About the property

Located in the Beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains overlooking the quaint little town of Clayton, Ga.Close to many activities or just to unwind. Whitewater River rafting, fishing golf great restaurants and a breath taking view of Black Rock Mountain and surrounding mountains. We are located 7 miles south of North Carolina and 5 miles west of South Carolina.If you are looking for Gatlinburg you might want to keep looking but if you would like to visit Gatlinburg we are an hour and a half due south.Most of the water in Georgia comes from our mountains and we are blessed with many lakes and rivers,the Chattooga being the crown jewel of the southern whitewater rivers.Lake Burton,Seed,Rabun,Tallulah and Tugelo,Yonah are all very close.Lots of activities in the area or just sitting on the porch and looking at a beautiful view.If you enjoy wine there are a good many vineyards. Helen the beautiful little Bavarian Town is 38 miles southwest and an easy drive.PLEASE 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.We also send a packet "snail mail" with many things to do and see.

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.It is updated often and well maintained.All systems are checked regularly for best performance

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect place to watch the eclipse.What a view overheard and below.We had a lovely time here.Your cabin is precious and very well stocked.Thanks for the memories T.W Loganville Ga. {word for word in guest book.Note eclipse was at full coverage 3 miles north of us}

If you like to trout fish ask owner.Will send you to the right place depending on the time of year.Please no 4 wheelers or motorcycles .Will not be responsible for any accidents on premises.Also we have gone back to review booking vs on-line booking and will contact you to make sure our cabin is for you.The mountains are beautiful and there are lots of things to do.But frankly some people should go to the beach.The roads are windy and our drive is steep but short and all "rolled concrete" with very good grip.So if you are unsure of the mountain driving this place is probably not for you.Thanks

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were so incredibly pleased with our trip to Williebear Cabin. Every detail had been covered and the cabin was stocked with every possible need. The views are spectacular, the food in Clayton is exceptional, and the drive from Atlanta was short and stress free. We will definitely be returning to Williebear Cabin.

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.

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.
