Love visiting Claton GA/Rabun County

On late notice we decided to head to the GA Mtns for a quick getaway. We stayed at the Old Clayton Inn. It is truly an old Inn run by good people with great service. We sat in rocking chairs on the 2nd floor balcony overlooking the main street, enjoying the breeze and chatting with other guests. Our room was small but comfortable, just what you would expect from an old inn. One note, there are not hair driers so bring your own or better yet, just go natural! The bed and room were comfortable and we both slep very well.

We were fortunate, that the Celebrate Clayton Festival was going on this weekend. It is an Arts, Music, Crafts and Gardening event that started on Saturday morning. Lots of hand-made items and good music!

We watched the setup on Friday evening, while dining at the Bistro on South Main. The food was great with a variety on the menu. I hope it can make it during this economy. If you are in the area, it is worth stopping at the Bistro for a meal. Dining was inside or patio on the street. Music was live piano that could be heard while in the lounge, or in our case while sitting the the lobby enjoying a glass of wine after dinner.

On Saturday we headed to Louie's on the Lake in Lakemont, a few miles from Clayton. The reputation for great pizza is well deserved. We have eaten here before but never had the pizza. We will be back!

On a side note, also just a few miles away from Clayton is the city of Tiger. The drive-in is open with first run movies great for the family. The Tiger winery is also close by. We didn't have time this weekend for Tiger but have visited often and it is well worth the trip!

We love this area. The people are generous, real, down home and always friendly.

Thanks for the trip report. We always enjoy our visits to Clayton, Dillard and Highlands, NC area. The spring and fall are our favorites times to visit.
