About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Bathrooms: 2 Kings, 1 Queen, 4 Twins, toddler bed, porta-crib

Deerfield Cabin is secluded yet 1 block from downtown Helen! We are truly in the center of the city. Come sit on our rocking chair front porch or huge patio, enjoy the firepit, play a game of cornhole or horseshoes. You can listen to the subtle sounds of music and laughter while feeling secluded from it all or, walk a block and you can be right in the middle of it all! The best of both worlds. Park your car in the driveway and you won't need it again until you leave. Everything is close, shopping, restaurants and bars with fabulous food or walk 2 blocks to Betty's Country Store and pickup whatever you need, such a cool store to visit.So much to do and see just steps away.

About Nina Carson

I was born in Atlanta and have lived in Georgia all my life. My husband Tom is a 'transplant', but has been here long enough to have somewhat of a southern accent! But both of us love Georgia, our weather, people and culture, not to mention the many attractions we have to offer residences and visitors. After you visit Deerfield Cabin, we hope you will love Helen and Georgia too!

Nina Carson purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Nina Carson chose Helen

Our house was built in 1932. My husband stumbled across it in 2003 and had such a vision of what it could be. I, on the other hand, couldn't quite see what he saw! My husband along with our 3 boys, myself, friends and some actual tradesmen, transformed this small old house into a lovely, homey secluded cabin! We have before and after pictures in the cabin for you to see. It was a lot of work but we are so proud of our 'old, new cabin in the middle of downtown Helen'

What makes this cabin unique

We, as a family come and enjoy Helen as much as our guest do. We have a very open floor plan so everyone is accessible all over the house yet privacy in each of the 4 bedrooms. Our kitchen is also open and has a great breakfast bar to gather at. The kitchen is fully equipped and makes cooking fun. Play horse shoes, cornhole or enjoy the large firepit in our yard. Or walk a block and choose one of the many places to shop, eat and drink.

Deerfield Cabin is absolutely amazing! You can tell from the attention to detail that the owner takes great pride in this beautiful home. It is in the perfect location, within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, groceries and even a park in this beautiful town. Thank you for making us feel at home.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this cabin above any place else. It Is In The Perfect Location Very Short Walk To Downtown Helen. We Had 7 Adults And 2 Children The Cabin Is So Roomy We All Had our own space and privacy we didn't feel crammed at all. The Yard Is Very Large And offers so much family fun. Nina is an absolute joy to work with. When she says you don't need to bring anything except your clothes and food she means it. The House Is Fully Stocked I didn't feel like I was in a rental at all.

February Fun in Helen

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this amazing cabin 4 times now and absolutely love it! The location is fantastic to walk anywhere in Helen. Nina has decorated it perfectly to give you the cozy mountain feel. The bedrooms are spacious and the bedding is very comfortable. She has EVERY possible amenity you might need and even leaves a lovely box of chocolates to enjoy during your visit. The outside patio and fire pit are fabulous and the perfect place to laugh, catch up and share some appetizers. We are already looking forward to our visit next year!! Thank you Nina!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your third stay at Deerfield. As always, you guys are great guests and it is my pleasure to have you stay with us again. I think this was the coldest MLK weekend on record, so I'm glad you were able to enjoy the firepit and walking to town for some fun! You always treat my home as your own and I appreciate that so much. I will look forward to having you back in 2019 for another MLK weekend! Take care and thanks to you for being such an important part of our Deerfield Family! Have a great 2018! Nina

Everything you could ask for

Fantastic time at Deerfield cabin. The cabin could not have been better presented and was decorated for Christmas. So warm and inviting we had a great stay. Great location for downtown Helen with easy walking to all the restaurants and bars. Spent 4 nights there over New Year with my family and friends roasting marshmallows over the fire pit and walking the woodland trails. I cannot rate this property more highly we will definitely be back.
