Helen cottage description

The Alemaigne Haus Cabin is within the city limits of Helen, with paved road access, and walking distance to town. This family built home is located on 1 1/2 acres a couple of blocks behind the new Helen Water Park. Innsbruck Golf Resort is only two blocks away.

You'll love sitting on one of the two covered porches while listening to the sounds of the creek in the back yard. On most days you will see wild turkeys walking through the yard. If you would rather be indoors, enjoy the 55' LCD flat screen TV; high speed internet and WIFI; poker table in the game room; or, sit in the spacious sunroom to relax and enjoy the mountain view through the large picture windows.

The home features two large bedrooms upstairs with queen size pillow-top beds and a private full bath in each. The master bedroom has a sitting area with a desk. Both bedrooms have a 26' LCD flat screen TV. A Playstation 2 Game Console is in the Guest Bedroom along with six games.

The main level of the home has bamboo hardwood flooring and ceramic tile. The beautiful full kitchen has Corian counter tops and a breakfast island where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee and breakfast, or you can enjoy your meals in the dining area. There's also a large full bath with a double vanity on the main level and a separate laundry room.

We personally greet our guests at the front door upon arrival to show you around the cabin and to give you the opportunity to ask any questions. We also provide maps, a travel guide, flyers of local attractions, and local restaurant menus for your convenience.

If you want the feeling of seclusion with much peace and quiet, but want to be close to all of Helen's activities, then this is the place for you. Stay at our cabin and you'll be glad you did. We hope that you will come again and again!

                            This was a great experience for my wife and I and our two kids. This place was just right in so many ways. We loved the open feeling from the elevated view through the picture windows at the back of the house. We got the charm of a cozy cabin with the comforts of a more refined modern home. Everything was very clean and well kept. It was obvious the owners care about what they are providing here.

                            We were greated by a warm welcome from the owners with a nice bottle of wine and they satyed and talked with us for a while. It was such a welcoming feeling to know who you are renting from. We really enjoyed our stay for the time we were there. The cabin is located in a very beautiful location and not far from the town of Helen. Its actually in walking distance. The cabin is beautifully decorated and I felt like I was at home. We have the same colors and style as in the cabin. Terry and her husband are great!!!!! I would recommend this cabin to anyone. Cleanest place we have ever stayed at. Everything is in a hop skip and a jump away. We are planning another trip very soon. Everything on the listing is accurate.

                            Looking online for a reasonably priced place to stay for a few days over Valentines Day weekend was starting to look a little bleak when Alemaigne Haus came up in the search. I almost couldn't believe the hype....the pictures and the descriptions sounded amazing for such a great price! After a few easy email exchanges with the owners, Terry and Gary, plans were finalized. We arrived Friday afternoon and the owners were waiting for us - with a personalized bottle of wine and a collection of yummy chocolates! They told us a bit about the property and showed us around and then left us to begin our vacation, which was made so easy at this lovely getaway. We needed nothing - there was already split firewood and a firestarter log for us to use in the fireplace, a list of all the special events around town (this is why we went ziplining!) a binder with local menus, a stack of activity fliers, and on and on. There were even items in the fridge and pantry for us to use if we wanted! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, etc and all the appliances were new and in great condition. Actually, everything was new and in great condition. The two bedrooms were comfortable and well appointed and the three full baths were stocked with big fluffy towels and great lighting. This awesome home was close to everything in Helen and the views were inspiring. We watched turkeys in the morning and found evidence of deer on our walk to the creek directly below the cabin. We spent time on the deck one beautiful morning and just really enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We expect to go back again and again as this is a great deal on a great property with great owners.

                            Owner response: We are always so delighted to hear from guests and are pleased to know that our cabin is enjoyable and well equipped. It's wonderful to receive such positive comments! We do hope that you will return again and again.

                            I got in touch with Terry a few days before we wanted to rent the cabin. Were we lucky to know that it was available. The cabin is more like a home... beautifully decorated and very very well furnished. All we had to do was bring ourselves and some ingredients as we planned on relaxing and doing some cooking for the two days were were there. Terry and Gary are wonderful hosts. They came over personally, showed us around and answered all our questions. We ended up enjoying the lovely fireplace and the well stocked kitchen. The beds were great... new mattresses and all. If you want a cabin that is close to Helen, GA, but not too close... this is it !!! It's less than 2 miles from the city and in a wooded area. We plan on contacting Terry again when we want to take another vacation to relax and unwind.

                            Owner response: We love to hear great comments regarding our cabin and are always glad when our guests enjoy it so much. Our cabin is actually less than a mile from downtown Helen, yet it seems as though you're miles away from everything since it's so peaceful and quiet. It's within walking distance to downtown which takes about 15 minutes to walk and only three minutes to drive.

                            We had a wonderful stay at the Alemaigne Haus Cabin! It was perfect for our family in every way! Terry and Gary went out of their way make us feel welcome during our stay. They really know how to make us feel right at home...from the thoughtful little extras (complimentary bottle of wine, items in the pantry, toiletries in the bathrooms, etc.) to the beautiful décor and Christmas decorations. We are already making plans with our family to return for another trip!

                            This cabin is by far the most comfortable cabin we have ever rented in the Georgia or NC mountains. The owners, Terri and Gary, were warm and greeted us when we arrived with a bottle of wine and spent quite a few minutes telling us all about the cabin as well as all the fun things to do while we were in Helen. The amenities were so much appreciated and the entire cabin was spotlessly clean. I would recommend this get away for anyone wanting a peaceful and beautiful vacation. My favorite was drinking coffee on the deck and listening to the sounds of the birds and the leaves falling through the trees. Thanks Terri and Gary. Hope to see you again October 2014.

                            We arrived with our friends after a long hike on Friday and were personally greeted by Terry and Gary. This is a wonderful house--very well laid out and attractively decorated. It is very well supplied and beautifully maintained. I would come back in a heartbeat. We enjoyed sitting on the deck for breakfast, especially and the sunroom is lovely. It is a very nice home and the owners are very nice. We had a great time hiking during the day and going downtown to the Oktoberfest festivities during the evening.

                            This is absolutely a wonderful and convenient place to stay while in Helen GA. It is located a very short drive (1-2 minutes) to the main road that leads to all the Helen activities. You could walk back and forth to town but coming back you have to walk up a very steep hill to get to the cabin. Even though this cabin is so close to town, you are tucked away in a very private location, surrounded by a canopy of tall trees. Just a perfect place to stay if you enjoy peace and quiet. The cabin is very lovely in all aspects. Beautifully decorated, very clean and extremely comfortable. There is a spectacular view of the hilly backyard, dense with tall, lush trees. We saw a family of deer heading towards the babbling creeks as we drank coffee on deck. What a stunning view it must be when the leaves change. You also have a wonderful view out the kitchen and dining room windows. On the main floor there is a large bathroom (two sinks, shower), a game room, sun room, living room, dining room (with flat screen, stereo, dvd player, fireplace), fully equipped kitchen, laundry room w/iron board, and a walkout deck. On the top floor there are two good size bedrooms, each with a small bathroom/shower, flat screen TV’s and very comfortable beds. One of the many things that impressed me was all of the thoughtful amenities that the owners provided to their guests. There were all types of things provided such as nightlights in bathrooms, good quality towels (and a good amount), extra toilet paper, paper towels, bath soap, etc. In the kitchen, all types of pots/pans, utensils, some spices, dish soap, bug spray, cleaning supplies. There are even walking sticks in laundry room if you want to explore the area. The back deck area has a large table/chairs, a grill and trash cans. It overlooks the dense forest area behind the house. You can hear the soft sounds of the babbling creek as you enjoy your coffee. Very peaceful and tranquil. The owners are also very friendly and courteous. They met us and the keys and we chatted for a few minutes. They are a very lovely couple who take great pride and care of their property. We enjoyed meeting them. I usually bring quite a few items from home when we rent cabins or other rentals such as extra paper products, dish/bath soap, cleaning products, trash bags, etc. but I didn’t really have to use my supply. How nice. However the only thing I did use were my favorite anodized pan and henckel knives (I enjoy cooking and h

                            Thank you Gary and Terry for giving us the opportunity to share in your cabin. It was everything promised and even more. The cabin was immaculate and felt like we were home. All the extra amenities that were provided is something that we have never had before. When we arrived there was Terry with a bottle of local wine with a special label wishing me a Happy Birthday, so special. We enjoyed the the porch in the morning watching the hummingbirds come in to the feeder. I suggest that everbody who rents the cabin must keep the hummingbird feeder full of sugar water. We played golf one day and really enjoyed that. We definitely will be back and bring my son and his family as there is so much we didn't get to do or see, time went by so quickly. I can't wait. Thanks again.

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: My husband and I both grew up in Georgia and have visited Helen many times together for relaxation and enjoyment. We found ourselves going back at least twice a year. We liked it so much that we decided to purchase a piece of property and build a vacation home. We later decided that we wanted to give others an opportunity to enjoy it too.

                          Why the Owner Chose Helen:
                          We chose to build our cabin in Helen, Georgia, because we really like the touch of Bavaria in this re-created alpine village with cobblestone alleys and old-world towers which is full of activities throughout the year.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We love sitting on the deck as we listen to the sounds of the creek in the back yard. The cabin is located in the city limits and is within walking distance to town, yet you have the feeling of total seclusion.
