Beechwood Inn – Georgia’s Premier Wine Country Inn

Select Registry member since 2005
Located in the very Northeast Corner of Georgia right on the Eastern Continental Divide. At our elevation it is cooler and greener than anywhere else in Georgia. All the great river systems start nearby, so we have an abundance of fishing, boating, rafting, and splashing. Our town offers fine dining, nearby wineries and nice unique shops to wander through. Beechwood Inn is privately located up a dead end road on a hill overlooking downtown Clayton and Black Rock Mountain across the valley. The location offers stunning morning and evening views.

Food & Wine

(Suspended During Covid 19) Dining Every Saturday Night: We are authentically Farm to Table, growing much of our produce with caring attention. 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.
