About Idyll - Betty Creek Valley

THE SPOT

Idyll is scenic majesty at its best; an unforgettable setting, in Rabun Gap. A heavy timber barn, an attached covered outdoor pavilion with a warm stone fireplace, garden fire pit, serene pond, and much more on thirty-two verdant rolling acres. The tranquil secluded valley floor surrounded by expansive mountain views and briskly flowing creeks combine to create a sense of profound serenity.

Idyll (pronounced l/ˈīdl/) is a short poem, descriptive of rustic life and also means a perfect time, a moment of bliss, honeymoon, paradise, heaven on earth, all befitting this exceptional experience.

The barn was built at the "turn of the century"... the 21st one that is! The Pavilion provides an attached covered outdoor space where the dramatic views can be pleasantly enjoyed. Fastidiously appointed private washrooms, one with a shower and primping space, and a well outfitted prep kitchen.

The lush and fascinatingly furnished loft, overlooking the barn main floor, provides respite from the festivities, a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings in a cozy and comfortable barn.

YOURS FOR A DAY

Flexibility and customization are the hallmarks of Idyll. Ceremonies can be held in a number of choice locations capturing the essence of this special place.

What we offer in the day package:

  • Chairs and tables for up to 275 people, set up and taken down
  • Usage of the barn and grounds with an Idyll representative on site
  • Ample prep kitchen
  • Portable and flexible Bose L-1 sound system for PA, musicians, DJ and/or ambient music
  • Normal cleanup
  • Activities including our version of corn hole, croquet, and for the more adventuresome, ax throwing.

We can also provide complete wedding decoration including botanicals and decor... anything feasible and legal, as an additional charge dependant on what you're looking for, of course.

EATS

Bring anyone you like, the prep kitchen is ready to handle whatever you can dish out! There's a commercial range, warming cabinet, 150 lb ice machine, double glass fridge, and more. Optimally located for serving and access to deliveries, caterer's will find working here a breeze, making your day even smoother. A wheeled bar table is available and licensed bar tenders are welcome.

AROUND

North Georgia attractions are plentiful, especially if you like the outdoors. The Appalachian Trail runs on the ridge just to the west; hiking trails with waterfalls abound. Lake Burton and Highlands, NC are just a short and scenic drive offering luxe restaurants and accommodations. Unique to the valley is the Hambidge Center, and artist-in-residence compound open to the public and just across the road. The quaint and bustling City of Clayton offers shopping, accommodations and restaurants.
