About the property

Only 2 miles from Mt Yonah. 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, with room to spare for extra guests. Home has a master on main level for those who don't care for stairs (shower and king-sized pine sleigh bed with memory foam mattress). Full bath with tub and 2 additional bedrooms located on second level. 2nd Bedroom has one log frame full-sized bed, 3rd bedroom has two twin beds. Additional guests may pull out the full-sized futon in the cozy sunroom.

Living room has wood burning stone fireplace for added charm and warmth on wintry nights - just one of many rustic touches that complete the quaint cabin feel. Full kitchen with granite countertops and matching appliances (including gas stove, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, and fridge with icemaker). Floor to ceiling rustic pine on main level, including large sunroom with stunning lake/mountain views.

15' X 30' rear deck has chimenea and gas grill for relaxing and entertaining, with outdoor furniture and umbrella, also with lovely views. Enjoy watching the sunset over the lake! Two acre wooded lot is beautiful year round, with mountain laurel, maples, roses and other seasonal foliage. Large front porch with adirondack chairs for sitting add to the substantial outdoor space at this cozy getaway. Enjoy access to the small private lake, perfect for canoeing and fishing. Two kayaks and a canoe are available for paddling, or for more thrills, there are two local put-ins and a kayaking/canoeing outpost on the Chattahoochee River, only a few miles away.

Hi Jeff,

All is well. Does the write up on the house mention you can watch the sunset while making dinner? It's a great view! Thanks for sharing your house.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice cabin, close to Helen, Clarksville, Cleveland but far enough away to enjoy peace and quite. Like that it has a paved road to get to. We spent most of our time in the sunroom with the amazing views. Had deer in driveway and down the street. Would stay there again.

Beautiful home! Peaceful, Serene, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. Jeff, the owner, was very helpful and keep us well

informed. The home was clean and had all the amenities we needed for my family of five. The lake is beautiful. The views out of the sunroom were amaze to wake up to. We caught several bass.

We took many trips up to Unico State Park and Helen. This place was perfect for us. Thanks Jeff!

The property was fantastic, it was beyond what we expected. It was cozy, modern, quiet and very tranquil. We loved the privacy and the beach. All of the amenities, were wonderful and very much appreciated. It was so nice to just kick back and enjoy quality family time and get away from everyday life. Thank you so much, we had a fabulous time.

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We cannot thank Jeff and Guinevere enough for opening up their property for our family's stay in late June. The cabin is beautifully located and secluded. The views were phenomenal; we enjoyed watching the sunrise and fall through the trees out over the water. We did take advantage of the canoe and had quite some fun!

All the amenities you needed were available in the kitchen and bathrooms. And the property is located within 10-15 minutes of Helen and Unicoi State Park where we spent most of our time. Our kids had plenty of space to spread out and although we elected not to bring our dog, we could see that she would have been quite comfortable herself!

We had an excellent vacation!! I hope we can return soon - Thank you again!!
