Why Joe Bartenfeld chose Scaly Mountain

NEW WINTER AND SPRING PRICING! We love the serenity and beauty of this location. We take great pride in its cleaniness. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY PETS! I t is tastfully decorated.

We back up to the National Forest and enjoy hiking down the trail which connects to the Bartram trail at the base of Scaly Mountain. It is a wonderful place to sit back and relax.

What makes this house unique

We are at the end of the road, it is quiet. It has a camping area for children. It has an outdoor fire-pit. Swing set for Children. The cabin is totally supplied and we are centrally located to Clayton, Ga. and Franklin N.C. and Highlands is just 9 miles away. We DO NOT ACCEPT PETS! We will take infants but prefer children over four years of age.

The spring brings the flowering shrubs and plants. The fall bring the beautiful foliage change and the mountains are painted in breathtaking aray of colors. The winters open the canopy for wonderful distant views.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a dream stay for our family. From the moment we booked, Joe was was available to answer all questions. After arriving ,you will find just about everything for your stay. We stopped at the Dollar General which was just a few minutes drive down the road and picked up some food , paper plates and rented some movies at the redbox. The location is perfect, you will find some great cafe's , waterfalls and shopping opportunities all within a short drive. Joe was such a wonderful host, and we greatly appreciated his insight into the area and recommendations on places to visit. Great care was taken in providing us with a wonderful stay and that meant so much. Our only complaint was that we had to leave. My kids are already begging to return for another stay.

This cabin was an amazing place to stay for a relaxing week in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the accommodations at this cabin. It has everything you need and then some. Wood for the fireplace was provided, and electric blankets on each bed was wonderful. It is very clean, beautifully decorated, and makes you feel like home. It is very close to many local cities and attractions such as Dillard, GA shopping and eating, Tallulah Gorge State Park, and waterfalls in Highlands, NC. There is also a very close waterfall in Sky Valley, GA. Great lodging at a convenient spot. You will love it!

True Abundance

  • 5 of 5

Squeaky clean and spacious home. Any appliance you can think of including an espresso machine. Plenty of top of the Lind towels, sheets and blankets. Fireplace to keep you warm, large living room to keep you entertained and friendly hosts who will give you their jackets to keep you warm. Thank you so much for the warm treatment!

Great mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all. Everything in the house makes you feel welcomed. The pictures of the inside do not do it justice. Just as advertised, they provide everything but your food. Beds were extremley comfortable and the area around the home is very quiet and peaceful.

Highlands is very close as well as any day hikes you may desire. Joe was very easy to work with. We hope to come again soon.
