About Carol Lewis

My husband and I have owned a landscape company in Palm Beach County, Florida for 36 years.

Carol Lewis purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carol Lewis chose North Georgia Mountains

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!

Heaven on a hill!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of people together staying at this clean, accommodating, and gorgeous cabin. All were more than comfortable and had an absolute blast cooking, relaxing, playing music, enjoying the porch views, exploring the property, and going on nearby hikes. I can't wait to return!!

Clean, relaxing, PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on the mountain! Great WiFi signal and smart TV for our karaoke set up.... nice open house design for families.... fantastic view for sunrises and sunsets..... for us Florida people, the north Georgia July Temps were amazing. We enjoyed daily trips to Franklin, NC, lake Burton, and Dry Falls. We found the history of the property really fun to research and explore. We would recommend this property for renting!

THE PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

I did a lot of research before choosing Moutain Creek Lodge for our vacation destination. This beautiful home does not disappoint. From the moment I entered the home, I felt my stress melt away. The view of the the mountains just takes your breath away and the porch is the perfect place to start and end a day. You feel like you are totally secluded, but you are actually in close proximity to all the sites. During my family's stay we did horseback riding, whitewater rafting and hiking at Tallulah Gorge State Park. After our fun filled days, it was wonderful to be able to relax and unwind in this spectacular home. My only regret is not staying longer!

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

The mountain views from Mountain Creek Lodge are like nothing our family has ever seen. The home is truly a retreat. The home has beautiful pine work and rustic decorations through out. It is tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings and cozy beds. It is well stocked with board and card games, books and magazines to read, puzzles to play with and an ample selection of travel materials to peruse through. From its incredible history, to it's peaceful setting, its cozy interior, the kind neighbors nearby and the sweet, gentle cows that visited everyday- our family found it hard to leave. Carol and Scott, your home is an absolute gem and we thank you for sharing it with us!

Comfortable, peaceful getaway with glorious mountain views

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend at this relaxing and serene cabin lodge with several adult family members. The views are splendid and enjoyed from a large front porch with rockers and swing where we spent most of our time! The house was very comfortable, clean, and had all the accessories needed for a restful, carefree stay. Far enough from tourist areas and Clayton to enjoy the quietude of the mountains but still convenient enough for groceries, eating out, etc.. Enjoyed watching the cows, birds, and wildlife and listening to the wind in the trees on the surrounding mountainsides. Directions and suggestions from owner were clear and helpful. Imagine the lodge is beautiful during all four seasons - and we hope to get back very soon!
