It’s true you may not want to leave the natural beauty of Chota Falls Estate. But if you’re in the mood to venture out, you won’t have to go far. Three miles away, the mountain community of Clayton, Georgia, is situated at the base of Black Rock Mountain. Here you’ll stroll tree-lined streets past specialty shops and farm-to-table restaurants. Sip sweet treats like shakes and floats from the old-fashioned soda fountain at the local drug store. Peruse creative folk art by self-taught artists at the Main Street Gallery and sample award-winning local vintages at Noble Wine Cellar. All in an inviting small-town ambience that’s sure to charm.
