About Steve and Barbara Fleming

The Smokerise Cabin is owned by the Fleming Family. We recently purchased the property after retiring from a career with the United States Army. We have been so pleased by the number of quality renters who have appreciated our home the way we do. Come enjoy the North Georgia Mountains in a relaxed setting... you will not be disappointed.

Steve and Barbara Fleming purchased this cabin in 2015

What makes this cabin unique

Our place is for those who want to relax and feel like you are staying at someone's home not a rental. We offer a 3 level 3BR & 3BA home on 3.5 wooded fenced acres. It is private, relaxing, comfortable, inviting, easy and convenient to Helen without being in Helen. We are just 3 miles from Helen. This is our home - it is decorated with a warm feel and has it all from slippers to everything a gourmet chef would need. All you have to bring is yourself, clothes and food.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was wonderfully located near to Helen. It was easy to access, set up wonderfully, clean and full of the amenities our family needed. The decor is perfect and lends to such a warm, cozy atmosphere. The owners were wonderful to work with. This cabin is spot on & we can't wait to stay again!

Wonderful winter break!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with our 9 year old niece and nephew twins and sister and brother-in-law! We enjoyed the fire pit, hot tub and pool table! We shopped in nearby Helen and Dahlonega. The kids learned to drive a golf cart on the long drive near the cabin. The cabin was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. This was my second stay and I would definitely go back!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend at this cabin! With 4 gals, a bathroom for

every bedroom was perfect! We had everything we needed and the

kitchen was great! The gas logs fireplace kept us toasty and was so

much easier than having firewood. The cabin was so cute and deco-

rated with many darling rustic details. The location was beautiful and

very quiet, yet central to many mountain towns, shops and wineries.

The owners even left us a bottle of wine! Would definitely return!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as advertised on Great location just .3 miles off the Helen highway between Cleveland and Helen. According to our family, who used all three bedrooms, they slept very well. We enjoyed the fire pit out back. The cabin has everything you need for cooking any type of meal. We will definitely be back. Thank you Barbara for a wonderful stay.

Highly Recommend! Very relaxing and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was so kind and sweet and very quick to get back to me on my responses. My parents were coming from Houston to stay with me here and unfortunately we had several tragic things happen (Hurricane Harvey and passing of two very close people) and she was so sincere and really worked with me when I was trying to move my dates around. Unfortunately I had to fly back to Houston but my dear friend stayed there and sent me wonderful pictures of the place and said she had a really great, relaxing time. When I asked my friend for a quick summary of her stay she said, it was very clean, well-stocked and peaceful. I hope my parents and I can make a stay here soon.
