Dining Every Saturday Night: We are authentically Farm to Table, growing much of our produce with caring attention. We are as local as local gets and of the season to the moment. Beechwood Inn offers fine dining in the North Georgia Mountains every Saturday featuring Chef’s Tasting Dinners paired to fine wines. Each menu is pre-selected by our chefs based on what is seasonal and available that day. Most of our seasonal foods are organic and natural, many from sustainable North Georgia farms, orchards, dairies and vineyards. Reservations are needed. The Inn features Northeast Georgia’s only Wine Spectator Award of Excellence wine list. To further enhance our diner’s farm to table experience we operate Grow, Cook, Eat – Culinary Garden, an organic vegetable, herb and edible flower farm in Rabun County. Our farmers collaborate closely with the kitchen to grow heirloom and native landrace crops, expanding even more the potential for our kitchen to provide an outstanding dining experience. We proudly farm organically, and utilize a broad array of heirloom and native varieties grown in this region for centuries. These landraces create a biodiverse, sustainable and flavorful alternative to everyday foods. The Inn has been named one of the "10 Best Farm to Table restaurants in Georgia."
