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 2017!'. 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.

Best Cabin Experience Ever

  • 5 of 5

We have visited many locations and can't say enough about this corner of Northeast Georgia - and Betty's Creek Cabin is an absolute delight. Rustic looking from the outside but all modern and stylish on the inside. Beautiful tiled shower and new vanity in the Master bath make it feel luxurious for a cabin in the woods. And the decor is over the top. Nice and new but woodsy furnishings are in keeping with the location but also let you know the owners care about quality.

We stayed here last year and the owners have made many solid improvements from what was already a great cabin. New LED cove lighting in the spacious great room adds warm ambiance. New barn doors on the bedroom closets save a bunch of room. We observed many new furnishings and lighting throughout.

The cabin is set back a short ways from a quiet paved road offering easy access into Dillard and just a short drive to wonderful restaurants in Clayton. We dined at the owners' restaurant at the Beechwood Inn on Saturday Night and it was one of the best dining experiences ever. Great food, great wine and courteous friendly service.

Can't wait to return for our next visit.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as described! Everything quoted in the description was there. King size bed was a somewhat of a surprise, though, for this "vertically challenged" 5'3" female. Getting into and out of this high bed was a "learned" experience. While in the pictures the cabin appears to be secluded, it is in fact, on a well traveled two-lane road. This caused us no concern, but if you're looking for a cabin in the woods, you may be surprised. Would highly recommend this cabin for its cleanliness and its location. The owners could not have been more accommodating.

Thanksgiving 2015

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.

Owner's Response: Betty's Creek Cabin is the perfect place to spend a holiday like Thanksgiving with close friends and family. We are also pleased we had such beautiful mild weather so you could enjoy the great artistic front porch swing. We look forward to your next visit. David and Gayle Darugh
