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!
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.
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.
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!
No water view - since house has been built - which eliminated the former peek-a-boo lake view. Rooms small, yes, but not uncomfortably small like NYC boxes. Breakfast extraordinarily unique and tasty !! Nice bar - premium liquors - GREAT bartender. Uncomfortable stools. Extraordinary decor - cozy - quaint - clean - comfy ! Only question? Is place having money problems? Heard Manager/Owner? yelling on phone.
We loved how quiet & peaceful the hotel is, and the staff was wonderful. We were disappointed in the response we got at dinner, when after having ordered 3 alcoholic beverages, an appetizer, 2 entrees (one of which was the most $$ on menu), and a dessert, they refused to give us complementary coffee, when it was available to inn guests (which we were) just up the steps from the restaurant. Not good PR. Small things count - it felt like our money was more important than our experience.
We had business in Otto, NC and decided to make it a holiday for the evening. Enjoyed delicious dinner in the restaurant & the complimentary breakfast was fab. Rooms were cute and all the common areas very comfortable.
I absolutely enjoyed my stay at the Lake Rabun. It was everything I was hoping for and more. The staff was very friendly and oriented us to the place even though we arrived there pretty late in the evening, food was to die for (yes it is as good as it looks) and the entire facility is clean and very well kept. We definitely will be visiting again!
We have been to the Lake Rabun Hotel many many times at many different times of year. We've been just the 2 of us, and with 4 other people a few times. No matter what we have a wonderful time. The restaurant food is wonderful and all the staff is the most friendly of anywhere we've ever stayed. We recommend it to everyone we know.
thoroughly enjoyed our rustic stay at Lake Rabun Hotel. Rooms are okay when considering the age of the property. Noise level between rooms is high. However, the ambiance and the service more than made up for minor issues. Friendly, attentive staff - ready to meet our every wish/need. A fun winter getaway!
I enjoyed every moment at Lake Rabun hotel. Breakfast, brunch, and dinner were just fantastic. I stayed here for 2 nights and it felt like I vacationed for a month. The services was outstanding and staff seemed happy to attend my needs. I look forward to the next visit. Thank you guys!
We celebrated an anniversary weekend at this lovely, rustic hotel. The hotel had all the elements of a multi-star Inn if you remember the 'rustic' element. Built in 1922 it has the charm of an comfortable fishing camp coupled with an excellent restaurant (no going out in the dark of a rainy December night!). It fits nicely in the environment of Lake Rabun lake houses with lots to do nearby. The rooms are small but the shower was delightful! A lovely place to get away from TV and phones!
Our getaway at the Lake Rabun Hotel was incredibly peaceful. The staff is attentive to guests and knowledgeable about the area. We took a day to shop in Dillard and Clarkesville. We took another day to explore Tallulah Gorge, a must see! The inn has been well taken care of and speaks of a simpler time. We loved the personality the inn seemed to have of its own. We stayed in the Garden Room. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. We ate shamelessly each morning and had dinner at the inn one evening. Wow! Delicious! We will return, hopefully soon!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at LRH. The staff was amazing and the food was outstanding. We soon learned to accept that there was no TV in our room and enjoyed the fire and football on the bigscreen in the parlor. Our dinner and breakfast was amazing, and we met some pretty neat folks! Our only complaint was the noise level. Being an almost 100 year old structure, insulation for sound is obviously not a feature. Early in the morning, we heard cars driving by, footsteps of the staff downstairs preparing breakfast, and even the running faucet in the room next door. That to say, our stay WAS relaxing, cozy and worth it.
This was the most wonderful getaway we have ever been too. All you could ask for and much more. I would go back again n again. The staff made out stay superb. Ken, Jen and Robin made our stay Feel like home! Robin took special attention to our needs¿¿ I would definitely recommend this hotel. Every breakfast were delicious! We weren't there to enjoy their dinners but next for sure. Thanks so much, Den n Rob
We looked for a B&B in the GA Mountains and fell in love with the pictures of Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant. Yes, we like the adventure of that being our only criteria, internet picture. We hit a home run on this trip! This is more like a traditional bed and breakfast than a hotel and restaurant but that was what we were looking for. Here is what we experienced: - The building is old and I would call it historic. Extremely well maintained for it's age and everything worked - The Breakfast is huge and delicious, served quickly and friendly. You may skip lunch after this morning feast. Drink refills were courteous and fast - Frig, microwave, coffee, ice, cookies on each of the two floor convenient to the room - Onsite restaurant is not open all week but plenty of eateries within 20 min drive - Beautiful grounds are nestled in the trees but not deep into the woods, traffic still exists but it was not intrusive - Some of the literature we saw showed Lake Rabun views. The property is not on the lake. The lake is right across the street but foliage and other buildings does restrict the view. - No TVs in the room but a big screen with cable and netflix was down in the game room. - Fireplace sitting room was very nice and cozy. - Clayton GA and other attractions are close and easy drive through the mountains - The resident cats were friendly and fun to cuddle with along with a great book on the porches. - Staff was always available, friendly without wanting to know your life story and very efficient A great time and if you enjoy the Bed and Breakfast style of lodging I don't think you'll be disappointed.
We only spent 1 night, but the room although small was clean and neat. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. We had dinner at the hotel and it was excellent. If you go try the Pimento cheese fritters they were terrific. I recommend the hotel and restaurant and you should try it.
