"The Best B&B in the Whole Southeast Region of the US"
August 2012, hollifq2, Lawrenceville, Georgia, United States
The Customer Service was the Best, this started from the first email I sent , inquiring about a weekend we wanted to stay at Bald Mountain House, the owners Monica & Tony Martin made sure we have the right directions -emailed a copy to me because the GPS can turn you around on the mountain giving you wrong directions or not work,We drove right up to the house no problem and was greeted by both Tony and Monica when we got there., She had also ask if there were any special diet needs or restrictions, I have never been ask this before anywhere. There isn't but it was nice she ask. I had told Monica we would be there around lunch time , when we got there she had ask if we had lunch yet, we had not. so she did her magic in the Ktichen, before we could settle down good , the food was on the table, Monica is a Gourmet Chef. Now the House, it is Beautiful, it was built to their spec's , all of the bedrooms are beautiful with a great view, and you cannot hear your neighbor unless you open the bedroom door, each has its own sitting room, bathroom, TV, separate bedroom, we stayed in the owners choice, the Blue Ridge room, my wife loved it, you could here & see the creek running down beside the house, Fresh Coffee was just right outside the door at the end of the hallway, with a jar of fresh home made cookies., So My wife was served coffee in bed before we when down stairs, the Bed was so Comfortable My wife asked the owners what make they were., No problem falling to sleep here. Monica will ask you what time you would like breakfast,and have it ready, made from scratch NO store bought Biscuits here, this is stick to your ribs home cooking with a true Chef's touch, sausage & gravy over home made Biscuits, home made Cinnamon Rolls, Fresh Fruit, I'm gettiing hunger just thinking about it. This place is open all year around. There is 2 Porchs with Rocking Chairs and Cushion Seated chairs, Monica Made the cushions, we set out there and watch the Birds, Chipmunks, A small flock of Turkeys come walking up the drive, Anne said Thanksgiving is going up the drive. we missed the deer when we went up the mountain, There is a Doe with a pair of twins tah visit's Daly. We owned 2 units in Central Florida at a 5 Star Rated Resort, that cannot hold a candle to this Place in any fashion. We went up to the top of Bald Mountain 360 view, took some pictures and Little Bald Mountain, Drove around the Laurel, the whole place is beautiful, the is a Golf Course there. We drove up from Lawrenceville Ga, part of the Atlanta Metro Area, beautiful 4 hour drive all the way from here to there. I can tell you this 2 days is not long enough, I not sure a week would be long enough. Anne and I both had gave cards to the same couple the evening we got back home, she had giving the preachers wife a card and I had giving the preacher a card not knowing that either one of us had told either one on them about the Bald Mountain House. It was real nice getting away from everything and enjoying God's Country even if it was only a couple days & nights. Thank You Monica & Tony , We'll be back.

"Gorgeous simple and elegant"

Bald Mountain House is a hidden gem located in the gated Wolf Laurel Resort Community. The bed and breakfast is elegantly decorated with 3 spacious upstairs bedroom suites, each with their own view of spectacular mountain scenery. Linens, top quality, are clean and fresh. Beds are exceptionally comfortable. The owners, Tony and Monica, are very welcoming and enjoy ensuring their guests are comfortable. Monica, a gourmet cook, prepares delicious meals. My family and I would highly recommend The Bald Mountain House for any occasion anytime of the year. Perfect setting for a family reunion to a weekend getaway. The three of us will absolutely be back.
"BEST breakfast and friendly service!"

My husband and I stayed at the Bald Mountain House for the Fourth of July holiday weekend and it was a wonderful experience. We stayed in the cozy Blue Ridge room; the room overlooking the creek. It has a bedroom, a sitting room with a window seat and a bathroom. All accommodations were clean and inviting. The breakfasts were delicious. Monica, the owner, prepared Eggs Benedict with coffee and fresh fruit the first morning and the hollandaise sauce was made from scratch. I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts, including some in Napa, CA for our honeymoon, and the food and rooms here FAR exceeded any place else. This is, by far, the BEST breakfast money can buy, and at a very competitive price. Great value. I have paid much more for much less. The owners, Tony and Monica are just wonderful. For the Fourth of July evening, we went up to Bald Mountain and watched the fireworks. The view up there overlooks three states! Amazing. I can't wait to come back to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains and visit my favorite home away from home, the Bald Mountain House.
