Overview

About the property

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

Sixty dollars off your third night in December for new bookings! Mid December weekends available!

Perfect for two families, builder's own retreat close to the best Rabun County has to offer! Our custom timber frame home is the perfect jumping off place for hiking, Lake Burton, Clayton's shops, Black Rock Mountain State Park, Heaven's Landing airfield, Helen, Highlands, Chattooga rafting, and the best fly fishing in the state.

Great antiques shopping!

Want to get the most out of your stay? Download the Homeaway for reviews of local restaurants, where to find firewood, and a detailed guide to your home.

Listen to the waterfall below the wrap around deck, enjoy our two fireplaces PLUS an outdoor fire-pit.

There is ample room for two families, three couples, or several generations! We are a perfect meeting ground. While IN Georgia, NC, SC, and Tennessee are all just around the corner. We are exactly two hours from Atlanta, and the drive takes you through the farm valleys around Clayton, but not around any hair pin turns. The driveway is paved and easy to negotiate.

We are in the gorgeous Persimmon Valley and our home is bordered by National Forest. Enjoy seclusion AND access to great shops and restaurants! The Tallulah River and the Coleman Rivers flank us, the excellent Lake Burton grocery and Persimmon farm to table dining are down the road. This is no gated golf course community, but a private getaway. Rest in seclusion in the hammock, or hike to the creek down the hill. Then head over to the marina, or the golf course just minutes away. The Appalachian Trail and Moccasin Creek State park lie to the west, while Black Rock Mountain State Park, Clayton and Highlands lie in the other direction.

Our beautiful home is a great place to recharge. It is not an old rough cabin, but a new roomy fully equipped home. Spoil yourself with comfort; step outside for as much nature as you can handle!

You are not going to find the location and the luxury for this price anywhere else. Everything you need is here. Secluded and private but fifteen minutes away from the shops, restaurants and groceries of downtown Clayton.

Our home is a piece of handcrafted art, filled with beautiful personal touches. The great room features two story windows throughout with views of National Forest. 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 new pullout sofa in the great room. 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. Comfortably sleeps nine, but please be aware there is an additional $15 charge per night for guest eight due to the additional cleaning time, and general wear and tear. Groups of seven people or less pay the regular nightly rate. The house is too small for more than eight people.

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 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 rustic 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, family getaways, book clubs, 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!

We hope you will join us here!

Five minutes from a Lake Burton boat ramp. One mile from some of Georgia's best fly fishing along the Tallulah and Coleman Rivers. Hike into the Chattoochee National forest off the porch. Appalachian Trail is fifteen minutes to the West, and the Bartram Trail is fifteen minutes to the east. Shops of downtown Clayton feature a folk art gallery and an excellent bookstore and nearby wine shop. Find The Farmhouse at Persimmon Creek less than five miles away. In town find Grapes and Bean, Fromage (fresh made cheeses and amazing sandwiches), Universal Joint (great burgers), Rumor Hazit (New Orleans) Mama G's (Italian), and good Mexican and southern style food. The king of Southern family dining, the Dillard House is just up the road. Horseback riding is offered here as well as near the Tallulah Gorge park. Scaly Mountain snow tubing is close by as is the town of Highlands, NC. State parks near you are Black Rock Mountain, Mocassin Creek (see the nearby fish hatchery), and the Tallulah River Gorge. Get a permit to hike down to the bottom of the gorge and swim in an isolated emerald pool. Many local artisans may be found along the Soque River and north into Mountain City. The Foxfire museum of Appalachian culture is on the road to Dillard. Want to boat? Use our canoe or rent a pontoon boat from the nearby marina.

Your stay will be more enjoyable if you download the app so you have access to owner's notes on troubleshooting, finding firewood, etc. You are expected to use this app for common questions. As a stand alone property this home is best suited to guests who are willing to read the instructions on where to find the keys and other basic info without calling owner. If you are not willing to read the instructions on how to manage the house, you might be better off at a hotel. Please plan to leave the cabin the way you found it. Your courtesy in taking care of the property, and in leaving it so it may easily be cleaned is essential to the full return of your damage deposit. Private insurance not required !
