“This motel is outstanding.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

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.

The first day we arrived I knew we had made the right choice. Just driving up and seeing quaint beauty and we manicured landscape brought a smile to my face. Then as a took in the total package of the pristine cottages not to mention the sweet set of 4hotel rooms. They had the good since to save them. After meeting Frank the owner, I learned he started from scratch, poured his heart into bringing the lost era of hotel back to life. Well he did that and more! each room has it's own theme. The rooms are spotless. Nice kitchen area and the shower in our room "The Dogwood" is awesome. You gotta try it. And last but not least by ant means Miss Sue who manages Mountain Aire Cotteges is so nice and friendly. The best by far all around. We will be back many times I'm sure. Can't wait to see the area in the fall! Let's just say we will stay cozy and happy. Thanks Frank for giving so much of yourself to this wonderful place.

Room Tip: Any room that meets your needs will please.

We have spent the third week in October every year for 10 years at Mountain Aire Cottages. We've stayed in individual rooms (The Mountain Lodge and The Dogwood Room) cottages (The Mountain View Cottage and The Clear View Cottage) and also the Hillside House . All of these accommodations were cozy, clean and well equipped. From the very first visit we were treated more like family than lodge guests. Frank (Inn Keeper) and his family make Mountain Aire Cottages our second home. The beauty of the surrounding Clayton area is just icing on the cake. We look forward to our stay all year long.
