Phil and Pat Cunniffe - Owners

Hearthstone Lodge is closed


After 14 great years we have retired and gone out of business.

Thank you so much to all our guests throughout the years, we have many friends and will miss seeing them year after year.

We plan to travel throughout the country for the next few years and settle down closer to our children and grandchildren.

Good luck to you and God bless you!

News and reviews

Georgia Trend Magazine

“The Hearthstone Lodge is nestled between Fort Mountain and Carters Lake with over one hundred acres of forest and solitude, rustic with modern touches, it’s the sort of place Ernest Hemingway would enjoy”

Georgia Where Magazine

“Weekend getaways” - one of Georgia’s great small inns big on charm. Quiet and peaceful!


Pat was featured on two H & G syndicated TV shows — “Open House” with Lynn Weaver, and “Flavors of the South” with Rhonda Thomas.

Here is what guests had to say...

WOW! That's not only your first impression as you approach this magnificant lodge from the outside, but you find yourself saying it often throughout your stay. This is an extremely inviting and comfortable home. The decorating is impeccable and the views looking in are just as soothing as looking out over the tranquil wooded lot. The owners of this amazing home are absolutely fabulous and certainly round out the awesome experience. The gourmet, multi-course breakfast each morning was certainly a treat and will keep you full until dinner. There are walking trails with creeks right outside the lodge. We were only 20 minutes from a good selection of restaurants, the top of Fort Mountain SP (awesome views), and horseback riding. We will definitely stay here again.

This is by far our favorite B & B that we have stayed at. There are a lot of B & B's out there but there aren't many that give the personal touch that Phil and Pat do. They make you feel at home the moment you walk in the door. Pat's artistic abilities not only in the kitchen but throughout their home are exceptional. She is truly a talented lady. And Phil was very helpful not only in recommending restaurants and attractions in the area but also giving us a personal tour of their property. From beginning to end our weekend at The Hearthstone Lodge was perfect. We will definitely be going back in the near future.

This bed & breakfast is special. Nestled in the woods, it provides the perfect weekend get away. The innkeepers are friendly and the breakfasts are scrumptious. Worth the money!
