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 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.

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.

A memorable birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my baby's first birthday at Deerfield cabin with his aunt and grandparents. It was so sweet to arrive to a birthday banner on the front door and to see birthday decorations inside. On the first evening we spotted a black bear in the yard!

Things we loved:

Kid amenities are thoughtfully provided- pack and play, high chair, plastic cups and bowls. There is a playground right across from the house.

Cabin is right next to main street, so we could walk to restaurants, ice cream store, shopping, grocery store.

Kitchen is very well equipped, and there are so many extra amenities to enjoy in the house.

About 10 minutes from Anna Ruby falls and a state park with lake beach etc.

We loved reading about how the family built the cabin with their own hands!

Owner's Response: I am so happy that your son's 1st birthday was so memorable for him and your whole family! Deerfield's location is really great, it's one of the reasons that we chose it, (even though, at the time, the house looked terrible!) We are proud of how it turned out, our family loves to spend time there too. I just took 2 of my grandchildren to spend a few days in between guests. We had a ball! Thank you for your compliments, it means the world to me. I try very hard to make it the best it can be for you during your stay with us. I hope that you will come back and stay with us again. Many thanks and welcome to our Deerfield Family! Nina

Could not have asked for a better place!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazing little piece of paradise in walking distance to downtown Helen! This past weekend a group of couples headed to the Deerfield Cabin to celebrate the 40th birthdays of two dear friends! The cabin was picture perfect! They truly had everything you could think of (other than clothes and food). We sat by the fire pit in the evenings, enjoyed corn hole, went tubing and walked downtown a few times too! Nina was beyond professional and accommodating through the booking process! Our friends are already asking me to check dates in the Fall! Thank you for a wonderful vacation and letting us use your home! We could not have asked for a more perfect getaway!!!
