Loved the cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed over Thanksgiving weekend and had a great time. There were 12 of us and there was plenty of room. The cabin was very clean and well stocked. It was really nice to have a full bathroom on each floor. The outside area was perfect for the kids. They loved the swings and fire pit area. The cabin was a perfect location for our visit to Helen and area hikes. The owners were super friendly and easy to work with. We would highly recommend this cabin.

The house and property is amazing. I highly recommend staying here.

  • 5 of 5

My expectations were exceeded from the beginning. The house is amazing with plenty of space for a large group, and the property makes it all even better. The boathouse is a huge benefit and looks over a beautiful section of the lake. I looked like the hero of the group for booking this house. I highly recommend booking here!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

So many wonderful things to say about this home and our stay. We were there for the 2017 ECLIPSE and we were able to see totality from kayaks on the lake. Unforgettable. The home was perfect for our group; plenty of room, clean, tidy, cozy, all the amenities. Great for the kids and the grandparents. There are some pretty steep steps going down to the boat-house and the water, but our crew did great on them and burnt up lots of calories doing so. The lake is perfect for so many things: caught bream off the dock, kayaked, tubed, and swam. Perfect hop-off point for all of the N GA Mountain sites and locations. Would definitely stay here again. Mike, the owner, was great. Very timely with all the information, lease agreement, and helpful information. Highly recommend this gem. You won't be sorry.

well kept, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Such a woodsy beautiful property. Lots of great porches and hangout rooms. Not much of a view of the lake from the house because of all of the trees but not a terrible problem to have. Canoe, kayaks, inner tubes all available. The only negative I can say is that it's so extremely shallow where the dock is that you cannot jump off of the dock or have water trampolines or play around the dock very easily. We had a great trip and everything else about the place was wonderful!

Wonderful retreat in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this house. There were 11 of us, 6 adults and 5 kids and there was plenty of room for all. We enjoyed using all the water equipment that included tubes, kayaks and a paddleboat. The deck on top of the boathouse was a perfect shady place to relax and read a book. We loved the location off Dick's Creek and the cove area with friendly neighbors. The house had many private spots to read a book, play games or put a puzzle together. We loved building a fire each night to make smores. It was so relaxing we hated to have our vacation end. The owner was very accommodating and helpful throughout the whole rental process. I would highly recommend this paradise house!

Wonderful place to make memories

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place. You honestly don't need to bring a thing other than your clothes and food. We had 11 people in our group and there were plenty of places to sleep comfortably. Lots of space to be together and places to separate to read a book or work on a puzzle. The lake access was wonderful. Plenty of toys to use on the water. We rented a boat one day and the house had a tube we could pull on the back so we didn't have to rent with the boat. Was a little too hot for the fire pit, however, the guys had to do it anyway. Plenty of linens and the kitchen is fully stocked. We only ate out one time during our week at the lake. Mike, the owner was very easy to work with and was always available when I called him prior to our arrival. Everything was perfect so we didn't even call him during our stay. Highly recommend this location.
