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.

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!!!

Great Family Vacation Rental in Scenic Helen, GA

  • 5 of 5

Deerfield Cottage is a great vacation retreat for the entire family. This cabin was immaculate when we arrived. It has three large bedrooms, each with a bathroom and an additional sleeping area in the loft with a half bath. The owner supplies EVERYTHING! The cabin is just like being at home. We could not believe that we had access to all supplies, especially in the kitchen. The cabin was perfect for four adult couples and 3 grandchildren, including a 9 month old baby. The front porch was a great place to rock and drink coffee in the morning. The fire pit provided a relaxing area in the evening after a long day of sightseeing, hiking, and tubing. We used the corn hole game every night! The location of the cabin is secluded and private but within walking distance to the Main Street area of Helen. A park is right across the street for the kids!

Our family takes a family vacation every summer. We have rented many houses that we enjoyed....but none compare to Deerfield Cottage. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy their mountain cabin and for providing everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing holiday. Everyone enjoyed our stay at Deerfield Cottage and we look forward to going back!

Owner's Response: Hi Denzil, Thank you so much for that great review! It means so much to me that your family enjoyed our home, Deerfield is a special place. I've written before about how much my family enjoys our time there. It is our second home and a pleasure to share it with such great people! The patio and firepit are only a year old and has turned out to be a great addition to Deerfield. We love to sit out there, enjoy the fire, make smores and roast hotdogs. (My grandchildren LOVE that)! Thank you for being great guests and I will absolutely look forward to hearing from you in the future! Have a wonderful summer and welcome to the Deerfield Family, Nina

Awesome vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We got married at the Alpine wedding chapel and stayed at the Deerfield cabin for the weekend. We had family from out of town and some from overseas. Such a lovely place, with enough room for everyone. Backyard great for the kids to play and adults to hangout around the fire pit. Even when we had rain at night, we were still able to sit outside at the covered porch.

Recommend this cabin to anyone.

Few suggestions to the owner;

Clear sign for visitors. Some visitors weren't sure the drive way was to the cabin.

More light at the end of the backyard, since it is really dark at night.

We brought large baby gate to close off the steps in the kitchen area. This might be something that could to be mentioned when little kids are coming.
