About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6) Wl FI Available

Snuggled away in privacy, this cozy cottage is situated on 7 acres of tranquility and mountain seclusion. Fly Fish, hike, enjoy the cool mountain air and take pictures of gushing water falls on the beautiful Tallulah River.
If you are a biker, take a scenic ride to Hiawassee. If you are a hiker, everything from short hikes to the Appalachian Trail are nearby. How about white water rafting? Tubing? Antiquing!
The open floor plan features a family room with vaulted beamed ceiling which magnifies the spacious room. In addition to the TV, sofa and recliner, there is plenty of room for a queen size futon that converts to a comfortable queen bed. Just a few steps away is a sizeable bath. Enjoy the splendor of a garden tub in the mountain fresh air.

If you are tired of the galley kitchens in vacation homes, you will be pleased to prepare meals in this delightful kitchen that makes cooking a pleasure.

Enjoy the luxury of real wood floors through out including the living area, bathrooms and bedrooms. Upstairs are two bedrooms. The master has an adjoining bath with brush nickle vanity facuets and separate toliet/shower area. A new 32 inch flat screen TV is mounted on the wall in front of the queen size bed and there is a deck off the master. Please note, however, there are steps to the master and loft bedrooms. Although they are few in number, they are a little steep. If you have issues climbing steps, this may not be the cabin for you.

The guest bedroom loft area is quiet and airy with lots of windows to make a bedroom light and cheery. The prettiest views of the mountain and towering hardwoods can be seen from this room. This area is just off the master bedroom and overlooks the living area below. Twin beds are located here but one should remember this is officially a one bedroom, 2 bath cabin. Our rates reflect a one bedroom cabin. If you wish to utilize the twin beds or futon, you are welcome to do so. It works best for families.
A huge screened porch runs across the front with a swing similar to Grandma's. The outside has a fire pit and BBQ grille with table.

Just out the door are 7 acres of privacy and down the hill is the Tallulah River which borders a forest service wilderness. Although the river is approximately a mile away, you will probably want to drive to your favorite location for fishing, hiking or swimming. There are beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls and great trout fishing year round.
All of this is located minutes from Lake Burton, Tallulah River, Appalachian Trail, Tate City, Persimmon Valley, Persimmon Creek Winery, Helen, Clarksville, Lake Rabun, Lake Seed, La Prades Marina, Moccasin Creek State Park and Black Rock State Park. Don't forget the HIGHLANDS, Dillard,Franklin,and Cherokee are a short day's drive. If you like playing golf in the cool mountain air, there are numerous golf courses in the area.

Travel 85 North to 985, 441 North to Clayton, Georgia.

Travel down the hill and then up the hill about 1/4 mile to the first cabin on the left. (It is not the cabin at the bottom of the hill.) Address is 129 Trickle Creek. A sign is attached to a tree on your right indicating the Aunt Nell's Cabin. Paved Roads all the way to the cabin.
Suggestion: Copy, paste, print these directions and take them with you.

Arrival Time: 4:00 PM- before dark is preferred.

If you like elegance and relaxation, this one is for you. If short stairs to the bedroom are a challenge, it may not be your 'cup of tea.' If fly fishing and hiking is to your 'likin' ', it will be a paradise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

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, GA, USA:
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.
