The Smith House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 November 2013

We had spent the day touring the North Georgia wineries and arrived in Dahlonega about the time to start looking for accommodations. The Smith House combines comfortable rooms with a family style, all you can eat restaurant at very affordable prices. The guest rooms are set off of a "living area" where you can relax and read or fire up your I-pad with their complimentary Wi-Fi.
The restaurant is set up with large tables which seat eight or more, so you will usually be paired with others to enjoy friendly conversation. The food is served in help yourself dishes and bowls and is comprised of three meats and a variety of vegetables. The fried chicken and creamed corn were delicious!! My advice is to try and control your intake and eat slowly or the result will remind you of trying to push back from the Thanksgiving dinner table. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel was quiet, although quite full that night, I believe. We left the next morning well rested and continued our North Georgia journey. We highly recommend The Smith House and will hopefully return there in the future.

We stayed in room #1 at the Smith House in Dahlonega, GA for two nights. The beds were very comfortable. The room, including bathroom, were clean. The air conditioner worked according to the setting.
We liked the proximity to the square with great shopping and dining and easy access. The gold museum is on the square.
We did not eat at the hotel restaurant. Rather, we ate full breakfasts at cafes on the squares. One day was spent visiting local wineries. Do not miss this experience. Just driving around the countryside is worth your time. Recommend visiting on week days, if possible, in order to avoid the Atlanta day trippers and weekenders.

Room Tip: Double queen room Room #1

my wife and I stayed at the smith house on 10/13/13 and stayed in room number one. We were awaking in the middle of the night because the air condition shut off. This was due to the fact that they preset the temperature to a very uncomfortable setting.it was hot and we had to select the fan only on the air condition in order to sleep. Was not happy at all.

Room Tip: Don't stay if you like to be cool at night

We on a trip threw the north Georgia mountains and hit Dahlonega about the time to find a Hotel. The Smith House is excellant in every respect. Nice Home and Carriage House turned into a hotel. Everything is totally remodeled and looks really great. Rooms are perfect, located just off the main square so everything is within walking distance. We would highly recommend it.

We stayed 3 nights at The Smith
House and the room was very quaint and the service was great.
We never tried out the restaurant as we don't eat meat and there was no seafood alternative. My other suggestion was that instead of a continental breakfast that they offer a regular breakfast in the dining room. I would definitely go back as we had a great getaway weekend!!

I came in late for a race, and this was my first stay at the Smith House. Very nice room, great value, and the perfect location. Very well appointed room with a very comfortable bed. Highly recommend this one!!!

We rented a 2 bedroom villa at the Smith House in Dahlonega on Sept 28, 2013 for 1 night. The villa had everything needed for a long stay and was fully equipped including washer and dryer. The best thing about the villa was the balcony with a view overlooking the town square. There was a bicycling race going on and we were able to watch comfortably from our villa.
