Bear Affair offers everything from seclusion 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.

Why Patty Stanton chose Helen
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for great long weekend I very much enjoyed my time at the bear affair and would highly recommend it for a couple to spend some quality time together very private and quite loved this cabin.
Bear Affair is a great place to get away. The cabin is cozy and very charming. It was the perfect place to disconnect from our everyday life.
Perfect getaway location for our family.
We loved the decor. It was clean and affordable for our small family to go. We can’t wait to return in warmer weather. The location was perfect and central to so many attractions in area. We thought the attention to detail in the accommodations for their guests was nice. Enough space to be able to cook and feel comfortable relaxing in between venturing out. We loved how secluded it was. Water pressure wasn’t great but just want others aware in case they have longer hair. Pretty impossible to wash. Great hot water though. We loved making fires in the indoor fireplace. . Overall an awesome experience.
Thomas, I wanted to thank you for making mention of the water pressure. Often we don't realize something is off unless a guest tells us. Immediately, I contacted our Contractor to address this situation. We are pleased to report that we now have our regular, strong water pressure. Thank you again for letting us know. Hope to have you return!
Charming, relaxing and well equipped!
My husband and I had a great time at the Bear Affair. It was the perfect spot for a quick getaway. The cabin could not have been cuter and more well furnished. The attention to detail was spot on and definitely made the trip that much better. Thank you!
Came for my birthday
A warm and cozy weekend in the woods!
My girlfriend and I celebrated her birthday by escaping the city hustle and bustle and staying at A Bear Affair. We love to hike to waterfalls and enjoy the beautiful north Georgia outdoors in our spare time, and that was originally my idea when I planned our stay, however it rained the ENTIRETY of our trip Helen!
That's where this cabin saved the birthday weekend. From the moment we walked in the door I knew this little gem would be the perfect place to spend our time.
Everything is intricately decorated with a, you guessed it, bear theme. Not a "creepy, weird, gaudy animal things everywhere" kind of theme, but more of an "OMG babe look! Even the light switch has the cutest little baby bear on it!" theme. The space is filled with beautiful wood with a highlight of stonework around the wood-burning fireplace.
Although the cabin is small, it feels like a very large space for 2 people. The super comfy king bed is upstairs in the good sized loft (we slept incredibly well in the bed with the beautiful sound of rain on the metal roof, it was quite relaxing!). The kitchen has everything you need to enjoy anything from a quick to a luxurious meal. The living room has TV, wi-fi, games, soft blankets, etc. and an awesome fireplace (bring firewood).
Our favorite part of our stay was using the covered patio extensively. While it rained all weekend, we were able to enjoy our coffee outside on the most comfortable outdoor rockers ever. There is essentially an outdoor living room next to the very large hot tub and its all covered by the roof with accent string lighting at night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Bear Affair and highly recommend this cabin for couples looking for a cozy retreat. Although this property is at the back end of the "neighborhood" of cabins and quite private, there is a road that runs about 400-500 feet away, so the occasional sound of cars passing is audible but was never a disturbance to either of us. This place is roughly 10 minutes from downtown Helen, and an easy drive! We will be back!
Helen, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Chattahoochee River, is a re-creation of an alpine village complete with cobblestone alleys and old-world towers.
