A Georgia Mountain Bed and Breakfast with Rustic Elegance

Looking for a romantic getaway to the beautiful mountains of North Georgia? Summer is here at The Overlook Inn, and everything is green and blooming, as far as the eye can see – the trees and foliage are beautiful. Now is a great time for nature lovers to enjoy the view from our Mountain-Top Venue, with the warmer temperatures (but not too warm!), the birdsong in full chorus, and the multitude of colors in bloom. Summer in the North Georgia mountains means whiling away the day on your very own “rockin’ chair porch” while the puffy clouds meander by in no hurry, or going for a walk or hike on one of the great trails or paths through the woods and seeing where the day takes you! It doesn’t hurt a thing that the mountain breezes and elevation make us much cooler and far less “sticky and bugg-y” than our low country friends. There’s no better place to beat the summer heat than the picture- perfect, peaceful Overlook Inn – reserve your stay today!

Located halfway between Ellijay, GA and Chatsworth, GA – and just two miles up GA Highway 52 from legendary Fort Mountain State Park – The Overlook Inn is the perfect place to enhance your trip to the beautiful North Georgia Mountains! Just an hour and a half from Metro Atlanta and a short hour’s drive from Chattanooga, The Overlook makes for the perfect “stay-cation”, and you’ll feel worlds away from the stress of the City.

Straddling Fort Mountain and commanding a breathtaking view of the Chattahoochee National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Overlook Inn Bed and Breakfast was designed to take full advantage of its magnificent surroundings. Its rustic exterior blends into the environment, yet conceals elegant lodging accommodations.

Guests at our North Georgia (GA) Bed and Breakfast Inn sleep in richly appointed guest rooms—each with a different personality and unique amenities like private porches, hot tubs, gas fireplaces, and a spectacular mountain view. Included with your room is an elegant 3-course homemade breakfast, always-available coffee, tea and assorted beverages with homemade goodies each afternoon, a wine and cheese hour on weekends, and candlelight dessert each Saturday night. Please let us know if you have any allergies to foods or special diets (we can usually accommodate vegetarian, gluten-free and diabetic diets) prior to your arrival, and we’ll do our best to accommodate!

Our B&B is located in North Georgia (GA) on top of Fort Mountain, between the mountain towns of Ellijay, Georgia and Chatsworth, Georgia, and near the mountain town of Blue Ridge, Georgia. It is a beautiful, serene setting for our adult guests 15 years and over.

Located next door to the Overlook Inn is The Overlook Inn Store. Local North Georgia wines, gourmet cheeses, summer sausages, salamis and crackers, gourmet coffees and teas, and various other Overlook gift items and Spa Products are available – the Overlook Inn Store is a “work in progress”, so you never know what interesting things you might find! Call ahead and we’ll have your favorite wine waiting in your room for you. Or better yet, join us for afternoon wine and cheese samples on weekends and choose your own favorite.

We do rent the entire Inn for group events! Call for details!

Your ideal North Georgia (GA) mountain vacation awaits you at The Overlook Inn Bed and Breakfast.



We’re so glad you found our Inn, a little slice of heaven up here in the clouds.  Regardless of the reason you’re coming, The Overlook will serve you well – whether it’s peace and solitude, quaint Mountain towns with interesting shops and marvelous dining experiences, off-the-beaten-path hiking and biking trails, or getting back in touch with nature and it’s beauty – the North Georgia Mountains and Overlook Inn have something for everyone.  Close enough to Atlanta and Chattanooga for an easy day trip, remote enough to lose yourself in the Cohutta Wilderness and surrounding forests, streams and lakes (not literally, we hope)…be prepared to find yourself, after you settle in, not wanting to leave the cozy amenities and fabulous views from the comfy chairs in front of our fireplace.  Hope to see you soon.
