Mountain Selah is ready for you to unplug from the hustle and bustle of life. Sit on the rocking chair porch and breathe in the fresh air and listen to the creek in the distance. This fully appointed home offers privacy, but quick access to Lake Rabun, Tallulah Gorge or great dining and shopping in Clayton. White water rafting is only 20 minutes away. Close to the action, but far enough to enjoy solitude and quiet for those who want solitude.

The space
Mountain "Selah" is not in a subdivision or busy area. We have wonderful neighbors, so being respectful of them is important to us. Enjoy the beauty of the area and honor the land and space while you're here. Mountain living is about slowing down, disconnecting from technology and learning to live at a different pace.

Where you’ll be

Lakemont, Georgia, United States

1. Lake Rabun is only 1.5 miles away from the house. Make a right off of Squirrel Ridge Run and pass by Alley’s Store. You’ll get to a bend in the road…bear right onto Lake Rabun Road. You’ll see some beautiful homes, boathouses, and the lake. You can eat at Louie’s on the Lake (opens at 5 p.m.) or go to the marina or go about 4 miles to the Rabun Beach campground and swimming area. There’s also a place where you can rent boats and ski-do’s beyond the campground area.
2. There is a Walmart going up the mountain in Clayton. It’s about 10 minutes from the house on 441 North. You can make a left off of Squirrel Ridge Run and when you get to the road across from Wiley Presbyterian church…make a hard right onto Wiley Conn (connector), then a left onto 441 North. You can get all your groceries and if you forget your swimming trunks or fishing pole…they’ve got it all.
3. If you’re looking for quaint shops and fine local dining, make a left onto Old 441 North (the road you turn onto directly off of Squirrel Ridge Run). This road will lead you to downtown Clayton (takes longer to get to Clayton than going on the new 441, but it is a more scenic drive).
4. Now, if you’ve heard of “The Dillard House”—a famous Southern family-style restaurant…then make plans to head up 441 North. The Dillard House is only 20 minutes away (14 miles). When you get into Dillard you’ll see a big sign on the right pointing you to the entrance. Take friends and enjoy good food, fellowship and a scenic view. They also have a barn full of billy goats, sheep, horses, etc. for kids to pet. This is a nice restaurant that is family friendly.
5. If you’re wanting a family friendly rafting experience you may want to drive to Dillsboro, NC (See flyer at house). It’s a non-guided “float” 7.5 miles down the river. Dillsboro is about an hour to 1 ½ hour drive up 441 North. This is a great “first” experience for the novice rafter…or for a family outing.
6. If you’re desiring the adrenaline producing white-water rafting excursion, Southeastern Expeditions is only 20 minutes away. Head up to Clayton (441 North) and when you arrive in town make a right onto Highway 76. You’ll head about 9 miles down the road and it will be on the right.
7. Hiking opportunities. There are lots of trails and waterfalls within a 20 minute radius of the house. Tallulah Falls is scenic and has a nice Interpretive Center that is educational (and not a snoozer) and is only 5 minutes from the house. Black Rock Mountain is a great place to enjoy amazing sunrises…if you’re an early bird.
8. Mountain Biking Opportunities. Less than 5 miles from the house is Stonewall Mountain biking park for those of you that want to try a “real” mountain biking experience. Haven’t been there yet, but see folks making the turn into the park with bikes in tow.
9. Swimming opportunities. The closest place to go swimming is 5-10 minutes away (depending on traffic). Simply head back to 441 going south towards Tallulah Falls. There is a beach and picnic area on the right PRIOR to crossing the gorge. It costs $5 per vehicle. Park, and then walk down to the lake. There are some picnic tables, some swings in the shade, and a shallow section for younger children. There is also a pier to fish from. You can swim or sunbathe. (It’s a fairly small beach area, but is nice and quiet). Take your towel, lawn chair and a good book.
10. Finally, if you like blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and apples. Keep your eye out for signs telling you it’s time to pick---Blackberries are first in the Spring, then blueberries and raspberries, then Apples in the Fall. As you drive down Old Historic 441 North (heading towards Clayton) you’ll see a big farm—GREAT produce—some of the best tomatoes we’ve ever tasted! You’ll also go through the town of Tiger---which has a local winery that is winning lots of international awards. They have blueberry bushes on their property and will let you pick a gallon of blueberries for $5! IF you keep heading towards Clayton you’ll also pass an old-time Drive-In (Movies…for you young ones).

I'm a New Englander thriving in the south. The topography and lifestyle of north Georgia mountains remind me of New England community I grew up in. Of course I miss the ocean, but I don't miss Maine winters. Worked in Higher Ed for many years at Georgia universities. Happily shifted to Real Estate several years ago. Love finding folks their dream mountain home.
