We live on same street as rental and are HERE to help you in anyway we can. We pride ourselves on our homes being clean and well maintained.

We check our cottages often to keep them well maintained and our goal is for you to have a relaxing time during your stay. We are here to help you or a phone call away.

Come to the North Georgia mountains near Helen like it use to be. No crowds, very quiet.

VERY CLEAN Rental cabin
Large flat screen TV in living area.

WONDERFUL WINERIES ALL AROUND US TO TOUR

This home has its own slide into the river behind the home

You will not find a cleaner home rental in this area!!

We supply all those things you normally have to buy with other rentals, laundry soap, toilet paper, elect dish soap, etc..We want our guests to relax not have to worry about the little things.

Fireplace in Living room and Master Bedroom

The Garden Cottage is more upscale then most homes for rent in this area & is decorated in an old farmhouse style inside with boarded walls & high ceilings. French doors in every room open up to the huge porches with river views. 6 tubes are supplied in the warmer months. We even have a tube run, rope swing ,slide & ..great swimming area.

There is a large flat rock to sit on in middle of river right in front of this cottage, perfect for lounging in the river. Wildlife comes daily and you can watch the deer and wild turkey in your backyard (not to mention Marshmallow the bear, who makes an appearance now and then). The cottage's land is length-ways on the river so you have over 1000' on the river

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We came from south Florida for a vacation here and never left. We love it here. Both of us are in Hospitality, so you know you are getting good service.

Why the Owner Chose Helen, GA, USA:
WE loved the river. We go in it everyday in the summer and sit by it when water is too cold.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We are in a quiet area of the river, do not have people going down it all day yelling like in Helen. So you can enjoy the sounds and wildlife.
