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.

Absolutely perfect! Not only was the house so so beautiful with the most perfect location, the owners stocked the house with Everything possible we could have needed for our vacation. Because of this excellent experience we plan on making this a yearly event.
We love Deerfield.
When you walk in the door you feel as if you're at home and the location is awesome. So ready to book our next vacation vacation
Hi Elizabeth, It was great to have you guys back again! You are always great guests and we love having you stay with us. Thank you so much for treating our home as if it were your own. Welcome back to the Deerfield Family! Nina
Wow, where do I start? We have rented a lot of houses in the past for our family getaways. This was, by far, the best. There was no detail that was missed. Plenty (and I mean plenty) of towels, bedding, pillows, blankets for everyone. You truly only need to bring your clothes and food.
Our group ranged in age from 9 to 60 and all I saw were smiles all weekend. It really was walking distance to everything. I just can’t say enough about the way Nina goes above and beyond to make your stay amazing.
We will definitely be back.
Robin, thank you so much for the great review! Nothing makes me happier than hear that you felt at home and had such a great time. My family loves Deerfield so much, we always want all our guests to feel the same way!
I will look forward to hearing from you in the future and having you stay with us again. You were great guests! Many thanks and welcome to the Deerfield Family! Nina
Great and the cabin is well kept
We enjoyed our stay at Deerfield Cabin - as usual
Although us older two don't participate in many local activities lt is great to sit on the porch and read, knit or whatever
Our children and grandchildren are much more active!! Deerfield Cabin is so well kept and equiped and so convenient to downtown. Nina, thank you for sharing your cabin with others.

Roy, It was so great to have you and your family back to stay with us again, I feel like you are really part of our family! Each time you've stayed with us, you have always treated our home like you would your own and I love having you back year after year.
I hope you have a great rest of 2018 and I will look forward to hearing from you next year.
Many thanks for the great review! Nina
Has it all. Location,amenities,decor,indoor & outdoor space, cleanliness
It will be a true hardship to ever find another rental home equal to Deerfield Cabin! We have stayed in homes & condos in Florida and Alabama that were lovely but none as cared for as Nina's home. We literally could have brought nothing but our clothing and groceries! Nina has thought of everything, right down to birthday candles if needed! None of the dreaded "2 towel sets per guest"and even beach towels included for tubing, etc The inviting patio area with fire pit was a hit with the whole family. Flashlights, candles, insect repellent included of course! It was truly hard to believe we were only a block away from the main street in Helen that offered shopping & restaurants. We could enjoy all the hubbub and then retreat to the peace of Deerfield in minutes without having moved our vehicles! The only downside to staying at Nina's haven was wishing we had more time there and not wanting to leave to see the sights! Hoping for a return trip to Helen 😊
Wow, thank you so much for the great review! It's wonderful for others to read and see what a treasure Deerfield is. You were kind to take the time to write all about the things that you enjoyed so much. I try really hard to make our home feel like your home while you're there. I hope you will come back and stay with us anytime, I'd love to have you.
Thank you again for choosing our home. Welcome to the Deerfield Family! Nina
Perfect place for a family get away
Deerfield cabin is amazing. If you are visiting Helen it is the perfect place to stay. My family of 13 loved feeling like we were secluded in a mountain cabin but were also in the middle of shops and restaurants with a short walk. All you need to bring is your clothes because Nina has thought of everything you will need to make your stay a get away to remember. The six cousins ranging in age from 4 to 17 stayed in the loft and laughed and talked until way past their normal bedtimes. My 17 year old said it was the best quality time he has spent with his cousins in a long time. When I asked the 4 year old what her favorite part of the vacation was she said catching lighting bugs with her cousins. The other cousins said time roasting marshmallows around the large fire pit was what they enjoyed most. It is truly the perfect place for a family get away.
Thank you so much for the great review! It pleases me more than you could possibly know. We love Deerfield so much and to hear that another family felt at home and really enjoyed your time there means everything. Please come back and stay with us again, you are always welcome!
Thanks again and welcome to the Deerfield Family! Nina
