About the property

We are in a private area, with a sister Chalet across the road. Quiet and Humble

** We aim to accommodate ALL your needs. NO PET FEES OR CLEANING FEES. The Chalet has a foldUp Pack and Play and portable Babyseat (Cleaned after every use)for your little one and Crates for your pets are available. We have recently removed our cabin from a rental agency, therefore we have no reviews yet from our visitors.

If you would like to make your payment in 2 or 3 installments- please let me know as I CAN adjust that per booking 😃

Our Chalet Cabin is named Owls Nest as it is perched high with a lovely balcony deck overlooking the trees with an outdoor Jacuzzi with Waterfall for 4, (Sanitized after each stay)and comfy rocking chairs to enjoy the scenery and nature surrounding the Cabin. The Bavarian town of Helen is approximately 7 miles away, Unicoi State Park and Lodge is approximately 4 miles away and offers zip lines, dining, Bird-watching, kayaking, beaches, picnics, hiking and much more! Adjacent to Unicoi State Park is Anna Ruby Falls which offers hiking, gorgeous falls, family time and more 😍 You are also near Smithgall Woods and the Chattahoochee National Forest for additional outdoors activities.

This is a gorgeous all wood Chalet Cabin nestled in seclusion with lovely Mountain View’s.

The Chalet has a fireplace, indoor Jacuzzi tub with another Waterfall feature, a separate Walk in Shower, commode and sink. Included are towels, washcloths, soaps, shampoos, a blow dryer. Also there is an Iron and small ironing board. There is a large Flat Screen Smart Television (Netflix, HULU etc. ready) with Dish Network and a DVD Player. There is also WiFi installed via Satellite. As the area is somewhat remote - The Dish Satellite and or WiFi is known to go out occasionally- please understand that this is caused by weather conditions and there is nothing that can change this until the conditions pass. This could be high winds, rain or snow. There is an extensive collection of DVD movies, books and games present for your enjoyment. There is also a small Flat Screen Television present in the bedroom

Owls Nest is pet friendly for your fur babies. We ask that your pet(s)behave and there is a large crate that we would ask you to place your babies in if you will be leaving them alone. WE DO NOT CHARGE A PET FEE FOR YOUR PETS WHILE VISITING. If in the event your pet damages the property during your stay, that will be handled via Homeaway’s damage provision.

We have put together a Notebook Of Things To Do in the area for you to refer to. We love our home in the Northwest portion of Georgia and would love to have you stay at Owls Nest. We live close by and can respond to address any concerns that may come up. We have a 2 night minimum, however if there is a break in stays that would accommodate a one night stay, we will definitely agree to having you enjoy that one night at Owls Nest. If you are coming to stay at our Chalet Getaway and enjoy a nice glass of wine - please notify us if you prefer white or red.

Beautiful View. The perfect cabin. A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a weekend getaway/ birthday vacation and we never expected such an amazing stay. The hardest thing was leaving. The cabin is perfectly positioned with an amazing view of the tree covered mountains. Amber and Charles (the owners) went above and beyond to be sure we had everything we needed for our stay along with a great book put together of tons of things to do near by. It was the perfect distance away from Helen and many other scenic areas. You could basically go anywhere you'd like in a 10-30 min drive. There were tons of other places to stay but by far we found the best. We will definitely be back. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Candace & Caelan

Great little cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was the best cabin we have stayed at in Helen. The view was very pretty and it was not a far drive from Helen or from Babyland Hospital. The cabin had everything we needed; we were left a bottle of wine and candy for our two girls. We will definitely stay here again!!!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Charles and Amber's cabin was amazing. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome, including having wine and coffee waiting on us. The cabin was very clean and came equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. The views from the deck were gorgeous and the floor to ceiling windows provided amazing views throughout the entire cabin. I would definitely recommend a stay at this cabin!
