Property description

There is nothing quite like Christmas in the mountains! Clayton, Georgia and other quaint little towns close by will be all decked out and many festive events will be happening!
Three night bookings will receive a $50 Visa gift card upon arrival!
Four to seven night bookings will receive a $100 Visa gift card upon arrival!

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. Beautiful lighting, decor and hand painted pictures are all around. The artist is originally from Birmingham, Alabama, now living in Fort Walton Beach, Florida and has won many prestigious awards for her work. 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 dining area completes this area providing seating for four with additional seating for four at the large island.

The living area and master bedroom suite opens onto the back balcony which extends the full width of the house through French Doors, Off the Suite is another over sized area, the master bathroom. It provides a large walk in shower, a garden tub, a marble bench area for towels between the tub and shower 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 family room. This room has a 55" LED TV with Direct TV, 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. And last but not least is excellent golfing at the Kingwood Golf Resort and Spa. Ladies check out the Spa facilities also!

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

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.
