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.

The main floor features a gated wrap-around porch, a stacked stone wood-burning fireplace and soaring two-story windows that bring the outdoors in. The fully equipped kitchen features maple cabinets, granite counter tops, cookware, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot, blender, crockpot and smooth top stove.
Enjoy the pillow-top king size bed in the master with a full bath, slate shower, tub & tv.

The private upper level offers a queen size pillow-top, full bath, tv and reading nook.

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.

Have some energy to burn? Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, zipline, whitewater rafting, tubing, golfing, trout fishing, or strolling the quaint streets of downtown Helen, Dahlonega, Athens, Blairsville or Clarksville.

Southern Water Trails offers Stand Up Paddleboard tours and lessons 7 days a week/March-November.

Discover North Georgia Wine Country and the Unicoi Trail with VIP Southern Tours. The full-day tour includes tastings at 5 wineries, gourmet picnic lunch, bottled water, hosted transportation and a little history and points of interest along the way.

Enjoy art? The Summer Art Amble weekend is held in June and the Holiday Road Open House Weekend is held in November. For art year round visit Habersham, White, Rabun and Towns Counties.

If you are craving pizza, stop in Nacoochee Village Tavern & Pizzeria (kid friendly) for brick oven pizza, hoagies, hearth baked focaccia bread, craft beer, wine and sodas.

Simple Pleasures is open year round, so you can choose your special holiday time to celebrate or just unwind, relax, and enjoy the fresh air, beautiful views, wildlife, the creek and outdoor bonfire pit.

All you need to bring with you is firewood (seasoned OAK ONLY/NO PINE PLEASE), food & beverages (Ingles grocery store is less than 7 miles, sells wine, beer & a Starbucks) personal items!

Returning guests receive a 15% discount on all future reservations. We love friends & family referrals and offer a 10% discount on their first visit.
