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. Ravens Nest 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. Upstairs you have 2 more bedrooms with queen beds in both.

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 smores, roast marshmallows or tell stories.

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.

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!!

Beautiful, homey cabin!!

  • 4 of 5

It was a wonderful cabin with plenty of space!! Living room with beautiful Windows to enjoy the outside scenery. Three bedrooms, plus a loft space with a single bed. Everything you need in the kitchen. Beautiful deck we had breakfast on each morning. It is surrounded by woods, pretty setting, but not a mountain view. I would rent this cabin again!! Great price!! Close to Helen, state parks, other attractions. Great location.

There was one issue. I printed the information for getting into the cabin-getting the key out of lock box on front porch. We followed directions, three of us tried and could not get key. Long story, we finally got in, took a long time to get back to me about what to do about key. We had an 18 month old had traveled 12 hours, we were all tired. The information sent from vrbo about code is incorrect.

Make sure you call before you arrive at cabin to get the correct code..

Would have been 5 stars, but the issue with code for key needs to be solved!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind review. Laurel Mtn Lodge really is a wonderful home. I am sorry you had such difficulty getting in. We do email all incoming guest specific instructions with updated code and the security code. Unfortunately, please note, we do not use the hospitality portion of the VRBO listing, so the information you received there was incorrect. We have found this feature does not work for us. I do appreciate and welcome the suggestion for guest to call before coming and verify the code. That would always be a wonderful opportunity to address any concerns. Thanks again and we look forward to having you return.

Wonderful get away!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cabin and was perfect for our family! Very clean and beautifully decorated! Nice big kitchen that was perfect to cook out big Thanksgiving dinner! Loved the hottub and fire pit! The only thing I would recommend would be better lighting. It was very dim at night!

Look forward to another visit!!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We met family here for the long weekend and had a great time! The cabin is beautiful and in a great location! Helen and Cleveland are a short drive. There is very minimal to no cell service at cabin but that is a plus- keeps everyone off their phones :) had a fantastic time and already planning our next trip

Healing mountain get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family normally lives in China and does not have a home in the USA, so when the Dr. told our mother she would need to stay within an hour of Gainesville for her recovery from open heart surgery we began looking for a place where we could all stay while facilitating her recovery. None of our relatives or friends lived within an hour of the hospital, but this cabin was the perfect place for us all to heal and recover. The cabin met all our needs and more. We credit God for her healing and recovery, but we believe he chose Laurel Mountain Lodge as the perfect place for him to meet all our needs.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to hear that your Mom did very well and is going to make a full recovery. Yes, God plays a hand in our lives everyday and it's always so moving when you feel that has happened. Safe travels back to China.

Perfect Cabin Weekend

This house was very impressive! It was a very comfortable and clean environment. We loved the layout of the house- and the amenities including the hot tub.

We definitely would visit again!
