“Top-Notch!!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Excellent bed and breakfast, and a one-of-a-kind experience! The hosts are extremely hospitable, and give you a true southern experience while staying in a gorgeous house. The rooms are all different and very well kept. If traveling to this area, the York House is definitely the place you want to stay to get the true Northern Georgia experience.

We just got home from a lovely stay at The York House Inn built in 1895. We can't say enough about how lovingly the York House Inn has been restored by its current new owners - Stan and Christine Penton! Our room was huge and appointed with Ralph Lauren bedding and our own fireplace. We felt warm and cozy! The breakfast was delicious and served with Southern charm and hospitality! The adjoining living room was a nice spot to plan our days adventures. From visiting all the local antique shops to a fun drive up to Lake Rabun, we did it all. We enjoyed dining in near by North Carolina Highlands and will be returning in the Summer for some yummy peaches and warm weather fun. A plus vacation!

Room Tip: We had the corner suite-double room with the fireplace!

We were one of the first guests of the new innkeepers, Stan and Christine, for 2 nights this November. They welcomed us like family, and made us feel at home. They provided everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay, from snacks and wine, to fluffy towels and robes, and to AWESOME coffee and breakfast! To stay in this beautifully furnished and maintained historic inn is truly a unique and special opportunity. We hope to make it back next fall!

This was our second visit to York House Inn, and we returned because of the wonderful hospitality shown by Andrew and Janet. The charm of the historic inn combined with the warmth and hospitality extended by the hosts made both visits outstanding. The setting of the inn and the accommodations contribute to relaxation. Early morning coffee and the excellent breakfasts add to the inviting atmosphere. We have stayed in many B & B locations, but I must say this is one of our favorites.

Room Tip: Both rooms in which we stayed were equally pleasant.

To be a guest at the York House Inn <http://www.yorkhouseinn.com/> is to experience the best of staying in the oldest inn in Georgia in an historic setting but with contemporary amenities and comfort. (Couldn't help but think how awed the original travelers when the inn opened in 1896 would be to see what modern conveniences the inn now offers, including cable TV and heating/airconditioning.)

As other reviews attest, proprietress Janet Fletcher's legendary breakfasts are sure to get your day off to a good start with bountiful and delicious home cooking. She and husband Andy are gracious hosts and love to share produce from their farm (including goat cheese) with their guests. I'm an early riser and was pleased to find freshly brewed coffee and freshly baked banana bread waiting @ 0630 each day, much to the delight of other early morning guests with whom I enjoyed stimulating conversations. (Many are returning guests who make this a regular destination.)

The York House Inn is a wonderful retreat for all who seek peace and tranquility in the beauty and serenity of the north Georgia mountains.

My husband and I stayed here for a Valentine's Day retreat and enjoyed it so much that we are anticipating a return visit very soon. The Inn is very quaint and welcoming and very well maintained. The food is excellent as is the hospitality. If you are lucky enough to stay when the innkeepers are planning an evening meal, you must indulge yourself as it is some of the best food ever! The area is absolutely gorgeous and the numerous antique shops are quite reasonable. Dillard/Rabun Gap area and the York House Inn make for a fantastic mountain getaway.

Room Tip: The fireplace room is in the oldest section with an amazing hearth, the bathroom is very modern.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of spending two nights in the lovely old inn. The rocking chairs are very inviting as are the beautiful fir trees in the yard. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. Breakfast was amazing! This is the oldest inn in Georgia so if you want the Ritz it's not here. If you want quiet, clean,, comfortable, friendly, and bursting with character you have it at the York House Inn. We will be back!!

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have a TV or phone so make sure you ask..
