Perched high in the northern Georgia mountains, the town of Clayton beckons to nature lovers and visitors in search of endless outdoor adventures. Come here to experience beautiful vistas perfect for hiking, boating, mountain biking, and Clayton, GA camping. Come here in the spring to watch the mountains bloom with wildflowers, or come in the summer for the annual Art and Wine Festival, three days of wine tastings featuring local vineyards and art gallery doors thrown open to the public. If you visit during the wintertime, explore the pristine back country trails on snowshoes. Autumn is also a breathtaking season in Clayton and a great time to experience nature's fireworks display.
No matter when you plan your visit, the best way to experience Clayton is with a stay in your own private vacation rental or lakeside cabin.

Then come home in the evening and host dinner in your secluded luxury vacation home for your family and friends.
