If you want to enjoy all that the area offers, you can leave your pet in the fenced area or screened porch. Your pet MUST be crated if left alone in the cabin. A crate is provided for you for no charge and will hold up to a 50 lb. dog. Pet waste must be removed from the fenced area.

Very nice cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We haven't been on a vacation in several years. We are so happy we choose Alpine Serenity for our long over due time away. The cabin was clean, private and provided the necessities for a comfortable stay. Its in a great location, close to Helen. The kitchen is nice and has all you need to cook a good meal. We stayed in the cabin a good amount of time because we had our 2 labs with us. Being able to have them was a plus. This was a perfect place. The only complaint we have is the internet was not working when we got to the cabin and never did the whole 6 days. We were in contact with VBRO who was going to check into it, but never called back.

My wife and I stayed at the cabin for four nites, the accomodations were fantastic, the cabin was spotless, and communicating with Patty was so easy and pleasant.

We highly recommend it, we will definitely return again!

Great cabin and location. WIFI connects but there is NO internet. Hot water is hit or miss. Sometimes there was plenty and sometimes not enough to to draw a bath. Overall very nice with a couple of inconveniences

We stayed over the weekend with our golden retriever and it was absolutely perfect! The fenced in yard allowed us to enjoy the peaceful outdoors while he got to play. The inside was immaculate and had everything we needed! Plus the bed was amazingly comfortable. It is a perfect location and we will definitely be staying here the next time we stay in Helen!
