I spent 35 years in the hospitality business and for years 150 nights/year in a hotel. Our experience at the Beechwood Inn was over the top. Every part of our stay was flawless and the managers were perfect hosts. We met many other guests at the cocktail hour and breakfast and it all felt like being at home. Great job. Larry Mischik


Great Romantic Getaway

4.0 on April 17, 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at the Beechwood Inn. We enjoyed the rooms, service, and the cooking. We ate at the Fortify Kitchen and Bar Restaurant and absolutely loved it. Clayton is cool mountain town with hiking nearby. We loved the stay and would highly recommend it for a romantic weekend getaway! BTW: The wine was excellent as well!


Girls weekend

Beechwood Inn is Outstanding

5 on April 03, 2017

Beechwood Inn in North Ga mountains is charming and comfortable. The Inn keepers David and Galye have taken care of all the details to make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and inviting. Wine Thirty is a wonderful chance to meet your hosts and other guests while finding out more about the local area. We will definitely be back.


2nd Anniversary from Lafayette, GA

4.8 on March 30, 2017

My wife and I stayed here for one Saturday evening for our anniversary and it was exceptional. The room was clean and well prepared, and the atmosphere was serene. David was incredibly knowledgeable and eager to share his talent with us all that evening. The food was fresh and noticeably cared for in preparation. The wine parings were spot on and service was above and beyond. This was a memorable event for my wife and I and we are proud to have spent it at Beechwood Inn. We will return for sure and will recommend it to our family and friends. God Bless!!


Wonderful weekend stay and wine dinner

Our first visit but we expect to return. The room was lovely and the wine, appetizers, breakfast and Saturday night dinner with wine was wonderful, we wish we lived closer and could visit for dinner more often. Scones and fresh bread were delicious!


Great North GA Mountain Charm

5 on March 22, 2017

First time to visit Clayton, Ga and we were not disappointed. Our hosts at Beechwood Inn were very welcoming and informative. The property is nestled on the mountain side and gives great views. Winethirty was a treat in the evenings and a wonderful way to get acquainted. We were made to feel like long time friends, comfortable and at home. This is definitely a place we will make a return visit.

Signature Dish

Crab Cake Avocado Relish, Poached Egg, Sauce Maltaise
Sauce Maltaise is a variation on the classic Hollandaise. It is made with orange juice rather than lemon. Here we have made breakfast by putting it on a crab cake and poached egg, but it is equally at home on fresh seasonal asparagus.
