This is an exclusive 4WD or AWD mountain retreat off the beaten path nestled between two lakes in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Georgia. with stunning mountain views and the peace and serenity that only nature can provide. You may see a gorgeous sunset or an unbelievable starry night. You are a few minutes from Lake Burton and 15 minutes from the historic town of Clayton which offers casual and fine dining, art galleries, antiques, quaint shops and an Ingles grocery store.
Guests enjoy the lower level of a two story mountain house. You'll have private parking and entrance to the living room, with two separate bedrooms, one bathroom with a large Jacuzzi tub, and a small kitchen. There is a wood burning stove and the firewood is located in the guest parking area. Fresh linens and towels are provided.
A lower driveway leads to a private entrance going into the living room. The entire downstairs, with the exception of one room, is for guest use. The large living room has a beautiful view of the mountains and lake in the distance. The living room has a large selection of books, TV, WIFI although data is limited. The kitchenette also has a Keurig machine and microwave. Please let me know what you would like for breakfast or snacks so I can stock it before your arrival. Outside is a wonderful porch swing, nearby is a small pond, and more seating to rest, read a book, enjoy the view or a glass of wine.
We try to be available when guests arrive to answer any questions they may have. But we come and go, and if we’re not there you can reach us on the phone. We are happy to help in any way to make your stay a memorable one. We have maps, pamphlets and brochures describing the places to go, things to see and do and also shopping and dining options. Emergency services are also noted.
We are located 15 minutes from the historic small town of Clayton, Ga. In 2015, the State of Georgia designated Rabun County as the “Farm to Table Capital of Georgia”. There are a lot of great choices for food ranging from the Universal Joint, which apparently was an old gas station and serves the best hamburgers on the planet, or a healthy organic meal at Grapes and Beans to fine dining at the Fortify or Rabun Lake Hotel & Restaurant but, there are just too many choices to list. There are several nearby State Parks. Tallulah Gorge State Park is not only one of the oldest geological features in North America; it also is one of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U. S. Just north of town is the Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center which was started by local high school students who documented their history, lore, and family stories to share with the world. Although there’s plenty to do, see and explore……the best part about being here is just relaxing!
