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.
