Rabun Manor Stay March 2016

4.6 on March 12, 2016

We had a wonderful weekend at the Rabun Manor in Dillard, GA. The rooms and house are tastefully decorated, and we absolutely loved the gourmet breakfast in the dining area each morning. The mountain views from the dining area are beautiful. The hostess went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. I would highly recommend this venue not only for a weekend getaway but as a corporate retreat, wedding reception or small group party.

Loved staying at Rabun Manor

Traveling for business in the GA Mts, not much to choose from in regards to major hotel chains that are worthy of staying in near Clayton or Dillard Ga. Nancy, the owner on property was wonderful to work with and helped me with directions, room amenities and just so welcoming. I was assigned to the Spice Room, Spacious, clean and lovely. I do love this house, it is large, beautiful and filled with lovely antiques. Although I keep bringing up antiques, you should know that it is not stuffy or uncomfortable. I enjoyed Nancy, she was wonderful, friendly and a joy to get to know. I feel blessed that I chose Rabun Manor and hope that my travels will bring me here again.

Front porch swing and Autumn glory!

Holy woah. What a beautiful gem nestled away in the mountains. I recently stayed after photographing a wedding in the Scaly Mountain, NC area. I enjoyed my quiet little stay and was impressed with how attentive the owner and staff were during my stay. I missed breakfast on the first morning, but was able to grab Sunday brunch and was simply blown away by how yummy the food was. If you're looking for a place to call home for a few days while exploring the surrounding areas, please check it out! -Abby

Comfortable stay - great option to staying in Highlands

5 on August 31, 2015

We stayed here because I hate to pay the $300-500/night when visiting Highlands, NC in season. Dillard/Rabun Gap is about 10-15min drive from Highlands, although know that the drive is windy going up/down the mountain. Friendly staff, large, extremely comfortable rooms and beds. Updated bathrooms. Super views from the upper porch. Excellent breakfast served on a large indoor/outdoor porch area. They make their own yogurt, which is very good! The areas on the main floor include the dining area, living room and library, which all can be used by the guests. The front porch wraps around the main house - nice for a glass of wine and relaxing with a great view. The outlaying buildings have rooms to book as well, but they didn't appear to be as nice as the ones in the main house. All in all, a great value and a very beautifully decorated place to stay.

Worth returning!

The view from the from porch, the landscaping, the attention to detail in decorating and customer service make this an exceptional destination.

Great getaway !

We truly enjoyed the ambiance of Rabun Manor. Location provides easy access to Clayton or Dillard. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was a treat.

Actual perfection

My boyfriend and I were going to be white water rafting not too far away so we decided to stay in this unbelievable bed and breakfast as a retreat after all of the chaos of the river. We could not have made a better decision! The property itself was absolutely beautiful with southern charm to spare, not to mention the incredible views! The front porch was magical with a swing that we found ourselves perched on taking in the scenery multiple times! All of the accommodations were top notch with showers and beds that I wish we could've taken home with us. Now, the food. THE FOOD. It was beyond words! The inn keeper kept homemade treats stocked in the entryway and they did not disappoint! I honestly ate some every time I walked past, they were too good to deny. Unfortunately, we were only able to enjoy breakfast one of our mornings there and after experiencing all they offered in terms of the dining experience, I wish we had eaten there every opportunity we had. The setting was very charming with those breath taking views I perviously mentioned and the food was crazy delicious! As if this beautiful little place could possibly get any better, the hospitality was amazing! From the second we arrived, we were truly treated like family and we will never forget that! We can't wait to come back and enjoy this little piece of paradise some more!

Best getaway

Mini fridges in each room and icemaker in the common room would be great addition and make it perfect

Extraordinary Bed & Breakfast!

5 on August 08, 2014

Rabun Manor is the best B&B I've ever stayed in & I've stayed in many! The house is extraordinary! It has such an interesting history. Furthermore, there is a welcoming, comfortable..."I'm home".... feeling upon entering the house! Nancy, one of the owners, was charming & took excellent care of us. Her staff members were also extremely helpful. Each guest room is decorated with beautiful Victorian antiques adding to the authenticity of the house. The porches on both floors gave us a place to relax & reflect. I'm anxiously awaiting my next visit! Betty Holland
