The second (downstairs) floor has a third master King bedroom and separate living room / kitchen to accommodate an additional 2 people that can be added for a nominal charge. To include the second floor in your Quote please fill in more than 4 people in your request to trigger the automated correct $. Example if you have 4 people but desire the second floor put in 5. If you actually have 5 or 6 people put that in.

Other things to know:

I strive for transparency on the cost which includes Rental, Cleaning Fee, VRBO's service fee (controlled by VRBO and goes directly to them), Second Floor fee, if desired, and taxes. There is also a separate refundable damage deposit. Please review these in the Quote and feel free to ask any questions.

Please see the Rates Section for full explanation of all charges, including 3.5% credit card fee if you choose that payment route. To avoid this fee please "email the owner" to request a Quote upfront and allow me to control the payment can pay free via VRBO echeck or a manual check. If you "request a booking" VRBO will force you down a credit card route that will incur this fee (taken out of your deposit on the back-end).

Clayton is a charming town in northeast Georgia - visit the shops and restaurants in the historical Main Street. Yet it also has the modern conveniences of major retailers such as Ingles (grocery), Wal-Mart and The Home Depot. It is 2 miles south of Black Rock Mountain state park; close to Lake Burton and Lake Rabun. It is also close to Tullulah Falls, Dillard, Sky Valley (NC), Dillsboro, Hiawassee, and Highlands and Asheville (NC).

I've posted Reviews on the local restaurants and amenities; please see a separate link to access these!

We love it there and love sharing it!

About Beth Taylor

Atlantans! One a corporate CPA and the other a video producer.

Beth Taylor purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Beth Taylor chose North Georgia Mountains

Clayton is big enough to stay awhile and stay entertained...but small enough to dial down and relax. Being 90 minutes from Atlanta was a criteria; easy weekend get-away.

What makes this cabin unique

We're secluded on the side of a mountain under a canopy of trees, yet 2 minutes from downtown or the grocery store.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your cabin for the weekend while we were here for the Warrior Dash. Your cabin is beautiful, relaxing and very clean. It was the perfect retreat for 3 couples. Our only suggestion would be to label the light switches :).

Thank you again!

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin in a quiet location. Tallulah Falls is nearby and I highly recommend it. It is a very strenuous hike but worth it. Get there early as they only issue 100 permits a day to hike the whole trail. You can hike some trails without a permit . Black Rock Moutain has a few decent hikes as well. The main reason we visited was for rafting the Chatatooga and it didn't disappoint. Southeastern Expeditions did an awesome job getting us down the river safely! (I recommend Andys Market for meat and groceries if needed. Great local supermarket with friendly, helpful staff.)

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

It's an awesome cabin. Really nice and perfect for 6 people. There are a couple things to consider. One, the road leading to the cabin is gravel and not the best of shape. If we had taken a car with low ground clearance, I am not sure we would have made the hill. My 4x4 Ram did fine, as did the Highlander, but an MG...probably not so much. And the road is narrow. Second is the water. It's on a well system and if everyone needs a shower in a short period of time, you'll likely not have much water pressure. Hot water, yes...but no pressure. The owner was very helpful in dealing with our water issue. That said, if I was traveling back to Clayton again, I would rent this cabin again in a blink. Oh...and the Rusty Bike Cafe is the bomb for breakfast.

The cabin was delightful. It was quite comfortable and very well equipped. My siblings, their spouses and I take a trip together every Spring. We were so surprised when we arrived and saw what a find we had made. Beth was very accommodating . She was accessible the whole time we were there. We would certainly go again!

Peaceful getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Very neat, comfortable place. Very roomy with everything that is needed for a get away weekend provided. Great communication with the owner. Layout is great for multiple couples or large families to have privacy and yet be together to chat, play games, cards, eat any chosen meals, etc. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

We ate lunch at Fromage and Universal Joint . While having a fine dining experience at The Farm Table at Persimmon Creek.

Valentine Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This makes the second year for our group of three couples to stay at this "Cozy Cabin" in Clayton. We find that the cabin is great for all of us. Each couple had their own king suite and bath. For those in our 55 plus group with mobility issues, two of the suites are on the entry level. The cabin is well appointed with all amenities that you could wish for. We loved watching the sunrise over the mountains and the sunsets streaming into the cabin. We all hated to leave. We had breakfast on Monday morning at the Clayton Café, awesome, and lunch in Maggie Valley. The cabin is close to North Carolina allowing for a day trip where we saw elk and wild turkeys. On Valentine morning, we had breakfast at the Rusty Bike Café in Clayton, which is awesome as well. We are looking forward to a return visit when we can stay longer. "The Wilkes County Ramblers"

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $85
Additional Guest Fee $20 per person per night
Damage Deposit $200

Please note we have tiered pricing for the main floor (for 4 people) and then a nominal upcharge to include the downstairs second floor fully furnished living space with master bedroom (king), bathroom, living/dining, kitchen, bonus room and expansive walk-out deck. Caution: Automatic Quote from vrbo requires you to enter the right # of people to get an accurate Quote. If you have 4 people but desire to include the second floor please enter 5. If you have 5-6 people and enter those numbers the Quote will be accurate and include the second floor. Additionally, please be advised that we pass along the credit card fee if you choose to pay this way; it will be deducted from your deposit at the end. To avoid this fee it is better to NOT do the "book it now" process which takes you down a mandated credit card route. It is better to "email the owner" to request a Quote from me and allow me to control the VRBO payment process once you decide to proceed. That way you can opt for the free echeck using vrbo; or a manual check via the mail if you prefer. If you have any questions just call or email me and I am happy to help! Thank you.

Owner's Cancellation Policy
