Property description

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 is paved the entire way! We can accommodate up to 7 adults for $900/week. 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.

Car: Necessary

Chattooga river excitement is minutes from our door, along with Tallulah Falls, Black Rock and Moccasin Creek State Parks. There are 5 lakes in Rabun county with boat rentals available. The Foxfire museum is close by and definitely worth a visit. The Bartram trail, Appalachian trail, Chattooga River trail and many other outstanding hiking trails are nearby. Trout fishing, mountain biking, horse riding, golf ... so much to do, so little time!

 

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's a lot to do here, including hiking, boating, fishing, golfing, shopping for crafts or local produce, or browsing around charming Clayton. We're only 5 minutes from Clayton, but our location on the opposite side of the mountain from town 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!
