Once you prepare yourself for the 2 hour wait to get seated for Thanksgiving, it's a terrific Thanksgiving meal and experience. We brought and played cards while we waited, and once we sat down to a full table with fried chicken, turkey, ham, sweet potatoes,...More

They don't take reservations unless it's a group of 15-20. So best to go at non peak time of day, week or season. I enjoyed the historic nature of the property and reading the stories on the walls. The custom silver plated cash register was...More

No, there is not a pool. I wouldn't call the Smith House a resort. It is part of the history of Dahlonega. Located right off the downtown square.

Famous for our all-you-can eat family style meals. Country vegetable and fried chicken is everyone's favorite. Stay in our historic inn and visit our historic town square of Dahlonega where the first Gold Rush was located. The Smith House is locked one block from the square.
