Our house is stocked with water-sports gear and life jackets, etc. Gorgeous sunset views over the mountains from the screened porch and two docks. Boat rentals are available at nearby Laprades marina and restaurant (2 miles away; 8 min boatride), Achorage Marina or several other boat rental sites. Nearby Helen, GA is a great tourist spot: It has shopping, camping, river-tubing, waterpark, restaurants, theater, recreation, family activities, waterfalls, museums, history, art, golf, and more. There is also a nearby fishery and campgrounds with playground. Generous master bedroom with newly renovated master bathroom, including a double shower and whirlpool tub.
