Overview

About the property

Located On 2 Acres Bordering The Chattahoochee National Forest

Betty's Creek Cabin - North Georgia Vacation Rental owned and operated Beechwood Inn Bed and Breakfast located nearby in Clayton, GA. This luxury Cabin is located in beautiful Betty's Creek Valley very near the Hambidge Arts Center and just a short walk to the Baptismal Hole on Betty's Creek. The cabin has 2 bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen), Fully Appointed Kitchen (just bring your own food), 2 Bathrooms, Working Gas Log Fireplace, HVAC, Paved Parking, Gas Grill, Front and Back Covered Porches. Nearby National Forest Land offers miles of hiking, fishing and recreation.

Betty’s Creek Cabin offers 2 acres bordering the Chattahoochee and Nantahala National Forests. Made almost entirely of logs, the cabin was built with mountain relaxation in mind.

Children over 12 are comfortable at Betty's Creek. Sorry, no pets. Maximum occupancy us 4.

Your vacation cabin sits amid conifers and hardwoods, is nearly surrounded by woods and has lovely views. From the 2 large porches you may watch the deer graze and the occasional bear may stop by to see what you're up to. Watch swarms of humming birds enjoy nectar from the feeders just inches away from you on the porch. Hawks regularly nest nearby. You'll definitely want to bring your camera.

Because the cabin is a Beechwood Inn rental property (Member of Select Registry and Voted Best Inn in Georgia 2013) your will enjoy amenities far superior to most rental properties. You will enjoy high quality sleep systems, 600 thread count sheets, new furnishings and the owners' art collection, high-efficiency washer and dryer and a high-definition, large-screen television with more than 150 channels delivered via satellite. For a nice, quiet evening, enjoy some of the board games or jigsaw puzzles.

If hiking is what you're coming to the mountains for, we have a variety of books and maps that will show you how to find nearby water falls and hiking trails.

Betty’s Creek Cabin is just 2 miles to Dillard and the iconic Dillard House. It is 20 minutes to the Chattooga River for whitewater rafting and zip-lines. And best of all it is only 15 minutes to fine dining in Clayton, Georgia (offering 4 restaurants operated by 'Best Chefs America 2014!'. This is the perfect North Georgia Cabin for your next vacation.

The large front porch features a picnic table and chairs and is perfect for the family picnic. Stop by nearby Andy's Trout Farm and catch dinner.

At the end of Betty's Creek road a marked trail leads west to join the scenic Appalachian Trail at Betty's Creek Gap (about 1 1/2 hour hike). There is an abundance of wild flowers in this Appalachian Rain-forest from early spring until November; flowering trees, flame azaleas, mountain laurel, rhododendron, the many varieties of ferns, the clear tumbling streams; all add delight to your visit in all seasons. If you plan on day hiking, don't forget a raincoat or parka.

Wild turkeys come to the creek daily to drink. Other wildlife using our property and the adjoining wilderness include: bear, white-tailed deer, raccoon, skunk, fox, squirrels, eagles, grouse and an array of songbirds.

When you come to Betty's Creek Log Cabin, be prepared to relax, rock in our high-backed porch rockers, smell the clean mountain air, or walk to Betty's Creek and sit on huge rocks beside the creek and let your cares drift away. Perhaps you'd enjoy fly-fishing for rainbow trout at nearby Andy's Trout Farm; it's just up the creek and you don't even need a license. (You need to try grilled fresh rainbow trout; a real mountain treat.) or spend the afternoon walking the marked and maintained mountain trails through the wilderness area or along the creek.

Be sure to bring a sweater or light jacket even in the summer, since the evening temperature often drops below 55 degrees. The valley and creek are bathed with a very cool evening breeze coming down from the 5000 foot high surrounding mountain peaks.

we loved the cabin. It is so comfortable and homey. My husband and I with a couple of friends enjoyed the cabin for Thanksgiving 2015. The swing on the front porch was wonderful. We are already talking about another trip to the cabin.

Perfect Place for an Escape

  • 5 of 5

Betty's Creek Cabin is owned and operated by the owners of Beechwood Inn Bed and Breakfast in nearby Clayton. The attention to detail shows as the owners have provided a level of quality you do not normally find in a rental property. The furnishings are all high quality yet offer a very "Log Cabin" feel. Everything has been carefully thought out to offer comfort and visual appeal. The beds and mattresses are new and very comfortable. The 600 thread count sheets are worthy of a Ritz-Carlton.

The front porch swing is made of heavy varnished hickory logs - and was my favorite place to lounge. The kitchen is well thought out and offers every utensil and appliance you could want. Fast Wifi and a cell phone extender were appreciated. They even provided Beechwood Inn soap, shampoo and other amenities. The cabin feels remote but is close to town. It is a gorgeous property located in an absolutely beautiful valley. We will certainly return for another visit.

As innkeepers for a Select Registry Inn (Distinguished Inns of North America) we pay attention to the important things like providing comfortable beds, a well maintained and cared for property and award winning hospitality. But we also know that the details matter in providing a memorable and rewarding guest experience. Glad our efforts show. Yes, we agree, Betty’s Creek Valley is one of the most beautiful locations in North Georgia. We look forward to your next visit.
