About the property

3br, 2ba Home With Mountain Views

Welcome to Our Helen House. It is a very quaint, single-level mountain home, also known as the old Taylor home place. It has been in our family for four generations. It is located one mile north of Helen in a community known as Robertstown. It has three bedrooms, two baths, a carport, a screened in porch, and is situated on about one acre of land. A fire pit is available for making Smores, and WIFI is provided. The old Smokehouse has recently been renovated into a studio cabin containing a double bed, sleeper sofa, love seat, and full bathroom. Please consult the owner for an additional fee if you are interested in using the cabin too.

It also has access to the Chattahoochee River down at Nana's Farmers Market. Take chairs, floats, and fishing rods 1/8 of a mile down the hill to enjoy the Chattahoochee River. Also take some time to shop for unique gifts and fresh produce at Nana's Market while you are there.

After a busy day of hiking, biking, horseback riding, tubing the Chattahoochee, or shopping - come home and relax with a glass of wine on the large screened in porch. If you decide to cook out, a gas grill in provided. A Ping Pong and Foosball table are available for your entertainment. When it's time to go to bed, turn on your ceiling fan and drift off to sleep under a blanket surrounded by cool mountain air.

This vacation will certainly be a memory-maker. Come find out what we mean.

Vintage home with lots of charm. Felt like going to Grandma's House!!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to visit Helen Ga for a Christmas getaway. The setup of this house made it feel like home. My wife and I enjoyed the fresh mountain air while sitting on the front porch wing. Between the vintage furniture and older style fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen it was like taking a trip down memory lane. There were plenty of linens and the house was clean. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and there were plenty of dishes and utensils for eating. Every bedroom had a TV with cable TV. The house has WiFi and a landline telephone (handy if you cell phone reception is weak). Communication with the owner was excellent. We would love to rent this place again if we return to the area.

When you drive up and see the lovely yellow home it makes you feel very welcome. Beautiful yard as w

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 4 days with our 4 grandchildren. The kids loved staying there because of the great yard and the screened porch, which they played on and we all ate out there several times. We also used the ping-pong table a great deal. The house was very well equipped for all your needs while staying there. It was very clean and inviting. We would definitely rent this home again.

It is very close to Helen, less than 10 minutes. Also, very close to the rafting companies, less than 5 minutes.

The owners were very helpful and easy to work with and stayed right in top of everything. Very good experience!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised with how much room was in the house. 2 living rooms and a wonderful screened porch. This house is the exact reason I enjoy using VRBO properties rather than hotels. As we were leaving I was imagining bringing family here for a reunion of sorts soon. Reminiscent of visiting grandparents in the mountains and very convenient to everything in Helen. Not a super fancy resort property but perfect for that 'home' feeling. Thanks for sharing this great space for visitors to the area.

Yellow Helen House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults, 2 teens and a grand baby all slept very comfortably in this quaint, clean, cozy home. There were ample gathering areas for everyone to spread out, but still ample room to gather all together. Beautiful yard, big patios and quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the dining area and had plenty of room to cook for and serve 9. Minutes from downtown Helen. It was a wonderful stay and we hope to return soon.
