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.
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.
If it is possible, the listing actually under-sells the property -- the river access coupled with the renovated house make for a memorable stay. We'll certainly book again if we find ourselves in Helen.
This house is immaculate!
We loved staying here. We have used VRBO several times and this was by far the best. This house felt like home and they think of every detail. Our 4lb chihuahuas loves it too. It’s great for families and plus fur babies. We will definitely be back. Can’t wait. Thank you for a great vacation.
Perfect family retreat for exploring the Helen, GA area.
We spent a long weekend at the cabin with our son, his wife and their 3 children. It's minutes away from the charming Helen, Georgia area as well as many hiking trails and outdoor activities. But, we would have been happy to spend the entire weekend on the property. The view is wonderful. We loved watching the stars in the hot tub while soaking after a day of hiking and exploring the area. The accommodations in the cabin are first rate. Top-notch furnishings, appliances and decoration. There was plenty for the kids to do (they loved making s'mores in the fire pit) and ample accommodations for the 7 of us. This property will be our first choice when we make a return visit to the area.
