    Rabun Manor is absolutely beautiful. Our daughter's rehearsal dinner was held at Rabun Manor on a
    gorgeous Friday evening in May, everything including food, flowers, and staff- was wonderful. Highly recommend.

    This venue is Excellent! We had the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding at Rabun Manor, it was excellent food, excellent service and I would HIGHLY recommend. Nancy and her staff made the night perfect. And the pre-planning with Nancy was smooth and she worked with every detail to make sure we were satisfied. Our guests kept raving about the beauty of the house, the food and the service - it was a great night of celebration. We would highly recommend this venue.

    Where to start... well first and foremost, I had my wedding at Rabun Manor and had all of our immediate family and wedding party stay here for the weekend. In the months leading up to the wedding I had a great team of people who worked side by side with Nancy to make our day come together. I live in Florida so I had to rely heavily on my wedding planner, Kaley Stephens, my decorator, Cagney Meads, and Nancy who owns Rabun Manor. No wedding comes together perfectly but it ends up being perfect and that is a direct result of my team and Nancy. I wanted to be able to have a wedding that was held in one place so the feel and ambiance of the night would not be broken. I did my ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at Rabun Manor. Nancy and her staff's hospitality is absolutely incredible. They went above and beyond to make sure each of our guests were taken care of, we had everything we needed, and the guest staying on property were accommodated. We had a destination wedding so all of our guests were traveling from different states. Everyone who stayed with us at Rabun Manor could not speak more highly of a place... From the feel of the manor and the decor, to the unbelievably comfortable beds, to the coziness of the rooms, and the delicious breakfast cooked personally by Nancy every morning. We didn't just have a 6 hour wedding, we had a 3 day experience for the guests that stayed at the manor. We were able to stay up late talking and laughing in the lounge (because everyone staying there was with our wedding), eat breakfast with each other every morning, and create unforgettable memories that we will take with us for a lifetime. Planning a wedding is stressful but Nancy did everything she could to relieve the tension and stress of preparing. This isn't your normal wedding venue. They have become our friends and will be embedded into our hearts forever. They are flexible and will work with you to create your dream wedding. I would highly recommend Rabun Manor!

    Rabun Manor's reply:

    Katie and Frankie,
    It was such a privilege to serve your family! You and Frankie were a beautiful couple with class, Roman was adorable with her princess like vision for herself. The entire week end was such fun for my staff. We were so thrilled to help you accomplish your dream wedding. I so appreciate your genuiness and true love for each other and those around you. I've been keeping up with you on Facebook and look forward to many anniversary celebrations.
    Nancy

This past weekend was the second time I have styled a wedding at Rabun Manor. Both times were breathtakingly beautiful. One was decked out to the nines, and the other was simple and elegant. The venue looks fabulous and works with either extreme. If you are looking for a beautiful Southern venue with charm in the mountains, look no further!
