                      Location

                      Helen,a German style town, is the main draw to this area. For summer, tubing in the Chattahoochee River is the ultimate, cheap cool activity. As fall rolls around, it is Octoberfest, from late September until first of November. There are numerous German restaurants and bars and the Festhall with nightly activities at that time.

                      For outside enthusiasts there is the Appalachian Trail and other hikes , mountain biking trails at Unicoi, and the 6Gap Century the last Sunday in September, starting in Dahlonega; another delightful mountain town to visit as well. The fall also bring the leaf peepers who enjoy the many rural roads to see the colorful season change. Of course the area is a big draw for Motorcycle riders for the thrill of curves and downhill. Winter sometimes brings snow, which is a lovely way to experience the mountains as well.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: I am a native Georgian, growing up on a farm close to the Athens, Ga area. After working in downtown Atlanta 20 years, I fell in love with the North Georgia Mountains and transitioned to this area by purchasing this lovely river house rental. Totally away from it all and a place to unwind from the busy city areas. A place to check out the most beautiful places Georgia has to offer, hiking, cycling, and canoeing. It is definitely for the person who likes the outside and who likes to enjoy nature.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      The house is on the Chattahoochee River, and accessing the river was a main reason I purchased this house. I spent a long July 4th tubing on the river , passing this house along the way and realized this is what I wanted for myself and as a rental for others to enjoy.
