Photos and Description of the Clayton vacation cabin rental

Ideal getaway for relaxation and exploration! Secluded but close to all the fun!

Hike, fish, raft, ride! Shop in Clayton, Highlands and Helen. Relax in our gorgeous handcrafted home. Eat good home cooking down the street at the new Lake Burton grocery and diner!

Our porches look out over National Forest. Listen to the waterfall or sit in front of the fire. Lake Burton and golf courses are right next door as are the falls and trails of the Tallulah River. Great beautifully decorated place for couples, families, and friends to get away from it all! Everything you need is here. Secluded and private but fifteen minutes away from the shops, restaurants and groceries of downtown Clayton.

Come share our beautiful craftsman timber frame home. The soaring great room features a granite stone fireplace, stainless steel kitchen, Wifi and Bluray, a love seat by the fire, and recliners with bookcases. There are three bedrooms, a master on main, and two guest rooms upstairs, in addition to a pullout sofa in the great room. We have pillow-top mattress covers, and high quality linens. The waterfall is audible from the master suite, and the private gas fireplace is cozy in the winter.

There are two and a half baths. Outside find a wrap-a-round deck, a cozy hammock, a fire pit, a gas grill, and lots of seating. Then explore the creek and waterfall. Once at the creek, relax on the observation deck. Comfortably sleeps nine. Ideal for two families with kids or three couples.

The great room features two story windows throughout with views of National Forest. The master suite features a queen sized bed, gas fireplace, spacious closet and large custom tiled jetted bath. Upstairs find a spacious bunk room that sleeps three with room for more on air mattresses, a guest room with a queen sized bed, and a full bath. The BRAND NEW pullout sofa in the Great Room is perfect for teens. Outside grill out on the deck, or just nap in the hammock.

Specific amenities include central air and heat, ceiling fans throughout, stainless steel kitchen appliances, gas grill, outdoor seating, washer/dryer, good cellphone reception, wi-fi, a Bluray player, a large flat parking pad, and a second deck above the creek near the waterfall. Timbered steps lead down fern strewn slopes to the National Forest that adjoins the lot.

We have hosted wedding parties, book clubs, family getaways, book clubs, Little League teams, romantic getaways, even guests who have stayed a month or more!

Our guests horseback ride, whitewater raft, zipline, browse, work puzzles, cook amazing meals, boat and swim in Lake Burton, and explore the forests and waterfalls adjacent to the property. We provide a canoe, and lots of outdoor toys for little ones. They may even find crawdads in the creek! And don't forget the fly fishing next door. It is some of the best in the state.

We are popular for holiday rentals and relaxation. Our guests are escaping the heat of Florida and places closer by. We are an ideal meeting point for families split by the Georgia border. Within two hours you can reach our home from Tennessee, SC, NC, Alabama, and Atlanta.

Guests who stay a week enjoy rafting, boating, hiking, side-trips to Highlands, Helen, and Dillard, in addition to zip-lining, and horseback riding.

We hope you will join us here!
