Know for its classic style, this is the perfect lake for old-fashioned family fun. Stay at the Barn Inn at Lake Rabun, a 1920's stone-and-timber inn with a lake view, or check out Glen-Ella Springs Inn, a farmhouse-style inn, or the refined mountain lodge, Lake Rabun Hotel. Editor's tip: There are no boat rental facilities on the lake, so you'll have to BYOB and launch it from Hall's Boat House. Make sure you also bring your boater's license. If you don't have one, take a boater's education course online for a nominal fee at boat-ed.com.
