About the property

Three Bedroom Cedar-Sided Cabin with Private Drive

Sheltered from the paved road, the setting of the Mountaineer is completed by the 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, 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!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is a great place to get away and relax in privacy and quiet. It's the kind of place where time slows down, and you can listen to the trees rustling around you while you sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee while you rock in a huge adirondack.

At night, the front yard is level, perfect for chasing fireflies, or toasting marshmellows in the fire pit. A perfect place for a family get-away, without being in the boondocks. The town of Helen, and the natural beauty of Unicoi Lake and Anna Ruby Falls are just minutes down the road.

Just like the pictures!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at this wonderful cabin!! The pictures didn’t do it justice. Was everything we expected plus some. The cabin was clean and just the right size. The hot tub was wonderful and in a very private location. The owner was very quick to respond to our questions both before and during our stay. Will stay ther again if we are in the Helen area.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. I am sure that the cabin beds and floors were clean, because I was training a new cleaning person, and supervised the entire cleaning, including the steam cleaning of the floor that we do each time. As far as paper supplies are concerned, we leave one full roll of paper towels, and 4 rolls of toilet paper, which is typically enough for a weekend like your stay. Our paperwork does make clear what supplies are provided, and that it is a starter supply of paper products and bags. However, we are happy to bring additional supplies if a guest requests them!

Be aware, this cabin has issues.

  • 2 of 5

I have filed a Complaint with my Credit card company about this Cabin . The cabin was not clean, there were dead flies throughout, on the floors and the beds.

The Hot Tub was only usable part of the time, it was under repair.

The upstairs shower drain was clogged and we only had 1 shower for 5 people. This was repaired and the next day that bath was usable.

The Air Conditioning system is insufficient and the Owner will tell you, after you have paid for the Cabin, that the thermostat cannot be set below 70 degrees. The entire 3 days we were there the cabin was NEVER cooler then 76 Degrees.

It's obvious that this Cabin is little used. I think part of the reason may be that people do not return to stay here again?

BTW- if you are staying there multiple days, be sure to bring Toilet paper, the owner only provides 1 roll per bath room for the entire stay. (Cheap). You might also bring some extra light bulbs.

Despite these issues the owner never offered to compensate us for not providing the a cabin with all the advertised amenities. Very foolish.

Owner's Response: I am very surprised at the content of this review, because it indicates that we do not maintain the cabin properly, or be responsive to guest issues. Neither of these things are correct, and the guest's review contains fabrications that I have the invoices and text messages to disprove, nor have I received any communication from my credit card processor. I called the guest several hours before arrival because a last minute check of the cabin (commonly done the day of, or day before rental) indicated the hot tub flashing an HH code, and I wanted the guest to know that we had already called the spa repairman. Brannon came out the same afternoon (the day of arrival) and fixed the hot tub, although it took several more hours to get up to the desired temperature. The guest complained that the next morning that the upstairs shower was draining slowly, and Brannon had it fixed a few hours later. Both items were fixed within hours of being reported. The thermostat is not set at 70 degrees. Our guest info packet requests that the AC is not turned down below 70 (some guests turn it to 55 and freeze the compressor up), but our guests are free to set the thermostat to their discretion. In light of this feedback, I will have an AC rep check because freon may need to be added (temps are chilly now). The guests that stayed after his departure did not complain about the cabin temperature . As far of the rest of the items were concerned, the guest made NO mention about the air conditioning, needing more light bulbs or toilet paper (2 rolls are left per bathroom), or any dead bugs anywhere until his departure. We are happy to stop back and provide additional supplies or clean to the guest's satisfaction or send an appropriate repairman, but we don't know there are issues if the guest doesn't communicate them until they are leaving!! All that being said, I am sorry that this guest chose to leave such a negative and inaccurate review. If he wanted compensation, he could have directly indicated that he felt it was warranted, and we could have discussed it further. Not only does our cabin rent frequently, but we have many happy guests who return!

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.
