Not long ago, we wrote an article on the 24 Best Airbnb Cabins in North Georgia. We were just messing around reviewing some of the spots we had stayed at in the past. But turns out there was a lot of interest in our recommendations. Fast forward a year or two later and Airbnb has grown like crazy. With all the new listings that have shown up since the last time we posted, we thought we’d create a new list of some of the best and latest spots we’ve found, stayed at, or are day dreaming about in and around Clayton Georgia. That means that every cabin listed here will get you to downtown in 20 minutes or less – and in a few cases, just a short walk!
So take a look below and let us know what you think. We’ve tried to offer a good variety of cabins based on location, budget, and personality. If you don’t find anything that fits on this list, you won’t hurt our feelings. But if you do, please consider sharing this article on Facebook or with your friends. This isn’t a sponsored post (we don’t do that) so no hidden agenda here other than we like these and think you might too. Enjoy!
We’re also working on a Best Of list for all the major North Georgia cities so be sure to drop a comment or link of your favorite one in the comments below!
And if you decide to book one of these spots, be sure to tell them that you decided to book because you saw their spot on Wander North Georgia!
*We set the booking dates for a week in March and the prices were generated off of that time frame. Keep in mind the pricing may be slightly different depending on what time of the year or season you plan your trip.
