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

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.

Beautiful house and really enjoyed the surrounding area. Great trails for hiking. Enjoyed visiting Helen. Great time
Peaceful and cozy
We spend a lovely time with the family in the beautiful riverside cabin. Everything we needed was there and you can tell they put a lot of love in their mountain home.
Beautiful clean family felt so at home right away!
From the minute we walked in to the minute we left this home made my little family feel at home. Kid, pet, and adult friendly. Something for everyone and beautifully designed! Thanks we are coming back
Wonderful cabin to relax and enjoy family!
This cabin was beyond our expectations! It is gorgeous and well maintained. I love that it is close to the fun in Helen and the surrounding areas, but it is out of the hustle of the day. Our family could really enjoy each other and relax here. Loved the loft with things for the kids to play with, but that it was also still close to the rest of the family downstairs. The river is beautiful and relaxing. Firepit was great at night for family fun. Owners added personal touches for the season and even a little gift for the children. I would HIGHLY recommend this property!
We loved this cabin! After Hurricane Florence threatened our coastal home, we made a last minute decision to head to Helen. Christina was great working with us to accommodate an immediate arrival. This house exceeded our expectation. It was clean, very well stocked, and had great/comfortable beds.We loved the decor! The fenced yard with doggie door was perfect for our dogs, our kids loved the games spread through out the house, and my husband and I enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking the river. This house was a short easy drive to Helen and several parks with great trails. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we hope to return soon!
Wonderful place to get away
We went to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. The house was perfect for the whole family. We were able to do some hiking and winery's and there were a lot more activities that we did not have time for hoping to return in the future.
