Why Buck Goff chose Clayton

There are so many different places to explore in this area, from rafting to boating and fishing.Sometimes just relaxing on the porch is a nice way to spend the evening.

What makes this house unique

The nice thing is that most places to visit out from the house are only a hour's journey. The Biltmore Estates or Clemson South Carolina and even the Great Smokies can easily be made into a day's journey.

Quiet house in the woods

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at this property with my family and really enjoyed the location. It is overlooking the woods and we saw deer and turkeys behind the house several times. The house is clean and very open so I felt as if we had room to spread out while staying here. There is room to sleep 4 with 2 bedrooms with a large bed in each room but beyond that it would have to be a teen or kid. The other bed is a fold out couch that can only accommodate 1 person unless you sleep on one of the rollaway cots that are in the closet. Overall, we were happy with the property and would definitely stay again.

Location, location, location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Rafters Delight. It's very convenient to Tallulah Falls and Black Rock Mountain State Park. I would estimate 10 minutes to each. It's private yet near downtown Clayton. The open floor plan was ideal for our small family. After spending our days hiking, in the evenings we enjoyed dinner and games around the kitchen island. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!!

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Rafters Delight. Mr. Goff was very charming to talk to on the phone and the communications with him was excellent. It is in a nice location near downtown Clayton. We brought our dog, so the barking had a huge echo in the living room. We enjoyed the wrap around porch and we did see many animals behind the house. We were disappointed that we could not put our dog in the fenced in back yard due to lack of maintenance. Lots of spider webs around the porch too. If maintained better, it would be ideal.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed August 4-7 and enjoyed our stay so much.The house was very clean on arrival and very comfortable. We saw deer in the back yard from the back deck. We had no problem getting to the cabin as the road is paved. We will be back again, lovely home.

Exactly as expected. Private cabin in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

Great property for our group. The proximity to rafting outfitters and GA State Parks was terrific. We had fun exploring Clayton and having a quick drive to the house. The house was functional, private, quiet and comfortable. The only downfall is the sleeping arrangements are ideal for 2 couples with 2 bedrooms with attached bathrooms. Any additional sleeping is via rollout bed and sofa sleeper. It worked for us but could be a privacy challenge for larger groups.
