Welcome to Cradle Crest


CradleCrest is a well-furnished, mountain vacation rental cabin that provides short-term accommodations in a quiet and peaceful section of the north Georgia mountains, near the peak of Screamer Mountain, about a mile from downtown Clayton, GA. Clayton is centrally located so that all of the attractions from Asheville, NC, to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN, to Helen - Dahlonega - Hiawassee, GA, to Cherokee, NC, and the Blue Ridge Parkway are easily accessible. This cottage is an ideal travel destination for family vacations, trips and getaways, holiday weekenders, family reunions, or sabbaticals. Many newlyweds have enjoyed a romantic honeymoon in this intimate setting. Several writers and artists have found inspiration and motivation leading to the discovery of new avenues of expression.


The Cradle Crest Rental Cabin is like a home away from home. You feel welcome there as soon as you walk in the door.
