    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.

    Delicious cakes! We contacted Donna on Monday hoping by a long shot that we could meet with her and talk wedding cakes. She not only met with us for a tasting the next morning super short notice but she made 3 beautiful cakes exactly as I had described that tasted even better! The presentation was impressive alone but when that was accompanied with light, delicious red velvet, caramel, and lemon cakes we were blown away. Donna's flexibility, her genuine friendly personality and her willingness to help us out put her and our experience with the Rabun Manor over the top. I would absolutely recommend them if you are planning on getting married in the area.

    Nancy and the staff at Rabun Manor were absolutely great to work with! Very proffessional, but personal. Our daughter's wedding reception was perfect! The food received rave reviews from our 200 guests and everyone has commented on what a great staff and beautiful facility.... Many of our out of town guests hope to make a return trip to the Manor and take advantage of the great food with the benefit of the the great staff. We would recommend anyone looking for a great venue for a special event, getaway, or just a wonderful evening out with excellent food and truly wonderful staff, please take the time to check out the gem of Rabun Manor in Dillard, GA.

    The Manor is a beautiful venue for your wedding and reception. Nancy, Ginger, Steve and the entire staff were knowledgeable and so kind to all of us. Our daughter, Kelsey fell in love with the beauty and atmosphere the first time she saw the Manor. Several of our guests stayed in the Manor and have said they hope to make a return trip soon. The food was truly excellent and grits to die for. =) We hope many looking for a venue will use Rabun Manor as it is truly a romantic setting for that special day in your daughter/son's life. We were blessed to have had the opportunity to have our daughter's wedding reception with no stress just pure delight and enjoyment! We will be up soon to enjoy dinner again at the Manor! Blessings, Patricia James

    One of the best experiences we've ever had. The food, the atmosphere, the service all were above and beyond our expectations. The staff were diligent and professional. The surroundings were beautiful. The food exceptional. A party to remember. I would definitely recommend!

    Rabun Manor was like a step back in time. The caretakers updated this house in keeping with its time period of the late 1800s. It is decorated beautifully and is comfortable, spacious and immaculate. Their hospitality is like no other--warm, friendly and definitely Southern-style. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. So, if you are looking for a relaxing get-away with a backdrop of the north Georgia mountains, this is the place for you!

    Just wanted to give you guys another great big “THANK YOU” for making our weekend and wedding experience so special and perfect! If we had another daughter (LOL) we’d choose Rabun Manor all over again for the wedding memory of a lifetime! You guys went above and beyond our expectations in meeting our needs, tending to our guests and making sure all was in order. Thanks for feeling comfortable enough with us to join in our celebration as well, that was special! Seeing some of you (we won’t name names) jump in and line dance was a treat! That speaks volumes about your comfort level with us as well!

    We are so blessed to have the daughter and new son that we have, the blending of two families into one and the blessings of the Lord upon us all! Thank you for sharing your home with us and making us feel as if it were our own! We continue to get rave comments for friends and family about how perfect the setting and the experience was, from Rehearsal straight thru to reception. Thanks for working with us on Sunday for clean up and decoration retrieval as well.

    It is our prayer that the Lord will bless your families and your property with many wonderful events in the future and that all you do at Rabun Manor will serve to give Him glory above all!

    Blessings!
    John & Cathy Jowers
    Rabun Gap, GA.

    Rabun Manor is beautiful. It has an old southern charm that is hard to find. It was the reception of our dreams! The staff is amazing! They worked with us to come up with a custom package that fit our budget and needs which is rare when dealing with a vendor. We really appreciated them being so accommodating! Chef Kyle, Steve, Nancy, and Ginger met with us to plan the menu, decorations, and schedule for the reception and were very attentive to all the details and our wishes. The food was delicious! We were so glad we took time to actually enjoy the five star meal prepared by Chef Kyle. Our guests really enjoyed it, too! We would wholeheartedly recommend any couple looking for a reception site to seriously consider Rabun Manor! You won't be disappointed!

    We held the reception dinner at Rabun Manor for our son's wedding. The setting is beautiful, the folks friendly and very helpful, and the food was great. I'd highly recommend it for an event, or just a great meal.

    We selected the lower event room and patio. The day was quite windy and chilly but they had the fountain running which was nice. The event planner that worked with us left Rabun Manor's employment prior to our event. We were concerned about how this would change our experience. In the absence of the event planner, the staff seemed like they were not expecting us when we arrived for set up as no one came to greet us when we arrived, but it all came together and they were very helpful. The grounds did not seem cared for but it was a very windy day and i can understand why there were many sticks and leaves around. The facilities we used were handicapped accessible which was important to our group as we had some guests in wheelchairs. We had desserts with tea and lemonade. The Rabun manor employees decided to have coffee available which was a great idea due to the chilly temperatures. All the deserts were fabulous and the staff maintained the desert tables and kept them filled with deserts and the dirty dishes removed.

    Best deal around for a venue with tables and chairs included.
    Gorgeous mountain view from an elegant and rustic venue.
    However catering can only be provided by the venue.
