We stayed here for one evening, as a last minute trip to Tallulah Gorge and we were so impressed! We booked the reservation late in the evening and then had a two hour drive before arriving. My iPhone GPS took us somewhere down the road and since it was 10:30pm, we would have been lost had Frank not stayed on...

Dear Friends, thank you so much for your kind review. It was my pleasure to guide you through your last mile or so to my property. I know it was late for you and you were likely very tired. Glad you enjoyed your brief stay, and look forward to having you back again with me soon. Blessings to you and...

We have been coming to this area for over 30 years. We found Mountain Aire 7 or 8 years ago almost by accident; simple internet search. If you want quiet, peaceful, and private, this is the place. If you want an amusement park atmosphere, this is not the place. My wife and I have stayed in almost every room/cottage available....

I feel lucky that we found this place just a few days before New Year's Eve. Frank - the man in this picture - is the owner and manager. He is warm, welcoming, and pays attention to every detail. Our room, decorated to look like a cabin, was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the location was ideal for...

The room we stayed in was a little dated, but it was very clean and well maintained. The innkeeper, Frank, is very friendly and a great host. My wife fell in love with Midnight the cat, who lives on the property and is quick to greet you. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

This was the fifth season our group has stayed at Mountain Aire Cottages & Inn for our trip. Love the quaint comfortable environment. A fun place to stay. We always sit outside when we return and visit among our group and usually meet other travelers. Cottages & houses are always clean & stocked with basics. Each room is decorated differently,...

We always take a fall trip where we meander and find accommodations along the way. We stopped in Clayton to eat and decided to check Mountain Aire Cottages and Inn out. We stayed in the Mountain Lodge Inn room and really enjoyed it. The innkeeper has done a great job updating the interior with log facade walls and lodge decor....

We rented the Blue Ridge cottage for 9/16 and 9/17. The location of the property is nestled in a hillside close to town. It suited our group of 4 women because it had two bedrooms and 2 baths. Midnight the cat greeted us upon our arrival. If ever we are in the area again I would not hesitate to stay...

Clayton is not a large place so the lodging was few and far between. This place was clean, owner was gracious and helpful. Although included in our welcome was rules for our stay. I assume they have their reasons for doing so but I imagine requesting that you do not lay on the comforters on the bed would be a...

Dear Ann, I'm so sorry you were not happy. Had you mentioned your concerns I would have gladly made any accommodation for you. The only reason I ask guests to turn down the comforters is that it helps keep them looking nice for everyone, yourself and others after you. As to the mattress, it is a Sealy 12", medium firmness....

We spent 3 nights in a motel unit. It was so nice. We were delighted to find such a good place to stay. The units are super clean and well furnished. It is quiet and peaceful, such a nice place to relax yet close to town. We have previously stayed on the busy highway and were glad to find a...

We were traveling around the Southeast US looking for a place to retire. We came without a reservation to the Mountain Aire and Frank was an excellent host! The accommodations were clean and quite. It truly is like a piece of heaven here. Clayton is a lovely town with wonderful people.
