Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Lily Creek Lodge, Dahlonega, Georgia, is a European style bed & breakfast located in the heart of North Georgia wine country. Lily Creek’s simple Alpine chalet exterior and natural woodland landscape belie the quiet sophistication of the eclectic interior. Luxurious linens and feather duvets, handcarved and master-crafted European antique furniture, and an art collection from around the world (including Icart, Dali, Picasso, Majolica from Italy, Carrera marble statue, nineteenth century French bisque, Moser crystal, oils and watercolors from exceptional local artists) are just inside the Hobbit-like front door. Enter using the sixteenth century hardware rescued from a ship, sunken for centuries off the coast of Florida, and be greeted by the gracious and friendly owner, Sharon, and staff. The owner and staff are dedicated to providing an uncommon, romantic and relaxing getaway in the Georgia mountains.

Quaint B&B

5 on November 27, 2017

This B&B is nestled in the woods with spectacular views. The decor is superb and each room is uniquely decorated with it's own style. The food is amazing and the staff is extremely personable. I highly recommend this little nugget for a getaway!

The perfect small town getaway!

My wife and I just had a new baby and were dying to get out of the house. We decided to take a spontaneous trip to Dahlonega and Sharon was more than happy to accommodate us. The lodge was quaint and well kept with clean rooms and soft beds. We loved our stay and have already recommended it to some of our friends! Lily Creek Lodge is the reason you should visit Dahlonega!

This bed and breakfast has all the details that you expect at a B&B. Quiet, restful and beautiful grounds to walk around. The breakfast was wonderful and our host Sharon was very accommodating with our special needs. We will stay here again if the opportunity arises.

Our favorite Bed and Breakfast

5 on May 02, 2017

I just stayed at the Lily Creek. this was one of many many visits and I realized afterward that I have never left a review. Lily Creek is a hidden gem. My wife and I stay here everytime we visit Dahlonega. The owner Sharon is always friendly and ready to greet you with a nice glass of wine. The rooms are fashioned to tell stories of Sharon and Don's travels around the world. And, the Breakfast is to die for. Do not feel bad when she says you don't have to choose you have both the muffin and the cheese biscuits. You should really try both. If you ever happen to be in the Dahlonega area I recommend staying at Lily Creek. It is worth the visit. Rob Prout Newnan, GA

Nice escape

Was up for Bear on the Square. Proximity to Dahlonega was perfect. No cell service was a plus in my book-they really should market that as a perk! There is wifi if you absolutely cannot survive without being connected. Beautiful grounds, breakfast was delicious, the owner and the young lady that checked us in were very pleasant.

Southern Charm

Southern hospitality, this is a little jewel in the beautiful woods of GA. Quiet, clean, with friendly staff. Nice getaway.
