Welcome to the Smith House

The Smith House, located in the quaint Appalachian town of Dahlonega, Georgia, has had its doors open to visitors since 1899. One thing’s for sure, there’s no shortage of Southern Hospitality around here. Come sit back and enjoy our homemade country cooking in the family-style dining area and you’ll see what we’re talking about. Or come kick back for a weekend in one of our comfortable, yet luxurious, rooms and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of Dahlonega. Take a hike. Ride a bike. Take a vineyard tour. Shop around in the unique shops of our quaint town, which is located just one block from our doorstep. Come see what our little town has to offer.  We’re sure you’ll have a great time!
