Rustic Mountain Chic
On the square of Historic Downtown Clayton
In the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains
Elegant… yet charming
The White Birch Inn, on the square of Historic Clayton, Georgia, is a luxurious boutique bed and breakfast inn. The six guestrooms and suites in this century-old building are uniquely decorated in the style of rustic mountain chic. From a copper soaking tub and a tree stump sink base to stone fireplaces and bark walls, you will be visually mesmerized.
Rise early for coffee or tea in the sun-drenched guest lounge to peak at the local paper or decide on dinner from the local menu book, then jog on the treadmill in the gym, all before coming downstairs for your complimentary breakfast.
Whether you spend your day shopping or antiquing in Clayton’s quaint stores, hiking the many nearby trails, fly fishing or boating, visiting wineries, or just exploring the area, you will be ready for your afternoon wine and cheese back at the inn, comparing notes with the other guests.
Several restaurants are within walking distance from our B&B, so after your stroll back from dinner, you will return to your cozy turned-down room with chocolates on your pillow.
Rooms are outfitted with goose-down bedding, however, we have alternatives for guests with allergies. All rooms and suites have ensuite bathrooms complete with L’Occitane toiletries and plush towels. Your room will have either gorgeous views of the mountains, the park next door, our screened porch or our private patio.
Whether your travel wishes include an adventure, spa or romance, The White Birch Inn has many room package add-ons from which to choose. From champagne, roses, and chocolate-covered strawberries, to a custom packed picnic, or an in-house massage treatment, your stay here will surely be indulgent.
Our warm staff will take care of all your needs and help you create a memorable vacation ensuring you capture the essence of the Blue Ridge Mountains during your stay at The White Birch Inn.
