I needed to stay overnight in Toccoa once a week for several months, and did not care to live in a motel; I wanted to feel as if I were coming home at the end of the day. Indeed, the innkeepers made me feel as welcomed as homecoming. I tried different rooms, all delightful, but found my favorite (the one with a mysterious bookcase), and that was "mine.". During the afternoon I napped, had a cup of tea, returned to work, and at the end of the day, I climbed the carved oak staircase to "my" room, lit a fire in the bedroom's small fireplace, relaxed in comfort in the beautifully appointed room. Next morning, according to my schedule our meal served by the innkeepers...Breakfast! of fresh blueberry pancakes, omelets, crisp bacon, fresh fruit medley, and juice, delicious coffee. The next week's breakfast: pecan waffles, soufflé, warm fruit compote, sausage, juices, good coffee. Gentle company at breakfast...we all seemed to know where to find a gem like this B&B. I plan to give gift certificates for Christmas

We stayed in the Elizabeth room. It was a very large room with a pull out sofa. Plenty of room for the three of us. The breakfast was awesome and there was plenty of it! For example: Strawberry pancakes, eggs with ham, bacon and sausage, fresh fruit and freshly made orange juice! Toccoa is a quaint southern town, we enjoyed walking the downtown and shopping the Antique store. The falls are a must see. Just a short walk to see the beauty and power of Nature. We also had great dining experiences at the Copper Pot in Clarkesville!

This is a fabulous B & B, even if you don't like older homes or appreciate their construction and details you have to fall in love with this one. Oak everywhere - gorgeous. My room, "Tiffany", was spacious, beautiful, comfortable and complete with a claw foot tub. Breakfast was outstanding - served on China. The tour of the home and the history given, as well as the history of Toccoa, was a great touch. I will definitely stay again.
