It'll do.Posted Nov 17, 2013
Pros:Quiet location, only 10-15min from downtown. Tasty breakfast. Quaint rooms & common area. Two breakfast times. Cons: Limited parking. Smells of cat feces after rain. Small 19" t.v., terrible wi-fi reception, tiny shower stall and bathroom without ventilation fan, paper-thin walls, no temperature control in rooms, no telephone or alarm clock. Overpriced for what you get. Poor upkeep of exterior/grounds. We stayed here because of limited availability downtown. We will be considering other places for our next trip to Dahlonega.

Hotel was a disappointmentPosted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: We enjoyed the unique breakfast which included beverages, egg & sausage quiche, spinach brownies, & something similar to an apple custard tart.
Cons: There is very little that could not be improved.
Location: The location was in a run-down neighborhood on the outskirts of Dahlonega. Most of the activities there revolve around the town square.
The room was uncomfortable with unusually low ceilings on which we were constantly bumping our heads. (It is an a-frame building, and we were on the top floor.) Don't know if our room (the Geisha) was a converted attic or what, but there were only certain spots where we could stand upright. The bed faced the direction of the afternoon sun and the windows had threadbare curtains which made it too bright. The temperature in the room was comfortable for us, but if it hadn't been, there was no way for us to regulate it. The water pressure was too low in the sinks and shower, and there was no electrical outlet near the bathroom mirror, so that made it difficult to style our hair with a blow-dryer. In general, the property was not in good repair, and could use plenty of renovating. The appearance of the hotel in the photos on Expedia is misleading and makes the hotel appear more inviting than it actually was. In general, the staff was pleasant, but when we first arrived, right at 3:00 p.m., which was our check-in time, we had to wait several minutes for anyone to acknowledge us or check us in. The staff were helpful, if you asked for help, but they clearly didn't want to spend much time interacting with the guests. The price was very expensive, considering the condition of the hotel and other factors, so it was clearly over-priced. I was relieved that we only had reservations for one night. I would not stay at this hotel again, and I would not recommend it to anyone.

What a Quaint Find!!!Posted Aug 5, 2013
Location: Excellent restaurants and shopping int he area as well as amazing vineyards.
We took an unplanned trip to Dahlonega with no predetermined accommodations. Upon searching Expedia enroute, we found Lily Creek Lodge. The rates were very reasonable so we decided to stay. What a SURPRISE when we arrived! This is the absolute cutest lodge anywhere. It resembled a small German Thomas Kincaid cottage. We were told the doors were from a sunken ship and each room had it's own theme. The morning breakfasts were delightful and perfectly filling to start your day. The pool was just incredible and looked like that of a hidden lagoon. The best part was the innkeeper Sharon who made you feel like family, and her cat Biscuit! What a neat, neat trip we had and we will absolutely stay there again! Room 21 is the best!!! We have already referred our friends!

Secluded country chaletPosted Jul 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
I really like the Lily Creek Lodge. It is in the middle of the woods, very secluded, but very close to downtown Dahlonega. I only had on snafu while there. The first night I came home late and the outer door was locked. No amount of knocking or calling roused anyone. Thankfully I had other friends staying in the area so I stayed with them. The next morning the owner was very apologetic and refunded me the cost of the night. Apparently another guest locked the door - the door is not supposed to be locked. For the night I was able to stay in the lodge, I found it very comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was great. The pool looked great - but I didn't go in. I had weird stay but I would probably stay there again.

Quiet OasisPosted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: The pool area was secluded and well maintained, an interesting find surrounded by nature.
Cons: Individual room temperature controls. Nice but not necessary, our room was comfortable and the windows opened to allow for a nice cross breeze.
We were very pleased with our first impression of the Lily Creek Inn, our room was the "Secret Garden" located on the second floor. My wife and I found the room exceptionally clean and well furnished with a soft comfy mattress and very nice antiques. Outside to room was a balcony overlooking the forest. Breakfast served in the morning was tasty and filling. Overall, I would rate our experience a 4.5 out of 5.

A jewel in the woodsPosted May 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed in the "attic" room. Great place. The ceiling is a little low in places, But it was great. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, and our hostess was wonderful.

The owner and 1 staff were friendly; the hotel is a bit run down but has a rustic charm.

Nice Bed & BreakfastPosted Sep 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
My husband & I really enjoyed our stay at Lilly Creek Lodge. We stayed in the Morracan room which was on the 3rd floor. The room was clean, cozy and the bed was really comfortable. The down sides were: our room got very cold there was no way to control the temperature in our room. The other down side (which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for others) was that the stairs to get up to our room were very narrow and steep.
