Sweet Retreat is perfect if you are looking for a quiet and private get-a-way. The kitchen is fully stocked for everything you may need to cook with. The living room has a cute love seat (with 2 recliners built in) and oversized log chair that sits right in front of the gas fireplace for you to enjoy in the cooler months. The 42" flat screen is above the fireplace and perfectly located so you can enjoy throughout all of first floor, by lying in the comfortable queen size log bed (with feather topper) you can enjoy a movie or just watch some TV. Upstairs you have a full size private bath.
The kitchen area has a table and chairs. Right off the living room you can go outside onto the upper deck and enjoy the view of Mt. Yonah. Grill out on the gas grill. Patio seating for 4 is provided on the upper deck, plus rockers. Sweet Retreat is a heavily wooded lot with plenty of privacy. Once you go downstairs you will see an amazing comfortable king size bed with feather topper. Once you get in bed you will never want to get out. Enjoy our electric fireplace mounted beside the bed. You also have a large flat screen TV mounted on the wall. While in bed you'll see the view of Mt Yonah. There is also a full bath down stairs for your convenience. If this has not convinced you to book your reservations yes, then how does a wonderful hot tub on the private patio overlooking the amazing views sound? There is also a pool table downstairs if you like to have a little fun while staying in.
On the oversized front porch you can enjoy the gas fire pit while sipping a glass of wine, cup of coffee or sharing stories. When finished, simply turn it off and go about your day or evening.
Keep in mind the many places to see and activities offered in Helen that are close by. A few places to visit while you are in Helen is Sautee Nacoochee and when you are here make sure you stop by the Old Sautee Store, built in 1873. The entrance is like a museum and everything remains in the store as it was when it closed down in the early 1900's. Travel the Georgia Wine Hwy. Take in the Gold Rush town of Dahlonega with just about a 30 minute drive. Of course, Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi State park are just a 10 miles drive or so to the North side of Helen. There are many water falls in the area including one called Dry Falls, just inside the N.C line. This one is unique in that you can walk behind the waterfall under the rock overhang. Beautiful site! Take time to visit Smithgall Woods and Tallulah Gorge and walk across the swing bridge. Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia. Beautiful!
We have provided a complete Picnic Pack for your convenience that is located in the cabin. Take this along with you for the day and enjoy the beautiful sites that the North Georgia Mountains have to offer. Check out georgiatrails com for more suggestions of places to see. You'll want to return for many years

About Patty Stanton
We have been using VRBO for several years and have had so many wonderful guest. Unfortunately, we never actually meet in person so this may help you get to know us a little better. We have always enjoyed the peace and quiet of the mountains in North Georgia, Blue Ridge mountains and all areas surrounding. It's a great opportunity to get away from cell phones, computers and demands of everyday life and enjoy nature. There are so many wonderful waterfalls and picnic areas. It's a great opportunity to visit all of the wineries along the Georgia Wine Hwy as well. This seems to be a very special trip for families as children get to experience so much of nature in an unhurried time frame. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we enjoy ours. Owner (Patty Stanton) is a State of Georgia Licensed Realtor 136786
Patty Stanton purchased this Cabin in 2003
Why Patty Stanton chose Helen
More, now than ever before, I really appreciate the cool nights in the N. Georgia Mtns and large shade trees. Not terribly far from Atlanta, but it feels worlds apart. It always makes us slow down a bit and just enjoy life when we travel to the area. Refreshing.
What makes this Cabin unique
While we are staying in our cabin, we always enjoy hiking up to Anna Ruby Falls and walk to the top. It's so close by and it's a great way to start our morning. Occasionally, we'll take day trips to Tallulah Falls and go on into N. Carolina to Dry Falls, Bridal Vail Falls and many more along the way. We are also close to Brasstown Bald and Clingman's Dome. There is just so much to visit and enjoy, you have to remember not to book your time too full, so you can just relax and enjoy the quiet times.

The Sweet Retreat Cabin is awesome!
They thought of everything: lots of pots and pans, a keurig and a regular coffee pot, even tin foil and plastic wrap. Loved the decks w/ a full size grill or front deck w/ fire pit. The hot tub was very nice but our favorite afternoon activity was having a few beers and playing pool. The lower level is much cooler than the upstairs which is perfect for sleeping.
Our only complaint would be the rough road to the property from the main road. Owners very quick to respond. Would definitely recommend to others.

Beautiful setting and very relaxing
We really enjoyed our stay. We were pleasantly surprised by how much nicer it was than what the pictures showed!!
Can't Believe We Are Really Here
GREAT place to stay! The cabin was clean, comfortable and very amazing. The owner, Patty, was right on top of everything and made herself very easy to reach. You could tell by everything in the cabin that there was attention to detail for the comfort of the guests. Great views of the stars from the front deck for relaxing by the fire, mountain views and close to things to see and places to go. We had a Very relaxing and enjoyable stay. You will not be disappointed when you choose this location.

Everything we could ask for
Cabin was perfect for our aniversary! Clean and well equipped, beds were comfy and loved to fire pit on the front porch as well as in the living room. Perfect place for 2 or with a young child. 4 adults might be a little tight. My wife and I loved it and plan on coming back for another visit.
It was amazing
We completely enjoyed our stay. Everything was wonderful from the location to the furnishings and all. Hate that it was so chilly .... but that means we will have to book again when it warms up to really enjoy it all.
Thanks again and we will be back soon
George and Mia
