Why Owner / Property Manager chose Rabun Gap

Georgia's oldest Bed and Breakfast Inn since 1896 is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally known as a large ideal country home, the Inn has long been known for mountain spring water, and large verandas with views of the Little Tennessee River Valley. The design from original log farmhouse and 1840’s servant quarters to Victorian Inn reflects rural adaptations similar to hotels of the “Resort Era” in Rabun County as well as elements required to serve the needs of railroad travellers. The beautiful setting and history of community inspired the original family, past and now present Innkeepers Stan and Christine Penton. Beautifully decorated and romantic rooms and suites offer a variety of plush bedding arrangements, all have private baths and luxury amenities and some have fireplaces and private porches. Taking a rock on the veranda under the hemlocks, a quiet moment at our pre civil war Spring House, or a quiet walk in the forest area and country lanes recall a past era.

Our regular guests are individual stay rooms, one night to weeks at a time. We offer delicious breakfasts for all guests. To simplify the process for some groups or meetings or other special occasion, we open the use of the entire Inn. Should your planning not necessitate the entire Inn, join us by booking individual or group rooms by use of our website.

You are welcomed as any individual guest would be ( no remote control or lock box access here).

We are situated near the base of the Appalachian Trail, beautiful National Parks, Tallulah Gorge, Black Rock Mountain, hiking trails, horseback riding, fishing, motor-cycling, shopping, art galleries, flea markets, wineries, museums, auction house, white water rafting and so much more. Less than an hour drive to Cherokee NC and Harrah's Casino.

A getaway to the York House Inn Bed and Breakfast will be a memorable experience for your group.

What makes this hotel unique

We're not so far, and yet just far enough, all at the same time!

There are PLENTY of vacation rentals, but none that are a full service Bed and Breakfast Inn!

Look at descriptions, we may not SLEEP the most (24 people), however look at the descriptions. We have 11 INDIVIDUAL guest rooms and 1 suite ALL with separate bathrooms. We are the largest Individual room whole house rental in our entire area.

With that said, you experience service at York House Inn. We are not a place to just squeeze a bunch of people. We serve groups, tours, weddings, meetings and reunions that desire a higher standard of care. With that care, we do have limitations, especially our kitchen. Our licensing allows us to provide breakfast to you, but does not allow for groups wishing to prepare other meals. We do allow cater in and the kitchen is available as is our dining room.

Mollie's Back Porch is available for guests or groups as your very own shared guest pantry as a new amenity. For those individuals or groups wishing some at home convenience, we have this separate area to perhaps prep food for the bbq or provide a convenient staging area for lunch.

This intimate area provides:

- Honor system sodas, water and snacks

- Coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate anytime

- Guest refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffee maker

- Wet bar area with sink

- Preparation counter area

- relaxing sitting area

We offer a unique and intimate dining area, as well as the use of our Roc Room for your dining needs.

Thank you for your interest in York House Inn.
