Helen cabin description
PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR for AVAILABILITY PRIOR to asking for a quote!! CALENDAR IS UPDATED when reservations are booked.
Simple Pleasures is a beautiful (winter) seasonal mountain view retreat nestled in the woods only 5 miles from the charming Bavarian town of Helen, Georgia. You are hidden amidst a peaceful forest where you can see no neighbors or hear traffic from your private haven. The only sound is the wind gently rustling through the trees or calming sounds of the babbling creek. With rustic elegance, Simple Pleasures offers all of the comforts of home and then some including FREE WiFi, BluRay DVD & Netflix movies!!!!!!
This luxuriously furnished 3-story private cabin has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, living, dining and game room area. It's the perfect place for your family vacation rental, romantic
getaway, honeymoon or church group.
The main floor features a gated wrap-around porch, a stacked
stone wood-burning fireplace and soaring two-story windows that bring the outdoors in. The fully equipped kitchen features maple
cabinets, granite countertops, cookware, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, blender and smooth top stove.
Enjoy the pillow-top king size bed in the master with a full bath,
slate shower and Jacuzzi tub.
The private upper level offers a queen size pillow-top, full bath, tv and reading nook.
It's down to the lower level for play time where you'll enjoy a pool table, big screen TV and full bathroom (shower) including the wet/dry Sauna. Sleeping arrangements include a full size futon with an extra thick mattress and a single bunkbed above and a 2nd bunkbed unit (downstairs sleeps 4-5). A full size washer/dryer and walkout deck complete the downstairs.
Off the gated wrap-around deck you can relax amid a dense growth of oak & pines, listening to the babbling creek while soaking in the hydro-therapy hot tub or enjoying a cookout on the gas grill.
Have some energy to burn? Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, zipline, whitewater rafting, tubing, golfing, trout fishing, or strolling the quaint streets of downtown Helen, Dahlonega, Athens, Blairsville or Clarksville.
Simple Pleasures is open year round, so you can choose your special holiday time to celebrate or just unwind, relax, and enjoy the fresh air, beautiful views, wildlife, the creek and outdoor bonfire pit.
All you need to bring with you is firewood (seasoned OAK ONLY/NO PINE PLEASE), food & beverages (Ingles grocery store is less than 7 miles, sells wine, beer & a Starbucks inside) personal items!

Our Helen Vacation
Our Helen Vacation
We loved this place!!! Our family had so much fun here. We will definitely come back to this cabin. Only about 10 minutes from Helen or Cleveland. We played the games, played pool, got in the hot tub, watched movies, and more. Miss it already, what a lovely place for a relaxing stay!

Gorgeous cabin. Perfect for a large group, tons of space for spreading out. Very nicely stocked kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed our moms weekend away:) amazing hot tub, everything perfectly clean. We were completely pleased, such a perfect getaway spot. Definitely will return next year!

My husband and I enjoyed a nice mini-vacation at this awesome cabin. We were in need of rest and relaxation and this place was perfect. We enjoyed Helen and other are attractions and returned each evening to the hot tub, sauna and opened the bedroom to let in the sound of the creek and the insects for a great night's sleep. Even managed to get in a few games of pool which we had not played in years. Great home, very comfortable with wonderful amenities. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. My husband and I manage 6 VRBO rentals in Canyon Lake, TX and really appreciated all of the little extra touches that we're put into making the home so welcoming. We just discovered we will be returning to the area in 2 years for a conference. We are so excited to be able to come back and take in the natural beauty of the things we missed this time! Thanks for a wonderful stay! James & Cyndi Texas

Fit our needs perfectly!
Fit our needs perfectly!
Loved the place. It is actually a little smaller than the pictures make it seem (particularly the main floor). It was roomy enough though and felt cozy. We were only able to stay one night. So we did not get to enjoy some of the features. The hot tub after a cold tube ride down the river was nice however. Took my 3 y/o down to the creek. It was a little steep (steps or trail would be nice). He loved the adventure. With two children 3 and under it did get a little loud. The sound of laughter bouncing off the walls is a great memory. Crying however was a little harder to handle. :-) Looking forward to staying again next year. Hopefully for a longer time!

My mother, adult son, his gf, and I just returned from spending 5 days at the cabin and had a wonderful time. The cabin was very nice, extremely comfortable (I loved the bed upstairs) and we didn't want to leave. Pictures and description are accurate. The kitchen is very well stocked, which was nice since we ate most of our meals there. The basement area is great for all ages. Oh, and My son was up early one morning and saw a mother bear and her cub enjoying the contents of the trash can! We loved the cabin and the location was perfect. The only thing I would add is a couple of rocking chairs to the back deck. : ) The others are nice, but there's just something about a porch and rocking chair! Especially with morning coffee. The owner was pleasant to work with ( and response to communications with her were quick. We didn't use the sauna or hot tub because we weren't at the cabin long enough, but hope to next time. And I definitely plan on there being a next time! P.S. the online reservation/payment was a breeze. Almost too easy! For a treat visitors should visit the country bake shop in Cleveland. Wonderful! Review for the cabin - it's all good. And I can't wait to go back!

Owner response: So happy you had an enjoyable visit! I am glad your son saw the bears however I have since purchased bear proof trash cans!!!! They have tried to get into the but have not been successful:-). Rocking chairs are on our list and hopefully will be able to get them very soon. Please keep in mind our return guests receive a 15% discount on future visits! Look forward to having you again in the very near future. Thanks for taking the time to submit a review!
I do not believe the listing description was totally accurate. It was listed as 3 bedrooms, but there were only two with a basement/rec room with bunk beds. Also it was listed as sleeping 10, but there were only 8 chairs for the table and 2 of them were in poor condtion. The property was pretty clean although we did see a lot of cobwebs. Also, there were a nmber of light bulbs missing so lighting was rather poor. The light in the laundry room didn't work at all. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and dishes, which was good. Helen was nearby and the tubing activity there was great.

Owner response: I appreciate you taking the time to write a review. However in response to your first statement about the listing not being accurate, I have to disagree. If you read the entire Helen Cabin Description on the main page of my listing it CLEARLY states the following: (It's down to the lower level for play time where you'll enjoy a pool table, big screen tv and full bathroom (shower) including the wet/dry sauna. Sleeping arrangements include a full-size futon with a single bunkbed above and a 2nd bunkbed unit (downstairs sleeps 4-5). A full size washer/dryer and walkout deck complete the downstairs.) and the pictures display exactly how the lower level is laid out. It also has a door at the top of the stairs for privacy. The cabin is in the woods so there are bugs (especially with all of the rain the area has had). The cabin is treated monthly for insects inside & out. cobwebs have been removed. All light bulbs have been replaced (extra's are kept under the master bath sink). The laundry room light works however takes a few minutes to come on. Had you called upon arrival to notify me of any issues (as stated in the check-in/out procedures) I could have had the issues taken care of within a couple of hours. The listing does state "sleeps 10" however does NOT state dining for 10. There are 8 chairs and 2 barstools for a total of 10. the 2 chairs that are in "poor condition" will be replaced mid-September. thanks again for taking time to submit a review.
Excellent Rental and Very Clean!

Clean home. Very cozy and sweet. You will make great memories here. The sauna and spa do a lot to add to the experience. The owner is super and very friendly. Dont pass upthis place! The only downside (but also the charm of thos place) is the long gravel road. It is a few minutes off a main road and you really need to drive slowly. But the location is wooded and very quiet. We had a great time!

Owner response: Thanks for the kind words! Happy to know you enjoyed the spa & sauna as much as I do!! Hope to have you return in the future.
Outstanding! Even though it rained the whole time we were there, our stay was great. There were endless things to do for entertainment in the cabin (games, pool table, sauna, and hot tub)! I would definitely recommend this cabin for families with kids or without!
