Helen the beautiful little Bavarian Town is 38 miles southwest and an easy drive.PPLEASE NOTE being in the mountains this is a" mountain driveway "but it is short and all concrete and very stable.USE LOW GEAR.Note for newcomers to the area there are books in magazine form called "The Wayward Traveler"on site with many things to do places to eat etc. Very informative and for your use.

About Bill Setzer

Native Tampa Fl.Live in South Alabama.Graduate UF 1973 and have been an Insurance Broker for 35 years.Now retired

Bill Setzer purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Bill Setzer chose Screamer Mountain

This property has it all. It is comfortable and cozy with a beautiful view.Large enough for a family with plenty of activities in the area or just sitting on the porch isn't bad.Firewood is always down below the porch for you to use.PLEASE NO MOTORCYCLES OR 4 WHEELERS.

What makes this cabin unique

We purchased Williebear Cabin July 2008.It was built in 1999 but never used.We looked at many properties in the area and many had a 'winter view'.Not this one.The view is panoramic and the highlights are Black Rock Mountain,Pinnacle and Saddle Gap North Carolina.This home has the cozy appeal but also has plenty of room for 8-10 people.It is on 2 1/2 levels and is mainly wood floors and walls.The fireplace is stone and puts out a lot of heat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the cabin. We had great wether so the views were super.Played a lot of golf at Sky Valley course.Had some good meals.Sat on the porch every night.Thanks.S

Annual family get together...6 adults and 3 dogs...great time, great area, great cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great. It had everything we needed, just had to bring our own food. Cabin was clean and well maintained. Parking was tight. We had three cars (2 CRVs and a VW). Plenty of outdoor things to do in the area: hiking, zip lining, kayaking, swimming...great time.

Beautiful house, beautiful view, very cozy

This was the most amazing vacation I've ever had. The owners were amazing and sent a packet of activities in the area. The house was gorgeous and there was an astounding view of the mountain from the second floor.

Annual Moutain Trip

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin. We have a family of 4 and had plenty of space. The cabin was very clean and welcoming. It is nicely decorated so you comfortable to the point it feels like home. Lots to do in Clayton and surrounding counties. You could not ask for a better mountain view. I the evening when the sun goes down you get a beautiful sunset and in the early morning hours the clouds rolling in across the mountain tops will leave you in awe. We will definitely be returning to the Willie Bear.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place and I cannot imagine better owners to work with. Williebear Cabin was exactly as described. Bill answered all of the questions we had prior to our arrival very promptly and also provided us with a packet of information about the area, driving directions including things we might want to visit on the way to the cabin. The cabin was perfect for our needs. Everything you can imagine is provided including a toothbrush if you should forget one. The beds, couches, deck furniture, everything is very comfortable. Some of the mountain roads in NE Georgia can be difficult to navigate, but the directions that Bill sent us were perfect even in the dark. No problems at all getting there. We were blessed to have perfect weather while we were there and the views from the cabin are amazing. This was my first experience renting a house but I cannot imagine any owners being better to work with than Bill and Karen. Amazing rental all the way around. THANK YOU.

Please make sure to check our calender before trying to book.We get many requests for time already booked.Thank You.Note this cabin is very self-contained with almost everything you need except perishable food.ALSO it is a mountain driveway but is short and all concrete and very stable. Unfortunately we have had to add a damage deposit to our billing. While most of our guests are great we have had a few that have "trashed the place".Please note we don't expect you to clean up since you pay for cleaning.But if it is badly taken care of your deposit will not be returned and I will send pictures and explanation as to why.We try very hard to make this place nice and supply a lot of things the others don't so pelase keep that in mind. Thanks Bill Setzer
