Property description

Sweet Retreat is perfect if you are looking for a quiet and private get-a-way. The kitchen is fully stocked for everything you may need to cook with. The living room has a cute love seat and chair that sits right in front of the gas fireplace for you to enjoy in the cooler months. The 42" flat screen is above the fire place and perfectly located so if you are sitting in the living room or laying in the comfortable log queen size bed (with feather bed topper) you can enjoy a movie or just watch some TV. Upstairs you have a full size bath.

The kitchen area has a table and charis for 4. Right off the living room you can go outside onto the over sized upper deck and enjoy the view of Mt. Yonah. If you enjoy grilling then you can make your meal on the gas grill. Patio seating for 4 is provided on the upper deck. Sweet Retreat is a heavily wooded lot with plenty of privacy. Once you go downstairs you will see an amazing comfortable king size bed with feather topper. I promise once you get in bed you will never want to get out. You also have a large flat screen TV mounted on the wall. You can lie in bed and also take in the beautiful view of Mt Yonah. There is also a full bath down stairs for your convenience. If this has not convinced you to book your reservations now then how does a huge hot tub on the private patio overlooking the amazing views sound? There is also a pool table downstairs if you like to have a little fun at while staying in.

Keep in mind the many places to see and activities offered in Helen that are close by. A few places to visit while you are in Helen is Sautee Nacoochee and when you are here make sure you stop by the Old Sautee Store, built in 1873. The entrance is like a museum and everything remains in the store as it was when it closed down in the early 1900's. Travel the Georgia Wine Hwy. Take in the Gold Rush town of Dahlonega with just about a 30 minute drive. Of course, Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi State park are just a 10 miles drive or so to the North side of Helen. There are many water falls in the area including one called Dry Falls, just inside the N.C line. This one is unique in that you can walk behind the waterfall under the rock overhang. Beautiful site! Take time to visit Smithgall Woods and Tallulah Gorge and walk across the swing bridge. Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia. Beautiful!

We have provided a complete Picnic Pack for your convenience that is located in the cabin. Take this along with you for the day and enjoy the beautiful sites that the North Georgia Mountains have to offer. Check out georgiatrails com for more suggestions of places to see. You'll want to return for many years to come, as many of our guest do.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We have been using VRBO for several years and have had so many wonderful guest. Unfortunately, we never actually meet in person so this may help you get to know us a little better. We have always enjoyed the peace and quiet of the mountains in North Georgia, Blue Ridge mountains and all areas surrounding. It's a great opportunity to get away from cell phones, computers and demands of everyday life and enjoy nature. There are so many wonderful waterfalls and picnic areas. It's a great opportunity to visit all of the wineries along the Georgia Wine Hwy as well. This seems to be a very special trip for families as children get to experience so much of nature in an unhurried time frame. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we enjoy ours. Owner (Patty Stanton) is a State of Georgia Licensed Realtor 136786

Why the Owner Chose Helen:
More, now than ever before, I really appreciate the cool nights in the N. Georgia Mtns and large shade trees. Not terribly far from Atlanta, but it feels worlds apart. It always makes us slow down a bit and just enjoy life when we travel to the area. Refreshing.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
While we are staying in our cabin, we always enjoy hiking up to Anna Ruby Falls and walk to the top. It's so close by and it's a great way to start our morning. Occasionally, we'll take day trips to Tallulah Falls and go on into N. Carolina to Dry Falls, Bridal Vail Falls and many more along the way. We are also close to Brasstown Bald and Clingman's Dome. There is just so much to visit and enjoy, you have to remember not to book your time too full, so you can just relax and enjoy the quiet times.
