About Kathy

I love to go to Clayton, mostly for hiking in the woods, and to discover the many hidden waterfalls, or enjoying the many things to do at the Gorge........ Just being in the area is so relaxing. And of course the air always feels fresher than in the city !!

Why Kathy chose Screamer Mountain

I wanted a location I could enjoy on week-ends without traveling too far; 1.5 hours from Athens, and 2 from Atlanta.

I saw the view from the deck and it 'sold' me! We face northeast to the South Carolina side, which is green and quiet.

What makes this cabin unique

Sounds like an ad, but the mountain air is so fresh and clean ! I like quiet time on the porch swing, or playing solitaire or scrabble on the deck. You can hear yourself think, away from traffic and noise ! It's a wonderful retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great get-away cabin. We left MyMountainTop feeling relaxed and refreshed.The only problem with our second visit was that it was too short!!

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at "My Mountain Top." The home is cozy and the view is breathtaking! We enjoyed our dinners on the patio and our mornings sitting in the rocking chair drinking coffee. The beds are very comfortable and everything was just as described. We visited Tallulah Gorge State Park and Black Rock Mountain State Park. Both were only a short drive away. This was a perfect retreat for our family. It was so nice to get away from our busy everyday life for a bit. Thank you Kathy for sharing your home with us!

Lovely little cabin with a wonderful view! We really enjoyed sitting on the porch in rocking chairs, drinking coffee, reading, and hearing the birds sing. We made good use of the grill. And the beds were comfortable, too. A relaxing stay! Thank you, Kathy!

A real mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited north Georgia and had a wonderful time. This cabin is cozy yet roomy. The porch has rocking chairs, a swing, and, our favorite, a patio set. We enjoyed having dinners out on the porch. The view was amazing...we were lucky enough to have one night were it rained. The mist all around us was so pretty. Be sure you are comfortable driving in real mountains-lots of twists and turns to get there. The cabin doesn't have wifi, which my teens were initially disappointed about but, during the trip, nobody was upset as we spent all our days exploring the area. Found a slippery rock in the middle of nowhere, hiked to waterfalls...and, the best, Goats on a Roof. So, there was no time to be disappointed about wifi. It was fantastic to disconnect from everything and everyone! Kathy, the owner, was very attentive and responded quickly to our emails. Would certainly return! No complaints from this family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to review. I know not having wifi is hard on folks these days, as having no dishwasher, icemaker or food disposal ! But most people visit for the mountain experience, the view, the peace and quiet.... Come again in the fall, when it's Really pretty !

A view that never gets old

  • 5 of 5

Six days of being in the clouds, wonderful mountain view, comfortable place to stay, hot coffee, 55 degrees outside, porch swing and an opportunity to reconnect with my husband and my Lord Jesus Christ. If that is not enough, there are a lot of things to see and do during your stay.
