About the owner: Michael and Carol Williams, reside in Peachtree City, Georgia. In spite of our many travels through out the world, one of our favorite areas is the Northeast Mountains of North Georgia. Our cabin is located .5 mile from the Tallulah River and is truly one of the most beautiful locations we have ever visited.
Aunt Nell's cabin is named after my Aunt Nell and it houses some of her most treasured furniture. One is surrounded by Mother Nature and beauty there and it is the place to go to get out of the 'Rat Race' of a busy workig enviroment.
Mike is retired now and I am still flying as a flight attendant for Delta.
Why the Owner Chose Clayton: We Purchased Aunt Nell's Cabin for it's serene atmosphere and for it's cool crisp nights during the summer heat. Fall is a sea of crystal warm colors and spring sports the blooms of mountain laurel hovering over the rush of water falls on the river. The ride along the River displaying its clear water of trout and waterfalls is a must.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Aunt Nell's Cabin sits on 7 areas whereas you can hike, fly fish or simply relax on the deck with your favorite book. The location is perfect for day trips to other areas without having to rent other hotel rooms. It's cozy decor gives you the sense of home if you wish to stay home and enjoy TV or make your favorite meal. There are two bath rooms. One on the upper deck and one on the lower level for your conovenience. Both are full baths and one has a lovely garden tub to pamper yourelf after a full day of hiking.
