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.

If you are looking for a rustic bed and breakfast in the mountains, you should seriously consider the Lake Rabun Hotel. My wife and I spent a few days here for our honeymoon and we were glad we did. The rooms are small but include everything you will need. The bed was very comfortable. The room we had included a fireplace, but it was the only one of the standard rooms that did. There is also a cottage next to the main hotel building with larger rooms if you are willing to pay more. Breakfast was outstanding. The innkeepers and other guests were very friendly and pleasant to talk to. We will definitely come back and stay again.
We certainly enjoyed having you! It was such a pleasure getting to know the two of you and we are so appreciative that you chose to spend such a special time here at the Lake Rabun Hotel. We look forward to your next visit!

This facility could not be more charming. Outstanding restaurant and wonderful location!
The Lake Rabun Hotel is one of (if not the last) original mountain lodges in Georgia. The owners worked incredibly hard to maintain the historical integrity of the building while offering modern amenities. Because we are the only hotel on Lake Rabun, we are so glad to be able to have guests come from all over the world to stay near one of the most beautiful lakes in the nation. The restaurant offers the best farm-to-table cuisine in Northeast Georgia and we are so thankful for the remarkable talent that our Executive Chef, Ryan Spruhan, has brought to our guests. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We look forward to seeing you soon!

We come to the area at least once a year. Easy, laid back, and quiet. Food is always good. Love the cozy bedrooms. Yes, they are small but basically only sleep in them. Also, enjoy meeting the other guests, especially if it a big Georgia Game going on.
Thank you so much! We love that our guests take advantage of the cozy parlor in order to watch the Dawgs (sick em!'). We hope to see you again very soon.

The TRUE PLEASURE of The Lake Rabun Hotel is the mind set. U need to understand it is an OLD fishing lodge built in 1922. There is Not a huge lavish suite with plush carpet under your toes. There is a couple of soft leather wing backs setting in front of a big stone fire pace. We found them the ideal place to sip a lil' wine, watch the flames dance, and not have to worry about who was calling or texting my cell phone from the outside world. (let em leave a message.) The comfy bed up the old wood stairs was an ideal place to catch up on a few page of book my tablet was saving for weeks. The highlight of our trip was the WONDERFUL dinner we enjoyed in the lodge's dining room. I am just a red neck foodie from Indiana...But, this place is A true symphony to the taste buds! If u want to find that one place where the rest of it all does not matter..come to The Lil' Place Across from The Lake. ...LAKE RABUN HOTEL!
You have exactly the right idea about the hotel. We love that our guests can get away and truly relax. Our farm-to-table restaurant is one of the best in Georgia and we are very proud of the fact that our Chef has created wonderful masterpieces using local ingredients. Thank you again for your patronage. It was a pleasure meeting you.

We really enjoyed our stay. We knew the room would be small, so that was not a problem. But the inn itself made up for that. There were plenty of places to hang out, both out side and inside. We loved having the coffee available anytime, and we loved the afternoon cookies! The breakfast was tasty and the dinner there on the patio was super romantic. We will be going back!
Wonderful! Yes, the rooms are small but we have plenty of common areas for our guests to spread out as they need to. With so much to do in the area, there is very little time spent in the rooms. We are truly grateful by your patronage and look forward to your return.

Reminds me of summer camp and every hunting or fishing camp I experienced growing up. Ambiance is 'over the top' and the staff was thoroughly accommodating. An indescribable jewel tucked away in the mountains of North Georgia. Next trip I'm bringing two large books and staying a week! Louis P. Batson III Greenville, SC
