Helen Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 Northeast Mountains

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.

We had an absolutely fabulous time at Deerfield for Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second Thanksgiving at this wonderful property and it was even better than the first! The new patio, coupled with Nina's holiday decorations made it the perfect place to bring our relatives together. The location is perfect - some of us hiked the trail that starts just a few feet from the driveway and others took a short stroll down the hill to town. The Helen grocery is a 5 minute walk and Hofers restaurant/bakery is 3 minutes! We used all the bedrooms but those in our group who couldn't leave their pup behind stayed at one of the pet friendly hotels within easy walking distance of Deerfield. On Thanksgiving Day we borrowed a folding table and a few chairs to feed 21 people! Because it was a beautiful day and we could enjoy the great outdoor space we never felt cramped. During the day we tossed a football and played cornhole and that evening our North Carolina cousins played guitar and harmonica around the firepit for us. Because of the drought and fires to our north we couldn't have an outdoor fire but we still had a blast! Thanks Nina, for another great Thanksgiving week!

Juan's Group!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Deerfield. Last year we decided to venture into town instead of having the mountains. What a great decision we made. It is in town, yet still in the woods. Every night we had a fire going. There are plenty of comfortable chairs to sit around the fire. Yet if we wanted to walk into town, it was literally down the road. What should you bring? Literally your cloths only. We had been coming to Helen for the past 5 years. We have learned to bring sharp knives, extra crock pots (there are 8 of us adults)...things of that nature...guess what? Not at Deerfield!! Everything you could want or need is available to include sippy cups. Thank you Nina for the updated awesome porch and fire pit and for allowing us to enjoy your home. It's always sad to go home. But with that said, we did feel like we were "home" when we entered again. So for that, Thank you and we look forward to staying again. Ronelle

Owner's Response: Hi to the whole "Juan" group! Thank you for the great review! It was my pleasure to have you guys back again and hear that you enjoyed yourselves so much. You are truly part of our Deerfield Family and I look forward to having you back again next year. My family loves the new outdoor space too! We love the square firepit, its huge and so much fun. My grandkids loved making smores and roasting hotdogs the last time we were there. You are great guests and I'm thankful that you love our home as much as we do! Thank you for your service to our country, take care and have a great holiday season. Nina

Great place, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Deerfield was a great place to stay. It was very clean and stocked with lots of amenities. We had a large group of family and had plenty of room. The very well groomed outside area was a big plus for us as well. Very short walk to town which was awesome! Couldn't have asked for better location. The house also had ample parking.

I feel sure that we will be staying at Deerfield again.

Thanks again Nina!
