The inn's restaurant features a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Wine Enthusiast Magazine places Beechwood Inn in the Top 5 Destinations "for your next wine and food-focused escape."

Don't forget the comfort. Travel writer Becky Lamb says: "Beechwood Inn is the closest thing to a Napa Valley Bed and Breakfast we have in Georgia." Luxury suites all with private baths, most have fireplaces, private porches and mountain views. The Inn's landscaped five-acre property is perfect for weddings and receptions.
