About Kathy

I love to go to Clayton, mostly for hiking in the woods, and to discover the many hidden waterfalls, or enjoying the many things to do at the Gorge........ Just being in the area is so relaxing. And of course the air always feels fresher than in the city !!

Kathy purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kathy chose Clayton

I wanted a location I could enjoy on week-ends without traveling too far; 1.5 hours from Athens, and 2 from Atlanta.

I saw the view from the deck and it 'sold' me! We face northeast to the South Carolina side, which is green and quiet.

What makes this cabin unique

Sounds like an ad, but the mountain air is so fresh and clean ! I like quiet time on the porch swing, or playing solitaire or scrabble on the deck. You can hear yourself think, away from traffic and noise ! It's a wonderful retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great get-away cabin. We left MyMountainTop feeling relaxed and refreshed.The only problem with our second visit was that it was too short!!

A real mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited north Georgia and had a wonderful time. This cabin is cozy yet roomy. The porch has rocking chairs, a swing, and, our favorite, a patio set. We enjoyed having dinners out on the porch. The view was amazing...we were lucky enough to have one night were it rained. The mist all around us was so pretty. Be sure you are comfortable driving in real mountains-lots of twists and turns to get there. The cabin doesn't have wifi, which my teens were initially disappointed about but, during the trip, nobody was upset as we spent all our days exploring the area. Found a slippery rock in the middle of nowhere, hiked to waterfalls...and, the best, Goats on a Roof. So, there was no time to be disappointed about wifi. It was fantastic to disconnect from everything and everyone! Kathy, the owner, was very attentive and responded quickly to our emails. Would certainly return! No complaints from this family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to review. I know not having wifi is hard on folks these days, as having no dishwasher, icemaker or food disposal ! But most people visit for the mountain experience, the view, the peace and quiet.... Come again in the fall, when it's Really pretty !

A view that never gets old

  • 5 of 5

Six days of being in the clouds, wonderful mountain view, comfortable place to stay, hot coffee, 55 degrees outside, porch swing and an opportunity to reconnect with my husband and my Lord Jesus Christ. If that is not enough, there are a lot of things to see and do during your stay.

We loved the cabin layout and location. The cabin was perfect for our family of four and definitely will plan on using it again when we come back. The owner was very helpful and available when needed.

Cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing time we had! We arrived on Oct 22nd and departed Oct 26th, 2016. Kathy's cabin was quaint, quiet, cozy and had amazing sunrises. The color of the sky was every changing each morning. We had a relaxing time playing scrabble, eating and enjoying a few cocktails by the fireplace. We could not have asked for more beautiful weather. Our recommendations of must sees are Anna Ruby Falls, Toccoa Falls, Black Rock Mtn, Lake Burton and the town of Helen. Thank you Kathy for your accommodations and hospitality!

Beautiful views from the "Mountain Top"!

  • 5 of 5

After a shaky start with things beyond the owner's control (water line break on the mountain and cable service out) we were able to enjoy our time at the Mountain Top home. The owner was very helpful and accessible by phone to help work out these two issues quickly. The home has a wonderful porch with beautiful views of the mountains. Plenty of room inside for 5-6 people comfortably. We only used the bottom floor bedroom for our visit. The interior was nice and spacious. This was our first time staying at a place up on a mountain and it was nice being surrounded by trees and enjoying the breezes especially from the porch swing. We took day trips and it was nice to be able to return "home" at the end of each day. To future renters...follow the owner's directions to the house and you will find it with no problems!

Owner's Response: Thank you Dave and Rebecca for visiting with us. A mountain experience in a cabin is unique and lovely. But bad weather can knock out the tv, and sometimes the waterlines are disrupted, just like home, but I'm glad they were able to get you up and running again quickly. The city doesn't have a good map of the mountain roads, which is why I give explicit directions. GPS can't find it if it isn't on the maps ! Rocking on the porch and enjoying the quiet of mountain life is well worth it ! Come back and visit again. Kathy
