About Carol Lewis
My husband and I have owned a landscape company in Palm Beach County, Florida for 36 years.
Carol Lewis purchased this House 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 building on our lot went out the window when we discovered this property which was being sold by Coca Cola heiress Frances 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 House unique
This property high up on Tut's Mountain was formerly 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 still is a soda fountain in the drugstore, a drive-in movie theater and a general store where you can buy everything from a house dress to hunting supplies.

Such an amazing weekend!!
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!
We absolutely loved our stay there! It was a great place to relax and unwind. My wife especially loved the cows!:)
Thanks for a great stay!
Perfect Place to Get Away!!!
This was our third year in a row staying here. The place simply could not be more perfect! The location is about 10 minutes from town, yet far enough away that you can't hear any traffic or man-made noises. The cabin itself is absolutely beautiful and the view is breathtaking. When I'm in the area, I refuse to stay anywhere else. If this place is not available, I'll pick a different time to go or stay home.
Carol was very accommodating. We loved the cabin: it's spacious with a gorgeous view of the mountains! The resident cows added some fun interest for us city folk.
As usual: spectacular !
We have chosen MCL over the years for reason: value. Quiet and spacious and well appointed.
Thank you CAROL....we will be back
Loved every minute!
This cabin was so beautiful! The pictures make it look amazing and still don’t do it justice. I went there with my husband, mother, and nieces to celebrate my mother’s birthday with a little rest and relaxation. The adults all loved the peace and quiet with the beautiful scenery while the kids (age from 9-13) loved their own space in the loft and exploring outside. I honestly have no complaints. This cabin is secluded, beautiful, and worth the trip! I could definitely imagine coming back again and again.
