This is the fourth time I have stayed at Heron Cove this year, needless to say it is my favorite B&B in Georgia . I will always stay at Heron Cove on my way to NC or if I want a relaxing place to stay while exploring Georgia. Feels like visiting with family with Dee Dee and Carolyn. Love it...

The best! So relaxing, great breakfast. We saw deer evening and morning from our room over looking Lake Lanier. Hosts were so helpful with suggestions on local areas of interest. We wanted a place to stay after the Saturday night concert at the Botanical Gardens, could not have been more perfect.

We stayed one night 7/17. The hospitality, quarters, directions were all great. Dee Dee and Carolyn are gracious hostesses. The quarters are clean, comfy, spacious, and private. Breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful including home-grown fruits and eggs! It was prepared and served elegantly and lovingly. These gals know how to make guests feel at home and comfortable. Well done.

My stay at Heron Cove was terrific. We rented two rooms, one for three of us teenagers and one for our grandfather. The owners were very nice to talk to and made a wonderful breakfast that satisfied four different tastes. Heron Cove is only a couple of miles from the local beach and has wonderful restaurants also within a couple...

Everything was great. The room was clean; bed AND pillow both comfortable. Breakfast was eggs, sausage, bacon, grits, toast, orange juice, fruit, coffee (could not have been better). The first day spent hours talking to the owners. The house is nestled among the trees and overlooks the lake, great place to sit and read. I plan on staying again in...

We have a very nice stay at Heron Cove. The setting on Lake Lanier is quiet and pleasant, the suite was comfortable and clean, and the hosts, Carolyne and Dee Dee very accommodating. Breakfast was delicious.

If you're lucky, you won't remember your hotel :/ Based on the reviews, I decided that our family should stay at Heron Cove rather than a hotel. I don't get enough vacation. We were traveling from NC to GA for a family wedding, staying Friday and Saturday nights. A hotel would have just been a place to watch TV in...

First time staying and a B&B. The proprietors are two amazing people, the made my brother and Me right at home. We thought we were staying with family.

Heron Cove Guest House was the perfect place for a stopover between Atlanta and the mountains of North Carolina! The accommodations were extremely spacious, comfortable, and impeccably clean.

I've never stayed at a B & B before. Heron Cove was my first and this experience from this point forward has the bar set pretty darn high! Carolyne and Dee Dee were the most hospitable hosts ever. They were friendly, helpful and their home was welcoming and comfortable. A stones throw from Lake Lanier Rowing Center with a beautiful...
