Okay, I’m not really going to list one hundred reasons to visit The Dillard House, but take my word for it, there are at least 100.
In 1917, Carrie and Arthur Dillard opened what is the present-day Dillard House in the North Georgia Mountains when they welcomed their first lodger. Today, after one-hundred years and thousands of guests later, Dillard House Inn in Dillard, Georgia is celebrating a century of welcoming guests, providing comfortable lodging, and serving up heaping portions of Southern Hospitality.
A Rich History
The Rock House Inn is the original boarding house which opened in 1917.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and feature glorious views.
The Dillard House is famous for delicious, generous portions of farm-to-table traditional Southern fare served up family-style.
All the favorites are available for sale in the shop at Dillard House.
A Mountain Retreat
The Dillard House is a mountain retreat the entire family will enjoy. There’s a riding stable on site as well as a petting zoo, swimming pool, and breathtaking scenery. Rabun County offers multiple outdoor activities in close proximity to the inn. Guests may take advantage of an array of offerings such as fly-fishing, falconry, a zip line, white water rafting, golfing, hiking, gem mining, cycling, and boating. Additionally, Dillard House is a short distance from Black Rock Mountain State Park, Tallulah Gorge State Park, and Moccasin Creek State Park.
Not an outdoorsy type?
Horseback riding is one of many outdoor activities available to guests.
Celebrating a Century of The Dillard House
Though nestled in a remote part of the Little Tennessee Valley in the North Georgia Mountains, getting there is easy. The Dillard House is a short 84-mile drive from Asheville, NC, 16-miles south of Highlands, NC, three and a half hours southwest of Charlotte, and about 2-hours northeast of Atlanta. Dillard House is an ideal spot for getting away from it all yet not having to journey too far to do so.
The Dillard House in Dillard, Georgia has been welcoming visitors since 1917 offering a relaxing escape, beautiful mountain vistas, recreational activities, good food and world-class Southern Hospitality. There’s much to do and plenty of opportunities to relax, unwind, and enjoy the mountain scenery. I enjoyed my brief stay and look forward to returning with my family in-tow next time.
