“Beautiful, comfortable, peaceful. Just what the Dr ordered!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Our family came to Mountain Aire for a little bit of quiet and to escape the hustle, bustle, and techno-insanity that is everyday life. What we found is that Frank is fantastically on top of everything here, has built and maintained a perfect little getaway, and really cares about his guests. The cottage we stayed in, The Clearview, provided us exactly that, a clear view of our family and the time to reconnect. This establishment has everything you could need in a quiet escape, without all of the traffic and to's and fro's of a standard hotel. Kudos to Frank and his Mountain Aire. What a blessing.

We are on the porch now drinking a glass of wine in our rocking chairs. A single owner that handles everything including the cleaning. Very good value for a few days in Clayton, GA, close to main street, we walked to the cafe to eat breakfast. Lots of trees and greenery on the property.

An exceptional motel- We stay here anytime we want to relax and enjoy the mountains. The rooms are lovely and very clean.We come back once or twice a year because the experience is so pleasant and renewing. Frank, the owner is unusually helpful and welcoming.

During a recent visit to Clayton I stayed at the Mount Aire. I found it to be very clean, quite, comfortable, and very well appointed and maintained - SUPER clean! I would highly recommend Mount Aire to anyone. Frank was a very friendly and helpful host!

Room Tip: I looked at several rooms and all were clean and appealing.

We stayed for three nights in July in the Dogwood room. Very clean and nice. Pretty bathroom with handpainted design on the walls. Frank is a very gracious and caring host! We certainly plan to come back!!

After a long day on the Chatooga River we stayed in the Dogwood Room at the Mountaire Cottages and Motel. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The kitchenette/microwave and small refridgerator perfectly fit our needs. Sue, the innkeeper was so gracious and welcoming! We will definately return when we are in the area.

This property is pretty and unique, comprised of several cottages of varying sizes plus four motel-style room units. We stayed in unit 4, a simple, small but clean room with two double beds.
Decor was DIY country style. (I liked the hand painted effects in the bathroom.) When we were there the dogwood trees were in bloom and the parking spot in front of our room was carpeted with pink petals -- a touch you won't find at a Comfort Inn! This place is rustic, clean, and provides the basic comforts. It is not boutique; it is genuine rural Georgia, in a beautiful, mountainous corner of the state. Low rates make this place a bargain.
