Screamer Mountain Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 7 adults)

The jaw dropping view from all 3 levels of -Halfway to Heaven- is one of the very best in Northeast Georgia. At 3,000' in elevation, you can see the southern end of the Blue Ridge as you look out over the Chattahoochee National Forest. Our home is very comfortable, quiet, and secluded, but only minutes from Clayton's many fine restaurants, an Ingle's supermarket, and a multitude of outdoor activities including rafting, hiking, golf, and much more. The drive up is paved the entire way! We can accommodate up to 7 adults. With over 2,000 sq. ft. of living space, you'll have plenty of room to relax!

Our home is non-smoking. You must be 25 or older to rent, loud parties please look elsewhere. Pets are accepted only after approval. In general, we allow house-trained, inside dogs that do not bark excessively. There is a $50 non refundable pet fee.

About Jason Carter

Jason and Joanne Carter, Jacksonville, FL

Jason Carter purchased this townhome in 2016

Why Jason Carter chose Clayton

We love Rabun county and the mountains of Northeast Georgia!

What makes this townhome unique

Our mountaintop location is quiet and serene, with breathtaking views of the southern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

There's a lot to do here, including hiking, boating, fishing, golfing, shopping for crafts or local produce, or browsing around charming Clayton. We're only 5 minutes from Clayton, but our location on the opposite side of the mountain from town provides you with a view of the Chattahoochee National Forest that is mostly devoid of human presence. There is no better way to top off an adventure filled day than to enjoy a glass of locally grown wine from one of the decks at Halfway to Heaven!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is beautiful. The views were amazing and the new owners have done several upgrades to the place. They were very nice and responsive. Went on several hikes and saw some amazing waterfalls. The restaurants were amazing.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Halfway To Heaven for a week three times, and the four of us agree it is the best place in Rabun County to stay! The home is very well kept,with everything you need for an extended stay! We have a trip to Ingles before the drive up the day we arrive and could stay the entire week on the items the 4 of us get,but we venture out on the second day!! We do this each time we go.We all enjoy Rabun County and everything it has to offer. The great covered porch and decks have the most beautiful views of sunrises and mountains you will find in North Georgia.(Our ages range from 48 to 69)

Views are indeed awesome!

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse is very nice - at the top of Screamer Mountain. The area is quiet and peaceful. First ride up there (thankfully on all paved roads) was challenging because we didn't know the way, although described very well by Jason. On the way down we were surprised how short and easy it really was! The kitchen was the best stocked of any of the many rentals we have been in. The master room bed was most comfortable.

The cell service faded in and out so we were grateful that the house phone was available for our use locally and long distance.

Of the 3 televisions, only the one in the living room was working and it could not be muted or the sound lowered to a tolerable level. Jason was called but nothing was done about fixing the TVs. One afternoon, there was a problem with very low water pressure and after calling the 3 numbers posted on the refrigerator to contact in such a case and getting no response, Jason was called. He said he would look into it and call us back. By the middle of the night the water was restored and we had no further problems; however, we did not get a call back from Jason which would have been appreciated.

All in all, it is a great place to stay. Be sure to eat at Mama G's and drive up to Highlands, NC.

beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. The views are beautiful and the home is well stocked with just about anything you could need. We ate dinner at home most nights and the kitchen was well equipped, including a charcoal grill if you want to barbecue. Also there's wifi and access to Netflix, etc for relaxing at night. The master bedroom is wonderful with a whirlpool style tub. The downstairs has two bedrooms so our son and daughter could each have their own room as well

I stayed at this location 2 years ago and since then a new owner has taken over. prior to my stay I was worried that the new owner would not be as good as the previous. However, my fears were unfounded. The new owner was very responsive to emails and text messages, generally responding within minutes. I really have no complaints about my stay

Wonderful vaction

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Halfway to Heaven. The views were stunning, the hummingbirds a delight. The home was very nice and well appointed. The owners were responsive and helpful. We particularly appreciated the notebook containing a lot of information about the surrounding area. I highly recommend Halfway to Heaven and hope to return in the near future.
