My husband and I stayed in October for our anniversary and loved everything about the place. Lucilles was a little "upscale" for us without all of the stuffiness. The beds were extremely comfy, the food was great, the rooms were immaculate! We rode up on our Trike and did not have much room for luggage. We used the inn's toiletries and they were awesome! The owner's were friendly, accomodating, and offered us a map of scenic drives that we might want to indulge in. Will definitely be coming back next year!!

A friend and I stayed two nights at Lucille's and regretted that we did not plan to stay longer. The views are awesome and the staff is quite accommodating. It was truly an enjoyable experience.
5 on October 25, 2013
My husband and I have stayed at Lucille's many times since it opened. During the past two years, Jim and Jerry have taken the inn a classier direction by improving the landscape, upgrading furniture, training staff, paving and maintaining the driveway, increasing water pressure, adding to the air conditioning, and creating more elegant breakfast menus and presentations. However, the most important aspect of a stay at this inn is that the owners sincerely care about their guests and strive to ensure their experience is top notch.

My husband and I stayed at Lucille's for our 7th anniversary. The accommodations were exceptional and the staff went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. The savory breakfast and scrumptious dessert each day were out of this world. Best Weekend ever! Definitely will be returning. Saskia E.

This was our first stay at Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa. I was hoping the Inn would meet my high expectations, as the Inn's website and the high ratings from the reviewers who actually stayed at the Inn was the basis for which I selected Lucille's over the other available lodging in the Helen, GA area. We were not disappointed. The room was first class, as it was immaculate, large, and looked just like the photo on the website. The breakfasts were also first class, out of the ordinary, and extremely delicious! The housekeeping and breakfast service was also outstanding. The owners, Jim and Jerry, were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We utilized the spa and booked the couple's massage. It, too, was outstanding. The only thing that was average was the nightly lodging rate. It was expensive, for being out in the country and not in a major city, but it was worth the cost for a wonderful weekend getaway. We will definitely make a return stay at Lucille's, but only for special occasions or an occasional get-away, as we spent more than $800 for a two-night stay, the spa package, and a few items we purchased at the Inn.

We spent a long anniversary weekend at Lucille’s and loved the experience. The mountain top setting gives spectacular views of the North Georgia Mountains from their expansive back deck, making for a perfect end of the day with a coffee or glass of wine. All the staff were incredibly friendly and made us welcome from the minute we arrived. Their fresh cooked breakfasts are a great way to start the day and after a day exploring we loved the home made dessert and cookies served at six. The rooms are well furnished with great views and ours had a fireplace connecting to the bathroom. Next time we’ll visit in winter to get the full effect. We’ll definitely be back.

My wife and I spent our 45th wedding anniversary here. The inn is beautiful ,the rooms are great, the view from the room spectacular and the food & service ( thanks Jerry ) is all you could ask for. Highest recommendation.
5 on August 19, 2013
The stay at this Inn was a wonderful experience. The rooms are super clean and the food as well as the views are spectacular. This is a well run Inn with caring people.

My husband and I went to Lucille's this past weekend to get away one last time before our baby comes in September. I had looked at all these reviews before making the reservation for the Babymoon package. We were both blown away by the service, the rooms, the views and just the quaintness of the inn. The owners are wonderful they make you feel special, like you are the only guest they have. We stayed in room 5 and it was so beautiful. The view from our room was just stunning and all the little extra details made it seem even more special. We took advantage of the spa while we were there. We had a couples massage. The spa was just as beautiful as the inn. They took very good care of us. We would defiantly recommend visiting the inn for any special occasion or just a nice getaway.

My husband and I did an elopement package at Lucille's Mountaintop Inn and Spa in June of 2013. The staff was so helpful and welcoming, and we enjoyed one of the best weekends of our lives. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to get married. The rooms are clean, breakfast is amazing, and the views are incredible. This is definitely one of our new favorite destinations!!
5 on July 03, 2013
My husband and I loved this wonderful little romantic Bed and Breakfast. The service was outstanding and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic weekend escape. This is sure to be our favorite weekend getaway. Jarvis and Tammy Williams

Expectations were extremely high after the recommendations of friends and family. The expectations were met and exceeded. Both the facility and the staff are fantastic.

Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa was a perfect adult getaway for our 20th anniversary. My wife enjoyed her massage while I had a wonderful conversation with one of the owners, Jim. He could not have been any more personable and helpful. He provided several suggestions about great places to visit during our stay. The young man at the front desk, Edward, was also very helpful. Our stay could not have been any more peaceful, relaxing...and too short. :-) Breakfast completed a perfect stay the next morning.
5 on June 05, 2013
My sister and my mother have experienced Lucille's in the past and my 87 year old mother really wanted to return for her birthday. It was my first visit. I fell in love with place!
4.6 on May 27, 2013
This was actually my first experience at a Bed and Breakfast, but I have to say that I was completely impressed by everyone there. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The view at the top of the mountain was spectacular. One of my favorite parts was going up into the crows next with my wife and watching the lightning during a storm that passed through. It was exhilarating. The breakfast was awesome. Everything they served was delicious, and they served us more than we could eat. I would recommend Lucille's to anyone.
5 on May 15, 2013
My wife and I were married at Lucille's May 11, 2013. Jim and Jerry really went the extra mile (and then some) to make sure our special day was perfect. They succeeded. Every single detail was spot on. From the wine , to the food, to the cake, to the decor , to the scenery , the staff , the bed , the sheets , the shower, the cheese tray , the view , the surroundings and the Inn itself... nothing could be better. Jim and Jerry were very professional and the price was more than reasonable and we can look back on this day for the rest of our lives and fondly remember how beautiful and perfect it all was. Whether you are getting married, having an event , or just want to get away, you owe it to yourself to visit Lucille's . Thank you Jim , Jerry and crew... oh and Fracie too!
5 on May 09, 2013
We stayed here recently for my friend's wedding and it was amazing. We were they for 2 days and really enjoyed it. It rained the whole time but it was still beautiful. Jerry and Jim are awesome. They are so kind and everything was so well put together. The food was GREAT! Great little getaway for the weekend or a day for couples. Quiet, unbelievable views and great hospitality. Will go again soon.
4.8 on April 25, 2013
Spa - Very relaxing and luxurious environment. After our "spa package" we relaxed for 30 minutes in the lounge area. Staff - Super friendly, helpful, and professional. When we asked for a picture, one of the owner's showed us about 5 different great picture spots. Food - Great taste and great presentation. Room - Fabulous and luxurious, yet comfortable. There was a great binder that explained things to do in the area and how the DVD player worked, etc... They also had a great current DVD collection at no charge. The shower had two shower heads and there was a towel heater. Overall, my best friend and I LOVED it and can't wait to go back with our husband's for a couple's weekend. I have been telling everyone about what a great time it was.

You can't find a better place to celebrate your anniversary. The food is great, the views are awesome and the hospitality is above and beyond!
5 on April 09, 2013
This is the best B&B that we have ever had the pleasure to visit.The location is perfect with nice mountain and valley views from the rooms. The staff is very good, owners interact with you and will do whatever it takes to please you. The food is excellent. The grounds are well taken care of, flowers and plants everywhere.If you want a relaxing vacation, this is the spot.
5 on March 29, 2013
We adored our short stay at Lucille's!! The B&B is beautiful, friendly and immaculately clean. The owners were super friendly and attentive! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast with a beautiful view of the mountains and an unexpected March snow shower! We can't wait to go back and spend a long weekend here instead of a short one!!
4.2 on March 24, 2013
When I think of an overnight stay in the North GA Mountains, I usually think "old smell log cabin-ish place or just plain old with southern (unhealthy) food. My fiancee and I were pleasantly surprised by the blend of new/modern touches blended with the kinds of traditional design and furnishings of most mountain retreats at Lucille's. They truly understand service and cleanliness and a delicious and creative breakfast. We plan to go back often.

I give Lucille's five out of five stars. What a wonderful place to visit. The staff were so warm and friendly. We felt at home. Plan to return in the fall of next year. We found us a new special place. Thank you.
5 on February 10, 2013
Lucille's is by far our favorite place in the whole country to visit. My elderly mother and I travel regularly and I just booked our fourth trip to Lucille's in a year. Both of us love everything about this B&B. The staff make us feel like family, our room is immaculate, the food is perfect and the view is breathtaking.
5 on January 21, 2013
My husband and I went for a weekend get a way and boy were we thrilled with the Inn. Jim and Jerry treat you like they have known you for a lifetime!! The Inn was immaculate down to the little touches of fresh flowers in the rooms. The size of the Inn was perfect so you can meet and relax with other guests. Breakfast wasAMAZING each morning and the evening dessert was just as good!! And Gracie,oh my, LOVE her!! We will be back to visit again!
5 on January 16, 2013
Myself and my new husband spent the 2nd night of our honey moon here after driving a very long distance from New Orleans., La. where we were married. This B&B's location is secluded, private and very quiet...the perfect romantic getaway. We were pleasantly surprised by the spacious, welcoming home and hospitality, the extremely cozy and comfortable rooms, the delicious breakfast and the incredible view! Wow, this B&B is a gem and well kept secret. We will be returning for a visit soon!
5 on December 11, 2012
Amazing weekend. Jim and Jerry are very accomodating. They go out of their way to ensure that the guest have a relaxing weekend.
5 on November 01, 2012
This was our fourth trip in 13 months to Lucille's Mountain Top Inn and Spa and it is truly a special place for us. Although it has always been great, Jim and Jerry continue to make improvements that create an even better experience. Jason, Harkey, Dennis and Edward are excellent support staff and contribute a great deal to making this a great place to stay. Everyone does all they can to be helpful, and to make you feel welcome. Each breakfast and evening dessert was excellent. We really enjoy watching Gracie "work the room" during breakfast. Breathtaking views, beautiful facilities and outstanding people make this the only place we want to stay in North Georgia.
5 on October 16, 2012
My wife and I celebrated our belated 42nd anniversary and had a great time. Everything was first class. We will certainly try and return in the future. The room, breakfasts and evening "goodies" will be remembered. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.
5 on September 27, 2012
Lucille's Mountaintop Inn and Spa exceeded out expectations. Clean, comfortable rooms. panoramic view of the mountains, excellent, friendly service and advice about where to go and where to eat, gourmet breakfast, convenient wonderful spa service. We highly recommend it to anyone who want to explore this gorgeous part of the North Georgia mountains.
4.6 on September 27, 2012
We stayed at Lucille's Sept. 2012. We were pleasantly surprised by the clean, beautiful decor in the arts and crafts style--much nicer than the typical functionality of a newer hotel. The room was large, comfortably appointed and had a cozy little electric fireplace. The windows opened with cranks, so we cracked them to enjoy the cool mountain air. The king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. Nice little touches included the local ingredients in the handmade, healthy breakfasts, blankets in the living room for looking at the stars from the rocking chairs on the porch, and 24-7 access to fresh coffee, water, and snacks. The service was warm and friendly. This was our first visit to the area, and we discovered that there are many more things to do than simply visit Helen--local wineries, hiking and waterfalls, antiquing, and a delightful gristmill right down the road. We would highly recommend Lucille's and hope to be back to try the spa someday soon.
5 on September 24, 2012
My husband and I stayed at Lucille's for a weekend getaway. The atmosphere exceeded our expectatioins. From check-in to check- out we were waited on with every need. The breakfast was wonderful and plenty of food with a great view overlooking the mountains. The owners went out of their way to make our stay one of the best ever. We will definetly be choosing Lucille's for our next weekend away, they made our first trip to Helen, GA a memorable trip.
5 on July 07, 2012
This was the perfect blend between a mountain getaway and an upscale hotel and dining experience. The breakfast was great, the view was incredible, and the accomidations were very nice. I highly reccomed Lucille's. We will go again.
5 on June 27, 2012
We have been going to B &B's for many years and this one is at the top of our list. We have stayed here numerous times and it just gets better and better. The owners truly provide outstanding service while making you feel welcome. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The luxurious rooms, the new comfortable deck furniture, the unbeatable amazing views, the scrumptious breakfasts and evening desserts all contribute to a relaxing, rejuvinating experience that you will want to repeat as often as possible!
5 on April 11, 2012
We wanted a nice romantic getaway for Easter weekend, so we went to Helen Ga for the weekend. Staying downtown Helen on Friday night and then staying at Lucille's on Saturday night. My girlfriend took advantage of the Spa services that they offered while I enjoyed the beautiful mountaintop view. We should have stayed at Lucille's for the entire weekend, very freindly staff and owners! Jerry & Jim made us feel very welcome at their Inn and we will be sure to tell all of our friends about this paradise. Biker Friendly! This was a big plus for us because we travel on our Harley to many places and have been shunned, but not here... Thanks again to Jim & Jerry for a great weekend! Great Breakfast too!! Joe & Suzi
5 on April 10, 2012
Our group (Jean L.) from Atlanta enjoyed our weekend retreat to Lucille's so much!! Jerry & Jim were incredible hosts and made sure every need was taken care of!! My husband and I were very impressed with the Inn and the entire area!!
5 on April 02, 2012
Great B&B ! The photos on the website do not do the Inn,rooms,or the view justice--so much better in person. Fantastic breakfast--our favorite was the apple cinnamon french toast. The owners Jim and Jerry made you feel at home. Thanks guys for a fantastic weekend !
5 on March 28, 2012
We just returned from two relaxing nights at Lucille's Mountain Top Inn & Spa. The hospitality and weather were awesome! Innkeepper Jim went out of his way to make us comfortable. The views from the porch are incredible---especially the stars at night. Highly recommended!!!
4.8 on February 20, 2012
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Lucille's. The owners, Jim and Jerry were so personable and helpful! The rooms were nice, and the views were beautiful. The food was delicious and everyone was great! It was a welcomed relaxing and peaceful weekend. The spa on-property was nice, and a convenient way to book massages (we did). Oh, and the desserts, set out every evening, were delicious. I really don't have anything negative to say about Lucille's. Make a reservation soon!
5 on February 20, 2012
This is a beautiful inn in a stunning setting. The porch and room views are amazing. The innkeepers are so friendly and helpful. A truly wonderful place!
5 on February 05, 2012
While I did not have the pleasure of meeting the previous owners, George & Lucille, I found myself enjoying a fresh cup of coffee in the crow’s nest. While the panoramic landscape was awakening around me, I enjoyed reading the logs and comments from previous guest. The elegance, grace and beauty of the property have only been enhanced by the new owners!
5 on January 31, 2012
What an amazing B&B, first rate accomadations, owners who truly care about you, great meals and outstanding service. To say nothing of the views! Beautiful building decorated in the Mission Style, amazingly decorated rooms; some complete with fireplace, two person spa and large two head showers. There was nothing I didn't like about this Inn. Not too far from the big city, but plenty far enough away to be breathing in the fresh mountain air and seeing the milky way at night!
4.0 on January 29, 2012
My husband and I had stayed once before, had a great time, but found out there were new owners and wanted to try again.... What an incredible little piece of heaven in North GA! Greeted with open arms, made to feel perfectly welcome, could not do enough for us! Room was perfect, loved the spa (great jets for sore muscles!), bed quite comfortable, breakfast was amazing! New flat screen TV, dish network, and enough of a movie selection to satisfy anyones tastes. Very well decorated in the Mission Style with a lot of beautiful wood. Good luck to you all, way to go!
4.6 on December 18, 2011
This was our first visit and we only stayed one night, but we thoroughly enjoyed the Inn, it's staff and the breakfast. Everyone was so nice. The view was outstanding!!! The Inn felt so homey! It was nice to go at Christmastime and to be able to enjoy the decorations as well. All of the nice "little" touches such as fresh flowers in our room, German Chocolate Cake and Snickerdoodles in the evening made our stay especially nice. We will definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend the Inn to everyone!
4.6 on December 04, 2011
This Inn is located in a beautiful setting with 360 degree mesmerizing mountain views. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed with luxurious touches. The staff was wonderful and friendly! I can't wait to go back!
5 on November 30, 2011
We bought a LivingSocial deal almost a year ago for Lucille's and I am kicking myself for not coming here sooner. Time was running out before our baby arrives and this was a great babymoon excursion. The whole staff was so warm and hospitable and the inn itself was gorgeous. The food was delicious and the ammenities were excellent, including the spa. The views were simply breathtaking and all just 1.5 hours from Atlanta. We'll be back someday soon!
5 on November 29, 2011
We spent 1 night at Lucille's during Thanksgiving Week trip to the Sautee area. We found every aspect of the stay outstanding. The setting is quiet and stunningly beautiful. The "mountain top" in the name is not exaggeration... truly on the top and truly with vistas of the surrounding mountains and valleys. That night we felt like we could reach out and touch the stars through our window they seemed so close. The breakfast was delicious, too. The attentive service of the staff and Inn Keepers added to the charm of Lucille's. We intend to return soon.
4.0 on November 22, 2011
The web sight does not do Lucillie's Mountain Top Inn justice. This succeed our expecations. The staff took care of every detail. We spent a lot of time on the deck just admiring the view. Lucille's is a place you want to spend time at. It is very relaxing, we will go again!
4.8 on November 17, 2011

My husband and I booked a one night stay at Lucille's through LivingSocial to celebrate our anniversary. Even though we were only an hour and a half away from home we felt worlds away! The innkeepers and owners were all friendly and extremely helpful, the rooms were clean crisp and modern and thoroughly private. The surrounding views of the mountains were fabulous, especially with the last bit of color left in the leaves. We enjoyed a delicious slice of cake and tea upon our return from dinner (check out the local Nacoochee Grill-minutes away!) and had a great breakfast the following morning with the other two couples who had spent the night at the inn. There is also excellent hiking nearby! We will surely be returning to Lucille's and will recommend it to friends and family!

We stayed at Lucille's Mountaintop Inn & Spa for our 10-year anniversary and had such a wonderful time. The owners, who had recently purchased the B&B in September, were amazing, giving us a grand tour when we arrived. They were so very pleasant, hospitable and accommodating. Our room (#6) was perfect: great view, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, king-sized bed, and a few wonderfully selected books. The room and social areas were decorated stylishly, meticulously detailed and very comfortable. Loved sitting out on the expansive back porch, covered in blankets, sipping on warm apple cider and watching the stars. Breakfast the next morning was scrumptious and we both had several helpings. I can say the only bad thing about our stay was it was for only one night -- my mistake -- our next stay will be much longer. This is definitely our new get-away place.
5 on November 06, 2011
A beautiful and well maintained B&B and Spa with spectacular views. I found this jewel in the mountains by accident and booked two days. I'm sorry that I hadn't consolidated my travel plans in order to stay longer. This establishment is under new ownership. The new owners and staff are naturally friendly and go out of their way to ensure the comfort and well being of their guests. My wife, who is exceptionally picky, thoroughly enjoyed her stay. Rooms, common areas and grounds are spotless. There also seems to be a natural comraderie amoung guests. This is an establishment where strangers become friends. I am planning a longer stay for my next vacation.
4.6 on October 25, 2011
Lucille's was the perfect spot for our daughter's wedding. I don't think she could've chosen a better place. It can be a real challenge providing facilities & services for the wedding itself, let alone having the entire place filled with the wedding party, and the attention given to all of the guests went well beyond what was expected. Early morning coffee on the deck watching the sunrise was outstanding! Their attention to detail, and desire to provide the perfect surroundings was very much recognized and appreciated!
4.4 on October 13, 2011
Gorgeous mountain views, southern hospitality and a tasty breakfast made our stay very pleasant. Will definitely go back for the spa treatments! Enjoyed the quaint shops, antiques & pottery nearby in the village. We plan to make this an annual fall visit. Thanks to the new owners & best of luck!
3.8 on October 04, 2011
This bed and breakfast is located in wine country. It has a very serene and peaceful setting. There are many mountain towns close by to enjoy shopping and dining and hiking as well. The view is breathtaking. The breakfast was not only interesting but very tasty. Everybody was very pleasant This is a nice getaway. A little on the pricey side. Patunia Snow & Land Man

The grounds are beautiful. Our room was excellent. Breakfast was outstanding. The owners made us feel like old friends. We will be staying here again soon. You will not go wrong by staying at this Bed and Breakfast.
4.6 on September 26, 2011
My husband and I spent our 17th anniversary here to have a weekend away. It is an absolutely beautiful place in beautiful country. The new owners could not have been more accomodating! They made us feel like we were family! There are great parks to hike near the inn, and wonderful restaurants. I also treated myself to a one hour massage that was heavenly! Just the scenery alone is worth the trip, but the southern hospitality was the tops! Thank you for a very memorable anniversary!
5 on September 19, 2011
My husband and I recently celebrated out 39th wedding anniversary at Lucille's and it was perfect! We loved everything - the incredible view, the spacious patio, the secretive koi pond, the cleanliness of the room, the hardwood floors, the beautiful windows, the jacuzzi, the fireplace, the thick robes, the breakfast (thank you Lisa!) the movie selection - you name it! But the best part was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. It just so happened there was a big wedding that weekend also, and we were the only ones NOT there for it. But the new owners, Jim and Jerry, did everything in their power to make sure that we were comfortable and happy in the midst of all the busyness. A BIG thank you to ALL the staff who worked so hard to make sure our stay was the best!
4.8 on September 19, 2011
This was my first B&B experience and it was awesome. The place was clean and inviting. The room was nice and relaxing and comfortable. I had no complaints only praise for the B&B and the staff. Everyone was nice and attentive. The view was breathtaking!! I will compare any b&b to this one. It will be hard to compete.
4.2 on September 17, 2011
Lucille's Mountain Top Bed & Breakfast is beautiful and charming. The personnel, service, and rooms were great! The outstanding views from the property were breathtaking. We were gonna go hiking, but opted to just stay on the property for a couple hours instead to enjoy the magnificent view of God's creation!
5 on September 12, 2011
We only stayed one night because we used a Living Social coupon that we purchased. But we booked another weekend to come back and stay the entire weekend because we truly loved it here! The owners are fabulous!! They took amazing care of us. The rooms are wonderful (I love the see through fireplace). The view is amazing and the public area is so welcoming. We had a great time staying up late with friends having dessert and playing cards. Thank you Lucille's for treating us so well. :)

We arrived July 31 and was warmly received, assigned to the honeymoon suite, and told a piece of chocolate cake was waiting for us. We felt welcomed. The host's recommendation for dining in nearby Helen turned out great and then we came back in time to get pictures of the sun setting over the mountains. Breakfast on the deck was a perfect setting for us with gormet treats and more than we could eat. We enjoyed conversation with Lucille, the kind of distinctive inn keepers we look for. We rated this property five stars as it is only 10 years old, everything was in good working condition, and the location is one of its kind.
3.8 on August 02, 2011
Astounding views, wonderful breakfast, very relaxing & low-key. Multiple state/national parks and a pottery museum w/ folk art galleries that you can spend several hours viewing that is dedicated to GA potters & artists just down the road.

We enjoyed our stay very much. It is a beautiful place with a great view of the mountains. The innkeepers were very nice and friendly. The breakfasts were great and we would go back again.

I purchased a deal from Living Social to stay one night at Lucille's (to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary with my husband). We were very happy with everything about the Inn, especially the great value we received for our "investment". The surroundings were spectacular, the food wonderful and our hosts were especially friendly and accommodating. A couple got married on the deck the afternoon we arrived. I watched the ceremony from our window on the 2nd floor. It was a beautiful site, and brought back memories of our wedding years ago. We highly recommend Lucille's Mountain Top Inn as a TOP of the LINE B&B!
4.6 on July 11, 2011
The only problem was getting there. CALL (do not e-mail or MapQuest, or, according to their website, trust GPS) for turn-by-turn directions once you're in Sautee, or Helen, or thereabouts. But once clearing that frustration, everything was great and we hope to return for a long weekend (especially now that we know the secrets of actually getting there; but the firemen were nice who straightened us out!).
4.8 on July 09, 2011
The best part about Lucille's is how relaxing it is. The views from the porch are outstanding. The innkeepers seemed genuinely interested in making our stay excellent. Food was great.

The room was beautifully furnished, clean, and the bed was very, very comfortable. The view from the deck is lovely and the hosts were very accommodating. Looking forward to another visit!
4.2 on June 22, 2011
My husband and I found a deal on LivingSocial for this place and after some research decided to stay another night, we loved this B&B! We stayed during a hot part of the summer and it was great because of the trees and nice mountain breeze. The amenities, such as the fluffy robes, double shower, and nearby spa make this a romantic couple's getaway. Also, the breakfast served had to be some of the best recipes I've experienced. Overall, this will be a place we will revisit, next time in the fall!
5 on June 22, 2011
Great place, great service. Beautiful inn and views. Worth getting up at 6:30 for the sunrise

Very clean. Not a typical B&B, a little more of a modern feel. Excellent breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our visit. We were not overly impressed by the rooms nor the quality of the furnishings. Not bad, but not outstanding. The innkeepers were friendly (Bob & Barb) and helpful and the food was really good. Over all it seemed a bit expensive for the quality.

The bathroom floor was dirty in a couple of places. Also there was a coating of dust on the window sill in the bathroom. Learned that the Inn is 'For Sale'. The 'temporary' Innkeepers were very nice, accommodating, & helpful. Breakfast was good but not elaborate. We have stayed at many 'upscale' B&B Inns and based on past experiences I would say that this Inn is not a good value.

My wife and I stayed for one Saturday evening and it was simply delightful. This place is charming and you should plan on staying more than one night.

The view is spectacular on the back porch, so that's where we spent a lot of our time. Breakfasts were informal and very friendly with coffee provided even for early risers. We stayed in room 2 which was directly off the porch. That feature was nice for evening sunsets, but it did open to the main common area as well. I would certainly go again, but maybe try a more private-feeling room.

We had a lovely weekend at Lucille's. The view from the back deck was terrific and the weather happened to be perfect. Lucille's has a very nice breakfast with some of the best coffee I've ever had. If you ask they'll make dinner for you (we discovered that a little late, darn it all because it smelled fabulous). Lucille's offered us movies, popcorn and dessert too, that was a nice touch to end the evening.

The views from the porch and the rooms in this beautiful inn are just wonderful! It's worth the trip just for that. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful (as was the fourlegged greeter Petunia), although breakfast, which was supposed to be between 8:30-9:45 was not ready until well after 9. Normally, that would not bother me very much while on vacation, but we had to leave rather early that morning, so we had to eat very quickly. The food was good, however.

Nice quaint place. Expected the service to be more friendly and accommodating. They did accomodate when we asked but not really friendly about it. Breakfast was decent but expected more. Overall though a nice place tucked away.

Very beautiful place with friendly staff. Would definitely go there again. Loved that spa services were available next door.

Impressed with the "little details" at this inn...snacks, drinks, dessert in the evening, great movie selection, towel warmer in bathroom, even a great makeup mirror with black washcloth! Room and bath both were good size. We'll definitely be back!

Lucille's Mountain Top Inn is a very peaceful, quiet retreat. You could not ask for a more serene and beautiful location. Our room was very clean with a beautiful view of the Georgia mountains. I highly recommend!

My favorite part of our short stay was breakfast out on the deck. It was a beautiful day, there was really good food, and the view was wonderful. It was such a peaceful way to start the day.

My fiance and I went to Lucille's for my birthday and had a superb time. We watched the sunset over the Georgia mountains, ordered some tasty look pizza to be delivered inn, savored delicious homemade mocha cake in our romantic suite courtesy of the B & B. Our jacuzzi and fireplace in the room on the 3rd floor were so cozy! Lots of cable channels, although we opted for a movie. Then we had great breakfast in the morning and followed it up with a hike around the complex. Highly Recommend!

You will never want to stay in a hotel after staying here. My husband and I stayed here one night to "get away" even though it was only a little over an hour away. We arrived in time to enjoy some of the best peanut butter cookies ever. We stayed in room #10 with an awesome view, double-sided gas fireplace, large Jacuzzi (very comfortable for 2) and separate shower for 2. FYI, the gas fireplace will really heat the room up. We wanted to have dinner in our room, but didn't make the request in time. FYI, if you want to enjoy dinner in your room, make sure you request at least 24hrs prior to arrival day. Debbie recommended the Nacoochee Grill, which is right outside of Helen. Wonderful food; we enjoyed the shrimp & grits and pork chops stuffed with crabmeat. Dessert was waiting for us when we came back from dinner and, of course, it was amazing. We didn't have time to do much with only staying one night, but there is a lot to do in the area and there is even a spa right next door to the B&B. Bring your appetite for breakfast. Debbie is an excellent cook and you will not be disappointed. My husband and I highly recommend Lucille's B&B. Thank you to Debbie and James for a wonderful stay.

Lucille's is a great place to stay and relax. The staff is very gracious and attentive. We will definitely stay here again when we head to Helen. Massage was wonderful, also.

My wife and I could not have been any more pleased with our stay at Lucille's. The room and house was impeccable. The homade cookies, cake and pie were the best snacks I've ever had at an Inn. Breakfast was fresh, hot and delicious. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much Deb and Lucille for the beautiful retreat with tasty treats and brilliant breakfasts! And a special thanks to the support you offered during my time to quit smoking. You both gave me the courage to live smoke free!! God bless. Thomas M Zimmerman

My wife and I had a great stay at Lucille's. The room has a great view and the fireplace set the mood. Breakfast was great as well. The only complaint was there were lady bugs in the room.

We love Lucille's! This was our second visit! The room is always clean and fresh! The food is superb! and there is lots to do in the area!

We were pleased with our stay at Lucille's Inn. If you're looking for solitude and all around scenery; this is the place. Plus: friendly and very helpful staff; excellent accomodations (clean, jacuzzi, fireplace, robes); quiet, beautiful surroundings, good food. Minus: no elevator, we were on the 3rd floor; expect a travel of 5-10 miles to a restuarant or attactions. We will return.

My fiance and I stayed here for a night after buying a LivingSocial deal, and we really loved it. Unfortunately, it was raining the day we came so the view of the mountains was obscured a little by the fog, but it was still beautiful and our room was so nice. Dessert and breakfast were both delicious as well, and we enjoyed sitting by the fire in the lobby to read in the evening. Very cozy :) We'd definitely recommend Lucille's and plan on coming back in the future!

Absolutely awesome. The guest service was remarkable, the views were breathtaking, the rooms very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, tranquil get-away

We had a wonderful stay at Lucille's. They really know how to treat their guests. All of the extras, dessert, snacks, coffee and tea, blankets for sitting out under the stars, made Lucille's an above and beyond experience.

My husband and I went to Lucille's for a belated Valentine's Day weekend. When we arrived we were greeted immediately by Karen, who remembered speaking with me when I booked our reservation. She was friendly, helpful and made us feel at home. We went directly next door to the Mandala spa for massages. The spa was nice and the service was pretty good. It was great having the spa so close and convenient. The room was bigger and nicer than the pictures on the website and it was perfectly clean. We were very comfortable. Breakfast Sunday morning was wonderful! We loved the dill in the eggs and the oatmeal was delicious! Lucille's was easy to find and get to - very close to Helen which was fun. Overall we had a very relaxing weekend, and we will definitely go back.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lucille's Mountain Top Inn. This was our first time staying at the Inn. The view was breathtaking! The staff was friendly, the room was nice and spacious and the decor made us feel cozy and at home. The special valentine decorations in the dining room made it extra special for us to celebrate the Valentine's Day!

My wife and I really enjoyed our 1 night stay over Valentine's Day weekend. Time seemed to stand still on the Mountain. Very peaceful and serene. We are looking forward to returning and spending more time at the Inn.

Lucille's is everything you want a modern BB to be and nothing that you don't. Clean and current rooms, breathtaking views and personal service that's second to none. Look no further!

We had a wonderful time and were pleasantly surprised to find the facility was even better than it appears online! The entire place is gorgeous and well kept. Debbit, one of the innkeepers, is a real gem! Great cook and gave us wonderful tips on activities and places to go/sites to see.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night winter getaway to Lucille's Mountain Top Inn. Debbie and the staff made us feel right at home, the room was excellent, and the views magnificent. We will be back. CWM

Stayed three nights at Lucille's and I loved it! The breakfasts are spectacular, I did not need to eat again until dinner! The staff is so friendly and they go out of their way to make your stay special, but they are not at all intrusive. The view from my room (#5) was incredible. You will not be disappointed! To top off your stay, walk next door to the Spa and get a massage....heavenly!!

I booked a one night stay with Lucille's last weekend (January 22nd) in one of their best rooms. The room was gorgeous! Beautiful mountain views, very clean and cozy, the jacuzzi bathtub was amazing. The staff was very professional and friendly. It seems that the community works together for business. We were reffered to a lovely little place for dinner and our server asked us all about Lucille and Debbie and if they had sent us. The breakfast was phenominal too! A wonderful place to stay-even just for a night. We will definitely return.

Oh my, how amazing this experience has been. I believe this was the most relaxing two nights Steve & I have spent away from home. The setting is magnificent, the mission architecture & ambiance is warm & comforting, the staff: Debbie & James are now friends, the bedding, robes & amenities are high quality without being pretentious, the food while half the B&B title could carry the place on that merit alone! Debbie, Chef & Ex.Dir. coddles her guests with homemade goodies & wise words. We arrived for a one night stay & booked a second night within the first hour!!!!

This facility is beautiful architecture and the views are 2nd to none. The innkeepers were very accommodating and went out of the way to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts and evening desserts were so good I felt we were being spoiled. We'll be back sometime.

We first visited Lucille's in July. We enjoyed it so much that we went back in Nov. The room we stayed in you could take a bubble bath in the 6ft jacuzzi tub and look at see through fireplace. It was big enough for 2! The views from your windows or deck are breathtaking and the staff is amazing. They pay a lot of attention to small detail. It has the warmth of a home not a hotel. Wonderful!!
