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.

Location is everything comfortable and spacious

You can literally walk to town which was the best for us. Nothing in the description was misleading we parked five full size vehicles in the drive. Would definitely stay here again.

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

We were planning our 50th Anniversary party for 14+ people and decided to search the Helen area for an appropriate location. We spotted Deerfield Cabin right off and after reading all the fantastic reviews, we knew this was the right place. The facilities were immaculate, and everything is provided. The cabin is almost like a museum, so tastefully decorated. Our guests loved it. The owner couldn't have been better to work with - very accommodating. You won't go wrong renting Deerfield Cabin. Just don't rent it when we need it next time.

We so LOVED our time!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that so many others have not already said! Nina is a perfect hostess. First the cabin is in a perfect location and not only was everything perfect it was tasteful,elegant and a true home away from home. I was there the weekend of Aug 10 with my sisters and bother and their spouses. The bedrooms fit each couple just perfect...And each bedroom is decorated beautifully...The whole cabin was beautiful and had so many personal touches. We were never bored...between walking into to town and driving to the Winery (which was very delightful as well and I must say you have to visit there) We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning with our coffee and evenings with a glass of wine! It rained off and on while there so we were only able to enjoy the fire-pit once but it was beautiful and peaceful! We were not there with small kids or to cook but I tell you, Nina has furnished her cabin with everything and anything you could possibly need or want, from entertaining kids to cooking a huge meal...everything is there!... Nina we thank you for letting us stay at your cabin it has been @ 2 weeks since we were there and we ALL still talk about how relaxing and perfect it was! They are talking of bringing grand kids up and having another weekend with just us again! We will totally save this info and come back again!

Nina Thank you for your elegance and hospitality!
