About the property

2 BR (sleeps 4); LR, Kitchen, Bath; No Rate Changes, No Deposits/Fees;

“Over the creek and through the woods” . . . to the Log Cabin at Sautee Paso Fino Ranch, a secluded 'true log cabin' with two creeks flowing through the property. This privately owned, family mountain retreat is tucked away between historic Nacoochee Valley and Unicoi State Park – convenient to Helen, Unicoi State Park, Clarkesville, and Cleveland.

We welcome you to visit us and enjoy the majesty of the beautiful and ever-changing North Georgia Mountains where each season displays its own distinctive colors and scenes. Surrounding Helen is the Chattahoochee National Forest, Smithgall Woods, and Unicoi State Park. Richard Russell Scenic Highway and the Appalachian Trail are nearby – as well as many streams, waterfalls, hiking trails, and a wide variety of outdoor activities.

We keep a guest book that includes listings of shops, museums, restaurants, and other attractions.

As you arrive, we personally greet you to give you an opportunity to preview the cabin. We make every effort to provide a clean and pleasant environment for you to enjoy; therefore, this is strictly a non-smoking facility.

The cabin, located on Craig Creek within the Chattahoochee National Forest, is accessed by a gravel road.

Please notify owners about pets upon inquiry. Our pet friendly policy allows a maximum of 2 house trained dogs. We do ask that your pet be placed in an inside carry kennel when you are away from the property. Arrangements can be made for us to provide a kennel if needed.

There are no rate changes for weekends or holidays. We do have a weekly special: pay for six nights and receive the seventh night free.

To save costs for the traveler, there are no property fees (deposit, cleaning, pet, etc); state and local hotel/motel taxes are required to be collected.

Payment is due at check-in with no prepayment or deposit required; we do not charge a cancellation fee. The preprinted cancellation/refund policy stated on your inquiry is dictated by VRBO AND is NOT our policy.

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: 4 Persons

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property is bit secluded and involves fording a small stream. It is well described and is very clean and comfortable. Don is gracious and extremely helpful without being intrusive.



I went there for the solar eclipse, but also discovered the charming Bavarian town of Helen nearby plus Anna Ruby Falls for an easy hike and great natural surroundings. We headed two hours north to Asheville to see Biltmore and felt our three day weekend was more like a week.



Follow Don's directions rather than your GPS. After getting settled, we returned from Helen from the north without paying close attention until we saw the neighbors signs saying their driveway is not a through road. It is not hard, but you have to pay attention and use Sky Lake Road to Fern Cove.



All in all, this is a nice place with great owners (thank you for not tacking on fees... I hope you noticed we cleaned before leaving to reciprocate the good will). You'd have to be extremely picky to find things wrong so long as you don't think this is a high end hotel in a major city. It is a very nice "cabin" in secluded woods near a babbling brook.

Absolutely Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a long weekend at this sweet cabin. From the first conversation with Don to the easy check-out process, this was just so calm and easy. The cabin is snuggled in between curves of a babbling creek and hidden under, and among, giant rhododendrons. Clean and well-appointed, we felt so at home and at ease! We will most certainly be back, we were planning our return before we even left!! Thank you so much!
