Fantastic food to table Inn

Great inn in a quaint town. Dinner is exceptional!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the compliment. Clayton is a wonderful small town. Glad you enjoyed our Saturday "Farm to Table" dining experience.


Excellent getaway in Georgia's wine country!

My adult daughter and I were able to getaway for a couple of days before Thanksgiving, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Gayle and David at the Beechwood Inn. The accommodations, breakfast, and hospitality were all outstanding. We plan to return soon!

Innkeeper Response
We are glad you had a great Gal-Pal Get-Away. We enjoyed talking with you as well and learning about your crafting together. You are both very talented. We look forward to your return trip to Beechwood Inn.


Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

Wonderful spot! I would highly recommend for a weekend getaway, especially for something like an anniversary. Food was incredible and if you want to eat in town, try Fortify.

Innkeeper Response
Yes, Beechwood Inn offers romance packages featuring fresh flowers, chocolate truffles, sparkling wine and more. We will make your special occasion a great memory. Fortify Kitchen and Bar offers delicious dining craftsmanship by Chef Jamie Allred, "Best Chefs America 2013/14."


Total Relaxation

3.2 on November 23, 2014

I do wish coffee would have been made available earlier than 7 a.m. Gift shop was disappointing. Did thoroughly enjoy the wine and special treats before dinner. We learned so much about wine and brought 3 bottles home to enjoy with the family

Innkeeper Response
During check-in we say coffee will be ready by 7:00am, but I am always in the kitchen by 6:00am, and I need coffee, so it is always available earlier. As to the “disappointing gift shop,” we don’t have a gift shop. We have a couple gift cupboards stocked with logo coffee mugs, wine, wine glasses, our great 600 thread count sheets, some local books, etc. What we have chosen to focus on is hospitality, personal service, great food, great wine, and comfortable accommodations. We are glad you enjoyed our local wines and special treats.


luxury Retreat

4.6 on November 03, 2014

The cottage was adorable...the bed super comfy and king-size. The bathroom was huge and the jacuzzi was divine!! View from back deck was of Back Rock mt. and was lovely.

Innkeeper Response
We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our Blueberry Cabin. When we remodeled the cabin we doubled the bathroom’s size to accommodate the jet tub and the extra large tile shower. And you are correct, the private deck offers stunning sunset views of Black Rock Mountain.


Spacious rooms

4.2 on October 31, 2014

David and Gayle we're very gracious hosts. The breakfasts were varied and tasty. I was impressed by the size of our room (Savannah Suite).

Innkeeper Response
We try hard to make every guest welcome and comfortable, so thanks very much for the compliment about our hospitality. Yes, most of our rooms offer plenty of territory to spread out your personal items and yet retain free space to move around. Glad you enjoyed the Savannah Suite.


Fall Weekend and Tuscan Wine Dinner

4.2 on October 22, 2014

We had a great weekend at the Beechwood Inn with hiking at Black Rock Mountain State Park. Going back next weekend for the Tallulah release. Looking for to another fine wine dinner and superb hospitality!

Innkeeper Response
Yes, the water releases in Tallulah Gorge offer great excitement for the boaters and the spectators. Glad you are returning so soon.

Weekend of wine tasting, hiking, and fine dining to celebrate my 3 year breast cancer free anniversary! What a beautiful and relaxing weekend! We arrived on Friday evening, 10 min after wine-thirty had ended but were welcomed by a glass of wine by John. He quickly checked us in, gave us some recommendations for dinner that evening and wineries to visit for Saturday. Our room was lovely with fire place and the small details of the bathroom were noticed. Wine tasting and lunch at the Red Barn was breath-taking! Georgia Wines are impressive! Gourmet meal prepared by David and Gayle Saturday evening was delicious, worth the additional cost of the meal. Enjoyed local foods prepared in the most exquisite fashion, each course paired with delicious wines. Each morning was started with coffee on the porch and a luscious fall view of the mountains. We will be back for sure!

Innkeeper Response
Congratulations on three years cancer free. I just passed 5 years myself. Glad you liked Tiger Mountain Vineyard’s Red Barn Café. Our local wineries offer wonderful vineyard view venues for dining and sipping. We are also pleased you enjoyed our Saturday Farm to Table Dinner at Beechwood inn. We look forward to your next visit.


Great weekend away

4.8 on October 15, 2014

Great weekend away! The location was convenient to hiking, Lake Burton, Lake Rabun, several wineries and downtown Clayton. The rooms are very large and exceptionally clean. The front porch was a great place to hang out for a glass of wine. Breakfast was included and delicious both mornings. Would definitely stay at the Beeachwood Inn again.

Innkeeper Response
I will pass your compliment on to our housekeepers that your room was “exceptionally clean.” We have a rigorous protocol to make sure Beechwood Inn is not just clean – but sanitary. But we are also careful to use environmentally friendly cleaning products. Thanks for including Beechwood Inn on your repeat list and we look forward to your next visit.
