About the Property

Townhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (sleeps 7 adults)

The jaw dropping view from all 3 levels of -Halfway to Heaven- is one of the very best in Northeast Georgia. At 3,000' in elevation, you can see the southern end of the Blue Ridge as you look out over the Chattahoochee National Forest. Our home is very comfortable, quiet, and secluded, but only minutes from Clayton's many fine restaurants, an Ingle's supermarket, and a multitude of outdoor activities including rafting, hiking, golf, and much more. The drive up the mountain is paved the entire way. We can accommodate up to 7 adults. With over 2,000 sq. ft. of living space, you'll have plenty of room to relax!

Our home is non-smoking. You must be 25 or older to rent, loud parties please look elsewhere. Pets are accepted only after approval. In general, we allow house-trained, inside dogs that do not bark excessively. There is a $50 non refundable pet fee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: Jason and Joanne Carter, Jacksonville, FL

Why the Owner Chose Screamer Mountain (Clayton, GA, USA):
We love Rabun county and the mountains of Northeast Georgia!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our mountaintop location is quiet and serene, with breathtaking views of the southern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are many outdoor activities to do here, including hiking, boating, fishing, biking, and golfing. If shopping is what you are looking for, look no further. Downtown Clayton has plenty of boutiques to browse through and if you are looking for antiques, Butler Galleries has all that and more! We are only 5 minutes from Downtown Clayton, but our townhouse is located on the opposite side of the mountain from town, and provides you with a view of the Chattahoochee National Forest that is mostly devoid of human presence. There is no better way to top off an adventure filled day than to enjoy a glass of locally grown wine from one of the decks at Halfway to Heaven!
