About Christina Parkhurst, Betsy Washburn
We enjoyed vacationing in the North Georgia mountains and bringing our dogs along for the mountain streams and outdoor fun. We found that finding a house that allowed big dogs was difficult. We frequented one cabin without water access, but after awhile decided to stop spending our money on someone else's vacation home!
Christina Parkhurst, Betsy Washburn purchased this House in 2015
Why Christina Parkhurst, Betsy Washburn chose Helen
We fell in love with this river front property. The house required a lot of TLC, but after almost 2 years of hard work and perseverance we are finally ready to share our mountain retreat with fellow dog-lovers.

Amazing house and Amazing views!
The nicest VRBO property I have ever stayed at. The pictures do not do it justice. The owners have so many upgrades and have so many thoughtful touches!!! This is a not to be missed home if you are visiting the area. Anna Ruby Falls and Tallulah Gorge were our two favorite hikes and ATV'ing at Sunbrust Farms!
Thank you for your review. We love to hear that our guests are comfortable in our home and that they enjoy the area. We hope you consider us for another visit in the future.
Great all around
Loved the house. Pillows very comfortable on beds. Loved playing in the river.
Beautiful house on an gorgeous location! Everything in the house was set up with great care and detail; kitchen is full supplied, board games, wifi , huge TV with access to the newest movies, doggy door, dog blankets,fenced back yard, jacuzzi, BBQ grill, and even a gift basket with flash lights, toys for the kids and dogs. Everything is new and spotless clean. All that with an amazing view of the river. Not forgetting to mention the private entrance to the river where we did a lot of swimming and tubing.
Christina and Betsy quickly responded to some of my questions while we were staying.Their house is located 10 min drive from the enchanted town of Helen and many of the main attractions.
We will love to be back again!!
Thank you for the lovely staying,
and The Cola Rodriguez's
The house was amazing. It had everything we needed and more. The view was outstanding. My only complaint would be the dog yard they leave it on the rustic side I would have like to it a little shorter.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The yard is wooded and very rustic. We are working to make the dog yard more appealing for people with small dogs. We hope you will be able to come back and enjoy the house again in the future.
Beautiful house all we could ask for.
Very pleasant trip
Hope to go back
Perfect family getaway with he pups!
This is the perfect mountain cabin if you want to relax, fish and enjoy time with your dogs! It is clean and well stocked. The fenced in dog yard was amazing. The dogs enjoyed it so much and were kept safe. I have already recommended this property to friends.
