    Amazing venue for our reception!

    Our experience was wonderful! I would highly recommend The Lake Rabun Hotel to anyone who loves local farm to table dining, excellent service, and beautiful natural scenery. Our wedding was at Toccoa Falls and our reception was at the Lake Rabun Hotel. The manager, Josh, was awesome to work with and went above and beyond to make us feel special. Josh and Annie made our big day easy and stress free, they were easy to work with and did a fabulous job! We are so happy that we chose the Lake Rabun Hotel for our reception venue, they truly exceeded all of our expectations!

    Perfect wedding day

    We had a beautiful ceremony just outside the hotel on the stone steps and a delicious dinner on the porch after. Everything was perfect, my guests were impressed and Amy was fantastic to work with. She was super responsive and complied with all of my requests.

    The Lake Rabun Hotel and Restaurant's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Brooke! We're so glad you enjoyed everything with us and can't wait to have you with us again soon! Maybe for your honeymoon trip next year? *wink wink*
