About Daniel Gross

Growing up, we always loved the woods of the North Georgia Mountains. We have travelled all over the world but always come back to North Georgia. You will too.

Daniel Gross purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Why Daniel Gross chose Northeast Mountains

We use the house ourselves and rent it to discerning, respectful guests who appreciate its beauty, charm and comfort and enjoy the privacy, peace and quiet.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Huntcliff Lodge is in a wooded hollow and is secluded and private. The Tesnatee river at your doorstep offers scenic beauty and the sound of clear, rushing water. The main house accommodates 7 guests and the adjoining 'Gingerbread House' offers privacy and room for 3 more with a kitchenette and private bath. There is room for gatherings and also to spread out for private conversations, meditation or reading.

Great place in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and would be such a nice place to visit in the summer in order to take advantage of the outdoor features both on the property and nearby. All of our family enjoyed our three-night stay over the New Years. The listing description was very accurate, the property is clean and well maintained with nice appliances in the kitchen. The owner is easy to get in touch with with quick response time to emails. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Beautiful property. Relaxing get-away.

  • 4 of 5

Owner has been very responsive from reservation to post vacation requests. The home is easy to get to, well stocked, close to shopping and restaurants, yet has an isolated feel. Great for a relaxing, back to nature getaway!

Worth the trip

  • 5 of 5

This home is a great spot for a variety of activities. Use it as a home base for excursions to the local outdoor scenery, check out small towns surrounding the area, or simply stay in and soak up the outdoors in that excellent pool area. The pool really is as nice as it looks. The drive to nearby areas is easy enough to be convenient yet in this serene setting you will feel all the privacy you can desire.

The river just out back is a treat to see and hear (easily I would add) from the deck and there are a number of smaller rapids and even a small flowing area just up stream almost willing to call a waterfall with a quick romp through the water to enjoy it.

Although the outdoor fun sold this for us, the house is plenty nice as well with ample amenities and very open and spacious feeling. The owner is easy to contact and quick to respond.

All in, a very enjoyable trip. We would love to come back and have no reservation with staying here again.

GREAT Property All Around

  • 5 of 5

We took a trip here during the last weekend of July with 3 families (including 5 children) and it was perfect for kids and adults alike. We were familiar with the area and had vacationed around Helen several times before, but this property had it all and we almost didn't need to leave, minus a Saturday afternoon trip to Helen to go tubing! The home is beautiful and very spacious - the highlights for us would have to be the swimming pool (provides great ambiance at night), large deck, screened in porch and the creek behind the house. Also, we've stayed in a lot of different properties over the years and I don't remember any coming close to the amount of amenities, kitchen items and toiletries that were provided. One more thing to add is that the property is less than 15 minutes from the nearest grocery store in Cleveland which was nice and very close to Helen as well. During the trip we were already discussing doing the exact same thing again next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Tim H. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Huntcliff and we welcome you back again. Thanks for your kind remarks. We're working to make things even better. New furniture in the kitchen to reduce the clutter and new plantings around the house.

One of THE best vacation places we have ever been to

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the house being gorgeous and wonderful for kids with all the little nooks and crannies and swimming pool; the grounds and surrounding area are beautiful. It is right on a river front, so my daughter could try her hand at fishing. The main floor is now wheelchair accessible. They are also pet-friendly, and my 3 dogs had a ball. One thing I have to say is that the owner went over and beyond to accommodate all our needs and my questions. Without his advice I would not have been able to get the care I required for my disabled mother while she was there. Also his advice on good restaurants and things to see and do was spot on. Thank you for a wonderful vacation
