out under the trees. We were greeted nicely, and shown to our room, and introduced to the free coffee, tea, snacks, and homemade cookies available on the second floor. Breakfast was full and delicious: fruit with yogurt, blueberry tea bread, bacon, omelette, grits, and orange juice. We skipped lunch that day. We also dined in the restaurant the night before, and we felt the price was very reasonable for a special night out, with memorably good food. We're still talking about it our meals there I have only one caveat--the walls of the rooms are wood, so rather thin--it is easy to hear the neighbors. Some guests may need more sound proofing. The bed was comfortable, and I slept very well. I want to go back!
We hope to see you again very soon! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. The owner and staff work tirelessly to make sure that the hotel is a place to come and get away from it all. No detail is left out. Because we are celebrating the building's 94th birthday this year, the walls do tend to be thin. In keeping with the historical integrity of the building, there wasn't much that could be done about that. We do our very best to inform the rest of our guests about being neighborly and thoughtful. Thank you again for your patronage!
