Kingwood Golf Club & Resort House Rental Photos and Description

Three bedrooms plus loft; 2 1/2 baths. MBR on main floor. Sleeps 7. 2850 sq

Veteran's Day weekend available!! Enjoy a long weekend in the mountains. A 2 BR condo nearby costs much more than our 2850 square footIf home! Peak fall colors in the North Georgia mountains continue through mid November! Enjoy hiking and the panoramic view from our Mountain Paradise!!

Golfing is open again to the public at Kingwood Golf and Country Club also!

The AMAZING TALLULAH GORGE WHITEWATER RELEASES occur the first three weekends in November. Only the second and third weekends remain available, including Veteran's Day weekend!! Don't miss this opportunity for a long weekend away!! These are incredible events as you can watch kayakers from all over the world come traverse the massive falls as the dam releases occur! It is a short hike on either side of the Gorge to see these daredevils as they are challenged by the rushing falls!! Search online for pictures and videos and you will definitely want to be a part of the spectators!!

Rates have been lowered to help offset the service charge that has been recently added to all properties with Homeaway and VRBO plus to make vacation time for our guests more affordable!

The panoramic view from our beautiful, spacious home is just the beginning. Hiking, trout fishing, ziplining, whitewater rafting, renting a pontoon boat and cruising around Lake Burton or Lake Rabun with the mountains rising around you, horseback riding,and family style dining at The Dillard House are just a few of the many things to do within an easy driving distance of our Mountain Paradise.

One special and unique attraction an hour's drive away is The Great Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City, N.C. Adults and children will step back in time and ride either a steam or diesel powered train through the mountains!! During the month of October the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad has a special event called The Peanut's Pumpkin Patch ride. Halloween weekend the event offered is The Masquerade Train with dinner on the train. During the months of November and December is The Polar Express Train!! Such fun in the mountains for families and friends! Check it out at

Mountain Paradise is centrally located to Helen, Ga (30 miles away), Highlands, North Carolina (24 miles away) and Cherokee, North Carolina (54 miles away.) Here you can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the mountains without the tourist traffic, and still be able to visit your favorite spots .

If you have a wedding event to attend, you will love staying at Mountain Paradise. Many weddings take place at Kingwood Country Club, Chattooga Belle Farms (11 miles away), and Tiger Winery (6 miles away). Enjoy a spacious home while attending these events!

Mountain Paradise is located at the highest point of Kingwood Country Club and Resort. As you make your last turn to the property and begin your climb you will be overwhelmed with awe at the magnificence of how far you can see in every direction when you reach the top. The sheer beauty is indescribable. National Forests surround you. You will feel like you have entered a world all to yourself and your family!

The front porch beckons you with rockers looking out across the beautiful mountains!

Our home was built with so many extra touches and thoughts put into providing a setting for relaxing in spacious rooms looking out over breathtaking views. The gourmet kitchen creates a focal point for preparing, serving and enjoying your meals with family or friends.The large living area has comfortable seating with all reclining furniture. To make the setting even cozier in the winter there is a Buck propane gas stove that looks and feels like a natural wood burning stove.

The living area and master bedroom suite opens onto the back balcony which extends the full width of the house through French Doors from each area. Off the Master Bedroom is another over sized area, the master bathroom. It provides a large walk in shower with seat, a garden tub, and a double sink in a long counter area.

Overlooking the great room is a loft with a daybed, work surface and comfortable desk chair. Also provided is a monitor and printer. The view from the loft is breath taking also.

At the foot of the stairs coming down from the loft is a large half bath.

There is a staircase to the ground floor leading into the large family room. This room has a 55" LED TV with ROKU, stereo and DVD player. A stone, gas fireplace faces the large area for warmth in the cool months. A Foosball table is provided for further entertainment. A movie library is available. There are 2 bedrooms on this level with one large full bath. In addition there is a porch off the lower level for easy access from the driveway.

A final winner is a bench- swing hanging separate from the house for really relaxing and getting away from everything and everybody!

To just stay here is a dream but there are many additional activities that we have enjoyed through the years. Hiking to waterfalls is a must, 2 of which are in the Kingwood property and 120 more within a 50 mile radius. Visiting Tallulah Gorge and hiking down the Gorge and across the swinging bridge is easy and delightful. Seven wineries are close by and so much fun to go taste test and pick your favorites. We have enjoyed Habersham, Twelve Spies, Cane Creek, Tiger, Persimmon Creek, Three Sisters and Sautee Nacoochee.

Zip lining is 12 miles away and a must for those with a little adventure in their bones! White water rafting is available 3 miles away and of course fly fishing is very popular in this part of North Georgia.

Of all the groups that have stayed in this area and our home, some of the most enthusiastic are those who have come for couples' retreats, ministry retreats, women's retreats, and families with children who love the outdoors. We provide a beautiful home and God provides the magnificent setting!

"I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;

From whence shall my help come?

My help comes from the Lord,

Who made heaven and earth."

Psalm 121: 1-2

About Ed & Rhonda

Mountain Paradise is a custom designed family home. Much thought and prayer went into the careful design and creation of this home. Rest assured that the engineer/owner who designed this home went way beyond the standard safety features of most mountain homes and the quality of all products used far exceed what most builders put into their homes. It was truly built with love and inspiration.

Ed & Rhonda purchased this house in 2005

Why Ed & Rhonda chose Clayton

The property was picked based on the beauty of the landscaping and golf course, the club house and restaurant. and especially the breath taking view of many mountain ranges and National forests seen right from our back deck and front porch. Our home was built to be inspiring to anyone who enters it's doors!

What makes this house unique

Anyone who has ever stayed in this home have felt the peace and tranquility surrounding it. That alone is worth a visit!

Amazing View! Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to spend an entire month in Ed and Rhonda's beautiful mountain home! Gorgeous views from EVERY window. I love to cook and found the space in the kitchen, all the equipment, the wonderful gas stove, and the expansive prep areas to be like home! The cabin's furnishings were cozy and comfortable and everything was clean! There is so much to do in the Clayton area. Zip lining, white water rafting, tubing The Hooch in Helen, golf all around you, shopping in Highlands, NC., hiking, fishing, and wine tasting. We loved lunch at Chatooga Belle Farm & Vineyard, Glen-Ella Springs Inn, BBQ at Oinkers and the Wicked Pig, and The Attic in Clarkesville after golf at Apple Mountain Golf Club. Lot's of cute shops in downtown Clayton. We were welcomed at Clayton Baptist Church downtown -even had members there invite us to lunch! Just can't say enough about Ed & Rhond's mountain cabin and the Clayton area! Thank you, Ed and Rhonda.

Beautiful mountain top home with amazing views and interior loft design!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience as the location was conveniently located near Clayton and all of our favorite activities such as rafting, hiking and zip lining with our two kids. I highly recommend it and we hope to go back soon. The owners are great as well, very communicative and conscientious!

Awesome Mountain View

  • 3 of 5

Perfect location to get away to recharge. The home is well equipped, clean and comfortable. Just a minor issue, if you are not bothered by sharing the space with bugs, scorpions and spiders, dead and alive inside the home, well welcome to the mountains. It was reported to the owners. Hopefully, the next visitor won't need to share their space with the bugs.

An awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

A spacious and comfortable cabin with an awesome mountain view. We have stayed in several mountain cabins over the years but this cabin was our favorite. We had plenty of room for our two families to watch television on the bottom floor or sit and read on the main floor and couldn't get over the magnificent view of the mountains and watching the hummingbirds feed every day. Mountain Paradise is an excellent place to stay and hope we get to go back again.

Springbreak Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ed and Rhonda's home. It has the most amazing views, and is a welcome respite after a day of hiking. Our two kids loved the foosball table, and we loved the spaciousness of the place-so we didn't have to hear all of their foosball games. The house is clean and well equipped, and close to Clayton for all meals and essential items. I would mention that since the house is in the mountains with amazing views, you need to keep in mind that you will have to drive up a steep incline to get to the house.

Helen, Georgia, a German inspired town 33 miles away. On the way to Helen, GA, you will go through Clarksville, GA, with a town square, quaint stores, great restaurants and a local small town theater, which is worth the drive to enjoy.

The Dillard House: When you visit the Dillard House Restaurant you might expect just a meal, but it's a true Southern culinary event that awaits you. Their menus consist of generous portions of homemade Southern dishes from recipes handed down over the years from Dillard House chefs and generations of Dillard family members. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served "family-style" every day of the year.

Highlands, North Carolina and Cashiers are 24 miles away.

The Tallulah Gorge is a gorge that is formed by the Tallulah River cutting through the Tallulah Dome rock formation. The gorge is approximately 2 miles (3 km) long and features rocky cliffs up to 1,000 feet (300 m) high. Through it, a series of falls known as Tallulah Falls drop a total of 150 meters (490 ft) in one mile (1.6 km). Tallulah Falls is actually composed of six separate falls: l'Eau d'Or 46 ft (14 m), Tempesta 76 ft (23 m), Hurricane the tallest at 96 feet (29 m), Oceana 50 ft (15 m), the smooth "sliding rock" at Bridal Veil 17 ft (5.2 m) and Lovers Leap 16 ft (4.9 m). The Tallulah Gorge is located next to the town of Tallulah Falls, Georgia. Tallulah Gorge State Park protects much of the gorge and its waterfalls. The gorge is considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia.
