About Rick and Susan Cremering

We are empty nesters that love the mountains and everything they have to offer. Rick has hiked over 700 miles of the AT and has many maps and guide books to share with guests. Susan loves fly fishing and has stocked the book case with guide books to help guests find their spot to cast. The cabin has been furnished and stocked with our guest's comfort in mind based on our own travel experiences, so you will find an assortment of reader glasses in case you are like Susan and can't find where you laid yours down or if you forgot to bring them! We have two grandchildren with a third on the way and are glad to open our cabin to your family so you can enjoy yours, fully equipped with high chair, gated porch and deck, pack N play, swings and a SKUT! We are newlyweds (8 years) so we also want couples to enjoy how wonderful it is to have time away just for the two of you. Enjoy a tour of Yonah Mountain Vineyards, cook a steak or mountain trout on the grill and relax in the hot tub before settling in for an evening with a good movie and some fresh old fashion popcorn.

Rick and Susan Cremering purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Rick and Susan Cremering chose Helen

We have property down the road and when this cabin became available we purchased it so we can let our family join us to enjoy the mountains. We now have room for all of our family to get together and hope your family will enjoy it as much as we do!

Rick grew up in the mountains and we both love them. We spent a family Thanksgiving together with Rick's four siblings in a cabin in West Virginia and had such a special time, we hope to recreate the experience for other families.

What makes this cabin unique

We hope that others that really want to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing memorable guest experience will find it here and we will make new friends that will want come back and visit again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an awesome place you have. We were so amazed at all the extra things you had that made our stay so pleasant. We had the most awesome Thanksgiving here with my whole family. It could not have been a better vacation. The whole set up with the cabin, the firepits, the hot tub and the mountain stream was the most relaxing week we've had. Your hospitality was unbelievable. Thanks for everything. We loved this place. PS Loved the Popcorn Popper!!

The property was so much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

The owners thought of so many details and conveniences that I wouldn’t have even thought of myself. We stayed the weekend for my sister’s wedding and couldn’t have asked for a better place. Very impressive!

A Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Saute Nacoochie very much! The house was warm and cozy and felt like home. All our needs were thought of and some we never imagined, even down to the smore's! Our family loved the location and were able to go into Helen, to an Alpaca farm, nearby Ana Ruby Falls and the cabbage patch hospital. It was the perfect home for our family trip!

Thank you Rick and Susan for the memories!

Amazing New Years family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 2 children stay. This place can definitely handle more, it’s BIG! There are only 3 bedrooms, but ample space. The owners have truly thought of everything! From the coffee they provide, numerous baking/cookware/dishes, so many books, games/toys for the kids, jacuzzi, sauna, fire pits, grill, outdoor swings, rocking chairs and even a small creek that runs at the back of the property. That’s just to name a few, there literally is sooo much more provided with this rental. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to come back myself! It’s only about 10-15mins from the historic area of Helen. Tons of sightseeing and trails around as well. The one issue we had was on arrival the cleaners were still cleaning and did not leave until around 5:30 pm which is an hour and a half after checkin time. We just built a fire in one of the pits and hungout until they were finished. Not a big deal though. This cabin will defitnley be on my list of places to revisit!

We had 19 people stay, that was listed with the cabin was spot on. They did not miss anything, and we had our Thanksgiving dinner. We lit the fire pit everynight. We had all the comforts of home. Direction on how everything worked. We could not have asked for more. You wil not be disappointed if you choose to stay.

Owner's Response: Andre, We are thrilled your family was able to all be together for Thanksgiving, when we are all together it really brings home what we are thankful for most. Our hearts desire is that we can share our cabin with other families to provide an ideal setting for making memories together. By using the camper pad to accommodate the overflow of your 19 guests, everyone could be together. Rick and Susan
