We stayed during the week, so the reputed outstanding weekend dinner was not an option, but otherwise, this rustic and charming B&B was everything we could have expected and even more! Super inn-sitters Jim and Susan made us very welcome and were wonderful to converse with and gave plenty of recommendations on what to do, see and where to eat while there. We availed ourselves of their recommendations and were very pleased.
We rented the entire Garden Cabin and it was awesome. Having the privacy of the whole cabin plus being able to easily walk over to do wine thirty and eat breakfast made for the perfect vacation. They have a Tesla charger so the car had a full charge every morning and the staff was very friendly! We will definitely be back!
David and Gayle Darigh are consummate hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute at Beechwood, and loved the beautiful north Georgia surroundings. Recommendations for local restaurants, sights, and wineries were perfect. This Inn is bathed in friendliness and good humor. The house-made wines were great. Breakfasts wowed. General manager John was efficient, thoughtful, patient, and courteous. We loved our stay in this Inn and will not only return, but heartily recommend it to all our friends. Well done, Darughs!!
The number one highlight was the "Farm-to-table" dinner that's only available on Saturdays. Outstanding meal. All of the breakfasts were also outstanding. We stayed in Savannah room and had a great view of Black Rock Mountain. We will definitely return for another stay.
We spent the day kayaking then proceeded to the Inn anticipating a good dinner and a restful night sleep. WOW were we surprised ! Everything about the Beechwood exceeded our expectations: the staff, the chef driven menu, the food, the wine pairings, the laughter, the room, the bed! ALL GREAT.
The host were amazingly generous. The 6 course farm to table dinner was icing on the cake. Nothing was served that didn't have a touch of genuine passion and love and appreciation for a great culinary experience. Highly recommend Beechwood.
We enjoyed another wonderful weekend at Beechwood Inn. Whenever we travel to the North Georgia Mountains, this is always our first choice. Be sure to reserve a table for the Saturday night dinner. David and Gayle Darugh are artists in the kitchen. With only a few tables in the dining room, you will feel that you are enjoying a private dinner prepared just for you by world-class chefs; because you are!
Our family enjoyed the Beechwood Inn. The setting was beautiful as were the grounds. The wines and meals we beyond our expectations. We have recommended the Inn to several of our friends.
In town for a short stay. The inn was very comfortable and quiet. Very lovely setting. We only had breakfast, but it was absolutely delicious. John and Dave were Great hosts, we didn't meet Gayle but look forward to that on our next visit. This is a great place to unwind and rest.
One year ago I proposed to my wife on valentine's day, and we fell in love with the place, the people, and the food! Now we go there once a year to celebrate our anniversary, and we love it every time like the first time!
This was our second stay at The Beechwood Inn and fist time in Lura's Suite. It's a fantastic room! VERY COMFORTABLE king bed.My wife and I loved the screened porch were we enjoyed our morning coffee. David, Gayle and their staff are wonderful hosts. We'll be back for sure..
The Saturday night farm to table dinner and wine pairing is amazing - highly recommended. Hosts Dave and Gayle are very knowledgable of local providers and wine, and the food was excellent.
Spent three nights at the Beechwood Inn over New Year. The food was exquisite, far exceeded our expectations. The whole experience was amazing, this is a place you have to visit. David and Gayle were fantastic hosts, attention was given to every detail to insure the guests comfort.
This was our second trip to Beechwood Inn, and we love it! This time was for our 30th wedding anniversary....December 7th...practically had the Inn to ourselves. We stayed in the Blueberry Cabin...very private . Perfect !
The Beechwood Inn provided a wonderful place to stay for a day trip to visit family in Atlanta. Clayton is a charming little town in the heart of a farm-to-table food district. We loved our room at the Beechwood and enjoyed the gourmet breakfast and wine tasting. We plan to return soon.
We had a wonderful stay at Beechwood Inn celebrating our anniversary. Dave, Gayle and John are great inn keepers and chefs. They made us feel special and took good care of us for 3 days. Thanks again.
Blueberry Cabin was great - private and quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed the private culinary experience with Dave and John. Wonderful teachers, very patient, and a great menu. Will definitely return to Beechwood Inn. Jonathan and Caroline Sangster
The Beechwood Inn is located in a beautiful setting high in the mountains of North Georgia, only a short drive from Greenville and Atlanta. The owners have taken great care in restoring this beautiful old inn and providing the highest level of guest services, including both evening wine tasting and hearty country/gourmet breakfast. Can't wait to return.
Beechwood Inn is charming. We stayed in the Garden Cabin because the guest rooms were full. It was clean and very comfortable, and nicely decorated without being too cute. David and Linda are eager to please and obviously work hard to keep their guests happy. On Saturday, we wore ourselves out hiking at Tallulah Gorge and Black Rock State Park, which are both very close to Clayton. On Sunday, we drove north to North Carolina and drove the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville, which was beautiful in late October. The best part of staying in a small inn was hanging out on the porch at Wine Thirty and chatting with the other guests. One piece of advice – if you want to eat at one of the two or three better restaurants in Clayton on the weekend, be sure to make a reservation in advance.
David, Gayle and John are extremely kind and personable. The atmosphere was like becoming part of an extended family for the weekend that we were there. The meals were a work of art! Spices and herbs were selected to give balance and depth of flavor to each meal and the pairing with the perfect wine was fabulous. The chefs answered questions regarding preparation (if one was interested) without restraint. The accommodations were warm, inviting and very comfortable. The view from the front porch was extraordinary as it gave a clear view of Black Rock Mountain State Park. The Fall colors were at their peak and the nicely arranged sitting areas invited the guests to enjoy the view. The Inn is centrally located to attractions of the area - hiking, horseback riding, antique stores, vineyards and markets with fresh produce grown locally. etc. The owners went out of their way to meet the needs of their guests. I highly recommend the Beechwood Inn and look forward to another stay!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Beechwood Inn the last weekend of October. We loved the "wine-thirty" with David and Gayle. We also loved the town of Clayton - excellent restaurants there! Breakfast at the inn was wonderful both mornings and we look forward to returning for one of their Saturday night dinners in the near future.
