We wish there was another ranking better than "Excellent", as that would be more appropriate for our experience. Everything (EVERYTHING) about Long Mountain Lodge was terrific. The lodge itself is spotlessly clean and carefully designed. Unlike many B&B's, this one was designed and built for this purpose approximately 7 or 8 years ago. However, due to the design and decor, you get the best of both worlds . . . the charm of that you would expect from a B&B and the benefits of a well thought out lodge. Our room had it's own patio and gave us a great view of the mountains. There are plenty of common areas to sit and relax and meet others or to read one of the many vintage books they have in the library (remember "Dick and Jane" -- I even found a copy of the Boy Scout manual I used ___ years ago - LOL). However, privacy is not an issue . . . plenty of room to have some "alone time", if you want. There's even a pond or two on the property that you can take a short hike to and it will be just you and the (large) trout that have been stocked.
My wife and I were looking for someplace different to celebrate our 24th anniversary. As recently as 30 days ago, we didn't know that Dahlonega even existed. An offhand comment by someone in my wife's office caused us to do some research and, fortunately, we not only made the trip, but also were lucky enough to find this B&B. As we knew literally nothing about the area, we put ourselves in the hands of Dianne and Don. It must be mentioned that they were not the "pull a flyer off of the wall and hand it to the guest" type of people. Not only did they give us "insider" info, they made every effor to make sure we felt like their friends. While many B&B reviews may use the "friends" word, we mean it in it's most sincerest sense. We truly feel that we've left the Lodge with both memories and true friends. We've already made plans to return during different seasons so we can experience the waterfalls and the mountains again. We live in south Florida and this is the perfect get-away for us.
There's so much more (Diannes's fantastic breakfasts, outdoor concerts in the town square; the Holly and, great retaurants to name a few) but just writing about it makes me want to go back . . .now.
Truthfully, for us, it really doesn't get much better than this (and we are seasoned travellers who have been to many, many B&B's).
