Listen to the waterfall below the wrap around deck, enjoy our two fireplaces PLUS an outdoor fire-pit.
There is ample room for two families, three couples, or several generations! We are a perfect meeting ground. While IN Georgia, NC, SC, and Tennessee are all just around the corner. We are exactly two hours from Atlanta, and the drive takes you through the farm valleys around Clayton, but not around any hair pin turns. The driveway is paved and easy to negotiate.
We are in the gorgeous Persimmon Valley and our home is bordered by National Forest. Enjoy seclusion AND access to great shops and restaurants! The Tallulah River and the Coleman Rivers flank us, the excellent Lake Burton grocery and Persimmon farm to table dining are down the road. This is no gated golf course community, but a private getaway. Rest in seclusion in the hammock, or hike to the creek down the hill. Then head over to the marina, or the golf course just minutes away. Swim in Lake Burton or in the emerald pools of Tallulah Gorge.
The Appalachian Trail and Moccasin Creek State park lie to the west, while Black Rock Mountain State Park, Clayton and Highlands lie in the other direction.
Our beautiful home is a great place to recharge. It is not an old rough cabin, but a new roomy fully equipped home. Spoil yourself with comfort; step outside for as much nature as you can handle!
You are not going to find the location and the luxury for this price anywhere else. Everything you need is here. Secluded and private but fifteen minutes away from the shops, restaurants and groceries of downtown Clayton.
Our home is a piece of handcrafted art, filled with beautiful personal touches. The great room features two story windows throughout with views of National Forest. The soaring great room features a granite stone fireplace, stainless steel kitchen, Wifi and Bluray, a love seat by the fire, and recliners with bookcases. There are three bedrooms, a master on main, and two guest rooms upstairs, in addition to a new pullout sofa in the great room. The waterfall is audible from the master suite, and the private gas fireplace is cozy in the winter.
There are two and a half baths. Outside find a wrap-a-round deck, a cozy hammock, a fire pit, a gas grill, and lots of seating. Then explore the creek and waterfall. Comfortably sleeps nine, but please be aware there is an additional $15 charge per night for guest eight and nine due to the additional cleaning time, and general wear and tear. Groups of seven people or less pay the regular nightly rate. The house is too small for more than eight adults or nine adults and children.
The master suite features a queen sized bed, gas fireplace, spacious closet and large custom tiled jetted bath. Upstairs find a spacious bunk room that sleeps three with room for more on air mattresses, a guest room with a queen sized bed, and a full bath. The pullout sofa in the Great Room is perfect for teens. Outside grill out on the deck, or just nap in the hammock.
Specific amenities include central air and heat, ceiling fans throughout, stainless steel kitchen appliances, gas grill, outdoor seating, washer/dryer, good cellphone reception, WIFI, DirectTV, Bluray player, hammock, canoe, a large flat parking pad, and a creek near a waterfall. Timbered steps lead down fern strewn slopes to the National Forest that adjoins the lot. Hear the waterfall from your window at night.
