Simple Pleasures is a beautiful (winter) seasonal mountain view retreat nestled in the woods only 5 miles from the charming Bavarian town of Helen, Georgia. You are hidden amidst a peaceful forest where you can see no neighbors or hear traffic from your private haven. The only sound is the wind gently rustling through the trees or calming sounds of the babbling creek. With rustic elegance, Simple Pleasures offers all of the comforts of home and then some including FREE WiFi, BluRay DVD & Netflix movies!!!!!!

This luxuriously furnished 3-story private cabin has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, living, dining and game room area. It's the perfect place for your family vacation rental, romantic getaway, honeymoon or church group.

It's down to the lower level for play time where you'll enjoy a pool table, big screen TV and full bathroom (shower) including the wet/dry Sauna. Sleeping arrangements include a full size futon with an extra thick mattress and a single bunk-bed above and a 2nd bunk-bed unit (downstairs sleeps 4-5). A full size washer/dryer and walkout deck complete the downstairs.

Off the gated wrap-around deck you can relax amid a dense growth of oak & pines, listening to the babbling creek while soaking in the hydro-therapy hot tub or enjoying a cookout on the gas grill.

Amazing Stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin is located in a quiet and secluded area. tbe walk down to the creek was quaint and enjoyable. We would definitely return to this site (not far from Cleveland or Helen).

Great place to get away and relax

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying here and we just love it and will be back. My kids loved the downstairs and we tended to all gather there in the evenings. My 6 yr old son loved the creek, and he drug me down there many times. For the nature lovers, you can see it all here. Turkeys roost between the house and the creek, we found a huge alligator turtle in the creek one day, and I got to meet yogi one evening. Also the nightly light show from the lightning bugs is awesome.

My family LOVED our stay in Ms. Belynda’s cabin. It was perfect for a bigger family with kids. My preteen boys LOVED the game room downstairs. My parents loved having a main level master so they didn’t have to do a lot of stairs. They also appreciated the game room as the “noise” all stayed downstairs. My daughter and I shared the upstairs bedroom and appreciated having our own restroom up there so we didn’t have to go up and down after bedtime. We used the well furnished kitchen to bake my niece’s birthday cake and my dad used the coffee pot everyday. Ms. Belynda was a delight to work with and always responded quickly to questions. We can’t wait to visit again. I HIGHLY recommend “Simple Pleasures” and Ms. Belynda!!!

Very happy

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are exactly what you get. Very roomy and a lot of space for people to spread out. The pool table and hot tub were a hit with us. The one drawback was the walkway to the creek in the back was overgrown and taking younger or older people done there was not feasible. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this cabin for future visitors

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I will personally drive over the next open date and cut back the overgrown brush. My apologies! Come back again and I will offer a complimentary night.

Pretty cabin but needs a lot of updating

  • 3 of 5

At first look of the cabin there is plenty of space, multiple beds, and a full kitchen. The piping of the cabin needs to be updated as anytime you use the sink the kitchen floods. As well as the cleaning is not the best as there is dust webs everywhere causing multiple pest in and out of the cabin. Overall the stay was good but with a few updates the cabin would be amazing!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Kelli. It is unfortunate you chose to mention the sink leaking as you did not bring it to my attention until the morning you checked out. The issue was not the pipes but the spray nozzle. A plumber has repaired it and was a very easy fix. As my check in procedures state, if you have any issues during your stay I ask you to notify me immediately. You chose not to do so until 3 days later as you were checking out. You also never mentioned there was a cleaning issue in your text to me. You are in the woods so there are insects. The Cabin is treated monthly for bugs. Where exactly was dust and cobwebs? You state “everywhere”? With very high vaulted ceiling I am sure there are. We deep clean with a ladder every 6 months but can’t do that after each guests as there is typically a guest checking in the same day a guest checked out. The next deep cleaning is scheduled for August.
