About the property

4 Bedroom Luxury Retreat in Helen GA, with Hot Tub, Wifi, Fireplace, Fall Golf

Perched at the crest of one of Helen's curving peaks, Hillside Elegance offers you a spacious multi-level home of over 3000 square feet. This beautiful retreat boasts soaring wood ceilings, and real wood floors. The two story living room offers comfy rustic couches, a cut stone gas fireplace, huge flat screen TV and double door access out to one of three sumptious decks that span the back of the house, enclosed by the trees of a scenic wooded hillside on the 10th fairway of the Innsbruck golf course.

The main deck level boasts a quiet reading nook, bistro seating for your morning coffee, and a pair of adirondack chairs for that frosty afternoon brew or chilled glass of wine. Prepare a meal in the fully equipped kitchen with warm would designer cabinets and black appliances, or sizzle some steaks on the charcoal grill on the lower deck. The elegant dining room connects to the kitchen, and offers a sunny spot to sit in the adjoining window alcove.

The spacious master bedroom is conveniently located on the main floor, with its beautiful rustic pine furniture, walk-in closet, and huge master bathroom with double sink, large shower, and separate toilet enclosure. The master bedroom opens with double glass doors onto the main level screened deck. The second-floor bedroom sports its own private bathroom, shared only when extra guests use the twin and trundle in the sunny loft.

The lower level is accessed by a flight of carpeted stairs with two more private bedrooms, and a shared bath off the impressive game room with its pool table, large TV, wet bar kitchenette, sleeper sofa, and double door access to the covered hot tub deck.

Perfect for an extended family gathering, spacious lodging for a wedding, a golf outing for the guys, or a reasonably-priced couples weekend! Why stay in a hotel, when you can relax in this beautiful hilltop retreat?

Restaurants and shopping are just minutes away, with all the the personal comforts that only a home can provide when you want to relax.

Come sample local wines at the Habersham or Yonah Mountain wineries, browse for antiques, sample a hand-tossed pizza or freshly-roasted coffee at Nacoochee Village, or dine in Helen overlooking the Chattahoochee River. The horse-drawn carriages are a perfect way to see the town, and local state parks provide gorgeous waterfalls and tons of hiking opportunities.

Have more than 12 guests? I can recommend other locations on the same block.

About Sue

Although we live in a very desireable vacation area, Palm Beach County Florida, we long for a change of weather, and finally were able to purchase this beautiful home in Helen. Where we get to zip line, hike tube, wine taste horseback ride and shop.

Sue purchased this house in 2007

Why Sue chose Helen

After surviving several Hurricanes, we decided we needed to NOT HAVE ALL OUR EGGS IN THE SAME (Palm Beach) BASKET! So I remembered Helen as being one of my favorite family destinations that was safe from hurricanes. I set out to find a great house that was easily accessible, without a steep driveway, in town close to the fun, with city water.

What makes this house unique

I wanted a safe place where the house would not be destroyed by vandals if it was empty and since it is in a upscale gated golf development with sleeping space for 12 and high ceilings beautiful distressed wood, 4 porches a hot tub, and fire pit. This was the one!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to Helen and rented this house in the summer. It was so beautiful that we returned for my husbands birthday and to enjoy Octoberfest, and cooler mountain air. Everything was perfect, and we will use this house again and again.

This is the home to come and stay at when in Helen. The house was well taken care of, and absolutely beautiful. There was plenty of room for all my family, we had 8 to come and stay. It was very convenient to downtown Helen. My brothers and nephews are big golfers, and the course at Innsbrook offered a challenging round, with some of the most beautiful scenery around. We are definitely coming back to stay. I highly recommend this property.

Great home for large family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

Great location in Helen, GA. Home offered great common areas as well as separation. Very quiet secluded but you are still just minutes away from all the activities that Helen has to offer. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and grilling dinners. We also enjoyed the community pool. Susan Nelson, the owner, was great to work with. She promptly answered all my questions. This was our first time booking through HomeAway and it was a wonderful experience.
