***** PLEASE READ OUR GUEST REVIEWS ******

This ideal vacation spot is nestled in the woods and borders a state preserve for optimal privacy. The 1 acre property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac with only 2 other homes, none of which are visible. There is no traffic and safe for kid's and pet's to run and play.

Enjoy all the comforts of home and more ..... LARGE GAS FIREPLACE that is easy to operate; TV's for each bedroom and living room; FREE WI-FI; FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN; WASHER & DRYER and as an added bonus expect visits from the neighborhood black cat, blue heeler dog, hummingbirds and the other little critters that roam our property.

The best part of our secluded cabin is found in the back - YOU WOULD NEVER IMAGINE THAT YOU ARE LESS THAN 1/4 MILE FROM A BUSTLING LITTLE TOWN.

***** PLEASE READ OUR GUEST REVIEWS ******

There are 3 DECKS ON VARIOUS LEVELS. The MAIN DECK is covered (not screened) and has a dining table and chairs. The LOWER DECK is large and has plenty of room to sprawl out and relax and finally the UPPER DECK has a comfortable glider love seat. From all the levels enjoy the privacy of THE WOODS THAT SURROUND YOU OR ENJOY THE BABBLING BROOK that runs right under the back porch.

BEDROOMS: Each bedroom has a queen size bed plus the the larger of the two bedrooms also has a bunk bed (two twin beds). NOTE: There is no pull-out sofa. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY IS 6.

BEDDING & HYGENE: We DO NOT USE traditional comforters that hardly get washed. WE DO USE 100-Percent Hypo-allergenic Luxury goose down-alternative comforters for each queen bed. These are covered with 100% cotton DUVET COVERS THAT ARE WASHED AFTER EACH TENANT. In addition there are spare duvet covers available.

***** PLEASE READ OUR GUEST REVIEWS ******

KITCHEN: There are enough pots, pans, dishes, trays and accessories to host a grand meal. (Our Grandma always does a lot of cooking when she is here :-)

This is a very comfortable, up-to-date cabin. It was completely renovated with new interior, furniture, windows, roof, decking and so much more within the past few years.

HELEN is a perfect vacation spot and centrally located for all your day trips - BUT ONCE YOUR DONE FOR THE DAY WOULDN'T IT BE NICE JUST TO PARK THE CAR AND WALK TO DOWNTOWN, HAVE DINNER, ENJOY A LITTLE NIGHT LIFE, DO SOME SHOPPING AND JUST STROLL BACK HOME.

***** PLEASE READ OUR GUEST REVIEWS ******

We have been coming up here for some 15 years and also started with renting cabins miles outside of town, not wanting to stay at a motel/hotel and loving the privacy BUT NOT APPRECIATING THE DRIVE HOME AFTER A FUN NIGHT IN HELEN.

Our cabin offers you the best of both: 'PRIVACY, TRANQUILITY AND CONVENIENCE TO ALL HELEN HAS TO OFFER WITHIN 1800 FEET!'

***** PLEASE READ OUR GUEST REVIEWS ****** These are ALL FROM REAL GUESTS not friends or family members.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As you know, we extended our stay in Helen, GA because we enjoyed it so much. Easy communication with you was very helpful.

The cabin is very comfortable and is furnished with all conveniences, well thought out use of space and exceeded our expectations. The proximity to the town of Helen and Unicoi State Park is as described and is an excellent feature. We took many walks with the dogs, hiked on the trails several times and took a self guided pottery tour among other things. By the way, the food at the Unicoi State Park Lodge is great and gave us a chance to meet some locals.

Hope to have the opportunity to stay in your cabin again

Helen, GA

  • 5 of 5

This property is the absolute best cabin we have rented in Helen, GA. It provided everything we needed; and more. The secluded location was nice, especially with our Golden Retrievers able to run around and play without safety concerns for them or nearby residents. The property provided such a warm, cozy, welcoming feel; we truly felt comfortable and at home. We would enjoy staying at this property in the spring/summer when the river flows behind the property. The property was well-designed, well-maintained and clean. We would recommend this property; however, understand that the walk into town is behind a building and would require a flashlight at night but certainly not unsafe.

beautiful, quiet, relaxing, clean

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was exactly as stated and more. The stream was so nice and relaxing, the back deck was so comfortable, shaded, such a nice cool breeze. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything needed (Home away from home) we only had breakfast there, all utensils, pots and pans and dishes. The stereo had outside speakers as well. Just a short drive to town. I would definitely give this 5 stars and we hope to go back again this fall/winter and will request this cabin.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Once we were able to find it, we found it quite charming. Although it was smaller than it looked in the pictures. Not that it was a big deal for just 2 people and a small puppy!! It was a very relaxing place. We walked into town on many occasions - enjoyed the porch in evening - walked the creek (added more rocks to the waterfall), just an overall relaxing time. We like being away from town - but yet, being close enough to get things. I would recommend this place for a quiet get away!!!

Tubing was great - river was low at the beginning but was ok towards the end. Pretty much, once you have been through town, you have seen it. The putt putt golf was ok, not as challenging as we are used to, but it was something to do.

Oh, and if you are the adventurous type and like to hike to the falls, be careful on the Ravens Cliff Trail Head. Our whole group wound up getting attacked by swarms of wasps / bees that came out of the ground. Not sure what they were, nor does the CDC. I wound up with over 40 stings. They didn't go away and my husband had approximately 30. Visited the doctor as soon as we got back - heavy steroids to try and calm the welts down. Just a word of warning. The other hikes to Dukes Creek Falls and to Anna Ruby Falls were fine - no issues and more of a water fall to look at.

The Sugar ants are bothersome but the amonia spray does take care of them!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a full summer of working long days with little sleep. This cabin was the perfect get away. We brought our Schnauzer with us, and all three of us had a great time. The kitchen was well stocked, and we felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Friends from Atlanta came to visit one day, and they fell in love with the cabin. They are planning to come and stay with their dogs. They were amazed that such a wonderful place was available so close to their home. We walked to town several times. How great not to have to find a place to park the car. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We needed the peace and quiet that it offered.

Cozy cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cozy cabin. It has everything you need and it feels like home. Sitting outside with the forest view and sound of the creek was very relaxing. We loved walking to Betty's (the grocery store), and to the trail in back of the park. The house has the best location. I recommend this cabin to anyone that loves the outdoors. A few ants in the kitchen but that didn't bother me much. Thank you for sharing your house with us. It was lovely.
