The Barn at Lake Rabun
It's Your Time. It's Your Place.
We have restored and updated a 100+ year old barn in the style of a European hunting lodge. We have 7 bedrooms.and 8 1/2 baths, and an amazing commercial type kitchen. Outside: a fire pit, very large deck, beautifully lit grounds and much more.
Perfectly designed for family reunions, small corporate retreats, or multi-couple vacations. The home is located on 2 beautifully landscaped acres with a view of amazing Lake Rabun.
Available NOW for your memory making!
As soon as you walk in, you will be blown away by how beautiful the barn is! It is complete and total perfection. I stayed here with some friends for my wedding...everyone was just blown away by how perfect and beautiful it is. Everyone felt as if they were staying at a 5 star hotel! I have never seen a more beautiful place. It is super close to Halls where you can easily rent a boat, downtown Clayton and adorable downtown Lakemont! I truly truly hope we will be welcome again. Really one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed! On top of that, Scottie is very flexible and responsive. Everything went off without a hitch. Thank you so much again.
We had our wedding reception at The Barn this past weekend and it was great! My family stayed there as well and it was beautiful!!! Thank you so much for making it such a memorable experience that we will treasure forever!!
This was the perfect place to celebrate an 80th birthday with family. The home is so spacious and was excellent for our large group. All the bedrooms were perfectly appointed and the common areas were beautifully decorated. The Barn at Lake Rabun is awesome!
It's Your Time, It's Your Place.
The Barn at Lake Rabun has been restored into a place where family and friends could gather, rest, and unplug with carefree comfort in one of the most desirable spots in Georgia.
The original barn is a century old structure situated on a historic sight. Once a 500 acre estate owned by Coca-Cola executive Samuel Candler Dobbs, it functioned as a horse stable for the estate. The structure echoes the history and traditions of old Lakemont, combining an extensive use of large river stone and timbers from the surrounding area. The exterior has its own distinct personality boasting a dramatic cat-ski roof line reminiscent of a colonial saltbox style.
After numerous owners and renovations, the latest transformations reveal a more open and sociable floor plan infused with classic yet updated features.The unveiling begins with a custom barn door entry and striking antler handles that suggest what is to follow. Once inside, guests are greeted by a grand stone-floored foyer and dining room that leads into the great room.
Buckhead and Rabun based interior designer Scotty Mitchell designed the home with warmth and comfort giving it a relaxed elegance. Tasteful features include the reclaimed heart pine floors, touches of leather and iron, and soft wool carpets that run throughout the house. Each room contains a subtle reminder of the barn’s past whether a pair of leather riding boots, a hunting trophy, an antique horse feeder, a bit, a bridle or a riding habit. The once separated living areas are now reshaped into one large yet intimate space in a soft palette that showcases the gallery of original art, bronzes, antiques, and custom furniture.
There is a large stone fireplace and multiple seating areas that can accommodate large gatherings while still feeling cozy for smaller groups. The dormer windows in the great room create more openness while offering a visual surprise at dusk. The expansive commercial kitchen gleams with European pottery, copper, and stainless. It is fully appointed for guests to prepare their own gourmet meals or to bring in a private chef or Caterer. Guests can also enjoy a casual meal at the custom-built bar table in the kitchen. The media room, adjacent to the front foyer, has the most comfy sectional to snuggle into and watch movies or the big game on the large screen.
The home sleeps seventeen comfortably in the seven private bedrooms and eight and a half baths. The bedrooms are designed with serene comfort in mind. Each King bedroom features The Barn’s own “Barn Bliss”, Talalay organic mattress complete with luxurious European linens, and all of which have a private bath with marble vanities and slate tile floors. Additionally, there is a bunk room with custom-built bunk beds and a separate “hayloft” with bean bags and TV for kids to escape with their games and movies. Outside, relax in the cool mountain air and gentle breezes under manicured hardwoods on two acres of native plantings across from one of Georgia’s most beautiful mountain lakes.
Treat yourself to a bonfire under the stars; swing on the two-person rope swing overlooking Lake Rabun; and enjoy the expansive 1000 square foot deck that accommodates large or more intimate events under the tree canopy- with glimmering lights. The views are particularly striking at sunset when the light shimmers across the water and through the trees! After sunset guests are captivated by Buckhead based MoonTechs’ elaborate lighting design that sets the mood for any occasion. The landscape architecture and installation was provided by Georgia based landscape designers Live Oak Manors and W Designs.
At last, The Barn’s doors are open again for guests visiting the North Georgia Mountains & Lakes, family reunions, birthday parties, work retreats, a holiday residence, a girls’ weekend or any excuse to create a memorable experience with family and friends. When guests rent the The Barn at Lake Rabun, the entire house and grounds are theirs to enjoy!
