“Our daughter chose Lake Rabun for her recent wedding, I can’t begin to say enough positive things about the experience. You will not find a prettier setting. Guests are still raving over the food at the reception. The wedding party stayed at the inn and the breakfasts were superb! The entire staff kept telling me “not to worry, that they would take care of everything and we just needed to enjoy ourselves at the wedding… and we did!”

“Amazing venue for our reception!”

“Our experience was wonderful! I would highly recommend The Lake Rabun Hotel to anyone who loves local farm to table dining, excellent service, and beautiful natural scenery. Our wedding was at Toccoa Falls and our reception was at the Lake Rabun Hotel. The General Manager was awesome to work with and went above and beyond to make us feel special. The Special Events Staff made our big day easy and stress free, they were easy to work with and did a fabulous job! We are so happy that we chose the Lake Rabun Hotel for our reception venue, they truly exceeded all of our expectations!”
