“Everything about the Overlook Inn is perfect! The views, the hospitality, and the FOOD! My husband and I had already started talking about coming back before we even checked out! I would recommend this stay to anyone who asks, or anyone that doesn’t ask!”

“The Overlook Inn exceeded all of our expectations. The hosts were very hospitable. The food was delicious and culinary art at its finest. The hot tub was perfect and we enjoyed the firepit where the host had pre-built a nice fire for us to enjoy. I can’t wait to go back in the winter and sit by the fire place cuddled up with a good book and a fresh cup of the delicious coffee.”

“We had the most wonderful experience staying here at The Overlook Inn. Bill and Nicole are two of the most wonderful people and we did not want for anything during our stay there. Everything was so clean. It felt like a home away from home where we visited good friends. The views from the great room area where breathtaking. I especially loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch outside my room enjoying the piece and quite. I would highly recommend The Overlook Inn and we do intend on going again some day.”

“This place is such a great hidden gem. The room was great, everything we needed. The hosts were super friendly, very informative, welcoming, and just overall great. The breakfast each morning were great – get the bacon with anything. Great location for nearby easy hiking and visiting the wineries out past Ellijay. We had a great time staying here, we will come back and we will encourage some of our friends to visit too.”

“Our host and hostess were caring about our comfort, friendly and accommodating for our entire stay. Breakfast was beyond belief (always ask for beacon). We opted for dinner while staying, and like breakfast, was sensational. Views from our room and the main hall were fantastic as you are at the top of the mountain.”

“We reserved this quaint B&B for a weekend getaway. The view and gardens are wonderful and the food is amazing! Make reservations for dinner because it’s far better than anything you will find nearby. The owners are very gracious and accommodating. Highly recommend!”

“A bit of heaven tucked on top of a mountain! The views and ambiance are breathtaking in this peaceful slice of nature. The inn is full of character and perfectly designed. Could not ask for more comfort. Bill and Nicole are warm, hospitable and talented innkeepers. There are lots of extra touches making this much more than a BNB! Don’t miss the wine and cheese hour on the weekend! Bill is chef extraordinaire so every meal is over the top! There is lots to do around the area – wineries, history, hiking, shopping, and the inn is a tranquil and magical place to sit and rest in between.”

“We were pleasantly surprised at our stay at the Overlook Inn. We were traveling for the USTA state tennis tournament in Dalton, GA and decided to stay in the mountains. The fall leaves were amazing and the outside space were inviting. I am gluten-free but they made sure my experience was as special as my husband’s. I was worried about a bed and breakfast because usually they don’t have much gluten-free and it isn’t worth it. Instead they made sure everything was gluten-free and it was delicious! We will be back for a weekend away.”

“We have been coming to this place for over 15 years and recently there were new owners, Bill and Nicole. Our experience continued to be fantastic and the food we had for breakfast was some of the most amazing food we have ever had at this location. Every morning was wonderful! The place was also incredibly clean and it is very apparent that Bill and Nicole do everything they can to make their guests feel special. We will continue to come here as we have for many years. We would highly recommend you give them a try.”

“Great host! Great common room! Great bedroom (Moon Eye)! Great meals! Did I mention this is a great place to stay. Using Overlook as a beginning point we went to Gibbs Garden and Fort Mountain. Already planning our fall trip.”

“Ok I only can say THIS IS THE BEST AWAY PLACE EVER!! Bill and Nicole are the humblest, kind, genuine, funny, loving, dedicated individuals! They run this awesome B&B all on their own – talk about a Power Couple! Our stay was amazing and so relaxing! Every room is AMAZING! The food is ridiculously yummy! Bill is a hidden top chef of the mountains and Nicole bakes and creates like grandma used to do! The rooms are so cozy and comfortable. Its a retreat in my opinion. The Overlook Inn deserves to be a 5 ***** hotel! Thank you Bill and Nicole for the vacation that we will never forget! AND WE WILL BE BACK!!”

“We stayed here at the end of May. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather to clearly see the North Georgia mountains from the large windows in the common room. My new husband and I took advantage of The Overlook Inn’s Elopement Package. Bill and Nicole made sure that we had the perfect day. From the delicious breakfast, to arranging the officiant, they oversaw everything. They provided champagne and cake, made us a fireside dinner for two that was pure bliss, and recommended an amazing local photographer to document our simple ceremony.”

“My wife and I needed new scenery after a summer of social distancing. We spent 4 nights at the Overlook Inn, and loved it! Amazing views, fantastic food, and Nicole and Bill were fantastic hosts. We stayed in the Conquistador room and the front porch area was fantastic. The joint dining room/social area had fantastic views complete with bears, and the area was a welcome getaway. Plenty of hiking, not too crowded, and a much needed respite. We will definitely be back.”

“We stayed over Valentine’s weekend, and it was a great time. Breakfast was delicious and something new every day. Bill and Nicole took great care of us. The surrounding area is fun to explore, lots of amazing views.”

“Bill and Nicole were great hosts. Very personable! We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute! Breakfast was amazing. My picky husband loved it also and even said it was one of the best places he has ever stayed. We rented The Grand Gahuti. King sized bed with a fireplace! We had our own private porch and hot tub. It was a cozy and romantic getaway for our anniversary! The inn is located right in the mountains so town is about 20 minutes away, but that was kind of the point. We wanted to be away to relax. Fort Mountain State Park is close by so we also got some hiking in. Definitely recommend the cheese and wine tasting on the weekends!”

“Absolutely beautiful place to stay! The hosts, Nicole and Bill were so thoughtful and friendly. My husband and I had such a peaceful stay at their Inn. They prepared a charcuterie board and wine for us in the evening, that we enjoyed while talking and viewing the breathtaking scenery. We spent part of our evening reading in the cozy living room. We stayed in the Fieldstone room, which was quite comfortable and spacious. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. After a restful sleep, we had Bill’s deliciously prepared breakfast to look forward to. Those were the best pancakes I have ever had! I highly recommend staying in their B&B, and we will definitely be back!”

“We just got home from a weekend getaway at the Overlook Inn and it was amazing! Bill and Nicole were so welcoming and gracious. It felt like a home away from home. The food was so great! I can’t say enough about it. The three course breakfast was so delicious. Each room had its own personality and unique touches. We loved our room and look forward to trying out some of the other themed rooms. Their great room was decorated for Christmas and had a huge picturesque window with a breathtaking view of the mountains. It was such a perfect relaxing and peaceful weekend. We hope to return again soon!”
