Clayton is a charming town in northeast Georgia - visit the shops and restaurants in the historical Main Street. Yet it also has the modern conveniences of major retailers such as Ingles (grocery), Wal-Mart and The Home Depot. It is 2 miles south of Black Rock Mountain state park; close to Lake Burton and Lake Rabun. It is also close to Tullulah Falls, Dillard, Sky Valley (NC), Dillsboro, Hiawassee, and Highlands and Asheville (NC).

I've posted Reviews on the local restaurants and amenities; please see a separate link to access these!

We love it there and love sharing it!

About Beth Taylor

Atlantans! One a corporate CPA and the other a video producer.

Beth Taylor purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Beth Taylor chose Clayton

Clayton is big enough to stay awhile and stay entertained...but small enough to dial down and relax. Being 90 minutes from Atlanta was a criteria; easy weekend get-away.

What makes this cabin unique

We're secluded on the side of a mountain under a canopy of trees, yet 2 minutes from downtown or the grocery store.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your cabin for the weekend while we were here for the Warrior Dash. Your cabin is beautiful, relaxing and very clean. It was the perfect retreat for 3 couples. Our only suggestion would be to label the light switches :).

Thank you again!

It was a great stay and the perfect getaway we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this cabin for a weekend getaway. The cabin is very comfortable, clean, and the adequate directions / instructions take away any guesswork. Great location; close to town, but secluded enough to unplug. Owners communication was excellent.

The cabin was great. Located very near town and easy to get to. Everything was very clean and looked great. It was very quiet and peaceful. Hi-light of our trip was a mama bear and her little baby right outside kitchen window by the front porch. That was great seeing her and baby. She stayed around long enough for us to take pictures from the window, and then went on up the hill. Hope we have a chance to stay there again in the future. Beth was great to work with.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent New Years 2018 here and had a blast! We had made plans to leave and explore the area, but because of the freezing weather, we ended up staying in and cooking and watching old movies all weekend! It was perfect! This was made easy with the well-stocked kitchen being right beside the fireplace-warmed living area in a great open-concept design. The cabin is super comfortable and has very nice bedroom suites (all having king beds!) so that everyone has their own space and bathroom. We would definitely rent again!

Great cabin!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed with another couple. There was plenty of room on the top floor for us all. The bed to the left was firm. The bed to the right was soft. It let us decide which worked better for each of us. The only downside was the trash situation. We did not like storing our trash in the cabin with us or in the truck of our car. The only other option would have been to make a daily trip to the dump. My husband suggests putting an animal proof trash bin on the outside of the cabin. He can tell you how to build one and attach it if you wish. We think the rental fee is sufficient enough that it should cover removal of all trash not just one large kitchen bag. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. Beth responded quickly to any questions and was very helpful. It was a pleasant stay. We would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Hi! I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin. Thank you for the feedback regarding the trash; this is the first time I've had this feedback so I will consider it. My initial thought is to not store trash outside because even in an animal proof bin the smell will attract animals...(bears)...something we do not want. However, I might put in a larger trash can in the kitchen to help on this. When I am there personally I simply tie off the 14-gallon trash bags as they fill and put them in a larger trash bag (in the pantry) as a holding tank in the corner. But I can appreciate you may not want to do that. So we will take a look at adding a larger trash can to address this. On the plus side, our local trash/recycle place is kindof is laced with flowers by the local women in town and the folks who work there are always happy to help. And hugs are free during the holidays by one of the women who works there. I guess I'm silly but I love our little local trash/recycle place (the one on 76 East.)
