About Carol Lewis

My husband and I have owned a landscape company in Palm Beach County, Florida for 36 years. We like to volunteer to help disaster survivors after hurricanes, earthquakes and other major events. In 1999 we formed a non-profit organization called The Eagles Wings Foundation which does this work around the world. We have a son and daughter are UF grads who are launching their own careers and love to whitewater raft on the Chatooga River near our cabin.

Carol Lewis purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carol Lewis chose Clayton

We developed the nearby Mountain Creek Estates subdivision and saved a wonderful 10-acre lot for ourselves. It borders a rushing creek and has fabulous views. All thoughts of developing our lot went out the window when we discovered this property which was being sold by Coca Cola heiress Frances (Tut) Woodruff - known locally as 'Mrs. Tut.' As a part-time realtor, I see a lot of properties, but the views from the porch of this cabin and the tranquility of the farm cannot be beat!

What makes this cabin unique

This property high up on Tut's Mountain used to be the petting zoo of Coca Cola heiress Frances Woodruff. Remnants of the bear den, eagles' lair and other artifacts still can be seen. Neighbors graze their horses and cows in our pastures. The nearby Town of Clayton has the feel of stepping into a Norman Rockwell painting of a quieter, gentler time when people had time to chat & share recipes in shops. There is still a soda fountain in the drugstore, a drive-in movie and a general store when you can buy everything from a housedress to hunting supplies.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Carol,



This is our review. We tried to put it in the web site, but it asked us to sign in, but for some reason we were not able to. Please will you put this in for us.



Thanks Richard and Jean



If you like the idea of a beautiful mountain retreat with access to fabulous, challenging and fun facilities....a place with spectacular mountain views....a gorgeous sun rise....a secluded farm....inquisitive cows and friendly horses....a large and beautiful interior of natural pine and stone...spotlessly clean....fireflies in the dark from the veranda....and humming birds in the day....then this is the place for you! We were a party of three families and nine in total....six adults and three children....all traveling from SE Florida. We wanted a place in the mountains, with things to do, but we have done this before and stayed in cabins. But this was so different. It felt like we were privileged staying in such a grand place in such a terrific location....just have a look at the photos as they don't exaggerate! We used the lodge as a base having spent two nights previously at Stone Mountain. We walked to the top of Tut's mountain (at the back of the lodge) on one morning and headed for Tallulah Gorge the following day...how spectacular and challenging with six hundred and twenty steps down and six hundred and twenty steps back !!! We zip-lined and floated down the river, toured the local town and villages and museums showing local history and crafts. The three young lads had a great time with the farm animals and the mountain climbing, and activities, all of which got them away from video games and showed them that life has other things to offer! We had a great time...very active and full of fun, and the evening drinks were well deserved. This is a lodge and location we would recommend to anyone wanting a quality vacation. And we challenge anyone to complete the 3D jigsaw of London, which we just managed in time, and left for other guests to enjoy!! A wonderful vacation!!

Such an amazing weekend!!

  • 5 of 5
Mountain Creek Lodge was gorgeous!! It was so nice going to a rental cabin and getting just what you asked for. We were staying up there for a friend's wedding at Chota Falls. In all honesty, we wished we didn't have the wedding because we wanted to hang around the cabin the entire time. It had all the amenities you could possible need, I mean it even had bodywash. We didn't have to use the AC b/c the night air was cool and crisp. We just left our windows open. The view was unbelievable, mountains everywhere. There were 3 couples, all the ladies were in the wedding party and all of our husbands got to hang out at the cabin Saturday and watch football, grill burgers, and just relax. We had the best time and I would go back in a heartbeat. There was so much privacy--thank you!

gorgeous lodge in the clouds

  • 5 of 5
The town of Clayton is small but charming. The Mountain Creek Lodge is only 10 minutes from the town center but is a steady climb up the mountainside. The property is large and offers the perfect combination of privacy and security. The view from the wrap-around balcony is magnificent and offers the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee of an evening glass of wine. The kitchen is well appointed and modern and is party of the living area so that the cook does not feel like they are missing out on the action. Just the opposite. The kitchen is large and seating at the kitchen island means everyone can be part of the meal preparations. The ceiling is high and the rooms large but there is a coziness about the place that makes it feel like home - if only for a week.. Thank you Carol for sharing you place in the clouds. I would recommend this place to anyone - without hesitation!

PERFECT FOR US!

  • 5 of 5
MOUNTAIN CREEK LODGE was the perfect spot for our retreat. Two hostesses lodged there and 13 women attended a special retreat during the day. The open spaciousness of the living/dining room was perfect for our needs and the rockers and hammock on the porch overlooking the fabulous view of the maintains was the "icing on the cake."! We've already re-booked!

Amazing cabin! So much space for a large family.

  • 5 of 5
This is a great cabin to enjoy with a large group or large family. We had a great time preparing meals in the large open kitchen and never felt cramped. The house has everything you need and super walmart is only 2 miles away in case you need anything else. The owner has the place stocked with all the necessities and plenty of fire wood if the mood strikes you. Feeding the horses was a pleasure and the days seem to breeze by when your relaxing on the wrap around porch. The house was spotless and more than we expected. We will definitely stay here in the future! Thanks Carol!
