About the Property

One Bedroom Loft Sleeps 3-4 One Bath Surrounded By The National Forest

Bear Affair offers everything from privacy to secluded to Romance! What more could you ask for. This cozy cabin is everything you will need for that much needed escape from your hectic schedule. Tucked away in the woods and bordered by the National Forest you get to enjoy views that will take your breath away!

There is no question that you will want to spend all of your time at this wonderful little cabin. From the minute you step into Bear Affair you will get the inviting feeling that you are home. When you drive up the driveway and see the National Forest lit up with our landscape lighting you will forget about all the hustle and bustle of life. This loft style cabin including an amazing King size bed upstairs that will have you wanting to sleep for days. There is a sleeper sofa if you plan to have any extra guests.

When you first open the door you cannot miss the fireplace in the living room which provides added warmth on those cool winter nights. The fully stocked kitchen (with a bar style table for 2) is available should you choose to make your meals inside. But if you enjoy grilling then you have the grill outside on the deck overlooking the Forest. On the opposite side of the cabin is our outdoor living area with a 6 person hot tub and evening lights to create a warm and romantic setting.

Although you are tucked away in the woods with all the privacy Bear Affair is just a 5 minute drive to downtown Helen. If you plan to go to Anna Ruby Falls then you are about 2 minutes away.

Make sure you plan some time so that you will be able to take in all of the sites but still have time to relax with some down time.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why Helen, GA, USA:
Helen was the perfect place to chose to buy a vacation home. The seclusion of our property provides the quiet solitude for relaxing and disconnecting from a hectic schedule. But when I feel like getting out, there's always activities and events going on in Helen and some of the most gorgeous scenery to take in during a mountain drive. Waterfalls, views, covered bridges, State Parks, gorges, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This Cabin Feels Very Private With The Forest Just Feet Away, Yet, Its Only A Few Minutes To Helen. Its Rustic Meets Potterybarn And In A Great Location. Watch For Deer Bounding Across The Driveway And Bear Cubs Playing In The Forest.
