Overview

About the property

Three Bedroom Cedar-Sided Cabin with Private Drive

Sheltered from the paved road, the setting of the Mountaineer is completed by a newly graveled, pull-through driveway that encloses the classy looking cabin in foliage. Woods separate you from your only neighbor on the left. There is plenty of parking for guests, with no tight corners or steep climbs so that it's easy to drive in and out of the cabin. On arrival, a long elevated front porch overlooks the driveway and new fire pit area.

Inside, Pergo floors with colorful carpets, scores of knotty pine walls, and soaring wood ceilings remind you that you are in the mountains! A wood burning fireplace for those chilly nights, leather couches, and dining for six with windows overlooking the woods makes the open floor place of this vacation rental like a 'home away from home'! A huge 42' flat screen TV provides hours of digital entertainment, as does the stereo. Wireless internet and local phone service is provided for your convenience.

Three bedrooms make this cabin a smart choice for 3 couples, or extended family. Each sunny bedroom overlooks the woods, with a king bed with topper and plush pillows, plus a TV and DVD player. The largest upper bedroom features a reading alcove with leather recliner in the dormer. Cabin-themed bathrooms with tub/shower combos are located next to two of the bedrooms.

A brand-new washer and dryer set in the upstairs hallway take care of any laundry needs you may have.

The fully-equipped L-shaped kitchen hosts a microwave, flat top stove and oven, full size refrigerator, and dishwasher. A blender, crockpot, coffeepot, and wide slot toaster oven take care of your small appliance needs, and plenty of silverware, glassware, Pyrex, dishware and Tramontina skillets and pots allow you to cook when you feel like it.

On the screened back deck, a huge bubbling hot tub with new cover overlooks the side yard while you soak away the tensions of your day. A new Weber grill and picnic table to the left of the cabin create an natural setting to eat your summer meals.

The cabin is located just off Route 356, less than six rolling miles from the town of Helen, or just 2.7 miles from beautiful Unicoi Lake and Anna Ruby Falls. Take in the beauty of the surrounding Chattahoochee Forest, tube in the Hoochee River that winds through the town of Helen, relax in a horse-drawn carriage in town, or ride your own horse in one of the two stables close to town. Shopping and restaurants are plentiful (including the Front Porch Restaurant on your way from the cabin to Helen), and local wineries make for a memorable day during your stay!

Come stay in the comfort of your own cabin, complete with all the amenities you need!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

It is a mountain cabin as stated, but all the amenities of town. A very short distance to Unicoi state park with Lake, Creek, Kayaking , Beach, fishing and many picnic tables, great place. Five minute drive to alpine village, Helen, with river tubing, many shops and great restaurants, Simply our stay was too short, wish it could have been longer.

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this nice mountain cabin. The location was quite and peaceful. The cabin was easy to find and we liked that it was not too far from some great German food in Helen. We really enjoyed the privacy of the hot tub on the back screened porch and we also had a nice time around the fire pit at night. The cabin was clean and everything was just like it was described. Kate, the owner, was great to work and made the rental process very easy. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Nice but lacking...

  • 3 of 5

The place overall was nice and handy to surrounding attractions. However, there were insect droppings on the hearth, dead spiders and candy wedged between a cabinet and the refrigerator. We had to climb on a chair to tighten light bulbs in the kitchen so we could see to cook. There was a bowl in the refrigerator to catch leaking water. Dusty silk plants on side tables next to the beds. One chair by the fire pit is ready to fall apart if someone tried to sit on it. Whatever management company you are using isn't doing a very good job. No remotes in two bedrooms. Would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the cabin did not meet your expectations. We have regular pest control at the cabin, but due to the proximity to the woods, it is possible to encounter additional insects. Thank you for alerting us to the other items. The bulb above the stove top has been replaced, the cracked adirondack by the fire pit has been replaced, and we are in the process of replacing the refrigerator as well.

Nice and Relaxing

My wife and I stayed at this cabin for our anniversary. It was very comfortable and quiet, yet only a few minutes drive from Helen. Owner was very responsive to questions we had leading up to our trip and we would definitely recommend this cabin!
