Relaxation and fun! Grill or eat takeout on 40 foot decks, relax by stone fireplaces upstairs, downstairs or at the fire pit and enjoy favorite shows or videos on our flat screen. Roam wireless high speed internet, play the regulation size pool table in the game room, or gaze at the Helen Valley lights through floor to ceiling windows on main (40' high) and lower (20' high) decks.

Rustic and homey with breathtaking mountain views. After sampling attractions, Southern Comfort is a secluded space to enjoy mountain walks on our property, share moments with family and friends by stone fireplaces, play pool and games, watch movies, bake meals or grill outside on two huge decks. Gorgeous 4 bedroom stone and cedar Lodge with Cathedral ceilings. Exquisite mountain sunrises on Mt. Yonah, and sunsets over Helen.

About Southern Comfort

After traveling Europe and US for 20 years, discovered the quaint town of Helen in home state of Georgia. We brought friends and family up to the North Georgia mountains for 10 years before opening our place to VRBO guests.

Southern Comfort purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Southern Comfort chose Helen

We walked up the mountain overlooking Helen, saw the view and decided this was the place to build a place to come back to with family and friends. Modeled the hot tub and decks after an Austrian chalet, the house plans after a Montana dude ranch and the fireplaces resemble those of the family ranch in the Uintah mountains out west, including use of local stonework.

What makes this cabin unique

Views, Huge open space, Secluded mountain woodland, Helen Amenities and a unique North Georgia Stone and Cedar home make this the perfect family mountain retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a group of 8 here to stay for Halloween 2015. We had a blast and loved the house. The convenience to Helen was great!

Spring Golf trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Helen and Southern Comfort. House looked very close to pictures posted and everything worked well. Keith responded promptly if we had a question about house. Would stay here again for sure. Checkout procedure could get updated a bit but not a problem. Our other house saw a bear on golf course 2 years in a row now! I keep missing him, darn. Weather was great and downtown Helen was a blast even early in the season. Thanks

Great house for multiple couples! It is like 2 houses in one.

  • 5 of 5

The location and view are amazing. The house is walking distance from Helen but it is on the mountain so it feels miles away. We will be back!

Temple Terrace, Fl.

Southern Comfort is a beautiful cabin with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Southern Comfort was wonderful, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view and all the surrounding areas. The cabin is cozy, with a great fireplace and big kitchen. The only thing I would recommend is a blu Ray player to watch your movies on rainy, cold days. We look forward to returning to Southern Comfort in the near future. Keith also provided a great book with local attractions and near by restaurants with their menus in the cabin. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Great location , house distribution and beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

Was our first time to Helen and we enjoyed the town is a little treasure, the house was perfect for our family size with a great location. We had everything needed handy and available. One opportunity for improvement will be to consider winter linens was lower 20 s and was very helpful we bring our flannel blankets and sheets. Is nice to have the two fireplaces we are a very close family so we didn’t use the second kitchen at all. Definitively we plan to return probably in the summer we learn about all the amenities around during this time. Thank you for allowing us to stayed at your home . Many blessings 🙏🏻

Owner's Response: We like to spread our Indian blankets around the sofas in front of the fireplaces and have extra quilts in the closets, but had not considered flannel sheets, which would have been awesome during our 20 degree week! Thank you for your stay and we look forward to your return to the Southern Comfort! - Keith
