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 Northeast Mountains

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!

This is very close to Helen, but you feel like you're on your own private mountain. We loved the privacy and views as we watched the sun come up over the mountains. Not being used to mountains, the road up to it was a little scary at first. The cabin was spacious and comfortable, but could use some updating. It was great having two kitchens. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: It was great to meet you during your stay and I was pleased that your family enjoyed our cabin, location and many convenient attractions. The road is wide, paved and straight, compared to many in the north Georgia mountains, and tame since we paved up to our switchback, but not the same as flat city roads, for sure. We provide updates to the cabin weekly, addressing each note in our improvement suggestions log for the next guest. We have several improvements scheduled in mid May, and a second wave mid summer. Thank you for your stay and we look forward to your return! Keith

Great Stay at Southern Comfort

  • 5 of 5

After a 20 hour drive from Texas, we were so pleased to arrive at this spacious, welcoming home. The home is ideally located near town, but far enough up the hill to have a secluded feel. We stayed 5 nights, and I wish we could have stayed longer. The home comfortably fit 6 adults and 1 teen and has a very large kitchen and a 2nd kitchen on the bottom floor. Plenty of couch space on both levels. Keith was prompt in addressing any small issues we had and was very friendly. Will stay here again the next time we're in the area.

A place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with tons of space and amazing views. Very close to town but private and quiet. We had to cut our trip short by a day and was sad to leave it. We will definitely stay here again.
