Charming B&B!

4.4 on July 06, 2017

My wife and I recently celebrated our eleventh wedding anniversary with a visit to the North Georgia wine county and a stay at the Cedar House Inn – a great combination. The Inn is located within a 15 minute drive to four local wineries and downtown Dahlonega, GA. The Inn is a vacation house that has be converted into a quaint, comfortable and relaxing B&B located within a tree hugger’s paradise. Mary-Beth and Fred made us feel at home the minute we arrived, Fred even help us with our luggage. Our room had a sitting area and a private entrance, very comfortable. Each day started with a substantial and delicious breakfast was served on a screened in porch with plenty coffee and stimulating conservation. Overall and excellent experience. We will return!

Very nice B&B

Great place to stay! Hosts were so amiable and helpful with our trip planning. Easy access to Dahlonega and surrounding wineries and hiking.

Genuine care, extra touches, comfortable stay!

From the first moment we arrived, Fred and Mary Beth greeted us with a warm welcome, yummy treats, and genuine interest. They made us feel right at home. After resisting the temptation to "cheat" on my gluten-free diet at the coffee shop in town, arriving to Mary Beth's fresh-baked GF cookies meant alot! They were very accepting and accommodating of us. And the GF breakfast was amazing...even to the non-GF peeps! I was particularly impressed that Fred and Mary Beth sat with all of us at breakfast and facilitated interesting conversation among the guests. Everyone left the breakfast table smiling! I enjoyed recommending Cedar House Inn to the rest of my family in Atlanta, and recommend it to you too!

Hidden Gem in Dahlonega

5 on August 18, 2015

My husband and I stumbled upon this hidden gem while looking for a place to stay in Dahlonega. Fred and Mary Beth are such welcoming hosts. They go out of their way to make you feel at home!! Our room was beautifully decorated, spotless clean, and the bed was comfortable (rare in lodging, especially at this price). If you love food, this is the place to stay. We found ourselves fighting to find lunch and dinner that would somewhat compare to Mary Beth's breakfast. No such luck! Her breakfast was the topic of conversation throughout the day. In fact, I have tried to recreate her breakfast at home. Definitely not as good as hers. Please don't let the vegetarian menu scare you away. We are not entirely vegetarian and we were beyond impressed! You won't regret your decision to stay at the Cedar House Inn & Yurts! We will be back in fall or winter for a stay in one of the yurts!!!

Wonderful visit - Both Place and People

Best get away in Georgia

4.8 on September 16, 2014

Thank you Mary Beth and Fred for the most wonderful and friendly B&B experience. For a homesick Coloradan this was like a little taste of home with the mountains, eco friendly values, Amazing food and such friendly inn keepers! We were met with fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a very friendly puppy dog. We got great tips on dinning and music options in town and which chocolate shop to visit, which were both wonderful. The room as spic and span with beautiful simple mountain decor with a private seating area outside and a little floral stained glass. We sat on the covered patio which had board games and the inn thoughtfully has wine glasses and a wine opener just in case. And then came breakfast, magical, just magical. We ate on the patio and had stratta which was so light and fluffy topped with cherry tomatoes, fried sweet potatoes with rosemary (fresh from the garden), toasted banana bread with crunchy sugar, and fresh fruit with mint and to top it all off the flower garnish was a very yummy edible flower (nasturtium maybe? I forgot). All together a wonderful place to sleep, eat and meet two very wonderful inn keepers.

Cedar House Review

5 on March 30, 2014

My husband and I had a fantastic visit to Dahlonega, GA. We were very fortunate to have enjoyed our stay at Cedar House Inn. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. When we came inside the Inn we were greeted with the delicious aroma of fresh baked cookies and hot tea. It was easy to relax and to feel at home there. Our room accomodations were excellent. The bed was cozy and the private entry to the room allowed for the sound of spring songbirds when we chose to open the door. The breakfast provided was phenomenal! Fresh fruit, good coffee and awesome blueberry French toast casserole! We also met some other people staying at the Inn that felt like old friends.

Great Breakfast

We chose this B&B for the Vegan breakfast. They do offer vegetarian. Very nice couple run the B&B. The room was cozy & nice. Very near to the town of Dahlonega. The breakfast was hearty & delicious.

Thanksgiving in Dahlonega

We spent 3 nights at the inn for Thanksgiving 2013. We really enjoyed the company of our hosts. Mary Beth's breaksfasts were so good. I am not a fond of Georgia grits but the one's prepared by Mary Beth were different and I cleaned my whole plate!!! We will definitly come back in the future and maybe try the yurt this time. We enjoyed sharing conversations with Fred and his wife.The house and garden are very welcoming. Marcel and Chantal.. Atlanta GA
