Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

It's a perfect time to plan your 'Home away from Home' family vacation or just a quiet retreat, and we have just the place. The cabin sits beautifully nestled up on the mountain top with a breathtaking view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Lake Burton. In the evening you can enjoy captivating sunsets over the mountaintops and during the day watch the birds compete for a place on the feeders. There's fun for the entire family with activities like white water rafting, boating, fishing, water-skiing, tubing, snowboarding, hiking, rock climbing, biking and so much more. If you'd like something more relaxing try a day trip of sightseeing, or browse for antiques in the many local shops.

Our home is just 7 miles west of Clayton, GA and was built by one of its own natives. The cabin has hardwood floors throughout, with pine tongue and grove walls on all three floors. There's central air and heat, ceiling fans in all the rooms, washer and dryer for your convenience, telephone, satellite TV, and all the comforts of home. The real beauty is that from any room, on any floor you can walk out on a wrap around porch looking out on Lake Burton. Sit outside on the swing or at the table with a cup of coffee and enjoy a breathtaking view, listen to the birds chirping, or watch the breeze rushing through the woods. We have equipped the cabin with everything you could need or want so just bring clothes, toiletries, and stop by the grocery store on you way in through town.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Well I would like to start by saying the owners of Tara's tree house are outstanding, and very helpful. My family and I left Florida for the hurricanes and they made a last min booking for us and where very accommodating. It was extremely clean, the cabin its self was beautiful, its location and scenery where amazing. This place is a little slice of heaven!

Romantic, relaxing and goregous!

  • 5 of 5

I am not even sure where to begin. Our stay at Tara's Treehouse was absolutely amazing. Everything about it was perfect. Communication with Brenda & Gordon was outstanding. I made our reservation online, but from the moment I did I received emails with directions, key codes, etc. When we arrived the cabin was so clean we were very impressed as some of the other properties we have booked have left a lot to be desired. My husband and I and my in laws had the most amazing time here. The view we had of the lake was what dreams are made of. The cabin was perfectly outfitted, just about everything you would need to enjoy your stay was provided. The city of Clayton was just a short drive to stock up on groceries and we even made a stop at Tiger Mountain Vineyard for a few bottles to enjoy on the huge porch complete with rockers.

This was our first time visiting the North Georgia mountains and staying here was so relaxing it certainly won't be our last. We decided to stay here as our daughter was getting married across the bridge at the Waterfall Club and I am so thankful we did. It was romantic, relaxing, and gorgeous! Thanks Gordon & Brenda!

Pretty but...

  • 3 of 5

Tara's Treehouse had beautiful views. They were breath taking! The house was acomidating, except that the beds were not made, and we had to drive around Clayton before leaving to take the garbage to the dump! Our check in time was at 4pm, we arrived around 4:30pm and the cleaning lady was still there. I guess she called the owners and was irritated that we showed up when she was still there because we got a call at 8:30pm from the owners about the issue. It was not a plesent way to start our relaxing weekend away.

As mentioned before, the views were wonderful, but will probably find another place to stay next time we are in Clayton.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the views, it is one of the most beautiful in the area. We do try hard to make certain that everything is above expectation for our guests. Over the last 15 years we have left the sheets on top of the bed to make certain that our guests knew they were sanitized but your recommendation will now move us to have the beds made. Unfortunately the area does not have trash pick up and guest do have to take the bag of garbage they have accumulated, for that we apologize but can't rectify. The call you received from my husband was definitely not from an angry housekeeper but for an apology that she had to leave towels in the dryer due to the previous tenants leaving late.

Peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I simply loved the cabin, the view, the porch, the amenities, the local opportunities, etc. It was the perfect spot for our family gathering where we all came from separate areas in Georgia and needed a perfect get-away vacation spot. It is the perfect combination of relaxation with sports fun just a few miles away. The proximity to the rafting was perfect. Local restaurants are very close and antique shopping is everywhere. The cabin itself is well appointed, very clean, and beautifully designed for group enjoyment. The driveway is a bit daunting but it's fine. Owners were terrific to work with and overall it is a terrific find. Can't wait to return and I strongly recommend it for family vacations, girl (or guy) getaways or quiet romantic weekends away from 'regular life'.
