Perched near the peak of Screamer Mountain, this Charming Cabin is perfect for a family or small group with no more than 4-5 adults or family/group of up to 6 that includes children who would be comfortable sleeping together on the sleeper sofa in the loft. On the main level you will find the kitchen, living area with seating for four, gas log fireplace and TV, bedroom with two twin beds, full bath with tub/shower, and laundry closet. Sliding glass doors in the living area and main level bedroom offer mountain views and access to the large screened porch where you can relax on the porch swing, rocking chairs (2), and enjoy your meals at the table with seating for four.

Upstairs is a loft with a sleeper sofa, bedroom with queen-sized bed, and full private bathroom (large shower, no tub). A small uncovered balcony is accessed from the loft. The upper level areas also offer mountain views. There is a large deck that wraps around the cabin from the front door to the screened porch.

Although not wheelchair accessible, with only two steps up from the paved driveway to the main level and a main level bedroom/bathroom, visitors with some mobility impairment have enjoyed staying at our cabin.

The road leading to the cabin is paved the entire way, the driveway is fairly level and paved as well. There is ample parking for 2-3 cars and an area where a small boat or jet skis may be parked during your stay.

About Denise Eads

Owner lives and works in Athens, GA area.

Denise Eads purchased this Cabin in 2010

Why Denise Eads chose Clayton

The setting on the mountain affords wonderful views, seaonal views of the town of Clayton.. The cabin is very convenient to town, restaurants, activities, and a wonderful Ingles grocery store. We have enjoyed having the cabin for a few years now, it is a great place to just relax and enjoy the sounds of nature from the screened porch, gather to get re-connected with friends and family, and a great home base from which to explore other areas of N. GA, or venture into NC or SC. We have enjoyed whitewater rafting, hiking, shopping, sight seeing, boating on Lake Rabun (Lake Burton is also a close option for boating), local restaurants, wineries.

What makes this Cabin unique

The screened porch is everyone's favorite! It is our favorite place to start the day and end the day. The setting among trees gives you the feel of being in a big tree house. A friend commented 'this is great, we are sitting in the trees looking down on the squirrels!' The location has the feel of being "away from it all" with the convenience of being 10 minutes or less from the town of Clayton.

                                                                  LindaNorth Port, Florida - United States

                                                                  This is the 3rd year that a friend and I have scheduled a "girls getaway" at this lovely mountain home - Denise has a great place and has everything in place for her guests. We enjoyed reading and artistic (friend is an artist) time as well as morning walks on "Screamer" Drive. Other activities in the area that we had time for included hiking, visiting waterfalls and antique shops, horseback riding (many more that we - unfortunately - didn't have the time to include!) We were just a bit earlier this year, so missed the canoe opportunities on Burton Lake that we enjoyed on previous visits - maybe next year!!

                                                                  Thanks, Denise, for once again sharing your beautiful home!!!!

The cabin is well furnished, very cozy and was ideal for us and our two dogs. It is very convenient to shopping and downtown Clayton, Georgia. The cabin’s owner, Denise, is delightful. We recommend this place highly!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

The kitchen was stocked with all of the essentials so that we could prepare our meals. The back deck was the perfect spot for both evening sunset watching and morning devotion time! And the location was perfect - close to many hiking trails and vineyards and great restaurants in downtown Clayton.

                                                                  Perfect getaway
