Property description

The newly renovated Cameron House Retreat is nestled in the foothills of Northeast GA wine country, at the base of Mt. Yonah.
This sprawling 5 bedroom, 2 bath home is like no other in the area.
Our home is located halfway between famous Alpine Helen and historical Cleveland, just 1.5 miles off Hwy. 75, and only 90 minutes NE of Atlanta.
This area is quickly becoming known as THE premier spot for excellent wines, with more than a dozen local, highly rated wineries for enthusiasts to tour and taste!
Convenient to restaurants, boutiques, sports activities, nature trails with beautiful waterfalls, scenic drives and quaint towns, Cameron House Retreat is the ideal vacation spot for adults and children alike.
Kids can spend hours tubing down a lazy river, go miniature golfing, go carting, panning for gold, or enjoy a day at the water park, all minutes away!
Enjoy roasting marshmallows by a campfire down by a private shared lake, take a rowboat out for a little fishing, a pedal boat out for a little paddling, or just sit on the dock and take in the breath-taking million dollar views.
With wrap around porches, a hot tub and a warm and cozy environment, our home is a stand-out. With many nooks and crannies, it is small enough to curl up in a favorite corner with a book, yet large enough to secure the privacy of up to 14 adults, and 3 infants!
Each area has it's own unique theme and personality. The main floor has a fully equipped farmhouse style eat-in kitchen, a den with a gas fireplace, 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a dining room, laundry room, and a large living room with a wood burning fireplace for chilly nights.
One flight up leads you to the master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and private terrace, another guest bedroom, and full bath, and a private wing that sleeps 6.
Be prepared to be enchanted by our relaxing and secluded mountain retreat. And please don't think of it as going away, just think of it as coming home...

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are native New Yorkers, born and raised, but have lived in South Florida for the past 20 years, where we work and play and enjoy our family; especially our twin grandchildren who turned 3 in October.

Why the Owner Chose Helen, GA, USA:
Our family vacationed here in 2012 and fell in love with the area, and knew we had to come here again and again. It took some doing, but we finally convinced the previous owners, Carol and Greg Crumley, to sell! Northeast Georgia is called the 'gateway to the mountains'. With balmy days, and cool nights, this home melds both of our worlds, (New York and South Florida), into one. We are very fortunate to be able to share this amazing vacation experience with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet Seclusion, Spectacular Views, In the heart of Wine Country, close to shopping and all attractions. Appealing to everyone!
