About the property

Sleeps 7 --- 3 Bedrooms and 2 Baths.

If your looking for a large, comfortable cabin then look no more. This cabin has beautiful hard wood floors throughout the entire home. Laurel Mountain Lodge has 3 separate bedrooms with a day bed in the loft area. The kitchen is fully equipped with all stainless steel appliances and everything you will need in a kitchen. Full size washer and dryer so you never have to take dirty clothes home with you. If you are coming in the cooler months then you have the chance to enjoy staying warm next to the corner fireplace. On the main floor you have your master. Private bath with a double vanity and a comfortable king size bed. Downstairs also has a 1/2 bath. Upstairs you have 2 more bedrooms with queen beds in both. Plus a full size bath upstairs.

You will love sitting in the hot tub on the patio all while relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet this cabin offers. Who loves roasting marshmallows?? Well there is a fire pit right outside of the cabin just for you to have s'mores, roast marshmallows or tell stories.

Driveway: The driveway is steep, but is also a concrete drive, easy to navigate, just be cautious entering the driveway and exiting the driveway and drive slowly. There is a low spot where the driveway meets the road.

If you are coming to have a good times with family and friends then the basement is just for you. The official poker table is ready to be used and waiting for you.. Easy access, just 3 short miles from Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi State Park and about 6 miles to downtown Helen.

Spend some time in downtown Helen taking in the local flavor or venture to some of the nearby state parks. Check out Brasstown Bald - the highest point in Georgia! Head up to Tallulah Gorge and take a stroll over the swing bridge

Fall Foliage time is the perfect time of year to get away to the mountains and enjoy those cool crisp morning, take day drives throughout the North Georgia Mountains, picnic for lunch and hit the waterfalls. Adults can enjoy several golf courses close by or taking in the Wineries, along the Georgia Wine Hwy.

If you've not been to Helen in a while, you'll be amazed at how much there is to do. Plan to stay a while and take it all in. Make those family memories that we all cherish.

So come on up and enjoy our home as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and two girlfriends arrived for a girlfriends getaway in honor of my upcoming 50th birthday!! The cabin is conveniently located but very private!! Everything you could want is supplied and the cabin was new and very clean!! I would highly recommend the Raven's Nest and will plan another vacation there in the future!! P.S. the customer service from Ga Vacation Rentals was above and beyond expectations as well!!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Pleasantly surprised. This property is absolutely beautiful. Our son and his family including my 3 grandsons (12, 10, and 5 yrs) had a wonderful few days . They went on a 5 mile hike while my husband and I enjoyed Helen. The campfire was great in the evening to make s’mores. The house is very pretty, very spacious and comfortable. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable , very well decorated.

I would like to thank Patty and Marie for all of there assistance. They both were wonderful. We would definitely go back to enjoy more time at the Cabin. Thank you so much.

We enjoyed our stay until we had to leave due to the storm knocking out the power then the water shut off due to the well. All in All the cabin was beautiful, Clean and in a good location to vacation. The owners was very reasonable and understanding about the whole weather ordeal. Thanks Patty

A very nice cabin. Very clean and orderly.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, it was a great stay. However, when we arrived the cabin was HOT. It took a very long time to reach a comfortable temperature, but the AC did work well. The ceiling fan in the main room wobbled and rattled and I thought that t may crash on us. It did not. Only one ceiling light in the kitchen area worked. I could not find any spare bulbs. The gas grill is bolted to the deck banister which is ok, but you have to crawl under it to turn the gas on and the lighting combination is confusing. There was no deck lighting either; only the security light shining away from the deck. We made do by leaving the door open and having a good flashlight. All n all, it was a good stay, but small things as mentioned should be tended to Before guest arrive. The cleaning fee that is charged is much too high. I left the place in good order.

I forgot to mention that the upstairs toilet has a leak at the base. Water would puddle at the base overnight. It was not shower and bath drippings.

Beautiful cabin just far enough away to be secluded but close enough to be convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned home from a short 2 night stay at this beautiful cabin. It was perfect, the pictures do not do it justice! I would definitely recommend it and hope to stay there again soon! The 1 and only thing that surprised me is that there is absolutely no (like not till you get bout a mile down the road) cell service, not a complaint just a friendly heads up 😊
